    New Zealand bounces out of lockdown - and their currency falls heavily; America announces it's highest unemployment rate - but the USD rises; The UK, especially, seems to be going through a particularly low point and Australia looks best-placed to emerge soonest and more positively than most - but the AUD lost ground to the USD.

    Visa Payments

    I am in the begining stages of trying to find the best visa for my family and we are looking at the 475. There are 2 payments for this visa... when do you make the second payment? I am new at this and very confused. Thanks a TON! :hug: ~Felicia
  16. 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. Also, can a 457 visa holder take a months " garden leave " from working when first arriving in Australia and then start the sponsored work? Cheers all! :smile:
  17. Hi all I just posted this in another forum too but basically we need help in making a decision. Moving to Melbourne as unhappy in the UK after travelling and have itchy feet. We will be looking to start a family in the first few years there and am worried after looking at posts from people than it woul ruin us financially. OH is a Plumber so can earn 60-70 once he has his licence. I am in Public Relations and can get 50-70 depending on the role. So I imagine if we both get jobs at first we would be okay? But what happens when I have a baby? Can you manage on 60-70K? Not much point moving halfway round the world to struggle more is there? Is private health insurance really needed? Are there things not included with Medicare? We have to pay my OH's skills test fees ($2400) this week so want to try and make a decision before we do this. Help needed please xxx:arghh:
  18. Hi, I wondered if any had any experience / advice on super payments after leaving Australia. I had 3 years on 457 visa, then 5 months only on 857, but had to return to UK permanently due to family health reasons. Its extremely unlikely I will ever return to live in Australia, therefore I would be ineligible to claim a pension when I reach retirement age, so am wanting to claim my super payments now. I did not fullfil the required conditions of the 857 visa as i did not complete 2 years with that employer, so I am assuming my visa will be revoked / cancelled soon. All the information I can find on reclaiming super payments is related to temporary visa's, but if my permanent visa is cancelled, how could I ever return to claim a pension? Any advice would be most welcome!
  19. hi there. myself, my husband and daughter are moving to melbourne area in feb/march 2011 and wll be renting. we were just wondering if renting in oz is the same as uk- ie pay 1 months rent in advance and deposit on agreeing to rent a property. just trying to work out how much money we need to have prepared for our accomodation. thanks. ruthx:chatterbox:
  20. Has anyone advice on paying aussie credit cards from the uk when you have closed your aussie bank accounts . If the payments falter do they track you down in the uk or do aussies debts stay in australia.?
  21. Hi, I have already opened a Moneycorp account and a NAB bank account in preparation for my upcoming move to Oz. I wish to start moving money over now to pay for visa fees when they become due. I don't want to forward buy I just want to move it as and when I choose and some of it in the next few days as the exchange rate is becoming acceptable. As I understand it if I transfer funds to my NAB account in Oz I will be unable to then move it out of that account, when I need it for payment of fees, unless I have validated the account. As my next visit to oz will be when I move out permanently this would pose a problem as I need to pay these fees before that. Thinking about it I am sure there must be others ways as many people must be in the same situation. Any help would be most welcome :unsure:
  22. My local Woolworths is now only letting you press Cheque or Savings when paying with Mastercard. Now, a friend at work is saying this is because Woolworths used to take the charge when you pressed Credit but have now passed this charge onto the customer by removing the Credit facility. I go twice a day sometimes if i am having a scatty day!! Is this correct? Will we be charged everytime we pay now???? Very confused.....:wacko:
  23. Do you need to transfer money overseas from the UK on a regular basis? If so, you could benefit from using a Regular Payment Plan (RPP). This is a specific service developed for regular international payments, such as: · Mortgage payments · Pension transfers · Salary transfers · Property maintenance payments The service is automated and will save you time and money when transferring your money. Typically these payments may range from £250. A Regular Payment Plan is fully automated so it takes the hassle out of regular overseas transfers. Your sterling is collected by direct debit and automatically sent to the designated bank account abroad. For every transfer made, you will not have any to pay any transfer fees along with receiving competitive exchange rates. If you would like further information on this service, please feel free to contact me.

    Centrelink Payments

    Hi All, I am thinking about doing an online college course and was trying to find out if I could be entitled to assistance from Centrelink. I have been in Oz on a 457 visa for 2.5 years and have got my application in for PR under the ENS 856 so I know I am not entitled to assistance now but will I be when I get my PR or will I be subject to the 2 year waiting period. On the Centrelink website it says you are exempt from waiting 2 years if you are "the former holder of certain temporary visas" but it doesn't tell you which visas. If I'm not I'll start the course now, if I am I will wait til I get PR. Just wondering if anyone else knows? Thanks, Richard
  25. are they worth doing? I'm 26 and have been working full time for 3 years, over here for who knows how long (possibly long long time) and just wondered if I should do them or not, and if so, how much they are. Ta!! :jiggy:
