    Oh really? I didn't realise it had gotten so much harder : (

    Yes I get what he meant. I was saying that I almost re-did my IELTS for more points but decided not to, and stayed at 75 and was invited really quickly to apply for a visa.

    For teaching it has to be academic. I got invited to apply for the visa really quickly with 75 points in 2016 - 1 day after my EOI was lodged.

    I think potentially if you have an address in Oz then you might be able to do it beforehand in NSW but I think that's a loophole....

    I couldn't register with NESA (NSW) until I was in Australia. This is their standard process. Although I'm told that other states do allow you to do this from outside Australia.

    Same for NSW teacher registration. Needed all documents certifying again once here in Australia!

    Why are you worried about that bit? You only need to have done 45 days of teaching to meet AITSL's requirements so you definitely meet that? If you want I'm happy to send you mine that was accepted?

    Needs to be on letterhead paper from your uni, state the name and duration of the course, what age you are qualified to teach, confirmation that you passed, as well as specifically stating the amount of days you did in the classroom and with what age range.

    Okay so they are very picky over the wording! Took me two attempts to get it right! Make sure they state the exact amount of days you did in your practice and in exactly what age group they were.

    Buying a car

    You've been wealth of information! Thank you! We have a hie car for the first week so that we can get around the different dealerships. Thanks again!

    Buying a car

    Hi, great point Marisa. We've already been out of the UK for 4.5 years living in Asia, so I sort of feel we've made the break away and are unlikely to go back anytime soon, but I totally get your point, and it's something to ponder on! Really we will be dictated to by what gets us a car quickest! We really want to be mobile asap! I have a feeling that second-hand could be quicker anyway.

    Buying a car

    Thanks, really appreciate that info. We are going to see what the finance comes back with. If it's a rubbish rate, we'll get a run around. We are quite lucky in that we get a house and utilities with my job, so cash flow won't be too tight. However, I don't want to pay over the odds for no reason!

    Buying a car

    Thanks - no they don't know our budget. They just know we are looking at a CRV. I have been looking around at costs of new and second hand CRVs so I will definitely not be taking their first price! Cheers

    Cheers. Honda have just actually come back and said they would do finance so long as I showed them my contract. They have a few nearly new for about 30k so we will try and haggle them a bit further down! Thanks again

    Buying a car

    Hello all, We arrive in Sydney on 18th December and have about 4 weeks of travelling before we make our way to where we'll be living in Central NSW. We really want to get a car the week we arrive. We could buy outright but I'd prefer to do a large deposit and then get car finance for rest. I was looking at SUVs a couple of years old at first but actually the prices of new models or showroom models are not that much more. I am not sure whether we'll be eligible for finance as new arrivals, but I will have my contract to show what my salary will be when I start work in January and would be looking at a 50% deposit. Does anybody think this is unrealistic? Any other advice or pointers would be appreciated. Our only experience of buying a car in Australia was 15 years ago as backpackers with only 1000AUD to spend! Thanks Kelly
