    Visa 190 November Lodged Group

    Hi Guys, I've lodged my visa on 2 Nov. Now starting to upload documents into the system. I havent seen any thread about November yet. So, it would be good for people who lodged their visa 190 in November to share their experience and timeframe. I think for now is just to wait for CO allocation. I'll need to do PCC and medical next week. busy busy Hear from you soon.. ''come in and Share''
  2. Hi All We have received our invitation to apply for the 489 visa and will be applying in November. Was just wondering who else is doing the same so we can all keep up with progress. Going to the solicitors tomorrow to get all documentation certified then we can send off with our visa application...... Exciting times Chris
  3. Hi All, I'm heading to Perth early November and will have a 457 visa. Just curious as to where the 'young professionals' tend to live. I'm 26 and will be working in the CBD so obviously I'll need somewhere commutable from there by public transport. Can you guys give me any pointers? Thanks, Bevan

    TRA november applications

    My agent posted my documents to TRA on 11th November , then i emailed them on the 18th Nov to see if they have received my documents, i have not had a response as yet! am i being a little impatient? can any one give me an idea of how long it takes to get a response from these people? and do i have enough time to gain a 176 ss wa before July 2012? HELP!!!!!! :arghh:
  5. Don't know if everyone is aware but there is a planned strike by British Border and Customs staff at most UK Airports/Ports on the 30th November. If anyone has their trips booked to and or from such places I would assume the best thing to do is contact the airline. There are contingency plans being put into place and the strike 'may' not go ahead, but best be prepared,:idea: However always a silver lining. Hammer duty free and pack as much a you can, there might not be any bugger to keep an eye,:shocked::policeman::biglaugh: Cheers Tony.

  7. So, 4 year old knows we will be in Australia on 5 November. He knows this means he will miss "bonfire night" at home. Have *tried* to explain that Australia doesn't do "bonfire night", but that bit's not sinking in. 5th November = fireworks in his mind, the fact that different countries have different traditions is a bit beyond his ken right now :biggrin: If we take him to Darling Harbour (checked online and fortunately for us the bi-weekly fireworks are falling on the 5th Nov it seems) for it, do you reckon we'll get away with it, and him not noticing it's a bit different? :wink:
  8. Well this whole moving thing is a bit stressful.

  10. My family are relocating to the Sunshine Coast in November and are looking for a house to rent. We've looked at holiday lets but because of the time of year they are either extremely expensive or don't have availability over Christmas. We'd like to find a house in the Maroochy/Alex Hills/Cotton Tree/Mooloolaba areas with 3 beds or more and aircon. (A pool would be nice but it's not essential.) We're a professional couple with teenage children and don't want to pay any more than $450 a week. Can anyone help me please?? :unsure:
  11. Hi there, Just jumping on the same topic of an earlier post. Is anyone going to Perth this November? I would love to hear from anyone heading out there, my other half is a Bricklayer and I'm a Beauty Therapist and mum to 3 girls: 8,6 & 3. We're looking at going on the 11th and am finding it difficult to find accommodation in the Kallaroo/Duncraig area. What is everyone else doing with regards to accommodation? We're looking to stay somewhere temporarily (holiday let) until we can find our rental accommodation. Also has anyone ever rented out their house out to the MOD? If so what are your experiences? am thinking this may be a possibility as we have various bases here in Wiltshire and Somerset. I'm flicker between angst and fear that everything will go to plan - so much to do. How are your move plans going? :cute:
  12. Does anyone know what the Melbourne job market is like in November/December? We are due to arrive at the beginning of November and hoping that the job market will still be good and not start to decline like it does in NZ... we have been told that this in not the case, but would like to hear other confirm this!!!! :unsure: Thanks!
  13. I'm attaching the Minister's press release and the points test to apply from July next year. By removing points for occupations and ascribing points for qualifications the points test will give relative advantages for degree based qualifications as against trades. Ironically these changes will also, by adopting a credentialist approach, spell the end of RPL based applications for a variety of occupations. Also the introduction of additional points for a higher level of English might discriminate against many applicants. More analysis to come. Cheers, George Lombard
  14. Yeah basically I'm 17, my mum already lives in Victoria, so I'm moving out with her. Just wondering if there are any other people in my situation that I could chat to. I've been over a few times before so i know what its like etc, happy to give advice too. Thanks Chris.
  15. Hi Guys, Myself and three kids 18,16,12 came over 6 weeks ago to join my husband who has been here now 3 months. So far I am not working, kids not in school and the only other adults I talk to are my hubbys friends who are all men. Would love to meet up with mothers(40) and kids around same age. Our lease is up the end of november and we will be looking for somewhere else to live. We were thinking further up the coast maybe queensland although Port Macquaire is lovely any advice would be helphul. Anna

  18. hey everyone, the last one was really enjoyable so we thought we'd do it again, but this time at Maroochydore River. Come along and bring whatever you'd like to barbeque. We will be there from 10am, Sunday 28th November - look for us at a barbeque or picnic hut on the river next to The Esplanade. We will put an Aussie flag on the table so you can find us. The esplanade, Maroochydore Queensland, Australia - Google Maps looking forward to it, and we will probably try to make this a regular event on the last Sunday of every month (or so). cheers sg
  19. Brisbannittes! The Rocks Riverside Park meet a couple of weeks ago was fantastic. Everyone seemed to have a great time – especially the kids what with all the playground equipment and pools to cool off in! It was another gloriously bright and hot day, so the weather has certainly been on our side! Speaking of which, we’re proposing the next event is on the 27 November at Wellington Point at 11am (so that we can get a good spot), to give the Baysider’s amongst us a more reduced travel time! We’ll advise exact location / address in due course. Once again, we’ll post this on PIO in case we have missed anyone’s email address and also if you know anyone who would like to be included in this email just let us know their email address and we will add them. All the best – and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Matt & Sharon :wideeyed:
  20. Hi everyone We're new to Poms in Oz. My husband flew to Sydney last month on a 457 and myself and our two daughters (5 and 17) are flying out next week. I'm a newly qualified social worker but am planning to be at home for a while whilst everyone else settles in and would really love to get to know people in similar positions - maybe meet up for coffee? We're hoping to be living in Mount Colah but that isn't confirmed yet. I'm currently going through the excited/panicky/sentimental feelings and just can't wait to get there and start living again. Would love to hear from anybody :smile: Cheers
