    Medical completed today

    Hey all Well we completed our meds today, all fine so far and the doctor gave me a few stats which I thought id share...she said only one in 1000 people in this country are turned away from oz on medical grounds. So I hope that's something positive for those of you who had pre existing medical conditions and are worried. The medical itself was ok.... Lovely staff, quick urine sample, height, eye test, weight check, 10 mins with the doctor who checked my chest, blood pressure, eyes, back and stomach (kind of prodding feeling for things), mouth. Then off for chest x ray and blood test and that was it. All very pleasant really fingers crossed now x

    Medicals completed today

    Well finally got around to meds today. We travelled down to Manchester, med centre was great. Turned up an hour early but they still put us straight in for x-rays then in with Dr smith, great guy who put the kids at ease. All went very well, now just waiting on postman to deliver police checks, hopefully very shortly. Then we might be able to let ourselfs get excited, after so many twists and turns over nearly 4years finally we are nearly there!!!!........:biggrin:
  3. My Australian Immigration Medicals have been completed and finalized. All documents have been met. Expecting Visa Grant any time. I found out today that my wife is pregnant. What should i do now? Should I inform the case officer or just wait for the grant. What options do I have as my initial entry date is expected to be 1st week of June 2012 and my Wife's due date is Mid April 2012. Cant go immediately for visa validation due to my job commitments. Was planning to have a visa validation trip in Feb - March 2012 but wife wont be able to travel then. I think that if i wait until our baby is born, we wont be able to get the baby's visa after birth in April in time to make it there before first week of June. Please respond urgently, because if i get the grant letter in a couple days, i wouldnt have too much options. Look Forward to prompt responses. PLEASE HELP....
  4. Hooray, we just lodged our 175 visa online. When we got to the end, among all the documents listed to be uploaded, the medical and penal clearance forms were listed. Does this mean we have to front load them?? Also, it specified that all the docs listed had to be certified copies - I thought I read here if you were uploading with a colour scanner, the docs didn't have to be certified, or did I pick that up wrong?:biggrin:
  5. Hi We are looking to move to Canberra (most likely) my husband has been offered a job in Fyshwick. Our daughter was not previously coming with us but now she thinks she would like to. She is 17yrs old now will be 18 in Nov 2011. She will be completing her AS levels this year so is only half way through her a-levels. Can anyone shed any light on what she can do once in Australia? She would like to continue education possibly going to uni but not sure where she should start having only done half her a-levels. Would she have to do 2 years of college or could she just do a final year? Would a foundation course for degree be possible? I am mega confused and she wants to be able to go to school or not come with us. Any idea of costs as I am assuming even if she attends state school as a migrant she would have to pay or am I wrong? Thanks muchly Candice
  6. Hi, I'm new to this forum and optimistic that others will help and support. Anybody out there recently and sucessfully completed the trade evidence form for a (Bench) Joiner 331213? Also, does the trade evidence form have to be approved as a condition of applying for a Vetassess practical? It requires completion of 7 competency groups, some of which fit my defintion of your average bench joiner in the UK. Others though seem to be more appropriate for the skill set of site carpenters and glaziers. Much of it is within my range of experience but a lot of my work is performed in a workshop and opportunity to survey sites and perform site operations is rare. Any tips and advice on responding to this form would be much appreciated. :eek:

    Buy house completed or build?

    We have been looking around & we love the look of new areas, so have been considering building our own home But on the other hand, we have seen in the estate agents papers, sometimes those new houses are being sold So which, in your opinion is the better option? :unsure:
  8. Hi there We are currently waiting to hear back from our state sponsorship application to Victoria. We applied 7 weeks ago (29th Dec 10). We are hoping to apply for a permanent skilled visa as my husband is a carpenter with his skills assessment due next week. We wanted to move to Perth, WA, however, due to the points system changing in July and my husband turning 40 in May of this year, the WA SS process would have taken too long and we'd have lost precious points. Our immigration consultant recommended that we apply for SS to Vic as they have a faster thurnaround time and then at least we would gain entry into the country, even if it isn't the state we wanted to live in. The risk we would take is not getting into Oz at all. My questions to you are: If we moved to Vic, do we have to stay there for two years or is this just a moral obligation as I've heard people say? If my husband were to be offered a job in Perth, WA, despite having looked for work in Vic, could we inform the relevant bodies that we were moving states without jeopordising our permanent visa? Could they force us to stay in Vic as this would effectively be making my husband unemployed?! Also, and the most important question, if we did move states early, would this affect the possibility of us sponsoring my parents and sister in the future? For example, would it mean we have a negative record with the immigration dept? We'd really appreciate any help or advice you can give us. Thanks!

