    Postal services:(

    Hi to all, Not a happy bunny today:( Just found out that a wedding dress I made for my daughter and sent as a gift for her. She has been charged 72 pounds to have it delivered her end, fumming:mad: We put on the parcel it was a gift, but we did insure it for $300 is this what has caused her to pay an import tax??? Does any one know??? Just that I'm making her 3 bridesmaid dresses too and have to post them back. Do I have to take the chance and not insure them. Confuzzled:wacko: Don't want her to pay again:(:shocked: Anyone got any info please:D:D:D And we were told it would take 3/7 working days 10 days later and she still hasn't got it:( But is on it's way:D Cheers Brig xC:x
  3. Hey everyone, I've just got to Melbourne as a backpacker and I'm trying to get things sorted before I find a job. My main concern is a tax file number but the same problem applies to registering with Medicare. I'm moving around a lot so I'm unable to provide a postal address for my TFN to be sent to. Does anyone know a way around this? When I set up my bank account I managed to persuade them to send the bank card to the branch and I'll pick it up but would I be able to do something similar? Thanks in advance

  5. Hi, I stupidly failed to include a copy of my husbands passport for our ACT application and they have requested this within 7 days, hoping someone can help me with who offers the fastest postal service? Thanks!
  6. Hi guys, Sorry if this has been posted before.. I'm ready to lodge my application to the Australia House in London but I have seen a number of ways the address has be written.. Can anyone Inform me of the exact way I should write the address so I know it will get to the right people. Thank you
  7. Hi everyone, I need to pay for my police certificate for my ENS application. ACPO (people that process it) allow you to pay by Cheque, Bankers Draft, or Postal Order. I don't have a cheque account, I have to go in to Barclays to get a bankers draft (I'm in oz) and so that leaves a postal order... can I post them an australian postal order?? A bit worried about currency conversion though... Any suggestions?? I'm a bit stuck...

    Postal Votes

    Someone raised a valid point about postal votes for the UK election this year..... Anyone know how we go about registering as I don't want that eejit Brown and his crew getting in again, as history has always demonstrated the Labour Party always manage to wreck the country!:skeptical:
  9. Just in case anyone is in the same situation...If you want to send your police check applications to ACRO via another delivery company, due to Royal Mail strikes, you need to send them to ACRO, Care of Dash-It Brook 50, Stephenson Road Calmore Industrial Estate Totton Hampshire SO4 3RY This is because their normal address is a PO Box and with other delivery companies you normally need a signature. We are still trying to find a delivery company though! TNT are only doing business accounts already set up due to high demand, got cut off from UPS when trying to organise pick up, had quotes for as much as £108 +VAT!! ...man, I didn't realise how much I used the Royal Mail! :chatterbox: Kempy
  10. Hello All I am new here..and am looking for some possible advice.. I put in a 175 application (CSL 2231-79) a week ago and I used my last address as my residential address on the form as my mail is on a redirect (I am in the UK).....the reason that I did this is having been out of the country from Dec until June 2009 (travelling) I was using this for postal purposes...and since my return I have been staying with family and friends whilst preparing my 175 application.....of course, having now investigated in more detail the police check requirements (proof of address required) and form 80 - I really need/want to give DIAC a new residential address (I can use one of my parents)...my concern is that I will somehow need to explain why I didnt do this at the time of my application - as this residential address has to be from June 2009 to satisfy the police checks...I think I should use form 1023 but am not sure what to say - its a bit difficult to justify not using an "actual" residential address...so I am really worried about how to proceed...if I use form 929 this wont tally up with form 80 later on...any thoughts would be gratefully received ..and yes I have learnt the moral of this story - dont be tempted to "lie" - I dont even have anything to hide it was just that all my mail goes to the original address Thanks all in advance

    Postal address in Oz

    Hi guys ive got my visa and now i have sooo many questions!! But just one for now! I wont have a permenant address in adelaide for at least a month can i get it delivered to the post office / po box for me???? Thanks for everyones advise it really has helped! x
  12. Hiya! We just heard from our sponsor that the Regional Body (WA) approved the 457 visa on their end, meaning our sponsor can send the application with their signature & stamp (or whatever it is) to Immigrations. Woot! One step closer! Since they are paper-filing on their end, I need the correct and full addy for Perth. On the Immi site it's listed as: Locked Bag Number 7 Northbridge WA 6865 Perth Centre of Excellence Here's the stupid question.... *drumroll*: What goes above that? Just "Perth Centre of Excellence", or what? Yes, I know it's a stupid question, but since they are not e-filing I want to be sure it really gets there, LOL! Thanks so much! :notworthy:
  13. Hi All, I am hoping someone can help me with this dilemma... I applied for an Australian Federal Police Check Cert two weeks ago; before it was asked for in order to speed up the process.. My sister lives in Australia so i sent her the completed forms (1101) so that she can get an Australian money order for AUD43.00 and post it to the AFP. I received letter from my C/O asking for the certificate last week and I realised that I was meant to include an international postal reply coupon (IRC) which i did not do... However, on the actual form the current address stated is the same as my postal address... Does anyone know whether there will be a problem when sending it to me from over there?? I am a bit worried... Is there anything I can do now if it is going to be a problem?? Please help!!!

    Postal type question

    Bleeding postal strikes

    Hi - am just having a bit of a moan really. I sent (finally) our visa application off to our agent on 1st August and she has still not received it!! I sent it recorded delivery as thought this would be best and am now panicking that it has got lost. It is now a week today since I sent it and it only had to travel about 20 miles (!). She has received a letter I sent after this though normal post which makes it even worse. I have since discovered that I should have sent it special delivery and not recorded (the first being guaranteed next day, the latter just a signature) so I could kick myself. Am really worried as I stupidly didn't take copies and the thought of doing all those forms again and getting all those certified copies etc fills me with dread! Also, if it doesn't turn up soon we may miss the September deadline. OMG I'm really not happy! :arghh: Sorry for the massive winge but need to get this off my chest. Em x :sad:
