  1. I think if you're hoping your wife changes her mind it might be good to re-think your decision to move and have another chat if it's what you really want to do.
  2. Our shipment took 12 weeks door to door

    New to Perth... looking to make friends! :)

    You have to make a number of posts before the software allows you to use the PM facility
  4. Some schools may require to see a lease agreement especially if it's a really popular school. This is to avoid people taking short term rentals and enrolling in the school and moving out of catchment. It will be advisable to enroll once you're out of the holiday accommodation.
  5. Unfortunately not - it's you (not your passport) that gets granted the visa

    Pitbull rescue

    Sorry had to remove the FB link as per the forum rules.
  7. I'm sorry, I've had to remove your link (forum rules), as Rossmoyne says, it would be great for you to share your places to eat on the forum.
  8. I'm not sure about the closely related employment, but I think you do need an (available) job offer for the 190 and if you're not looking to move for a few years then the rules may change.
  9. My boy took me to Grill'd for the first time - I have to say I really enjoyed their burger and they offered low carb and gluten free options

    Harrisdale people

    have you joined our sister site Poms in oz? That gets a bit more activity than this forum.
  11. Would agree with VS - Irish/British makes little difference to how your application is processed.
  12. Have you done the ceremony yet? If not then you're not a citizen yet and unable to apply for a passport.

    Vetassess Plumbing

    Welcome to the forum - the OP hasn't posted since 2016 so unlikely to answer. I see you're posting from India - we'd love to hear your hopes for your migration journey.

    Plumbers beware

    This is an old thread from 2015
  15. You do not have to have registration prior to submitting an application for a skills assessment.
  16. Hopefully, someone will have the definite answer for you. You will be invited to apply based on the number of points you have. If you don't have enough points at the initial stage - you won't get an invite. How many points will your husband have if he loses the age points?
  17. Welcome to the forum - hope some of the NOR members are able to help out
  18. It might not be. I guess you have to remember that they will get a lot of 'fake' references and require a specific format. Certainly in nursing for example there are set things that are required in the reference to meet the necessary standards required Getting it right will mean (hopefully) a positive outcome. I've not found Aussies to be particularly rude (guess it may depend on the industry). I think, if you're having doubts if it's worth it - i'd hang fire for a while and make certain it's what you want, the process is lots of money to waste if you're not really sure.

    Man On The Ground

    I personally don't think there's much of a call for it to be honest. I think those are things that people can do pretty easily themselves. I would be cautious offering a service setting up visa's though. It wasn't something we considered for ourselves (wouldn't want to trust a stranger to view a house for us for example). Good luck with your venture though, if you decide to do it.

    Renovating... help!!

    Do you get the little aussie directory for your area? Worth looking in there, local tradesmen and sometimes offer a discount.
  23. Other than holiday lets, it can be difficult unless a private rental as most agents want you to have viewed the property. It is worth contacting agents directly as they may have some landlords willing to lease this way.
  24. What were the replies when you enquired? ETA - you could enquire with the Australian College of midwifes www.midwives.org.au/overseas-midwives
