  1. Hi CalNgary

    Hope you don't mind me dropping you msg, I think you guys speak a lot of sense on here so thought i would ask you.

    Looking for advice really. We are booking our flights for 23rd May 2022 from Manchester to Brisbane. We will be having a holiday for 3 weeks or so staying in a hotel but will be actively looking for a long term rental and work if i don't find work before i arrive.

    Is there anything on these two subjects that i could be doing from over here in the uk or does it all have to be done over in Oz?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks guys great help for all your reply’s it does say on my visa that I am a permanent resident. They have awarded both pets of the visa 309/100 together will this help us buy if I’m a PR right away Think we will rent for first 12 months until we settle so time to save A good deposit and I suppose you won’t settle until you get a settled job

    Not sure how it works as far as knowing your property budget, Will that not depend on your job and your income once you get there? is it different the mortgage system in Australia or same as in uk? sorry for all the questions

    PIO Was thinking of booking flight from the UK to Brisbane in either March or May 2022 for a family of 3 Which is more realistic with the current climate. Getting lots of mixed messages TIA
