    Mental Health - Application

    Hi Paul, Mental health is treated just like any physical condition when it comes to the medicals and they'll be looking at potential cost. As stormy said, it's worth speaking to a good migration agent and one who may specialise in medical conditions. Information that is useful is - how well controlled the condition is, hospitalisations, functionality e.g. working/studying (showing that the impact of the illness is small). I've known people get visa's who've been in hospital in the past under the act but their symptoms well contolled and working etc., Good luck

    Mental Health - Application

    IT shouldn't do as long as her condition is well controlled by medication. However, I would strongly recommend you speak with a good registered migration agent.

    Mental Health - Application

    Hi, Im Paul and new to the board. We are looking at starting the process to move to Australia, but curious as to whether or not my wife's mental health will mean our application is rejected. She suffers from Bipolar. Has anybody had any previous experience? Paul

    Asbestos jobs in WA

    The first issue is you would need to check if the occupation is on one of the skilled lists. As even for even company sponsored visas it has to be. Then, you would need to look at the current requirement for experience. I think it is three years qualified. But be aware, company sponsored visas are usually just temporary for a maximum of 4 years. If it is on the skilled lists, then you may be eligible for a permanent visa via skilled migration
  8. Hello I’m wondering if anyone knows of any Asbestos recruitment agencies based in WA? I’m an asbestos Surveyor in the UK and I’m looking to enquire about a job over in Perth. To give you a bit of a background on my situation.. I have already used my Working holiday visa, so I’d have to go down the skilled visa route. I hold a P402 certificate in asbestos sampling and surveying and currently have 18 months experience working for a company in the UK. I have a family with 2 young children and we are hoping to secure a move by the end of 2025. If anyone has any contacts, advice or useful knowledge it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Joe

  14. Hi, has anyone experienced being ripped off by car rental companies when holidaying back in the UK? We had a particularly bad experience, we're 1409.97GBP out of pocket. I tried to reason with the company (Easirent in Manchester) to no avail. I've also tried EconomyBookings who we booked through and they won't help. It seems they prey on overseas visitors as it's harder to fight back once you're out of the country. Can anyone advise if they've successfully got their money back and by what method? Thanks Nick

    I have been in perth for over 9 years i am 39, and split from my partner few weeks ago back living with my family while my house is being built. It's hard to make friends here ones i have live down south so dont get to se them that often, and miss my UK girls! And now I'm single I'm finding it hard. Trying to put myself out there which is why I'm on here. Anybody in similar boat and want to catch up? I enjoy brunch, coffee occasional drink walking, beach and trying new things. I have no kids but love animals especially dogs, I had to leave my fur baby when I moved out which is tough! Mental health is not good without friendship, everyone needs their peeps! I want my person (greys anatomy reference) Hope to meet some of you

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    I think a partner visa will certainly be the right visa, but for help, I would speak to a good registered migration agent. Camila is a member of the forum and is highly regarded and her email address is camilla@newlifedownunder.com.au

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    Hi, I am just weighing up my options in terms of where to go next with our application and trying to research seems to be a bit of a mine field. The scenario is that my fiancé is a Permenant Resident already, but has been out of the country for a few years. We are just awaiting her RRV to come through before we lodge the kids and my application for a partner visa. The confusion comes that we live in the UK as a family, and intend on immigrating as a family. My partner's parents are Australian Citizens living in Perth already so we will be going to love with them in the short term. The confusion comes with whether or not my partner has to apply to be a sponsor for myself and the children, and if so, does she have to be based in Australia? Or could my partner's parents be our sponsor? Or do we even need a sponsor at all? I have my application sat ready and waiting to go, but want to make sure I have taken all of the steps before I lodge my application. Is the Partner Visa even the right one for us in this scenario? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    Hi all, New round here so pleased to meet you all. My long term partner is currently awaiting her Permanent Resident renewal coming through and once it's received, we will be applying for a partner visa for me. We have been together for just shy of 8 years with 2 children so I don't have many worries about the visa being rejected. The main question I have, is when I make the application for me as a partner, I have included the children on the application, is this correct and they will be included with my decision or do we have to apply for the children separately and pay additional fees? I have completed the application and I am just collating all evidence ready to submit, but wanted to be doubly sure on a few things. Thanks in advance for any help. Nick


    Thank you for your reply : )

    Mystery road

    I have only seen the first episode and tend to agree, but I will watch it all. I actually think that Aaron Pederson was so good as the lead in Mystery Road, that it would be hard to have a follow on series. However this is the story leading up to the real Mystery Road, so I am hoping that some of the history will be explained.

    what are you doing at this moment

    Putting the bulk rubbish outside, weeding a bit and some family time. Still can't get used to the whole verge collection and associated scavaging hunt.

    Both areas are fine really! We live in between those two areas. Travelwise greenwood/kingsley is a bit better I reckon especially at peak traffic. As it gets busy starting at whitfords to reis highway. Just use google maps with depart/arrive by times to see commute times. Whitfords dog beach is super crowded, I don't like it. Quinns is very quite. no idea about high schools, sorry! Crime is everywhere, but those suburbs are pretty good.
