    Hello everyone,

     

    My name's Louise and hubby is Steve, we have 2 children and currently live in Spain. We are right at the start of the process. We have done a points test and fall short of 120 but enough for an SIR visa so will need some professional advice from an agent with that one!!

     

    We have done a lot of research and Adelaide seems the best place for us. We are looking at going within 18-24 months.

     

    Just want to make friends with people in the same boat really to share the experience with.

     

    Looking forward to getting to know you all!

     

    Louise

    Hi Louise, Steve and family,

    Welcome to the forum, we are currently in France and have started the visa process, everyone on PIA have been really friendly, and very helpful with questions I have asked I'm sure you'll find the same too.

    Good luck with your visa journey

     

    Regards

    Hi Louise and Steve,

    Ta for the reply. We have put our property on the market as we need to sell before we leave for Adelaide. Never been before, did a trip to Sydney and Perth 20 years ago. Possibly doing a reccie trip this Oct or OH may go out in the next few weeks.

    We hope to be out there this time next year - fingers crossed 8)

    When are you hoping to go out and have you ever been? What made you choose Adelaide?

    Good luck

    Janet

    Hi Louise and Steve,

     

    Welcome to the forum. We are Jen & Ian. We have three boys aged 5, 2 and 7 months. We are nearing the end of getting our visa and planning on moving out to Adelaide in October. At times along this journey you will feel it's taking forever but right now I'm thinking oh my god where did the 8 months from sending of our application go :shock: .

     

    Good luck

    Jen :D

    Best of luck for the journey ahead - full of ups and downs but worth it all in the end.

    Hi People

     

    We've been in Adelaide for 4 months now. What can I say the place is evreything I hoped for. Big enough to have everything I want but not too big. The city is beautiful and clean. The people are friendly and understand the difficulties faced by by new mirants. The beaches are clean, safe and uncrowded. The hills are a short drive away and are very senic with loads of vinyards, orchards and lovely little villages. And for those on a budget housing is cheaper than in any other major Australian city.

    I've been to Perth and Melbourne. OH used to live in Sydney and none compare to Adelaide.

    Thank you everyone for your posts..you're all so lovely and welcoming. It's reassuring to know that we're not going it alone.

    Liz we will also be going on an SIR visa which we were a little worried about at first, but it seems many other people do it successfuly. We initialy chose Adelaide because of this visa but researching the place it seems a great place to bring up children and perfect weather too..not as hot as Perth!

    hello lou and steve!

    it's rather daunting the whole process, eh?! but a good thrill too :wink:

     

    we also just started with application and research and thinking and oohing and aahing .. but adelaide it will be for us too.

     

    we have 2 small kids (3 and 1.5) and all we read about adelaide so far sounds great for families! we haven't been there yet and we are still debating if we should spend money on a reccie first or jump right in :lol:

     

    good luck

    Susi
