Default Work to Residence visa

Good news: my Skilled Worker visa can be issued a mere 3 weeks after being assigned a case officer. Bad news, it's a Work to Residence Visa. So I've got to work in a job above $55K for three months in the next six.

Anyone know if the duty-free importing of personal effects works for a Work to Residence Visa as well Permanent Residence?

I'm afraid I have no answer for you but in the Xmas spirit (HAPPY XMAS!) I thought I would reply and bump you thread to the top the list!
Enjoy!

Ok MR BMW Man
I hope you are not jumping the Queues this Chrissy. I have read on another forum you will not be taxed , only people without a or under a 12 month work visa will be taxed so you should be ok.
Cheers

The customs people wrote to me and said I'd be taxed on my car.

Quite right to BMW's should pay double inport tax.!!!!!!!!I think you also have to pay for the car to be type approved . ie origional make brake pads and a host of other silly little things.
