  1. Well received great news via email this morning - passed vetassess paper assessment! yippee!! Quickly booked practical in october 17th - as next one is in feb and really want to get cracking now. Only spaces left were in glasgow (quite far as we live in bournemouth!) Any managed to book flights, which were only £40 for us both there and back. Now need to book a hotel/travel in for a couple of nights. Having never been really anywhere in uk can anyone whos done practical in glasgow reccomend a place to stay which is close to North Glasgow college, where practical is being held? Practical starts at 8.00am so dont want to be miles away and dont know area! Any help will be greatly appreciated. :notworthy:
  2. Hi, just ordered this book for my 5 year old. Kelly.:smile: Are We There Yet? (Hardcover) by Alison Lester (Author, Illustrator) At Amazon £8.02 A trip by a family with three children around Australia takes in wildlife, seacoasts, natural formations, and deserts, different inhabitants, tourist spots, and other points of interest. Most of these are pictured three or four per page. The youngest child, Billy, misses the family pets, and keeps asking when they are going to get home. The family is glad to be eventually home after the lengthy trip; but everyone appreciates what they have seen and learned about the large, diverse continent of Australia. For ages 4-8.
  3. Hi all, Just wondered if anyone could advise me on when to start booking flights and arrange our short term let? We are due to come out mid January (to Perth) and I will start my new job early Feb. I'm panicking that we wont get the flight we want (want to go with Singapore Air) or the best seats unless I book now? Also worried about not managing to secure a short term let, we need a 3 x 2 house ideally. A lot of the places I've looked at are getting booked up already. Also don't know how long to book for as they are so much more expensive than a long term let but then don't need the pressure of rushing around to find a house when I've just started work! :arghh: I think I'm worried that if I book now and then plans change we will lose money? It seems like quite a way off yet. Can anybody who has been through this offer me any advice please? Many thanks in advance

    Book recommendation

    Hi, I hope it is OK to recommend a book? We have bought a book called Culture Wise Australia by David Hampshire and Martin Kidd - David Hampshire is the author who wrote the excellent 'Living and Working in Australia'. Culture Wise is such a good little book, full of useful and interesting facts about living in Australia. Best of all, it has a great section on culture shock, describing the different stages that people go through when they emigrate. It must help to be forewarned about all these confusing feelings and it gives tips on how to take steps to prevent the worst of it. For that alone it's worth the £9.99 cover price!

    Useful book

    Hi Guys, got a book from tesco's called Escape to Australia, it tells you just about everything you need to know about gettin to Oz and New Zealand and it only costs £4.99 explains visas, education, money and a lot more, and easy to read, highly recommended.
  10. Hello, I'm just at the stage of scanning in all the docs for the on-line applic, at what stage do I book the meds??? I was going to book them now, but after just telephoning the med center, the lady said that they send the results to Australia. I wouldn't know who she would mark them for the attention of if we hadn't got a case officer by that point. Is that a problem do you think? Also..... another quick question for all you experts......I was told that nothing needed to be certified unless it was black and white, the only certified documents that I have scanned in is the stat decs we did for the TRA, is that ok do you think? The little passport photos of everyone aren't certified, I just scanned them in aswell. Am I doing if right???? No agent to ask just you!!! Thanks Tracy

    New OZ & NZ Book

    Hi All Just bought a book from Tesco priced 4.99 containing loads of info about moving to Australia and New Zealand. Well worth the money !!!!! Gooders gang :jiggy:
  14. Please help me! I am considering coming out on a 457 visa. Do I have to work full time hours? The info on the immigration web site seems to conflict itself. I am confused about visa's. If I don't chose to go for sponsorship, which visa as a midwife should I apply for. Does sponsorship make the process easier? Should I use a migration assistance company if I don't go for sponsorship. Lastly, Can anyone recommend a guide book that was their bible when moving.

    Migration E Book

    When we started out on the migration trail a good few months back, My sister got me an E-book on migration to Australia. It’s been a great read and help to us over the last few months, simple reading and easy to follow (which was great for me.:wub:) It’s quite a comprehensive book and a big help for anyone just setting out on the process or thinking about the dream of life down under. As it’s an E-book, if anyone would like a free copy of the book, just let me know. I can send anyone a copy, you just need Adobe reader on your computer (so I’m informed) to open the book. I’m sure it would be a help to many fellow Pommers. It’s over a hundred pages with useful tips and information for everyone, from application stage to Citizenship. I know some people are more clued in and experienced at this than others, and you learn a lot as you go along, but I really found the book a help, and I’m sure it can help others. So if anyone wants a copy of the book, just E-mail me or PM me and I will send you a copy. EMMY :smile: The book is good, but not as good as PIO.

  18. Hi All Can anyone recommend a good reference book on Australian animals?

Would be really grateful if anyone of you have seen or read one and can let me have the title etc... Thanks min x:wubclub:

    Medicals - when to book??

    Okay my lovelies, your opinions would be much appreciated on this. If the visas are granted we want to move as close to the end of the school year next July as possible to get the kids settled into schools asap and its especially urgent that we get our eldest in pronto as he’ll join Year 12 right in the middle of the school year, which I am dreading for him :wideeyed: (hopefully they’ll suggest him going into year 11 but I can’t bank on that happening). My question is this …. our visa application was sent off on 21st March and, going by the spreadsheet data, we should get a CO sometime around July. Do you think it would be worth me booking our meds for the end of July now, to speed things up or should I just sit tight?? Any comments gratefully received. K xx
