Saan mas okay pag magpaparenew ng passport? Sydney or Canberra? I am here in Melbourne and sad kasi bakit walang passport renewal dito sa Victoria. ::)

^Thanks! I haven't decided pa kung sa consulate general sa sydney or sa embassy sa canberra. Pero at least now i know na after 4 weeks pala bago mo makuha yung bago. I didn't call pa for more info din kasi. Thank you again. :)

Hi Vika! Yes. 8-10 weeks kase ang nakalagay talaga na claiming period. But you can check sydney consulate website before yung due date na ibibigay sayo. Nagcheck ako after a month, bigla available na yung sakin. :)
Another advantage kase pag sydney, one train ride lang from airport ang consul. Sa canberra medyo malayo.

^Oh! Sa sydney na lang din kami kung ganun. At least di mahirap puntahan. I don't want to impose sa mga relatives at friends. Thanks ulit for that info at sa mga iba pa.😊

Meron ba kayo alam na GP or pedia na gumagawa ng circumcision dito sa melbourne? Kahit sa bandang zone 2 dadayuin ko not necessarily na malapit sa city. Matatapos na term 2 at balak ko doon pagawa yung circumcision. Matagal din ang term break and winter pa so i think perfect yung timing. Yung ibang friends at kakilala ko sa pinas pinagawa nung umuwi. Di namin ginawa kasi kulang sa time at sinulit namin yung 2 months for pasyal talaga.

Hi, I am 38 years old, married with 2 kids. Registered nurse ako dito sa Pilipinas pero no work experience. My husband works as a flight crew. At my age, ok pa ba mag aral ako sa Australia? Or is it too late already, at masasayang lang. Gusto ko sana eventually maging permanent resident kaming family. Please give me advise. Thanks!

Post by: zee87 on June 22, 2016, 07:26:12 am
Why study kung pwede naman kayo maging pr agad. Yung husband mo na flight crew ang magiging primary applicant. Nasa CSOL (list of jobcode) yung skill niya. Search mo lang job code 451711. Kung ikaw magiging primary, ang option mo nga lang is to get a student visa which is super mahal. See first if you could get your husband as the primary applicant so you can apply for 190 VISA.

Thank you very much sis for replying, i'll check the list 🙂

May mga teachers ba dito sa Australia? What are your experiences?

Gusto ko sana mag apply.. saan ko pwede makita yung list of skills?
Title: Re: Australia Thread 8
Post by: zee87 on June 30, 2016, 07:42:34 am
mag apply ng work or mag apply ng permanent visa as skilled worker?
Checked border.gov.au and search for SOL and CSOL. Those are the lists of jobcodes the country need.

Hi. Madali lang po ba to purchase items from the US and have it shipped to Australia?

Ang hirap kase maghanap ng mickey mouse bag, clothes and toys sa Aus eh.
Or may alam po kayo stores na pwedeng bilhan ng disney merchandise.

Saka saan po makakabili ng thermos na brand ng water container at mga pistachios na malalaki yung lalagyan kase puro maliliit lang yung nakikita e.

Thanks.

^Yes madali lang; register ka sa Hopshopgo as long as you've got a Paypal account. But bear in mind they calculate by dimensions of the box kaya mapapamahal rin. Best siguro Amazon or Ebay.

Disney merchandise, not sure pero check mo sa Toys R Us I've seen a lot of character toys and merchandise or again Amazon, Ebay.

Thermos parang I've seen them in Myer, House, Target. Pistachios na malaki parang meron sa Costco.

hi. ask ko lang po if paano ang visa 190.
Title: Re: Australia Thread 8
Post by: ysa.belle on October 23, 2016, 01:14:53 pm
thanks po.

i noticed that Mickey Mouse is not that big here. Thermos na tumbler dinayo ko pa sa Toys R Us. walang masyadong disney merchandise ako na makita. as for pistachios, tumuloy nako sa costco. kumuha na rin ako ng own costco card ko para anytime makapunta ako doon. hehe

Hinahanap ko yung Australia thread na may pinaka recent replies, at eto yun I think  :o  ;D
Anyway... Hello! I am interested to migrate to Australia. I may have a relative who can back me up financially. I want to know what's the first thing I should do? I emailed a migration consultancy company asking about info but so far, they only give me generic emails. I think I may have to setup an appointment with them to talk to a real person. Anyway, is a migration consultant necessary for me to achieve my dream of working and living in Australia? I am married with 1 kid.

Maybe some of you guys can share your experience on how you achieved your goal of migrating to Australia? Any info is appreciated! TIA :) :D

Hi sizzes, ano maganda balikbayan courier/ padala from Sydney to Manila?

Balak ko sana magpadala hassle free service sana yung pag nareceive ni receiver sa bahay yung balikbayan box, wala na sya babayarang tax or fees. At di na rin sya papupuntahin sa customs or office. Yung tipong kakatok na lang si courier sa bahay tapos pipirma si receiver. Thank you!!
