    Importin a vehicle into Australia

    Hi All, I have a question which I know a few people have asked, but really need answers from only those who have successfully done this. We are over activating our PR VISA and have been looking at vehicles. We have a VW 4 motion long wheelbase Transproter crew bus in South Africa, which we ordered from new and it is just over a year old with a whole lot of ect’s we had fitted. We paid for our vehicle cash and it’s still has very low mileage and is in excellent condition. We looked at trying to get the same/similar vehicle here and there’s none that even come near to our ones configuration. The
  2. Hi, I'm looking for some suggestions for online places to make use of to buy gifts / hampers for deliver in South Africa. I want to send a Christmas gift hamper to my dad who is still in South Africa. I have looked at the usual suspects (Netflorist, Woolworths, etc) and haven't found quote what I'm looking for. The exchange rate is fairly favourable and I don't mind spending some money. Any suggestions please?! As a side note though, it has to be non-alcoholic. Wouldn't want him booted from his residence... Thanks!

  4. Just want to find out. What is the maximum one can take out of SA. I seem to remember a quote of R 1,000,000 per person per year. Is this right and if so is it per person per calendar year (Jan to end Dec)? Need the money to buy a bicycle this side. LOL
  5. Hi everyone I remember seeing a "list of 100 things to do ahead of your immigration date" checklist somewhere. Can anyone share a link? September rolling ever nearer
  6. Hello, I am from the St Ives Toastmasters club and am sharing an event for Tuesday 23. March. St Ives, in the leafy northern suburbs of Sydney, has a large number of residents with South African heritage. In our toastmasters club we also have a very healthy South African representation among members and are running a unique South African theme evening to celebrate the South African culture. What is toastmasters? It is a community style club to help improve the speaking ability of members through a program and support of other members. South African Evening in St Ives The South African theme ev
  7. This may be a dumb question, but if I am travelling to South Africa on an Australian passport, do I need a visa to enter South Africa? Anyone done this recently? While you are at it - throw some "going back to SA on holiday tips" at me Cheers

  9. First and foremost, I need to introduce myself by simply stating that my wife and I (after 4 years of considering this, that and the other) decided to make the move to Australia. Like most other South Africans (Afrikaans type at least) we have decided on Western Australia. We have expressed our interest to agents known as IXP Group. However, having read recent posts on migration fraud, I am hesitant to pay any money to them. Fearing, of course, a scam of some sort being thrown our way. The post, which raised the alarm bells, was a copy paste post from Scam Alert noting certain key indicators

  11. Hi, I've been thinking a lot of this and think I have enough thought behind it to make this statement... South Africa is not the rainbow nation we were looking forward to... it's become the source of all that we've tried so hard to steer clear of and forget... it is the breeding ground for modern racism. I consider myself a liberally thinking person. I've seen the news articles and the TV commentaries and its strikingly obvious... this country does not want to let racism die, but instead keeps a firm grip on it and cultivates it. Look at our politicians... they should be setting examples of "t
  12. I need advice on how to go about getting my pension from South Africa to be transferred monthly into my bank account in Australia. My pension fund requires a SARB reference number to do this. It looks like I may have to travel the application for formal emigration route to get this reference number from the South African Reserve Bank, and doing that I can also move my other RA to Australia in one go perhaps. I still have a bank account in RSA. Anybody that travelled this route recently who knows what the correct procedure is to get this SARB Reference Number?
  13. The Conqueror’s Project- ‘Recognising the past, supporting the future’ The Conquerors is the name that has been created to remember the all-conquering 1970 South African Springbok cricket team that defeated a strong Australian team 4 nil. Some of the players from this series include Peter and Graeme Pollock, Mike Procter, Barry Richards, Trevor Goddard, Dr Ali Bacher, Lee Irvine, Tiger Lance, Denis Lindsay and Eddie Barlow. This project has been initiated to recognise the exploits of the greatest cricket team to ever represent South Africa and at the same time to provide this team with the veh
  14. Hi. I was born in South Africa but came to Australia almost six years ago. Currently I am doing an HSC Society and Culture Personal Interest Project on whether or not immigration to Australia is better for an Afrikaner child than living in post-apartheid South Africa. As such a child, who immigrated to Australia, I often wonder where if perhaps I would have been better off remaining in South Africa. I would love to know what you think, if you have any particular insights and whether you think Australia or South Africa is a better place to bring up Afrikaner children. Other than commenting on

    Research Participation Opportunity

    Hi For my HSC (equivalent to Matric) I am doing a major work in Society in Culture. As an Afrikaner immigrant to Australia, I find it fascinating to consider the opportunities I have in Australia - however, I sometimes wonder what my life would have been like had I stayed in South Africa. As such, the question for my major work is to find whether it is better for an Afrikaner child to immigrate to Australia or to remain in South Africa. Any assistance you can provide in the form of ideas (posted here or on my blog) or through taking one of my Questionnaires (from my blog) and returning it to
