  1. This has already been tried before and it didn't work because everyone moved out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Autonomous_Oblast
  2. You need to wait at least 12 months after renouncing your Australian citizenship before applying for a resumption. Otherwise yes it may be possible to renounce and resume multiple times.

    Converting U.K. driving licence to NSW

    I converted my licence in NSW in 2021 and there was no need to hand in the overseas licence.

    Dual Citizens carrying 651s and Outreach Visits.

    Most ETA applications are presumably issued automatically with no human involvement as the visa is sent almost instantaneously.

    I don't think this would even meet the threshold for lying under the Migration Act. As I said you could reasonably argue that as you did not hold any other valid passport you answered no to the question (not even a question really, just a button that says "add another passport").

    So suppose that you managed to obtain an "illegal" visa as a citizen because of the poorly worded question which you have answered honestly as you do not hold a valid Australian passport, what possible sanctions could there be?

    While not the same as 651 I just checked the ETA app and there is no question about a second nationality, only a second passport. So if you didn't hold a valid Australian passport, you could quite legally omit that information.

    Flight via USA

    If you've been to a naughty country (e.g., Iran, Iraq or Sudan, but there are more) then you will need to apply for a visa and cannot use ESTA. It will tell you that when you apply for the ESTA.

    Malaysia Airlines

    I'm pretty sure that Singapore Airlines was still using that airspace up until the shoot-down. In fact there was a Singapore Airlines plane in the vicinity of the shoot-down at the time. Would you avoid flying SIA as well?

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    According to the following meta-study from the British Medical Journal, the relative risk (RR) of being born pre-term is 1.71. That means 71% more babies were born prematurely to an infected mother versus control. https://gh.bmj.com/content/8/1/e009495 Neonates born to women with SARS-CoV-2 infection were more likely to be admitted to a neonatal care unit after birth (7 studies; n=7637; RR 1.86, 95% CI 1.12 to 3.08); be born preterm (7 studies; n=6233; RR 1.71, 95% CI 1.28 to 2.29) or moderately preterm (7 studies; n=6071; RR 2.92, 95% CI 1.88 to 4.54); and to be born low birth weight (12 studies; n=11 930; RR 1.19, 95% CI 1.02 to 1.40). Infection was not linked to stillbirth. Studies were generally at low or moderate risk of bias.
  13. Assuming the OP has entered Australia at least once since the 100 visa was issued, any time spent living overseas since that entry may still count towards citizenship due to the fact that their spouse is an Australian citizen.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    Life expectancy in the USA dropped by more than two whole years thanks to Covid-19: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2022/08/31/1120192583/life-expectancy-in-the-u-s-continues-to-drop-driven-by-covid-19 Life expectancy in the U.S. fell in 2021, for the second year in a row. It was the first time life expectancy dropped two years in a row in 100 years. In 2019, someone born in the U.S. had a life expectancy of 79 years. In 202o, because of the pandemic, that dropped to 77 years. In 2021 life-span dropped again — to 76.1 years. And for some Americans, life expectancy is even lower, according to a provisional analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
