  1. Just before Crimbo

    Loads of time!
  2. So, this is where we are now ....

    Well as Pegg was only here for one year would not qualify for a 5 year RRV as you advised
  3. 457 to PR

    what visa were you on when they made you redundant then? How can you have a casual contract on a sponsored visa?
  4. try one of the other banks, we had an account with the Commonwealth a long time before we moved.
  5. Anyone live in Yanchep?

    dont know about school run times but would take you around 20 minutes at off peak. You have to consider work commute as well, have you been to Yanchep? its nice and shiney and new but apart from the beach not much else there.
  6. Nursing in Australia

    Dont you need a degree to be a nurse? Are you maybe just plugging those courses?
  7. Chicken pox 4 days before we are due to fly!!!

    Are you allowed to fly with chickenpox? I would check if you need a Dr's letter saying its not still infectious
  8. 15 Months in... so far so good!!

    Must be the area you are in. I dont see my OH for 4 weeks at a time and certainly am not feeling vunerable or insecure where I live!
  9. You cant work on a tourist visa, there is some volunteer work that your not supposed to do either I think.
  10. 3 years after getting our 189 grant....we're coming

    I would agree with the Commonwealth Bank, have been with them 8 years, their Online banking is sooo easy! Hillarys is a lovely suburb, the only touristy bit is Hillary's Boat Harbour and that is not really in the residential part. There is a great park for the kids, Mawson Park along with some small shops, Coles etc, and Whitfords Shopping Centre too. I wouldnt go any further than Heathridge to be honest, seems to be so many British congregate further north and a lot of new big estates, just rows and rows of same looking new builds. just personally I prefer older suburbs like Hillarys, Duncraig, Padbury etc, pay a bit more but at least you get a well built house (might need some renovation) but much bigger plots and you dont feel like you are just a colourbond panel away from your neighbours, again thats personal choice though. Hillarys has a good primary school, along with South Padbury, not sure about Duncraig, but both these areas feed into Duncraig High. There is a business networking group here called District 32, they have a facebook page, dont know any others. We have used Anglo Pacific in the past both just for boxes of stuff and a full container, have moved back and forward a bit, also interstate, Crown is also good, but pricey, Kents are just as good but a bit more reasonable. Transglobal are good too(told you we have moved a bit!)
  11. School advice/ help please!

    Be kinda of a long way to drop them off at Altona since they will be living in WA! Actually dont think they would be very impressed with Daycare since they are 10 and 13!
  12. 457/TSS and 186/187 visas hit by budget

    Well, if they are not willing to pay then obviously their need is not urgent and they would have time to train up an Australian!
  13. Prices have come down a bit but if its that much of a bargain I would find out why first.
  14. Skilled career?

    It looks like your wifes qualifications would be for working in Daycare, or what Uk calls Nursery. A pre-primary/early years teacher is a qualified teacher over here.
