    Hi,
    Pag mag initial entry lang ba, meaning babalik pa sa pinas, kelangan pa nung CFO sticker?
  • cuccicucci NSWPosts: 882Member

    @gdcan I don't think CFO distinguishes between initial entry and actual move when it comes to persons holding PR visa so registration and seminar/pdos is required.

    @fioning1120 meron yun sa dinayo pa namin sa may yarra na ni recommend ni sis @jijolly e 2 in 1 na. Sobrang agahan nyo lang dating para ma accomplish nyo both. Kailangan may tig isa na kayong AU mobile number kasi need iyon.

    Diko na maalala kapatid if sa Melbourne ka din ba? kasi sa Melbourne CBD to malapit.
    If di mo pa na accomplish yung medicare form - may computers doon at printer pero syempre it will eat up like 20 mins of your time answering the form.

    Hello @ms_ane yes sa melbourne po kami. Natapos na namin medicare at NAB kanina. Yung medicare may centerlink din sa may Preston suburb kung saan kami malapit. Kaso nung tinanong ko paano yung application for centerlink ang sabi sa amin ay di need magapply kung walang iclaclaim at bago palang. Nagtaka lang ako bakit ganun pero yun ang sabi. Para saan ba ang centerlink?
  • mycroft_holmesmycroft_holmes SingaporePosts: 273Member
    @carlosau if you need ID’s get driver’s/learners, Keypass, proof of age card (depends on the state).

    I-keep niyo din yung boarding pass since need ito sa Bank activation/banker appointment. Di na sila nagtatak sa passport so your bank need this to verify your entry to AU. Hope this helps. :)

    @fioning1120 ganun din ang nabanggit samin pero nagproceed pa din sila to create an account for us and then gave us our CRN number. Tapos if mag cclaim e derecho na sa mygov.com to process then saka lang maipapasok naman yung name ng anak ko. bale sa centrelink na apply namin kaming mag asawa lang muna. Baka iba ibang branch iba iba sagot hehe. Pero since nag bm na kayo baka may maari na kayo ma claim? ( di pa ako gaano sure) or kapag nakakuha na kayo ng house then pede nyo na pakita ang lease agreement para sa rent assistance? di pa ako gamay dito sana mag sumagot na expert na hehe!

    Hi @ms_ane Parang may sinasabi pa silang maeexpire yung centerlink na number in 2 or 3 months daw pag di nagamit. Medyo nasungitan pa kami dun nung tinanong anong gagawin namin sa centerlink. haha! Di ko naman maexplain kasi sila dapat mas nakakaalam nun.

  • ms_anems_ane Victoria, AustraliaPosts: 1,133Member
    @fioning1120 oo nga e parang ganun nga din ang dating sakin in terms of hoping sana na they can explain further kasi bilang bagong migrante, we may have a few knowledge about centrelink and mga benefits pero we are hoping na sila ang proactively na mag explain further. Parang ang nangyari e recitation na dika makasagot tapos feeling mo, ikaw teacher e dapat alam mo din hahaha!
    yaan mo na. aralin nalang natin at magbasa basa sa net ang tungkol dyan sa centrelink na yan :)

    Hi all! I just have a few questions, maraming salamat sa mga sasagot. Made our BM this weekend and nagparegister kami maganak ng medicare (me, pregnant wife and 1yr old son). Upon registration sa medicare nagask na din ako about centrelink, if we need a seperate registration. Tinanong ako ng nagassist sa medicare registration kung me ikkclaim daw kami. So far sa nabasa ko dito sa ibang forum threads na they will actually advise what to claim since bagong migrant ka lang. Didnt experience the same, at sabi kung wala ka nmn icclaim no need na centrelink. Can anyone help to enlighten on this?
    -also gano katagal ngayong year and medicare card? 2 weeks? need lng malaman dating ng card for TFN application din since wala pa valid ID to present.
    -for toddler vaccination and pregnant wife checkup tayo ba ang mamimili ng GP, just call the clinic for schedule?
    TIA!

    @swish19 naku ganyan talaga sila. May claims kayo FTB B walang waiting time yan. Insist niyo na pa register kayo sa centrelink, kahit ano pang sasabihin nila.

    Yes separate registration yan at sila ang gagawa.

    Medicare card will be mailed within 2 weeks, pero pwede na magamit lalo na ng pregnant wife mo para sa prenatal check up. Nung March lang kami nag BM at April ako nanganak.

    Si GP mag rerecommend ng public hospital, and may forms siya na ibibigay sayo, tatawag ang hospital to inform you kailan ang scheduled prenatal check up. Prior to that si GP muna mag check up sa misis mo and check if she has the necessary lab tests na hahanapin ng OB niya dito.

    Code

  • zach@052019[email protected] MelbournePosts: 247Member
    @swish19 For valid ID pwede passport lang

    Si GP din magcheck ng baby book ng mga bata and siya mag uupload sa au vax registry, check niyo online kung anong necessary vax na kulang, otherwise pwede na ipasok sa childcare or school.

