Ooh! CG, could you please add me?

I had RM. My 309 de-facto application was lodged April 19, 2013, and my visa was granted on May 10, 2013. That's 3 weeks to the day.

She was one of the lucky ducks that got in when they were granting some of ML's traded cases really quickly. SO LUCKY! And yes, I'll add you, Queli.

This is off topic a little sorry. Does anyone have any advise on the best way to transfer money from US? I have looked into USforex. Was wondering if anyone else has any other suggestions. Im leaving next tuesday and wanted to see how some are doing the transfers. If its the best to use the atm there to get all the cash out? I cant start my joint account until after i show my ID. Would i be able to have then take my money out from bankwest once im a customer? And maybe the fees wont be so bad..thanks in advance. 8-) ...

Getting cash out from ATM is what I did. I got very decent exchange rates and my bank (PNC) even reimbursed the ATM fees. Second option is to spend money from your credit card. Most cards charge 3% foreign currency conversion but the exchange rates are unbeatable. Third option (if amount is too large for cash) is transfer the money through ACH to an Australian bank. I used xoom.com, very competitive exchange rate, much better than my Australian bank rates (NAB).

Bringing things over

Hi everyone - a bit off topic but i was wondering for people already in Australia, how did you bring all your possessions over? I was thinking of just bringing our stuff over in three luggages and just pay the excess. We're not bringing any household stuff or furniture. Going to try to giveaway or sell most of our possessions. But for what we do bring, what are your suggestions? Many thanks!
