    Eboni received the medicare card today It is a interim card good for one year. Always good to go and apply, took no time at all. And the worst they can say is no.

    No , As Eboni has been issued a medicare number already and we havent been granted the visa yet. It does say you may be eligable while waiting.

    Note: You may also be eligible to enrol in Medicare, if you have applied for, but not yet been granted, this visa.
    This is a direct quote from the DIAC website.

    Yeah Harbinger, that is once the 309 has been granted, not while you are waiting for it to be granted.

    That sounds interesting Ebonistarr, have you got a link to any site that talks about this?

    Oh just a note, We found out that if you are awaiting a 309 visa and have the reciept and the letter of acknowlegement and passport you can go into the medicare office and get your medicare number so if you have a problem and need to go to hospital your covered. Its not mentioned very loudly in the immigration website but if you read the fine print its there.. hope it might help.
    thanks ebonistarr

    Our council doesn't have a restriction on the number of cats you can have. The only thing they said is that if they annoy the neighbors, then it can be a problem. They are all indoor cats so that won't be an issue. We got the forms to register the cats but they sent us the wrong forms so we are calling the council tomorrow to get the correct forms sent to us.

    Oh KK you might have some issues with having so many cats in Australia. The local council where you live will require you to register all your animals and most councils have a limit as to how many animals you can have unless you seek special approval. Just thought I would mention it.

    Yeah, I used to work in animal control, so 6 of the 8 were rescues that when the shelter closed down had no home, so I took them.
