  1. We are currently in Perth on a PR skilled visa.. Our plans were just to take a year or two out. Then return at a later date ........ But we have totally fell in love with the place. Our Dilemma is that when applying our Children 19 and 21 were not dependent so could not be included. After visiting they are desperate to return..... Both of them have partners who want to move with them. Three of them work in retail and my daughters boyfriend is a plasterer, but has no papers. We have plenty of friends over here who are willing to help with sponsorship, but i am not sure if it has to be a family member??? My thoughts were to get them over on a working visa... Then look into it ..... Anybody know what visas are available to us and how long they would take?????? Any advice would be great thanks Andi :cry: We miss them dearly

    Useful Information

    I thought I'd share with you all some useful tips I've been given since arriving here in Oz to make life a little easier for you, please correct me if I'm wrong anyone, but they seem to be working for me.:yes: Mozzies. Hate the little buggers with a vengence but was told about Vitamin B1. Take this 3 times a day (to keep your system constantly topped up with it) and you shouldn't get bitten. I started taking this 2 weeks ago (it takes that long to get into your system) and touch wood seems to be making a difference although still to experience the worst time for mozzies which is Nov, Dec, Jan. I also burn sandalwood, citronella and vanilla, all mozzie repellants. Christmas Beetles. They look like flying cockroaches to me which freaked me out! They come out early evening and dive bomb you. They are attracted by white light so I've been told to put a coloured light on my deck and they wont go for that. Also put a white light at the bottom of the garden and that should keep the blighters happy down there for a while. Driving. The word being a courteous driver does not exist in Australia. They will cut you up, overtake, undertake at every opportunity, will not let you in (or out) will not slow down, worst drivers on the planet. My advice? Just do as they do because you cant beat them! Also they do not reverse park into a space! I do all the time and have passed a space, signalled that I am going in and the car behind me has shot into that space! Infuriating! Bargain on a price for everything. If they wont give you anything off (they usually do if its for cash) then ask for something free, be it a pair of socks when you're buying trainers or a lamp or cushion if you're buying furniture. Properties. Do not expect a house to be spotless or tidy if you're going to view it because it aint. We visited a few dumps (lovely houses on the outside) but they just hadnt bothered to make it look nice on the inside. So you have to have a very good imagination to look past clutter and imagine what you could do with it. Hope this information helps anyone moving here, I just thought I'd share my tips to make life a little easier for you all. Morven

    Home Information Pack

    In order to miss the 'Home Information Pack' deadline it means that houses have to go up for sale before the 10th September. We are thinking of putting ours up on Friday 7th September - even though we have had not had our TRA result (hoping it shouldn't be too long after). The HIP is going to cost £400 in this area and the estate agent advised us that we can have the photo's done and up for sale before the 10th we will avoid paying this fee. We can also let buyers know that we aren't in a rush to sell and won't exchange until the visa's have been hopefully granted.(fingers,toes and legs crossed) Anyone else comtemplating this??? Cheers Ally

  14. Hi My husband & I are moving to Sydney at the end of the year. I have just been diagnosed with an illness and wondered once we get there how does it all work so that I am able to see a doctor soon? Also do GP's there refer to a specialist, how long would it take to be seen by a specialist and would I have to pay privately to be seen? I have no idea how the system works there and what I would be entitled to. I wonder if the waiting lists are as long as in the UK? If someone can help I would appreciate that very much. Thanks Cat
