Hi, we have contacted the SA immigration dept regarding on arrival services and temporary council accommodation on arrival in Adelaide, they will not provide this as we are travelling on a 457 visa, anybody else come across this and what did you do.
My wife and I travel to Aus next week on a 457 visa, we to are not entitled to OAA but alowed the meet and greet service which we have taken up, we have booked in a hotel for a couple of nights and then in a holiday villa for a couple of weeks and hopefully in that time we can secure a longer term rental.
Hope every thing goes o/k for your selves.

The price depends somewhat on the term but to give you an idea, the three bedroom houses range from $490 and $690 per week for a 3 month term.
See www.realestateowners.net.au . Not all of the properties on there are mine but the ones I look after all have my email email@example.com as the contact,
Will have a look on the website and discuss it with my wife but we are interested in this as an option for 3 months maybe 6 if its right for us. Thanks.
We are flying with Emirates, booked the flights through Trailfinders, have booked a few times before with them and always found them very helpfull.
I don't know if this will help you but if you were looking to rent longer term then we are moving out of a rental in South Plympton middle of July - we arranged a rental for a year from Dec.08 (to secure the rental) but have now bought a house in Somerton Park, the rental is $410/week (not cheap I know) but it's a large 4 bed,2 bathroom property in a nice close, good neighbours and convenient for most places. Hope this may be of interest for you,
Has anyone tried the gumtree website - they seem to have places to rent. Do you have to go through the rental agencies or do people advertise in the local papers generally for places to rent. We own our own house here in Ireland and don't have a rental reference :-(
Hi we to are arriving 31st Aug and looking for temp furnished accomodation, Is the place furnished? I emailed OAA heard nothing back so lookin for some where with reasonable priced rent until OH gets settled in employment.
