    @Alan Collett would be the man.

    Yes, the tax implications can be confusing and you may end up being out of pocket. There are also capital gains implications for both tax jurisdictions when and if you decide to sell. Not to mention the nigh impossibility of finding a lender that will remortgage if you're trying to do it whilst is Oz Plus the nightmare of trying to manage a rental from halfway around the world.

    Form 80 travel history

    Digital holiday pics will have timestamps. Emails of bookings/bank statements/social media posts.
  8. Hi Mate, I used to be an RMN, but I'm now a radiographer. However, I am helping a friend with their RMN 190 application. They did not need AHPRA registration in order to submit their 190 EOI. They however did have to provide proof of funds. Lmk if I can help.
  9. Not sure if you've already covered it, but how about health care for immigrants ie Medicare/private health insurance.
  10. No. Not sure if you're aware (feel free to correct me if not), but ANMAC and AHPRA are two completely separate entities. Not all the time, extensions can be granted. Depends on how much one values the Aussie dream. I did it. Spent about £3k by nipping over. The cost was high, but the value was priceless. The Qld 190 programme can be open and closed in less than 24hrs, due to high demand, so you need to be on the ball for when they open. Not really: you can present at your employer, who will then take over this.

    House prices going up??

    My ex landlord who's also a REA has said there has been a number of sight unseen purchases, mainly from interstate.

    Stamp Duty

    We just bought, and had to pay the full stamp duty rate as we previously owned property in the UK.

    Modular Homes

    We looked at them. The issue we found that some banks won’t lend for certain modular types. We went to see the showroom for Hoek homes. They looked ok, but the flimsiness put us off. If we had to build in the future, we would look at container type builds: https://www.containerbuildgroup.com.au/ However they would make sense on a sloping plot at you may not need the usual level of excavation and could use steel stumps. Let us know how you get on.

    I second this. We live in bayside too, and the villagey atmosphere is homely.

    Replacing gas water boiler

    Thanks for the reply mate. We're in bayside Brisbane. We've decided to got for a Bosch Freestanding induction oven and a Sanden heat pump hot water system.
  16. Hi peeps, So we're purchasing this property that currently has an on-demand gas boiler (with gas tanks), which also fuels the gas cooker. We want to get a solar system, and so we will be looking into an electric shower option as well as an induction oven. What options would you guys go for, if you were in our situation? Thanks.

    Stamp duty

    As Marissa said, brokers are not always the best option. One can only get the first home stamp duty benefit if one has never owned any property anywhere in the world. Evidently there may be some flexibility with the 20% deposit requirement - a colleague of mine advised they were able to purchase with less than the above because they worked in the medical field. IIRC, it was with Bank of Queensland.
  19. It's almost always the higher fees one. I've had a quick look, and the one for $289 that you're referring to, is for rads who have done an ASMIRT accredited diagnostic imaging course. At the time of writing, there's only one course that meets the criteria, and its the NZ course. It appears that the application form you need to complete may be this one: www.asmirt.org › 2338 › 2338PDF Web results OQAP assessment - Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy And the associated fee is $946 Migrating to Australia does not come cheap. We spent at least $30k just to land here. I feel that you may well benefit from an initial consultation with a migration agent.

    There are many registered migration agents on this forum, who are full of experience. Many of them would be prepared to offer a free initial consultation. This might be the way forward if you are unsure of your specific pathway. Good luck!

    Federal budget -190 visa

    Who knows mate. You'd hope that those who'd already submitted their application would still get through.

    Raising a Queenslander

    So we've seen a high-set house, with the ceiling height on the ground floor being only 2.1m (so not legal height). Has anyone raised and built underneath, and is willing to share their experiences? The alternative will be to build at the back, and knock down the old house. The only issue is the the block falls by 3m over 40m. Thanks.
