  • Talk to Al Jazeera - Peter Dutton: Behind Australia's tough border policies

    The small pacific island nations of Papua New Guinea and Nauru host what many call Australia's offshore prisons for refugees. Labelled "regional processing centres" by the Australian government, bilateral arrangements enable Australia's government to maintain power and control, but assume less responsibility for the refugees who are forced to live there. These offshore detention centres are home to around 1,500 asylum seekers who were taken into custody after entering Australian waters without visas. Many of them have been stuck there in limbo for more than three years. Both centres are run under secrecy, off-limits to the media and to NGOs like Amnesty International. So what's going on inside? Are these prisons Australia's Guantanamo Bay? Or a necessary deterrent, which helps to sav...

  • Offshore and off limits: Australia's refugee centres - The Listening Post (Feature)

    For four years now, Australia has been sending a message out to the world: "If you come to Australia illegally by boat, there is no way you will make Australia home." The refugees who cannot be turned or towed back are taken into custody. Since the so-called processing centres on the islands of Manus and Nauru opened in 2012, nearly 2,000 people have been held there and only 60 have made it out. In those four years, not a single journalist has made it in. Australia's offshore 'processing centres' for asylum seekers are shrouded in secrecy and are completely off limits to the media. Permission to visit the island centres is almost non-existent - some journalists have even reported being chased away at gunpoint after arriving in Papua New Guinea. Journalists rely on news that has trickle...

  • Should we have an immigration system like Australia?

    Michael Gove promised again today to introduce an Australian-style points system to control immigration numbers if he becomes Prime Minister. But is Australia really the best place on which to model an immigration policy? Immigration has become a key issue in this weekend's general election. And its treatment of asylum seekers arriving by boat has been heavily criticised - not least by the UN secretary general. Those arriving by boat are sent to offshore detention facilities on the tiny republic of Nauru - nearly 2000 miles from Australia - and Manus, an island off the coast of Papua New Guinea. On arrival they face indefinite detention with no hope of ever reaching Australia. Conditions have been described by doctors and lawyers as tantamount to torture.

On Site: 1.One has to give importance to client process but not company policies 2.If the Client Company is from offshore (India) and as an H1B consultant you may land up in conflict between offshore company policies and US client policies. Hence one must be well equipped to handle both (off shore company policies and US client policies). Solution is: Try to have a conference call and bring all of them on to it and make sure both parties either agree to disagree or disagree to agree and follow up on emails. Thumb rule of WORK in USA is 8 hours a day and 40 hrs a week 160hrs a month 4.If supervisor ask you to stay late and work with out client permission or hours paid off, as per local labor laws you can immediately complain about it to respective authorities 5.At least once in a week, one can opt for work from home, but people call this as “work for home” :). This is not a BOOK RULE but it depends upon nature of work. 6.If weather is bad and nature of job is not production or non critical then also can opt to work from home. 7.100% of the projects to be at onsites, hence you can work only 8 hours and no one pressurize if work is not completed by COB(closing of business hours). 8.If you have already worked offshore, it should relatively be the same to work onsite. (in terms of technical aspects). 9.We may work Monday to Friday. Saturday and Sunday is a holiday and probably 11 unpaid holidays in every year US calendar. 10.Based upon nature of job and manager’s approval one can accumulate lots of comp offs and avail it. 11.Vacation means Vacation here at on sites and no one will disturb you. 12.Over Time: This is where many H1Bs have issues in USA and very few Indian consulting Incs release over time money to consultants and cannot help it. Over Time means: It need not be approved by end client and it must be paid by Prime vendor irrespective of Client paid to him or not. 13.Travel: As per business rules, Layer 1 to employer is a client. So apart from his office address, where ever you go, it must come under the travel expenses. The second part of the article details on how different the reality is and Mr. Sreenivas shared his own experiences. The second part will be posted later this week. I would sincerely thank Mr. Sreenivas Kumar Pandruvada for the efforts he put in to write this guest post. He is a also writing a book on H1B Journey to the USA.

Permission to visit the island centres is almost non-existent - some journalists have even reported being chased away at gunpoint after arriving in Papua New Guinea. Journalists rely on news that has trickled out of the camps for information. But penalties for the whistleblowers feeding stories to journalists are stiff, reinforcing the media blackout shrouding the asylum centres and the maccabre stories about treatment of refugees within. The Australian Federal Police have been known to spend hours researching, intimidating and harassing journalists who have worked with whistleblowers in order to reveal their sources. Under the new Australian Border Force Act, the consequences have reached further heights with jail terms being handed out to offending journalists. But journalists are still trying to tell Australia's refugee policy story and people on the inside are still blowing the whistle. Talking us through the story are: Mark Davis, investigative reporter; Paul Farrell, reporter for The Guardian Australia; Paul Murphy, CEO Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance; and Madeline Gleeson, refugee lawyer and author of Offshore: Behind the wire on Manus and Nauru.