  10. Is there any fitter turners out there who have completed their skills assessment form to get a 457 sponsor visa? Would anyone care to share some info on what they put on the part of form where it asks about skills & experience? Thanks Scott:confused:
  11. Hello, Very long time no speak! Been off PIO since March 09 because I was getting frustrated that we were such a long way off emigrating it was depressing. Anyway, just back from a 3 week reccie and wow, we can't wait to start moving things on. There's absolutely loads to sort out and we're not sure where to start really, or if we'll qualify (fingers crossed!) but we've been, seen everything we need to see to make the decision and feel dead excited and privileged to be in our position. Sure I'll be adding plenty more threads but just wanted to reintroduce myself and open up a discussion, particularly for those maybe considering a move and who haven't been yet because... WE HAVE AND IT'S GREAT! Thanks and look out for more! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Jo
  12. Hi All We have, at last, completed and posted our ACS Assessment application, hooray! Feels like it has taken forever to complete, as OH does not have a degree, we are applying for an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) assessment. We have had to produce project reports, references from all prior jobs, copies of exam certificates, other IT certificates for courses completed etc etc.........the list seemed to be endless I understand it takes 8-10 weeks for a reply, is anyone else waiting at the moment? Although this is only the 1st part of the puzzle, it still feels really good as we have now taken our first step to a new life in OZ! Fingers crossed! :jiggy:
  13. It has only just dawned on me that we completed 'Phase 1' last week - the move out of our home is over! After months of waiting & a week of frenzied activity our possessions are now waiting to be put in a container & shipped; & we are living with my sis-in-law for the next 3.5 weeks! :jiggy: Phase 2 is selling our cars, phase 3 is packing our stuff (90kg sounds like a lot of luggage, but I think we'll still struggle!), and phase 4 is the bit where we get on the plane & fly away.:twitcy: Has anyone else 'phased' their migration in their mind? If so, what are your phases?! Good luck to all embarking on the rollercoaster that is emigration! Sarah

    Newbie - just completed TRA

    :smile:Hi everyone, what a brilliant site. Just wanted to introduce my family & myself. I am Christine my husband is Paul. We have two boys Andrew 14, Arran 9. Paul has just completed TRA and sent off to Emigration Group. Let the waiting game begin! Forgive me I am a dinosaur on the computer so I hope this time I post correctly. Last one I posted on blogs:spinny: Whoops! We are hoping to emigrate to Melbourne next year. Good luck to you all wherever you are going.
  16. Hello, my name is Emma. My husband, my daughter and myself are currently waiting for a decison on our independent skills visa. We are using an agent who was recommended by a friend who now lives in Oz but this agent is useless. We thought our forms had be sent to the visa people in April but infact they were only sent two weeks ago. we have sent off our police clearance forms but we are unsure when we should have our medicals done. We were told that it is taking six months for a decison to be made on a visa, can anybody tell me how long they waited and when the medicals should be done. I am nurse and my husband is an Aircraft techy, so we hope they say YES! We have sold our house fingers crossed and we are moving in to rented. my husband lives in Saudi so are desperate for the visa so we can be all together again. my husband cant afford to come back to the UK.:spinny:
  17. I completed the visa application - 1276 - online early hours of Saturday morning (sad!) and noticed that when you get to the points page (where it automatically tots up your points) we received 0 points for English Language but my OH has British Passport and I was under the impression that you received 15 points for that. Do you think it is a glitch in the system - has anyone else had similar problem?

    Step one completed

    So, it seems that that nice Mr Immigration Man must now know that we exist. No actual acknowledgement or any communication from him, just a big amount of money put on our credit card. Hurrah!!! We're on our way. Oh, OK, it is only the very beginning, but it is a beginning.:jiggy: Jean
