    This doesn't mean the borders will open in 2024. By returning to normal they mean the airline will return, passenger numbers will increase, frequency of flights will be restored etc. It doesn't mean that international travel won't be possible until 2024.

    Travel Exemption Experience

    Something to note: The housing market is also booming. According to my friend (who is an expert in the field) the market is currently inflated 15%-20% and it isn't sustainable to continue at this rate. There is a slump coming. The reason for the inflation is that the short term demand has increased due to people moving from Melbourne, most of these people originated in SA. The long lockdown was the straw that broke the camels back.
  3. You don't need to certify. Colour scans are fine. I never had any issues.

    Medicare card in quarantine

    It would probably take longer than 14 days to arrive anyway so I wouldn't bother. In the meantime you will be issued with a number that you can be used anyway. Having a physical card doesn't actually matter.

    RIP Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh

    The problem with repeating a referendum is that it's one sided. Those who want to become a republic have another bite of the cheery and get another shot at getting their way. However those who want a monarchy will never get that chance should Australia become a republic. There will never be a referendum on Australia returning to a monarchy.

    Entering Australia on UK Passport

    Australian law states that Australian citizens must enter the country on Australian passports. If you apply for a visa in his British passport it will be automatically refused.

    New Zealand travel bubble

    Hello, Does anyone know if you have to be an Australian citizen to travel to New Zealand via the new travel bubble or is it open to all passport holders please? Thanks
  8. I suppose it can also depend on how many contributions you need to meet the minimum number of years. I think it was 35 years (off top of my head).
  9. I have just calculated mine. It would take less than 12 months to break even for the voluntary contributions. I didn't take inflation into account.

    Moving To Adelaide

    That’s the other way around. The landlord has 28 days as you quoted. But the tenant has 3 months to end the lease.

    Moving To Adelaide

    You have to give them 3 months notice that you don't want to renew. If you miss this you will be automatically in a new lease.

    You will all be permanent residents. You can use the public health system straight away. You won't have to pay a big bill.

    Moving To Adelaide

    Hello, There are lots of poms in Hallets Cove. In fact it's quite embarrassing, we are supposed to be integrating not setting up little britain. Personally I would avoid the area anyway as some of the surrounding suburbs are a little daggy. The property market is hot here. Both sales and rentals are can be snapped up in just a few days. It works on the terms of the real estate agents - not something I particularly like! I agree with the above about the job situation. I was lucky and managed to snap up an ideal job 5 mins from home. One you get your foot in the door you should be ok. Cheers

    Has anyone been to the Foodland is Pasadena, Adelaide? It's excellent. Have a look at some of these photos - https://www.constructwell.com.au/pasadena/qgwqr8du6ldyc5ynaqixjgzggzhygh

    British supermarkets vs Australian supermarkets

    I find that UK supermarkets are cheaper but the quality of the food in Australian supermarkets is better.
