Hi Everyone

I've just singed up in this forum and I'm glad that I found it.

1-)I am planning to go to Brisbane in September from the United States.At that time I will be 31 years old when I enter at that time .my birthday is in June(born in June 1981) so if I apply the visa in this week, and if I granted in a week or so, it should be any problem when I enter to Australia in September?Can they say "you're 31 now, you can't get in to the country with this visa"?I know official website says that I have 12 months to enter to country after my visa granted, but in my case I will be older than 30.I'm concerned about that.

2-)Also should I say answer YES to the question about health insurance in visa application?I don't have any travel or special insurance and I just would love to wait until my visa granted in order to get health insurance.

3-)Do you hold any citizenship other than the nationality provided with the passport details above?I answered Yes to this question because I have dual citizenship but my Turkish passport is expired.In that section it asks "Passport date of expiry" and gives me future dates.So I can't do anything, but leave all page blank except one part.I just answered Turkey to the question "Other Citizenship".What else I should do?Did anyone had similar experience?

4-)What employment do you intend to do in Australia?Should I answer to this question?I am not quite sure what I will do now, so leaving blank is a good option?

Thank you in advance..

Im in the same situation as i will be 31 when i go next yr (3wks before my 32nd birthday) i got my visa last week so you should be fine. You just have to be 30 when applying for it.

With the health insurance, im assuming you will be getting that when you buy your flight ticket so that should be fine too.

Cant answer your question about the passport as im from the uk so only have the one.

Ive put that im looking to work in accomodation, cafes and restaurants as the others didnt fit what i actually want to do out there. Im mainly looking at doing admin work. Would love to work in a bar on the beach tho! Ha!

Hope this helps

I really appreciated for your time and help Becki..Now I feel much more comfortable:)
I'd like to work with my friend over there.We are planning to do Security Camera Installations, but working in bars at beach sounds like a fabulous plan haha
When you filled out your application did you give specific entry date?Because there is questions "When do you propose to enter Australia using the visa you are applying for now?"Did you answer this question?If you did you've said 2013?
