  4. According to a report released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on September 29, 2011, immigration is still the key factor in population growth despite a general decline in net migration. The ABS revealed in a statement on the same day that Australian's population "reached 22,546,300 people at the end of March 2011, growing by 312,400 people over the year." "This is down from the previous year where the population grew by 374,600 people, and is the lowest growth since the year ending March 2006 when an increase of 299,269 people was recorded," quoted from the statement. The statistics showed changes to Australia's population from the past 12 months to March 2011. With 167,000 people immigrating to Australia during the period, immigration accounts for 54 percent of the increase in Australian population growth. The figures indicate that immigration is still a key factor in population growth despite the fact that overall population growth rate has slowed to 1.4 percent. Although the current growth rate is slower than in the last two years, it is equal to the average population growth for the last thirty years. KPMG demographer Bernard Salt projected that Australian immigration numbers would stabilise over the coming year at a slightly higher level than the current growth rate.
  5. Hi, can anyone help with any advice? How long after you sign on with someone should things start moving? We signed on with a financial company (who sub-contract a migation agent themselves) almost eight weeks ago and are no further along in the process than we were when we started. We've made a first payment to this company. Although we have spoken to the visa agent, we've not had any separate paperwork to sign from him. Is this normal? :unsure: He seems to have a very good rep from what i've read on the PIO forums. Two months and no progress, are we just being impatient!???
  6. Hi all, We will be arriving in OZ in early 2012 on an employer sponsored 457 temporary residency visa that is valid for 4yrs and the employer has agreed to sponsor us PR after the 2yr qualifying period as per DIAC rules. Will we still need FIRB approval before we can buy a house? We are dead keen on buying as soon as we arrive is possible.

  8. Hi can anyone offer any advice on where to live?? We are hoping to be moving to Sydney in October. My husband is an electican and I have to children aged 5 and 2. I have lived in Sydney about 10 years ago stayed in Manly which was lovely but very exspensive. My husband seems to think Cronulla would be a great place but that seems very exspensive as well. We have friends that live in the west who say it's very cheap to live but my husband say's it's quite far from the city and dosen't want to be out in the sticks. Can anyone shed some light on where might be good for families and afordable, not to far from the city. Many thanks Maddy.
  9. Hi guys, am new to the forum and I pose this question as just had some major news dropped on my toes. My husband has been interviewing for a job in Sydney and things are looking very positive. My dh informs me that he would go out there on a 457 visa, initially for 3 months in order to find housing, schools etc, the we would follow. I have been reading (as best as I can) up on the visa and the processes and all I can is "CONFUSED":err::err::err: Can anyone please advice how much it is going to cost us, not the sponsor but us as the prices look incredible!!! That is before medicals, police checks and putting the pooch on a plane. Any help, guidance and divine inspiration would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance Keira
  10. Hi All Hoping for some input!! I moved to victoria last week from the UK & have started my job hunt!! I used to be a property manager in the uk & to do that job here in Victoria you need an agents representative certificate!! I can undertake this on a week long course at a cost via the real estate institute of Victoria. Has anyone done this already? Or think I should? Let me know your thoughts Thanks Em 
  11. I am in the (long) process of applying to register to practice as a nurse in Australia and would like to know from others who have been through this before me: The AHPRA ask for evidence (20 hours per year) of continuing professional development. They ask for this to be documented. I have certificates but am going to stuggle to demonstrate some of the training I have done from 2006 and prior to this. Has anyone else stumbled at this hurdle? How strict are they in the documentation? :unsure:

    Advice needed please

    Hi everyone I am knew to this site and just wanted to say hello and ask for some advice really. I am due to qualify as a peadiatric nurse in April 2012 and desperately wanting to start my career over in Australia with my teenage daughter and partner asap. After lots and lots of research I have narrowed it down to 2 places....Perth or Queensland (Gold Coast or Brisbane). It seems I will be able to find a job alot sooner in Queensland (6 months post grad experience) than it will be for Perth (2 years post grad experience) but cant help thinking is Perth worth that longer wait over Queensland??? Perth looks like a beautiful place to live, lovely weather, slower pace of life, great for bringing up more kids and nearest point of call flying to and from UK, if and when needed. BUT on the flip side to that so many people say it feels so isolated over there and once youve done everything there life becomes pretty boring and is so expensive to fly to other places such as Sydney, Queensland, Cairns for a change of scenery. The gold coast looks absolutely stunning and so much to do for kids but I know my partner would not like to be on top of tourists day in day out. Are there residential areas on Gold Coast that would get us away from this??? Is the weather better on the gold coast or brisbane than it is in Perth? I dont mind a bit of humidity but hate it when you feel like you need to shower every 15 minutes because its that hot and sticky!! Will appreciate anyones feedback, thank you xx

    Urgent help needed please

    A recruitment agency has asked my the following question: what would be your expected daily rate in £ in the UK? I am clueless what is a rational rate!!! I don't want to quote something on the high end since, although I have good experience and abilities, I don't have UK based experience and realize that in any new place I need to start a bit slow and work my way to the top. At the same time, I don't want to sell my self short, and don't want to end up with a rate with which I am basically hand to mouth. I want to be able to afford middle class living conditions while saving up money as well. I know this isn't related to going to Australia, but I do hope people will like to share their thoughts. Looking forward to suggestions...

    savings needed?

    hi we are in the very early stages of looking into a move to Oz. We are thinking we would rent out our house in the UK but would be making the move with no savings. Our thoughts are my partner would secure a job before we leave to ensure all essential costs are covered inc. cost of mortgage of our uk home in case we cannont rent it out! would be good to hear if anyone has made a similar move and how you found it? or if ths sounds quite unrealisitc! :unsure: thanks

  21. Hi all, My husband is an Electician and we have our state sponsored visa and will be moving to Victoria as soon as we have sold our house. We have heard it will be difficult to get work as he will have to be supervised until hes has completed the 12 months gap training etc. We just wondered if this is true? Is it hard to find work if you are unlicenced? and also how much would he expect to earn before and after he is licenced per year? As we are trying to figure out where we will be financially, what sort of amount we could borrow for a mortgage etc. If anyone can help please let me know. Also if anyone has any jobs going let me know lol!!! Many thanks in advance. Natalie :confused:

    Visa Help needed - WA

    Hi all, I am a recruitment consultant with over 3 years experience, i don't have any qualifications in the area however I have seen there is State Sponsorship offered for WA in my job, and it only says 3 years needed. Just need some help if i were to apply and have some questions. My family in Perth have said there is loads of recruitment work, so once I have received state sponsorship, (if i get it) whats next? Do i need more experience, to apply for next stage, am very confused. Is it only 3 years i need?? Also am trying to take the VETASSESS test to begin the state sponsorship process, how do i even find my job? I can't seem to find the right area to take my specific test!! Thanks to all,
