    Do kids have their own Citizenship Application?

    I think my husband completed the 17 year olds on her behalf or they did it together - he's not yet completed his and the 14 year olds

    Kidney Transplant and Visa!!

    it doesn't just depend on your illness and cost to treat it, it also depends on how valuable your particular skill is to Australia. Some of us have got visas, but its a very long journey, and your skills really need to be something that Australia is really short off. As well as the length of time you've specialised in your field, your level of experience. I dont know anyone who has done it without an agent. Personal experience, I wouldn't think twice about using one, a specialised one like the ones on here.

    PR Visa - Expiry

    Hi, Our Pr visa is due to expire this year, we are applying for citizenship, but my husband may have to wait longer as he has spent some time working for an Australian University, out of the country, if he cant apply for citizenship yet, can you extend the visa or what. I cant quite figure it out for the immigration website. Secondly our sons PR will also expire, he is studying abroad at the moment, due to finish and return later this year, he's 25 so classed as independent, I guess, although originally included on our PR, so his will run out too. What visa will he need to apply for? We are all settled here, have two younger children fully integrated here, so his intention has always been to return. thanks for any advice

    Letting agent question

    I would look into reporting them and claim for expenses for moving agents.
