So.. I've just watched last years Perth one of these and, forgive my ignorance, but I don't understand how people are able to buy a property after being in the Country for one month.

I thought that you had to have Permanent Residency to be able to buy property and I didn't think you could get this within a month of moving over?

I must be wrong, as the couple on that show bought a house at the end of it.

Can someone please clarify for me?

Thanks

Some of us have Permanent Residency from the onset.

You can buy a property with a temporary visa, you just need approval first.

Oh! That is interesting... Thanks. I've been working on the basis that I'll have to rent for four years, whilst on a 457 visa!

I am aware that property is expensive over there, but from what I can see buying seems to be no more expensive than renting?

How do I seek approval?

Start here http://www.firb.gov.au/content/faq.asp

There's also lots of info on here about it. Just do a search for FIRB and there will be lots of posts about it.

The production company who are producing this programme have been on BE quite a lot lately. There are three threads about it in the Media Requests section, and yesterday they asked us to publish a press release, which is here if anyone is interested.

I herd koalas and the wife paints Uluru red, does that count as "interesting jobs"?

Thank you so much for this link. Having read it we applied on the Sunday, were telephoned the Monday. The camera man and director arrived on the Tuesday.
We arrived in Sydney yesterday, October 26th and the crew were waiting for us in arrivals to film us meeting our son and daughter. Today they are going to film us seeing our granddaughters. The house search is planned at the start of December. So - see what success your posting on this forum has had. Thank you.
Julie and Ian

Somebody recently told me that Phil's surname is in fact McCavity . . . can anyone confirm this?

p.s. I've tried doing a google search, but with mixed results.

We bought a house whilst on a 457 visa last year. They changed the rules just before we bought it and you no longer have to get approval providing you are using the house as a home and not an investment property.
