    Moving to Melbourne

    Hello, I'm new to this website and have joined as I have recently obtained a permanent residency visa, sponsored by Victoria. I'm moving out on 21st August with my husband and son (he'll be 10 months by then) as we have to validate our visa by 31st August 2012. I am a nurse and currently looking for a job, however I am still waiting for my registration with AHPRA to come through, my application has been with them since January & I'm hoping it's going to come through soon!! Hence I'm rather nervous about the move as my husband doesn't have a job yet either. We still have 3 months though so I'm hopeful, although I get the feeling we'll be more successful with jobs once we're actually in Melbourne. Does anyone have any tips to help with the move? We're currently looking into shipping our furniture etc over. Also need to sort out childcare for my son, but as we don't know where we'll be working...or living it's a bit difficult at the moment. Any advice people ca offer will be greatly received! I'm really excited to be making the move and can't wait to get out there! LK.:biggrin:
