    The nightmare rental market in Adelaide

    I agree renting here is a nightmare. It almost feels like you are going for a job interview rather than looking for a place to rent. Even if you have all the documents ready and everything is good on your end, you will still be brushed aside and not get the property, makes me wonder what criteria are they using to select tenants. The best option will be getting in touch with the owners directly instead of real estate agents as they are useless. Facebook Market Place and Gum Tree is the better place to look for a place to stay. All the best.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I suggest giving Centrelink a call. They will look into your situation and tell you if you are eligible or not and if eligible then how much they will give you. They are providing financial support to new PR holders but best option will be to give them a quick call. All the best.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    Thanks mate. It seems to be the only way to get it. Filling the form again and submitting it. I am just coming from their office and they said if I’m in a hurry I can give them a call after two days to get the new Medicare number. If no hurry then I can wait for 3 weeks for the cards to arrive.

    887 Visa - What's the update?

    I got in touch with Medicare today regarding my interim medicare cards as they are expiring soon and I haven't received the new permanent cards yet. They told me I have to fill in the Medicare form again, tick on renrollment on the form, send them attested copies of passport and PR Visa proof again to get the new medicare cards. I feel this is waste of time. Did anyone else do this? 
  6. Well what did you expect? Of course I gave them what they’re asking. Where did I say I didn’t give them what they’re asking? just asking to find this process strange to reapply again.

    Thanks. Address is correct. Haven’t received it yet as it’s still showing as interim Medicare online too. Seems like they didn’t even send it.

    All those who got their PRs. Have you got the full Medicare card yet? How did you get it? Online or went to Centrelink directly? Mine is still interim and expiring soon. No info on the site on how to get the full Medicare card that is green colour.

    Usually the request for PCC is the last request before the PR. But there is no guarantee as it depends on the case officer who picks your file. Rest assured you're getting it soon so don't worry as the speed of grants is pretty high nowadays.

    Anyone waiting for English language proof and if ielts exams are delayed due to covid. Call your closest TAFE Center and go for AMEP exam that proves you have functional English. Costs about $350 and takes about two hours and you will get instant letter printed telling the CO you have functional English. They just ask basic English questions and tell you to write simple essay that can be easily done. Get the letter and upload it to the immi account. Done. No need to wait for ielts or PTE.

    Important things to follow after 887

    Regarding interim Medicare card. Do we need to go to Centrelink to apply for the permanent “green” Medicare card or they will send it to us without us doing anything after getting the PR? if you check the Medicare site they are asking us to show proof when we get the PR in order to get the green Medicare card. Or can we apply it online? Anyone has any ideas?
