    190 Visa - Victoria

    Can i ask where you get this data from?... You are applying for sponsorship for a role that is pro-rata. Now the pro-rata only applies to the 189 (and the old 489 so maybe also the newer 491) but at present pro-rata 189's are only going through for this job code at 95+ points. So I can check points for calls for 491 for social worker at present? Thanks.

    Seeking areas in Queensland

    Thanks Cal, I am a social worker, my husband is a mechanical engineer and also a gas fitter. He currently works as a service manager (engineering) overseas. My husband is keen on Queensland but is also used to very hot temps so will be easier for him. Its been a dream for us since 2006 and i am almost over the age limit so this is our year!! I have been delayed by failing ielts by half a point and PTE by similar. Totally frustrating having to take when I have a degree. Its lovely to hear that you have settled, neighbours have moved and initially rented their house out, it has now sold so guess their staying too. My husband is currently looking for a role to transfer over too. Ideally I would prefer to move with a job offer. Maria x

    Seeking areas in Queensland

    We are in the process for state nomination visa. We also have the option of NSW and a few others. My husband works in hot temps overseas so second nature for him, I would have to adapt as so used to wet cold days in UK. Yes i guessed we would need a pen, which having been to oz and seen the beautiful wildlife i totally agree. Its nice to see you on here as i remember you were great with information last time we were thinking about moving. Maria

    Moving to Hervey Bay

    The first place we stayed over in the motorhome as we travelled the east coast from brisbane. (Aug 2016) It was also the whale festival. Amazing memories. We watched the sunrise on the first morning, lovely place. We are moving to Queensland but yet to secure an actual area (visa state nomination).

    Seeking areas in Queensland

    We are seeking areas in Queensland for a family of 2 kids and 3 children who will be 2 teens and just under 10 when we move. Schools/colleges are important. We visited OZ and travelled from Brisbane up the East coast in 2016 but was in holiday mode. We loved Hervey bay and Byron Bay. We had a short stay in Mackay too but again in holiday mode. Any areas to avoid? Best schools/colleges? Also we will have our cavalier king charles and cat. Heard different stories on cats in Oz be interesting to find out more. I understand we would need an outdoor pen? Thanks in advance
