Hi all, I’m an Australian citizen looking to move to Australia with my British husband and DC9.

I’m interested in any recommendations for forums / websites to read, international shipping, job seeking, schooling, even your own experiences on what to look out for.

We would be relocating to Victoria where I have family.

Thank you 😊

Good luck, there’s an enormous queue of citizens trying to get back in currently. Very sad stories about mums separated from young children etc (such as people who went o/s to farewell dying parent thinking they would be gone for a few weeks max, got kicked out and several months later still can’t get back). Have heard horror stories about expats handing back rentals based on a flight booking and then being constantly bumped with no end in sight. It’s a complete shit-show.

Pond in oz is a great source of information. Graces for shipping were excellent.

It’s awful, I have a cousin in a similar situation (not separated from children thankfully).

I hope all families are reunited very soon.
