    Visa expiry

    hi, i have a query, we have been granted VE 175 (independent skilled) in june 2012. we have made our initial entry within stipulated period. In this June we are going back to australia. Our visa due to expire in June 2016, my question is, if we couldn't complete 2 year residency period what would happen? (out of 5 years, 2 years should be spend in australia), i believe, there would be 2 monthns short to complete 2 years. kindly reply estahapan.

    activating our visa?

    Hi, you just land anywhere in Australia with ur visas and passports, on arrival at airport, emigration people will scan your passport and upload the information into their system and stamp on the passport as 'emigration arrived'-your visa is activated. no hassles no hurdles.do you have a visa sticker on ur passport? it would be better if u get it done or else take the visa grant letter along with u. no other document is required.

    Australian settlers and an old superstition

    hi all, The blood magic story was very much prevalent in several part of India till late 1940's. illiterate peasants believed that trapping some living creature or human would strengthen it and save the structure from natural calamities. it was only done for mega-structures like dams, bridges.. etc. Great grand father( an out cast, illiterate peasant) of one of my classmate was pushed down to a ditch (deep one, so that victim can't escape) and sealed with concrete at the time of constructing a dam across a rivulet funded by local civic body..! The unsuspecting peasant was lured to the site then pushed down to the ditch then within no time they filled concrete over him. when the filling reached his waist level supervisor asked him 'what do u feel'? (people believe that some sort of untoward incident occurs at the time of this alive burial) (the hapless victim surrenders to his destiny by then and speaks.) He said ' temple on fire' (temple of local deity). anyway that was true the local temple burned out, people say. the burnt remains of the temple was there when i was a child. it was renovated later. i have heard several similar stories like this. im not propagating superstition but, this thing used to occur in our society some 2 decades ago. still in some part people sacrifice cocks, goats or some other animal at the time of construction of mega-structures. BELIEVE IT OR NOT
