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.

    I guess random check lang, last year nasa Melbourne and Sydney kami wala naman. Hinde naman kami naharang or napahinto for lugggage check more on questions lang from customs officer tapos the usual xray scan ng luggage.
  • gemini23gemini23 WinPosts: 265Member
    Mukhang poor cguro kasi ako then mga sagot ko sa tanong kung ano gagawin ko sa Aussie was magt-tour sa different states.Hind cguro makapaniwala, kaya pagdaan ko ng immigration pinapunta kaagad ako sa border security police for questioning then akala ko ok napagdating malapit na luggage scan pa-exit, yun dumating yung the same police then pinatabi ako from the line for further check.

    Follow your heart but trust your gut.

And also provide financial documents to support Kung Saan galing ung pera para just in case Na tanungin nila may mapapakitang docs. Hth!

    Here is what is mentioned in http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4443.asp#items,

    Currency
    There is no limit to the amount of currency you can bring in or out of Australia. However, you must declare amounts of A$10,000 or more in Australian currency or foreign equivalent. You must disclose any promissory notes, travellers’ cheques, personal cheques, money orders, postal orders or other bearer negotiable instruments, regardless of value, if requested by a Customs and Border Protection officer or police officer.


    But if I were you guys, para iwas aberya na din either sa AU immigration or Philippine immigration, most specially, try to bring na lang below 10K. Think of other ways on how you can send your money to AU like bank transfer, ATM withdrawal, etc. It may entail cost such as bank fees but saves you the pain of going through possible interrogations.

    Bakit naman kasi kayo magdadala ng more than $10k cash sa ibang bansa...nakakatakot hehe..

    I think kahit 1 family kayo, let's say a group of 4 people, 2 dun are PR visa holder and 2 are Tourist visa holders.. you also bought your tickets separately.. considered as 2 units kayo. Ang sinasabi sa CFO is 1 family.. 1 ticket transaction.. so considered as 1 unit yun.
