    Skillselect ENS 186 Timeline

    i was told by immigration the police Certs must be valid at time of application submitted not the time they look at it! Mine have expired since submission in October so I'm hoping this is not required, can I ask what country were the police Certs required for?

    When you submitted the application was your police check still valid? Mine has expired since submission of application in October but I was assured by immigration it must be valid at time of application only? I haven't left Oz since I arrived

    Jet lag...!!

    Hi we arrived January 11th and living on Sanctuary Lakes You'll get over the jetlag just give yourself time, we did a stopovert in Dubai so we actually felt ok after the first 24 hours. Good luck with where you choose to live. x
  5. We fly to Melbourne on January 6th and I left work yesterday morning............... It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do! I love my job and love my friends and colleagues and have been in tears since AND then my son finished school today and the children made a collage for him with photos and messages. All the kids came up to hug him and me, and tears were shed by all including his teacher! I have been so positive and organised about this move but have found it very difficult today with my wobbles which I know is to be expected but my god emotions really get you up and down!!!

    Where to live

    I am moving to Melbourne in January working as a midwife, when I researched areas the eastern side is more expensive for housing and rentals and made it less affordable. Compared to the west side which seems more reasonably priced with modern housing so less established but lots of building work going on and my husband works in the construction industry so should be easier to find work!

    moving to melbourne

    Send it to Darwin they process is super fast! Avoid Melbourne, Perth and Sydney and just go through everything to ensure you have it all there, documents must be notarised by a public notarty not a solicitor. Good Luck I fly Jan 6th will be working at Sunshine Hospital
