I wouldn't worry about the TFN until you move permanently, it's quick to get and it won't prevent you getting a job if you don't have one - you just need one before your first pay.

Credit score does not work like the UK.  I was amazed when I went back to the UK to find out how everything is dictated by your credit score - it's almost irrelevant here. Whether you have individual or joint accounts will make absolutely no difference, whichever you prefer.

What documents - can't think of any, other than what you'd normally bring on holiday.  It will be too soon to rent or buy a place.  If you want to try approaching some employers, you could bring your CV's, but with just a week I'd suggest spending it getting to know the place.

Echo all that.

We actually opened up our ANZ Bank account in the UK and then went through the final details in branch, such as proving we are who we say we are (100 point check they called it..) whereupon our cards were ready for us.  We opened up a joint account, really to get things moving whilst we were there in February and will set about getting all the other things sorted on our return.

Sounds like you are just headed to validate your visas, which is what we did.


Kirsty is the main applicant. Vetassess rec/proc 17/12/13 (finally) a positive assessment 10/06/14. ILETS 19/03/16 overall 8.5 score rec 01/04/16, 190 EOI for SA Lodged 07/12/16. EOI Approved 24/01/17. 190 visa submitted 24/02/17, CO 06/03/17 Medicals 20/03/17. 190 for SA granted 05/04/17

Hello Fellas,

I'm moving to Adelaide from Dubai on a 489 in August. Would be great to connect and network.

I'm a marketing professional and it would be great to get some advise on how to secure a job? Is there a hiring season trend of sorts?

Also is the public transport efficient enough or do I need to get a car, will be put up in the Athelstone area for starters.

Thanks.

@kunal_85 congrats! Well public transport does not connect the entire length and breadth of the city and probable having a car would be more of a necessity than a luxury. Jobs are difficult to get but definitely not impossible, one just needs to hang in there.. I think August is a good time to arrive. 

I too am from Dubai and at present in Adelaide to do my first landing, am here for 10 days and preparing ourselves for the big move in October.

For used cars you can reffer to the below link, this is from the government and what i got to know is a very reliable source of procuring cars and normally come with warranties.

Hi KPG/ Kunal, 

Are you currently in Dubai. it would be great to connect. Also, how was your experience for the first landing in Adelaide. 

Regards

Hi All,

I am very much new to this forum, in-fact, this is my first query ever. I have got invitation for 489 visa early last month and i will be applying for it at my earliest and will be moving with my wife and a kid(1.9 years now). I am a SW professional(Analyst Programmer).

My points breakdown is : Age: 32 years- 30 points,  PTE- 65+ in each- 10 points, partner points-5, Education-10 points= 65 in total.                

I have a couple of queries, any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

1> I have also submitted EOI for 190(both Victoria and NSW), should i wait for it or go ahead with 489?(Visa rules are getting complicated day by day)

If i consider 489:

1> How difficult would it be in securing a SW job?

2> In case, if i do not get a SW job, how difficult or what are the chances that i will get a job in other streams?

3> How much would the average expense be for a family of 3 in Adelaide? Which includes rent and other expenses.

4> How much a medicare insurance may cost for us?

any other suggestions or information is highly desirable.

Thanks in advance