    Lahat kay GP muna dadaan, prior sa hospitals or lab tests. Look for clinic na "bulk billing" sila lang tumatanggap ng medicare, para free check up niyo

    Code

  • zach@052019[email protected] MelbournePosts: 247Member
    @swish19 Lahat ng check up for appointment, itatawag sa clinic muna. Kahit yung medicare number muna pwede na gamitin kahit wala pang medicare card. Show lang passport. Then i suggest kung saang clinic kayo nagpa check up, doon na kayo always kasi nandun na records niyo. If lilipat ng clinic, need i pull out ang records from your previous clinic, matatagalan and hassle. Minsan may $5 fee pa

    Ang sipag ko mag reply haha

    @swish19 Hello, nkaka BM lang din namin last 19th June.
    -for toddler vaccination and pregnant wife checkup tayo ba ang mamimili ng GP, just call the clinic for schedule?

    I just called up nearest clinic to set an appointment para sa kids namin for vaccination records update then the nurse will inform/contact you after that kasi iche check pa nila ung vacc records ng kid nyo to check if complete base on au standard, if may kulang they will set an appt with you when nila i-administer ung kulang na vaccine/s. - ung nurse na ng assist samen pinay at kapitbahay pa namin - ngkataon dun din sa sa clinic sa malapit ngwowork kaya doon na kmi ngpa appt. For preggy wife nmn, ganun din tawag lng to make an appt, just make sure na bulk billing ung doctor at dala nyo ung medicare letter if wala pa kayo card. Ng apply kami sa medicare last 20th June, until now wala pa ung cards namin.

    Based on our experience, as long as may acct ka sa mygov and may CRN at TFN na kayo mag-asawa you can make claims online na if may ike claim na kayo (rental assistance, FTB, CCS, etc). Need nyo din at least isa sa inyo may bank acct na kasi dun papasok ung payments na make-claim sa centrelink. Nung ngparegister kasi kami akala ata mgke claim na kami eh nakaka 1 day pa lng kami that time, sabi ko lng nmn eh mgreregister lang kasi need ko ng CRN. Pero they were very helpful, accommodating and informative naman..Ini-aasist na din nila kami how to do online claims, di pa lng natapos that time kasi wala pa nmn ako TFN. Sinabi din nila samen anu pwede namin claim (FTB at CCS).

    For TFN application, passport # at CRN lang nmn ung natatandaan ko na ni-fill in ko aside from other personal details when I applied on line - based sa experience ko. Wait naten ung insights ng iba.

    Hiiii, pwede ba na ako muna mag IE tapos sunod nalang after ilang weeks yung husband and baby ko?
  • swish19swish19 SingaporePosts: 43Member

    Maraming salamat @kaye28 @[email protected] !
    Nauna nako dito ng isang buwan before at binalkan ko family ko,nagjob hunt muna.

    TFN:
    My experience nung nagschedule ako sa AU post, hinanapan ako ng additional ID aside from passport. Knowing na bagong dating lang sabi ko wala pa ko medicare na available (since yun ang isa sa valid ID #2), binigyan ko ng letter from bank since me option na pwede yun at basta me letter head, address,etc. Di daw pwede. Kaya up to now wala pa ko TFN. Ttry ko bukas sa ibang AU post branch using passport only.

    Medicare:
    Nagregister ako second week ng May, sabi ng nagassist sakin naghhang daw yung system kaya iregister nlng daw nya ko at wait sa card in 3-4 weeks. Walang dumating na card. Since paalis na din ako dko na fnollowup since magrregister uli ako pagdating ng anak at wife ko.
    Ngregister kami yesterday with my family, wala binigay na number. Tawag na lang daw kami sa hotline ng medicare. Sure naman daw mabbigay ang number.

    So far, parang nappansin ko mejo tamad sila magassist, at worst nalimutan pa iregister (medicare), di naman general pero so far mejo sablay mga nppuntahan ko.

    @swish19 kapatid I see na SG based ka din, so naintindihan ko yun expectations mo in terms of efficiency sa mga services (nasanay tayo dito hehe) - pero ayun nga napansin ko din yan na medyo kalma mode lang sila, ganun talaga ang work culture diyan e. ang mainam na lang na gawin e i take note natin na ganun sila and take extra checking nalang or validation kung nagawa ba o hindi.. alam mo na we can’t have it all ika nga (when comparing 2 countries na tinirhan naten)

    ang importante e nandyan ka na at inggit kami hahaha! :)

    anyway, I hope na you get to experience better services sa sunod. kami yun napuntahan namin e efficient at mababait naman at welcoming - depende lang nga talaga sa branch hehe.

    @swish19 i'm not sure kung san state ka... you can apply PHOTO CARD sa RMS (with fee $55/5years i think). you can use this as additional ID.

    @carlosau if you need ID’s get driver’s/learners, Keypass, proof of age card (depends on the state).

    I-keep niyo din yung boarding pass since need ito sa Bank activation/banker appointment. Di na sila nagtatak sa passport so your bank need this to verify your entry to AU. Hope this helps. :)

    Thank you very much!
