    Day off work for citizenship test

    Weirdest question ever.

    Moved back to the UK and now depressed

    I’ve skimmed through this thread so apologies if I’ve missed the obvious, but to the OP: Why did you leave Melbourne and return to the UK if your life in Melbourne was so perfect?

    Moving to Australia - am I eligible?

    There are always exceptions but my advice to anyone reading this thread and considering emigrating to Australia (to live & work permanently) is that these two (2) things really are the building blocks to a potentially successful visa application : 1. Being YOUNG (20’s preferably) 2. Having a DEGREE If you have those two things and a massive desire to emigrate to Australia, I reckon you can make it work a lot of the time....

    Unpopular opinion, but....

    I think I want to move to the Lake District! Are there any jobs here lol

    Unpopular opinion, but....

    I have lived all up about 10 years in Oz, have seen quite a lot of this great country, but still loads to see. Live in Sydney. Similarly with the UK, seen quite a bit but loads more to see (currently here in the Lake District on holiday). Got me thinking, in my subjective opinion which country do I find more beautiful. And for me it’s no contest. Each time I come back to the UK for 3 weeks a year I am staggered at its beauty, and character, it’s just so quaint. I think when you live in the UK you get desensitised to how beautiful, charming and diverse this island is. Just my 2 cents....

    Your favourite city in the world

    I’ve never been to San Fran but everyone says it is amazing just very hilly lol

    Your favourite city in the world

    For me it would be between London, New York and Sydney. London probably just edges it for its history, free attractions, music, sport (premiership, Wimbledon, Lords, Wembley etc) amazing night life, parks, and theatre. Sydney (because I live here) and New York would be a tied second
  8. Completely random question, and apologies if this has asked before, but if you had to name one world city that you would put as your favourite that you have ever been to what would it be and why?

    Fair call. Those are good points.

    SC190 Obligation Warning

    I’m glad this is being enforced. There is something rather underhand about applying for a state sponsored visa and then buggering off to another state to live and work (which I’m sure people have done as soon as they have arrived in Australia) without even having the courtesy of letting your sponsoring state know. Really, if found out, this is also something that should be considered under the applicant’s “character” assessment when applying for citizenship.

    While the length of time it takes to process applications is ridiculously long in anyone’s books, there is a part of me that wonders : does it really matter? If you are applying for citizenship, then most applicants would (I assume) be planning to commit their lives to Australia; that being an implied condition of citizenship. Therefore if it takes 6-12 months longer than you would ideally like, what is the actual inconvenience?

    That citizenship test seriously needs overhauling. I completed it today in about 90 seconds with 100% and you don’t even have four answers to choose from but THREE! Is it made that easy so children can pass?

    Thanks rammygirl yes I updated them with the new passport and have come into the country twice in last 24 months with the new passport. Thanks again.

    I'm sure this question has been asked numerous times before, but re the evidence of when you first arrived in Australia which you have to provide on the day of the citizenship test, I annoyingly no longer have my original passport. So 2 questions, 1. Don't they know from their system when I first entered the country on my PR visa? (in my case November 2013) 2. If not, would a contract of employment with WA Police (commencing Nov 2013) be sufficient? Thanks

    Those waiting times are ridiculous, typical public servants taking forever to get things done.
