    Do I need Aus Police checks for PR @7months in Oz

    Thanks guys I ended up doing it anyway for what it is worth. Joff, one guy at my work place who applied before me was so lucky coz his only took 2 months after he posted all the required docs.
  2. Hi guys Iam applying for Perm Res from 457, been in Oz 7months, do I need to apply for an Oz police check? I have already sent for UK police check and a colleague @work just told me that I need an Oz police check too. I thought a police check is only necessary if uve been in a country for 12months or longer?

  5. Hi everyone My family and I are moving to Townsville(TSV) early Feb and I cant describe the preparation stress that Iam going thru trying to get everything sorted. I am on a 457 sponsorship visa by Mater Hosp. I would appreciate advise from those who relocated to Townsville on the following issues: Flights from london to TSV: I got a reasonable price quotation from LHR-TSV via sydney or Brisbane with Quantas but apparently the domestic flight to Townsville is operated by Jetstar or some Quantas domestic flights which Iam worried may cause changes in baggage limit (different from Quantas international flights) which would strain my very tight budget. Has anyone been asked to pay extra on getting to TSV? Re: removals (Kent to Townsville): any advise on budget companies to use as I don't have a relocation package (got the job via agency)?:mad: I would be grateful for advise re: good places to live perhaps within commutable distance to hospital and schools as I have a teenage daughter I am sorry if the post is long, just shows how stressed Iam. Otherwise, merry christmas to you all.

    NHS boss refusing to write a reference

    Hi I had the same trouble at my work place. I had an autonomous job as an Occ Health Nurse in a pvt company and when I announced my going to Oz, management was suddenly saying that they do not give out refs coz its company policy. Only one manager luckily my line manager was willing to help. I then used the strategy above as a statement of service instead of reference and problem solved. If all fails, u r better off making a lateral transfer to a different ward or clinical area to build up ref potentials. Its sad but I think some people just enjoy to screw others up and to see you suffering the effects. Fighting it may be an uphill task coz I discovered that employers have no legal obligation to write a reference, if they don't want to, thats it.

  9. Hi every one I am new here and have a question, hope someone will kindly answer this. I have applied my 457 visa but noticed that my 14yr old child has not been asked to have a medical exam or xray even though she is of school going age whilst hubby and I have been asked to do so? Is this the norm coz read some where that kids of school going age need medicals too? Please help, I do not want to make errors of omission which can cause problems.
