    @aolee, oo nga yan maganda dito ang liit ng tax. May idea ka kung ung 4.000 SGD na sweldo dito ano katumbas sa AU? Para malaman natin kung gano kalaki..hehehe
  • aoleeaolee SingaporePosts: 571Member, De-activated
    nakita ko katumbas na salary range ng position na 4k SGD/month == 80k AUD above (annually) . so sabihin nalang natin na 80k annual... as per AU Tax bracket ng non-resident nasa

    A$37,001 – A$80,000 = A$10,730 plus 30c for each $1 over $37,000

    A$43000 x 0.30 = A$12,900 [30c for each $1 over $37,000]

    total tax is A$23,690

    A$80,000
    -A$23,690
    ========
    A$56,370

    I'm not 100% about the computation above kung may na miss ako or mali computation. kung may taga AU dyan na nakakabasa, maybe you can help us a bit here.

    hmmm mukhang malaki parin pala take home mo kesa d2. but still you have to consider other things kung worth ba ung sweldo against perks ehre in SG like convenience ng transpo, rent ng bahay, food, malapit sa pinas, weather, lalo na ung mga calamity na ngyayari ngayon dun.

    @aolee thanks sa information na toh. Malaki ang maitutulong nito para magdecide kung mas okay nga ba na lumipat dun. Balitaan mo kami pag nakamove na kayo ng Au. Thanks!

    aolee ,medyo close yung computation mo pero keep in mind na meron tinatawag na super annuation dito sa australia na para sa retirement minsan shoulder ng employee yun 9% of your monthly salary ang deduction and then ang house rent dito medyo mahal din pero kung makahanap ka ng medyo malayong suburb from the city medyo mura na kaso malayo naman sa city which is dun lahat karamihan ng mga companies pero mode of transportation is train kaya medyo mabilis lang.Maganda talaga dito sa oz pero manibago ka pag bago kalang dito kasi lahat mahal talaga pero later on makakasanayan mo narin.Goodluck sa mga balak na magpunta dito sa oz, this is such a nice place to live...
  • aoleeaolee SingaporePosts: 571Member, De-activated
    @tony thanks tony for the info. sana magkaraon ng chance this year na maka-visit muna kame dyan para mafeel ung environment :-) medyo nanghihinayang lang ako dito sa SG kung iiwan namin, kasi nakaestablished na rin kasi kame dito and ung comfort-zone ba. pay wise, ok naman sweldo compared to other people here. but most people say... kung long term ang paguusapan mas maganda talaga dyan sa OZ. how's work pala dyan. marami bang opening?

  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    aolee. Try to visit oz first para magka idea ka kung ok talaga para sa inyo. The best thing for me para makapunta dito is try to look for an employeer na mag sponsore sayo kasi yun ang pinaka mabilis gaya ko under 457 ako nung pumasok dito at ngayon PR nako after 2 yrs lang. Kasi ang nagiging poblema ng mga nagma migrate dito is pagdating nila di sila ma hire ng mga employeer because they don't have an experience here in oz kumbaga swertihan lang na may magtiwala talaga kagad or mag train sayo.
  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    Cheflyra.... Ang pagkakaalam ko sa Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme hindi ka pa PR kumbaga temp residence kalang at limited kalang sa area or region na na approved ka kumbaga di ka pwede lumipat ng ibang region at magwork duon hanggat di ka pa PR, kasi may mga kakilala ako na ganyan ang case nila ng pumunta sila dito pero mas mabilis sila nakapag apply ng PR. Hope it help.
  • cheflyracheflyra MelbournePosts: 12Member
    Hi tony. My visa is PR already. Nkastate sha sa visa label ko. 5 yrs multiple entry and after 4 yrs pwede na apply citizen. Ung $10k na bnbyrn ko $100/week pra un pmbyd sa visa ko gumamit kse ng migration agent ung employer ko.
  • cheflyracheflyra MelbournePosts: 12Member
    I asked my migration agent and she confirmed pr na nga to. Its 119 and not 457 working visa.:-)
  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    cheflyra... Yah sorry na miss understood ko lang yung sayo akala ko kasi state sponsor ka yun pala regional, marami kasing type of visa dito eh the time na narealized ko na post ko na at di ko na ma delete, sana sinagot ng employer mo yung visa kasi sobra ang mahalor 50/50 manlang kayo pero ok narin at least mababawi mo rin naman yan pag andito kana. Sa ballarat ka pala medyo malayo sa city yan pero madali lang ang mode of transportation kasi may train naman from there to city. Sige bro goodluck and keep in touch dito sa forum.
  • jayjee09jayjee09 SingaporePosts: 62Member
    hi guys, pacencya na po, ask ko lang po kung anu po ba ang kaibahan ng visa 457 vs 119? parang pareho lang siya in terms of sponsorship, parehong employer sponsored right?
  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    Jayjee..ang kaibahan ng 457 sa 119 temporary long stay for 4 yrs at pwede magapply ng PR after 1 or 2yrs.Ang 119 naman is PR na kagad kasi regional sponsore sya ng company.
  • jayjee09jayjee09 SingaporePosts: 62Member
    @tony ah i see. Pag 119 ba, ikaw ang magbabayad ng FEE or company? in the case of Cheflyra siya ata nag pay right? deducted sa salary niya? still not bad kasi PR agad ang nakuha nya.

