    Sponsor going bust

    If you dont want to go back ,try to find a company to take the sponsorship over, many people have done this in the past. Get out and door knock to sell yourself. Cal x

    VISA 3 year ban

    Ok, but ,are you not asking if you can get some sort of temporary visa whilst you wait for a decision on the visa application you have already submitted ? If so you have sort of answered your own question above i would imagine. Cal x

    VISA 3 year ban

    I would be double checking with your agent, as i didn't think you could enter on ANY visa whilst under an entry ban... Is your agent MARA registered? Cal x

    Demerit points on a UK license

    How far over the 3 months are you ? If it isn't much ,you could try saying you didn't realise, but i don't know if it would work. Your flat mate will have to say who was driving so they will get in touch with you. You could be charged with driving unlicensed but hopefully if your not far past the 3 mth mark they may show some leniency, tell you to convert your overseas licence then fine you and give you the points.

  8. What visa would you be on ? Some allow you to claim family tax benefit and rent assistance pretty much straight away. I think the cost of your rent will be the biggest factor. Cal x

    Positive Emigrating To Australia True Life Stories

    12 years ago today we arrived in Brisbane from the UK and 13 years of posting on PIO which has been a life line at times and has led to some long term off forum friendships ... Still enjoying life with no regrets and firmly believing in life is what you make it . Cal x

    Is it OK to pay a Lady a compliment?

    I think men have it tough nowadays and have to be very careful. Innocent comments can be taken out of all proportion and it seems too easy to accuse people of things. A little off track but i was talking to a work mate this weekend and he said when he was away camping a few weeks ago ,he had been for a run in the morning and on his way back to the van found a little girl upset, no adults were around, so he asked if she was ok. She was lost and couldn't remember where her van was,he was torn what to do as he didn't want anyone thinking or accusing him of something sinister. He wasn't far from the site office so told her to follow him there and made sure he kept a good distance from here. Its a sad situation when men (and sometimes women) feel they cant pay a compliment or do a helpful deed without wondering, what if...? Cal x

    Emigrating without son

    We have had a couple of posters lately who have teenage sons who ''didnt want to move'' and now a few years on they do and cannot get here, so what ever you decide i would push for him to get the visa and at least activate it, that way he has a slightly better chance of moving here if circumstances change in the future. Good luck with everything Cal x
  15. It should clear customs fine. Are you bringing the bed frame too as they are slightly different sizes here? Cal x
