    All i can say is get everything prepared for you DIMIA application cause once you get you ref number in relation to you hubby's trade (don't worry I had a nightmare, self employed brickie :oops: :oops: :oops: ) you are ready to submit your DIMIA application.

     

    Best of luck in your new life in Perth, we are off to Melbourne :P:P:P:P:P

     

    5 months and counting and a month prior to arrival travelling in Thailand for good behaviour :D:D:D:D

    Hi I have joined the site yesterday and have already found it great.

    Not sure if others found the same but one bit of advice when logging your application and assessments if when you get them certified make copies.

    I had to send two lots over at different times and had I not had this advice from another person I would have wasted time trying to get them certified again.

    Good luck with everything.

    Hi Mark

     

    I have a question for you....

     

    I am currently waiting for skills assessment to come back before I can submit the main application for a visa.

     

    One of the conditions of the visa being granted is that you cannot be in Australia at the point in time it is granted.

     

    I therefore understood that once my application was made, I would not be able to go to AUstralia until after the visa is granted so that I do not jeopardise the chances of it being granted. As presumably, you don't know when the visa will be granted so in my mind, not worth the risk....

     

    So how come you managed a trip? Did you not think of this ?

     

    Thanks for clarification

     

    Karen

    hi karen

     

    the answer is you are allowed to visit australia at anytime even after the application is lodged ( i panicked a bit also before i found out) what the dimia day is that if you intend to visit australia you must notify them officially in writing (change of circumstance form) this then will avoid them issuing a visa and notifying you of any queries on your visa application. only if you fail to notify them of your intention to travel and they issue the visa while you are in oz can they then cancel your visa application for failing to give them any notification

     

    hope that helps

    Paula,

     

    Can you help. We are meeting a lady coming over from Perth in October at the Opportunities Australia do in Earls court. She thinks she can help with obtaining work for my hubby Terry. Have only just to go for good (if they will have us) and are in the process of sorting throught what the gov wants.

     

    Will our application be stronger with a job offer in place? or just go in feet first. Does it make no difference? We are loathed to apply under the wrong occupation and think a job offer would make a difference (I am just trying to sort things out in my min). Terry has a couple of options when applying, but we obviously need to go with the one that he can most likely succeed in obtaining work (HGV 1 - Driver/Maintenance/Mechanic - Road trains in mind). We have been told of a shortage in this area that they are keen to speak to him about.

     

    Help - getting very confused.

    Hi Holyman

     

    Heading to Perth soon as we have the go ahead, just been successful with our TRA Application, if possible could you give us any details regarding the Conference in Earls Court in London, (if they are talking regarding Perth) I would be interested in attending.

     

    Any details would be great!

     

    Thanks

    Hi my husband and I are both being sponsored to work in Oz. The company sponsoring us is just about to hand in all paperwork, they have been told that they should pass the requirements and then we have to do our bit.

    a)Does anyone know how long this can all take? - have been told 6wks and we could be there

    b) Once the company passes the requirements how likely is it that we can still fail the application?

    c) How hard will it be for us to organise accommodation,flights,shipping furniture in that time?

     

    d) are we doing the right thing????????????? Does anyone else have as many second doubts as I do?

     

    thanks

        Hi all thank you for taking the time out to look at my comment, we will be emigrating to Perth from UK in August of this year and we're currently looking for great family suburb's to live in for my 3 young children which is close to the beach and affordable. So far we've narrowed it down to a few places and Secret Harbour keeps popping up. I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight on what it's like for young families here? What is the crime like? Is it safe to walk from the beach to your home? We are an active outdoors family. Any suggestions or insight would be really appreciated. We are going to rent for a couple of months and then buy hopefully near to our rental house so the children wont have to be moved around to much.
        Thanks again for reading this thread

        Okay, so I really want to move to Perth, WA. 

        Luckily I've worked there as a Head Chef before on a holiday working VISA so I know Perth pretty well. Before I left to come home I was offered a permanent working VISA at the place I worked. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons I had to come home back to the UK. 

        I've been back now for about 2 years and all I want to do is go back out there to enjoy a better lifestyle and bring my partner (who came with me and worked in Australia too on the holiday VISA). 

        I don't know where to even start, I've booked myself in for the IELTS test to prove I can speak good English. But what's the next move? Just approach Australian Businesses online and hope to get a sponsor again? Or pay thousands of ££s out to some random VISA company?

        Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it! Rob.
        Also I would like to add that I have been a Chef for over 13 years now, so I have a lot of experience.

        Hi .. I'm a newbie on here, Im 27 year old female and lived in Perth now for over 4 years. Not to bash Perth but from coming from a very social and active life in the UK to now a practically a non existent social life .. it's been very hard settling. Ive been out of work for a while now from non stop having job offers to nothing, and I am looking from Mandurah to joondlup and have lived in many of places so I'm not limiting myself. When I was working I did have friends.. I'm a very easy going girl, can talk to anyone and always had lots of friends in the UK. Over here I found people to be so fake and flakey. One minute they are planning a catch up or to hang out then the next they ghost you. I can't stand fake people and the fake friends thing, I do have a few friends over here but non of which I'm close too .. apart from my Uk little sissy (family here who also doesnt like perth) I was a huge party girl in the uk and still go out over here but im defiantly getting bored of it now. I would much prefer exploring, fishing, camping kayaking .. the outdoorsy things I love the aussie lifestyle. Anyways I'm really thinking about moving over East, I've grown up and sick of the heavy boozed filled wknds with the 3 day hangovers lol. I was thinking of Brisbane first but now I've got my heart set on Sunshine coast, it just looks so beautiful and I have been told the people are so laid back and nicer over East. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated 😁
