    Criminal conviction questions

    Hi all! I am going to Australia on a temporary project at a university. My husband wants to come with me but he has a criminal conviction (no jail time, non violent or drug related) from 8 years ago. However he did not declare it on a visa 2 years ago... Now we will apply for a spousal visa as a dependent to my visa and a tourist visa in case this doesn't work out. We will state that he forgot to declare his conviction on a previous application because it was spent in the UK. Do you think it will work? I'm really panicked because we only just got married and would hate to be separated for 8 months. Any advice or experiences you can share? Thank you!
  2. Hi I would like to know what happens if you dont put a tick on the criminal record box on your landing card or WHV application (and you do have a minor record) and you land up applying for a more permnaent visa 2 years down the line. Will you be knee deep in you know what or do they accept that people make mistakes and just ask a few questions why you didnt declare it!!!!!
  3. hi there, I finally got subclass 190 nomination and I am collecting documents to submit to DIAC... I am wondering if - after getting the visa- I am supposed to land at canberra within a certain period or if I have the choice to postpone the landing for a few monthes or even a year ??? And BTW, is there any multimedia or graphic designers in this forum ?? I would love to help anyone with similar conditions to mine out of experience... thanks guys
  4. Myself and my boyfriend are travelling to Australia in April, landing in Brisbane and have heard that the Australia government ask for a printout of your bank account balance to ensure you have enough money whilst there. Is this true? If so we have also set up a NAB bank account which we can transfer money too. Should we do a printout of our money in UK bank before transferring to Oz bank? Help

  6. Hi all, Our (me & my wife) 457 visa has arrived & we are booked to land in Sydney the 29th September! We are going to be living in Canberra which is where my new job is based, and I have living arrangements & car over there sorted through my new job. We are still keeping our house in the UK but renting it to a close relative just incase... Here is my checklist, is there anything else I need to consider for when we start our new life! Australian NAB acct setup. Moneycorp acct setup for free money transfers. Pickfords booked to move furniture. Health insurance payed for first month (as part of my 457 app) although im gonna look for a cheaper version once Im over. UK driving licence. (im assuming you need this to validate driving in Oz) Am I missing something? :eek: Cheers Ben

  8. Hi guys, We received our visa grant VE 176 last 31st March 2011 and we are WA sponsored. However, my wife & I plans to land in Victoria instead of WA. My questions are, what would be the implications & problems that we might encounter if we proceed to settle & live in Victoria? The current problem that we might face & future trouble like gaining citizenship? Please help us before we finalise our plans and any advice is highly appreciated! We are planning to fly to Melbourne end of August this year. Thank you in advance!~ Tazmania:unsure:

  11. Hi, My wife and I are in the early stages of moving to Oz. Initially we have decided to move to SA, as we feel this would best suit us. My wife is a qualified Physio so we are hopeful she will get a job, although some of you may know better? As for myself i think it will be a little trickier to get a job. I have previously served in the Royal Navy but since leaving in 2006 I got myself a degree in PE and now work in education, however, i am not a qualified teacher. I have seen other posts regarding Teaching Assistants and the difficulties faced in getting a job and the low wages so i am sceptical of going out there and getting a job in a school. I am prepared to do anything (within reason) ie, admin/office, retail, leisure etc. So i was just wondering if anyone has been in the same situation or has any advice. How easy is it to get a job once you are there? Any help/advice would me greatly appreciated! Regards, Craig
  12. Hello all, so my reccie has finally arrived! Land Perth saturday evening and will be going straight to my hotel to rest up as i'm expecting to be knackered!

Cheers to any responders :jiggy:
  13. I need to land in other state than the one sponsored for the first 15 days . the state sponsored is asking for travel details to their state to start on "on arrival accomodation " any advice ?
  14. Hi all, I have my PR visa and we'll be arriving in May. I'd like to start the ball rolling applying or perm or contract roles before I get there but other than looking on seek & mycarrer can anyone suggest any routes I should take, and how long before I'm due to land I should start looking? I'm aware that until I get there it may be difficult and in some ways I'm resigned to not finding work until after I arrive but thought it best to give it a go. BTW I've been a Unix sysadmin for the last 20 years, most recently heavy Solaris stuff, certified, worked for major vendors etc, targeting Melbourne in case anyone knows of anything! Thanks all!

  19. Hi, we are flying from Sydney to SA, in August to validate our visas. Which route would you take, to take advantage of the best areas for work (husband in roofing, I am in admin - but honestly we will do anything at all) then to fly out from Adelaide two weeks later back home? Need recommendations so we can plan our route for inns, motels etc etc. We will be giving our details to agencies etc and visiting schools to see what their curriculum is and what they have to offer. Thank you. Look forward to hearing from you. :biggrin:
  20. Hi, My visa (subclass 176) is granted and would like to do my first landing. Appreciate if some one can advise what are the necessary stuff that I should be taking care off while I am there i.e. opening a tax file or registering with some government department etc. New to all this business therefore really looking forward to feedback. best regards
  21. :confused: Hi. Im lisa (43) and Neil (40) We are due to move out to WA later in the year but will be taking a trip in a few weeks to do our initial entry as migrants. Question I have is, do we need to take any documentation with us other than the passports with visa stamps. We have had so many different opinions and now I have seen this website, I thought it would be the best place to ask this question. Any advice? Lisa:rolleyes:
  22. Hi all, am looking for some general tips for my first few weeks in Oz. Have a year working visa and reckon I'll work in Sydney for starters, but want to get a few weeks of travelling in first. Someone suggested flying to Brisbaine then up to Cairns and travelling down the east coast before hitting the city, while others have said to avoid it like the plague as it's full of uni leavers and year out kids running riot. I'm 31 so could do with meeting people a little older along the way! Also, what's the general cost of travelling - and living - on a weekly basis (very roughly obviously). I've got a couple of grand behind me - is that enough to travel a bit and set up? Finally, are there any other great websites anyone can recommend for extra info? Thanks guys
