1, I see a lot of talk about ti jobs but can anyone tell me what the job situation is like for shop,driving,wharehouse kind of work is like.

Hubby just been employed doing removals/warehouse $14.50 hour!!
another warehouse job offered the same, a driving job during the evening was giving $10!!!! retrain yourself for something different!

3,I have looked at websites on renting a apartment and i dont know i see people saying rent is high in perth but i have seen 2 and 3 bed apartments new ones and very nice ones for rent for no more than $270 a week or are there other things i have to consider other than just the rent and the nornal bills.

We are renting at mo in Perth although we have bought a house, we pay $280 week, our purchased house is rented out at $210 week so just about covers the nortgage until we can move in, stuck in our lease here.

4,What sort o price should i look to pay for a car to get around in we dont need a new car a cheap one will do to start.

We spent 13K on a 3year old car, which will be part exchanged for a 4x4 at a later date, we also got an older wagon, $4500 for hubby, that is going as well and getting something smaller.

5,We have a hotel booked for the first 5 days can anyone tell me how long it takes to sort out a rental property we will not be buying for a while and give me some good plases to live not to far from the city and some on the coast and on the river just to get me started thanks.

Ours took about a week to sort out, but I reckon that was very quick, depending on where work for you will be, look around the areas just out a bit, I am in Padbury, most suburbs by me are nice and easy reach of the freeway for the city.

Your wife probably will be able to get a visa with no problems at all, and after that length of marriage she will probably get PR at once.
However, what you are proposing seems to indicate she will be entering Oz on a tourist visa. If she enters with you, and all your worldly goods, on a tourist visa, no immigration officer worth their salt will believe she intends to return home to the UK, and they may well refuse her entry.
She might get away with it, but it would be better (and cheaper) to apply for a spouse visa while still in the UK.

You may want to post this bit on the Immigration Forum, for advice from an agent. I know you said you have spoken to a couple, but their advice conflicts with that given by agents on here like George Lomvard and Alan Collett.

I concur with Polly. If you want a simple life get the spouse visa in London - I cannot understand why so many people want to apply onshore from tourist status when it's so much more complicated (and often slower) to do it that way.

The AHC London normally process spouse applications fairly quickly. Getting police checks in advance is worthwhile, medicals too.

Either get the spouse visa before leaving the UK, or go to Perth on a genuine holiday, and if you like it return to the UK and apply for the spouse visa then.
