    Keep hearing a lot about 'riots' if Brexit doesn't happen. But what if it does happen and the cost of living goes up 10%, tens of thousands are made redundant, the economy crashes, everyone’s house value is wiped…. etc. Are people likely to be happy with all that? The sovereignty of our mushy peas with their guaranteed long-term green-ness might be some comfort but will that stop the baying lynch mob?

    No, because of transitional arrangements for 457 visa holders. Basically, if you had a 457 with pretty much any occupation (originally the CSOL), then you can could be nominated for 186 visa. The March 18 deadline, if I remember correctly, would only apply to 186 DE nominations, not TRT, so you should be alright. Additionally, I don't think your MA would have filed for a visa you are not eligible for!

    I think we can have ideas of what it'll be like before we arrive, when we are dreaming, and then the reality is very different! Like you say you are different people to back then, I think kids change everything too. I'd go home. Esp if you are both feeling the same way about it. I stuck it out for 8-9 years trying to make it work and now I'm moving back alone with two kids. I agree with you, we too came for opportunity and a 'better' life but that didn't happen, what is 'better' anyway? The kids have no family here, I have no support and the reality is it was better, in my case, for one person only. There are heaps of problems in Australia and we have no reason to be here. Even if UK's not great at least its ours! Good luck with your decision. Go with your gut, the head gets in the way. Don't worry about what other people think either, time is relative and when you are unhappy 9months can feel like 9years!

    It won't be interesting. All we’ll get is a debate about a version of Brexit no-one wants vs a Brexit that’s un-achievable, that the public currently can’t vote for. So what’s it supposed to achieve? A pointless waste of time for all involved. Ah: Shame they rejected my idea of giving each participant a table-leg with a nail banged through it and worked on Battle Royale rules.

    This is exactly my point as well - if they did, they shouldn't be an MA

    @Tomlfc1992 Thanks mate, I made a promise to myself, that once approved I would try and help whom ever I could with this process. Knowing how stressful it is, and where I was when I started - it really helps being in the know and getting some guidance from time to time, when needed.

    Kumar thanks for reply I thing U need first check your name spell than comment .... Do a spell check Only then, with the reader’s attention "hooked," should you move on to the thesis. The thesis should be a clear, one-sentence explanation of your position that leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind about which side you are on from the beginning of your essay. Following the thesis, you should provide a mini-outline which previews the examples you will use to support your thesis in the rest of the essay. Not only does this tell the reader what to expect in the paragraphs to come but it also gives them a clearer understanding

    Just make sure you remember to take your Passport out of the your bedside cabinet, before they pack it...

    I think it's often not an intended scam of the system, rather people taking a creative approach in nominating an occupation that doesn't match what DHA considers appropriate for the role.

    Thanks heaps for all your prompt responses Guys. Got same response from my MA, as long as you hold a 457 and nominated for 186 TRT with same occupation as per your current 457, the lodgement is valid and not to worry. I have just imported my application in immi account and it is showing last updated date as 21 Nov 2018 and submitted date as 21 May 2018, also my MA confirmed that He has not done any updates to the application from his side. Hopefully thats a good news.

    I used this back in the UK to upload the make/model/serial of all the companies laptops, to make it easier for recovery if they ever got stolen. Does anyone know of an Aus equivalent?

    Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside due to the gelatin. My boys like lots of jelly so I make my pastry thicker than is normal to accommodate. I could bake longer to dry the pastry through but I prefer it soft inside. yes, I use lard but I seriously can't tell much difference on the odd occasion that I've used margerine. It involves cooking a large pork shoulder Kate so if you're prepared for that expense/time, let me know and I'll send recipe

I believe it is in line with previously discussed application numbers, but some might be interested. Best regards.

    I spent many nights over 3 years in 3 hospitals and my only cost was a few pharmaceuticals. Yes, private health insurance can be a big asset. Cheers, Bobj.
