Re: RRV

Many thanks, that clears things up as far as ditching the "new PR application" idea is concerned. :)

I read that the RRV is valid for 5 years but when does the countdown actually begin? Is it the...

Re: RRV

Thanks, so overall it seems that it's still worth trying for a RRV if it's been 2-3 years instead of going for a new PR application.

Speaking of doing the PR route all over again, does it get...

Re: RRV

Is there a timeframe after which a RRV application will be rejected when it comes to the date a person's PR visa can no longer be used to return to Australia and the time of application for the RRV...

Re: Perth or Brisbane

Brisbane all the way IMO.

There's a lot of talk (not here but in general when discussing Australian cities) about how some cities used to be, whether it's 5, 10, 15 years ago or more. But all that...

Re: Beer Cheaper Than Coffee In Perth

Wow, that is cheap. What strings are attached to this deal?

On a side note, it's amazing how secretive (and what a no-no) it is to make prices open & clear in Aussie pubs. In general you're NOT...

Re: Streaming video - my experience

Re: Corporate Tax Cuts? Better Personal Cuts

Replace trees with ore, oil, gas, whatever. It's still the same old story - dangle a paycheck and expect the goods to be handed over freely.

In fact it's a smart way to get into a market and stay...

Re: Corporate Tax Cuts? Better Personal Cuts

The gov't should gladly send them on their way and pick up where they left off. This whole thing about jobs is just a smokescreen and form of blackmail.

Re: Corporate Tax Cuts? Better Personal Cuts

Well, with more revenue you can spend more. What Australia has is a "daylight robbery of the nation" problem with how its natural resources are being ransacked instead of serving the Australian...

Re: Sky+ box
