    Calling all ACT PIO'ers!

    I was thinking the other day when I logged in and saw a few ACT SS posts that there seem to be alot more people applying for ACT sponsorship then what there was when we applied.... So i thought i'd start a thread for all us Canberra PIO'ers to discuss where we are with the applications or actual move! And then hopefully organise meet ups in Canberra through this thread... Well where should I start.... We have our visa and are currently trying to sell the house.... headache central!! There are 5 of us moving, me (Emma, 22), my dad (11026 on this forum), my mum (not on PIO still trying to train her up on a bluming computer) and my 2 sisters (1 is 17 and the other is 20). We have to validate the visa by February but we are hoping to move for good in January Anyways I'm hopefully going to go to Canberra Uni and my dad is going to get back into some IT related job haha!! Be good to hear everyone else's story.... YAY ACT :jiggy: BOBJ > No sarccy comments about canberra please haha!
  2. ok! hi all. this is how it goes. I'm Irish and living north of Brisbane with my wife and 4 kids for the last 6 weeks. We would love to meet up with families going through the whole emigration thing and swap stories maybe even have a pint or two. so if your like us and feeling a bit isolated and looking for a connection with home, drop me a line. we can reassure ourselves about how good things are in aust and how bad they are at home. :wink: (only messin). so if you feel like talking, drop me a line. cheers
  3. Hi, I am a UK Pharmacist and moving to Victoria in June/July. I have already passed the CAOP exam and the next step is to complete a 152 hour (over 4 weeks) supervised placement. I am finding it very difficult in finding a placement. Is there anyone on PIO who has completed the APC process and could give me some contacts who may be interested in offering me a placement? I am on a 176 visa and will be moving to the SE suburbs (looking at Mornington peninsula, and SE coastal areas) and will be willing to travel upto an hour for a placement as I am desperate! I have e-mailed the large companies, but havent received any replies! I am currently a Pharmacist manager in the UK, but will be willing to accept a placement in hospital pharmacy too if I am unable to secure a placement in retail pharmacy. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you Vanessa

    Calling all those on a 475

    Hi there I am wondering if anyone can help - I have received my grant letter for my 475, the wording on my grant letter is "this visa is valid for a period of 3 years after the date of first entry" however on the visa entitlement page on the online system it states: visa grant date: 12th jan 2010 visa expiry date : 12th jan 2013 enter before date : 12th nov 2010 entries allowed: mutliple entries to and from Australia during the validity of your visa must not enter after: 12th jan 2013 period of stay : 03 years stay on each arrival my thoughts were that I could do a validation trip later this year and then do the move summer 2011 and have 3 years from summer 2011 - is that correct as it doean't appear to be the case if I read the grant letter??? Help pleaseeeee!!

    Aussies calling brits poms

    I am in Australia from manchester and I don't understand why Aussies call Me a Pom. I am told by Aussies that POM means Prisoner of Mother England. That would mean the first Aussies where the POMs then not us Brits. Wouldn't that make Aussies POMs not Brits? I never hear Aussies call other Aussies POMs not even their own forefarthers and people desended from Brits.

  11. Hi My husband and I are applying for a 175 Visa (he is a joiner). We havent progressed very far (first stage of Vetasses passed!), but considering the current frustration and waiting game we are all playing. I thought it would be nice to make friends with others who are going through the same (selfish I know!). Please post if you would like to stay in touch and share your experiences so far and in the future! Thanks Lisa x
  12. My husband flew out for Canberra today & wanted me to ask how/what you're doing for the derby on October23rd. He's an Aussie but has been here for 9 years & is a huge Man Utd fan & won't know anyone in Canberra so if you fancy a pint or 3 he's your man. He'll be working in Braddon, living in Karabar. Just PM me your email addy and I'll pass it on, or I can give you his if you prefer I'm being the go between as he's not yet on the website lazy so and so. Ta!

    Calling all Welshmen and women

    Hi Cometh the hour. Does anyone know of a Welsh pub in the City or close to Mornington. Or a great rugby pub to watch the game on Saturday.
  14. I think we should have a whole thread set aside for stuff to do with digital media, networking, wifi and all that. To start the ball rolling........... Does anyone know about cheap alternatives to the iPad? Has anyone tried having a wireless media set up in their home? How does it work? What are the best ipad TV apps you know of? to answer the last question, I've got an ABC iview and BBC iplayer app for ipad and they're both brilliant. Unfortunately the 4od app is unavailable in Aus, so watching stuff like Inbetweeners, Misfits etc needs to be done via itunes or a proxy server. TBH I can't be arsed with proxy servers and don't even know if they can be used on an ipad.....
  15. Was wondering if there are any Glasgow Rangers supporters on here in the Brisbane area??? Celtic fans do not reply...

    WA have come calling!

    i swear i couldnt have made our migration journey up! and this morning it took yet another twist.................................... we booked our flights to brissy and some accomodation, then planned to head on down to tassie start life etc, anyhow those of you who know us will recall last year we were offered an amazing opportunity of job and relocation package to Esperance in WA by the dep of corrective servs to have it revoked due to HR issues, so we get up this morning switch on the comp to check emails etc and low and behold jamie has an email from the PA of the area manager who had offered us the job, asking how were doing and how our plans are going, she went onto say they have a position coming up soon and would jamie still be interested??? if so she,ll keep in touch and let us know whats happening!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF?? it was totally out the blue never expected it at all it was over a year ago, but if its anything like the last offer we would be insane not to accept it, even if only for a couple of years, the package last time was a job offer with salary of just under $70k, a house provided rent free for the first 3 months then half our rent paid in a house of our choice for the remaining year, flights and shipping paid, so we will see what tomorrows email brings, honestly i couldny make this journey up:twitcy: oh and to add to it my 14yr old son was knocked off his bike by a car last nite, hes totally fine large lump on his head few cuts n bruises but VERY VERY lucky according to docs, someones looking out for us:angel_happy_face_ha