They can wait in the detention facilities to be processed for up to years, deprived of many basic human rights, including the right to engage in work and education, social and personal security, privacy, welfare, physical and mental health, freedom from cruel treatment, housing and privacy, and freedom of movement. Every year, approximately 1 million people seek asylum internationally for many reasons including: fleeing from violence, religious, political, and ethnic conflicts [1]. Seeking asylum is a basic human right under the UN Refugee Convention. It is not illegal for someone to seek asylum. We are advocating for policy change of the Migration Act 1958 (Commonwealth) stating that asylum seekers who arrive on the mainland without a valid visa must be held in immigration or community detention, or transferred to an offshore processing facility. We are advocating for: 1. Transfer of asylum seekers from offshore processing facilities to appropriate onshore facilities while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. 2. Implementation of apprenticeship/vocational programs for asylum seekers awaiting resettlement while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. It is anticipated that implementation of the above strategies would result in greater quality of life for these asylum seekers given evidence supporting onshore processing measures and the provision of employment and training incentives for improved health outcomes for this population group. The transfer from offshore processing facilities is also likely to yield significant cost savings when considering the significant expenditure required for establishing and maintaining facilities for asylum seekers and staff ($316.9 million annually) [2]. We acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities does not fix the issues faced by asylum seekers entirely. However this change will mean the Australian Government will be taking responsibility for the individuals and upholding their human rights. Onshore processing will ensure housing and facilities for asylum seekers reflects the occupational health and safety standards of Australia. And the introduction of an apprenticeship mentoring program will allow for opportunity to engage in meaningful activities, increases in skill acquisition, and an increase in employability once they are processed. This is particularly important as most asylum seekers are processed as refugees: at May 31st, 2016, 77% of Nauru Island and 98% of Papua New Guinea asylum seekers had refugee claims approved [3]. We also acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities and provision of a more supportive physical environment will support the mental health of this population group, where currently those in offshore processing facilities feel unsafe, and a sense of hopelessness. The transfer will allow for improved safety and freedom of violence as the Australian Government will be liable to take responsibility for upholding their human rights within the onshore facilities, as they currently are not in offshore facilities. As global citizens it is our responsibility to support the human rights of all other people, locally and internationally. Let's support those who are fleeing from violence and death in their own countries, and advocate for their rights to be met. References: [1] Asylum-Seekers. (2016). UNHCR.

We first set up our home on the Island in 1991 and today RL360° is one of the fastest growing international life companies. DAVID KNEESHAW, RL360° CHIEF EXECUTIVE: We have offices around the world in Asia, Africa and Middle East - that allows us to build closer relationships with our stakeholders, customers and advisers. DENZIL WILLIAMS, RL360° DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS: Customer service is vital. We have customers in around 170 different countries and being remote from us they have to have confidence that we are looking after them at all times. NARRATOR: RL360° is proud to call the Isle of Man our permanent home. The Island enjoys OECD white list status and an AA1 sovereign rating from Moody’s, and has been praised by the IMF as a well-regulated financial centre of excellence. Not only that, but investments into Isle of Man life companies are protected by law, guaranteeing investors will get back 90% of the value of their policy in the unlikely event of a life company being unable to meet its liabilities. DAVID KNEESHAW: The Isle of Man is the world’s oldest continuous democracy and one of the benefits of being a crown dependency and the history of the Island and its proximity to the United Kingdom is that it has very strong consumer protection laws which in today’s environment is extremely important. NARRATOR: The Isle of Man’s stability, financial strength and continuous growth means we can offer clients from around the world the best possible security and a wider choice of investment options. DAVID KNEESHAW: RL360° is backed by FCA regulated shareholders in London. The ownership structure makes us a more focused business - a more dynamic business and a more committed business to the sector in which we want to operate. DENZIL WILLIAMS: We are very lucky in the Isle of Man in that because we are a specialist centre for financial services, there are a great number of people with the relevant kind of expertise and experience. NARRATOR: Our 300 dedicated staff take care of 60,000 policy holders in across the world, managing funds worth over $10 billion. But for us, success isn’t just about numbers, it’s about our deep commitment to our existing clients. DENZIL WILLIAMS: We understand all of our customers have their own financial objectives and that their relationship with us is very important to them and we treat it with the same degree of importance. DAVID KNEESHAW: Trust is an important part of any offering in financial services, when customers come to a company such as RL360° they’re really looking for a safe haven for their money. NARRATOR: We are constantly consulting with independent financial advisers and listen to our policyholders’ needs. We’ve even designed portable policies, so you can enjoy our continued care and investment benefits if you move to a different country. DAVID KNEESHAW: RL360° has a very clearly defined future, we want to continue with our organic growth by being good at what we do. To look for new areas to do business outside of where we have been before so we are in the process of opening regulated offices in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and Latin America. DENZIL WILLIAMS: RL360° is probably the most innovative company in our marketplace. We put a lot of time, energy and investment into our technology. The app is a great example of our innovation. DAVID KNEESHAW: What you’re trying to achieve in the business is a sense of balance but the key is to say let’s concentrate on being a good business - good products good service good relationships and if we keep doing that then we are more likely to have a good future. RL360°. Count on us.

