  1. Thanks for the info - sorry I cant help with your concerns, you are further down the road than me. Good luck with it all.
  2. Hi Ive been looking at the eligibility requirements for the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card. It seems my husband’s income is below the limit to apply for this card, but mine isnt. Our joint income is too high to apply as a couple. Does anyone know if my husband is allowed to apply on his own account or do you have to apply as a couple? Thanks
  3. Hi Liam. I’ve just sent for a new UK passport - God knows when that will arrive - but reading your mail made me realise that I will need to link my new passport to my PR visa?? If the link hasn’t been made and you need to travel, do you have to take a paper copy of your visa with you?

    Upgrade frozen pension while on holiday

    I think you are mistaken - we are entitled to have our pension upgraded while we are here on holiday so we have no need to prove we are living here - we aren’t! We can produce copies of our e- tickets for the flights if we must, naturally we have our NI numbers and the reason we are here is that we are on holiday! All we need to do is speak to someone but they are proving difficult to cont@ct.

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    You think? Given the current crop of self serving loonies, who would you choose to replace him?

    Lying parasite is doing exactly what I expected and I loathe him for it. Can’t wait to witness his downfall ... it will come.

    6 reasons that you came to live in Australia

    I came to live in Australia because I wanted to watch my grandchildren grow. I love living here and am happy and settled but could have been just as happy and settled in several other places including Spain. My daughter and grandchildren were the compelling reasons behind my move.

    Your Brush With Fame

    I owned a flat upstairs from Jules Holland’s uncle and he and his wife were very friendly with me and my OH. Tenuous I know, but at least I didn’t almost flatten them with my car ...
  11. Hi all we are in our first trip back to the UK after two years, and we’re told that if we rang the DWP and informed them of our presence in the UK, with dates, they would upgrade our pensions for the period we were here. We have tried several times to ring the DWP but never succeeded in getting through to anyone. Does anyone know if it’s possible to claim a temporary upgrade by post, and if so, who do we write to? thanks in advance.

    Is the form 80 the last form? In Hell

    It was the last form we were asked for before issue of a 143 (parents) visa. We had to get a Belgian police check as well as a UK one - you need one for every country you have lived in during the ten years preceding the request for police clearance. We actually found the Belgian clearance simpler and cheaper to obtain even though it had to be translated from French by an immi approved translator. Just find out what you will need to provide (ID, photographs etc) ahead of time so you’ll be able to do it quickly when the time comes. Good luck.
