  6. Were in the process of applying for a 482 visa. It has asked us for proof of our overseas visitor health cover. Who is best to get cover with? Are we able to get cover with our uk address? Many Thanks
  7. We're currently in the process of emergrating. My husband has been offered a job through sponsorship in wagga wagga. Can anyone recommend where is a good place to live for a family.

  14. His employer is also willing to start the process of a permanent visa as soon as we're able to apply. We're going on the 482 first to get him out there quicker. His employer has said if he could sign him up now for ten year contract he would.
  15. Thank you for your reply. We have taken into account the school fees and medical costs. I think I may have to stay in the uk until they both finish their schools here
