18-05-2011 VISA GRANT!
Moving to Adelaide....SOON!!
Sorry I was using my phone before and its hard work ,here's a question about the one rule I asked on poms in oz
And here's a link showing how they work out the import duty ,although its for another state ,but it show's they don't just guess or take your word for it.
How will they check or verify that it's been in your posession for 12 months?
Will a sale contract for example of a dealer be enough? Or do the regopapers have to be in your name?

We have sort of messed up,or we are being a bit gready i'm not sure,but we are wanting to take the 2 old scooter's our camper and another car,which we only bought in may this year ,well we bought it in feburary but it never arrived till may ,so we can't fly out till next may ,as if we do we can't take the car ,but at the time we never thought we would get our visa so quick .
We are starting to think ,sell the car as its holding everthing up,well that and the fact we haven't sold our house,ive not sent in the docs for the import licence,as we need to prove were staying which means proof of a bank account, medicare or other things we haven't done yet,its all hard work.
Don't know how far you have got with this but you couldn't reuse the old tyres or import them once you arrive. Any tyres not on rims have to be disinfected with methyl bromide (not used in Europe)

We used the emails from our landlord in Aus, we had an ANZ bank account which we had already validated and a copy of my passport for the 100 points. As you can see we did this from over here also and it wasn't easy.
You may get away with two vehicles as it per adult not per family. Depends whether the scooters are pre 1989. If so you are in with a chance.
I submitted my UK passport, V5 at the beginning of the process. They wrote back and asked for proof for the remaining 75 points.
