24 hours in and wanted to brag

HUBI and I arrived in adelaide last night, from London. Call it jet lag but I just wanted to say hello. We are staying near Hutt Street for 6 or so weeks until the shipping container arrives. It took months to get everything organised, house let, packing, flights booked, the kitten injected and his flights booked, etc etc. and now it is like the reverse needs doing, discover the area, find a rental, make new friends, find a Virgin Active equivalent gym. The HUBI starts his new job Wednesday, so if anyone would like to meet up, just yell.

 

About us: professional couple. No kids. Late 30s/Early 40s. Love to travel.

What's a HUBI? Google tells me it's a cross-platform streaming application, but I'm unsure whether someone would value an application that much to include it in a post.

 

Welcome anyway. Enjoy the city life, great location.

Hutt St is great - we stayed there when we first arrived - hopefully the free bus still goes down there for getting into the city. Cafe at the cross section with Wakefield St(?) is good too!

....although he may have a hidden talent as a cross platform streaming application. We have discovered new skills within each other, these last few months:err:

Keep in touch guys, you are in a very similar position to myself and my wife although we are a few months behind you. We are also professional couple circa 40 with no kids and also love to travel. We are across in September to sit down with a financial advisor, view some properties hopefully and meet up with some employment agents to test the water regarding jobs for myself and my wife.

Best of luck with settling in, keep in touch and just a little jealous!:wink:

      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.

      Hi Guys,
      Well by God's grace things seem to be progressing well and hopefully if we clear our Health Check then we seem to inch closer in acquiring a 489 Visa  and considering it would take 5 to 6 months i.e. May - June we should have our visa in our hand. If things go as per plan then we intend doing our landing in Sept - Oct 2018 but I have many queries on how to go about it? 
      We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 and 4)
      which suburb in Adelaide do we decide to live in and what should be the criteria while choosing a suburb ? (close proximity to the city, schools, public transport etc) considering that there wont be any income when we reach, what is the monthly outgoing should we expect? We plan to rent  2 bedroom apartment / house. can my children get admissions in a government school? ( i know it wont be free as I am on a 489 visa) and what would the fee structure be like? (Grade 6 and Grade 1) what is the best way to scout for jobs? appreciate if anyone can share a template of CV's that are normally followed. are rental properties normally furnished or unfurnished?  can we get a short term rental where we can be flexible to move out once we decide on the suburb we want to live in? I would also appreciate any additional info that you think can be useful, like from your own experiences, lessons learnt, do's and don'ts etc.
       
      Thank you.
