    Citizenship Application (by conferral) Checklist

    You can order a certified copy from the General Register Office (GRO). I used this for my visa application(s) and citizenship application. Can't remember the cost but wasn't much in GBP.

    What is traditional British food?

    There's a Cromer in Sydney (kind of between Frenches Forest and the Northern Beaches) but I don't think it has a pier

    Grab an Eccles cake if you see one in a local bakery, and have a good chunk of crumbly cheese with it
  4. Don't think I've ever had a problem with it: https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citizenship/what-does-it-mean
  5. @Lauraloz to be honest I can't remember! I let my partner deal with most of it, and it was four years ago now. I suspect if Seven Seas offered insurance as part of the deal, we would have taken that. I certainly don't remember trying to find our own provider. Will see if I can dig out some info.
  6. Tallawong :) Haven't tried the metro yet, but I have no cause to be heading in that direction for anything in particular. Will probably use it for Macquarie Centre at some point! A lot of my colleagues are now using it, when before then had to come 'the long way' on the train or do a double shuffle on the buses. Certainly seems to be very popular whenever I am passing through Chatswood station!

    Can't locate SP40 form in immi website?

    Looks like it's part of the immi portal - see discussion on another forum below: https://www.australiaforum.com/visas-immigration/286311-form-40sp-online-version.html I applied via the post, so printed out the form, but perhaps given it's an inbuilt part of the online process, it's no longer a standalone form.

    Weird! Are you applying online? Usually there are helpful links in the portal somewhere. I just looked on the Dept of Home Affairs form library, and there's nothing there either...

    309 visa - extend entry date

    My understanding is that this isn't negotiable. The enter by / initial entry date, is based on when your police/health checks etc, expire. Google 'initial entry date Australia visa' or 'extend australia visa entry date'. You can always enter and leave again - or go on a short holiday. It's an expensive way to do it, but your first entry doesn't have to be to live there.

    Thanks, appreciate it!
  13. We used Seven Seas - medium move cube - London to NSW. Can't say I loved their service, but nothing was damaged on arrival. Note we did our own packing and boxing up.

    Hi All, just checking in on this discussion. I applied only this week (18 June 2019), so clearly nothing will pop up for a long time yet!!
