  4. Hello! I am totally new to this site so bare with me! I am looking in to travelling to oz (Bunbury WA) to live with my family on a working visa. I have a two year old Springer Spaniel and the thought of not bringing him with me is too much to bare (this may sound silly to some but other owners will understand!). I'm worried about how he will handle the flight and the quarantine period. I work shifts at home and he is on his own for long periods but he has never known any different and is fine at home. He knows I will come back and knows he is in his home so I'm worried that the travelling and quarantine period will effect him immensely. How does the process work? And how long is a normal healthy dog with no medical history held for in quaranteen? I've had a quick look through the other posts regarding this query but there is a lot of abbreviations and things that I know nothing about! Could somebody please talk me through the process and even other members who have taken their pets to oz, could you let me know how your pets reacted to the travel? Thanks in advance for reading my post! Holly (and Sid)

    A simple question?

    ......If you know the answer. How do you know when a case officer has been assigned? Do they e.mail you. Or do ijust keep up my obsessive daily check and notice a change.:eek:
  8. We're at that stage now where we need to sort out our finances prior to moving to oz and would really appreciate people's experiences. We've sold our house and the proceeds are in a savings account. So what do we need to do next? I presume whilst we're still in the Uk we open an Australian bank account and then transfer money to it as and when we need it or when the exchange rate dictates? Many people use a money transfer company, why is that? Any info greatly appreciated, thanks.
  9. Hi, could someone please explain the process of buying a secondhand car from a private seller please. I've brosed the forum but would still like an idiots guide if you like :biggrin: I live in QLD and the car comes with Registration until AUG 2010. The advert says it will also have RWC upon sale. Will the seller have the forms that need to be filled in like a UK V5 etc? I've looked on QLD Trans. and they have fee's listed for:Registration transfer and Plate fee. Are both of these payable by me and if so do I have to visit a QLD Trans. office with forms from the seller? Does the RWC last for one year like an MOT or is it different? Thanks for any help. :biggrin:
  10. Hi , Now i am probably going to sound like a really dumb blonde in asking this question , but here goes, Hubby has been offered a 457 sponsorship visa, now we are in the process of getting all the paperwork together, but i dont want to commit to anything until i know most of the facts etc on the 457 and the LAFHA so here goes, if say hubby is on $55,000 per annum and we can get LAFHA on renting and food allowance now does this mean hubby will get extra in his wage packet each week or not is basically what i want to know! sorry bit blunt but thats what we need to know. We are a family of 6, me , hubby and 4 kids all under 10 , so a yes to this question would be a real +++ for us thanks for looking michell
  11. We have completed my hubbys RPL application with ACS and I am not trying to help my sister and her hubby do their application with TRA. I have read loads of threads on the new process but am more confused than when I started (and I thought ACS was complicated!). Basically her hubby is an Auto Electricain with 20 years experience but no real qualifications. I have managed to work out he needs path B :smile: From here I am confused. Am I reading it right that he needs to apply for RPL to be awarded AQF Certificate III based on his experience and then he applies for a skills assessment? If so where do we apply for the RPL and how much does it cost? I have found this website Skills Recognition, is that the sort of thing we need?? If I am way off the mark please feel free to shout! Any advice would be greatly appreciated .... but keep things simple my brain is mashed already!! Many Thanks Jen x

    Sun Sense & Simple Sun Cream

    Hi Can anyone tell me how easy it is to get hold of a sun cream called Sun Sense and how expensive is it? It's the only one that my youngest can use without scratching himself silly. It is an Oz make so I hope it is easy to get and fairly cheap. Also, my other devil can only use the Simple brand of sun cream (awkward kids!:wacko:) can I get this make in Oz? Hope someone can help otherwise I may have to use our entire baggage allowance in sun cream. thanks Michelle
  13. In light of the recent stories in the press and market volatility, I thought it might be helpful to post a “jargon-free” explanation of what this means to you, as a migrant, and the effects on your future wealth. Over the last 2 months the market has moved over 30 cents, so if you had £100k to move across then that is a difference of $30,000, which in real terms could be a new car, your flights paid for or some nice furnishings for your house! Worrying, yes, and unfortunately the recent moves have been downwards. The question is how low can it go? The simple answer is nobody can predict these moves, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself against these currency fluctuations and eliminate the risk of the markets moving against you. When migrating, it is paramount to ensure you are aware of these market movements and any significant trends developing, because the transfer of your funds from £ to $AUD will have a massive impact on your future wealth. Many people will leave their funds in the UK, as they may be renting for 6 or 12 months. However, 6 months ago the rate was around 2.40, and 12 months ago it was over 2.50, so the question you need to ask yourselves is what risk am I willing to take, or how much can I afford to lose? Please visit our website Foreign Exchange Specialists |HiFX plc, call us on 01753 859159 if you would like more information, or feel free to ask me any questions directly. Thanks, Richard, HiFX.
