    Can I take ......

    Yes should be fine, just clean it, make sure the box is labelled and declare it for customs. They may want to inspect shell/rock items.

    Have you finished quarantine yet Jon? We're on day 6 at HS. Going fairly quickly at this end.

    I've looked into this and you can transfer your vaccination history over to the medicare AIR system. You should find some helpful info online with a quick Google. Just sorting my medicare out then will do this myself shortly.

    Yep, I'm aware there's currently nothing in place for boosters. My comment was hypothetical in a scenario where there is. Hopefully as you say there isn't a huge need for it except for the most vulnerable. Only time will tell in terms of the longevity of vaccines.

    Yes I wondered about this too. How will UK vaccinations get logged in Australia. And also, we likely were vaccinated earlier then most Australians, so how do we ensure we stay protected long enough, will boosters be offered based on the date of your last vaccination dose, regardless of which country you had it in, etc?
  6. Yes I can confirm that you can take several infant items like strollers and car seats! If only someone had been able to confirm this for me before I flew. We followed qantas guidelines for repatriation flights and took just a 10kg hold bag for our infant. Turns out we could have brought the Stroller, travel cot etc.. I was pretty distraught when I found this out at the check in desk. But without knowing, we couldn't risk bringing it all and then having to throw it away at check in if they'd been strict. Hard to say if they were just being kind on that occasion but I think you'd be OK to take regular items for your infant. If only I had!! We've got to wait 3-6 months for our stroller to arrive on the ship. Lots of ergo carrying for us.... Hope this was useful for you
  7. We have just arrived in Darwin on a repatriation flight. Our newborn came in on a 600 visitor visa which was processed in 2 days. As long as your application is legit, ignore the processing times online as these are not accurate for simple cases. You can also apply for an evisitor visa too from what I understand. We will apply for her citizenship by descent now we are here in Australia. Good luck!

    I'd also appreciate some advice on this as our usual cover doesn't apply for migration. Just sorted out removals insurance with Letton percival. Ah thanks @Jon the Hat I've only just spotted your reply. I'll look them up.

    Have you been checking dfat for cancellations for the September flights? They do pop up, so some people are searching each day and occasionally managing to get a late booking.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Are you registered with dfat?
  12. It is typically cheaper to get insurance directly rather than through the middlemen (the removals company are just middlemen and charge you more for the same cover)
  13. Did it take roughly 12 weeks then? Everyone keeps warning me it will be delayed a lot due to global Container shortages and other issues. That's great yours arrived fairly quickly under the circumstances.
  14. Did your contents arrive safely with no damage, mould or mildew? Did you pack it all yourself? And did you insure it? If so who with?
