  1. In short, I have my final consultation regarding a small operation I need on the 6th October. It is highly unlikely the NHS will organise this operation within 1 week of that consultation, which leaves me in a difficult position, as my flight to Australia is booked for the 16th October. I cannot fly any later as the visa (WHV) runs out on the 21st October, I will be 32 on the 22nd! Does anyone know, if there's any sort of possibility of me getting this operation in Australia, via the NHS? I can divulge details of the operation, if it matters.

    Hi all Just thought you would like to know that theres an Australian Expo being held in Manchester on the 16th & 17th October 2010. Its being held at 'Manchester Central' which use to be called the Manchester G-Mex Centre. Details can be found at Opportunities Australia Expo Its just my luck that the only time of the year that I am heading down to London to see friends, is the weekend they decide to hold the Expo. :sad: If anyone goes to the Expo could you please return to this thread and share your news and any details you may have received? Cheers Matt
  5. Hi, I arrive in Sydney on the 16th October and was wondering if a few of us wanted to get together for a good old night out, dancing, clubbing, whatever? I will be in the CBD so need to be within reach and I will be all by myself so would be really good to have some company, even if it's a day trip or something.

  7. Just found out that my mum is going to surprise my twin girls for their 16th birthday by flying out from Canada to Australia to spend a month with them. The girls have been a little down at the thought of spending their 16th birthday alone with no real family around them. What a great mother I have.... and a fantastic Nanny. I am not going to let onto the girls until we have to go to the airport to pick her up. Even then I won't let on who we are picking up. Just having a look on their faces when she comes through the gates will say it all. So she will be arriving on November 13th and leaving 2 days before the girls actual birthday in December, however, we are going to go out for a meal on the weekend before their birthday, and I can't wait, it would have been over a year since we last saw each other. The only sad bit is that my dad won't be coming, but on a positive note, I am paying for both of them to come over at xmas 2010 for 4 months. Cheers Karen
  8. Hi All, Statement copied from May 12th update - "Note, that under the priority arrangements, fewer trades-level occupations will be granted a visa in 2009–10." Is the above statement pointing to trades which are already there in CSL, or the ones which were removed from CSL on March 16th update ? Hope DIAC is going to review CSL after July 1st and add some more trade occupations in it.... Please could someone give me any information on this... Cheers Ausdrmz:confused:

  11. Just wondering if anybody has been invited to attend the Skills Expo in London on 15th and 16th March? My wife filled in her application form weeks ago, and with her being a nurse and on the skills in demand list we'd assumed that she would have been invited to go along but we haven't heard a thing back from them :huh: Does anybody know what the score is? How long in advance they let you know? Or have any contact details for the event so that we can chase things up? Thanks, Tony
