  1. Hi all, I registered on this site a while back but never came back, in all the busy stuff of getting ready for the big move. Now it's only days away and I'm not sure I've registered that we're really going. All our boxes were picked up this morning by the shipping guys, there's a party here this weekend, and then it's just getting rid of the last few things, cleaning up and saying goodbye. I'm Australian, brought up in Darwin but I've lived in the UK for the past 15 years and my husband and kids are English. Wish us luck, we've never been to Port Macquarie, so this is a huge adventure! :biggrin:
  2. We're arriving in Brisbane from Chch NZ in 10 days and we don't yet have a permanent address - staying in a hotel and then a holiday let for the best part of 3 weeks (longer is we don't secure a rental before then). Just don't know where to have our mail redirected - what have other people done? Sure others must have been in this situation. When we moved from UK to chch 6 years ago, I think we just gave the address of the central post office and all we had to do was go into that post office with our passports and they'd hand us our mail. Can't find any info on doing the same in Brisbane. Time is running out!! Thanks in advance! Kate

    2 extra days in Melbourne Quarantine

    Hello, Has anybody paid for extra night's in Quarantine in Melbourne? Our dog Bella can leave on the 16th Jan, however we set off from the UK on the 16th and cannot pick her up until the 18th. We had to send her first because of the rabies jab! and thats the earliest we can get there. Any help advice would be appreciated as Bella is my biggest worry with our move, she's such a softy! Thanks Hayley Ps she's a springer spaniel by the way.
  8. Yippee I'm visiting Perth for a few days. Does anyone have an apartment to rent out for a few days, or recommend anywhere to stay in the CBD or Northbridge area? I don't arrive until nearly midnight on Thursday from Sydney so have to be flexible with picking up keys and any other arrangements. Looking at spending upto - maybe $100 a night. Wondering if that is a realistic figure? Hoping for some great ideas, thanking you all in advance. BEGal
  9. Just heard a 32 year old American man has been killed off Rottnest Island, my thought go out to his family and friends. It comes just 12 days after a man was killed swimming off Cottesloe beach in a suspected shark attack. My son is now saying when we get there, he wont swim in the sea, has anybody living there changed their bathing habit in light of this?

    A few days in

    And loving it. Found a car we like...waiting on financing. Phones are almost set up. I'm up on prepaid now. Waiting on Virgin to allow a contract for a package. They wanted 3 months of payment proof. Got that to them today. Bank account turned into a bit of a hassle. Activated it and got ATM cards but neither are working. Glad we had cash since we found out trying to pay for groceries. Looking at a rental in Frenchs Forest tomorrow. Kiddos want to be on the beach every spar minute. Being on the bay makes that easy. No waves or heavy winds which is good since they are young. Missing my parents and did wake last night shedding a few tears. Went to Warrgah Mall after car shopping. I'm not a fan of those type places, but I have to say the design of that place is amazing. The way the spaces flow from inside to out seemlessly was brilliant. Anyway, just a little update.

    Satch's last few days in the UK

    OK, well today is officially Satch's second last full day in the UK..... And it's waking up to be a lovely sunny one down here in Kent! Her final vet visit yesterday went well - a small problem that I hope is easy to fix (I think it's already sorted, but....) She's got a mild outer ear infection (shouldn't be a problem with flying according to Vet) and has squirty drops for 5 days. Which takes her into travel time and quarantine. I've got a letter from Vet and have emailed it to Spotswood to get their advice. Hope she's ok Can't believe I didn't realise she wasn't just being a stress-head and off her food, she was actually unwell!!! Anyway, here are a couple of photos of her in the UK: 1. Satch in her usual position @ our local - watching the kitchen 2. Satch and hung-over husband (brand new owner of a 100 visa!!) settling in to watch Wales V. France lol

    Woman ages 50 years in 2 days

    :unsure::unsure: How terrible for her. Hope they manage to reverse this. Doctors have been left dumbfounded by this curious case of ageing - except this isn't a Hollywood film and she's not gradually looking younger. Vietnamese woman Nguyen Thi Phuong claims a skin affliction dramatically changed her appearance over the course of a few days when she was 23. She steadfastly believes a bad reaction to seafood led to the medical mystery and doctors think perhaps extensive use of traditional medicine is to blame. Her skin began to sag and fold, leaving her looking like a woman well beyond her years, after taking medicine to overcome a seafood allergy. Ms Nguyen's husband has stood by her side and says he he still loves her as much as the day they met. "I married Phuong when she was a beautiful woman. I have followed her through her disease and have never been shocked at all," he said. "It's not easy to talk about one's own marital affairs. Just simply understand that I still love her very much." What could she be suffering from? - Lipodystrophy Fat beneath the skin fades away while skin on the surface ages rapidly. - Cushing's Syndrome Caused by extremely high levels of cortisol.

