    Purchasing a car in Australia

    Hi everyone , we have just moved to New South Wales this weekend and we are looking at purchasing a used car and would like some help with how it works out here. Me and my partner are not insured on any vehicle, what are the rules on test driving ? Is it the car itself that is insured? if we decide to purchase a vehicle do we sort out the insurance before driving it home? Also is there any other things to sort out like in the UK? Car Tax for example. Thanks lucy

    Yes it’s singapore :) I’ve always emailed Malaysian airlines as that’s the cheapest to Sydney for me but they haven’t responded yet

    Migrant Luggage Airlines

    Thanks, I just emailed them and got this response if it helps anyone else. Please be informed that if you hold an unused/unstamped/not validated migrant visa that specifically states that you are permitted to remain in Australia indefinitely / permanently for flights departing from London/Manchester you will then be entitled to our migrant baggage allowance (i.e. 40 kilos per seat paying passenger). This baggage allowance will only be granted when you check in at the airport when this visa is sighted and checked that it has also not been travelled on before, this has to be the first time it is being used. You can have as many items of checked luggage as you wish provided: • The total combined weight of all the items put together does not exceed your total checked allowances • No single item of baggage exceeds 32 kilos in weight, as a health and safety requirement

    Migrant Luggage Airlines

    Thank you for your reply. Did you have to pay anything to open an account with ANZ? and are they a good bank to choose

    Shipping container

    Hi Everyone, I wonder If someone could give me some advise on where they got their containers shipped to? As it takes about 3 months I do not know exactly where I will be living at the time of delivery, so I was thinking maybe just getting it delivered to a storage company. Or do they contact you when the container has arrived at the port and where you would like it delivered? Thanks Lucy

    NSW Nominated 190 Visa - 2 years work and live in NSW

    That’s great, thanks for the info
  9. Hi Everyone, Would anyone be able to advise websites to search for short term rentals when first moving to Australia. Not looking for shared accommodation. Is it a case of just renting a holiday home as if you were going on holiday. Also what do most people do before looking for a more permanent rental? 1-2 months? Thanks Lucy
  10. Hi Everyone, So we have received our Visa Grant and need to make first entry by Feb 2020 to work and live for a minimum of 2 years in NSW before we can work/move anywhere else in Australia. Once the 2 years is up how do they know you have completed the required time? Do we need to register anything when we move there to prove this or do you need to apply for another Visa if you wanted to live/work anywhere else? Thanks Lucy

    Yes still waiting here too hate being stuck in limbo but what can you do! I see from a lot of other posts that after they have submitted medicals and police checks they were granted the visa within a week or 2..but I guess every case is different. Fingers crossed we hear something soon. We are now at around 5 1/2 months since lodging our visa.
