    Reply to @donking: Of course sir it would be logically lower. :D Pero di ka pa din makakaligtas sa 10K+ na travel tax. Grabe noh. Better inquire coz the rates are changing from time to time. In USD ung usapan so pag nag-fluctuate sa forex uusog din ung rate nila. You're always welcome and see you soon bro. :-)

    Reply to @donking: Ayos! :D Yung nangyari lang sakin mejo malayo ung quote dun sa actual ng mga more or less 8k I think. Or baka kasi di pa nila sinasama yung service fee nila dun. Pamasahe lang nilatag nila. Ang nakakatawa lang nung nagaantay ako ng bank details nila sobrang hapit in-email nila sakin ng 12:53PM tapos gusto nila by 2PM na-send na sa kanila yung scannep copy ng deposit slip. @-) Kumaripas ako ng takbo papunta sa pinakamalapit na Chinabank kahit umuulan! Hahaha! Pag di daw kasi naihabol magiiba na naman ang rate kinabukasan. So much for that, all in all it's really a good deal and a big help for us 1st-time migrants. Di ko nga alam kung ano yung catch jan eh. Alam mo naman tayong mga Pinoy pag nakakamura we tend to wonder kung ano yung catch bakit ganun di kasi tyo sanay. :-) Yes, see you soon! Baka nga mauna ka pa samin pumunta dun kami sa January pa dami pa kasi inaasikaso. Hehehe.

  • sohcsohc SydneyPosts: 249Member
    Hi Shrewd, welcome to SA.

    That's not a problem, you can enter anywhere in Australia. In the declaration card just write the address of your relatives. Sa Sydney din ako dati nag initial entry since andun lahat ng kapatid ko.

    Cheers.

    Set tayo EB mga SA peeps hehe :)

    Thanks po @sohc for the response at for the warm welcome! Hehe glad to see madami po palang pinoy sa adelaide para di malungkot  meron pa po ako few questions okay lang po ba?tia!
    1. Wala po ba talagang visa label ang student visa?kasi po tinatanong ako mga relatives ko baka daw magkaprob sa airport/immi pag aalis nako..la kasi ako idea dito promise hehe
    2. If ever po I have questions regarding my visa san po ako pwede magtanong?do i have to go straight to the embassy?kailangan po ba mag pdos pa kahit stud visa lang po?
    3. Regarding sa sinabi po ni @sohc san po ba makikita yung declaration card na yun?kasi po dko din po alam yun..
    ..sorry po if madaming tanong,i applied on my own po kasi kaya no idea ako sa mga ganung bagay.wala pako matanungan kaya i really need your help guys baka meron po nakakaalam sainyo plssss share po..thanks po ng marami!!
  • rbolanterbolante North RydePosts: 247Member
    Reply to @Shrewd: i'll answer #1 and #2 as i have no idea about #3.
    #1: Inalis na po talaga ng AUS ang visa label. We may find this corny pero ganun na sila ngayon and I think sila pa lang ang naka-ganito and in the near future di malabong gawin din to ng ibang bansa. All you need to bring is your visa grant letter.
    #2: You can ask the AUS embassy for inquiries. For PDOS, no need for it coz the seminar is for migrants only.

    Just correct me guys if I'm wrong. :D

    @rbolante thanks po sa reply! Nagwoworry lang kasi mga relatives ko baka daw nascam lang ako haha  eto po may new question ako: meron po ba dito may alam na accommodation near UniSA city east campus?kahit room for rent lang or shared sa flat. Mas maganda kasi pag pinoy kasama mo sa bahay syempre mas masaya parin hehe. Tia!
  • donkingdonking MelbournePosts: 258Member
    Reply to @rbolante: ganon! 1 hour lang iba na presyo? Hirap sa akin kasi nasa work ako... kelangan magleave. Mauuna ka sa akin kasi march pa initial entry ko.

    Kung sa work, tingin ko kahit cguro lihis muna sa linya natin dito sa pinas ang unang work makaraos lang sa bayarin sa araw araw. Saka na tyo maghanap pag may local experience na.

    Sama kami sa EB... manila ba? kelan ba yan? :-D

    Hello, tanong ko lang kung how much usually ang agent fee to help you look for a house to rent? tska what are the requirements to subscribe for internet lalo na kung nagrerent ka lng temporarily? do they have prepaid sim cards which includes data plan?

    thanks in advance!

  • palkoopzpalkoopz AdelaidePosts: 18Member
    @ellah - thanks for your reply!

    meron pa po akong isang tanong, usually how much po ang taxi from airport to adelaide? or sa mga taga port wake field magkano po? mahal ba magtaxi in south australia?

    salamat po!
  • sohcsohc SydneyPosts: 249Member
    @palkoopz
    isang beses lang ako ngtaxi nung nagkaroon ako ng 2 interview ng same day. Airport to adelaide around $20+, may bus din naman sa airport straight to CBD.

    @sohc
    salamat! ung tutuluyan kc namin pansamantala is port wake field 5550 ang postal code. malayo daw sya sa adelaide. 97kms from adelaide ata so pagnagtaxi kami baka malaki masyado ang abutin.

    ung sa question ko pala earlier, usually how much ang agent fee kung tutulungan ka nila mghanap ng bahay?

    thanks ulit!

    @palkoopz bro my BIG advise don't go there. That's too FAR! Walang public transpo from Adelaide to that area. May mga branch kami sa remote sites kaya nakita ko na gano kalayo yan. Taxi lang ang way mo to go there and wala din akong nakikitang taxi na bumabyahe ng ganyan kalayo.

    The location can also affect your job application, I experienced that kind of issue.

    That Port Wakefield is like applying a job in Makati but living in Tarlac.

    Try searching at adelaide gumtree for temp accommodation bro.

    I was surprised when I checked the location on my GPS.

    @sohc salamat sa advice pre. Taga dyan kc ang kilala namin dyan sa adelaide. Relative ng sis-in-law ko. Meron din kc ako kasama bata so mas prefer ko kasama mga pinoy. Temporary lng nman hanggang makahanap ng place na malapit sa work. Pero cge check ko din ung website na sinabi mo.

    Dito kc sa SG we need to pay the agent fee half or full amount ng rent depende kung gano katagal ka.

    Thanks ulit!
