  1. My wife was given fraudulent treatment for her medical check for a Spouse Visa 309 offshore. She was told she has TB and needs to pay for 6 months treatment before being approved. Same day, she goes to another doctor, and the doctor finds she is perfectly healthy. So how do we stop the first medical center from submitting the med report to DIAC in one week? I am calling DIAC to inform them that we want to cancel our use of the medical center to facilitate our visa process, and I am calling the center to tell them to cancel it. Any suggestions on what else can be done?:Randy-git:

    police check form help please??

    Hi please can someone help i have filled in form called the police certificate application form costing £35.00 and you have to send copy of passport , photo and 2 bills is this the correct form for police checks?
  3. I'm currently in the middle of my 461 visa and immigration have requested i get police checks done for both uk and australia as i lived in oz for 2 years before. Has anyone had to do the same? I hear a lot about people from this country having to get uk ones done but not aussie. Immigration have only given me 28 days to get both checks done and sent back to them at the oz embassy in london. Unfortunately i have to air mail my application to canberra and am a bit worried i wont have enough time to get all this sorted in time. What if my aussie checks take a long time and i cant get the certificates back to london within the 28 day time limit? Has anyone else been in this situation? Thanks for any help/advice. xx
  4. Please does anyone know how to find out the status of your medicals. I did mine on 20th January 2011. It was sent to Health Operations Centre in Sydney. How do you find out if its finalised?

    Check list for my cat :-)

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some help! My boyfriend and I are moving to Sydney (we are meant to be starting in our new jobs on Monday, but blooming 457 visas are taking an age - but that's another story!!) We are bringing our little moggy with us when we go. To try and save costs we are sorting paperwork etc ourselves - so if anyone can check our list and make sure we've not missed something that'd be a huge help - and remove a massive stress off my mind!! 1. He has a pet passport sorted, just incase we decide to ever come back. So is chipped etc. 2. Have applied for and been granted an AQIS import license. Part A to be completed by our vet no more than 4 days before he travels. Then part B completed at the airport. 3. Have contacted a few companies and are going to send him via petair. They will sort quarantine for us when we book his flight. 5. Have contacted DEFRA and they will send the export form to our vet when we know a leaving date for him. They explained this is identical to and superceeds the AQIS ones - however to be on the safe side our vet will probably fill them both in!!! 6. Tick and tapeworm up to 4 days before? 7. He is fully vaccinated for flu/panleukopaenia (enteritis/parvo) and also FeLV And as far as I can tell this is all we need to do? But I am very worried I have overlooked something! If the vet finds something at the pre-travel check (god forbid!!) what happens to the flight? Anyone know if petair cover for any cancellation for health reasons? Hopefully I am just worrying for no reason, but if anyone could reassure me that'd be great! Thanks J, T and Sebastian the cat!! xx

  8. Hi, In discussions about heading to Melbourne on a 457 visa and trying to get my head around the Australian tax system. I have done some calculations based on two adults and randomly selected a salary of $65,000 AUD to see if I have my sums correct. I have also assumed that if I come over I will be considered 'resident' for tax purposes as I will be working and living in Australia for a minimum of 2 years (if this is incorrect please let me know). From reading the ATO website I'm assuming the following: LAFHA Food component: ATO reasonable weekly food component = $367 AUD (for 2 adults) ATO statutory food amount that can't be claimed = $84 AUD Deducted from taxable income = $367 - $84 = $283 AUD per week Accomodation component: Reasonable amount = Rental prices in Melbourne seem to range from $450 - $850 per week, to be conservative have assumed LAFHA accom. component of $400/week. Total LAFHA = Food+Accomodation = $283+$400=$683/week= $35,516 per annum Income Tax 0% on first $6000 15% on $6001 - $37000 $4650 plus 30% on $37000 - $80000 Taxable income = Gross pay - LAFHA component = $65000 - $35516 = $29484 Tax on $29484 = (29484 - 6000) x 0.15 = $23484 x 0.15 = $3522.60 Medicare Levy 1.5% of gross = $975 Net Income based on salary of $65000 Net salary = Gross - Income tax - medicare levy = $65000 - $3522.60 - $975 = $60,502.40 Surely this can't be correct??? If I do the same calculations without LAFHA net pay comes out at $46, 325. Any advice would be appreciated so that when salary is negotiated I'm in a position to quickly do the maths and make an informed judgement. Thanks

    Police Check - Where is it?

    I received my police certificate last week, so yes, i am officially a good boy. However, we sent mine and the wife's application, they were received and aknowledged at the same time (we made a cock-up so they emailed me to check something) Anyhow, we have not received the wifes certificate, she is starting to panic. Altough she claimes to have been a good girl, she is worried in case there was someone elses files, or a mix up. Has anyone ever received theirs and their partners several days apart, or is it worth ringing them to check?

  17. Hi Good day :cute: I was wondering if any body could give me some ideas regarding security checks and its estimated time line for HR countries such as IRAN and Pakistan, and whether being included in cat2 affects or speeds up the progress of security check or not :eek: Regards:hug::notworthy:
  18. Hey! My partner (Eng) and I (Aus) are in the fun process of putting together the length visa and will be sending his defacto visa off after the 30th Jan (as that's when we have offically lived together for the whole 12months) I have to return to Aus for work purposes after this date and we want to hurry our application along as we just found out after speaking to immigration that there is a 5-6 month wait on Visas!! I can't believe I will have to be apart from my boyfriend for that long!!! I'm soo cross! Anyway we asked about getting his Medical and police check done before hand and the lady at immigration said we couldn't. Yet I read that people get them done before hand.. Really not sure what to do? Any advice would be helpful... why did she say we couldn't do it and if we do do it, will be be a waste of money and will he have to get them re done? Should he at least make an appointment? Confused.....:confused:

    No Fee for NZ Police Check?

    So I was looking at the forms for the NZ Police check (from the website on the DIAC police check list), as although I haven't technically been resident there for a full 12months , I have spent a cumulative total of a year and a half there over the past ten years, and figured a picky CO might want a check. Anyway, have I missed something or is there just not a fee for this service in NZ?
  20. Hi, has anyone from the UK presented themselves to the AHPRA office in Sydney to finalise their registration and have criminal record check carried out.

Due to start work next thursday, getting more anxious/worried that it wont be through in time.
