What happens after the visa is granted?

Hiya, I'm brand new to this and all forums but I need some quick advice - please!

In quick summary, I am married with 2 daughters, aged 11 and 15. We have been planning this move for the last couple of years but we wanted to sell our house first before we had a visa ticking away in the background. We sold the house last May (what a relief!) and I completed all the lovely paperwork and finally submitted a 176 application on 17 December 2010.

I received an instruction on March 19th 2011 that I would be assigned a CO within 3 months and should have medicals completed asap. We have done this but when no CO was assigned I spoke to DIAC and they said that they have had some delays and they now expect to assign a CO to me on 30th September 2011.

I was concerned that this might be pushed out again so I have applied to SA for sponsorship to speed things up and they should receive their documentation by courier tomorrow!

My real question is this: I am thinking of going out to Adelaide on a recce in mid September on a 3 month tourist visa. The guy I spoke to in DIAC said this would not cause a problem for the 176 visa but I'm wondering now what will happen if I get the CO and everything goes according to plan and they grant the visa while I'm in Australia.

I figured I could just leave Australia on cheap flights and reenter from some neighbouring country but I just saw mention that they need to put a stamp in your passport. Does anyone know if you can go to any embassy in the world to have this stamp applied? Anyone know where the nearest country is that has an Australian embassy? Would New Zealand do???

I'm only doing the recce cos we really expect to be gone from Ireland in mid October and I don't want to send the girls back to school for just a couple of weeks so I thought our time might be better spent getting to know the craic in Adelaide and having a look at the suburbs and the schools, etc....

I'd love to hear more about Adelaide too.....

Hiya,

I have another quick question. Does anyone know when the DIAC will update the allocations info on their website? It's supposed to be done every two weeks but they can often take up to 18 days. They haven't updated it now since July 18th...

Don't know about the visa situation. Adelaide is not generally described as the liveliest of cities but if you're going there to raise a family, that's probably not such a bad thing. I'm from Perth which is also considered pretty boring but I like it well enough. Then again, unlike Perth, Adelaide is relatively close to several other major citiesI haven't been to Adelaide in a long time but it's known around Australia as the city of churches and somewhat ironically also has the highest rate of serial killings (despite having no penal settlement origins like many of the other major cities). I think it is generally a relatively quiet and peaceful city though. Of course one of the biggest perks of living in South Australia is the Barossa Valley. I hear they have a newly furbished airport, if that helps. My uncle lives there with his wife and kids and they seem to like it. Maybe there are some Adelaide locals on here that can give you more helpful info. In the meantime, here's a link to a wikipedia entry on Adelaide to give a bit of an overview: Adelaide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adelaide is an awesome city It has a population of just 1 million , its has great beaches and many nice wine regions, it has a nice summer and the winter is only mild. To be honest it isn't the most exciting city in terms of things to do, but for raising a family its perfect and safe. And an added bonus is that it's the most affordable city in Australia :P
