    Can't keep the mozzies off me at night :(

    Try Natures Own Vitamin B 150... Great for lots of health things, in addition to slightly changing the way your skin smells so the flying insects aren't interested... It works for me better than any of the chemical lotions, sprays and potions I'be tried... Good luck Cx

    Hey Lazybones... Please can you post the link for me? I am 30 June 2010 and haven't heard from them. Maybe they have forgotten about my dusty old file Cx

    Option to transfer from LRR to 457

    Thanks for your responses... Rupert - sorry for the mistake. I kinda keep forgetting that I am still waiting for the LRR Lazybones - I didn't know about the 'experience' bit so thanks for that... But the silence from immi is immense. I haven't heard a bean from them in 18 months and it's quite frustrating... Given that they processed 27 of these visa applications last year (or around about that number) I have decided that holding my breathe might be a bad idea. One day I will open my email to some good news I hope...!! TickledPink... If they are able to sponsor me, I will happily accept, however it is looking as though they may not be able to clear it as there isn't a 'business need' for it. Meaning that they can employ me and there is no risk to them or my job as I am here on the 'never-never-leave-these-shores' visa!!! Thanks again all Cx

    Hi Donna You can work on the bridging visa if you claim hardship and fill in the form when you submit your application. I applied in person and it was approved straight away, although that was before the lengthy wait was confirmed... Once your bridging visa comes into force, you can then apply for your TFN (tax number) and go go go!! I don't think that any immigration officer in their right mind could refuse anyone the ability to legally work for over a decade... Good luck Cx

    Option to transfer from LRR to 457

    Hi all Again, apologies for not coming on here too often recently however I now need some advice from all you wonderful people who have been such an immense help to me over the last 3 years...! Creep over :wink: After being here on the Last Remaining Relative for what feels like forever but is in fact just short of 3 years... I have heard nothing from DIAC regarding my visa having been given a queue date of 30 June 2010. I have the opportunity of being sponsored through work onto a 457 and am wondering what, if any, issues may arise from this. It's very exciting and I love my job (in publishing :biggrin:) but the usual concerns start raising their heads... 1. Could there be any issues regarding getting PM after the 457 has run out? 2. How long before I could apply for PM given that I have 2 1/2 years under my belt on a bridging visa? 3. Could there be any issues regarding anything that I haven't thought of? I really am quite excited that this company took me on as a temp 6 months ago want to take me on permanently and potentially will throw PR in with the bargain... The pay offer isn't that great for a single renting on her own, but it's a job that I love and it's permanent - which means paid holidays and all the benefits of feeling wanted and needed and secure !! My olds are stress-heads and as my sponsors, they really need assurance, and not just from me, that I won't get into any visa problems that may mean that I can't stay... Any advice would be appreciated - I am sooo tempted to jump right in a scream YES in an orgasmic manner, however I need to appear to be the grown-up that I look like and err on the side of caution, for my parents more than for me... Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom Cx

    Cruising on a bridging visa

    Hi GeorgeD The websites state that Residents just need photo ID, none-residents need their passports. I have been on domestic flights with just photo ID but I'm a bit nervous about stepping onto a boat - although I don't know why, I think it would be worse to be refused entry from a boat if they consider me to have been into International Waters... It's all a little too complicated though - maybe I should just head out on the harbour in a tinny!!! Cx

    Cruising on a bridging visa

    Hey Rupert They define 'domestic' as a cruise that doesn't dock off Australia... Cx

    Cruising on a bridging visa

    Hi All Long time, no posts!!! I'm still on the waiting list for the LRR 835 visa and am thinking of booking myself a wee domestic cruise to break the winter blues ... Does anyone know if I will need to get the Bridging Visa B before I go...? I am finding the information on the cruise sites confusing. The cruise I am looking at won't dock anywhere, just go out from and back to Sydney... Thanks C x
