Hi everyone..... Myself and my family recently validated our 176 family sponsored visa to Melbourne. The visa label advises we can have multiple travel to and from Australia until December 14.... But I have been told by an Australian Citizen, that we still are required to complete a residents return visa ( if this is the case, we should have completed it in Australia prior to leaving!!!). Any information would be extremely grateful. Catherine

Hi everyone.

In December we were granted our Visa's!!!! Horray!!! We are going to Australia in June to validate the visa's and just wanted to check something. Our old passports have already been sent to the Australian Embassy and have had labels attached (they have since been returned to us). But in May two of us will need new passports. Will this cause a problem? I have been advised that all I need to do is make sure I bring the old passports and the visa grant letter when…

I cannot believe the length of time it takes to register as a Midwife with a nursing board in Australia!!! I initially started the process in September of this year. Just today I received a letter with a large list of outstanding requirements that is necessary in order to progress with my application.

I do not understand that the information such as transcript/curriculum of the course which was originally sent to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council by my University (and was… Continue

Some folk think we're barking as well. I lived in melbourne for 6 months when I was 9 years old. My hubby Nigel has never been. It's something we have planned for so many years now that it was just something we knew we would do eventually, now that its so close it is quite scary. My auntie is still in Melbourne, and wishes it was there that we were moving to. Are you selling your property? We're not, just in case we do come back. The way we're looking at the move is that its an adventure, if it works out great, we'll sell the house and buy there, if not, and I really hope its not NOT, then at least we've given it a bash and gave the kids a chance to see another way of life. They're 10 and 8, so the perfect age for the move really.Funny we've got a westie as well she's almost 4, but she isn,t comming over. She got unwell last xmas and as a result has got no tears, so over a thousand pounds later she's still no better, she is insured so she is going to stay with my sister in law. the insurance won't cover in Oz and she's not fit to fly with dry eyes. So that's going to be a teary goodbye. How much have you been quoted to take your pooch across? I,ve heard it's loads

Hi Catherine,

My friend emailed me and said that she's checked with the ANMC and yes as nurses we have to sit the academic IELTS!!! I wanted to originally go with a sponsor but like you say....its a big risk to be kicked back out 4 yrs down the line, although if an offer came up....i would be tempted!!! Good luck let me know how you get on.

Hi Catherine go on Facebook and find me Lesley Jennings and add me as a friend and I will contact Victoria in Adelaide so she can let your daughter know how she likes it, etc. Have you been in the poms in oz website? There are some good people on there and they hold meetings all around the country. We have been to two one in Essex and one in Sheerness. We made some good friends. At least your kids have to go with you, ours probably won't come.
