Look, guys, I understand that you feel your complaints about the Philippines are valid (I can't say either way - I've no knowledge about it). But as you know, dunan, other users have commented on posts like this recently expressing that they feel made uncomfortable by them. We're pretty free-wheeling on this board and I don't do a lot of moderation because, frankly, we're all adults, and we generally do a great job of being considerate of one another. Generally when someone is told something is offensive they do a great job of apologizing, moving on, and not repeating it. It's been like that for months here.

Your right to say what you think, though, extends only insofar as you're not offending multiple other users here and making them feel insulted. This is supposed to be a board about immigration to Australia, and we've cultivated it to be a safe space for our members, and some of them feel that their nationality is being attacked. There are many other places on the vast internet that you can vent that kind of frustration - and you can even PM each other in private about it if you like. But seriously - enough with it out here.

I hate having to step in like this when users aren't getting along (that's one of the reasons I love this board - it's so rarely necessary because people are here to help each other). I'd appreciate it if we could just move on here and respect other people's feelings enough to drop the topic.

Please stay on track with the original topic of this thread or the thread will be closed, and if you'd like to talk with me about what I just said, please do so via PM.

Thanks.

careful what you say woody lol, its very interesting that you don't tell them of your departure and returns, how long do you go for,and when was the last time,because c/l and immi are in contact every day ,and now its just 6 weeks out and they will cut you off dsp, my last trip was 4 weeks ago,and i was gone 6 weeks and 2 days, they cut me off and deducted me 2 days pension, i had to call them when i got back and get reinstated the dsp, no problems they just put you back on ,no assessment ,but they dock you any days over 6 weeks ,trust me.

Correct! DIAC have a system that is available to other government organisations like Centrelink and ATO where they can see where you are via your passport number or a simple name and DOB search. Also DIAC sends files of people that have gone offshore regularly (I am pretty sure it is daily now) to Centrelink and ATO. All government organisations have MOU's in place which means that they share information between government departments.

Woody, when you fly to the Philippines, you show the airline your passport, yes? That's how they know. They either scan your passport or manually enter the information into their system, and that automatically goes to DIAC and other government groups. Even if for some reason things work differently down there and you don't show your passport (I can't imagine that's true, but...) you must show some other form of ID... or give them a name or a credit card. All they need is basic information to be able to record that you're leaving the country.

I just unexpectedly came across this document in my reading and thought it was directly relevant to this thread. It's the Memorandum of Understanding between the DIAC and the Child Support Agency (CSA). Although that's not the entire Department of Human Services to which Centrelink belongs, it outlines the means by which information is shared between the Department of Immigration and one agency of the Department of Human Services, so this may be extrapolated to Centrelink, etc. as we know that they also do the same sort of thing. This was signed in 2008.

MOU Between DIAC and CSA on MR [Movement Records] database access and disclosure (PDF, 3.2mb)
