    Childcare subsidy on a 489 visa?

    When we became PR there was no 2 year wait for childcare subsidy (but was for other benefits). This was 5 years ago. Id check again just in case the person you spoke to made a mistake

    Vacation Days (what's normal?)

    I thonk its company specific. I can take Long service leave at 7 and 10 years. Im in QLD. I can also cash in personal leave if you have enough and been with the company long enough

    UK holiday- recommendations!

    You can get a steam train from Goathland to pickering as well. Nice walks around there if you're into that sort of stuff

    Would you recommend using a Migration Agent

    You can (currently) apply for citizenship after 4 years which would remove the need to bother with the RRV

    Need some help

    If you were born in Australia to permanent residents doesn't that make you an Australian citizen?

    British child

    Why would it make any difference? They have been married for 17 years with 2 kids so from the info given he surely qualifies. No reason not to sort out both at the same time as far as i can see?

    Student Visa

    I dont think school fees are payable in Queensland for temporary visa holders (although this may change) but be aware if you need childcare you wouldnt qualify for the government rebate meaning it would be very expensive
  9. As has been suggested by two others, talk to a registered migration agent to see exactly where you stand

    Permission for what?

    General help

    Timescale may be a bit optimistic as usually you require x years post qualification experience depending on the profession. Id run this past an agent

    Best bank

    True. But this includes no fees on overseas ATMs (or any overseas transactions) and they refund fees on the ATMs at servos etc. They also give you a few days grace if you accidentally go overdrawn. I dont say this about many banks but ive had a really good experience with ING. NAB may also provide something similar...i dont know..

    But he does know the answer. If its urgent, you dont know what you're doing, and don't want to get it wrong then use a professional. You're not going to get anywhere being rude to people who are obviously trying to help

    Can't you just be the secondary applicant on your wife's application? As previously suggested it might be good to talk to a MARA registered agent
