    Irish Bank Account

    Hi, yes, I know this is POMS in OZ and we are POMS, but just thought someone maybe able to point us in the right direction. Son is moving from Australia to Ireland for work - he needs an Irish Bank Account, but we're not sure how to get one set up from here - any advice and which Irish Banks are reasonable (I was going to say good, but they're Banks lol). He does have UK and Australian accounts TIA Caroline

    Pondering

    thanks everyone - it was a chat with mates and we were wondering about the legalities - not doing anything - just a discussion

    Pondering

    yes I get that - but you're a UK citizen or the citizen of another country, so how does that stand legally? as I say Im just curious as no-one seems to know. and yes I know you just apply under the 3 month exemption etc

    Pondering

    Just pondering - at the moment you have to apply for an exemption to leave Australia. But if you're not an Australian passport holder ie on PR or a visa, and hold a UK passport - can you actually be prevented from leaving? Just random thinking - and yes, I know they can make it difficult to get back..........

    Moving back with teenagers

    Thanks for the information - theres a lot of talking back and forth, but at the moment both girls want to go, although I know that can change. Im wondering how moving my daughter from year 10 here, into a school in the UK, has anyone any experiences of that thanks

    Moving back with teenagers

    We were thinking of returning in the next 21/2 years when eldest (now 18) has finished uni and youngest (now 16), school. Has anyone moved back with teenagers of this age? It may now be brought forward due to family circumstances and we're wondering about re-entering education in the UK, both in High School and Uni. Looking at moving back to Scotland - any advice? thanks

    Flights & International Cap Levels

    just talked to a travel agent and it seems because of the new lower caps airlines are cancelling whole flights - its a bit of a mess tbh

    Stranded Australians

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-26/flights-to-be-announced-australians-home-christmas-coronavirus/12923656 here's the news about getting Aussies home - its not personally a problem for me - but its horrendous for children missing their parents etc

    Stranded Australians

    definitely a quarantine problem - basically there area maximum of 5000 places per week for the whole country - thats why not everyone could get back initially - some people have been bumped off flights 5 times and your talking a month plus wait each time. The airlines only get told 2 days before flying how many they are allowed to land with - this has been as low as 70 and yes, airlines have done this simply to get people home. Basically the govt dont want people to know that theyre not getting Aussies home - eden when Scomo said come home, by that time - flights had stopped and other countries were going into lockdown Its not as simple as people should have got on flights as some would like to think
