    <p><p>Hi Jaffas1,</p></p>

    <p><p>I was wondering if you can help me get some answers, I read your question to the user "inception" about visa refusal, so I thought you could have some idea on this topic</p></p>

    <p><p>Can you please tell me whether previous student visa refusal to UK on financial ground and another student visa refusal to Latvia (interviewer somehow got bad impression from the refusal from the uk and was not satisfied with the level of english) would affect my application of 189 GSM visa? </p></p>

    <p><p>I very much look forward to your reply,</p></p>

    <p><p>Thank you</p></p>

    1. Where to go???

      Hi ozbaggies, my OH just got offered a post this week actually, which we had been told is very unusual if you are offshore. We found that calling up the local councils when you have a firm emigration date helps, and also applying for jobs within a few months of when you fly out. It might be worth speaking to planned resources, they are an agency specifically for planners. They seemed to be the most helpful, although the job my OH applied for was directly with the council.
    2. Nelson Bay

      Our friends live in Nelson bay and we visited them there in April. I agree it is touristy but still a lovely place to live. They really like it there. In terms of food and drink - I'm not sure about what the weekly shop is like, but going out for a meal was pricey. Saying that it was still not as expensive as in Sydney.
    3. Where to go???

      My OH is an urban planner, and we are moving to Melbourne. The main sticking point is that most local authorities want local planning experience, so chances are you will need to do a few short term contracts initially before getting a permanent post. Also they prefer you to be within a few weeks of arriving or in the country before you can apply for jobs. The best thing is to keep an eye out for jobs on SEEK. Also sign up with a recruitment agent, and make sure you send them regular emails so they don't forget about you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    4. Is my 175 Visa nearly there???

      Congratulations!:biggrin: Good luck with your move and keep us all updated on PIO.
    5. Is my 175 Visa nearly there???

      It might be worth emailing your case officer to give them a bit of a friendly push. We got our case officer in March and had our 175 visa pre- grant less than 2 weeks after submitting additional info . Our agent emailed the case officer and we had a grant in days.

    6. Singapore Airlines

      I agree the transit hotel is a great idea. The link for booking and prices is http://www.harilelahospitality.com/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    7. Reccie or not?

      Definitely do a reccie if you can. It gave us a better idea as to where we want to live and helped us make contacts for jobs. Also, we got to visit other states and did loads of sightseeing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    8. Migration agent fees

      I think we paid about £1800 in 3 instalments. Although it seems most people with straightforward applications send off applications without an agent. In hindsight we could have saved the money, but it gave us peace of mind knowing he was checking things over and giving us advice.
    9. Uk iPhone (3GS) in oz? Do they work?

      Yes you can, just make sure it's unlocked so you can use it with any network. We bought sim cards for our iPhones on our reccie trip and they worked fine.
    10. Aphra ID check.

      That did not apply to me only 5 weeks ago. Anyway , I took my ACRO police check certificate from the UK, which I needed for my PR visa along, maybe that was adequate. I would email your AHPRA case officer to clarify if they need this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    11. Aphra ID check.

      Hi whoiam, I got it on the same day, whilst I was on a visitors visa. The officer I met had already prepared my registration documents, and as he was looking through my visitor visa confirmation etc, he handed it over to me. The registration only lasts until September and you will need to pay annual renewal fees then. I took my passport, the email confirming my visitor visa had been granted, my marriage certificate as I changed my name after marriage, my latest GMC annual retention letter , drivers licence and a tax office notification with my address on it. They did not check it all, but worth taking more than you need just in case. Counting down the weeks now, we fly out to Melbourne on 10th of July and I start work in August. I keep flitting between excitement and being nervous. Do pm me sometime, it would be good to catch up. How are things going with you and when are you due to start work?
