  3. Hi there. I have relatives living in Gold Coast, Queensland who are willing to sponsor me. However, we are n0t sure whether they are eligible to sponsor or not.. Is Gold Coast still a designated area? In the immigration website, it states that for Queensland it's anywhere except Greater Brisbane metropolitan area, however other websites say relatives in Gold coast cann0t be sponsors.. Help please. Thank you. Cheers! Btw, postcode is 4215..

  9. Hi All, This is something I should have sorted by now but even though we are going in Jan and begining to pack up etc we still have not finalised a location. We currently live in a small village with my kids 10 and 12 (almost 13) going to the local primary school. Primarily I want to be in a nice area with nice schools and close to amenities. I don't mind if I am 30/40min drive from the beach it's the schools that I am more worried about. i don't want a huge culture shock for them with huge schools. I am doing so much research but am at the stage where I know so much I actually know nothing :sad: Any help and information would be so greatfully welcomed. Thanks in advance, D

  22. Hi all! having read some of the horror stories on here about hairdressers, I must say I have been extremely lucky!! The first hairdresser I tried, is the best haircut I have ever had and not too expensive. I got a free hair treatment and was actually escorted to my car with an assistant holding an umberella as it was raining!! I felt like royalty. Ali was trained in the UK and is now involved with training here in Oz. They are all so friendly in the salon. Give them a try and tell her she has been recommended on PomsInoZ! 'Hair on the Park' in Nerang is the name of the salon, tel no 55965722. Happy pampering, Gaynor.x

  24. hi all Hubby has just started RPL. does anyone know if we can actually start looking/applying for jobs now ready for (hopefully) sponsorship or do you at least have to wait for the rpl assessment pass to come through first? also we are hoping to head to brisbane/goldcoast area as apparently IT work is in these areas the most especially GC. Just wondering is this still the case are there plenty of jobs for programmers in queensland or is the credit crunch starting to hit there too? thanks :hug:
