    You'd probably be best speaking to a registered migration agent. I don't know the answer but the problem would be if the tourist visa ran out before they'd got visa's - schooling (and cost) and potential childcare costs for non resident children. The cost I would imagine would still be the same for the visa - I don't know long one can study on a 12 month tourist visa (if at all), often off shore applications for other visa's seem to be quicker than on shore.
  3. Commutable Suburbs

    Hi, We've been here 15 months and only just starting to think about where we want or can afford to buy. I would definitely say rent first. Check out the commuter routes either by car or bus/ train and prices to rent and buy of houses, and quality of schools in a certain radius from work and narrow it down from there. The freeway going towards the city is very busy in rush hour in the morning, and again in the afternoon going away from it, so factor this in to journey time if required. Lots of new houses going up by us in harrisdale and southern river on new estates with new schools which have good leadership and therefore potential for good results. Smaller plots though with not much outside space. It depends on what you want really. Jen
  4. adopted children

    Hoping someone might be able to help I am a dual national with British and Australian citizenship. I lived in Australia for 12 years but returnedback to the UK 18 years ago. while being back in the UK I have adopted 3 children all British. The kids and I adore Perth and are desperate to move. I have loads of friends and support and already have employment possibilities I am a nurse and midwife. The difficulty is although by law adopted children have exactly the same legal rights as birth children and I am there only legal parent this applies to oz as well for the purpose of immigration they are treated very differently. if my children were biologically mine they would be entitled to citizenship however I have to jump through hoops to sponsor them at a cost of over 4000 aud. Am wondering if I brought them on a years tourist visa would it be any easier to apply from Perth end .Thanks so much
  5. Commutable Suburbs

    My advice would be to wait till you arrive and have a chance to look at different areas as what they seem like in person can be very different. When we were moving we were almost certain of the area we wanted. It was an area that is very popular. We arrived, went to see it and hated it. Also, I wouldn't recommend you immediately buy. Look at renting while you get to know it.
  6. Commutable Suburbs

    There are quite a lot - are you looking for an older suburb, new houses? I think it's really difficult to recommend as everyone is a little different in what they're looking for.

  12. Duncraig Senior high school

    Duncraig better than ORSHS in terms of academics from the experience of friends and the ATAR results. You get the same teenage issues but from what I am led to believe they are dealt with better at Duncraig.

  17. Construction industry

    The subject is the construction industry, not unemployment in general. If you are not in the construction industry, you should keep quiet.
  18. Construction industry

    I did hear on the radio that there was cautious optimism that things were starting to pick up - I'm sure people looking to migrate understand that there isn't as many jobs available at the moment.

    Do you have any more children?
  20. Muddled

    Hi everyone, like a previous entry we are considering the big move to Perth to be near family and enjoy a new life style in our latter years. But it’s so confusing reading the web pages about visas, agents, expenses etc etc....any pointers re the aforementioned would be greatly appreciated. We are in our late 60’s, and our daughter is a citizen down there in The Vines with her family... Best wishes to all.
  21. Ielts

    Hi can anyone recommend books or study tools to help with the IELTS test Thanks
  22. Construction industry

    Sorry, but I just try to be realistic rather than positive. For example, only last week, unemployment in WA hit its highest level in 16 years. But, hey, I can sit there telling everyone to move to WA as it is booming and there are 10 jobs for everyone and the streets are paved with gold.

    Don't let verystormy hear you being so positive
  24. Wow, Perth-London direct come Mar '18!

    Just had to do return flight for a family funeral. Outbound trip on Monday was 17hrs 20min and return was 15hrs 45mins. Seats were not bad with plenty of legroom, had an extra seat for return so even more room. Food was alright with 3 main courses and plenty of snacks and drinks. Only one hot option for breakfast so if you like omelettes, great. Cabin crew were great on both legs of the journey. We had a short three day trip so found two long journeys without a break to be very tiring. Would consider using it again if we had a longer turn around time.
