Re: Moving from Aus to England- posting/shipping boxes help

Definitely cheaper than paying airline excess baggage. Declare your goods as personal effects, since you're moving back. You'll need to complete a customs declaration, I think online now, which has...

Update - I called the DVLA again last Friday, asked Kindly for a favour again to escalate the situation to find out where the ID document was. The woman I spoke to initially said that "the Managers...

Re: Moving from Aus to England- posting/shipping boxes help

On the face of it, unless it's urgent, I wouldn't bother. Just ship them over with your other stuff in the container, otherwise you'll be paying a substantial amount.

I expect "Ozzy Post" or...

Re: Tactical question about moving household possessions....

No problem. I've not only been in logistics for 30 years, but also used removal companies three times, so I'm used to the process.

Essentially, you will be charged per cbm. Insurance will be...

Re: Tactical question about moving household possessions....

I expect you'll be using a company such as Santa Fe, Asian Tigers, Pickfords, or more economically, a local company. All will have their own choice of partner to deal with in the UK, and you'll...

Re: Entering the UK without BRP in hand at Immigration

Yes, sorry, they received it on Monday of this week by RMSD.

I'll try the call centre again, maybe I can get someone in a Friday mode rather than a Monday mode this time!

I'll update later.

Nice to hear from you again BIP!

Re: Child Benefit and tax credits

SanDiegoGirl and Invisible's advice is solid.

Entering the UK without BRP in hand at Immigration

Dear All,

Obviously, the normal practice when travelling and returning to the UK during leave to enter status, is that you carry your passport and BRP with you.

My Wife's BRP is stuck with the...

Re: GWF Tracker

As j4v3d says, it's not worth worrying about the tracker. My wife's passport was delivered the following day anyway, so I certainly wasn't going to check something that hadn't worked up until that...

Re: GWF Tracker

Don't worry about the GWF tracker, they never seem to work, at least, not for us and a couple of friends all the way through the applications.

So, this doesn't affect visa status at all then in the future?

Re: UK Spouse Visa - Any work restrictions and Personal income tax allowance?

Congratulations!

1) Unlike a tourist visa, a spouse visa allows the person to live, work, and study in the UK. Hence no work restrictions.

2) As my Wife is about to arrive here after getting...

Re: Moving back with Taiwanese wife

Perhaps 'residence' is a confusing word to use, but it is the place where you live, and clearly, legally, since you have work permits there.

Re: Moving back with Taiwanese wife

Applications should be made from the country of residence.
E.G. A Taiwanese, with legal residence permit or visa to live in Thailand, should apply from Thailand. The only exception to this would...
