Hi k.v.hanumesh,

congrats on your visa grant ;). Regarding your questions:

1. Check the conditions on your visa grant letter. Generally speaking, both you and the primary applicant hold the visa in their own right, so they can make the visa validation trip to Australia at different times. However, if you have condition 8502 on the grant you are not allowed to enter Australia before the primary visa holder.

2. No, as long as you make the validation trip before 14th OCT you'll be fine.

3+4. Sydney and Melbourne seem to attract most migrants with an ICT background because that's were most of the companies are located as well. Unfortunately this also means that there is more competition for jobs. Use the forum search function to read about the experiences of other members with the job hunt. I'd strongly recommend to start your job hunt from overseas, even though the chances to get a job that way are slim. But you'll have a list of recruiters/managers to contact after landing and a better overview of companies in your field.

5. You should definitely check out Dolly's sticky posts on http://www.expatforum.com/expats/au...t-things-you-need-do-before-you-emigrate.html and http://www.expatforum.com/expats/au...st-things-do-when-you-arrive-parts-1-4-a.html.

All the best,
Monika
