    Queensland to reopen borders on July 10, but not to Victoria

    Qld have just announced the border to NSW will be closed from this coming Saturday due to the rising cases in NSW and Victoria. Only rare exemption passes will be given and any returning QLD'ers will have to pay for 14 days mandatory isolation. Cal x

    New members on CTF

    No one has to ask for access, any member can access it although most new members seem to head for the migration / visa section looking for genuine help, rather than CTF with the bickering and political arguments that tend to go on in this section. In fact in all the years ive been on the forum i dont recall a single member joining the forum just to post in CTF (other than those who spat their dummys and came back with a new name,lol) . Cal x

    You mean the thread about Boris's and his brother ? It wasn't removed at all, it was merged with this thread we already have about Boris. Cal x

    Worst day so far

    News reports just being released saying all 3 girls will be charged with fraud as they went to great lengths to hide where they had been. Maximum sentence is 5 yrs jail. http://www.mygc.com.au/breaking-trio-charged-over-trip-thats-sparked-qld-virus-scare/?fbclid=IwAR3FvCrrLqRYmqNqlF3kQXyMVPaS_ZPmwySq5078QaND2DFkgs7SIFrod0o Cal x

    Worst day so far

    The latest news reports are saying one of them will not comply with the track and trace team and will not disclose where she has been this last 8 days... She needs throwing in Brisbane Womens until she starts to talk stupid girl. Cal x

    Worst day so far

    These women are pretty close to me and the whole place is in uproar about them. Quite a few business have had to close and lots of people are now off work with no pay because of their selfish actions. They not only deliberately avoided border control by changing planes at Sydney and not leaving the terminal ,they gave false names and contact info on their declaration forms, the amount of places they visited have locals saying its looks like it was purposely done. So far they have received a $4000 fine , on top of the fine they received in Melbourne for attending an illegal party. They have no concern for anyone but themselves and to be honest going off local facebook pages they would be better and safer in jail right now. On the flip side, the actions from government and QLD health have been fantastic so far with numerous pop up testing stations being put up within hours, lists of every place theyve been distributed quickly etc etc so it seems the track and trace team are on the ball.

    Stamp Duty

    They were the rules when we bought 12 years ago BUT we didnt still own a home in the UK, we had sold it prior to moving here. We did check with the solicitor if having previously owned in the UK it made a difference and he said No as long as you haven't previously owned one in Aus. Cal x

    Stamp Duty

    That's tough and i hope he got the correct info , we were told it doesnt matter what property you have owned overseas, if its your first home purchase in Aus you get the grant. I know of quite a lot of families who received it back when i was doing relocations, all had had a UK home at some point. Cal x
  9. No i dont think it is, but heh thats what the world is coming too, its ridiculous. Cal x
  10. You will be quite the test expert before long,lol.. Ive not had one, but just the idea makes me squirm, so kudos to you for taking it in your stride. Cal x
  11. They are advising you to get tested if you feel unwell here in QLD too. I know of quite a few people who have been tested this last week, all have come back negative for COVID but positive for rhino virus . Cal x

    Migration travel with Coronavirus

    Hi All incoming passengers are monitored and most States have now capped how many per week are allowed in. There are still flights, just not as many and at inflated costs. If you have a read through this thread there are a few people in a similar situation to yourself so you may find it answers some of your questions -
