    Pension advice

    Hi Steve Since you've had no response I will reply, I specialise in this area and could offer a no charge initial consult if you would like. I am based in Adelaide but have many interstate clients so distance not an issue for us. Feel free to email me if you wish to get in touch: Andrew@vistafs.com.au FYI we sponsor the parent site to this one and have done so for over a decade: UK Pensions & Australian Superannuation advice (pomsinoz.com) Regards Andy.

    Bricklayer - White Card?

    Many thanks ..... Will look into it

    Bricklayer - White Card?

    Yes you would need a white card to work on sites. For WA it can be done online and is quite a simple process, I don't think you can do it before you get here as you need a WA address (as the other states have different requirements), they now also require you to put on PPE gear for a photo, the vest/top has to have reflective stripes. I did mine through Bluedog training (https://bluedogtraining.com.au/courses/western-australia-white-card) about 6 years ago, it took less than a couple of hours then a phone call 24 hours later to answer a couple of questions (this may now have changed). The link will give you more info
  7. hey all , i was just having a think regarding work in Oz .... And when we where there you where in a bit of a recession , So my wife worked as a nurse. Anyhow just thinking as i run my own building company here in UK ( my trade is bricklayer ) ..... i could perhaps look at working and she maybe work part time ? But my question is regarding qualifications to work ? Do i still need a "white card" ....... And if so how do i obtain one ? can i get over here before coming over ? Just a thought i was mulling over ...... Cheers guys

    Young Family, hoping to make the move

    Hey @jproberts, How did you get on with your visa plans? I was roughly on the same kind of timeline as yourself with my visa, skills assessment done in August 2020, Pearson PTE in September, then EIO lodged in November. Just last month applied to the DOHA for our PR visa not sure how long it will take from here had been advised 6-12 months hopefully not as long as the latter! Looking make the move with wife and my two boys (1 and4). Cheers.

    Places to Eat - Recommendations

    Aww Floreat was one of our fave places ! the area and some of the house's ..... wow ! really enjoyed the place .......... Anyhow glad you had a nice meal
  13. Ate recently (for our Anniversary) at Prago in Floreat. Meal was excellent, it says Italian but is more Mediterranean/European. Fine dining portions and they offer paired wines. We had the 3 course set menu (with choices) for $68 each (although I paid $5 for the fish) and $24 (something) for the paired wine - I got a rose, chardonnay and dessert wine with the food i'd ordered. My daughter had given us a Restaurant choice gift card which was accepted here. Certainly worth a visit.

    Private Schools in Perth

    As Rossmoyne says there are lots of private schools in Perth but private doesn't always mean better from a results point of view. I would always suggest looking around the school and seeing if it will meet the needs of your child - I've known families start off in private and move to public and visa versa because their children weren't happy/thriving. Primary schools are really much of a muchness

    Private schools close to Rockingham

    Hi Manta, @Just cool hasn't been online for 4 years unfortunately, so they won't likely reply. Rockingham/Baldivis is quite a Pommie-rich area. If you search on this forum I reckon you can get quite a bit of advice. Such as:

    That is an interesting advice. I'll try my luck with them then...

    Private Schools in Perth

    There are many small private schools in Perth and most are religion specific. Once they know when and where they will be living, I suggest they post here and research from there so we can give more help.

    Partner visa - self applying?

    Thanks so much for this!

    Partner visa - self applying?

    Hi and welcome. Partner visas are one of the easier ones to apply for and it shouldn't be too hard to do. If you do get stuck you can always use an agent then or just have the application checked prior to submitting.
  24. Hi there, I’m new here and hope you can help me :) I am looking to apply for a partner visa for my husband. I know he is eligible and we live in the UK currently, I am a citizen and our two small children are citizens by descent. I am considering applying for it ourselves rather than using an agent. Any experience either way? Is it too much of a risk not to use an agent? Many thanks, Nikki
