    Citizenship help

    Yes, it’s different for different councils. For example, I’ve been told by Brisbane City Council that they only host ceremonies, they don’t arrange them so any comms come from DOHA.

    I didn’t have a stamp in my passport as I went through the electronic gates. I requested evidence via form 1359 but didn’t upload it until the evening after my test and wasn’t asked for it. Mine is approved. Don’t panic, they do know so as long as the date ties up with what you have stated it should be fine!

    What do you wish you had but never will?

    I think you sound like the kind of person pub choir is for! They do it in Brisbane, not sure where else!

    Form 1359 is the request for international movement records. They reply within about 10 days normally I think.

    How do you fry your eggs?

    If I fry them (which is rarely), I put a bit of olive oil in the pan, low heat once the eggs go in, when they are done apart from a bit of gooey white over the yolk, I roll the white over the yolk so that the yolk sits in the middle of two white bits and it just finishes off the white bit nicely and keeps the yolk runny [emoji39] No mess, I even do it whilst camping using a bbq hot plate [emoji1303]

    Any help....I’m totally stuck !!

    I can say first hand how difficult things can be when one party is not fully on board. My OH had a transfer offer with work. They’d had one a few years earlier and turned it down but knowing how mad keen I had been, said they would go this time provided I already had a job to go to (something I now believe they didn’t think would be possible and therefore a great get-out clause). I joined a company in the U.K. who were happy for me to continue working for them from Australia when the day came! Deal done in my mind. We have been here 6 years now and it is only in the last few months or so that anything and everything that has ‘gone wrong’ (no matter how small) has led to my OH telling me I dragged them kicking and screaming onto the plane, leaving everyone and everything they enjoyed behind [emoji20] At no point did I get this impression before we left. Yes there were minor reservations but I wasn’t told how they really felt ‘for fear of ruining my dream’.

    As I understand it, you will be asked at some point in the process-no point doing it in advance as you don’t know how long the processing times will be.

    See so much of this these days ...why?

    A friend of mine is a cosmetic doctor. He’s a fully qualified GP but there’s more money in doing cosmetic injectables. He said this style is going out of fashion again... people are going back towards subtle. Don’t think these two got the memo

    I don’t suppose anyone goes in hoping for this look [emoji2960]

    Resigning and the moral thing to do! HELP

    Nope, , give your required notice and enjoy your summer off. Don’t be guilted into time away from your family so someone else can have theirs, they will find a way to deal with it. Life’s too short!

    online form skipped question pages

    If the page(s) before the consents is Identity Documents then it is the same as mine that I did online (although please bear in mind I completed my form in June 2018)

    Employer Change Pre 186 application

    We had a situation that (on the face of it) sounds similar and I was very glad we had a registered migration agent to navigate the process on our behalf.

    Congrats to your OH. Same scenario as mine. I took my test in May, approved October. OH took test in July, approved same day. No idea why!

    Very confused... need your help

    Hi Latino79, Do you have citizenship in Australia? If so, it would be easy to go to the US to try and see if that suits you better. You would always be able to return to Australia if you realise you do prefer it here after all! It must be difficult that your home country is not really somewhere you feel you can live currently,yet that is where you felt better.
