    we are hoping to move to adelaide later this year we are just waiting for our paperwork to come through for our medicals and police checks have been waiting since last october its starting to get to me now but hopefully wont be long !! we are nearly there .

    we have never been to adelaide it looks lovely a great place to bring up a family , is it really as good as it looks any advice on anything would be great.

    hi Louise

    Welcome to PIA.

    What visa are you applying for/ trade do you have?

     

    I am a nurse waiting for meds and police checks to arrive in Sydney and for Case Officer to be allocated.

    Good luck with it all

    Hi Louise, im Silv my family and i emigrated to Adelaide 2 years ago, make sure your really focussed we did`nt find it easy being away from everything we know and everybody we knew ,but your doing it for a new life so hold in there, tell you the truth i`ve never been so scared. But yes Adelaide is beatiful why do you think were going back.But thankfully our removal firm said were not the only people who does that there are loads that they ship back so i don`t feel such a prat now.We wish you all the best hope to see you there. Silv

    Hi Louise, welcome

    The wait is the hardest part, I just feel my whole life here is on hold.

    We've had the meds done but are waiting on results from blood tests before they can send everthing off.

    Hang in there and if you get fraustrated this is a great place to vent some rage :arghh:

    Oh Louise I think it's worse than waiting on a baby, at least when your pregnant you know it can be a few weeks either side of the date

     

    I wish we had a rough date so when could make plans :sad:

    The medicals are eyes, ears, height, weight etc and your medical history eg operations you've had. No big deal, although saying that we don't know yet if we have passed them :goofy:

    Good luck with the whole thing

    I have 2 uncles in Adelaide, 1 in Salisbury and 1 in Salisbury Heights so are thinking of staying near them for a while until we find our feet. I know Salisbury can apparently be a bit rough but a least it's a starting point

    :jiggy:hi louise, i thought the worst bit was waiting for the visa, the feeling was indiscribable, youll know what i mean when you get yours, but the worst for me is getting the house on the market, i keep finding something else to do !!!! today weve been clearing out all the cubboards, trouble is everything i take out the kids put back in:arghh:

     

    hopefully put it on in the next two weeks (then hope for a quick sale) luke has his exams in june so any time after then we are free to go, we also have to visit andrews mum in spain before we go, any excuse for an extra holiday, , have you heard anything yet??
