  1. What do people think is going to happen with offshore spouse visas with everything going on? Was hoping to move to oz around the end of the year but worried about the economy now. Likely they'll extend the 12 month entry period from approval date?

    Good time to move money from UK to Oz?

    Yes nearly $2 for every £1 you send over at the moment!
  3. Our accounts had the same submitted and received until we got our RFI last week then the applicant account had an additional button for confirming additional docs have been attached. Originally from brisbane but going to try Perth as we've 2 dogs and 3 kids and don't think they'd cope well in the heat in brisbane. We were there Xmas 2018 and we couldn't do anything outside the house during the day as the kids were miserable if it wasn't air conditioned or a swimming pool. Love Melbourne but don't want to pay a huge amount for a house. Brissie is great but the heat can be stifling if you're not a summer person.
  4. Does anyone know if the ID documents for the people that filled out the form 888 need to be certified if you're offshore and uploading docs online? Forms have already been witnessed
  5. Oh good point. Didn't even cross my mind. Fingers crossed that's it then!
  6. That's so strange. We had provided evidence for that period as well. Maybe they're trying to slow down the approvals or something.
  7. We got very similar yesterday asking for evidence for 2017-2018 even though we've been married since 2013. Writing a statement and uploading even more docs over the weekend. Hopefully it's processed quickly then! Applied 15 July I think it was.
  8. So exciting for everyone getting their visas! We submitted ours mid July and it just says received. Is that normal until they request other info or it's approved? How does everyone know which embassy their application has been assigned to? Worried I've missed some really obvious stuff!

    Immigration being rude .

    Yes I'd say from their perspective if you're willing to commit fraud to centrelink you probably wouldn't have a problem doing it with immigration.

    Shipping furniture IKEA

    Thanks everyone. I'd love to just leave everything behind and start again but then the thought of buying a whole house worth of stuff from scratch is also terrifying! I guess we'll just start with quotes and go from there. Thank you! @WayneMI'll be keeping an eye out for your shipping post update

    Shipping furniture IKEA

    Chest of drawers. They're all screwed together and we used wood glue as well so won't be able to flat pack.
  12. Hi all, Just making a list of furniture we will bring with us. We have 3 dressers and a change table that are all from IKEA. Husband says because they're ikea they probably won't ship well. Does anyone have any personal experience of shipping ikea stuff? They're not very old and I'm just thinking it'll make things easier if we have a few less things to buy. Obviously if they'll fall apart in transit it won't be worth bringing them. TIA

    Thanks for replies so far everyone. Would it be more beneficial for us to get Airbnbs or the like for 2 weeks NOR and 2 weeks SOR or would driving around be sufficient to get a feel for the areas do you think?

    Thanks for your help everybody! Will definitely be looking around before we decide on somewhere to rent and hopefully eventually buy. Cheers!
