  1. Hi, Any advice on how much visas cost would be great - for a family of four on Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 121/856) or temporary 457 visa or similar... Much appreciated, WARDStoOZ
  2. I've been having a mare worrying that life wo't be better in Oz with the cost of living increasing everywhere. Can't seem to get a true picture of what it costs for a family to survive in PERTH, particularly. From the info I've picked up, it seems that you need about £100K PA for a family of 4. That seems ridiculous! Can anyone who's been living out there tell me what it REALLY costs. Thank you, thank you, thank you x

    Cost for cat from start to finish?

    I have looked at other posts like the one I am posting now, but still havent really found what I am looking for. I would like to know from anyone who has taken their cat to OZ how much it cost from the beginning please. How much charged to fly cat and the injection costs etc. Then how much in quaranine and how much that costs too. I have been quoted £1512.00 by a pet relocation company, but thats just to fly cat and get vet stuff done. Anyone think thats alot, or can I get cheaper than that? I have found out it will probably cost around £280 for the quarantine bit, does anyone know if thats about right too? Thanks in advance:yes:
  5. Hi All Not sure if this is the right place but I have a question. My hubby is diabetic taking insulin that in itself is not a problem as long as it is well controlled, or so I am lead to believe. My question is as we are hopefully going on a 457 visa what would we have to pay for the insulin etc as I have been told some are quite expensive? Also is it possible to purchase it here in the UK and have it posted to Australia by a family member? Any imput would be gratefully received.:wubclub: ktb08

    457 Visa cost

    Hi all, I am currently waiting on the big 457 application - my agent has all my stuff and i just got my rego to work as a radiographer so i'm hoping they'll actually submit it soon - although they don't exactly communicate with me:arghh: much!

    cost of living

    How much roughly would anybody say you would need to live on a week for an average family of 4. We are probably looking at 300 to 400 $Aud paying out in rent a week. then theres food and bills fuel etc. Ive just done that cost of living calculator on here and it says i need to earn about 7k less than i do now to maintain the same standard of living. Is that thing correct.

    Cost of Keeping a Boat?????

    We are hoping that when we get to Brisbane/Gold Coast (not 100% sure yet) we will get a boat. We are looking at possibly a Sea Ray 275. Does anyone know approximately how much this would cost to moor/maintain etc? We can afford the boat, but can we afford to keep it?????? Any help would be much appreciated. I don't want to get my hopes up till I have a better idea of cost. Thanks, Tracey.

  17. Mercer's 2008 Cost of Living survey highlights For those of you who are interested in a comparison of the cost of living across the world the above link is an international survey carried out by Mercer comparing 200 items & 143 countries. Note one of the big impactors on this survey are currency movements (ie weakening of GBP makes UK cheaper strength AUD makes Oz more expensive) Moscow is the most expensive with Tokyo 2nd. London is down 1 place to 3rd Sydney is up 6 places to 15th Melbourne is up 28 places to to 36th All the other major aussie cities are outside the top 50

    Cost of Childcare in Canberra

    Hi guys, We are hopefully moving to Canberra in September this year and were wondering if anybody could possibly give us a rough estimate as to the cost of full time childcare in Canberra? Have looked at a few websites and have come up with a rough figure of around 2k a month - is this about right? Any help would be most appreciated! Many thanks Sarah
  22. Hi, In early stages of organising emigration to oz. Wondering if y'all could tell me how much money you need to realistically move, I'm talking visa fee's, flights, how much should we have in the bank to get by for initial 6 months or so after landing in oz. I'm estimating £20,000 - £30,000. We don't have house to sell, just a young family of four ready to start a new life. It all seems pretty daunting, but i've got a trade in demand apparently (fibrous plasterer) so we're gonna go for it. Any ideas much appreciated Thanks

    cost of living

    Hi, Can anyone recommend a web site/s that we can work out prices of food, fuel, average bills, etc, in or around Brisbane. A few emmigrated friends (in NZ) have said about living on the dollar and not compare. I think it's close enough i think to at least have an idea. If anyone personally has anything to say about the cost of things please post as they will be appreciated. Thank you, Keith
