    Thanks, this is all really useful. I appreciate the honesty!

    All sounding pretty positive so far!

    Thanks for this. What has been said so far matches up with what I have read on other sites. Therefore I don't think I'll be going in with any unrealistic expectations. During the working week I am very busy in my job, so could be working anywhere in the world and I would know! However if at weekends and in the school holidays, if we have access to nice things to do within a decent drive, that will be fine initially. Cheers!

    Thanks both! I'll have a good link at the link that you sent too. I have the opportunity for a 'flash in the pan' visit in a few weeks so I might be able to get a good feel for it then. J

    Hello all, We might have the opportunity to move to Orange and I'm trying to find out the realities of living that far out from Sydney. We are not a city family, we like a weekend there occasionally but we are really looking for outdoor lifestyle, beautiful walks, access to good food - and seasons for my husband? It looks to me like Orange has enough facilities and services to make it not a problem to b 4 hours out from Sydney, but looking to hear from those who live/ have lived there. We are currently weighing up a few areas in NSW and VIC. Cheers! Jx

    Hello all Hoping for some help. I may have a job opportunity in the above area and I'm looking for some advice. I've read around a bit and can see that these areas are very much satellite towns with perhaps not much about them, but I'm interested in the realities of living there. It wouldn't be our 'forever home' just a stepping stone. Whilst access to the city occasionally will be nice, it's not our priority. Weekends we would want some coastal time or green areas for walking. I'm also wondering about local facilities - shopping, kids' parks, decent places to eat etc? Any help would be appreciated. Jx

    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    Thanks both for that information. I was debating coming over for a few weeks in October to start the process, as I'm on SE Asia so not too far, but if I am awaiting a call about an interview with NESA, it might come while I'm back here! Oh well. I'll just have to be efficient when I arrive in December. Cheers!

    Thanks. I did have one when I was on a working holiday visa 13 years ago! Would it be the same? Although I am married now so my name is different. Not sure if that affects it.
  9. Hello, Hoping somebody can help! We move to Sydney on our PR in December. I'm hoping to start teaching at the end of January so really want all my documentation in place. I know I can't get WWCC or NESA reg until I'm on the ground, which is fine. I have all my documents ready to have certified when we arrive etc. My first concern is proof of address. When we first arrive we'll be in airbnb, I'm not sure if I can register whilst not in actual in rented accommodation? Second is ID. For the WWCC I need to prove identity at NSW Services or RMS. There are two lists of ID, and you need an item from both. List 1 is fine but list 2 appears to be quite NSW specific (NSW driving license or medicare card etc) which I won't have at first. It does however also day a bank card, does anyone know if this can be a UK card? It seems to mainly be for proof of signature. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give. Kelly

  11. Hello! Welcome to Anna and great news laeveans! I am not sure about updating or staring a new EOI sorry! Would starting a new one put you further back on the waiting list or just send you straight to the top with your new improved points? I bet somebody on this forum will know! So close for you SNS! We have our visa activation trip to Sydney planned for August, can't wait! However I have taken my foot off the brakes a little in terms of the big move as I have just gone for a promotion that would add an extra year to my contract here in S.E.Asia. I doubt I'll get it to be honest but until I know either way I can't think about Oz just yet! If I don't get it, it would be this time next year for a move for us! : )
  12. Now that I'm looking for that thread, I can find more examples of threads where people don't recommend re-marks : ( I guess I came across one of the more ununusual cases. I wouldn't want you to waste money, what a pain it all is!
  13. I guess .5 is more likely to go up to the next figure : ( I will try and find that thread though in case more people have posted on it with their experiences!

    Handing in notice without Visa grant?

    Yes I know, the 'assessment in progress' status gets so boring! We still have the long game to play yet. I have another years contract in my current job, which will only finish July 2018. We are in S.E.Asia though so we can quite cheaply and easily get over for a visa activation holiday in August and then potentially revisit whilst looking for jobs. Can't really start looking for jobs until next year though so feeling a bit in limbo. Not as bad as the limbo you feel whilst waiting for the grant though, so I'm not complaining!

    Handing in notice without Visa grant?

    What are your points and occupation? Which processing centre is dealing with your application? I only ask because your dates are really similar to mine in terms of being asked for more info and uploading your medical etc. I have 65 points and under the Brisbane office. I uploaded final docs on 3/3 and got my grant on 20/3. It's a tricky predicament you're in. I don't know what advice to give, sounds like you are looking at the right kind of things by requesting rolling contact etc. I'll keep everything crossed for you!
