What temp visa is he travelling on? I'm going to have to do that too because we need to get our kids in school there. I applied April 2018 so I know we have a long wait... Ugh!
Thanks KTE711!... we are going to try to apply for a 600. Hopefully with no NFS condition so we he can stay up to 6months. Hope everything goes well for all of us. =)

Let us know the outcome of applying for the 600 visa! Are you applying as a tourist or sponsored family?

There's a few that I think I'm going to take off our DC waiting list because I have not seen any activity from them on this forum for months. I'm going to take the following off our list: Deebs, Cardude151, #62Aussie, and Oyetoba. If you are one of these and want to remain on the list, let me know.

That means that the oldest one on the list with no grant is nyctoaus (from April 2017). I'm rooting for you.

Also, thank you Dannygolucky for sharing your experience of sending your furry friend to Oz. I may have to get some more information from you if or when I decide to do the same.

Rmbnv,
Oh ok I didn't know that! Tourist it is then!

Can anyone lend experience on sending money to Aus?
When we were in Aus for Easter we tried to open a bank account however they wouldn't allow us. Which I umderstand. But now we are just trying to figure out how to get our money there!?
I know there are international 3rd party companies that don't charge as much as banks. But where do we deposit it if we have no account? Do we have to transfer to a family members account then back to us? I'd like to avoid that! If possible!

Highly recommend Transferwise. Have used this several times over the last few years and its super easy and secure. My partner and I recently moved about $30,000 from her German account into our Oz account. Takes 1-2 days maximum, and out of that massive chunk the only fee was like €40 euros (would hate to think what the banks would charge).

You will need an Oz account obviously to transfer it into over here, but as you said maybe you can put it into a trusted family members account for the time being if you cant open your own.
