  1. hello and thanks in advance for reply's, Im a carpenter joiner from the uk and in have been married to my wife for nearly 2 years she has a Austrian not Australian passport, although she is originally from Ghana, but has been a Austrian citizen since she was 16. anyway we lived in uk for a bit together but economy is bad and work is hit and miss, so my wife suggested we move to Austria, where we are currently, as she said it is great country and there is plenty of work. but they speak German which i cant speak, trying to learn!! and cant get work as need to speak it, so keep running back to uk to do little work then come back with money and its gone again. i really like the country but work, the language, and the state of Europe economy is not keeping me very upbeat. i have been thinking of going to Australia for years even when single and but never did, and now im pretty determined to do it now. my dilemma is that i could get working holiday visa easy, but my wife cant as she Austrian!! i could get permanent visa as im a carpenter/joiner (which i like the sound of) but can i include my wife on it ? we only been married 2 years and her passport is different? are there any other types of visa we could apply for together? thanks again in advance craig also i would like to add is, how long would each visa take to process and do you pay the fee up front or when visa is near completion? thanks to everyone already reply to thread.

    Carpenters - Vetassess!

    hi i am newly married 10 months ago and living in kent, uk. nothing has really gone our way financially in uk and we are just getting by in life, carpentry work here is terrible and im just window cleaning as its more reliable then site work. we don't have much savings either but was thinking of coming over on a holiday working visa then applying for a permanent visa when i got some money from working in aus, what i want to no. is it good life in aus for familys? no children yet. is their still a lot of work in aus for carpenters? unlike uk. and does it pay well? what is cost of living compared to uk? i am really considering a move soon and appreciate any info and useful knowledge. many thanks craig
