  3. Hi there I wonder if there is any single travellers with the sponsored 176 ACT visa hoping to go to Canberra in the near future? It would be great to hear from you and see if you are having the same dilemmas as me as one minute I'm ready to book a flight and then the next I've changed my mind again and then I'm on the roundabout wondering what to do for the best. I Look forward to hearing from anybody in the same boat.
  4. Hi all, Does anyone know how the government monitor wage payments made to 457 employer sponsored visa holders? Is it: A ) By wage slip proof B ) By bank statement transfer proof only It's important we know as soon as poss so any help would be greatly appreciated on this issue.

  5. Hi, I am trying to find a GP who bulk bills for people with visitor medicare cards in Sydney. I seem to have hit a brick wall, and have rung lots of practices with no success so far. Does anyone know/use a GP who does this? Mosman/neutral bay/cremorne area ideal, but would be prepared to travel! Why there isn't a centralised website to tell you this info, I don't know. Thanks!
  6. Hi, We're looking into school fees in NSW for 457 visa holders. As we have 4 children I enquired with NSw Dept of Ed if they offered any sibling discounts. No, they don't, but they do offer an exemption procedure. I was told by the Dept of Ed that even if your exemption application fails, you will then be offered automatically the option of paying the full fees in weekly installments. Does anyone have any experience of applying for exemption? Cheers Paul
  7. Hi everyone I am looking for some answers on getting finance on a car on a temporary visa. We want to buy an used car when we reach to Oz. But I only have a temporary visa (475), so Can I get a car loan or not? Thanks if you can help
  8. Hi there, Apologies if this has already been asked... I have hunted and can't seem to see a response. I was granted my 475 in Jan 2010 - I am planning to validate in Oct 2010 with the big move happening June 2011. My occupation is now not on the new SOL and I am wondering if this will have any implications when I go to apply for permanent residency? At the moment the only conditions are live in SA for 2 years and work full time for a year. If anyone has any knowledge that would be greatly appreciated...getting a bit stressed out now!! :no: Thanks, Sharon
  9. Want to protect that income while you are in Australia? Here is a good option At least one insurer has extended the terms of its income insurance plans to allow certain temporary business working visa holders working in Australia to take out income protection insurance. Key details for temporary visa holders Occupation groups MP, AA and A Plan type Indemnity only – Income Insurance or Income Insurance Plus Benefit period Two year maximum Waiting period 30 day minimum Commission Level/flat Conditions Temporary visa holder endorsement which includes a return to Australia clause, a plan cessation on leaving Australia for more than 90 days clause and legislative payment offsets Professionals holding a temporary business working visa now have the opportunity to protect their income while living in Australia. This can help ease the concerns and difficulties you may experience when settling in to Australia, away from familiy and support network back in the UK or Ireland. Are there any special conditions? The plan may be initially taken up with a maximum benefit period of two years and a minimum waiting period of 30 days and on an indemnity basis. If the insured ceases to reside in Australia or leaves Australia for more than 90 consecutive days the Plan will cease immediately and benefits will not be payable. There will also be a return to Australia clause where the life insured may need to return to Australia if they have become totally disabled while overseas. This is general information but you should seek your own advice from a professional adviser in your area best wishes Liam
  10. Hello! I bumped into this forum when doing some research on migrating to Australia and I am hoping to get some advice from you people... My fiance who is a UK citizen who is working in US, and has recently got a job offer to work in an university in Australia starting Feb 2010, and is in the process of applying for a 457 visa. I am living in Hong Kong currently. Initially we were planning to get married within the next year, but now we are wondering whether we should get married before he submits the application (with me as his secondary applicant -- which means we have to get married in the coming month or so). The second option would be for him to add me as his secondary applicant later next year after he arrives at Australia. Does anyone have similar experience? I am just wondering if it would take longer time to approve for the second option... Any advices will be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much, Alice
  11. Hi, wondering if anyone can help lor has previous experience of this. I've been on the australian tax office website and it seems that as a 475 temp regional visa holder I'm classed as non-resident and as such I'm not entitled to the $6400 tax free allowance that residents are. Looking at the tax office taxation bands my husband & I will both be paying an extra $6000 in tax per year until we can submit our PR application in 2 years time. Is there anyway we can prove that we're staying here permanently (sold house, shipped furniture, put dog through quarrantine and hubby itching to join a golf club). Or do we just have to put up with it for the time being and claim the tax back when we eventually get PR ? Or is it just tough luck (which would have been nice to know before we moved) ? Any help appreciated, we both applied for TFN which we've received but they state we're non-residents. Lisa:unsure:
  12. My wife found out today that she didn't get the paediatrics job she applied for. When she asked for feedback she was told that she had a very strong application and interviewed very and that she 'would have gotten the job' if she had been a permanent resident or australian. They had downgraded all temp visa holders in their selection process and prioritised perm residents or australians. Is that legal? Sounds discriminatory to me, especially when she was told in plain english that she was one of the best for the jobs (it's 60 positions spread through hospitals in Newcastle and Sydney) and would have gotten it but for her visa. Anybody have a clue on the legality or that?
  13. Just so nobody else goes through the whole issue with emirates and moving planet and all that. Emirates will not give you the 50kg extra baggage allowance if you do not hold a British passport. The green mamba strikes again.

