  1. Definitely, we're seeing the same thing with the SAAustralia Facebook group. People would rather ask the same question over and over instead of just reading what others have experienced and posted before them. The problem with platforms like Facebook is that its almost like its temporary, nobody is going to spend the time to write up their experiences because in a weeks time it would be lost in a history of 1000 people asking about moving companies and how to bring their pets over.

  2. Hi all, Just a quick update to all the members still awaiting approval. Hang in there!!! We submitted at end of March 2016 and received final approval on 9 December 2020. Mad scramble put house on market and sold up everything. Happy to say we are on a repatriation flight which departs JHB on 10 April 2021 at 16:30 hrs. Did our covid tests today at the approved Qantas/Australian approved testing center. This flight is going to Darwin where we will quarantine at Howard Springs quarantine center. If all goes well there we will join our family in Silverdale NSW on 26 April

  3. I've been around since 2006 and so have many others in those early days as we flooded the forum with posts and responses, building up a solid reference guide for newbies while at the same time forming many friendships online and offline. Along the way, many new members have joined and they became valuable contributors especially with their more recent experiences but I must be honest I do not know most of the newest members or have had much interaction with any of them mostly because I have not been that active on the forum other than in an admin/tech role these last few years, wh

  5. I have been on here since about 2016 but not really visited since PR. I reckon things have changed quite a bit since my family applied and wonder if our experience is even relevant. We are applying for citizenship in 3 weeks time, so I have started preparing and wiped off the cobwebs from my general suite of documents. I will have a few questions for sure - applying from the Gold Coast

  7. I have held this profile as a Registered Migration Agent since 2012. However, I had previously held another profile when I was a migrant myself - that was from 2009. The forum was very active at that time, including arranging meet-ups in South Africa and Australia. It was really useful to meet others at different stages of the process. There was a lot of cross-country friendship also and I know quite a few people who through those friendships on here found help setting themselves up on this side when they first arrived. Within migration people often do not want to tell

  8. That's sad... I remember spending 7+ hours a day on the forum as there were so many questions and so many people needing support and assistance. Then those members in turn became active contributors, paying it forward. It was also a very social experience and we'd yank each other's chains, share stories and sentiments, laugh about our predicaments... We were like a community. It feels very disconnected now. Glad you're still around 😊
