    Super speedy Courier service?

    Hi everyone, With the change looming on the 1st July we are kinda worried that we will not get everything to DIAC in time. We are waiting for our ACS skill test, then have to apply for state sponsorship and once we get all that back only then can we apply to DIAC. So I just wanted to know if anyone knows of a courier company that is super speedy than the usual ones so that we can get applications over to australia in a hurry. Thank you Keglin

  4. hi everyone, have a query which i hope some one will be able to help me with. we are in Oz and applying for ENS visa. Went for my medical and have received a letter referring me to the health undertaking service for TB testing. Now, this has come as a shock and am left wondering where this leaves us with our application. I do have an abnormal x-ray due to a bad case of pneumonia. This was declared for our last visa and was passed through the radiologist and then LCU with no probs. Thought there may have been an issue then, but since there wasn't put it out of my mind. Now, after medical here, again declaring the info and showing letter from my old consultant regarding the pneumonia I have received this referral and need to attend the chest clinic as a suspected TB case. Have never had TB, have been immunised against it, and only have abnormal xray due to lung scarring after the pneumonia, which I have already demonstrated to them. Am obviously really concerned now that this will affect our visa application and am wondering if anyone has experienced this? many thanks

    Military service records/discharge papers

    Hi everyone, On my husbands Spouse Visa app it's asking for proof of Military Service records/Discharge papers. The thing is he doesn't actually have a copy of Service records and as he's still officially working he doesn't have discharge papers. So what have others used as proof? Would his ID and a few pay slips be enough? Many thanks AC
  9. Could anyone tell me whether there is an official governing body with which we could raise a complaint against a Relocation agent we used to relocate from London to Sydney? The Relocation Agent promised us she would not charge a fee should she not be able to find us a suitable property to rent in Sydney. Long story short... she didn't find us a property and has now taken payment for a full service fee (to which we had not agreed). Does anyone know how we can raise this dispute with a formal governing body in order to get our monies back??
  10. Hi All, I have a question related to mig. lawyer. We have used his service with preparing our application (and paid hefty fees). However, I am now on 820 (Partner Temp. Res) and should be getting PR by mid 2012. Last time we got billed over $800 for having letter from DIAC forwarded to us. I mean, I was a bit worried initially whether I can do everything by myself but now I think that there shouldn`t be any problem - we just keep our records, if they ask for an interview, that`s no biggie. So if I stop using his service, should I then call DIAC and tell them to contact me directly? Any experience with that - thanks :dull:
  11. My husband has 20 years in the Fire Service Final Salary Pension Scheme. We are emigrating to Oz in July but despite asking for a value since Oct 08 we are hitting a brick wall. The pensions department say the government are reworking how they calculate the values and they can't therefore give any valuations ! Personally I think this should be illegal - that they should have to provide you with a value within a set time limit. Our worry is that we may end up being resident in Oz for over 6 months before we even get a valuation (we've been pestering for 6 months already so we feel this is a distinct possibility). Also - has anyone transferred a Fire Service pension ? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Does anyone have any experience working for the police service in Queensland? Any existing coppers or new recruits? I'm thinking of a career change and always fancied being in the Police. I've researched a bit on this and all I could find was posts on WA and SA police (as they recruit direct from UK), WA came off fine but general consensus was to stay away from SAPOL! was hoping QLDPOL wasnt in the same class as rubbish employers! Thanks Mac
  13. I have worked as a Community Service Supervisor in Scotland and I can honestly say that this job gave me the most satisfaction out of the jobs I have done. Where would I find info on the same or similar position in Oz?

  18. I have sent my 885 paper appications last friday by express post in Australia. The staff said my applicans would be delivered on 27th of June. When I sent it, I received tracking number for checking tracking. Today, I thought my applications have been delivered and checked tracking number. But, my tracking number is not available, so I contacted Australia Post. They emailed me that they can't find any record and they should investigate. Unfortunately, I must lodge my applications before the end of June. Don't use Australian Post service if you need to send important things.

  20. Discussion on the radio yesterday (Jeremy Vine Radio Two, should be able to get it on replay I imagine) about the whys and wherefores of some of our soldiers receiving free tickets to the Olympics, the discussion whilst being mainly targeted at this particular topic also went further and discussed such things as medals, they are paid, why a special case, and so on. I was somewhat surprised at the tenure of at least 50% of the comments. To try and keep it as succinct as possible some were saying that they were NOT a special case, why should they get this sort of 'special' treatment. I wholly agree that some jobs out there do not get the rewards they deserve, (monetary and public) police, nurses, all types of jobs that 'should' in the cold light of day be rewarded and looked upon with thanks by us, BUT. I do maintain that though (now) entering the services is on a voluntary basis I wholeheartedly agree that our service personal should receive due reward and thanks from a very often apathetic populous. And for one reason ONLY. They do a job that maintains our freedoms, and enables us to live the lives we presently lead. This can be said for generations of soldiers and their families, without them I doubt very much that some of the freedoms we seem to take for granted nowadays would exist. So, in your opinion, are our service personal 'just' doing their job, and should receive little or no extra 'privileges, or are they doing a job that should be rewarded by our country in many ways? I don't want to cause a stir, but with had on heart I was amazed at the sometimes vitriolic debate that took part yesterday on the radio from some members of the public, and what was even more surprising was the fact the a few of the callers had perviously been ex service personnel,:shocked:. Cheers Tony.:wink:
