  1. Hello everyone ! Quick background: I am 22 , I am in final year BCOM LLB (5 year degree) in SA at NMMU (Port Elizabeth), I have no work experience, I am wanting to be admitted in Queensland as a solicitor. I only have the green mamba ( SA passport ) I am aware of the massive costs involved , my parents and my sister who lives in Brisbane as a permanent resident are helping me out with finances. So its clear that step 1 is get your degree assessed at the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board -Queensland which will tell me I have to take some subjects to recognize my South African LLB qualification. Those subjects are always: Equity, Federal State and Constitutional law, Property and maybe Administrative law and Torts. After I have done the conversion and my PLT I intend to apply for permanent residence through the skills list or state sponsored option. However.... After months of research I am still stuck and desperately need the answers to the following questions, any one out there that can help ? 1) the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board -Queensland (LPAB) said that I cannot get my degree assessed even provisionally until I have finished my qualification. Is there anyone who knows already what 'extra subjects' I may be required to do besides the 4 above has anyone ever been required to do torts ? 2)Several Universities seem to offer the modules I need as non-award subjects and as part of a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice . I still don't understand what this means? Does it mean that the non award subjects will allow me to be recognized to be admitted as a solicitor? 3)If I do non award subjects can I use the non- award visa even though it is counting towards a eventual qualification? 4)Any tips on how to do this in the fastest way possible ? 5)Any realistic options for funding ? Really any advice at all actually Thanks !!

    Let’s get going

    Good day we are in the process of finalising visa applications, but we already have a signed job offer so it is jusy a matter of time. My concern is the salary. I will not be working at first and my husband is on a package of 175k per year plus perks totalling 320 including 30k super. Is this enough to live well in Rockhampton on the Capricorn coast? I have looked at some of the budgets online here but still cannot get a feel for what is a good income for 2 people. I understand it depends a number of factors and I am prepared to take a lifestyle knock but I am just not sure how rough it will be.
  3. Hi all Im new on here and this is my first post. If all goes well we should arrive in Brisbane Dec2017 or Jan2018 (just waiting on the 457visa lodged early October 2017) I am having troubke finding out if state school would be free for my 7year old son or if we woukd need to pay. It seems that in some states you need to pay but i cant find anything specific for Queensland state. Could anybody please advise? As mentioned we will be on 457 work visa and not PR visa.
  4. Hi All Do any of you live or know anybody that has settled in the above mentioned areas in the title. Any feedback good or bad will be appreciated. Also we are looking to send my 7year old son to a state school in one of these areas next year.
  5. At this stage our plan is to end up in Brisbane, mostly because we have a very good friend that we met on Contiki a couple of years ago that is willing to take us in for the first month or two. So far I really like Mango Hill, what other suburbs can you guys recommend?
  6. Is anyone relocating from the Cape Town area to Queensland, Australia. I immigrated few years ago and having just sold my house have about 2 Cubic meters of hobby items that I need to find some space to bring over. I can also provide a lot of common sense advice having been through the process. Thanks in advance for any offers.

    Living in Gladstone?

    Hello everyone! My name is Brady Albrand and I am a PhD student at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba. I am looking for South Africans living in Gladstone to interview for my PhD project, which examines the migration experiences of South African migrants in regional Queensland. I will be in Gladstone from Thursday 22 October until 2-3 November, if you know of anyone who might be interested, please pass this along! Any help is greatly appreciated! Participation would involve an informal one-on-one discussion, and I’m happy to provide further details before we meet. Interested persons need to identify as being of South African background, have lived in Australia for a minimum of two years and be at least 25 years old. If you would like to participate, or would like more information, please feel free to contact me. Brady Albrand
  8. Hi all, We are coming for a holiday to Australia and the purpose of our holiday will also be to find suitable areas for us to live in Australia. Please help with any recommendations of areas we can go visit and experience while we are on holiday. We will be road tripping all along the Queensland coast and some areas inland. We love trees, tropical plants, the sea, farming, cycling our kids to school, a good sense of community and reasonable proximity to Brisbane city (50 - 200km). To summarise: - Small to medium farms or otherwise large properties (+- acreage) available - Accessibility to the sea: either at the sea or otherwise up to an 45min from the sea - Good primary school and possibly high school also - Accessibility to basic shopping facilities up to 20km radius - Vibrant and caring community - Distance to Brisbane CBD +- 50km to 200km - Accessibility to public transport if possible - Many trees, tropical plants and trees if possible I know this is asking for a lot but any suggestions of areas to be considered will be of great use. Thanks in advance! Kind Regards, Peter
  9. Please could we have some of your opinions and views and advice on this Visa? as well as on QLD. Hubby is a carpenter and site supervisor, writing his English test on 10 January and hopefully the VETASSESS interview early February. He turns 40 in April and will then lose 10 points so there is a big push to get everything in before then. (most documents have already been compiled and submitted to the agents so we are all good there) We have signed up with an agent, who has advised that we apply for a 489 Skilled State Nominated Provisional Visa. Currently the state offering sponsorship for carpenters in terms of their SMP is Queensland. (We were hoping for WA, but have since been researching QLD and it looks amazing!) Anyone in a trade living in QLD? If so, please could you share with us! We are wondering if this is the best/right Visa to go for? (we have researched the facts on immi, but want some peoples opinions on this) Honestly, we are concerned about not being able to live or work in the main cities. What if we can't find a job in a regional area. . . it just seems like we are minimising our opportunities? Hubby says that QLD would not be sponsoring a 489 provisional visa for carpenters if there was not a demand for carpentry/site supervisor jobs in those areas - would you say this is correct? And that finding a carpentry job would be easy-ish? (decking, kitchens, pergolas, BIC's etc etc) If anyone has any info, advice, opinions etc on this VISA, as well as on trades in QLD and life in general in QLD, we would REALLY appreciate it!! Thank you :-)
  10. Good day, I arrived in Brisbane about 3 weeks ago and are loving it. I realised that I have underestimated the weather and need to get 1 or 2 boxes send over with a few things. Therefore if anyone is sending a container over from Cape Town to Brisbane and has space for 1 or 2 boxes (+/- size: 39x43x52 cm), could you please contact me? I would contribute to your costs. Thank you. Liezel

    Phenomenal Noosa (Photos)

    For those of you wanting a life by the sea without the clubs and surfers (somewhat like Knysna, I would think), Noosa is it. Here are a few pictures of our morning hike (free, by the way) along the Coastal Trail of the Noosa National Park - Headlands Area) Boiling Point Tea Tree Bay HEOJJ at Dolphin Point Granite Bay Alexandria Bay North... and South Laguna Bay
  14. Much to my surprise and delight, I have had to enroll my now 4 year old for prep 2014. All of the state schools in our area are controlled by the Queensland Enrollment Management Plan; that is you have to live in the right catchment area. This may even boil down to the right address in the right street, they can even look up the number of the house to tell you if you are eligible or not. Registration for prep & high school for 2014 opened on 01 March! So to ensure that my little one secures one of the 90 places at the school that we favour (and which by our own stupidity is in a different catchment area) he has now been enrolled for 2014. (We transferred his older brother to the same school about 3 weeks ago but that is a different story) Good luck to all the parents out there hoping to find a place at the school that is right for your child!
  15. 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 stable job to pay for my expenses. Any help would greatly be appreciated! Kind Regards

    Info pack for QLD or NSW?

    Hi Africancowgirl and others have mentioned that they got an info-pack for ACT detailing all kinds of information that new migrants might need. Does anyone know whether the other states have similar packs available and where I can get them from? We are planning to settle in Far north NSW near the QLD border, so I might need info for both states Thank you!
