    Can someone tell me if Byford Animal centre is closed down?

    Hey. Yeah I called Sydney also and confirmed that the Byford Centre is opening on 17th June and they are taking bookings from 3rd June. I've spoken to Bob at PetAir and he has also confirmed that they are having trouble booking the flight path. Typical!!!

  3. I have been in Australia 11 months and now have my PR. I'm looking to send my cat over to be with me in Perth. I miss him so much and to be honest as a family we are totally lost without him. He is with my father who is doing a great job of looking after him but I so want him back with us so we can enjoy his great temperament and fun loving life. I'm really worried he wont survive the flight though. Tom, my cat is 9 years old and got knocked down when he was 1 years old. Since then he is very fearful around cars, noise in general. He at times lives on his nerves. I'm worried he wont make the flight due to the noise and commotion around getting him in the create and the number of people that will man handle him. He doesn't take to people very easy either btw. i'm worried his heart will pack in with the trauma of flying. Do you think its more humane to leave him in Scotland or bring him here to OZ with us? Do you know if there is anyway I can get him chilled out in the cage that he pretty much doesn't know where he is and so wont care lol. I know they cant be sedated

    Now that i'm here and have PR

    Well it was bad enough that therre was no fanfare or flags when i registered at the local migration office to say i was here. But i simply dont know where to go or what is expected. We have a rental, been in it for the past year, I've applied for a car loan as i need a set of wheels (nothing flash) I have a TFN from when i was a temporary resident on WHV, but i dont know what i need to do now. Apply for a new TFN as a PR in Australia, apply for health cover i even hear people talking about tax returns but i have no idea what for or why. slightly more confusing than the application process lol

    applying for car credit

    i'm looking to buy a second hand car from a dealer. when applying for credit they have asked for my previous address from the UK. do they do credit checks overseas?

    Pr granted

    Well i have to say i am bloody excited to have an email today advising us we have PR!!!! Its a great amount of stress lifted off us. I had thought it was a long drawn out affair but we applied in January 2013, had a case officer by Mid February 2013, had our medicals 11th March 2013, police checks we submitted to immigration Monday 22nd April and visa granted 23rd April .. Thats right less than 24 hours later! ​We had thought it would be at least a few weeks to a few months!

    Dizziness?

    I had treated a Patient with this, here is what is on our good old NHS Website http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Vertigo/Pages/Treatment.aspx

    Criminal record

    We have been told that it usually depends on the case officer but since then we are now married and it was 4 years ago. We have been together 13 years so surely it shouldn't be an issue... after all we all have dramas. It would be a shame to fall at this point in our application.

    Criminal record

    i should say it was 4 years ago and we have moved on from that point. We have been living in Perth on a WHV the past year and now on bridging visa's

    Criminal record

    my wife has a criminal record for "Domestic Abuse Aggravator" assault. Basically we were going through a rough patch and as i asked her to leave she slapped me. doesn't sound serious and i laughed it off. Anyway unfortunately for her a cop car passed by and seen it so arrested her. Anyway the conviction was there on the police check after we expected it not to be. Her sentence was deferred / Admonished basically told not to do it again and if she did then it would be more than a kick in the arse she would get. Is this likely to prevent us from getting our 190 visa? ​We're kinda worried now

    Flying my CAT!

    I have been in Australia for 10 months and we are only a month or so hopefully from getting our PR (i'm here on a WHV). basically i had to leave my wee British Tabby with my Dad in the Uk until i was certain that we would not be returning to the UK. This has taken about 7 months longer than expected and so i have been without my furry friend for all this time. (i skype with my dad on a regular basis and see him lol) Sad as it maybe i miss the little fella, he has such a great character and i'm bloody sure he's more human than i am at times. Any my question is what is the dangers of him flying. Its worth pointing out that he lives on his nerves when it comes to loud noise. He was knocked down by a car at 1yr old and since then he is scared of noise that sounds remotely like a car engine. He has just turned 9 yrs old in September and by the time he gets here he will be almost 10 yrs old. Is there any dangers i should be aware of and do you agree about me bringing him over, he is most likely happy with my dad and living a good life but if i left him i would struggle to accept it. bloody confused! ​money isn't an issue i'd give my savings just to get him over here
