I am a music teacher and singer we live on the south side of the city near Marion which I find gives me easy access to schools (for work) and public transport (for travel to shows and events in town). I currently direct a couple of singing groups and sing in a couple of quartet's which keeps me out and about and performing regularly. There are lots of great music events here as well as a good range of singing groups of various styles, everything from Gilbert and Sullivan to barbershop! I also teach private pupils from home one evening a week. They love their bits of paper here so be prepared to jump hoops to get approved for working in schools. The process can take a while and you will need to attend a couple of training courses as well as the usual police and qualifications check. Best of luck enjoy the ride :)
Sorry for my ignorance - what is a PR visa? I was told I go out oh his and can work if I need to? All new to me
The visa will be either temporary, TR or permanent, PR. Which one it is can make a huge difference. If it's temporary I'd be pushing for PR asap as you have far more rights and able to remain in Aus should the job end rather than having to find another sponsor. What visa number is it you are applying for?
Op said they are applying for 457
Yes 457 - he has just received his full job offer/contract and all the info regarding our relocation package etc yesterday.
There are a few things we need clarifying and possibly 'tweaking' but looks like it's all happening. We have to set up a bank account too ... another thing we haven't a clue with?
So, location for living will either be Adelaide with him commuting from Whyalla each week or maybe Port Loncoln? We've seen parts of Adelaide when we had 1 day to ourselves on our visit, but not Port Lincoln?
Has anyone been to give me any more advice on it?
So many questions sorry ... oh. and our house should be going on the market in the next week hopefully!
At the risk of offending anyone on the West Coast, I think Port Lincoln is a lovely place for a holiday, but you have to be a local to enjoy living there.
Having said that, I have friends who wanted to get away from "the rat race" in Adelaide and live there happily. It is a large town, a long way to drive from Adelaide and flights are expensive.
I also know some people who enjoy living in Whyalla, and have made a career move there. If you don't want to live in a large city, then maybe look there.
It is all very exciting for you at the moment, but are you sure you want to sell your house, especially with adult children still in UK?
Well an update ... looks like it's Whyalla for me for a while and not Adelaide yet.
House went on the market 2 weeks ago and has sold straight away to cash buyers, so looks like I'm gonna be moving with my Hubby now early Feb.
Its mad here ...
Can anyone help re Medical Records? Do we have to request and bring them?
No, you don't have to bring them. If you have something complicated you might want to consider it though.
I like whyalla. My sister in law lives there. :-)
Is a mummy!
