That makes more sense. We are going to sell our house here anyhow I reckon as I believe the extra money will help us with the initial move. I guess having a change of visa from last time I would have to apply for a new TFN etc. Not to sure how much information they keep as it's 4 years since last being there?
You keep the same TFN.

I would strongly advice you to take lovely WA's post with a truck load of salt. The economy in WA is in a very bad way and not looking like improving any time soon. It is also one of the few places that has made nurses redundant in recent times - the state government are broke after believing the mining boom would last forever and blowing its proceeds.
The redundancies were mainly voluntary and few shop floor clinical positions were lost. I know of 4 nurses who applied for the voluntary redundancy and didn't get it.
I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows
