    Australian Citizenship

    Hi, I'm just wondering if you had any luck with your online application, I have exactly the same issue and it won't let me past page 3. Very frustrating but I've bought this upon myself by letting the passports expire when I could have got this done months ago! Cheers, Scott

    child benefit and rent assistance in Oz

    thanks for that...I wish I had known earlier, would have made life a lot easier instead of worrying about money all the time...Do you know if they backpay from date of arrival or pay it from time of registration??
  9. I have just been speaking to a guy who came out here 4 years ago and lives on the gold coast.He came out on the same visa we did (176 skilled) and has told me I can claim the Aussie version of child benefit and can claim rent assistance from Centrelink.Does anyone know if this is true?I thought that I could not claim any assistance for anything for 2 years. My wife has found part-time work but I currently am not working(not through lack of trying).Any help would be great thanks, Scott and Sally
