Thought I'd post here as this is one of the friendliest forums ive found and until lists changed in July we were headed for Adelaide! Now having to apply to ACT. About to apply for ss and they want to see proof of hard cash in bank accounts. We have £65-70k equity in our house and this will fund our dream. Now we have been presented with this huge hurdle that looks fairly impossible to vault but I've never read about any one else having this problem? Surely I'm not the only person looking to emigrate without £30,000+ lolling about in a bank account (I wish!). How on earth do you get round this? I'm not prepared to move until we've sold our home and I'm not prepared to sell it until I have a guaranteed visa. Any advice greatly appreciated before I succumb to a complete meltdown!
