09 Nov Scam Alert – Visa Free Travel to Australia for Filipinos?
From: Coconuts Manila
There have been reports of a fake article being spread on social media claiming that starting next year Filipinos will no longer need require a visa to visit Australia for 90 days. All they would need is a return ticket and proof of funds amounting $2,000 AUD ($1,500 US).
“The article being refuted by the Australian Embassy said that the Australian and Philippine Governments entered into a bilateral visa agreement, after a year of deliberation to simplify travel barriers between the two countries.“Coconuts Manila further reports.
The Australian Embassy has posted a notification on their website stating: “HOAX ALERT The Embassy is aware of a hoax/scam suggesting that visa-free options for Filipino nationals will be available from January 2017. This is a scam and potential travelers to Australia must have a valid Australian visa. If you intend to travel to Australia for any length of time”