    May chance rin ba na mareject ang mga company sponsored visa application like 119?

    thanks in advance.
  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    it depends on the employer kais may mga employer na sila lahat ang sumasagot pati temp. accomodation pagdating mo ng oz, meron naman na sayo pa shoulder ang gastos kapalit ng pagkuha nila sayo.Well yung chances na ma deny ang application mo pag company or employer sponsor ka napakaliit or halos walang nade deny kasi ang backer mo is company or employer at talagang kailangan ka nila sa business.
  • yheon_17yheon_17 Los AngelesPosts: 19Member
    @tony tanong ko lang po mahirap po ba maghanap ng mga company dyan sa Au na handang magsponsor?
  • tonytony SydneyPosts: 11Member
    @yheon_17... Depende sa field mo kung indemand ang field mo madali makahanap ng trabaho pero andyan parin ang tinatawag na swerte kasi sa dami ng naga apply dito. Madali maghanap ng employer dito kung engr or nurse ka kasi yun ang mga kulang nila dito at mag fit ka sa hinahanap nila. Ako kasi before natatandaan ko ang dami kong inaplayan sa seek pero yung company ko lang talaga ngayon yung fit talaga sa work ko at sinuwerte na nagustuhan nila ang experience ko, kasi that time i was in dubai at yung work ko dun is like ng work ko dito ngayon.The time na maka 2 yrs nako dito sa company nag apply na kami for PR ng family ko pero company sponsore kaya mabilis na approve within one week approved kagad ang PR application namin, yun kasi ang pinakamadali na way sa pagpunta dito as much as possible dapat may work kana kasi minsan ang mga company nagre require ng local experience dito may mga immigrant kasi ako na nababalitaan na pagdating dito hirap talaga sila makahanap yung iba umuuwi muna kasi naubos na yung money nila yung iba naman ibang field ang pinasok na work just to survive kaya yun ang mga cons sa pagpunta dito pero once na may work kana everthings will be different.
  • itekitek Posts: 1Member
    @tony:sir ask ko lang po abt yung salary differences ng 457 vs 157 pr visa.Once nagka PR visa ka ba obliged yung employer mo na taasan ka ng sahod?if you are working under a 457 visa?

    Ganito po situation ko kasi: just got a job in perth,i'm waiting for my 457 visa company sponsored and my agency called me sooner or later 1st week of may labas na yung visa,my wife(primary applicant) just lodged 175 PR appl last jan2011 and we will be getting our CO this june accdg to DIAC.

    As a 457 worker,do i have the right na magdemand ng sahod once maka PR na po ako?

