    It is interesting that one that lives here apparently has no insight into what is happening around here, okay, lets stick to the paridym then, if it happened months, years ago, it is still happening regardless,new visa restrictions, points for pr up, then we just blame Australians for letting it happen when 95% of the time it all goes pear shaped.

    Once again, Do not take out big loans with big interest with family assets at risk...there now at least one Australian cannot be held responsible.
    Go to a bank, and/or try getting it from family only.
    Everyday I take emails/phone calls from overseas nurses desperate for work because they need to pay loans back. I am over it, just wears you down.along with other things.....thank heavens I have resigned.

    yeps i did it on my own i just send all the requirements today, i have 4 and half years of paid experience as a full time staff nurse. Not sure yet if im going to loan in the bank, but its going to be my option, if ever my Father cannot finance everything. Re: Job opportunities its really case to case basis, maybe my colleagues are just lucky, and im just hoping the same luck too...(=

    I also agree with this. If possible stay away from lending company, much better option is Bank loan like BDO and BPI, RCBC because they have much lower interest rates like 7-8%. But be sure to comply with their requirements. To be able to loan one of their req is for you or your family member to have a monthly salary of 20k up.

    On the other hand, on the contrary to your statement re working opportunities, all of my 5 colleagues from the same hospital who took the bp in oz landed a job in oz, 3 onshore and 2 offshore..
    Indeed, given that all of your 5 colleagues from the same hospital were able to secure post-bp OZ jobs, how long ago was this? Within the last few months or in this past year?

    This is where you really need to be extremely careful. It could very well be your Father that the debt collectors will be contacting daily if you can't repay the loan companies money.

    That's exactly what my batchmates cousins and friends have SORELY regretted in taking out these loans and their's was at the "lower rate" of 35%, which is still excessive!!

    What it is now is that the daily interest amount is added on to the main borrowed amount. As you do the simple math, any payments received is only going to pay down the accrued interest so in essense, they and all other non-payers are paying "interest on top of interest", thus, the main amount borrowed never gets touched until one can make even higher monthly payments.

    So they will not only contact their fathers, mothers, friends, relatives, they call them at home, on their cells, some have even go to their working places. I can tell by their e-mails of how stressful this is and how embarrassing, if tears could come out thru the computer screen, I would have a flood. These debt collectors are very unprofessional after a few months of no promised payments.

    Thats why i posted that its much better to loan in a BANK, so long as you or member of your family can satisfy da requirments. Their interest rate is arnd 7-8 % depending on your terms of payment.
