    Medicare Interim Card

    One thing to consider is the Medicare Surcharge Levy. If you earn more thank $100k you may need to pay this. If you have private health you don’t. You might be financially better off taking our private cover.

    Finding lost items

    I lost a pair of sunglasses some time before Christmas. I did t have a clue where they were. I found them about a month ago in the glovebox of a pool car at work. I can’t be sure but I must have left them in there.
  3. Thanks for the reply. Out of curiosity - you can't import anything after 1995? Thanks
  4. I am already in Australia. I have been considering a MK 2 GTI as a collectors item (not my main car). They seem to be few and far between. The ones that do come up seem to have been modified or in poor condition. Would I be able to import one from the UK please?

    Passport expiry and visa grant

    I changed my passport. I updated the details online via this link - https://online.immi.gov.au/lusc/login I was also required to upload a scanned copy of the passport.

    What type of registration do you mean? Is that for a car. If so its about $600 in SA.

    Phone contacts

    I use Boost mobile for $20 a month I get 5GB of data Unlimited domestic & International calls to 15 countries (inc UK) Unlimited domestic & International texts to 15 countries (inc UK) Boost uses the Telstra network so you get the best possible coverage. I travel to regional areas with work and it has always worked well.

    What’s the best solution?

    I did mean that. A combination of fat fingers and auto correct!
  10. I would avoid anywhere north of the CBD. Maybe avoid Plympton as well. Glenelg and Henley Beach are quite nice.

    What’s the best solution?

    It doesn't depends on the bank. I pay no fees with the HSBC and the rates have been slightly better than Moneycorp. If the OP doesn't have an account with a decent bank there maybe an issue.

    Bringing a Child to OZ

    I know it isn't what you asked but something to note in the event you didn't know. A PR only includes 5 years of travel rights. After the 5 years are up one has to apply for a residents return visa to cross the border. It becomes much more complicated to get one of these when you don't live in Australia.

    Australia suspends Skilled Migration Until further notice

    887 seem to be flying trough. I know 2 people who have had theirs processed in around 4 months.
  14. Mitcham and Unley have all those. I love living in this area. Norwood is also a good area for those kinds of things. As a rule I advise to avoid north of the CBD. Those areas tend to be a little rougher.

    Foreign Investment Stamp Duty

    It’s not all about the money. Renting had many downsides. Although ownership does as well.
