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.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.
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.

    Natawa ako sa isang comment sa youtube tungkol sa palabas na ito...
    Kadalasan daw mga Asians yung finifeature kaya lumalabas tuloy na mga pasaway ang lahi natin hehehe
    kadalasan talaga asian ang pasaway lagi ang dala mga pagkain.



    Agree... funny thing is, even sa ibang bansa other than australia, asians ang pasaway hahaha! sa pinoy, usually ang dinadala, yosi, argentina / purefoods corned beef, pancit canton, sinigang mix bwahahah

    Nakakatakot nga yung Border Security na yan. Tip ng friend ko not to take budget airlines kasi mas suspicious sila sa mga tourists na sakay dun. Ngeek, kaya nga nagbudget airline kasi mahal ang regular fare to Oz. Sagot niya naman, abang nalang lagi ng deals online para makatipid pa rin. I asked her what food she wants me to send her in Perth. She refused baka daw ma-blacklist kaming dalawa. Dito nalang daw sa Pinas niya kakainin yung mga food na namimiss niya. :D

    I read somewhere in another forum that they were provided a list on restricted items. Hope I can get hold of that lady so we can request a copy of that list.

    Mahigpit sila sa mga may past criminal records. May isang episode, yung immigrant may granted visa, dineclare naman niya yung criminal record niya kaso hindi siya dumaan sa consulate (kailangan pala yun)...kaya cinancel visa niya.
    Kakalungkot nagbabagong buhay na yung tao kaso di pa rin siya pinatuloy.

  • aldousnowaldousnow SydneyPosts: 494Member
    @LokiJr yung sa mga plastic bag na may zipper.. dun ko sya nilagay.. hindi kailangan sa packaging tape kasi dapat nga madali nila makita at macheck yun. ok lang mangamoy kasi sa checkin baggage naman sya hindi naman hand carry.

    Neighbor ko dito sa Pinas yung matandang nagwawala na may dalang papaya at menthol candy na di dineclare. Maingay talaga yung tao na yun pero mabait naman.
  • LokiJrLokiJr Quezon CityPosts: 2,616Member, Moderator
    Ginawa ng nanay ko yan dati, nagpuslit ng papaya sa bag. Hindi rin niya sinabi sa akin kasi alam niyang pagagalitan ko siya.

    Ayun, hindi kami pinaboard sa flight kasi pumutok yung papaya bago pa naload sa eroplano...Ang kalat pa naman.

    Going back to the topic, napansin ko random naman yung thorough inspection nila...so basta wag kahina-hinala mga bitbit mo, ok lang siguro hehe
