Thanks what i have been told too.. i am waiting for grant, and planning to move by mid-Feb.
School opens end of Jan and thats when most people are expected to be back and start work.

Hi Folks...planning to move to Mel by Jan 3rd week, and start looking for a job. I am told the job market would be cold during the Nov-Jan period. Any thoughts?

When is the most economical month for air travel for visa validation? Would it be worth to just land in the West coast to save?

I booked my tickets in Nov (9 - 17) for a validation trip to Sydney. In general, the tickets are cheaper in Nov before the holiday rush. I got it for around INR 27K/540 AUD

Hi All

What exactly is a visa validation? Have read this term multiple times. Not 100% sure I know what it implies.
The visa comes with 2 dates "Must enter before" and "Must not arrive after". Validation (trip) is you traveling to Australia to honor the former one (Must enter before also known as IED). Put simply, if you cannot move permanently to Australia by the IED, you should make a short trip (visa validation trip) by this date.

Thanks much KeeDa! That pretty much clarifies that my upcoming trip is indeed a validation trip. ?

Am doing a validation trip (turned into a vacation ?)with family in Nov. And I will move (alone) to Mel by Jan end, to look for a job.

Any thoughts on shared accommodation in Mel? I am told the eastern suburbs are better. What's the avg rent per week? Thoughts/ideas/tips welcome!

Yes, that would be the validation trip for you all.

I don't have much idea about MEL, but eastern suburbs are better and hence are expensive as well. You should be able to find shared accommodation on gumtree, airbnb, facebook groups, etc.
