    That's the medical booked for 4th December 2015 so will need to get on now and do the online police check. Becks I haven't done the aprha yet just sorting everything out. I didn't realise all the documents I sent to ANMAC wasn't forwarded onto aprha so having to get them all signed again! For the police check for visa I was told to you however when I looked into the aprha they use a different company for police checks - what did you do?? Kyliedonut - we aren't actually ready to move until pete finishes his nurse training next aug/sept so this has come around way to quickly for us!! but so excited that the end is near!! Im a mental health nurse and so will pete be. Have to say we are both buzzing right now with excited and now panic!! Just need to got on with aprha for me initially as pete will have to wait until he gets his pin number. Any advice would be appreciated. Did you send the original documents of the syllabus and certificate of qualification?? Good luck to you both too.

    Got an email today to say we have been allocated a case officer. Really didn't expect it so quickly as the money didn't come out of our account that long ago (5th November!). Rush on now to get medicals and police check !

    We feel we are so close. The immigration agents expects it will be granted early next year. Just need to wait for them to let us know when to get police and medical checks. Trying to be patient but it's hard!! Really want to be over this time next year.

  8. Hello - meet up anyone ??

    It's good to hear other people's experience. Our girls talk about moving all the time but not sure they understand the enormity of it all. As you say time will tell. Xx
  9. Hello - meet up anyone ??

    Hi Snifter, We visited Aldinga when we were over and were luck as our friends have a house there to rent short term. Its all ready to move in and with no hassle with references etc. As you say Aldinga is a bit of a drive from Adelaide but short term we don't mind. At moment our ideal situation would be to get work in Noarlunga, and live there, Willunga or McLaren vale however time will tell if this is where we settle. So many unknowns....However I have to say advice from people like yourself is absolutely invaluable:biggrin: Cheers Petea and Niccy

  13. Hello - meet up anyone ??

    Hi Emma can I ask how yours kids are settling in. My girls are the same age at the moment as yours. We plan to move in a year so girls will be 5 & 9. I'm anxious about how easy it is for them to settle in to a different lifestyle and going to a new school. Thanks niccy
