  1. Hi all, My dad has just booked to come out to visit us in Adelaide next week through a travel agent in the UK. I don't know the full story but when it came to applying for his tourist visa online, they could not complete it because on his passport my dad is listed as being a British Subject and not a British Citizen (he was born in Ireland). He is going back to visit the agent today to see if they can help him further with this, although a visit to the Consulate in London may be in order. My question is has anyone on here had a similar issue and was it a problem in obtaining a visa? The brief research that i have done indicates that there are two types of tourist visa; a subclass 671 which is the ETA that most people will get and then there is a subclass 676 which is a more comprehensive application. Thanks for the help in advance. Rich.
  2. hello, Where do Irish citizens working on 457 visa buy health insurance? Or do they not need one as they are already eligible for Medicare?
  3. G’Day All! Hope you are enjoying the lovely weather, fingers crossed I will be there to enjoy it with you soon!! I am currently about to launch my 457 Visa Application Online. On the very last page of the application they request that you attach a letter from your health insurer to confirm appropriate health insurance has been taken out. This is my conundrum... I am a UK British Citizen, was born in London etc. Now, I was under the impression that UK and Oz had a reciprocal health care arrangement which meant that the requirement for health insurance was void for British Citizens? Is this the case? If so then what do I tick when it asks... "I understand that I must attach a letter from my insurer confirming that I and any other applicants included in the application have made adequate arrangements for health insurance during the period of my/our intended stay in Australia. For more information and a copy of the certification letter click here" Do I click the "I agree?" option or the "I do not agree" option? It's a little question but I want the visa to go through as quickly as possible without any hickups! Thanks for your time guy's! Fingers crossed :biggrin: Gaz

    Is there an Aussie citizens advice bureau?

    Is there an Aussie version of CAB or such like as we're having issues with a builder who's not returning a returnable deposit, surprise surprise builders being underhand. I'd like to get some advice as all my ideas involve going down there to sort them out, which would probably be frowned upon by the constabulary.

    Second class citizens

    Generals told to travel 2nd class - Times Online div#related-article-links p a, div#related-article-links p a:visited { color:#06c; } GORDON BROWN has delivered a final humiliation to the armed forces by ordering admirals, generals and air chief marshals to travel second class to help cut costs. Is this the way this damned Labour government treat these people. BTW it excludes politicians! Get rid of this evil man please!:arghh:
  6. Figures published by the Home Office show the number of people given citizenship last year jumped by almost 60 per cent to a record 203,865. When Labour came to power in 1997 the figure was 37,000. Record number of migrants become UK citizens, figures show - Times Online Good old Labor
  7. Hi, I think I know the answer but would just like to make sure, I've seen job ads which state "To be eligible for this role you must be an Australian Citizen, willing to undertake an Australian Federal Government security clearance. " I'm assuming that means that PR's can't apply? Cheers!
  8. hi everyone me and my partner have lived here now for 3 years, first on a 457 visa, and was granted PR earlier this year. I wondered when we are eligible to apply for citizenship, is it when you have lived here for 4 yrs, or after PR for 4 years? thanks tracy

    How do kids become Aussie citizens?

    Does anyone know, if after the right time we decide to become Aussie citizens what is the status of our children. Do they have to wait until they're 18 before they can become Aussies? Shaz.
