    Uk school leaver

    Hi and thanks for your reply, He may well be 17+ but not sure if he will go on to college, depends if he can get an apprenticeship before we emigrate. He has Australian citizenship by descent. May have to look at TAFE. We will be looking in the southern regions of Perth (Mandurah, Halls Head etc...as have family there.)

    Uk school leaver

    Hello all, I would like some advice please. My son will finish secondary school in the UK in summer time 2020. If we make the move to Australia once he has left, will he be able to find work straight away once we arrive in Australia? He will not be going to College in the UK. He wants to be an electrician so not sure what is required for him to do this in Australia? Thanks in advance. Xx

    Selling UK home to buy in Australia

    Thanks for all the replies. Much appreciated. Xx
  4. Hello, My husband has just raised a question so i thought i would put it on here as there is such a lot of posts on here with regards to a RRV! And possibly a lot of confusion. He said if he got a 1 year RRV but for whatever reason we wouldnt be able to make the move within that year, but he made a trip for a couple of weeks, does that mean he would have to apply again and would only get another 1 year RRV? He said sometimes life takes unexpected turns that are out of anyones control so he is curious as to what would happen. Thanks in advance.

    Selling UK home to buy in Australia

    Thanks Ken. So with no job to start on arrival in Australia my husband wouldnt get job seekers allowanace whilst looking for work? Have things changed because im sure he got it when we last lived in Australia as he got permananet residency straight away on his 309/100 partner visa. As soon as he found work it stopped. Im an Australian Citizen so i got it too until i found work, which thankfully didnt take long.

  9. Hi Nadine1, did you manage to get it by Christmas in the end? Good luck with everything.

    His first one was granted in 2011. Its quite nerve racking to go through this all again as i remember first time round its a very lengthy process.
  11. Hello, Can anyone advise please? If one sells a property the UK and transfers the money into an Australian bank account (which we have), to buy a property in Australia, would the lump sum be taxed? We are really not in favour of renting as want to own our first property in Australia when we move back. We hope to find jobs as quickly as possible but would we be expected to live off the money from the sale of our UK home? We have no savings. My husband would come over on a Partner Visa so i know he is entitled to Medicare etc....but cant remember about Centrelink whilst looking for employment? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you in advance.
  12. Hello to you all, As you may see from my recent posts about the RRV (some information quite confusing!) for my husband, I am just wondering if it might be easier for him to apply for another partner visa, but my question is: Does anyone know if there have been many changes to this visa in recent years as his first one (travel facility ) has now expired. He done the application himself and was straight forward and granted, no problems. Also wondering if he stands a good change of being granted one second time? We are still happily married and still have strong ties with my family in Australia. Any info greatly appreciated, thank you.

    I've contacted Agents on here and some do not even reply, so how can that help anyone going forward?

    1 year V 5 year RRV 155

    He had a Partner Visa which had 5 years on it. But we came back to live in UK before the 5 years on it was up.
