    approved visa agents

    Yes that is why I asked , I was aware that only some agents are able to procure retirement visas. They are known as appointed/approved agents. I have been told to be careful who you use as you cannot change their sponsorship. If you leave them you have to start again from scratch. I am aware...

    Yes made the trip this morning. They could not fix it. Think they were telling me the motherboard or whatever needed replacing. However the board made in Indonesia was different to my phone which was bought in Australia and could not be used. I know my phone is a genuine article. Does this mean...

    Boat to Gili

    Fast boat Bangsal to Air cost 85000 in February. Think took 10 to 15 mins. I was told slow boats only leave when full and think they put you out on the beach. Horse and cart ripoff at 100000. (No Markit they don't swim across.)

    Retirement Visa from Australia to Bali

    @ dav733. Dave as soon as you cease working you are of an eligible age to apply for oz age pension. Go to your nearest centrelink office and complete the application, or apply by phone, or via the internet. You can earn $164 a fortnight without affecting your pension.

    Power of attorney / Will.

    I think any lawyer in Bali would do a new will for you. Not sure how you can use a power of attorney without physically showing the original. Any dealings with oz banks from Bali can be a hassle. Phone ids, answers to secret questions, etc. Good luck.

    Why startups fail in Indonesia

    Fred2. You would die of hunger and thirst trying to find chicken schnitzel and a beer for $10.50 in Perth Aust. RSL club cheapest meal was $12, 2 years ago and a small beer about $5. Meeting friends for pub lunch next Tuesday. Will post minimum costs then.
