    • One of the major pointers to an economic downturn is house prices.  Unfortunately house prices in Perth have definitely dropped in the past 4 years, as all the real estate websites show.   Great time to buy of course, especially as mortgage rates are so low at the moment.   Bottom line though is that most people are affected... some not apparently... but most are in some way or another.  Even a government job is no protection these days either, as a friend who is a level 8 WA government employee found out last year when she and her whole team of 35 were made redundant. Having said all that, I am currently in Queensland staying with my son and his partner, and things are beginning to boom here again after a long recession.  Lots of building, lots of new cafes and other businesses, lots of new jobs, and property prices are on the upward trend.   Utility prices and petrol are still stupidly excessive though, just like all around Australia.   I paid $1.79 a litre for petrol today and nearly had a heartattack!!!
    • Thanks for letting us know Sharon.  It is looking more positive for you.  You will have to request the Uni to do an assessment for Recognised Prior Learning, and it is more than likely that you will then be exempt from certain units.   Keep us posted please!
    • In theory yes. But. You need to be very clear about how this works. While on a bridging visa, you would have little or no access to state assistance. You would have limited acces to healthcare. Combine this with the fact this visa has a processing time of about 30 years, it means you would be spending all of your older years with limited access to any of the assistance most people rely on in their older years. 
    • Hi all, ok, so when I get over 65, can I apply for a brideging visa while on shore, and then get the 804 age parent Visa? my Son lives in Oz (half my children), So I want to spend the rest of my days in Oz, and can I remain in Oz until the non- payment visa is granted? think I have this correct? any advice would be great, Thanks
