    Moving from Vic to WA

    I’ve heard Fremantle isn’t the nicest and is full of drunks/druggies. We’re moving from Melbourne CBD and have our fair share of that here so looking for more family orientated area? (Reviews on homely re freo)

    Moving from Vic to WA

    We’re moving from Melbourne to WA when allowed and I’ve secured a job in the CBD, so has my partner. were originally from the Uk and want to live close to the beach (15/20 min walk) but also relatively close to the CBD via public transport (max 45 mins) what suburbs would be best to look at for a 2+ bed house with yard for around 750 a week? thanks
  3. Thanks everybody much appreciated. deffo think I’ll do the list idea, Shame we can’t visit either at the moment to test drive them
  4. We’ve been in Melbourne since may last year and have never really settled here. With the current restrictions and us never really taking advantage of what Melbourne is known for, we’re weighing up our options to move. on our radar is either Adelaide or Sunshine Coast, I have 2 job opportunities through sponsorship which will lead to PR (regional) which is another driving factor as in Melbourne on my visa there is no pathway to PR. when moving here we’d never visited and chose melb over Sydney. Again, we’ve never been to Adelaide or SC so unsure which to choose. our most important boxes to tick are: nice 2+bed house (with pool would be bonus) for around 750 a week, better weather than melb, close to nice beaches, decent places to dine out etc, community to make friends ideally. has anyone made the moves and if so pros and coms? Anyone’s comments and thoughts would be greatly appreciated! thanks

    482 TSS, can I get another one?

    I appreciate that, it was more around for arguments sake if there wasn’t that much unemployment I could essentially reapply. Like there isn’t a onetime only deal with it
  6. Hi I’m currently on my 482tss visa and am concerned about being made redundant from work and subsequently not being able to find a new sponsor in 60 days due to covid19 pandemic. if I was to return to the uk can I apply again for another 482tss visa In say 12 months or can I only hold one (2x2years) in my lifetime? thanks
  7. Hi I'm currently in Melbourne in a 482tss visa, I was planning on returning to the UK for a week in April for my brothers wedding and wondered if anyone knows of re-entry restrictions on a tss visa with the covid-19 pandemic at the moment? the gov travel advice website only states that China Korea Iran & Italy are on the list where by you need to be out of the above countries for more than 14 days prior to entry to Australia? any advice or thoughts or anything would be greatly appreciated thanks

    482 employer transfer process time?

    Thanks for this but that is the processing time of new submissions for visas, not a transfer of employer as I’m already on a 482 visa in Australia
  9. Hi im on a 482 visa at present and wish to change employer (same job / duties) does anyone know the current processing time for this? They are a able to sponsor me and have submitted the request to transfer sponsorship over. thanks

    $150k basic salaries enough

    Thought for a monthly Myki it was about $150 and it’s got 2 ppl so c$300? no car or associated costs that’s just for groceries not eating out that’ll come from the surplus money. realistically looking at 50% of our wages is available to spend on entertainment and towards savings

    Hi Coming over to Melbourne at end of May on a 482 visa. What percentage would I be taxed at for 90k? would I be taxed as a permanent resident?

    $150k basic salaries enough

    appreciate that and it is very much how long is a piece of string. It was more to see if everyone was going to be replying that’s no where near enough etc etc but none so far so feel better about it.