    9 days to go

    Signed our house over yesterday. Stuff is in transit across the Pacific. Cars sold. Everything else in order. 9 days to fly out now with little to do but hang out with my parents. Unbelievably we did everything to prepare for this move in less than 8 weeks. I'm very worn out but still very excited. Hopefully I can relax this week to be fresh to start the craziness of settling in Sydney.
  14. Tourism Australia is running an online campaign at the moment, promoting locations around Australia in short online videos, featuring, backpackers, tour guides etc to lure more young people Down Under to work and play. The Tourism Australia campaign, 30 days in Oz, consists of 30 online videos, each following someone different in locations around Australia, with each demonstrating in 60 seconds why "there's nothing like Australia for young travellers." Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy said the campaign would promote the Working Holiday Visa and encourage young people to consider Australia as a place to work or travel, particularly those leaving school or on a Gap Year. "One of Tourism Australia's objectives is to get more young people to holiday in Australia. These travellers often become lifelong advocates, influencing friends and family of all ages to holiday in Australia and returning themselves later in life," he said. "We also know from research that many of these visitors are backpackers, who spend more time travelling and explore more of Australia than other travellers, which is one of the reasons the youth market is such an important one for us."

    28 days

    Hi all, My CO sent me a letter the 21st Sept. She wrote that I have to provide in 28 days these 3 certification: -Overseas police certification -Medical checks -Australian Federal Police certification Overseas police certification done. Medical checks booked for next Tuesday. For Aus police certification, I have sent to a friend in Aus by email my signed form to send by post mail to Canberra. Im not sure if I will get this certification in a short time. What's happen if I cant send 1 of these 3 things in 28 days to my CO? :confused: Thanks Luca
  16. Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and about to move to Melbourne in a few days (flying on the 26th Sept) on a 457 Visa. I've got a job in the CBD and have a friend living in Port Melbourne, so intend to stay with him until I find myself a room to rent. I'm 29 and coming over alone, so I'd really like to meet new people. I'll be having a look through the social events and meet-ups, and will definitely be hunting down a regular game of 5-a-side. Looking forward to getting to know you all. Cheers, Jon.

  24. Dear members, I have applied for subclass 475 on 23rd July 2010 through a migration agent, i got vetassess skill assessment for the occupation of Counsellor nec - ASCO Code 2513-79 and got the WA state nomination by June 2010 for the same occupation. Once i got the state sponsorship i couldn't apply for the visa in the month of June 2010 due temporary close of offshore GSM visas. When the New SOL 2010 came into effect, my occupation Counsellor nec was mapped into Psychotherapist - ANZSCO Code 272314 and the SOL 3 (Old) clearly indicated Applicants can only nominate an ANZSCO occupation from 1 July 2010 and An applicant with the relevant skills assessment in ASCO Occupation should map it to the relevant ANZSCO occupation. (pls find the attachment) I have been informed by my agent with the below email(from CO) saying my state nomination is invalid and they gave just 28 days to approach WA to consider as off list! I don't know what to do and my agent says we have to apply for SS again and i am wondering how will it be possible to get off list nomination since my occupation is not on the WA SMP?? Really worried and i am not getting reliable response from the agent also :cry: after paying 1800 $ as the agent fee any opinions please share :notworthy: Thank you and the below is the email from CO Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to you in regards to the above Skilled migration application. Please be advised that I am willing to accept the applicants nominated occupation of Psychotherapist, ANZCO 272314 , pending provision of the new ANZCO skills assessment. However, please be advised that the WA STNI has not been accepted by the Department and has been deemed invalid as the applicants occupation is not on Western Australia's State Migration Plan and they have indicated to us that they are not prepared to sponsor the applicant as an "off list" application. I am now providing 28 days for the applicant to reapproach WA to ascertain if they will be prepared to sponsor them as a Psychotherapist and under their SMP or as an off list nomination. The applicant can ONLY be sponsored by their nominated state of WA, and cannot provide another state nomination. Please be advised if no state nomination is forthcoming from WA within 28 days the application will be subject for Refusal. Regards, XXXXXXXXX Case Officer, Team X, Adelaide GSM Department of Immigration And Citizenship sol '10-schedule3.pdf sol '10-schedule3.pdf
