So following a horrific phone call back in March regarding my mum's health I was granted exemption to leave Oz to return to the UK. Thank goodness she is recovering and I am currently living with her and supporting her in that journey. I however left behind my job (who have so kindly let me continue working remotely), my partner and my home. I was granted my 820 visa a couple of days before leaving the country also. My question is, as my mum continues to recover i'm beginning to think about my return to Oz. I always knew it would be incredibly hard but I wonder if anyone has managed it and how hard it was? From what I gather as an 820 holder I don't need exemption to get back in it's just getting flights that's the impossible part? Any advice or shared experiences would be greatly appreciated.
Hi all, I came out as a backpacker knowing there was a chance I might stay. I'm now going through the de facto visa process and wonder what I need to do in England to "tie up loose ends". Are there specific people I have to let know? I still have active bank accounts and licence etc registered to my mum's address which i'll continue to keep as we go back to the England approx once a year (pre-covid anyway). I was reading a blog on here earlier that mentioned not being entitled to NHS in England as there is a period of paying no tax or national insurance. So long story short, as my PR approaches, what do I need to do in England? Moving back in the future has not been ruled out.
