    Cats in Australia (wildlife)

    Our cat was a hunter which was hated by our Australian neighbors who regularly caught her in a cat trap and took her to the pound, costing $100 each time to get her out, she also unfortunately enjoyed snake catching, we tried to keep her in but she was so miserable, last time she was seen was with a snake in her mouth and she never came back, think her hunting got the better of her in the end ?
  7. Thanks for all the advice it's been really helpful and reassuring ?
  8. If my dad applies for a non contributory parent visa whilst in Australia is there any way he can then stay in the country and access his pension as I believe they can take many years to be granted.
  9. Just a quick question if my dad applies for non contributory visa in Australia can he stay while it is processed or does he have to leave as I believe these can take up to 20 years to process and he is 71 now ( we can't afford contributory)

    There are good and bad points about each country, you just have to do what makes you happy ?

    Remember things change both in oz and the UK, nothing will stay as you remember it.

    Poms Going Home to UK (register)

    We have been back in the UK for 6 years, but after a recent visit to the gold coast catching up with friends and work colleagues, I have made the decision to return to oz, bored of the UK now in true ping pong style, to be fair I was dragged back to the uk ?

    Permanent residence for grandson

    Thanks all, when we got our visas in 2008 we got 2 years to activate but this must have changed, loan might be the only option to activate but didnt really want to get more in debt.

    Permanent residence for grandson

    We recently got permanent residence for our grandsdon, however we were told it would take 18 months, we got his visa in 10 weeks which may seem fantastic but he needs to enter Australia by June this year,unfortunately our house sale will probably not be complete in time and until the house is sold we do not have funds for a holiday to activate his visa, Australia house said the visa must be activated by this date or it will be cancelled, or we could risk appealing after the date, does anyone know what our chances of winning the appeal would be. We had timed it so the 18 months process would fit in, plus you used to get 2 years to activate your visa.
  15. We are permanent residents looking to return to oz next year, can anyone give me a review of Pimpama state high as house prices look reasonable there, just want to make sure the school is good. Also my daughter wants to do her nurse training, is there any financial help for PR as i believe HECS is only for citizens now. Thanks in advance.
