    Employer Sponsored PR Visa

    Dear all, I'd like to ask if there is any possibility for an employer who owns an IGA in Perth to sponsor a Malaysian for employment and possibly permanent residency? Thank you in advance! Regards.
  2. Anyone flown with Malaysian airlines recently? Do you get the 40kg allowance? Ive read a few threads about the service etc but nothing recent about the allowance? If so Im looking at manchester to adelaide which includes manchester to london with Midlands do they honour the 40kg luggage too? also did you get travel insurance ?? Seems that holiday insurance doesnt cover us as emigrating?! Thanks

    Malaysian Police Clearance

    Why does it take ages to get a police clearance certificate from Malaysia? I was informed by the Malaysian High Commission in Canberra that it would take 3-5 months for foreigners once the documents are referred to the Malaysian Foreign Ministry in Kuala Lumpur. This is absolutely ridiculous especially in this day and age of information technology. Has anybody had this sort of experience with the Malaysian authorities or has anybody been able to get a police report sooner than 3 months? The UK police reports only take 2-10 days and someone else from the forum told me that his Chinese police report took only 10 working days.
  6. Hi We are looking at booking our one way tickets to perth in Nov 2010 and are contemplating one of the above airlines. We are also looking at a stopover in Bangkok/Singapore or KL for 3/4 nights. Any suggestions / thoughts are more than welcome Cheers Balman
  7. Hi, Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on who would be best to fly with between Emirates and Malaysian airlines? We were going to book emirates and then after reading some reviews, not so sure? We are flying from Glasogw which is the main reason for planning to book emirates (as they fly from Glasgow). Any help would be appreciated!

  9. Did anyone use Malaysia as a stopover? Seriously considering this as an option as Malaysian Airlines are the cheapest that I have found for a one-way flight. It's them or Singapore Airlines I think.
