    Morning everyone! Just a question...we lodged our visa on 04/02/16 and our friend lodged theirs one month later (same occupation) and there's have just been granted!! It was approved by the the Parramatta office but they are living in Melbourne. Does anyone know if the delay is due to the fact that we live in Sydney?? Thanks....the wait is killing me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi there, anyone have any idea what the processing times are like for 457 to 186 transition stream. Our MA hasn't really given a guideline, thanks (-: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sydney Socials 2014

    This weekend may be a bit of struggle for us but if you guys are organising this weekend, We'll try my best to make it. I don't mind the travel either, maybe the city is a central location for everyone?

    For anyone in Sydney, try the traditional Fish and Chip shop in Bondi Junction. Went again on Saturday and it's something else. Cod with real chips, mushy peas and curry sauce. It's awesome!

    Gotchas and criteria for house/flat hunting in Sydney?

    Hi there, You can specify most of the time 6 or 12 months lease. Some people offer to take it for 12 months to beat the competition! I've never broke a lease before to be honest but from memory when signing the lease for this apartment I remember her breaking down the fees. I don't have the info to hand...sorry

    Gotchas and criteria for house/flat hunting in Sydney?

    Hi there, We've lived in Sydney nearly 3 years and we're in our 3rd apartment, all of which has reserve cycle air con. Personally for us, we really use the air con on the days over 30 degrees and in this particular apartment used the heating setting through July/August this year as it was cold (nowhere near as cold as the UK so don't worry!). Renting - Landlord pays council tax and water. Elec/Gas are similar to what we paid in the UK. We shipped all of our furniture from the UK to here but all of our apartments have had dishwasher/tumble dryer installed. You will need the following for renting: proof of income from your employer history of rent/mortgage payment (even if in the UK/India an example of utility bills paid in the UK Real Estate and Domain are the best sites, we have found all our apartment on them. Hope this helps, Paula :-)

    Tax Refund

    Hi all, i wonder if anyone can help? I've heard off a few people that after your first year here, once you lodge a tax return that you're usually entitled to a refund? Is this correct? thanks in advance, Jay and Paula

    What is WRONG with me? Why can't I appreciate "VIVID!?"

    I totally agree! We went to vivid the other night and was totally underwhelmed! The way people were going on about it I expected something amazing but at the end of the day it was just lights on the opera house!!!
