  1. Hello poms, I've started this thread in order to share some usefull information about where to look for the freight when you have landed in Melbourne. If anyone has an experience please put it down here, I think It would have a huge value for anyone looking where to start.:yes: I shortly describe mine situation-we have just shiped our Personal effects through DHL(by air), but they declined to do a customs procedures. They just said that they deliver a freight to Tullamarine airport and then you are on your own. Oh, and they said that we must collect our freight from Quantas terminal... I thought it would be from DHL terminal.:wacko: But here comes the paperwork, and I have no any Idea where to start and how to clear goods . Some tips would be very appreciated. Where to go, what to bring, how much time does all processing takes. Please note that it is an Air Freight. Cheers, Irmaal:wink:

    Unaccompanied internal flights?

    Hi, does anyone know who would collect from Sydney Quarantine and put our cats on a flight to Brisbane? It would be an unaccompanied flight but we need someone to transport them to the airport. Any help much appreciated! Nicky x
  3. We are possibly moving to Sydney in the New Year. As we will have an unaccompanied minor, aged 13 , visiting us, we are looking into which airlines offer the best service in terms of looking after children on their own flying London/Sydney return. Any experiences, hints, tips would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi everyone Our furniture is due to arrive into port shortly and I need to fill out the unaccompanied personal effects form for AQIS. Most of it is straight forward enough as we don't have anything to declare except for some wooden furniture. Its mainly IKEA flat pack stuff, ie painted and varnished wood, (no wicker or antique wooden items) and so shouldn't be a problem. I just wondered if, by listing all of these wooden items though, it means that AQIS will go through all of your stuff with a fine toothcomb and, if so, how this effects clearance timings? I know that with airport customs, as long as you declare any questionable items, they are fine - one quick question and away you go. I don't know if port customs are the same or if its a case of any excuse for them to put a hold on your stuff. We really need our things urgently now though so any reassurance you can give would be much appreciated. Many thanks
  5. Please can anyone advise me on which airline to use that would be best for my 8 year old son visiting me for July/August in his school hols. He will be flying from Manchester to Brisbane. He has never travelled on his own before although he says he is excited and looking forward to it.........as for me I am a bag of nerves already!! Any advice would be much appreciated.:biggrin:
  6. We received our family 176 visa and I (main applicant) done my 2-days reccie in Australia three months ago alone. Now, can my family enter Australia to settle there permanently without me accompany/travel with them? Peter

    Children flying unaccompanied

    We have a 11 and 12 year old, flying from uk to Brisbane in Uk summer holidays. We have researched everything and thought we were prepared and ready to book, but the ex in Uk has reservations about them flying unaccompanied. We planned to ensure that they are registered as unaccompanied minors, short transfer times and phone contact during transfer. We have been into quantas and checked out their system - and it seemed pretty good. Are we the only people who's children fly unaccompanied, and is there anyone out there who can give us sound advice - did your children survive and arrive at the correct destination????????? Mike(the dad) and Kat

    Unaccompanied Minors

    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but can't find anything when doing a search. Has anyone's children travelled as unaccompanied minors from the UK to Oz and visa versa? I've looked on several airline websites and there is an option for this but I just wondered if anyone has any experience of this. Children's ages 12 and 10. Thanks in advance
