Validation for the visa (trip to Melbourne in late 2013)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Glad to let you know that our 189 visa is granted. We are planning to visit Melbourne in late 2013 or early 2014 in order to validate our visa (visa will be expired in February 2014 while we plan to relocate at the earliest August 2014), and at the same time, to have a preliminary feeling of the environment, have some researches on properties, job and school for the kids. Do you think Christmas 2013 is a good timing? Reason behind is that we are not sure if there will be long holiday in Oz during that time such that we cannot have much information seek, e.g. properties, banking and medicare etc.

 

If Christmas is not a good timing, how about January 2014? Which timing is better you think?

 

One more question - what do you think we should do when we have this validation trip? (e.g. opening bank account? arrange medicare? applying the driving licences?) Hope someone in this forum can shed some lights to us. Thanks a lot!

People do take Xmas holidays owing to the warm weather. Airfares will be higher just before then also. Jan 2014 may be better.

Check the flights on New Years Eve or just before it, if you don't mind spending it on the plane or at the airport. These are usually much cheaper!
