    Guest The Wise Family

    Just like to say hello to everyone. We are the Wise family, Gina, Ian, Georgia 13, Ria 11, and William 10 and hoping to move to adelaide end of april beginning of may. (If we ever sell our house!) We have applied for our visa, had the medicals done which arrived at LCU on christmas eve, and downloaded our police checks so now just waiting and trying to be patience.

    Welcome to PIA,

     

    We are in a very similar position to you guys as regarding timeline. Hope the house selling goes well. Ours isn't even on the market yet but not in any rush. We will rent it out if we don't sell it before deparure date (not set yet).

     

    Keep us updated

     

    Pete

    Thanks. Look forward to all your good advice. I might need some good advice on shipping our 9 year old labrador which I am already worrying about. We would like to go to some meet ups but they all seem so far away at the moment. Does anyone live near or not far from Milton Keynes?Gina x

    How funny you dont come across too many Gina's nowadays. Where abouts in adelaide are you? We have a viewing on our house as we speak. First one of the year and bound to be time wasters! Oh well. Here's hoping!! Gina x

    Welcome to PIA Dent Family,

     

    We used an agent so they did everything for us, but others done it by themselves, I'm sure you'll hear from them shortly to give you advice on where to start.

     

    Good Luck and again Welcome aboard.

    Hi,

    You have taken the best first step to Adelaide by joining this site, it has help me to get a visa without an agent.

    The first thing you need to do is get your skills assessed by TRA, go to this site

    http://www.workplace.gov.au/workplace/Programmes/TRA/1SkillsassessmentforpeopleintendingtomigratetoAustralia.htm

    and take your time reading all the info, when you fill out the forms give as much information as possible and make sure your training and experience covers all the duties expected of a landscape gardener in Australia.

    You also have to know which visa your applying for to know what the next stage will be after TRA but getting a positive skill assessment is first step and you can not move on until you have this.

    Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to pm me and i will try to help.

     

    Simon
