    Hi Dave,

     

    Were are in a similar boat. Im traveling first then Macky and Aaron will follow in 3 weeks. I need to be over soon, I need to start work, uni, and sort our new house build out.

     

    Just looking through things, we need to sort medicare out and get tax no.s (been told you can do this online).

     

    Have you got any consessions for cost and baggage allowance with emigrating?

     

    Im just looking for flights now, I should get our visas back next fri hopefully.

    Hi Mark,

    The company that have given me a job are paying for my flights I have booked it all through Travelmood and going on Singapore airlines if you email scott.mercer@travelmood.com i found him very good and helpfull.

    I could only get 20kg baggage allowance because my visa is a 457 temporary for 4 years if you have a permanent visa you can take 40kg.

    Good luck Dave.

    Don't panic too much about tax file numbers and medicare (think you have to be here to get them anyway) It takes 5 mins each to register with them....no probs. There are medicare offices in all the big shopping centres and you're covered by showing your passport for medical treatment even if you haven't registered....Taxfile numbers are easy too but i'm pretty sure you need an address in australia before you can get either....Cheers Fiona

    p.s. if you phone up Singapore Airlines beforehand they can and will(depending on who you get on the phone) give you a greater baggage allowance...otherwise it's £27 per kilo excess baggage....careful that soon adds up!!
