    An idiots guide to ~ Medicare

    Please help ~ I know that once we arrive, we need to register But what im confused about is: What are we expected to pay :confused: Say for an example (all I can think of) How much would a typical 10 minute Doctor appointment about a possible throat infection cost?

    Idiots Guide to Tax returns

    Guys, First experience of having to actually file a tax return here in Oz. Can someone explain the process or put me in the right direction of an idiots guide? I am here on a post grad research visa, I don't know if that makes any difference. Thank you, Ian Canberra
  4. Gents and ladies... new to the forum so go easy on me - and apologies if it's a really stupid request (I've looked here and can't find anything). We're at the stage where we've decided on the move to Aus and are currently speaking to someone regarding which VISA we'd qualify via. (It seems I juuuust scrape the 100pts on a 175). Is there a step-by-step guide, explained in a really condescending manner, of how we go about things on a daily basis from here. I mean - literally - from scratch, without missing out a single thing, however small it may seem. I'm not sure if it's a blog I need or a guide... we just have absolutely no idea of the process and after exhaustively searching the internet there doesn't seem to be a total idiots guide. If you've got this far, thanks for listening and sorry for rambling.

    presumptious idiots..

    come on guys! - why do people feel the need to have a pop at eachother on PIO??? .... lets use our brains and have a sense of empathy around here... most people are having a hard time for WHATEVER reason and log into POI for support and camaraderie.... There are so many presumptious people on here that don't know anyone's situation... different people have ENTIRELY different, often complex and more than likely, torn emotions about the UK and Australia....It would be a nicer world if we were all supportive, SENSITIVE TO OTHERS and if you have contradictory advice do it DIPLOMATICALLY... just coz you're honest doesn't mean you cant say it nicely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cool:stay cool!
  6. Ok so i have been advised as i am applying for a spousal visa to front load my police checks and medicals. I understand this to mean send them all together instead of waiting for them to be requested. So the police check will be sent back to me good stuff. What about the medical on the web site it says that has to be sent directly. So how does that work? Yours greatfully confused and pounding head of London :arghh:
  7. my OH will be paying the 1.5% medicare levy on his salary. What do we actually get for this?? Also anyone living out there who feels need to top this up with private healthcare policy?? What is ambulance,visual etc?? As usual I've found lots of different explanations and experiences on a trawl through the search on site. Do local goverment workers have a subsidised private health scheme on top of medicare? ( I mean like I can discounts on some Health insurances because I work for a City Council in the UK?) any peeps or agents can set me right ( we're going out on a 457 in Jan to NSW) cheers ann
