    :shock: Hi sarha thanks for that what stage are you at we go for meds next week. how come you have to pay bond are you like me to old at 38 was gutted when I was told that- because that was five points less so we had the option to do the $100.000 bond the only thing wrong is it takes a lot of your bying power away when you see a house you like.

    once again thanks for the reply and hope to see you in the land of OZ yours alan and laura. :lol: :D

    Is this bond just a SA thing? we never had to pay it nor were we ever asked to.

     

    Maybe it was because my husband had a job to come to, actually all our paperwork was done by his employers, it was them who applied to DIMIA for permission to employ someone from overseas.

    It is to do with acquiring enough points from DIMIA to be eligible for a visa - Nothing to do with SA.

     

    You get 5 points towards your total if you invest the money in Australia so for many this is the way to reach the points needed to apply.

    Yes, we just needed the 5 extra points. However, we do get the bond back with interest after 12months. Also, it may help us by not just buying the first thing we see - at least this way we will have a good look at all the suburbs before rushing into anything.........

     

    We have just lodged our visa with Dima and going to go for our medicals (unrequested) in mid Jan - cant book yet as our doctors diary for 2007 isnt open!!

     

    Speak soon

    Hi Al and Laura

     

    Yes, luckily our doctors is on the list of panel doctors and we have now booked for the 9th December and are having our xrays next thursday.

     

    We have sold our house and moving out on jan 4th so we are able to go once we get our visa. However, we have decided to go 1st week of July, for various reasons....our children will be able to finish their year (more or less, they dont do anything productive the last couple of weeks in july anyway) also, thats when the lease is up on our rented accomodation and also my hubbys new job is a 6 month contract from jan....so it all ties in..........

     

    Looking forward to booking our flights now - going to do it once are house sale goes through and we have all that lovely cash in the bank!!
