|After looking at this site for a long time, gleaning info and enjoying other peoples experiences! It is now our turn, to hopefully start on our journey which will end up with the 5 of us (Joanne and John and children Anna 14, Emily 11 and Matthew 4)living in Perth!|
State sponsorship gained in June 09, full application sent to DIAC same month, visa agent said sit back and relax now!!! more like - nervously bite nails and constantly check e-mails!!
We had a great visit to Perth in Dec 08to Jan 09, we all enjoyed a fantastic visit to Perth, checked out many different areas, looked at some schools we were interested in, and visited as many places as possible to give us a flavour of life in WA!
We were not disappointed, and although we have have had very mixed emotions and reactions from our extended families, it has not deterred us, we feel sure (most of the time!) that Perth is the place we wish to be, and that our family will certainly benefit from all WA has to offer.
Wish us luck through the process - if you are already there - then lucky you! and if not, hopefully we will see you all in Perth soon (everything crossed,visa is quick, house sells, exchange rate improves etc. etc.)
Speak again soon, Joanne x
