the quest to acquire health care begins now. my situation is very unique and i had a very hilarious conversation with someone at medicare earlier today. i don't have all the required forms to prove my intent to be a resident. after the medicare employee spent quite a bit of time searching through her records, she figured out i need to write up a commonwealth statutory declaration and get it notarized. it basically boils down to me promising not to flee the country and to pay taxes in 2021. the medicare employee then told me i should get all my documents together and take them down to the services center. but the services center doesn't take appointments and after a person spends time standing in line in front of the services center, only then will they truly be an australian. i thanked her and told her i was looking forward to it.
