    Driving in SA - License help???

    Can I transfer my Dubai DL to SA? Or I have to do the theory and practical driving tests, and Driving classes? Any idea how much does it cost?
  3. There is one on 15-Nov-2017 and I think the one in Dec is on 13 (please cross check the Dec date)

  5. Hi all, my query is about transferring money from Dubai to my NAB account. I hear that banks in Oz charge fees for money being transferred from overseas. If that is the case, is it better to use some online exchange / transfer website to transfer money without charges. Any information or tips in regards to transferring money from overseas into an Oz bank Account are welcome! Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Moving Tobacco and alcohol

    Also, for the 2.25 litres of alcohol allowance, one needs to carry it from duty free shops at departure / arrival Airport Only. You can’t carry the ones you have lying at home I guess. Correct me please if I am wrong. Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Moving Tobacco and alcohol

    Thanks for the information Evandale! However would you know if the vape juice with nicotine used in vapes (electronic cigarettes / e-sheesha) are considered tobacco products? Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  9. I was wondering the quantity of tobacco / cigarettes and alcohol I am allowed per person to carry with me when I move to Australia. Also, is there any provision to move such items by ship / cargo? My movers told me not to pack any such stuff. I am moving from Dubai. Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Things to do after landing

    Ok! It looks like the IDL won’t help much for the points, except to drive around without an Oz DL I guess. Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    You mean the 100 point system is to be able to rent properties. Thought that getting an Oz DL is one of them. On another note would an International Driving Licence help in the points? Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Is there also some PR card (like for Canada) that I need to get or is that the same as the social security card? Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    I have the PR visa, will be landing in Oz on 30th Oct. I had heard about the 100 point system that’s required for renting a place etc. My query was regarding this. Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Things to do after landing

    Good day to all, I was wondering if someone can guide me on things ‘to do’ after I land. Things which I require in order to settle down in Australia like the medical, PR card, Social Security, bank account, credit card, driving licence etc. Any advise on the being able to meet the points system is welcome!