FAQ - Subclass 457 Visa Holders Affected by the Economic Downturn I am not sure how useful it is because it all says "Contact the Department" - whiich doesn't really get anyone any further forward in my view. With thanks to George Lombard who spotted the latest advice. George's website is here: Visa Info | George Lombard Consultancy Pty. Ltd. Cheers Gill

  18. Good News For Folks On Here.From Tax bonus payment Will you be eligible? We will use your 2007-08 income tax return to determine if you are eligible and how you will receive the payment. You are eligible to receive the payment if: you have lodged or will lodge your 2007-08 income tax return before 30 June 2009 or if you have been granted a deferred date by the Tax Office before Wednesday 18 February 2009 and you lodge your return by the deferred date your 2007-08 taxable income does not exceed than $100,000 your adjusted tax liability for 2007-08 is greater than nil, and you are an Australian resident for tax purposes for the 2007-08 financial year. Persons aged under 18 Some conditions apply for people under 18 years old. Temporary residents If you were an Australian resident for tax purposes for the 2007-08 financial year, and you meet all the other eligibility criteria, you will receive the tax bonus. It does not matter whether you were here on a temporary resident visa or not. Deceased estates Provided all of the eligibility criteria are met, payments will be made to the deceased estate for deceased persons. Still unsure of your eligibility? We send you a notice of assessment after you lodge your tax return. Look at your notice of assessment for the year ending 30 June 2008 and follow the steps on the example below to work out your eligibility. Download printable example (PDF, 56KB) If your taxable income on your 2007-08 notice of assessment exceeds $100,000 you are not eligible for the payment. If your taxable income is $100,000 or less, you can calculate your adjusted tax liability by: adding the amount at label A (tax on taxable income) to the amount at label O (Medicare levy & Medicare levy surcharge), then taking away the amount at label G (tax offsets & other credits). This final figure is your adjusted tax liability. If the figure is greater than zero you are eligible if you meet the other criteria.

  21. Hi everyone, I'm currently in the middle of applying for a de facto visa. I'm now entering the 6th month since I lodged it. I'm really fed up & fustrated, my girlfriend is in Sydney and I'm here missing her like crazzy. Can anyone tell me how long these visas take? Is it normal to take this long? Or do you feel from your experiences that this is in excess. All comments will be muchly appreciated. Cheers guys!
  22. Hi there. Can anyone please advise what the position is regarding taxation on both uk derived income and Australian derived income for temporary residents on a 4 year visa 410 ? The name of any tax agent who is familiar with both UK & Australian tax matters would be useful. I have just been to a branch of a well known tax agent, and they don't seem to have a clue, but will contact head office,and it will take 2/3 weeks !! Thanks to anyone who can help. Tony

    new zealand passport holders

    Hi, Im married to a kiwi and we are looking to move out to Brisbane next year. Our kids hold dual nationality, but they have new zealand citizenship by descent. Meaning that if they dont live in NZ for 3 years their kids do not inherit the nz passport. Anyway, my question is will they qualify for Australian citizenship, and if so how long will they have to be resident for. Best wishes to all many thanks Jayne
