coming to SA to validate in 2 weeks yipeeeeee!

Recommended Posts

WHOOP WHOOP Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited, we are going to Adelaide in approx 2 weeks.

 

We leave Glasgow 2/7/11 and return 19/7/11 (couldn't get nay more time off work - booo!).

 

Can't believe it, thought it best to validate and have a reccie just in case house doesn't sell before deadline date for entering Oz.

 

Anyone else heading over?

Hey Gaz,

 

as you guys land we will be leaving to go home! Best of luck, I'm sure everything will work out for you. But please will you keep us posted on your progress once your internet is up and running?

 

Hope to be over by Christmas, but everything hangs on our house selling in a pants market!!!

 

Very best of luck Gaz

Hi Lorraine,

 

We got our 176 visas on the 10th June this year and are also looking for pop over to activate in August this year and looking to move completely in Oct 2012.

We're at this moment on two computers trying to find the best combo of flights, car hire and house for the two weeks in Aug. Looks like landing at Melbourne and driving across to Adelaide saves us about £700.

 

If anyone has any recommendations for a 3+ house or apartment from the 15th to 28th Aug we’d love to hear from you!

 

Hope everyone heading over either for activation or for good has a blast, I’m sure you will.

 

Paul

Hi Gill,

 

August isn't that long away! You're gonna love it!

 

We will be putting the house on the market when we return from Oz and we'll just have to see how long it takes to sell but I'd like to be over by Christmas!

 

As far as the Oz winter goes - nothing will convince me that it's COLD. Come to Scotland in December that's cold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That said I'm not planning any shopping trips in my bikini lol!

 

I will take photos and will post on here on my return. Off to iron the last of our clothes to pack.

 

hugs

Hey Lorraine,

 

We arrive in Adelaide on the 4th of Aug for good. Finally!! We applied back in Nov 08 on 175 and was in the back of the queue when recession hit. Applied for SA sponsorship at end Feb 11, got it in Apr, assigned CO at end of Apr, and visa granted 16 June.

Good luck with everything.

Hi Malkitek,

We will also be arriving in Adelaide on the 4th of Aug on our 1 way ticket. Sooo excited!

Let us know how you get on. At least we have family and friends out there as we were there back in 2007/2008 on a student visa (although we're not spring chickens anymore :biglaugh:)

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Riana,

OOh you just get there before us! I'm feeling very calm at the moment, considering my nearest friend is Sydney/ Brisbane?

Let us know how you settle back in,

Hi All

Heading to Melbourne 22nd sept to validate my visa.

Wife is a OZ citizen and kids have both passports so no need for them to go.

12 day all to myself.

Ohhhhh what a shame.

 

Just wish we could sell the house all all go for good. But not much we can do about it.
