    Has anyone applied for citizenship lately?

    We arrived on October 15 and have spent at least a month out of the country,will we be able to apply October 19?what happens if you go home after your 4 years without getting citizenship,can you apply from the U.K.?or do you have to be staying here
  2. Hi cara me and my wife and 3 bhoys moved to oz in October 2015 and moved to carramar which is a great area and just across from tapping which are both nice areas,I m also a carpenter,I had worked for a high end builder when I arrived but the builder has ran out of work as he used to build 10-20 houses(28 in 2010)a year but will build 1 this year ,there has been a massive slow down in the house building and most houses don t have a lot of joinery work in them and rates are at the lowest in years for me it s very similar to the recession in the uk from 2008 onwards i have been on the commercial sites which has been a nightmare for me as I ve always worked for myself,because of the shortage of work the subbies are taking the piss and most are paying the lowest in years best of luck

    merriwa/clarkston,ridgewood areas

    Thought so it was just that a friend of friend had met us at the weekend saying parts of merriwa can be rough and the house at the train station side of Clarkston .What some people class as rough would totally different to another person,can t imagine any of the areas in Perth being anything as bad as some of Glasgow ?or any big city here?
