  1. (asking for a friend) Hi, My friend, his spouse and first child hold PR visas. As he runs his own business, they decided it would be best for the spouse and first child return to the country of origin to be with family for the delivery towards the end of 2019. The 2nd child was born and they applied for a Child Visa. It’s still pending approval at the Australian High Commission and it’s been now close to 6 months without an answer. With the border closures due to COVID-19, his family is stuck overseas awaiting the visa approval for the newborn. In the last month or so, my friend has also qualified to apply for citizenship by conferral. The question is, can he include both children in his application as dependents? Correct me if I’m wrong, but is it only the main applicant that needs to meet the eligibility criteria? And also, can he include the kids who are currently “stuck” overseas in his application while they are overseas? Is there a requirement that the kids have to be in Australia when applying? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi there, We are looking to return to Oz ASAP and understand that we have to complete a mandatory 14 days in quarantine. We will be arriving in Perth. Does anyone know please how you go about booking into the quarantine centre on arrival? Do you notify someone in advance? I can't find any information online on the actual process once your flight is booked! Many thanks in advance to anyone with any info on this!! Quote Edit

  4. Hi all, I see that Qantas has released some more repatriation flights from LHR to MEL, but does anyone know if you're allowed to get off when they land in PER, since the flight goes direct from LHR-PER-MEL? THANKS SO MUCH ANYONE THAT CAN HELP!!
  5. In the week when a humble, defiant, heroic Centenarian became our new National Treasure, promoted to the rank of Colonel with a Spitfire flyover and the Prime Minister named his new-born son after the Nurses who saved his life, you'd be forgiven for thinking we couldn't find too much more to top that! You're wrong... https://www.moneycorp.com/en-gb/news-hub/weekly-brief-01-may-2020/ As always, please feel free to contact me for a chat!
  6. Hi All, My Thai girfriend is currently with me in Australia on a 12 Month Multi-entry Tourist (Class 600) Visa but has a 3 month (90) day maximum Stay Condition. At 25 April 2020, She will be at the Maximum Stay of 90 Days. Does this mean that 25 April is considered to be her Visa Expiry Date even though the last day to enter Australia is 9 January 2021. Obviously, if it wern't for the current COVID-19 Travel Restrictions in Australia and Thailand, my Girlfriend would be able to Return to Thailand or another country and then return to Australia and stay for a further 90 days. My Girlfriend had a flight booking to return to Thailand on 14 April, but the airline cancelled that flight and has only today supplied a voucher to book another flight. However, information about when that airline will resume flights from Darwin to Bangkok via Singapore is less than reassuring as we all know things change rapidly and from daya to day. Currently they say flights will resume from 15 April, but that is hard to believe given the Restrictions in Australia is likely to remain until at least 31 May so what airline is going to fly here empty to collect a few passenges). Now travelling to other Austalian cities to then travel internationally is also becomning extremely diifficult. Even Thailand has introduced difficult to satisfy criteria, at least in the ccurrent situation if you're located in Darwin, and Thailand has ceased all international arrivals (Thai or not) until at least 15 April, but that may be extended at the last moment. The less than helpful advice from the Dept of Home Affairs web site is that persons whoose Visa is about to expire should apply for another visa if they wish to stay longer. My question is simply, does my Girlfriend need to apply for another Visa if she wishes to stay after/ cannot go home before 25 April 2020. Note: we had planned to commence a Partner Visa Application in a subsequent entry to this current stay. Any help/ advice would be much appreciated
  7. Hi all, Just thought I’d update everyone... I just had my citizenship test. The DHA officer who conducted the interview mentioned that they were going to postpone ALL citizenship tests and ceremonies for the next 6 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She said a formal announcement will be made soon. Ceremonies for urgent cases may still be considered according to the officer. (This is just what I was told and with the situation changing so quickly, we should wait for a formal announcement).
