    Hello!share ko lang yung ibang learnings namin after BM (Melbourne) :)

    1) Learners permit trumps overseas drivers license (ayon kay VicRoads) - meaning kahit valid overseas license mo, kung kumuha ka na ng learners permit considered as "learner" ka, so ideally may kasama kang full license when driving. :| same sa practical exam, dapat may full license na kasama

    2) Try nyo kumuha ng low income health card (concession card) from centrelink - para pwede kayong mag myki concession para half the normal fare. may mga concession rates din sa mga museums, courses, etc - so why not hehe.

    3) If you have kids - try to apply for family tax benefit (FTB) agad para sa allowance :) di naman sya super laki pero it helps

    4) apply for child care subsidy if you plan to put your kids into day care - 1 month kasi usually processing ni centrelink ng mga requests (including FTB)

    Good Day to All.

    Our visa was finally approved the other day (Glory to God!). Hoping for anyone to share some information regarding sa mga queries below, I will be base in Sydney. I know my situation is different since I will be on TSS 482 Visa, but any input will be appreciated.

    1. Ano ano po ba need to prepare/arrange before travelling to Sydney? I in Jeddah now but will fly from Pinas.

    2. Likewise, ano ba mga need agad asikasuhin as soon as I land in Sydney. Do I need to request certain days before start of work to workout some necessities like Bank, License, Medicare, etc. or all these can be done even as I start work already

    3. Recommendations for a good suburb to stay in Sydney. Considerations are safe neighborhood, good primary school, affordable accommodation and hopefully good proximity to work area (Haberfield 2045).

    4. Ano po ba mga essential things to bring for a start considering that I think I can only bring about 40kg max. for items that are hard to find, expensive and essential during the first few days/weeks of stay.

    5. Your two cents because we were planning na mauna muna ako for few months (target by 1st week of October) then sunod nalang ang wife and two kids (10 and 7). What could be the advantage and disadvantage of this lalo sa schooling ng mga bata.

    Thank you po sa mga sasagot. God Bless us all.

    Try to answer your query sir. baka makatulong.

    1. If coming from PH kayo need niyo umattend ng PDOS ata but since mukang nag OFW na kayo sa Jeddah I assume meron na kayo nung sticker? Then mga dadalhin mo lang naman sa flight mo is printout ng visa sa PH lang naman ichecheck yan pero sa pag dating mo Sydney passport nalang.

    2. I'm not sure if sa visa mo is qualified kayo for Medicare and Centrelink pero if yes, yan yung mga una mong asikasuhin at yung TFN mo. Kung may Drivers License ka sa Jeddah I think pde ka mag drive dito pero if not mag DKT ka na aga para magka L license. Kung nde pa kayo qualified for medicare check for private health insurance.

    3. Madami namang suburbs na okay, almost lahat naman ata tahimik and may public school. It will depends nalang siguro sa budget mo. Tingin ko you look for suburbs sa West sydney since banda dun yung work mo para isang train lang. Cost of rent depends sa location mas malayo sa City mas mura na okay.What I meant is yung 400/week na rent mo sa medyo malayo compared sa malapit sa city is mas maganda na makukuha mong bahay compared sa medyo luma or maliit na malapit sa city.

    4. Damit pang lamig, malamig ngayon baka mura mga winter jacket sa pinas bili ka na.

    5. Based on my experience mas okay yung ikaw muna mauna. Question is may work ka na ba pag dating? kasi if wala eh mag hahanap ka pa, then hanap din bahay etc. What I did nauna ako ng 1 month para makahanap ng bahay at work tska ko sila kinuha.

    Hi. Hindi ko alam kung tama ba yun forum na pagtatanungan ko. Pero this is regarding the tax return.

    At the moment, naka Temporary Graduate 485 visa ako. So hindi pa ako eligible sa Medicare benefits. Pero nakita ko na nagbabayad pala ako dun. Sabi ko sa accountant ko, 2 years ago. Pina amend ko yun sa Medicare and nakakuha ng letter. Ngayon daw bawal ko na bawiin yun?
    May private health insurance ako and sabi ng mga friends ko dapat mabawi ko daw po yun binayad ko. Kagabe na receive ko na po tax return ko. May magagawa po ba? Sayang din kasi 1k+ yun. Can someone please enlighten me? Thank you.

  • @goku_son Pwede mo iamend yung tax return mo thru mygov. Do you have the letter of ML exemption? That will be the supporting document.

    Tawag ka sa ATO. Helpful naman (yung iba ) sila and ask them for more info. Saka bago naman ilodge yung tax return, ipapakita muna ng accountant if correct or not. Kasi baka may iba pa palang deductions or disagreement sa calculation nila.

    @Noodles12.

    On the case of PDOS/OEC, need ko pa po kumuha because its a different country. Hindi po kami qualified for Medicare so kukuha talaga ng Private Insurance, still checking kung ano ang suitable and cost effective because there is too many options to choose from.

    Sa suburbs po ba eh meron kayo marecommend? And rental price is a big consideration pero mas ok siguro ung accessible din sa market and groceries para hindi mahirap sila misis. Meron pong car na provided for me and I dont mind driving a bit.