Michael Gove promised again today to introduce an Australian-style points system to control immigration numbers if he becomes Prime Minister. But is Australia really the best place on which to model an immigration policy? Immigration has become a key issue in this weekend's general election. And its treatment of asylum seekers arriving by boat has been heavily criticised - not least by the UN secretary general. Those arriving by boat are sent to offshore detention facilities on the tiny republic of Nauru - nearly 2000 miles from Australia - and Manus, an island off the coast of Papua New Guinea. On arrival they face indefinite detention with no hope of ever reaching Australia. Conditions have been described by doctors and lawyers as tantamount to torture.

http://www.nomadcapitalist.com/offshore-banking/ Offshore banking isn't always as simple as opening an account at any foreign bank. In fact, many banks overseas offer terrible customer service and a lack of stability. However, one bank stands out as the absolute worst around the world: HSBC. Blogs will tell you that HSBC Premier is an easy way to move money around the world. Don't believe it. HSBC US is just as incompetent as HSBC Hong Kong. Global View doesn't work as promised. Premier benefits aren't offered in other countries, regardless of what is promised. If you love endless bureaucracy, employees who don't know their own policies, hours waiting on hold, and being made an unpaid employee of your bank, then HSBC is for you. For the rest of us, avoid HSBC. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom. Andrew started Nomad Capitalist to help people like you follow his five magic words: "go where you're treated best". He has personally started foreign companies, opened offshore bank accounts, and obtained multiple second passports. He also learned the hard way that perpetual information seeking is often the biggest barrier to getting the results you want. Many entrepreneurs spend months and even years constantly researching how to pay less in tax or live overseas, but are afraid to make the jump. As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve. Nomad Capitalist's Youtube channel is based on Andrew's vision that focusing on the end result, rather than the latest shiny object, is the best way to actually obtain the benefits of the Nomad Capitalist lifestyle.

http://www.theforexnittygritty.com/forex/forex-offshore-profits Forex Offshore Profits By www.TheForexNittyGritty.com There are times when moving money offshore is profitable. This may be because return on investment is better offshore and it may be because the value of the offshore currency goes up after you move your money. Forex offshore profits can occur in either case. One example was the Yen carry trade a few years ago and another is the recurring volatility of the Colombian peso versus the US dollar. Garnering Forex offshore profits requires that you pay attention to both Forex fundamentals and Forex technical strategies. Yen Carry Trade For years interest rates in Japan were very low and interest rates in the USA were substantially higher. It was a common practice for a Forex trader to borrow money, YEN, at a low interest rate back home and then convert the YEN to dollars. He would then buy a bond in the USA with the money. The profit would be the difference between the rate of interest on the loan which was virtually zero and the rate of interest on the bond which some years back would have been four to five percent on a treasury note. This route to Forex offshore profits worked so long as the value of the US dollar did not fall substantially against the YEN. If the dollar went up in value versus the YEN it simply increased the Forex offshore profits in this case. The Colombian Peso Over the last several years the Colombian peso has varied from ten percent to twenty-five percent versus the US dollar. Swing trading the US dollar against the Colombian peso could have resulted in profits of as much as twenty-five percent in a given year. As noted in the CIA World Fact Book, Colombia's consistently sound economic policies and aggressive promotion of free trade agreements in recent years have bolstered its ability to weather external shocks. Real GDP has grown more than 4% per year for the past three years, continuing almost a decade of strong economic performance. All three major ratings agencies have upgraded Colombia's government debt to investment grade. Nevertheless, Colombia depends heavily on energy and mining exports, making it vulnerable to a drop in commodity prices. Colombia is the world's fourth largest coal exporter and Latin America’s fourth largest oil producer. To a large degree the value of the peso goes up and down with commodity prices so that a guide to Forex offshore profits with trading the peso is to keep a close eye on oil, coal, etc. Long Term Offshore Investment and Forex Offshore Profits An alternative to trading currencies to gain Forex offshore profits is to look for promising investment opportunities in growing economies. Then you can get into investments cheap when a currency is cheap and reap profits locally from the investment and also from an improved exchange rate if you choose to repatriate profits back to your home currency. http://youtu.be/NT8HMRJ9hbg
