sis pag dating sa ganyan, the immigration officer plays a big part as to whether you can bring the item in or not. kesa gawa pa yan ng multinational company or hindi (strict global standards), nasa officer na humawak sa iyo.

kung understanding yung officer pwede. kung hindi at stricto or by the book, hindi pwede.

basta food, kailangan i declare. pag nahanapan ka nila na may food at hindi mo na declare, pwede kang ma penalize.

ang alam ko sa mga ganyan pwede. at uulitin ko, basta i declare.

you MAY, as in MAY lang, to reconsider what to bring. dami na kasing dried mango sa aus, hindi lang pinas ang nagdridried mango kundi pati Thailand na. (mas mura pa ata)

bro akthung, ask ko lang kung pwedeng magdala ng dried mango sa oz? ito lang kasi naiisip kong ipasalubong sa mga relatives ni bf pagbalik nya sa oz. TIA :)

In my experience, basta may food kang dala,ide-declare mo lang at pagsama-samahin mo sa isang bag para pag sinabi ng officer na patingin, madali ilabas at isang bag lang bubuksan mo, wala naman naging issue.Napag-pasok ako ng cake (slices),de-lata from pinas,chichirya,pasok naman.Basta processed lang at hindi hilaw (super particular lang sila sa RAW form).Hubby ko napagpasok ng arabic sweets,arabic coffee na vacuum packed,ok din pasok din basta DECLARE mo lang talaga at ipapakita mo ito sa kanila.Tinanong pa ako ng officer na pabiro, "you're from Philippines, right? You have polvoron?" sabi ko lang wala...kilala na nila siguro sa dami ng nagdadala ng food products kung alin ang galing saan :)

sis freeswan, thank u so much for sharing. buti naman at 2nd time around eh na approve na visa mo. first time ko  kase mag apply ng TV.
 4 yrs na kame ng bf ko. ang pinaka worry lang ako eh ma establish na babalik ako dito since unemployed ako.
kinakabahan talaga ako.
makatulong kaya yung strong family ties na part na lang like my anak ako na need ko talaga balikan..God willing makaalis ako ng January need ko rin talaga bumalik kase graduating ang anak ko at bandang march or april yun. makatulong kaya ito?
isa pa wala sa plan namin ang manirahan sa OZ..dito talaga kame sa Pinas mag stay.
sis, pls bigyan mo naman ako ng idea. salamat


sis yung graduation ng anak mo pwedeng mong gamitin. pwede ka magrequest sa adviser or principal ng school ng gumawa sila ng letter sa embassy para sabihin gagaraduate ang anak mo at babalik ka to attend the graduation.
I am happy. I am blessed. I feel loved. I am in love.

in general ganito, pero may nangyayari pa din na stricto yung officer at hindi sila papayag.

sinasabi ko lang ang kabuuhan. para alam din ni Sis, kung mangyari sa kanya, maiintindihan din niya.

na hindi naiiba sa pulis, may subjectivity involved din sa pag suri ng dalahin.

I hope so sis. :( i mean, if they are going to deny it naman, sana wag na patagalin pero im still hoping positive yung outcome.

Perth. My bf already got his TV approved and same day kame nagsubmit. Sa kanya was approved exactly 10 days after the embassy acknowledged that they got his application.

Anong plane mo sis?

sorry for the very late reply sis. I went for PAL kasi walang stopover at gabi yung flight. itinulog ko lang ang travel ko tapos pag gising, nasa Sydney na ako.

it's summer here pero nakakaloka ang weather. minsan lumalamig. when I went to Melbourne, grabe dun. the temperature changes from 24 degrees to 16 degrees in an hour. i like Melbourne better than Sydney. dito sa Sydney, super fast paced.. sa Melbourne ganun din pero hindi stressful.

i ticked off one item in my Bucket List: to see the fireworks of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on NYE. ganda!
I am happy. I am blessed. I feel loved. I am in love.

sa mga nasa aus ngayon, di ba talaga uso ang gumamit ng payong dyan? hindi naman big deal sa akin ang makiuso dahil sa sobrang init dyan eh i'd rather be safe than sorry. pero may mga nagsabi kasing pagtatawanan ka daw ng mga puti pag naka-payong ka?
