If so, if you've not already done so, feel free to sign up and account to the forum and say hello to us all Make use of this thread to say hello on and introduce yourself if you'd rather. You are more than welcome to start your own thread too.
Its been good to see a few new members sign up and introduce themselves the past few weeks. Migration numbers are on the slower side in general to Australia atm though
Some are planning the move this year, others in the process of applying for their visa. Doesn't matter if you are just at the start of your visa application or about to arrive in Australia or already here, always good to hear from you
If you've questions about the visa processes we have the Migration section here http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/migration-issues/ Also past topics may provide you the information you are after so feel free to make use of the forum search feature.
We also have some information threads on various sections of the forum
* Suburbs (an ongoing section of the forum), renting and real estate and also rentals available including short term fully furnished homes for those new arrivals who need a base for the first few weeks. You can find all those things here http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/suburbs-property/
* A For The Kids forum where there is a thread covering schools information for primary and high school and also an activities thread. We also try to post an activity list each school holiday of things to do with the kids. You can find most of these at the top of the For The Kids forum as sticky threads http://www.pomsinadelaide.com/forum/kids-down-under/
Then we've got a handy For Sale/Wanted forum where people can list items to give away, buy or sell. For new arrivals it can be a great way to pick up a few items or for those having a spring clean or a move on the cards, a good way to sell stuff.
Plus lots more to provide plenty of reading :) Not everything is going to be happy reading and there is no denying that some fields of work are struggling so of course making the move is not without risk. However there is always an element of risk when migrating, be it from leaving loved ones and your home or trying to secure work in a new country to navigating the new rules and regulations or finding a suitable place to call home. If you really want to migrate, then this forum will hopefully provide you with information, feedback from those already here and so on to help you decide if its the right thing for you at this time. If you've already migrated, then the forum will hopefully provide other things for you :)
So, stop by, say hello, make use of the forum information resource and get to know others.
