    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    @ozshuttler Yes, it said that you may need to wait for 10days after you made the pledge to be able updated in the system. I guess you had face to face ceremony?

    Uk state pension forecast

    However, when you consider you're going to keep receiving it for the rest of your life, and that your income is going to drop as you age, it's a bit of a no-brainer IMO.

    Yes we are getting pension advice that is why I needed the forecast. The advisor is taking all our uk and Aus assets and income into account.

    You should also consider how much tax you will pay on the additional pension income you'll receive, as you may find it takes considerably longer than 3 years to recoup the cost of the 5 years you intend to pay up. Not to mention there'll be no cost-of-living increments, as I'm sure you're aware.

    Only until China can find an alternative source for them.

    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    I have my citizenship certificate but when I enter the certificate number, the system is not able to validate it successfully. My immi account is still approved. Probably will have to wait two weeks as recommended in the citizenship ceremony welcome letter. Was just curious to see if anyone had any success applying soon after ceremony.

    @ozshuttler have you application status changes from Approved to Finalised yet? You need to wait until you have received the citizenship certificate to apply for passport

    I finally got my ceremony on 17th September in SA. I updated my address to my holiday home in SA for a quicker ceremony, otherwise I'd be waiting many more months in Brisbane. Anyone tried applying for passport within 2 weeks of your ceremony?

    Thanks that did the trick! Looks like it might be worth paying to make up my missing 5 years. I will get it back in three.

    Uk state pension forecast

    I did. If I remember right I put in my last UK address for the credit check stage.

    Uk state pension forecast

    Has anyone managed to get this online? I get to the stage where it needs to verify my ID but then gives me three options, I have a uk passport but can’t do the other two as I don’t have a N. Ireland driving licence or a uk address for credit check. It then says I can go back and select different questions but it just gives me the same three options. I will ring them but if anyone has managed a work around it will help. Don’t want to resort to snail mail if. I can help it.

    What TV set do you have?

    I liked the UK version. I tried one of the others and the voice dubbing was distracting so I didn't keep watching.

    What TV set do you have?

    Mine is bigger than yours. I got the 65 inch. I hope 48 inch is big enough. It sounds very small but depends on your room size of course.

    Netflix & Stan

    I’ve just posted a comment on another thread and realised it would have been more appropriate here. I can recommend « Criminal » on Netflix. I watched the two series based in the UK then discovered there are German, French and Spanish versions following the same format but with different stories.

    What TV set do you have?

    Now you have the TV I would recommend « Criminal » on Netflix. I’ve watched the United Kingdom version then discovered there are German French and Spanish editions, all following the same format but completely different stories. The first French episode is based on the terrorist attack on the Bataclan.
  24. Possible?

    Things you miss about Oz?

    Sydney property

    My brother likes Redcliffe though he's since gone back to Surfers again. I've not been there. I did look on the map and wondered how long it weighs take to commute to the CBD? Brisbane may be smaller than Sydney but it's still a big city. Perth had a slower pace but I'm not sure about Brisbane. Nicer climate in winter than Sydney but no city beaches like Sydney. On the other hand you have the Goldie and Sunshine Coasts. I hate commuting. It looks like it has a similar location to the Northern Beaches in Sydney? The one time I went to Brisbane from Surfers and in the middle of the day I hated the drive. 27th June you posted. The 2nd day of lockdown and the last day I had a drink. It's my 84th day without a drink and the 86th day of lockdown I think. Maybe another month before the lockdown is lifted but who knows when border will be open into Qld? After the NRL Grand Final? The Goldie hoteliers would like it open before Xmas. I MIGHT go over Xmas but rates shoot up.

    What TV set do you have?

    I've bitten the bullet and dropped £1100 on a 48 inch LG C1 OLED display...damn I feel guilty for spending that much on a TV. Oh well I guess it's not a bad investment for something that you watch most days for 5-10 years (before the next update)

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    This week Melbourne will gain the title as the longest city in the world for being in lockdown. Their lockdowns are strict too, far more so than ours were. I think many people are getting very fed up with it all.
