    Medical Cover while on a PMV

    Im now in oz on a Prospective Marriage Visa and after Medicare but apparently there is a loop hole that on a PMV you cant apply for Medicare until you have submitted the Partner visa which would be after we are married! Would I still be covered some what on the reciprocal agreement that Britain and Australia have with medical cover for citizens.
  4. Thanks!! Think mine arrives September 14th about a month earlier than expected! Yeah she is, made the leaving part much easier!
  5. Just thought Id drop by since its been a while from I was on here. We arrived in Oz yesterday morning after spending about 3 weeks touring through the south east of the Republic of Ireland and about 2 weeks in Northern Ireland with my family before flying out of Dublin on Wednesday night, spend a day in Dubai ( Loved it and would recommend) and arrived here on Saturday morning! Next step is to change over my license, sort out the bank accounts in uk and oz and to start looking at rentals! Start back to the shop I used to work in when I was last in Oz!
  6. Dam yours was fast !! Id love to do a campervan trip of Oz! Some day! Which part of Melbourne are you heading too?

    Ive booked with move cube and if you look at the breakdown of the destination charges its basically the customs clearance charge plus the delivery fee of the cube if you chose door to door
  10. Pretty sure this is the bomb that DUP Arlene Foster was involved in as a youngster.
  11. Theres forms to fill out and it details whats needed, for example.. Box 1 Clothes ... Box 2 Cutlery etc etc they dont need to know the pattern of your best shirt lol I've had no mention of material items are made off but the Move Cube folk have paper work with guide lines on each section of the customs forms. They do say put shoes etc at the front of the box. Yeah it totally is, never expected so.. I just imagined packing a suit case and going You can get help with packing and unpacking the Movecube.

  14. The town where I live seen alot of the troubles, Im in my mid 20s but I still remember the bombings, I remember the soldiers walking fully armed on both sides of the streets, I remember the huge barriers that closed off the main street. I remember the helicopters dropping troops into the fields where we played. I remember the family members being targeted by the Ira, unfortunately someone else was killed in this instance because of mistaken identity, but in recent years a relative was targeted by the Ira and killed on his way to work, was big headlines here and still does be. Most of the hotels in the town have been blew up at least once, the bar around the corner from me was blew up twice and endless amounts of bomb 'scares'. Things are different today most of the time but there is still tension in certain places and at certain times, Ive no respect for the IRA or anyone who was a 'follower' that includes some members of Sinn Fein, ( Might I add its the same for those from UVF/UDA etc) I know that many people viewed Northern Ireland as a extremely dangerous place to visit ( and still do) but these days its probably one of the safest now!
