    Maki Join na rin sa BM 2020... sa mga taga SG po jan mag BM sa QLD..kita kits...

    BM end of Jan 2020 or 1st week of Feb 2020..

    Cheers

  • daemon33daemon33 SGPosts: 40Member

    Di ako sure if tamang thread ito.

    We were fortunate enough to have been granted Visa 489 sa SA. Most likely ang BM is mid 2020.

    May tanong lang ako about dun sa grant letter:

    1. Na notice ko lang yung sa polio vaccination, kelangan ba sya especially if yung entry mo is coming from the Philippines? Kelangan din ba authorized clinics lang ng Oz or kahet san naman basta may polio vaccine certificate kang mapapakita?

    2. Yung part ng update us, after visa grant, let's say lipat ka ng bahay (or uwi ka ng Pinas), kelangan din ba sila inform ng address change?

    Salamat and God bless us all!

    Tips in looking for a house? I'm here in Melbourne.

    Next phase ka na bro! mukang masaya ang pasko at magiging bagong taon mo! hehe

    When I was searching for a house ang cinonsider ko is dapat medyo walking distance sa school or at least sa bus stop na papunta sa school. Yun kasi ang mahirap sa mga anak or sa mag hahatid kung araw araw malayo ang lalakarin lalo na pag summer at winter.

    Kapag may nakuha ka na place inspect mo maigi yung mga defects at picturan mo hangat maari at inform sa landlord or agent para incase na lilipat kayo eh hindi sabihing kayo nakasira etc. kasi ibabawas sa bond niyo yun.

    Good luck sa house hunting!

    Hi Noodles12 and Fellow Forum Members,

    Family of 3 BM in mid 2020, how challenging is house/unit hunting po ?
    Looking at SE suburbs kami Narre Warren or Berwick.

    Salamat po sa magbibigay ng info and experiences nila. Regards.

    Not sure po sa lugar niyo pero share ko nalang din po experience ko here in Sydney.

    Dumating ako dito first week of January this year, nakahanap lang po ako ng temporary room na mapag stayan habang nag hahanap ng permanent house to stay. Yung room po is from a Filo family din na nakausap ko

    Sa pag hahanap naman po ng place ang cinonsider ko talaga is yung walking distance sa school. Sa Domain.com.au at realestate.com.au lang ako nga hahanap. Basta submit lang ako ng submit ng inspection, then apply for tenancy. Madaming beses ako na denied, usually mga reason is wala akong credit history at wala pa ako work that time. Ang proof na pinapasa ko lang is bank statement at letter of intent na sinasabi ko na may enough funds ako to sustain the rent for N number of months.

    Luckily na approve naman ako kahit malayo sa work pero at least medyo malapit sa school ng anak ko since sila kasi mahihirapan talaga sa pag lalakad araw araw. Ilang araw ako na natulog sa sahig at kumain sa sahig dahil walang gamit. hahaha then sinundo ko na mag ina ko.

    Suggestion ko lang siguro, if kaya naman na isa muna sa inyo mauna para ma settle muna lahat, like place na mapag stayan, magkaron ng onting gamit, work eh much better. Medyo mahirap po mag hanap ng mapapag stayan kung buong family magkakasama. Medyo magastos ang transpo at medyo pagod pagod kayo kakalakad, plus mahihirapan kayo lalo kung maliit pa ang anak.

    Good luck po sa house hunting.

    Salamat po sa magbibigay ng info and experiences nila. Regards.

    • for house hunting, have the application ready upon inspection para if nagustuhan nyo, ipasa agad s agent
    • offer 2 months advance (not necessarily ggawin tlga to) pero it makes a good impression na capable kayo to pay rents. In our case, at s ibang nabasa kong experience, 1 month pa din ang hiningi sknila kahit they offered more sa application
    • agree na looks close sa shops, child care/school at bus stops/train stations
    • you can also search for stats ng crime per suburb online, personally, kahit saan nmn may crime basta mag ingat ka na lang palagi

    all the best

    Tips in looking for a house? I'm here in Melbourne.

    Next phase ka na bro! mukang masaya ang pasko at magiging bagong taon mo! hehe

    When I was searching for a house ang cinonsider ko is dapat medyo walking distance sa school or at least sa bus stop na papunta sa school. Yun kasi ang mahirap sa mga anak or sa mag hahatid kung araw araw malayo ang lalakarin lalo na pag summer at winter.

