Re: Customs duty into EU for own goods

Original invoice? Probably not available but otherwise how do you expect the customs to know it's not just been ordered and posted over?

Re: Would you rather be...

Sounds like a productive Friday. Neither options please Bob.

Would you rather fight 100 duck sized Andy Carrolls or one Andy Carroll sized duck?

Re: End of Service Benefit Reform

Does this mean your final EOS will be smaller overall amount as it builds up over your service as a percentage of your salary at that time, rather than a multiple of your final salary?

Re: Is the dream dead?

From what I've seen in the construction world, the next or current gravy trains are in medical related and data centre construction and trains themselves (HS, viaduct and underground). Oil and gas...

Re: Is the dream dead?

As a western expat I don't believe any region is capable of providing a long term gold plated lifestyle, surely the cycle is that the region improves to the point where foreign mercenaries are no...

Re: Kuwait labour bans

They are going to do all the cleaning and cooking and minding the kids themselves I heard. Plus the wives have agreed to sleep with their husbands.

Re: IN10 and Acro Certificate application

Not entirely sure but I don't think Saudi just accepts a subject access disclosure, it has to be the full police report. Your contact in the hiring company can probably confirm that's the case. The...

Re: IN10 and Acro Certificate application

I believe the police are going to have the details of your conviction anyway, it will probably come back as 'no live trace'. And then the fun begins

Re: Personal “Toys”

Where's the thread with that guy who had some kind of 'machine' in his apartment for women to try at his parties. How did he get that through the airport?

Re: Brexshit

This bit is pretty ironic, in my experience in Europe and the UK (especially in construction and manufacturing) the UK is far more stringent on health and safety than Europe.

Re: Job offer Saudi - Will I get Visa with a Spent Criminal Record?

You'll just have to submit and wait. I would not be hopeful though as this tends to be a show stopper in my experience.

Re: Brexshit

Correct. Though if I was in the EU's shoes I would push for an extension, as they will definitely get more out of it watching May et al tie themselves in further knots. A no deal Brexit is akin to a...

Re: Brexshit

On the positive side I don't believe that it can be ****ed up any more at this point. You have reached **** up ground zero, the only way is up from here. I'd find it funnier if there wasn't a...

Re: 380 Dead

Try Vistara next time, it's the best internal flight in my experience. It's a tie up with Tata group and Singapore Airlines. Plus they fly from the international terminal in Mumbai rather than the...

Re: Etihad offer - Manager M2

Your timing might be a bit early, I'd hold off for now and see how the new midfield terminal in Abu Dhabi works out. (It may eventually open this year!) It will have a large impact on Etihad.

Re: 380 Dead

The model has to be airports with restricted slots on long haul routes, where instead of needing two or three landing slots you can use one slot to belly flop this monster instead.

Re: Drive from UAE to Jordan ?

Can be done pretty easily from Cairo to Taba, (in my first hand experience) even at night is possible. Biggest drama is avoiding random sand drifts across the road
