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.

BIG MOVE 2019

    @tofurad . Good day. Pwede po paki share some details like ano ang exchange rate, fee for sending and also maximum amount that you can send just to help decide which is the better option. I'm am coming from Saudi hindi maganda rates ng bank so my option is to either send money sa Pinas (BDO) then transfer from there or exchange hard cash and bring it with me kaso I'm planning to go muna sa Pinas before AU so this makes it complicated.

    Hiii.. mag BM na kami this coming August and one thing na need namin ayusin dun is to get a drivers license. Ako and my husband, wala kaming license kahit sa PH. hahaha wala naman kasi kami kotse sa pinas pero I think sa AU eventually need talaga.

    Anyone can recommend us the best way to start getting a license? Kasi lahat mga nabasa ko is may license na galing sa pinas or ibang lugar and just upgrade or what so they can legally drive in AU.

    Thanks in advance :D

    @ktelita each state has different license rules/proceses. In qld, you can get learners via online practice and test. Then you step up from there.

    > Hiii.. mag BM na kami this coming August and one thing na need namin ayusin dun is to get a drivers license. Ako and my husband, wala kaming license kahit sa PH. hahaha wala naman kasi kami kotse sa pinas pero I think sa AU eventually need talaga.

    Saan state kayo mag BM? There are downloadable pdf for driving/road rules per state. Meron din online practise tests in preparation to the learners (L). Search niyo na lang whichever state applies.

    In VIC/QLD, these are the stages. Correct me if I’m wrong pero ganito ata din progression ng ibang state:

    Learner’s (L) -> Probational Licence 1 (P1) ->
    Probational Licence 2 (P2) -> Full driving Licence

    Best is mag practise na po mag drive sa pinas (both manual and automatic) cheaper and “medyo relax” ang laws for student drivers especially kung taga province kayo. (Don’t quote me po. Hahaha).

    In QLD, especially in regional areas, you can go as fast as 100 KM/H especially in Motor ways (Hi-Way in Pinas). In Melb, it’s starting to get congested na even in Motorways.

    Happy Friday sa lahat! :smiley:

  • yosh10yosh10 SydneyPosts: 279Member

    @ktelita almost same ng stages sa sinabi ni mycroft_holmes ang NSW.

    Learner’s (L) : knowledge test (computer-based)
    Probational Licence 1 (P1): requires Hazzard test (computer-based) and Practical Test (actual driving)
    Probational Licence 2 (P2) -> Full driving Licence: Can apply after 1.5yr holding your P1 (i think)

    The cost of driving lesson (1hr/session) will vary around $55-70 (sana ganun pa din). I won't recommend na magpractice sa pinas kung wala ka pang experience kasi baka madala mo un mga bad habits. ;)

    Thank you @yosh10 :smile: yun din advise samin na since wala naman talaga kami experience sa driving, jan nalang para d magulo hehe nagbabasa ako dun sa site nila parang nakakatakot mag drive hahaha sorry wala talaga kasi ako experience and nung bumisita kami sa Sydney nag oobserver ako parang dapat alert ka kasi may cameras daw =))

    Sana may mahanap kami driving lessons na ganun2 rate. Baka asawa ko muna pa unahin ko haha

  • yosh10yosh10 SydneyPosts: 279Member

    @ktelita anung suburb ang target niyo... for sure marami ditong pwedeng magrecommend.
    madaming camera lalo sa speed limit kaya mas OK sumunod na lang kaysa magfine at mademerit.

    Hi Guys! kaka BM ko lang nitong July 7. Hello sa inyo! - Melbourne pala ko Werribee suburb titira. Nakajackpot na approved agad ang bahay.

    Problema ko pambili gamit. :((((

  • zach@052019[email protected] MelbournePosts: 245Member
    @nutribun may malapit ba na recycling centre sa inyo? Kasi kami doon halos galing ang mga gamit or pamingay ng kapwa pinoy. Doon sa recycling centre kasi pinapamigay lang mga furniture, mga kitchen utensils naman mura lang sa kmart, $50 complete na. Also, sa marketplace maraming mga posting na free items. One time nagpost ang isang local lady free furniture daw, ayun deliver pa dito sa bahay. Ang babait nila

    Para san ba talaga ung CFO? Is it really required? Depende ba sa type of visa un? Kasi never ako hinanapan nung first entry ko, pati mga sumunod ko entries.

    I did inquire sa CFO if required ako, they said yes, but i never attended one of their seminars.

    It is, pag permanent , once lang naman kailangan umattend pag permanent visa ka, otherwise pagbalik sa Ph from a visa at nakitang permanent ka at walang CFO EMIGRANT STICKER, denied exit ka kahit nanggaling ka na AU
