  2. Hi all Thought of going for a holiday sometime in June/July. Put in application for 175 in January. Read previous postings before that any subsequent visa applied and approved will cancel the previous application. Need expert advice whether applying for and going to OZ for holiday with ETA will affect 175 visa grant? And do we need to notify ASPC? (no CO assigned yet, who should we notify) Thanks and hope someone will reply ... really wanna go for a short holiday break. Hydeteru
  3. We are going quite soon fingers crossed with house sale. I have 2 boys one of which is school age and the other who is 2 . Will they still have their checks in oz or will the fact i am on a 457 prevent this. Will i need to cover this on health insurance????. Will be taking out insurance for sure as they are both typical boys who get into all of the usual scrapes. Thanks
  4. Hi all, Looking for advice really, My dogs are flying over on 3rd March. They have been living with my parents since we left on 16th December. I can't wait for them to arrive but when i was talking with my husband last night he seems to think that i should not visit them and wait until we are taking them home to go and see them. His point is that it will upset me and upset them more if i went to see them only to leave them again an hour later. He is not going to see them and says he will see them when he can bring them home with us. What did other people do? and what do you think? I really miss them and can't wait to see them but i totally understand where he is coming from and so i am totally split in what i want to do or what to do for the best? Gail
  5. Morning/afternoon/evening all Situation: we're in the process of deciding if moving to Perth is the right thing for us. I'm an IT bloke (25+ years of consultancy, software development and systems engineering), and thus I've been looking at getting my skills assessed by the ACS (ASCO 2231-79 for a subclass 175 visa). We're going out to Perth in March 08 on a visit to family/recce trip and I'm wondering whether it makes sense to get my ACS assessment ahead of that trip, so that I could talk to potential employers. Against that is the expense of the assessment: if we end up not moving, that's several hundred quid spent. There's a little bit of time pressure here also: I'm 43 in January, so I'd have about a 18 months or so to get a visa application in if I leave it until after we visit. So: how do employers (especially those in IT) tend to view this? I've heard comments like "don't bother talking to them without a visa because they'll only tell you to come back when you have one". I guess a fair amount depends on the IT/software/new media job situation in Perth... Any comments/advice/experience welcomed! Thanks b

  7. Hi Hopefully this is just another scare story. We have just been told that you must not visit Oz while you are in the process of applying for a visa. This dosent seem right ??? We have submitted the application - paid for it but not had an acknowledgement yet. We are booked (all 6) to leave for 3 weeks 31st July for a holiday/fact find. Surely you are able to enter on a tourist visa while they consider your application? HELP Thanks
  8. Can anyone out there recommend accomodation in Brisbane/Gold Coast? We are visiting in June and I'm not sure where to stay, probably prefer a holiday home or apartments. Just really want to know if anyone has stayed anywhere nice that they can recommend!!!!! Regards Lindsay

    Going without ever visiting

    I'd love to hear experiences (good and bad) from people who have never visited (or don't intend to visit) Australia before emigrating. I know many people make fact finding visits beforehand but if anyone has any really good tips, once again, answers on a postcard, please :?:
