1) Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals
2) Department of Health and Ageing
3) Dark Oria Hunter Army
4) Doha Online Historical Atlas
5) Department of History of Art
6) Defence Officers Housing Authority

So I guess the correct one is 3.

DARK ORIA HUNTER ARMY which is specialised in hunting werwolves or other evil creatures

What can you do with:
DIMIA
DIMA
DIAC
DIBP

There are hundreds more:

MOFU
GW
S/T
PT
TSS (S)
AIM not to be confused with AIMS
PV
ACLEI
SES
CCC
SD Act
and so proceed ad infinitum

When forum members post such things as:

I have applied for a PV, do they mean Partner Visa, Provisional Visa, Protection visa or something else? It is sometimes, but not always, possible to ascertain what was meant from the context.

When a RMA has to check the meaning of an obscure abbreviation, or a string of them, there is perhaps a case for writing plain English and not trying to outperform the bureaucrats in the acronym stakes.

I am preparing to collect a trio of gch who are returning to SYD from MNL RPI on CPA with their gdn; of course.

Very astute!

You no doubt know that year 9 girls are the most objectionable beings in the known universe. I have one such and a year 6 girl and a year 7 girl.

To introduce some relevance to immigration:

School students who are sponsored for PR by an Australian citizen (for example, additional applicants on a partner visa application) do not have to pay international student fees, so do not let principals tell you otherwise. Some of them insist, until you hit them over the head with a blunt instrument.

I do not think it is limited to year 9 girls!

If I recall correctly you are a carer of the children and fit that in with your RMA work.

Be very proud of yourself not easy.

Yes schooling is a big issue for many, most of mine were in private schools most of the time and looked after us with zero fees during the process but I also had kids I was paying fees for at the same time. There is not much info around for school and people on tr/pr visas.

Would that be a blunt Legislative Instrument?

I have the misfortune to he afflicted by BA BSc PhD B.Ed and decade or two of teaching/tutoring. This does not impress my granddaughters who already know everything. My 10 year old, when she was 8, told me that she had to update the JavaScript run time environment to get Minecraft to run. My 13 year old is worse..About the only time they need me is for the taxi service or money,

When I am old enough are you going to teach me to drive?
When you are old enough, cars will drive themselves!
This is preferable to having a police inspector telling you he booked your daughter for no seat belt because she was driving so fast he could not clock her.

Not sure about the cars driving themselves by then mate - to many non driving themselves things that are too random to predict on a 1D scale.

3D drone below 500ft (above ground level) on a 50 ft grid (horizontal and vertical) can all be done now via GPS - all that is needed is vertical transition areas (landing/take off and change direction sites).

But these drones will be electric so no fuel excise - so no government backing or will to proceed.

The only areas that could not use them are very close to runways - CNS city would be out in most areas north of Central.
