    Hi I’m arriving so a partner visa, I’m a PR when I arrive my wife and son are citizens. thanks
  3. Guys Over her in the UK i am a construction coordinator so i get info from the manager and I relay that to the relevant trades on the construction site. I have came from a scaffolding background and worked my way up. Can anyone help me before i arrive in May as to what I have to do to allow me to do this sort of work. I know that i need a white card and a QBCC to get me onto the construction site and to be a foreman or supervisor. What i would like more info on is what training can i do or need to do so that it is recognised in Australia and can i do any of this online before i arrive? Any useful links would me appreciated

    Travel to Oz

    Guys, Can my wife who is an Australian citizen, travel back to Brisbane without being double jabbed? Can she get on the flight? Emirates? Does she have to quarantine? Everything I’ve read is “yes” to all those questions but she is really reluctant to get the jab and we need to move back home to Australia TIA
  6. PIO, What is like getting a mortgage in Brisbane my wife and son are Australian citizens and i am a permanent resident on arrival. what do we need to get a mortgage? Do we need to be in employment a length of time? Do you need a large deposit? I have heard that we are entitled to a first time buyers lump some or my wife is for being a citizen. Loads of people have said rent for the first 12 months to see if we settle, think you get more for your money if you buy when you look at what is available TIA

    Enrolment into school

    Me, my wife and our son are moving to Brisbane in May 2022. When do we enrol our son into school? Can we Enrol from the UK? I understand that there are catchment area's and stuff. My son and wife are Australian citizens and I'm a PR TIA
  8. 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

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
