    Brisbane bound in November!!!

    Thank you both for your replies & advice! Sorry for the lateness in my reply the past few weeks have been extremely busy with finishing work, settling up etc! Only 13 days left now until we leave the UK...very exciting but scary times!! PatW that would be lovely...thank you so much for the offer ill be sure to PM you once we arrive. Do you have many families attend your get togethers?? Whata great thing to do! We don't have any rental at the minute, we have just organised a holiday let for our first 6 weeks so hoping to get something during that time. Thank you again for your help

    Brisbane bound in November!!!

    Hi guys! After what feels like the longest most stressful year of our lives. Myself (Elaine) my husband (Paul) and our 3 year old daughter (Mirrin) have finally booked our flights to make the big move in November on a PR 189 visa. We are relocating to North Lakes, due to the location of my job, from Scotland. Wondering if there are any other families in the same position as ourselves, or who have made the move! Would love to hear from you and any hear tips that you can offer for us in our first months in Australia!! :smile:

    189...agent or do it ourselves??

    Thanks guys! We have been quite methodical in our reading on the immi website & thought it seems managable on our own just needed to hear it from others! I am physio so already been through the whole skills assessment & AHPRA registration so have alot of the relevant documents already certified which should make the process a bit less time consuming. Don't anticipate any issues with police or health checks. The final thing will be passing IELTS. Looks like we will be submitting an expression of interest soon then!! Thanks for all your help!
  8. Hi...me, my husband & our 2 year old daughter are planning on moving to Brisbane in 2015. We had initially looked into migration agents to assist with our 189 visa application however, we are now wondering if we could do this ourselves (to help save some cash for the big move!). Wondering if anyone is willing to share their experiences of applying themselves without an agent & how you found the whole process?? Thanks x
  9. Hi, I am currently applying for registration as a physiotherapist with AHPRA. The application states that if an applicants qualifications were obtained more than 5 years ago they are required to provide documented evidence that they have practiced physio within those 5 years. Can anyone help with what actual documented evidence they require?? Many thanks for any help at all!!

Thanks guys
  12. Hey! My husband & I along with our 2 year old daughter are due to fly out to Brisbane in Aug this year. I will be starting work in Sept. We have given ourselves a 4-6 week window to find a long term rental however, during this time we will be needing to rent a holiday home/apartment/motel...does anyone know of any around the sunshine coast area that are good value for money?? Thanks everyone
