I am very confused....i thought that "if" or "when" you became permanent you would be entitled to the likes of "child benefit" or "rent allowance" like every other permanent residence!
Is this not the case?
Once you change from Temp to permanent do you still have to wait another 2 years before you are entitled to such benefits?
if so this seems very unfair!
Am i correct also that any applications for 475 visas have been suspended from April 2009?
Does this give anybody reason to worry who are already on a 475 visa....if they fulfil the criteria (12 months working full time & 2 years living in Adelaide)will they definately be granted permanent?
so many rumours going around at the moment not sure what to believe!
