    Partner visa thread continuation........

    How exciting! Only a week to go, sounds like you're all organised though which must feel good. I know what you mean as I also feel calmer than I thought I would although there is still 3 1/2 months to go so plenty of time yet....:goofy: Keep us updated....... and good luck with the travelling :smile: (In our case I'm the hyperactive one, all my hubby will want to do is sleep!) x
  2. Just had a catch up on posts - great to see some visa grants! Congratulations @Uhtred @CannonHillChris @Ozzie -Enjoy celebrating and organising your moves! Good Luck to everyone else still waiting

    Partner visa thread continuation........

    Hi everyone, Well we've been really busy! We've booked out flights for 23rd June, yippee :jiggy: We've booked a months accommodation with airbnb at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast that will allow the dog, to get us started. There's 3 nights gap so we're going to use those days to chill, possibly on the Sunshine Coast. Now just focusing on working through the 800 lists I've written lol Going to the Pet Shop Boys on Sunday for a bit of down time, booked ages ago but great timing! It's very easy to get all consumed with Aus but we're not there yet and want to make the most of the time we have here. How's everyone else's plans going? @Uhtred I'm a Foot Health Professional here (like a chiropodist) but they don't recognise my qualification over there. I'm not too worried atm as I'm happy to have a change and can always retrain later on if I want. I've done lots of sales jobs so will probably target that although staying open minded and going to see what takes my fancy. My husband works for a commercial building company as a surveyor/estimator/project manager (he's the one that got the main visa) so will look for those types of roles. We'll start the ground work soon. Cara

    Yes we are! I don't know about the fair as don't really go into Littlehampton. We come from Worthing the other direction before we moved here. Where are you from then?

    Thanks Nikki, we are chuffed to bits! We live in Rustington which is a small town on the South East Coast in West Sussex. I assume you're from London?? Whereabouts? Yes what a good idea about the open house, we'll have to do that too when we get there!

    Just Googled Airlie beach and it's high up, hopefully we can arrange some sort of meet up at some point. We are also starting pretty much from scratch, just taking our new bed, bedside tables & belongings, buying the rest when we get there! I'm a Foot Health Professional here and they don't recognise my qualification over there so I'm going to have to choose a different career as I don't want to start studying again from scratch to be a podiatrist. I've worked in various sales type positions before so I think I'll go into that again to start with and see what happens.... Thanks for the book advice @Uhtred, if I can find time to read them! Well we just sale agreed our house full asking price yesterday - first day on the market!!! I think things are meant to be!! So exciting, so much to do....... :jiggy:

    Yes I can see why you'd like to be able to activate it on the holiday but I'm sure it'll all work out for you, plenty of time to get the visa and arrange to go before September. Good tip about the cv's. We haven't been North up the coast yet as didn't have time so can't wait to do more exploring when we get there! Ah good idea on the name - a lot more original than mine lol

    I know, it's an amazing feeling! :jiggy:It took a while to sink in - not sure it totally has! But I do feel a weight has been lifted. Like you say now it's on to figuring out the next steps and a new load of things to worry about lol although obviously much much better being able to move forward with it all. My brother in laws parents live in the Redlands so perhaps we can arrange a meet up. I'm sure it's lovely up there. We want to be by the sea ideally but prefer quieter so we like either south Gold Coast or maybe North of it like you. We'll see where we get work. Did you amend your cv's to suit the Aus job market or keep them the same? We need to start looking into all this soon.

    Thanks @jacquiandpaul I didn't forget you but was adding people who have visa's and might not see the link I hope you hear soon Laurence, I'm sure you'll get it in plenty of time to go Sept/Oct. Can I ask what Uhtred stands for?
