Remit from Oz to Pinas

Back in Sydney, me and my friends send money to the Philippines through Pag-asa Express. Sorry, but I no longer have their contact details but you can always go to Chowking Filipino store in Westfield Shopping Centre in Parramatta to get the info from them.

When I moved to Canberra, I started remitting money to Las Pinas through Maynila Holdings but we generally refer to the company by the name of it’s owner/operator, Mang Cesar. If you’re in Canberra and you want to send a package or cash to the Philippines, you may want to ask him for more details by calling (02) 6290 1090 or 0408487379. You can tell him I directed you to him. From my experience, he’s pretty reliable. Even after moving to Melbourne, we kept sending remittance to Manila via Mang Cesar.

However, we’re thinking that it may be easier in the long run if we use a local remitting service but finding one was a bit difficult. That was, until we found Filipino shops in Footscray. Like Chowking in Sydney, they send remittance to Manila and they do it through a third party. In their case, they used Ordex.

They had a pamphlet for Ordex in the store and here is the info on the first page:

I have listed the above services for purely informational purposes to help give those Pinoys here in Melbourne or Canberra a lead on how to send money to the Philippines.
