    Tax File Number?

    Hi there I am trying to get a Tax File Number for my new employer but I am still in the UK. I have tried to apply online but it says I must be in Australia first. Anyone else had any experience with this?Is it possible to get a number before I arrive? Many thanks, Sam

    How do we sort a house for when we arrive?

    Hi Cal That's great thanks. Its certainly seeming the most logical and sensible way to go about it. It's been really helpful coming on here! I'm just also a bit worried about the fact that only I will be working initially as we get our bearings and look at childcare options etc. Do you think it will go against us with rentals with only one income? My income is full time and will cover the rental costs but I'm worried that this could cause problems as I hear the rental market is quite competitive! Many thanks, Sam x

    How do we sort a house for when we arrive?

    Hi again wow thanks you make me feel a bit better! I have a job in Narre Warren South so am looking at the Mornington Peninsula to live. I have two little children under 4 which is why I’m really worried about not having proper accommodation lined up. I will check out the air bnb and see what else I can try and arrange. Any recommendations of good suburbs south east? Nice primary schools are essential to me! Cheers!

    How do we sort a house for when we arrive?

    Hi Thanks so much for the replies. Excitedbutterriied this name kind of sums up how I'm feeling at the moment! Wow, I really don't like the thought of having to sort a new house when we get there as I will be starting a new job and it will all be really stressful. Ideally I'd like a place lined up before we get there. It sounds as though this may not be possible though. Where would we send our removal crate to if we don't have a house lined up? Many thanks again, Sam

    Hi There Marisa Its nice to meet you. Thank you for your reply. I hadn’t thought yet about Geelong so will check it out thanks. Looking at the distances it seems a suburb like Rosebud to Melbourne and Geelong to Melbourne are similar distances ( approx 75 km). Is it just that Geelong is a more direct route? I’m a teacher with two little ones so looking for the best Primary Schools. Thanks, Sam

    Pass medical?

    Hi Guys My husband has glaucoma and various complex problems with one eye. He is not currently receiving medication or treatment and hasn't for some years. However, he can be in pain and can't see in that eye. I'm wondering would anyone know if this would present a problem with the medical for Visa application? Other than that he is fit and healthy and able to work. Many thanks for any advice, Sam

    The process - Expression of Interest

    Hi Thank you. My profession is primary school teacher which is not on the skilled list but the supplementary skilled list for certain states. I will have 80 points. This is harder as I don't know how I find out what their ceilings are and when they will cap the applications for their state. It's all a bit of a minefield. Best wishes Sammy

    The process - Expression of Interest

    Hi Thanks for reply. That's very useful. Would you know how soon after submitting you should get an invite and if I don't get one is that the end of the process? Regards Sammy Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  13. Hey guys Can someone please advise whether I can submit an EOI without a skills test. Is there somewhere on the EOI where you have to say that you have done the skills test and attach results etc. I am in the process of doing the skills test but wondered if I can go straight to EOI to save time and then do it later? Also is the purpose of the EOI to tell you if it is worth you applying for the actual VISA? Will they tell you at this point if you don't have a chance of getting one? Bit confused about the early order process. Many thanks for any advice, Sammy Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
