  1. Hi everyone, I know this has been asked before but I cant seem to find the thread. Our present sofa's (leather) are now on their last legs and we were not planning to take them with us to Brisbane and just buy new once we get there, but, I'm now wondering if it would be cheaper to buy a new 3 piece suite here in the sales and ship it out. We have to get a 20 foot container anyway. Any advice on price of new furniture in Australia would be greatly appreciated. :unsure: many thanks Lynne

    457 to PR cost and time??

    Hi there We are moving to Perth in March on a 457 visa. Can someone tell me how much it will cost us to apply for PR out there and what is the usual time frame for this process. Your help as always is very much appreciated Regards Sharon
  3. Dear All, Hubby has decided to go ahead with his Skilled 175 Visa to emigrate to Australia!! :err: Still not sure where we're heading off to yet and would love to have your thoughts on that! Just have one major problem - our house. It's currently being monitored by NHBC for heave! This process will take a year, which ends in July 2009. By that time, we're hoping that we don't need the house to be underpinned! If we do, and our Visa comes through, we've got to wait another 6-9 months while the house is underpinned before we can sell the house!! We can't sell it now while it's being monitored, so we can't even go down a sponsored Visa Route!! :arghh: My Husband is worried, because he is 41 now and he hopes that when he gets out there, he will not be too old to be employed! Do you know if there is ageism in Australia in general? Claire

    Cost of Medicals and Xrays

    I've seen a few posts on here asking how much so I thought I'd write how much mine were (booked today) - Maybe if others could add on how much theirs were at different places it'd help people looking? Xrays: Oxford Radcliffe - £65 Medical: Donnington Surgery - £175 Need to book the Xray first, then the surgery book you in 2-3 weeks after the xray appt as thats apparently how long it takes for them to get the Xrays! Also, you have to send £50 non ref cheque deposit to confirm.

    cost of renting advice

    Hi all, Not done many of these threads so please bear with me a bit! I was just wondering if there was such a thing as to advise on how much rent you should be paying per week/month. We are moving to Perth in mid Jan 09, i have a job and a salary of $80,000 per year, what would be a realistic and affordable rent per week or month. Obviously we want a 4 bed, 2 bed and a pool !!!!! Any advise would be very appreciated have a cracking Christmas, one and all Paul :emoticon-signxmas:
  14. I'm seriously considering breaking my lease as i want somewhere with a garden/driveway to store boat, motorbike etc. Has anyone on here broken a lease before or know what the usual routine is?
  15. Hi everyone, not posted for a while but we are about to book our flights to oz WA for our reccie in late May early June(as soon as the credit card arrives). Just wondered what the costs are latley for ETA's. We are so excited and can't wait, we've been looking at hotels, holiday homes etc, picked places we can afford to stay but can't do anything until that darn credit card arrives. We've been saving since may this year but feel booking with a credit card will give us a little security(we hope)due to current climate. We've got a great aunt who lives in Shoal water Bay who we will visit while we are there then we'll drive down to Bunbury, we like the sound of the threads people have wrote about Bunbry might be a place we could live(we'll see) well thanks in advance to all and If I do not post before christmas everybody ahve a good one and hope all your dreams come true.

    Timeline on Medicals and Cost

    :emoticon-signxmas: Hi, just wanted everyone to reply to this thread about timelines on medicals and what they paid. Ive just lodged visa and probably have to get medicals in 5 months time. We live in Perth Scotland, and only 1 surgery is registered to do medicals here. Prices are for 15 years upwards £210 each for medicals and bloods and 15 years and under £180 they dont get blood taken. Then we have to arrange for chest xrays which cost £85 each. Theres 5 of us so will be pretty pricey. Never thought it would be so expensive. They also mentioned that the medicals etc...only last 3 months and they would have to be done again, then we would have to pay again for them to be done. When i phoned to enquire about it they said they sent xrays and meds direct to DIAC in Sydney, but our visa is lodged in Adalaide? So just waiting on reply from our agent Emma with Go Matilda to see if they have other surgeries where we can get them done cheaper. I thought meds lasted 12 months?? It will be interesting to see what everyone else pays for meds and xrays.

    Cost of living??????

    I know that this topic has been done to death on the forums but any advice anyone can give me would be great! I have just had a nice frank chat with a fellow PIOer and they said that if they knew then what they know now, no matter how much they love it in oz, they probably would not have gone. They have had a fair bit of money to fall back on. We have not got this sort of money to fall back on and this has been playing on my mind recently. If we go....we are going for good. I am not going to come back in a few months because we could not afford to live there. My wife should hopefully not have a problem getting a job, where as me will be a different kettle of fish. I have no trade and am hoping to join the fire, police or prison service. Any advice as to what the worse case scenarios are regarding living expenses, cars, house prices etc would be gratefully received. We are looking to come out with about 70-80K GBP in about 2 years.We have no kids. Many thanks JOHN

    Cost of moving

    MY fiance and I have decided to move to WA with 3 children and as he is a citizen and our baby daughter too we have no problems legally. As he has only travelled as a single person before though we have no idea how much it costs to move. Could anyone give us a rough idea how much international moving costs and what they would recommend taking and not taking. We have looked how much it will be to rent and the price of cars etc but if you could think of any other hidden costs there may be your advice would be greatly appreciated.

  24. Hi, We are currently looking into employment opportunities for my OH in Oz. I have a job to go to and he is looking to retrain while out there. Does anyone have any knowledge of the route into HGV training/cost and potential earnings when trained etc in Australia? We will be based in Perth so presumably he would get some work if he retrained? We have heard it is relatively cheap to do the HGV in Oz? Any info at all appreciated, thanks Fiona and Pete
  25. :wubclub: I am English and my husband is Australian.... I do have a visa so all that is done and dusted. The thing is we lived there for 5 years and moved back here 2005 - we want to move back but have no realistic idea what to budget. Last time we went we were alone but now have 2 small children. I am a nurse, he is a chippy so work shouldn't be a major issue once we get there. The thing is we will be going back to an area where we know nobody, we don't have the luxury of being able to sell a house here to boost the bank balance and don't want to arrive penniless!!!! Dilemmas... What I am really asking is what is a reasonable budget for a family of 4 to relocate on? We would live in NSW - south Sydney - don't want anything flash but only he could work FT as we have the girls..... Any help very gratefully received ; )
