    Shipping a Hoover

    I wondered about buying new parts from Syson for the bits that we can’t clean. Chucking the old ones on departure. The cyclone bit I’m thinking.

    This is great to know - I thought we all had to get our own visas. if I’m a dependent - can I work once I’ve taken a year or so off to settle us all? Do you happen to know? also, does it have implications for me - ie. do we have to then pay for our kids schooling, and pay the big medical amount of money when I arrive? Or will I (and the kids) have permanent residency too being a dependent of my husband who has that? thanks for considering lisa

    Do we all need a visa?

    Hi there lovely PIO community We are a family of four+ (me, Hubby, son and daughter and bump). Baby is due in October. my question is - do we ALL need a visa? I had in my head that as I would want to be a stay-at-home mum for a while, I wouldn’t need to work, so could we all go on a visa we get for just my husband? (Thinking skilled independent visa subclass 189 - he’s a computer developer) I was thinking that I could apply for my visa once there?! and do kids aged 7,4 and 0 need visas?? any advice on what we do about applying for a visa for ‘bump’ if you think we do all need visas? Thanks for reading!!

    I’m a teacher trainer

    Hi there PIO community i have been a secondary teacher for 16y in the Uk, but 18m ago I became a ‘tutor’ on a PGCE course - training teachers. I intend on applying for the skilled visa (skilled independent visa, subclass 189) but does anyone know if my slight change to the focus of my job is a problem if I’m applying under ‘secondary school teacher’? thanks for reading lisa
  11. Hi there PIO community i wonder whether anyone knows- I am an ‘English girl’ born and bred - and have a degree, PGCE and Masters all from UK universities. would you recommend taking the IELTS Academic test - though I don’t neeeeed to - but simply to boost my score as I’m 40 and worrying that I need all the help I can get. thanks for reading lisa
  12. Linked to this - I have been a teacher for 16 years but in the last 18m have become a teacher trainer - teaching secondary teachers of the pgce course. Does anyone know if this is a problem for gaining a visa linked to me as a ‘secondary teacher’?
