  1. I thought I'd share with other people who are heading over to Hobart in the next while some learnings about getting your rental application approved. It is really tough with up to 50 people swarming onto a good property at one time. We received 2 approvals and asked the agents why. This is what they had to say: Our references from the agent that sold our property in SA was good and was on a letterhead (they say they get scribbles on pieces of paper). We had photo's of our property that we we sold before coming over. It showed we took care of our property We had a pict
  2. Hi All, This is my first post to the forum. My wife and I have been pondering for a good few years (Since 2011) on whether we should pack up and go or stay and pray that things will get better in SA. Our first child was born in June 2017 and that forced us to have a longer term perspective and to reflect (yet again) on our life strategy and options. I am not going to go into all the reasons as to why we have come to this decision (those have been discussed ad nauseam in many threads), what is more important is that we have made the decision we are moving to Brisbane in
  3. Hi, Is it possible to apply for a visa to work in Australia with a BCOMPT Degree (Accounting Science Degree in Financial Accounting- CA Stream) I will be graduating in Mid 2019 and if so will i be able to get a job in the competitive job market?

    Teacher Immigration

    Hey everyone, I am in the starting process of immigrating to go work in Australia. I am as Aussies would call a Secondary Teacher and I am having difficulty figuring out where to start with my process. I do not have sufficient funds to travel to Australia on my own, so I need a school there to sponsor/nominate me? 1. Is it possible to be sponsored by a school? 2. If a school is able to sponsor me, what is my first step to being sponsored? 3. What Visa would I apply for to be sponsored? Kind regards Bianca
  5. Hi All, My wife and I have been chatting about various ways of speeding up the process. I would like to ask your opinions on taking out a personal loan in order to immigrate. Does anyone have first-hand experience or at least know anyone who has done it that way? I believe that we would still need an SA bank account with enough money to pay the debit orders each month. Our intention is to pay the loan off ASAP from Oz using AUS$. Our plan going forward is to save as much money as we can this year to pay for the admin stuff (IELTS, Medicals, My assessment
  6. Hi All, Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! My wife is a physiotherapist and I am an engineering technologist (Civil engineering: water). Are there any physio's out there that have done the assessment with AHPRA? We believe that it is a lengthy and expensive process - apparently, my wife would need to go to Aus for the second part of the process (Practicals) as well (my wife is currently researching the assessment and registration). We have therefore been advised to look at entering Aus on my occupation and my wife does temporary work (possibly as a physio

    Immigration Agents

    Hi I am looking into immigrating to Australia and would like to find a good agent to help us. Can anyone recommend a great one that they have used and that has secured a visa for them? Many thanks

    Long Road to Aus

    Anyone else on this forum who needs to complete their studies in order for their work experience to be recognised for the Skills Assessment? I've been a Business Analyst since November of 2007 and have done a few short courses but do not have a degree of any sort and I have been advised by a Migration Agent that I need to get an equivalent to an Advanced Diploma which I am currently busy with, for the last year. I honestly didn't think it was going to be as hard as it's been but I guess as the saying goes.... nothing good comes easy. So I thought it would be nice to make contact for
  9. Hi all, So our flights have been booked through IOM to Melbourne. So we fly into Sydney then catch a connecting flight 1:30 after landing. Will we make this domestic flight. We are traveling with 2 toddlers 3.5years old and luggage consisting of only clothes and a few electronics? Thanks a mil
  10. The Title just about says it all. Living in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, where the pace of life is relaxed and easy, I'm just wondering who is actually coming to this great part of Australia in the New Year???
  11. Hi Everyone, I was referred to this forum by a friend and I must say its lovely to see everyone helping one another! I am a Biokineticist, which apparently is an exercise physiologist in Auz. As a result of this, I will be the main applicant. However, I have to go through quite an accreditation process to be able to practice in AUZ. Does anyone know if this affects the likelihood of getting a positive skills assessment or affects the VISA application in anyway? I also have spoken to Reuven at migrate2oz and Andrew Kerr at network migration and they have both given us different

    Not to sure where to start?!?

    Hi Guys, I am new to this site, my manager passed this link to me. I am currently in AU and have been a citizen for 5 years. For me coming over was a no-brainer. I am working on getting my sister here. I know this is going to sound demented but I have no idea where to start :-S Here is a few questions I have: 1) I need to give her the pros and cons - only problem is I am so biased I cant give objective info - my biased is based on I LOVE AUSTRALIA and I miss my family so much (dont have no money for da visit) and will just about do anything to get them here. 2) I was already married for a 2 ye
  13. 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
  14. Well, my wife and I have now been in Canberra for a few weeks. We landed in Sydney on the 22nd of January, and drove through on the morning of the 23rd - with an incredibly early start owing to jetlag which after 11000km is no joke! I also highly recommend driving in to the ACT, it's a light drive (3 hours) and offers up beautiful scenery you would otherwise miss entirely. Upon arrival, we had set up to stay at the Ibis Canberra (old Formula 1) until the end of January, with a hire car until then too, to allow us time to settle in and find our roots. The key was to get employed, homed, and buy
  15. Hi again everyone Reading the posts on this forum really has been eye-opening. With my husband having an Aussie passport and citizenship, it's always been a possibility for us to emigrate, but with family planning their own move and an increase in close-to-home crime, it's really now becoming our reality. One of the things that my husband and I were talking about was the issue of adjusting to life outside of South Africa. We live well here - we don't want for much. Except, of course, for peace of mind in terms of our children's freedom and safety in their own country. And that, at this sta
  16. Hi there Ozies and future Ozies, We are a family of 4 and wanting to move to Australia from South Africa. Just wanting to know if anyone has any tips and steps on how to go about doing this and applying etc. All the help we can get will be much appreciated!

    Living the dream.

    I was asked again today, why Maroochydore so I figured I would post my thoughts on this process and how we got to choose the place we did. So far, after receiving the visa, we have changed or plans and final destination 3 times for various reasons. This has made me realise that no matter how well you plan things they have a way of changing and making you rethink your priorities. We got to the point where we asked ourselves "what is our main motivation for emigrating to Australia?" Although there were several reasons, the one that cropped up the most was our child, her future and safety. This
  18. hello, I am currently based (stuck, it seems) in South Africa, and in recent months there have been certain personal developments (I have met an Australian woman) that basically have me really, really wanting to get to Australia, and on a longer basis than a tourist visa would allow. I have two big problems: I have never completed my schooling, leaving with a standard 7 (grade 9) certificate, and I've been doing menial jobs ever since, therefore I don't have what could be considered an appreciated skill. Perhaps the only thing that might be a mitigating factor is that I more or less know how t
  19. Hi, I'm currently a student, looking to immigrate to Australia. What I would like to do, is go over and get a job on a Working Holiday Visa, to help me establish myself at first. Then later on apply for for a permanent resident and after a few years get my citizenship. Is this the correct way of doing this and at all possible? If not, is there a similar way? I would really appreciate some guidance, as I'm totally lost. Note: I'm currently studying for a few certifications to get a job and will continue to study later on in Australia to get my degree. I would first like to settle in and have a
  20. Hi My fiancé and I are just starting our visa application process and are wanting to get an immigration agent to assist us but have heard some borrow stories and want someone who we can trust. Could anybody suggest a good agency to work through and give us an idea of what the total cost would be? Thanks
  21. 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
