Hi there! just thought I follow up previous posts and let you folks know that our 457 visa has been granted, from the day we attached our additional documentation we were advised that it would take 5-7 weeks to process. So imagine my shock and awe when the email came TWO DAYS later saying the visas had been granted!!! Full steam ahead now with the sticking point being getting the boys into school, I seem to be having major trouble with this, did anyone else find it difficult? None of them seem to have any places, be that private or state schools.... any ideas guys?

Hi ,Welldone in getting your visa how old are the boys , i see that you are looking at going to mindaire my little girl goes to mindarie primary school if you are in the catchment area then you should have no probs getting in , my little girl was in a private school from year 1 and I have moved her to mindarie in the middle of year 3 its a great school they have small class sizes and the teachers are great, Deb
