Re: IELTS Test

Did my test a few weeks ago and although I got very good marks I would say it wasn't an easy test. I'm not showing off, but I have a degree in Engineering, an MBA and spend my life writing reports...

Re: how do open a bank account in oz without being a PR

When I was travelling I walked in to ANZ and opened an account on the spot. They delivered the cards to the branch for me and that was that. I still have the account now (savings account so I...

Re: Certified documents or Colour copies

If the colour copies are good enough then obviously they won't know they were not originals and you would not have to certify them. But I have to ask, if you have colour copies then I would assume...
