Hey,

 

Just wanted to say a quick Hi! Myself and my OH are at the starting line for our application for Oz. We have decided (with a little encouragement from the SMPs ;)) that Adelaide is the place to be!

 

We have hired an agent and in the process of getting OH stuff together for skills assessment!

 

Really sociable and hoping to make a few friends before we get out there to ease the pressure. Been having a little wonder around forums and everyone here seems lovely and helpful, even more than PIO!

 

Hope to get chatting with you all soon!:chatterbox:

Thanks guys!

 

Hey Cara, Thanks for recommendation on Friday night. This site looks much more helpful. Feel like I don't want to sink my teeth in to Adelaide too much yet in case it all changes.

 

Brian has been working on his skills assessment this weekend but I'm sure you can sympathise when I say i feel like his mum/schoool teacher telling him to get on with it. I'd do it myself but computer talk may as well be Manderin to me! Will be pushing him to get to the next bit this week.

Oh yes I can sympathise lol it was like trying to get a school kid to do their homework, or like trying to push a really heavy bolder uphill (although I think that would have been easier :biglaugh:) Good luck with the task ahead, and I dont mean the skills assessment lol

 

Thought you'd like this site, but like you say its hard to get too into it as you're a bit against time, but I'm sure you will be OK just keep at it.

Welcome Jade!

 

You're 100% correct! Everybody on this forum is so helpful. They take you through all the hi's and lows of the process as you progress.

Although I am a South African, I immediately felt at home, as one member said that it did not matter where I am from, but where I am heading!

 

Good luck with the process! Any mountain can crumble when broken down piece by piece...

Dosent matter how silly you may think it is as i am sure most of us have thought the same things :-) there is always someone on here that can help you.

OH has just been commenting on how it's mainly women in here! Lol

 

I told him it's probably because it's mainly the girls that get things done and find out what needs doing and told him to get on with writing his references for his SA and stop procrastinating!!! Lol

 

Sorry to all you useful proactive male members lol

 

Hope you've all had a nice evening. I've been sat in front in PC all night :-( Bring on some sun! X

How exciting. You must be scared, worried, excited, sad, apprehensive, overwhelmed etc! The last few weeks were the worst for my mum. Really just wanted to get there and get started but the thought of leaving everyone behind really hits home.

 

Where is hampshire do u live? I was born in Poole, went to uni in Portsmouth and now live near Worthing. Working my way along the coast x

      Hi! 
      I'm Flora, I recently moved to Adelaide to study but being a bit older than the average student I'm finding it hard to meet people. Would anyone be up for drinks? I had a look and couldn't see any recent posts about a meet up.

      We have recently moved back to Adelaide after 17 years in America. We have a 17 & 19 year old and would love to meet other expats with late teens that have moved to Adelaide.  Let me know if this is you! Thanks Kym

      Hello Forum..
      This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. 
      Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind.
      Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during:
      the application process  after grant is received pre-landing preparations  post landing  experiences and lessons learnt  
      This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it 
       
      Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others!  God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.
