  1. Looks like after the fun and frolics of 'the wedding' we're back to earth with a bang. British Gas (which has just made £742 million profit) is trying to blackmail the government to reduce their tax burden... http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/may/01/centrica-threatens-shut-morecambe-gas We're all in this together?
  2. Need help. I think I know most of the Ins and Outs of Australian immigration process and I have even given advices to many people, but now for my own situation I can not figure out few things. Ok here my question goes, I am currently on Student Visa which expires next year March and I have already finished my 2 years Master degree in IT this November. Now as I had already got IELTS 7 each before coming here to Australia, I reckon I will get it again when I give IELTS next month in January. But still I won't be able to apply for PR before March as I won't get my ACS assessment by then. So the only option I have got is to apply for TR before I lodge my PR. As everybody knows TR takes a while to be granted and I will be on Bridging Visa A till then, so my question is while being on BVA awaiting TR can I still apply for PR? I saw the immigration website and it says to apply for 885 (onshore PR) you need to be either of the following, > an overseas student or former overseas student > a holder of a Skilled – Graduate (subclass 485) visa or Skilled – Recognised Graduate (subclass 476) visa > a holder of a Trade Skills Training (subclass 471) visa. But it doesn't specify that what if somebody is on bridging visa and waiting for the TR. I will really appreciate your help if you can answer my this question. Thanks
  3. hi, i'm just wondering if this will affect my visa in any way. My visa got approved (subclass 176 under Victoria) last year and i already did my first entry early this year. However, i'm looking at applying citizenship in another country before I permanently move to australia.. because i only plan to do so maybe in 2-3 yrs time from now. Would this have any effect to my VISA? because i know i have to inform the oz government if i have any status changes.. is there any chance the government will revoke my VISA? any adivse would be appreciated. thanks!
  4. Just a 'heads up"-as if there hasn't been enough air disruption lately BA cabin crew may take further strike action soon. Lets hope it all gets sorted out before hand.! BA crew to vote on holding more strikes

    Holding GBP in Aus

    Hello all! I was wondering if anyone is holding or has held their GBP in Australia in order to exchange at a later, more favourbale rate. The reason I ask is because the GBP to AUD rate is completely terrible at the moment. Also, when exchanging the GBP to AUD at a later date e.g after 1 year of residence in Australia give rise to any tax? Has anyone experienced this situation? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Medicals holding things up!

    Phoned this morning to find out how long to get medicals finalised,as wifes and daughters were done on the 21/04/09. Was told as main applicant mine have to be seen by doctor and they are only looking at the medicals that were received on the 19th of March and have a 1 month back log. So looks like even more of a wait.:arghh:
  8. ... but it expired in 2005!! ARRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH Hubby has done this whole thing before, only to split up with his Aussie wife at the last minute and never go! Just had to get out his old passport to get some details about the old visa, and just looking at it and the words "holder permitted to remain in Australia Indefinatly" just make me feel sick!!!! Talk about irony!
