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.

    any experience in bringing their bicycle (mine is road bike) to Australia? Plano ko kasi dalhin yung bike ko kesa ibenta ko. At least may gamit na agad akong bike. I love cycling kasi. :D
    Yung brother-in-law ko nag dala ng bike from SG to AU. Nag linis daw sila ng bike pati gulong. Bawal kasi mag dala ng lupa galing sa ibang bansa.

    Hi guys, I'm taking birth control pills because I have irregular menstrual periods, can I bring my pills with me? Or would it be such a hassle? Or would be much better if I get my pills once I get there? Thanks

    Sa Cebupac, meron silang sports equipment baggage. Additional pay sya. 1300 ata yung 15Kg. Then need walang hangin ang gulong, tapos pag claim mo na nasa ibang area sya ng baggage counter, dun sya sa mga oversize luggage. Tapos dineclare ko rin sa immi na baka may soil. tatanong lang naman kung ano yung may soil.

    @icel527 as per PDOS orientation I attended:
    1. Nebulizer is allowed provided it is handy/portable type and can be put in a small plastic
    2. Declare it if the money you will bring shall exceed to 10,000 USD

  • jedh_gjedh_g Perth WAPosts: 1,381Member, Moderator
    @icel527 I suggest don't attempt to exceed na lang kasi may fifill-up ka pa ng declaration form (ICTR) sa Australia. Inniwasan kasi nila money laundering acts. If you will compute, sapat na nga around 4-5k AUD kasi ang 3k AUD nasa 100k pesos na (35 pesos: 1 AUD).

  • jedh_gjedh_g Perth WAPosts: 1,381Member, Moderator
    @icel527 shoes and bags wala naman restriction basta as much as possible authentic at hindi fake or replica kasi mahigpit din sila sa fraud brands kasi baka akalain nila ibebenta mo don. Try watching bordersecurity australia at youtube. Marami ka mapapanood don episodes. Basta ang rule, in case of doubt declare it. Bawal ang fruits, wooden products na pwede bahayan ng langgam or insects.

    Guys, meron ba dito nagship or planning to ship furniture from dubai to oz? Nagcompute kasi ko parang mas makakamura kung i-ship compared to purchasing in oz.

    May nabasa din ako na usually daw may mga gas range / oven na sa mga apartments. At isa ko pa nabasa na hindi nagkasya yung king size bed nya sa bedroom kasi mas maliit daw ang flats sa oz compared to Dubai.

    Any insights on what to bring / not to bring when moving from dxb to oz? Salamat!

    Mga boss congrats sa mga naka-Big move na. May question ako regarding sa dadalhing gamit sa Australia. Pwede ba dalhin mga books na xeroxed and hardbound? Ang concern ko kasi eh hindi orignal mga yun at hindi ko alam kung maquestion sa immigration. Pwede ba mga boss?

    Guys, meron ba dito nagship or planning to ship furniture from dubai to oz? Nagcompute kasi ko parang mas makakamura kung i-ship compared to purchasing in oz.



    May nabasa din ako na usually daw may mga gas range / oven na sa mga apartments. At isa ko pa nabasa na hindi nagkasya yung king size bed nya sa bedroom kasi mas maliit daw ang flats sa oz compared to Dubai.



    Any insights on what to bring / not to bring when moving from dxb to oz? Salamat!

    yes white appliances term nila dito for (oven, fridge, dryer, washing machine) mostly meron na yan pag mag rent kayo ng bahay. So pwede nyo yan benta yang sa inyo dyan. standard naman ang doors dito so pwede mapasok yang king size bed ang mahirap lang is depends on how to transport it to your flat/apartment.

    if you really can sell all those furniture/tv would be better. Meron rami dito nabibili, 2nd hand and okay lang di presyo. But if you are coming over tapos meron family/friend kayo then okay lang din di masyado hassle for you for then to help you with the move. Kasi yun ang mahirap pag wala kayo kakilala, took me 4 months before nakabili ng cheap transport.

    if di conspicuous ang title di naman bibigayan masyado pansin yan. If you can have ebooks for that much better para di ka masyado mabigat and meron pa space for some other private stuff.

    Yung mga original documents nyo (birth, marriage etc) should be packed in a water proof bag para safe. Yun lang ginawa ko sa amin.

    Good luck and be safe when coming over.

    sino po dito nakapagdala ng mga personal branded bags and jewelries nila to AU? Medyo worried po kasi ako sa limit nila on "General goods" which includes jewelries and leather goods.

    Thanks po!