    Kapag may nakuha ka na place inspect mo maigi yung mga defects at picturan mo hangat maari at inform sa landlord or agent para incase na lilipat kayo eh hindi sabihing kayo nakasira etc. kasi ibabawas sa bond niyo yun.

    Good luck sa house hunting!

    Hi Noodles12 and Fellow Forum Members,

    Family of 3 BM in mid 2020, how challenging is house/unit hunting po ?
    Looking at SE suburbs kami Narre Warren or Berwick.

    Salamat po sa magbibigay ng info and experiences nila. Regards.

    Not sure po sa lugar niyo pero share ko nalang din po experience ko here in Sydney.

    Dumating ako dito first week of January this year, nakahanap lang po ako ng temporary room na mapag stayan habang nag hahanap ng permanent house to stay. Yung room po is from a Filo family din na nakausap ko from pinoy au syndey group sa FB.

    Sa pag hahanap naman po ng place ang cinonsider ko talaga is yung walking distance sa school. Sa Domain.com.au at realestate.com.au lang ako nga hahanap. Basta submit lang ako ng submit ng inspection, then apply for tenancy. Madaming beses ako na denied, usually mga reason is wala akong credit history at wala pa ako work that time. Ang proof na pinapasa ko lang is bank statement at letter of intent na sinasabi ko na may enough funds ako to sustain the rent for N number of months.

    Luckily na approve naman ako kahit malayo sa work pero at least medyo malapit sa school ng anak ko since sila kasi mahihirapan talaga sa pag lalakad araw araw. Ilang araw ako na natulog sa sahig at kumain sa sahig dahil walang gamit. hahaha then sinundo ko na mag ina ko.

    Suggestion ko lang siguro, if kaya naman na isa muna sa inyo mauna para ma settle muna lahat, like place na mapag stayan, magkaron ng onting gamit, work eh much better. Medyo mahirap po mag hanap ng mapapag stayan kung buong family magkakasama. Medyo magastos ang transpo at medyo pagod pagod kayo kakalakad, plus mahihirapan kayo lalo kung maliit pa ang anak.

    Good luck po sa house hunting.

    Dear Noodles12, thank you so much sa sharing and the suggestions, will keep all these in mind po. Sharing your experience to us is appreciated. Regards po.

    Yes! Hehe. Job hunt kami for now ng wife ko. Mga May or June 2020 kami mag BM.

    Haha. Same! Anyway, na confirm nyo na ba if pwede na tayo kahit saang regional area?

    I emailed the Homeaffairs, but no reply yet. Email add nila: skilled. [email protected]

    Halos lahat yata ng Migration agent are saying na it's true -about 489 Visa granted on or after Nov.16.
    Yung agent ko na Australia-based ay nag-confirm na din. Pati mga agent na nasa Youtube. Pati yung isang lawyer na migration agent din based sa Aus. Medyo kasiraan sa kanila iyon if they are disseminating info. na mali.

    Mas ok pa din sana if manggaling mismo sa officer ng homeaffairs para sa peace of mind.

    Anyway, sobrang laki ng chance I guess na totoo and this favors us a lot. 489 NT ako and very limited or none yung job opp. sa NT now adays, kaya it is really a big help if it's true.

    For now, me and my wife are doing job hunt na din. We're here in Qatar. She's a teacher (accepted nyang hanggang teaching asst. muna makukuha nyang job soon).

    Me, Im trying to submit na din CVs to employers of diff. areas. If my interview na and job offer, it's a must for us to confirm it tlaga sa homeaffairs kung puede sa anumang area na iyon para ndi magkaproblem in the future.

    Let's enjoy lang din muna yung feeling na na-grant. Before, it was a dream lang. Now, it is a reality. =))

    Looking at SE suburbs kami Narre Warren or Berwick.

    Salamat po sa magbibigay ng info and experiences nila. Regards.

    • for house hunting, have the application ready upon inspection para if nagustuhan nyo, ipasa agad s agent
    • offer 2 months advance (not necessarily ggawin tlga to) pero it makes a good impression na capable kayo to pay rents. In our case, at s ibang nabasa kong experience, 1 month pa din ang hiningi sknila kahit they offered more sa application
    • agree na looks close sa shops, child care/school at bus stops/train stations
    • you can also search for stats ng crime per suburb online, personally, kahit saan nmn may crime basta mag ingat ka na lang palagi

    all the best

    Dear Captain A,

    Thank you for the advise and suggestions on how to go about sa house hunting, challenging talaga pag bago we can see. Regards po.
