    Welcome to my Humble Abode

    I’ve met PQ, Tink, and Rossy before, and they would be invited. Others that would be on my list no longer post, and the cyber world is a duller place without them.

    Considering emigrating to Aus with 11 year old

    Speak to a migration agent first, many should offer an initial assessment without charge, many of the migration agents on here would be recommended. In terms of your degree, the UK undergraduate qual on it own won’t get you registration as a psychologist here (or even provisionally registered) which is a nightmare of a process in itself. I see that it not a path you wish to follow anyway. You say you meet the criteria for one of the other job titles on the skilled list as you get 65 points. What job title are you looking at? There are opportunities within the field, but anything for the govt/public health under the allied health banner generally require registration with the health board. Although other job titles exist of course where registration isn’t required, or there is work in NGOs, it really depends on your experience. So I would run your case past a migration agent (needs to have a MARA number) and then if you do qualify, also start to have a look around what’s required for permission from your ex to remove your son from the UK.

    Return Resident Visa - Approved Same Day

    Ah that’s a shame you’ve been waiting that long. The email for my grant came at the same time as the payment confirmation email. I had to read it a couple of times to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. I was lucky then. Anytime spent out of the country other than holidays? Any moves between countries etc. like Paul mentions above it should be pretty quick for a straightforward application. Maybe get in touch and let them know your travel plans? All the best, I hope you hear soon.
  9. Just a quick note. Ive been resident for over 5 years as a Permanent Resident but the travel rights expired earlier this year. I am in Australia currently also. I’ve applied for a RRV 155 online and made payment and it was granted the same day. So processing may be quick for those who meet the residency, well it was amazingly quick for me. Good luck to others applying/waiting.

    Return Resident Visa

    Hi all I have been here 5 years and have only travelled overseas for holidays for a few weeks in total in that time. I need to apply for a RRV and should meet the requirements for a 5 year one. I have a couple of questions if anyone could help please:- 1) How many forms of ID are required? Is my UK passport enough or do I need to find my birth certificate and/or supply additional forms of ID also? 2) Also, how long are 'straightforward' applications taking currently (how long is a piece of string I know). I'm hoping to travel overseas in a couple of months, is this likely to be processed in time, or is there a huge backlog for RRVs at the minute? I am very out of the loop on visas and timescales these days. Many thanks for any help .

    Bumping Into Other Poms In Oz members?

    I haven't been on for a while and was just looking through 'Chewing' and came across this post.... I've met a handful of people from the site, intentionally. I also have recognised a couple of people from details they've posted, I knew them from connections in the UK, not because of PIO.

    Renting in NSW

    I paid 4 weeks bond plus 2 weeks rent up front, then rent paid fortnightly. It works as I'm paid fortnightly also. I'm regional NSW though, I have no idea what it's like in the city. Water is paid by the landlord. The odd thing in this complex is that the water is not individually metered, so a family of 5 could pay the same as an individual.