    @cheflyra ..........Hi Cheflyra.ngayon lang ako nakapasok sa site na ito and I can say na sobra lucky ka at PR agad ang pasok mo sa AU.Currently, Im on a 176 visa, pero sobrang pinaghirapan ko talaga ito bago ko natamo. Nag start ako as 457 Visa , but our employer doesnt want to sponsor us for a PR status because natatakot sya na if PR na lahat kami na pinoy workers nya ay aalis na kami sa kanya.masakit ay pinoy pa mandin ang sponsor namin that time. kaya nga while Im reading your story ay na-amazed talaga ako ,sobra swerte mo.So now nasaan na kayo?

    hello sa lahat.. ito n yata ang pinakamahabang forum ngaun d2 at sobrang helpful.. thanks for a lot of info.. Anyway, tulong naman din po for additional info.. anu anu mga benefits n binibigay ng company dyan sa AU (bonus, annual leave, ticket by whom, etc) as I worked before at UAE, meron 1month (paid!) annual leave including the plane ticket. un nga lang ung mga kamoteng arabo na un, di kame nabigyan ng bonus kaya aun! d2 aq ngaun sa SG n ang tanging benefit mu lang ay ung malapit ka sa Pinas.

    Greetings mga kabayan! just to ask and seek for advise....
    i am not a college graduate , i only went to a technical school which is TESDA due to the usual financial needs of course...hindi namin kakayanin kaya short courses lang...i took up HRM in the field of Food and Beverage Services and after that, i got lucky to land a job as a Waitress at a 5star and as a Captain waitress sa 3 star hotel dito sa PHIL and did strive harder that got me a job on a Luxury Cruise line for more than 6 years....i supposed to go back onboard last dec pero i decided not to and quite not sure if i wanna go back to the life onboard...medyo frustrating na rin kasi ang work situation so i am planning and trying to get my chances to land a job somewhere NORTH America, Canada and or Australia as a Waitress
    .......i wanna know how big is my chances to land a job in Australia despite of my educational status? how 'bout my several years of experience internationally? wouldn't that be a plus? and am not nagyayabang but i speak english very well!

    ..actually i get so many calls from my post at workabroad.ph but its in the mid east and i am not interested and mostly rejected the offer kasi nga po ang gusto ko sa US, Canada or Australia....and comparing the salary that i am earning sa barko, malayo talaga...and knowing na medyo mababa rin sa Canada or US compared sa kinikita ko sa barko at least i know that in land i can have a life...sa barko kasi masaya din pero it is like an open prison to me...
    ...any advise from anyone? anyone knows any job openings?
  • riggsriggs Posts: 1Member
    Tanong ko lang po, gaano kahirap or kadali maghanap ng IT work sa AU kung NZ Citizen? Kailangan po ba ng ACS accreditation, or pwede na wala at possible na mai sponsor ng employer?

    Salamat po.

    Hi, Ask ko lang if posible ba ako makakuha ng good job sa australia.
    I graduated BSBA Business Management sa Univeristy of the East
    Single, I already have PR Visa.
    Thanks po sa reply..
  • bonzibonzi MelbournePosts: 67Member
    @godder2011 , swertehan lng din. i think di naman nila tinitingnan kung san uni ka naggraduate. when ka pupunta ng OZ?
  • TotoyOZresidentTotoyOZresident Posts: 1,335Member, Moderator
    usually yan una experience at details, duties and responsibility ng currrent or previous work ang tatanungin sa iyo ng employment agency dito for initial interview. then anu equivalent ng natapos mo sa college dito. Swertehan lang talaga na makuha mo na work related sa natapos mo. Magtyaga ka muna sa una kung anung work makuha mo. Kung makakuha ka ng work related sa natapos mo mas maganda pero kailangan mo ulit mag aral dito para ma qualified ka sa work na gusto mo related sa natapos mo at para makakuha ka ng malaking sahod. tutal single ka pa mag ipon ka muna or i settle mo muna sarili mo sa OZ importante may sasakyan ka kung magaaral ka sa gabi dipende sa state na pupuntahan mo. Pag okay kana tyaka ka mag aral ulit kahit after office hour. Tyaga ka muna sa umpisa.