    Salamat po sa suggestion, its good to know that somehow you were able to settle and have them with you in a month. Un kasi worry ko, If I am to go by October target namin makasunod sila by December.

    Thanks again.

    finally po nakapag big move na din kame! andito na kame ngayun sa Sunshine Coast. Una namen ginawa the day after we arrived is nag activate ng NAB bank account, bumili ng SIM and pumunta medicare/centrelink and kinonfirm nila na wala daw kame benefits kasi 489 visa kame -_-

    mahirap pala public transport dito so bibili din kame ng car. focus next week is job application. ok din pala itong airbnb namen na binook namen for 2 months and hopefully before matapos and 2 months eh may work na para maka secure ng permanent rental. good luck po sa lahat ng mag big move, good luck sa atin lahat

    Madami namang okay na suburbs ang ginawa ko noon nung nag hahanap ako ng bahay na irerent namin, is nag hanap ako ng mga available rental na walking distance lang sa school. Mahirap kasi kung papasok sa school araw araw anak mo tapos malayo.

    Kung gusto mo na nde kayo masyado ma homesick at madami filo at mga filo/asian store try mo mag hanap sa Rooty Hill, Doonside or Blacktown. Kami we live in Oxley park near St. Marys dito kasi madami na medyo mura ang rent pero bago yung bahay for a 400-450 per week may 3 bedrooms ka na. 50mins train ride nga lang papuntang city.

  • ktelitaktelita singaporePosts: 58Member

    Hi all! Sharing to you our experience ng husband ko. Nag big move na po kami nung Sunday 04 Aug. Kahit anong medicines ideclare nyo po and prepare the prescription from your doctor, pwede nila hanapin yon but for our case hindi naman hinanap. May mga dineclare din ako, ang ginawa lang is scan lahat ng dala namin from box to luggages, wala naman silang pina open na bag.

    Makakatulong pa rin maghanap ng work online if you're near your BM. You can tell the recruiter when will you be arriving. Sa case ko din, I'm a dependent of my husband. I applied through seek and last Monday may interview ako receptionist/admin job. I got the offer yesterday and they asked me to start Monday kasi immediate hiring sila hehe For this week alone, I got 2 interviews. Tomorrow will be my 2nd interview for the 2nd company I applied for. My husband will have his interview later and on Monday which he applied when he was still in Singapore. Apply ng apply lang po talaga may sasagot din yan.

    It helps to specify in your cover letter what you really want to do and the skills that you have. Tailor your resume if possible max 2 pages. It's not necessary to put in the character reference yet but if you really want to, it's also ok.

    Maaaaalaaaammiigg ang Sydney. Mahangin din. Nakakapanibago..
    Praise the Lord for a smooth transition!
    Thank you!

    sana kami din ay makapag share ng similar stories kapag BM na din kami :) God bless sa inyo dyan. Enjoy Sydney :)

    Hi po, ask ko lang kung meron ba dito na magbibig move or nakapag big move na na kasama agad ang mga kids tapos walang relatives na matutuluyan muna pansamantala sa Au? Paano po ang naging/magiging set up nyo when it comes to accommodation? Kasi medyo tight din daw ang competition pagdating sa rental di ba at need ng mga supporting docs like payslip.. Pati na din yung sa pag aapply ng work, ipapasok ba agad sa daycare kung for example need umalis and pumunta sa interviews? I've read din kasi na pila din daw ang application sa daycare.

    We're still waiting for invite pa naman pero naiisip ko na 'to as early as now kasi mukhang magiging matinding challenge sa amin if ever ni hubby na kami muna ang mauuna then saka bibitbitin ang 2 kids namin. First time kasi namin if ever na mahihiwalay sa kanila ng matagal. Gustuhin man namin na isama sila agad kaso gusto muna sana namin maifamiliarize yung sarili namin sa lugar na lilipatan namin at may stable work na sana bago sila kunin lalo na't wala naman kaming relatives sa Au. Pero may mga nababasa ako na kasama na nila agad kids nila sa pag move kaya interested akong malaman kung paano ang set up nila.

    Meron akong kilala na nag apply sila as family of 3 when they got here sa au..this june lng..took them almost 2 weeks to get approved. meron nmang naaaprove kahit bagong lipat lng..nka student visa pa nga lg sila. im sure ull be fine :) if dnio kasama ang kids, im sure mkakahanap kayo ng ka share sa haus or room ng mga pinoy na andito. mramig nman nagpaparent. u can do that while u transition to look for a place for ur own :) if dala nio nman ang kids , it cud be challenging to get approved agad ..depende kc sa suburb demand, meron dn nman na away from d city like 45mins train ride wherein wla kay masyado competition na applicants. dpende din sa timing tsaka kind of haus of ur choice. pro wla nman limit sa pag apply :) if PR kau im sure ul be fine. jst dont expect it to be smooth :) Goodluck!

    - base dun sa nag IE kami, no need to report, kita na nila status nyo upon arrival - di nga hiningi yun grant letter.
    Derecho na sa medicare/centrelink/TFN.
    Sa medicare/centrelink at bank account opening need ipakita ang passport at grant letter.
