    Could be. You probably need to be alert for symptoms for up to 4 weeks. Even if you feel fine next day clots may develop over time so after a month i think you can relax.

    As we had the first AZ dose in Oz and the second in England I could probably make a case for the English version being superior, given we had no reaction to that one What do you think? Sound feasible?

    FOXTEL vs Others

    Yes we got rid of fox about 6 years ago, just increased cost all the time for less. can’t say there is anything I miss

    I think it’s important to get to the bottom of its origin as it might give us insight to fighting future virus.

    Flights to Australia - reliability?

    Were in the same position. Although admittedly not as organised as you!! Our flights are pinned on our house sale going through in the coming months. Which I'm increasingly anxious about. Still need to book pcr tests. Which airport are you flying from and which company did you use to book the pcr? Do they offer any flex to change dates? We've only booked Airbnbs in Australia with a cancellation policy that enables us to cancel last minute with no financial repercussions. It limited our search but has given us peace of mind in case our schedule changes! We're going to use the Move Cubes to pack and send everything. It's a little cheaper and can be staggered so a bit less last minute, and they'll store it at either end if needed. Which removals are you planning to use? I've had my first jab and eager to get my second before we travel. Should be on course for that which is a relief. Just had our baby last week so now we need to get her passport etc sorted. Still heaps to do!!

    Well my circle is equally not typical then. Where as my UK friends hardly ever venture past Europe, pre covid, friends from here plus us were visiting all sorts of countries, from China to Norway, painting holidays in Italy and France to name a few. Cambodia, Vietnam Africa to mention a few more. No one has gone to Bali although we went there plenty of times from Brunei when we lived there. My son and daughter who live here have visited Africa, Italy, America, Cuba and Thailand and Bali. My UK son has only been on holiday to Spain and Lanzarote, and that’s because we have shouted the trip for us all to have a holiday together when we were back, they only go camping or rent a cottage, or stay for free in a family flat by the sea in Wales. They can afford holidays, just not interested in widening their children’s horizons. They have visited us here twice with plenty of help from us to encourage them, and the boys have loved it. All pre covid of course, so it’s all holidaying at home now for us all

    Ah yes the judging British people on escape to the county, a show for people so incapable of buying a house they need professional advice, who then point out they are looking for literally something which doesn't exist in their budget.
  13. Well I kept the freezer full of Flake for months but the trouble that my arm is giving me now, I would say the shark.

    You are probably right in that most poms i think don;t move to Australia to sign up for a longer commute than they had in the UK. On the other point, only about half of Australians have a passport, so its possible your circle is not typical.

    Nice to see an Australian manager appointed to one of the biggest clubs in the UK. Ang Postecogleou is the new manager of Celtic FC.

    Next steps after 491 EOI

    Then you need to start pulling together things like 1) employment history - including payslip proof 2) education history including degree transcript if available Probably best place to start is google form 80 and start looking at what it requires, whilst it isn't always a necessity most are asked to fill it in and the documents it asks for will be required in some way even if the form isn't It's too early for police and health checks though, you only need these once you've been offered sponsorship and have been given a link to apply for the visa

    I think the dropping of Oxford from Oxford AstraZeneca is simply because it’s too unwieldy. It’s mostly referred to as AZ. The top scientists from Oxford University who were involved in the research were honoured in the Queen’s birthday honours so it doesn’t sound as though the government wants to disown the connection. Feeling good after second dose of AZ. Both OH and I had reaction after first jab but absolutely fine after the second.

    What’s so funny FWP ? Don't you want to know the origin of the virus Australia were the first to ask for a enquire into the origin and just look how the Chinese reacted slapping tariffs on everything they could to try and hurt us economically. So yes imho let’s get the truth as to its origin and we might be able to learn more about it.

    Citizenship documents - please help

    It's "collectively show", passports don't normally show the address. The drivers license would have the photo, signature, address and date of birth (but not birth name or possible gender), the passport would have your photo, signature, date of birth, birth name and gender. So you only need one other document that has any or some of the above. Medicare/ATO letter to your address?
  20. I didn't use an agent I just made sure u gave then exactly what they asked for ...mine came through in sixteen months and u applied at the worst time Feb 2020....then covid hit .....my hubby been out if Oz for more than 365 days in ten years so that put two months in it as he needed a UK police check.....but otherwise it's quite straightforward just be honest .....save your money and do it yourself I'm no technical whizz far from it and I managed
  21. Just had a word with the Dr who gave me the injection, apparently the red rash, looks like sunburn On my face is a rare reaction to the steroid, should be gone in a day or two. Not sure about feeling cold and headache but check with the GP if it continues.

    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    Just an update on my timeline as I received my citizenship ceremony today much earlier than I anticipated. Applied April 2020 Test March 2021 Ceremony Invitation received June 2021 Ceremony July 2021 I'm in Melbourne, Victoria - Bayside City Council. My husband has the same timeline as me but his test was 2 days after mine and he doesn't have his ceremony invitation yet as we unlinked our applications. I'm amazed to get the invitation to the ceremony so soon as it's only 3 months since my test and I'm in Victoria which must have a huge backlog. I just got out of hotel quarantine today so it's a good day!

    Not everyone obviously but enough people for it to be a problem for the rollout. It is only natural that if there is one vaccine that is seen as slightly better and slightly safer many people will insist on that one. No matter how much the government tries to convince them they will be stubborn until they get their way. I make another prediction. AZ will not be used at all next year. When it comes time for everyone to get their next year 2 shot like the annual flu shot everyone will be on Pfizer or Moderna.
  24. Good afternoon everyone, We are applying for the TRT in 2 weeks and are thinking about building our family. We don’t want to wait the possible 18 months wait (actual timeframe) so we are wondering what would be the main difference between the bridging and the PR for my pregnancy. I m working in the tourism industry and am actually without work so I can’t count on the maternity leave anyway. Thanks everyone
  25. Good afternoon everyone ! My partner and I are applying for the 186 TRT (thanks to his 457) in 2 weeks time. He is electrician and we are wondering if any trades can share their timeframe. The TRT timeframe is extra long now and we would like to try to have a child next year. Anyone with a bridging visa able to share their experience ? Is it any big difference to have a child before or after PR knowing that now the waiting period for maternity leave and stuff will be 4 years so no point to count on it ! Many thanks and good luck to you all

    Incorrect parley. You are scared of it, fair enough. That doesn't mean the "public" feel the same way. In fact, I'm part of the "public" and happily got jabbed with AZ.
