Re: L1 - extension denied (PANIC!!!)

I'm sorry you're going through this. I have been speaking with a fantastic immigration lawyer in NYC, she's Australian (our visa is Oz-based) but I'm sure could advise. <<<SNIP>>>

Should the only...

Re: Missus cannot get a flight back

Apologies - rammygirl and I posted at exactly the same time and said almost exactly the same thing but at least there's a consensus. quoll makes a good point - if it's costing her to stay there,...

Re: Missus cannot get a flight back

I'm in a few FB groups containing many people with this issue. Some have lost their jobs and so their visas, and just cannot get to a country they're legally entitled to live in. Those without...

Re: San Diego and surrounds

That's correct - life has changed, the commute is now from master bedroom to study. I read just this morning that 48.7% of workers in Seattle Metro are WFH, and for office workers I'm sure that's...

I found San Diego by googling "where is it always in the 70s".

Re: San Diego and surrounds

Thanks, J. To be honest we have missed a car during this six month virtual lockdown and have had some real issues with zipcar - just not enough of them available, and people not returning them on...

That's great, thanks a lot. Some of them I know of, all of them I will investigate.

San Diego and surrounds

Hello, most of the threads I found on this are old and closed. We're no longer tied to one location so thinking of moving south for the Winter. I know some of you live (or have lived) in San Diego...

Re: Who else is concerned about trip to UK for Christmas with family?

We're obviously talking at cross purposes and there's something I'm not getting across clearly so I'm going to bow out now.

Lansbury - I imagine that working in BRI A&E is a challenge at the best...

Re: Who else is concerned about trip to UK for Christmas with family?

E3. Could be fine, just not prepared to risk it. (Company's immi lawyer advised not to, got independent advice and that was similar.)

Re: Who else is concerned about trip to UK for Christmas with family?

I've lost count of the emails I've had from various airlines about no change fees - that could be one of them (as I have an account) so worth a look.

edit: To clarify, the flights I've booked are...

Re: Who else is concerned about trip to UK for Christmas with family?

I don't consider the UK home and haven't spent Christmas there for more years than I can remember (well before we left in 2002) but personally, though I am desperate to see my Dad, I won't be going...

Re: My Gov account

I set up mine while still in Oz but now in the US, and I do have problems with it. Can't seem to update with an overseas address and, after paying through the nose for 12 months of mail redirect, I'm...

Re: Flying our 10 year old cat out to Western Australia (Perth)

I doubt it is allowed - AFAIK it's not very common outside the US, where a lot of people seem to fly their pets regularly, domestically.

In all it will be about 24 hours of flying. I would not put...

Re: Flying our 10 year old cat out to Western Australia (Perth)

Ours are hand-reared and totally neurotic. We flew three from Singapore to Sydney (when they had to do a month in quarantine) and last year moved two from Sydney to Seattle. One was then 17 and the...

Re: Some Queensland coast climate advice please

Re: Changing work & toil direction as mature adults. - A discussion.
