Re: BE's not what it used to be...

I'm a temporary resident and I can only borrow a certain amount from the finance company. I can't afford the car I want with cash.

Re: Is it just me or is it stupidly difficult to get a job on Temp Residency status?!

I have a 5 year temporary visa, (with NO pathway to PR) but I managed to get a permanent job with a large company, very easily.
