Its takes approx 8 weeks for a container to arrive at port in Adelaide. Also you are supposed to arrive before the container so you can be there if any problems crop up.
We booked our flights (in Aug 06 for Jan 07) before i had applied for my defacto visa (Oct 06) which should have taken 4-6 weeks. (Partner already had his visa)
But it was a close thing due to a medical condition and could have taken extra time (4-6 weeks extra) if visa application had to be sent to Sydney instead of London, but luckily it was processed very quick (nine days).
Very stressful, but all good in the end
Okay thats interesting, not realised that . Thanks everyone for your input..good advice and cant wait until it becomes a reality.
