  1. Hi all, Since my 189 was granted, I’ve subsequently received a new passport which now has my married name. I can’t seem to be able to update my passport number on my immi account - am I correct in thinking that this means that I need to fill out and submit form 926? Thank you!

    Meet up in Melbourne end of March?

    Have fun on your reccie and hopefully it's helpful! We have been here coming up to two months and are based in South Yarra, but work in Docklands. Happy to meet up and answer any questions re the logistics of moving etc as it's still pretty fresh in our minds haha. I'm 27 and my husband is 35, we are both accountants - feel free to message me if you're keen

    Flying out tomorrow!

    Hi all, I don't post too often as I'm definitely more of a lurker, but I thought I'd post a little update here since I personally really enjoyed reading these kinds of posts from other members when I was in the process of applying for my visa! After planning a move to Australia for a number of years, my husband and I are flying out tomorrow morning to Melbourne and we're buzzing! It's all been a bit mental the past month or so as we have not only packed up our flat and rented it out, but we've left Guernsey (where we were based) to head to England for a week and squeezed in our wedding which took place on Saturday 21 January I can safely say that planning a move to the other side of the world, along with a wedding and interviewing for jobs, is pretty hectic but everything seems to have turned out well so far!! We arrive in Melbourne on Wednesday night local time and as my husband (it still feels weird to type that!) relocated with work, we're being picked up from the airport and put up in a serviced apartment for 3 weeks. I received a job offer last Monday and we will both be working in the CBD, starting on 6 February so that gives us a little bit of time to hopefully sort out the essential bits and pieces. We haven't secured a rental yet and we're hoping to be based in either South Yarra or Prahran. Fingers crossed there'll be something nice around as our stuff is due to arrive at the end of the month/early February! Anyway, I'll post an arrival report once we've settled in a bit etc! I just wanted to share the news as well as say thanks to the members of this forum who have helped us along the way. xx
  4. Exploring the city and making new memories excited to meet new people too! It's my partners birthday on 10 February so I've planned a special day for him - looking forward to that too!

    Harry Potter Warner Bros studio tour.

    Yes, been a few times! Probably not a whole day out unless you're mega into it and reading everything, but can easily do 2-3 hours there
  10. Hi all, My fiancé and I will be moving to Melbourne at the end of January 2017, we fly out a couple of days after the wedding! He is transferring with work and therefore has a job lined up, I am currently waiting to see if anything comes up with my work or just taking a gamble and looking once we have landed He will be working in Docklands. We have previously stayed in South Yarra and loved it there, but his colleagues recommended looking into Port Melbourne, which we have never been to. If anyone would like to share their opinions/experiences of these two places, or indeed recommend anywhere else for us to consider, that would be great! By way of background, we are a youngish couple (under 35) with no kids or pets. We are sporty and looking for somewhere with good amenities, a short commute and a decent social scene. Our budget is circa $600 per week. Many thanks!

    Reassurance anyone??

    Good luck with your move! I've moved internationally a number of times as a minor, but this is the first time I'm doing it myself (well, with my boyfriend too) and I do admire my parents for how they handled it haha. We are not leaving as soon as you are, in fact we are only at the stage of weighing up job offers, but I imagine that once my boyfriend accepts one it will be all systems go. I hope things all work out smoothly for you
