  1. Can anyone confirm this "Decision ready checklist". Any agent on this forum to confirm that it exists? And that it is speeding up the process? Whether it exists or not doesn't really make any difference unless it is speeding things along. Agent(s)? Regards, Patsy Stone.

    Eaten Alive. Myth Or Fact.

    I guess this thread is for those of you who have been in Australia a while, or maybe for your whole life. The times I have heard from potential migrants that the one thing that puts them off Australia is the amount of dangerous wildlife that is apparently around every corner waiting to sink its teeth, fangs into you and do you severe damage. So below is a list of the most dangerous creatures that inhabit Australia, I may have missed some, but they are the one that 'allegedly' as a human you may come into contact with. Just yes or no will do if you have seen any, or a fuller explanation will be fine. Remember this thread is about the animals that may find you,not the other way around. Have you seen these animals in your every day lives, NOT when you went looking for them, because simply that's cheating :biglaugh: and will skew the outcome. I HOPE to show that whilst Australia does have a number of deadly creatures it is a myth that they are around every corner and you WILL come into contact with them in your EVERYDAY LIVES. Taking my life in my hands here, as I reckon it is a myth to a degree, yep they are there, but hardly a daily occurrence. Here goes. 1. Red Back Spider. 2. Funnel Web Spider. 3. White Shark. (Of at least five foot long) 4. Tiger Shark. As above. 5. Brown Snake. 6. Tiger Snake. 7. Taipan 8. Crocodile. 9. Blue Ringed Octopus 10. Box Jelly Fish 11. And finally, a really angry and p....d off Koala bear. Come on folks, lets dispel the myth that Australia is alive with something that wants to kill you around every corner. Lets face it, you stand to be harmed far more in King Cross, Sydney, on a Friday or Saturday night.:biglaugh::biglaugh: It would also be handy folks if you couls say how long you have been out in OZ and what area you are in as this 'may' affect the outcome. Over to you Bobj, I have a feeling mate that you may have seen them all on your travels mate.:wink: Cheers Tony.:wink:
  3. I am sure there are a few who would disagree with the experts. Housing bubble a myth, says Westpac | News.com.au According to this article the future is looking rosier.:biggrin:

    Truth or myth????

    Hi again, right Nik has registered with the QLD nurses council and is awaiting confirmation of her IELT's but something has been bugging me for months!! After you do the initial assements online (done about 20!!!) the next step is a consultation,,,which costs quite a bit! Ive heard that some companies will give you a FREE consultation as to your personal circumstance and advice but I cant find 1 that offers this Are there any free consultations availible??? Cheers Sean
  5. Hello to anyone who can help ! I'm looking for advise on what I can do as I'm meant to be migrating to Brisbane in January and have not even got my visa yet............ Stupid boy I here you all say ! I agree I'm a senior engineer/field supervisor for Carrier Air Conditioning based in London and have a HNC as well as multiple trade qualifications and 6 years experience behind me, so why cant I seem to find a decent job ? My partner is Australain and needs to go back home for January to retain her job with the education department, I'm sending my visa application away on Monday now I have the stat decs as I'm going on a interdependant visa and NOT a skilled persons one. The main problem I have is that my company have done internal transfers for employees in the past but don't seem to be helping me much in that department, so I'm looking for alternate employers can anyone tell me how much does a fridgie with my expe/quali's gets paid, I dont want to leave my job in the UK that pays well and has career oppurtunities then get over there and have to work in Bunnings because I dont have the necessary paperwork. I would appreicate any feedback as I'm starting to get a little concerned about how much time I dont have. I'm looking to go to Brisbane by the way ! Thank You In Advance Gregg
