AaronD posted a topic in Visa ChatMy partner and I are completing our statements for our De Facto Visa and we started spending almost every night together only a month and a half of dating. Should we specify that this is on our statements? My partner thinks we should say that we started spending almost every night together at a later date than it actually happened and we're unsure what would be best.
Hi there! I've been searching around for reviews on living in certain parts on the golden coast (Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville, Sydney, etc.) on Google, and pomsinoz.com kept showing up! So I read all the reviews and stuff and my plans for moving to Cairns were quickly killed. I also noticed that almost all the reviews were negative, so please, try and not take all the bad things and put in a few good qualities, too. Just as honest as possible. But if you really truly hate everything about it, tell me, and why. I'm actually not a pom, I'm American (I'm quickly picking up Aussie terms, like pom- I was so lost for a while on that one). But anyways, I'm looking to move a twelve-year old girl, a 44 year old woman who got a degree in environmentalism, and a 22 year old boy looking for college, but will initially be living with us. The younger girl has a passion for swimming and surfing, from what I read, there are some stingers, crocs, and sharks around, and I was wondering if there were parts that weren't so dangerous for her. She is very ambitious and plans to go to JCU. The woman needs work in the environmentalism area, so I was wondering if we could get a work visa for her, and then the other two would get visas as dependent children. The older boy is quite dependent while he looks for college. He wants to live with us until he can find school, and then he will be at the school almost constantly. All of us are American, dual citizens actually, so I guess you could say Brazilian-American. Not only am I looking for visa help, I am looking for where we should live. I've heard some good words put in up north, but the farther north you go, the more expensive it is. We're trying for some beachfront things if the water's not dangerous and you can go swimming, or beach front anyway because we're a family of beach lovers If there are some good swimming places, thats an ideal. I've liked the looks of: Townsville Southport Port Douglas Palm Cove And was wondering if anybody had recommendations for down by Brisbane? I feel it would be best to live near Brisbane, but don't know the area very well. I was also wondering about companies to ship furniture, and some aussie terms that I should know, and the seasons.... When does the winter/summer/spring/fall season start? What is the temperature like there? What's the shopping area like? How pricey are things? Like, in Brazil, clothes are really expensive but food is really cheap, and housing is getting kind of expensive. Also, how's the crime? Is it peaceful or just plain painful to live there? What's the culture like? :wacko: We're thinking about moving sometime in late 2013 or early to mid 2014. Sorry I have so many questions... Thanks! Amanda
Hi everyone, My name is Rafael, 17 years of age and currently live in the UK. I'm looking to move to Sydney ASAP to be closer with my family over there. Now, there are many things that puzzle me. (Apologies if I go on for a bit, but I appreciate it if you could help) Firstly, I have completed my GCSE's and currently in Sixth Form doing my AS. I've looked at my options but they're very confusing. I have been told that my GCSE's aren't equivalent to Oz High School Certificate, and that they are not good enough for TAFE. I've been told that I will have to study Year 11 and Year 12 at High School in Oz. Is this true? I have contacted TAFE on the other hand, and they said that my GCSE's are equivalent to Oz High school certificate. This is the link they sent me. http://www.detinternational.nsw.edu.au/tafe/downloads/tafe_acadrequire.pdf I would prefer it if I would be accepted into TAFE. Secondly, I want to do an apprenticeship in OZ. I have looked on the TAFE website but it doesn't have any for international student. There are only apprenticeships for onshore students. Is it possible for me to do an apprenticeship straight away? If so, is there any link or website? Everywhere I look, I can't find the right answer, so I would deeply appreciate it if you could help. Many thanks
