Re: The New Conservative Age - a good thing?

Wow, that is terrifying. I don't live in the US so not sure whether they are ALL right-wing news channels, I guess they must be local affiliates of one network? Whether right or left though, that is...

Re: struggling to settle

Great Post SDG. I grew up in NZ, moved to London, married a Brit, back to NZ, then to Oz, then back to NZ, and then to Oz again. I am originally from Christchurch and all of my family is there. I...

International Driving License

Hi all,

I'm sure this has been asked before, but a search of the forum did not throw up any recent threads.

A friend is visiting Portugal from Australia and will be hiring a car. Does she...

Re: UK spouse visa 🇬🇧

Hi Annie,

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure our resident experts will be along shortly, but I just wanted to let you know that, if you are relying on savings only (and no wages), the amount you will...

Re: Does baby need an Aus or UK passport?

Surely if the mother is an Australian citizen, then the child will be a citizen from birth, and will NEED an Australian passport, as all Australian citizens must enter and leave Australia on an...

Re: WTF in America

I'm guessing that their reasoning is that no one died or looks likely to, but to my mind that still makes it a mass shooting, just not mass murder. Maybe those of us who don't have to confront this...

Re: Meh! Quake!

Hugs Bevs. We went through the lovely times in Christchurch before decamping to Oz. Hate, hate, hate the things with a passion.

Hope it all settles down.

Re: Spouse Visa Questions

Unless I've missed something, you can't apply yet anyway, as you don't yet have a job lined up in the UK. If you don't have the equivalent of £62,500 in the bank, you will need a job earning £18,600...

Re: Childs routine jabs and routine adult health checks

Just to clarify, "bulk billing" doctors will not usually charge you a fee - they claim directly from Medicare. At least, the ones I have used do. Some practices may advise that they are "bulk...

Re: Childs routine jabs and routine adult health checks

If you are on a PR visa you will qualify for Medicare which is the public health system. You can look out for "bulk billing" GPs, who will only charge the government rate. They are getting thin on...

Re: To have baby in nz or uk?

If I had to make the choice, I would say have the baby in NZ and then move back. Dual (or more) citizenship is a gift that not many get the chance of. My kids have three citizenships they can call...

Re: Massive suburban underground rail project proposal for Melbourne.

Looks amazing, and as said it is way overdue. Especially with Melbourne's population growing the way it is at the moment, we need better options than routing everyone via the city. Hopefully will...

Re: Relocating to UK with US children (Immigration & UK passports)

I could be wrong, but I would have though the most obvious red flag for this would be that you would not have return tickets.

Re: Cliff Top Property!

Having been living in Christchurch during 2010 and 2011 I wholeheartedly agree!!! Seen way too many properties go from cliff top to "renovator's delight". I love living on a hill and having views...

Re: Moving to Melbourne

Hi, welcome.

Much will depend on your budget and whether you want to rent or buy. St Kilda for example is lovely, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone with very young children moving into...

Re: What's the best thing about where you live?
