    trouble securing a rental

    We arranged a rental from the UK, But we had to pay 6 months rental up front. We also used google earth streetview to do a bit of looking around the street.
  5. Tassimo Coffee Maker If you have one sell it before you leave the UK. Although it will work over here you can't buy the pods. As for HP Inkjet printers either bring a spare set of genuine cartridges and keep getting them refilled or get rid of your printer before leaving UK AND buy an aussie one. HP's website will say you can buy aussie cartridges and phone hp support who will talk you through the steps to change the region coding, but if you have cartridges which are not genuine HP then the process will not work as unlock code generated by a long complex process will be invalid. I know this from experience. My UK printer which printed and scanned fine on refilled UK cartridges is after an hour and a half on the phone to HP support now just a large paperweight.

    Breach of the Peace

    Hi Elizabeth I also had the unfortunate fate of being done for breach of the police after celebrating a friends birthday over enthusiastacaly. It will be recorded on your OH's Criminal record but as it is a minor offence should not affect your Visa prospects especialy if it is the only blemish. Good luck with your application. Alan

    Hi Claire We only put down what we had and could prove we had. I think they are looking to see that you will have at least the minimum funds they mention on the SS app notes, If memory serves me right that means $25000 for the main applicant and $5000 for each dependant, Alan

    Why choose Adelaide?

    Hi Paula In our case we like a mediteranian climate, Therefore Darwin and Cairns to humid, also Sydney too expensive, Brisbane maybe a little too humid and expensive, perth too far away from the other major Oz cities, Melbourne probably as wet as scotland. Adelaide has a mediteranian like climate and is fairly small for a capital city ( which suits us personally)but there is still lots going on. Upon researching a little further it has a good education system, Houses are a bit cheaper than in other parts of Oz This was our starting point. Easter 2009 went for a holiday and it was everything we expected and more. Loved it. came back determined to make it work, and it has been very hard work at times. That is why we chose adelaide over the othe cities but everyone is different Alan
