    Aussie mobile used in the UK payg

    Went back to the UK recently and bought a SIM card at the airport. Guy at the counter set everything up for me as my iPhone had been reset to factory settings.
  3. My mum lived in the family home for 68 years. I lived there for 24. We had 17 years in our first home together before we migrated. Not a person who has to move regularly.

    Quantas direct flight London to Sydney

    Just flew return flight Perth to London. 17hrs 20mins outbound and 15hrs 45mins return. Pleasantly surprised as I usually prefer a short stopover. More legroom than I expected seats were fairly comfortable. Food was alright with a choice of three courses for the main meal and plenty of snacks between that and breakfast. Only gripe with breakfast is that not everyone likes omelette as the only hot option. Service was great with the crew being attentive and helpful.

    Renting outgoings in WA

    You usually have to pay for electricity and gas so need to set up accounts with each (if applicable). You also pay for water usage only with the landlord responsible for any standing charges.

    Residents return visa

    Applied for our RRVs Tuesday night, 27th March and received the grants today. Very speedy considering the time included the Easter weekend. Ours was straightforward as we had not left Australia since the move.

    Flights to the Uk (last minute)

    Just booked flights from Perth as have to go back for a funeral. If we did 2 stops per flight they started at around $1400 each. One stop flights were $1800+. Both of these had flight times of 30Hours or more. As we are flying to London on Monday 16th and fly back Friday 20th we ended up booking the new direct Qantas flights $2100 each as about the same as 1 stop flights with short flight times.

    Now that's over with who wants to start our debate on world hunger?

    We used them in 2012 to get our PR visa and found them to be excellent. Due to age restrictions we needed to help to get things done quickly. they told us exactly what we needed, and when, and kept us informed at all times. We were able to arrange telephone calls to suit us if we had any queries. At the time I did not have a large credit limit on my credit card and they allowed me to transfer money to them and they paid for the application on my behalf which was so helpful. They had originally advised us to apply for a 190 visa due to shorter processing times but at the last minute advised to switch to 189 visa as times had become the same. They made everything so easy for us and we are so glad we decided to use them.

    Citizenship Timeline for years 2015-2016

    that is on my list but was hoping to get it done by someone who won't charge as will probably have to pay for an appointment (I'm a tightarse when it comes to paying even more)
