    Kids Passports

    No my post was about my kids passports being expired, and the main reason I posted was to see if they could enter on an visitor visa in a UK passport as UK passport are half the price, but apparently not, so I guess its a trip to London and a Aussie passport renewal. Quarantine will be what ever it is, but its 6 months away, so no worries mate, thanks for helping

    Considering making the big move

    Hi, Thats exactly what we did. 9 years in QLD, felt home sick, missed my mum so much, worried about her, missed my friends, history etc etc, we have been back 3 years this November, we have holidayed the UK 5 times a year in the first 2 years back, caught up with our friends and our children have bonded with the grandparents. Unfortunately my mum contracted Covid19 in April and passed away, she was the main reason for my longing to return and right now I feel empty, I managed to cram so many memories with her whilst back which Im greatful for, but IMO UK has changed so much in the time we was away and we are in the process of returning to QLD in January, good luck, and if you have citizenship, you can always return. x

    We are planning on going in January, i'm just a bit pee'd that they charge a tax for doing it in the UK, so I thought that if we apply for UK one (which my kids don't hold).

    Kids Passports

    Hi Guys, just a quicky, our kids Australian passports expire this month, we were getting them British ones anyway, but was wondering if we don't renew the Aussie ones in the UK (cost is a rip off) could we re- enter the kids into Aus on UK passports (EVisitor ViSA) with the expired passports as proof of citizenship?? Don't want to travel to London with the Covid situation, thanks in advance.

    Mortgage

    Hi guys, hope everyone is safe and well, just wondering if any of you fellow Poms can advise me? Is it possible to get an Aussie Mortgage to purchase a house in Oz whilst still residing UK?? Thanks Sam

    I too entered on an Expired UK passport 8 months ago, still expired today lol as for my kids (3&5) they are here on their Aussie passports not even applied for UK ones, don't see the point in applying or renewing till we book an overseas holiday [emoji16]

    Nope it didnt need a degree many years ago as it wasnt regulated by a governing body, but then Registration came in and all ODP's have to be on the register and are valid qualified members of the peri-operative team.

    Returning to Blighty after nearly 8 years in Queensland!!

    It is so sad to feel so trapped, thats exactly how I felt, trapped, I had anxiety, stopped going out, hated talking to people about how good my weekend was when in actual fact, id been at home all weekend, not seen a soul since leaving work on Thurs till returning to work on Tues, I felt life was passing me by, and I was only existing in a place the sun shined and the sky was blue, but so lonely. Our parents are aging and have some minor health issues and I wanted to be near them, near my life long friends, I wanted to start living again, instead of existing. The way I see it, is you only live once, this is not a rehearsal, life is too short and happiness is priceless. I love my daughter so much, but I also encourage independence and hopefully she will come home, but that has to be her choice, good luck x

    No she was still living at home with us, we found her a nice apartment and made sure she was set up. She has to live her own life, I cant live my life to suit her, nor would I expect her to live her life to suit me, she is now an adult, can make her own decisions, pay her own bills and be totally independent. Just like I was at 21 going on 22. The question is your happiness too, are you happy there or do you want to be here?? Your daughter then has to decide if she wants to stay in Oz or return, then I guess your daughter needs to be able to support herself should you return and she stay. Its not an easy decision. Its very difficult, it took months to make our decision.
