So far as i know if there name is on the visa then they must touch Ozzie soil within 12 months.
hello sharon and welcome to pia
yep, everyone has to validate their visa in the time given!!!
Hi Matt, thanks for your reply, I was kind of hoping that wasn't the case oh well if we end up having a reccie before actually moving it will be an expensive one, thanks Sharon.

Reason: Missed name off first time
Hi Mozzy, thanks for your reply, sorry its taken me so lond to reply, oh well if we do it that way it will be an expensive holiday, thanks again Sharon.
Yep everyone has to touch Oz soil to activate the visa in their passport within 12 months. They don't all have to turn up at the same time but as far as I understand it the main applicant must arrive there first.
well, chat as little or as much as you like!
you don't really have to reply to every post but it helps making friends :D
well, i wouldn't call it fasttrack really - but oh's job IS on the modl list so i guess you mean that! - and it's HIS skill that's in demand. apparently i am skilless ('only' looking after our kids and running a household and keeping everyone happy ... so what does that count, eh?!) - but i intend to find some work once the kids are old enough to go to school!
as to where to settle that's another trickquestion really. we haven't even been to adelaide just yet!!! but so far we tend more to the northeast .. but hohum what do we know. maybe we don't like it once we actually see it and join all the others in the south
shippers is no topic for us just yet! we haven't even got a visa!!!! - we'll have our medicals in a week so we are getting there!
we are still discussing what to take really .... take it all? take half? take nothing (only personal as such)?
decisions decisons ...
so how far into this all are you?!?
