  1. That sounds exciting, hope it happens for you. But yes I suspect the minute your plane takes off the emails for more information etc will start to flow. Always the way! Good luck with your course.
  2. The tumbleweed was huge and fast moving. Oh this made me laugh. Been there. As you say it’s hard to see life through the eyes of others. In answer I moved with intention of staying forever. That continued for 10 years and then changed to how the hell can I get out of here. No rhyme or reason, just happened.

    Where to begin? Time to return home

    Yeah that file size for attachments still seems to be an issue. Well that’s another thing done though.

    Excellent. It becomes easier if you look at each step rather than the whole process all at once I found. I made a list of everything I needed to do both in Australia and the UK and then just steadily ticked them off. At one point I was adding more things than I was ticking off but then one day everything was done. No more to do. Quite cathartic!

    Hi, I found the tor thread on here, it’s not a pinned thread anymore so had to search, but the last entry on that was Feb and they got an instant acknowledgment.....they sent it to : nch.tor@hmrc.gov.uk Did you use this address? If not might be worth sending it. When I did mine the email they gave didn’t send a response but I used another email that had been mentioned on here and it worked. That and reducing my file size. Just some thoughts!

    Cost of moving to Oz

    The annual leave for allied health in Vic at least, is only 4 weeks as well. Nursing in public health is 5 weeks but 4 in the private sector. Or was when I was there. Just another thing to consider when used to the quite generous nhs leave. Flip side is the long service leave in Australia.

    Sorry to hear this has happened @Senfield. I completed the TOR over 2 years ago now and it was still being improved at that time, so hopefully it’s much better now! There is a pinned thread in the uk part of the forum about just this. Have a look, I found it really helpful. Unless it’s changed you need to do very low resolution attachments as the file size is tiny. You should get an instant reply that it has been received otherwise it meant they hadn’t got it. I did a generic list, like shoes and clothes, kitchen utensils etc, not a detailed list and I ended up taking much less than was on the list. I used a large movecube so can’t help with container companies. Others have travelled more recently so will hopefully be along to offer up to date advice. Good luck with your move and I’m sure your family will be thrilled to have you home. It’s not all bad here, very autumnal at the moment!
  9. Thanks. Paul has said this above but think op is mixing the two up and getting the process out of order.
  10. Ooh sounds rude now I’ve read it again! should say paul is an adorable mara agent!
  11. No. I’m an adorable nurse. ETA: paul is not.
  12. Cheeky! Up to a point it’s free! His website is suncoast migration. It’s in his signature below his post.
  13. @paulhand ???? paul gives a lot of free advice on here which I think counts for a lot. Good luck with your application, keep us updated.
  14. That’s my motivated radiographer! C’mon visa!
  15. Ok. Seriously pick up the phone to paul. You can’t afford errors here. I understand the desperation to escape. Have done it in both directions now! You are in danger of missing your window of opportunity and that will be that.
