    No response from Home Affairs

    Doesn't the No Further Stay on your bridging visa mean you are not allowed to apply for another visa while you are still in Australia? I think you have to apply for a waiver before you can apply for another on shore visa.
  2. Another option is to write the letter yourself, detailing all the relevant information, and then send it to your boss or HR for them to sign. If they just have to sign a letter, they may be more willing than if they have to sit down and write the letter themselves. This is what I did when I got mine done about 12 years ago.

    Man v Fat footy

    Vic Park pal I play in the Cannington league. Just started my 4th season there (although most of last season was cancelled due to Covid) Vic Park is outdoors isn't it? Cannington is indoors at the leisureplex.

    Passport expiry and visa grant

    Once you get your new passport issued you inform them of the new details. I think there is a form on their website you can fill in and submit if any of your details change. Your visa then gets electronically tied to your new passport. I wouldn't leave it to the last minute though, in case it takes a while to process.

    AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP TIMELINES 2020-2021

    Had my test yesterday (5th August) in Perth and passed The only document they asked to see was my drivers licence, even though I'd taken all my old passports, birth certificate etc. I applied back in January and was then asked to supply a UK Police Clearance in February (even though they didn't initially request it on the application). My daughter's application was approved on 15th July (she didn't have to take the test as under 18 at time of application). They said that it could be up to 4 to 6 months before a ceremony is given but depends on council (mine is City of Belmont).

    Hnc recognition

    When did you gain this qualification? Unless you are just starting out in your career, I would think employers would be more interested in your work experience and any trade licences you hold.

    Renewing UK passport in Australia

    Even if you were in the UK, you would have to return your current passport. They cut the corner off it to show it is no longer valid and return it to you with the new passport. If your passport details change while doing your PR, you will need to inform them so that the visa gets transferred to the new passport.
