  1. Thank you to everyone who has replied.
    unfortunanly i have some more questions.........
    Can anyone who has got their visa lately let me know how long it took,the visa company i have used have had my skills paperwork for about a month now and i have just sent in my visa application forms. I have heard that some have taken nearly a year.
    My daughters schooling is extremely important to me and wondered if there are equivalent to grammar schools in Oz.
    Do immigrant poms have to pay higher car insurance premiums.What are secondhand car prices like as importing my pride and joy is out of the question.
    If there are any welder/plater members it would be good to hear your views or thoughts
    thanks once again
    Duncan

    Hiya
    we do have grammer schools here, one that i personally know of that carrys a good reputation is Ipswich Grammer although im sure most grammers are good school.

    Car insurance i think is slightly cheaper than back in the UK. You can carry over your no claims bonus too ,if you have one.

    Second hand cars are more expensive than in the UK, cars dont de-value as quick here ,probably as theydont turn into rust buckets quite so easily. Have a look at Australian Ebay or Trading post for a guide to prices.

    Hope this helps you a bit
