      Congratulations and happy landings in Tasmania.    The Trello board you're looking for is here: https://trello.com/b/W1fYXyW7/australia-immigration-public   and the the post about how to use it (in case you are unfamiliar with Trello) is here :

      Hallo   Guess what? (You never will!)   It took me a week but I got the documents together and certified and my letter etc. I scanned it into pdf as requested and emailed it and guess what...   My email was returned as “permanently undeliverable”.  Reason: 554 Policy violation.    My email (as requested by consulate in Canberra ) is undeliverable due to it being marked as “spam”.   So I am spamming them with the email they requested me to send! If this is the case, they are probably wondering why no one ever returns their emails! Because that is what I did. Clicked on “reply” and added the attachment. And voila, spam.    I give up!

      Thanks for the well wishes. I would love to see the Trello you were referring to. I will see if I can find it.  We have already sold our house and basically everything we have. It was liberating.  I haven't found flight deals, but I did realise that if you fly Emirates, you get a total of 46KGs as apposed to 30KGs of Qantas. This is the option we are exploring now.    Good luck with your move as well when you get there. When are you planning to go permanently?

      I was wondering if you could please assist me with an initial visa assessment. I am a South African with 2 years teaching experience with children aged between 11 and 14. I have a PCGE in Mathematics education as my highest degree. Looking to immigrate to Australia, am I eligible for a Visa?
