Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

  • atheleneathelene SydneyPosts: 371Member
    Nakakaaddict nga ang tv series na ito hahaha. I've been watching for two days straight, somewhat nakakaaliw, nakakatakot, at nakakaparanoid tuloy.

    May napanood ako na episode, AUD 400k yung dala ng film director and dineclare nya naman yung pera. Comment nung isang officer na it's the largest amount of money he'd seen, binilang kasi talaga nila lahat ng pera (as in by hand, not by machine). Hindi daw kasi makapagbukas ng Australian bank account yung company nila kasi hindi sila based sa AU, so no choice kaya bitbit talaga nila yung pera. Pinayagan naman siya lumusot kasi nagdeclare naman and tama ang declaration. Talagang nasa backpack lang yung pera, walang plastic or anything! Gosh, parang ako pa yung kinabahan for him kasi what if may magnakaw nung pera? Anyway, based on the show, unli money naman ang pwedeng dala basta madeclare mo. Yung sa ibang episodes kasi pag hindi nagdeclare, fina-fine nila tapos minsan icoconfiscate talaga (gaya nung Chinese ex-cop na may bitbit na AUD 30k+ ata yun, sadyang ni-conceal pa nya kaya super suspicious yung border security).

    Matanong ko lang po, hehe. Magpapadala ako ng suitcase to AU via my cousin (AU citizen), mostly ang laman ng ipapadala ko is summer clothes, toiletries, isang duvet, and camera tripod. Hindi kasi sila kasya sa baggage na dadalhin ko sa July kasi may bitbit pa akong mga reference books (student kasi, and hard-to-find books sila hehe). I plan to make a declaration list of all items inside para alam niya kung ano ang nasa loob in case tanungin sya. Iniisip ko na i-indicate ko rin kung saan galing yung mga gamit (yung duvet kasi galing IKEA Taiwan and pina-dry clean ko and ni-vacuum sealed naman) para sure and informed sya. Hindi naman siguro magiging issue yun sa border security kung ako yung nagpack for her right?

    I also have concerns about my 4+ pcs of external HDs. Sabi po ni @Bryann na hindi naman chineck ang HDDs nya, but I'm a little worried kung likely ba na i-check because of the quantity? Hehe I designate different HDs kasi per category (one for photos, one for important docs like scans of diploma/transcript and work portfolio, another for Mac Time Machine backup, and one for movies/music).

    Hello Everyone. Tanong ko lang po kasi I got my multiple entry tourist visa sa ibang bansa. Ngayon mag for good na ako sa pinas. Nung binasa ko yung visa na binigya sa akin may nakalagay doon na inform them with changes in circumstances including address, name etc. now my question is kailangan ko ba talaga i update yung visa ko since ang address ko ay magiging Philippines or kahit hindi na. Hindi kasi immi application ko kaya medyo mahirap. Paano po ba yun? salamat sa sasagot.
