    Move from UK to NSW

    Thank you! We are definitely researching and planning!! I only wanted to find out where might be good for us and seem to have got a tonne of feedback about my profession and how I may be unlikely to get a job!

    If moving to the other side of the world doesn’t make you worried I don’t know what would!

    Move from UK to NSW

    Thank you ! It’s good when people are helpful! (Instead of making you more worried) I’m guessing that now is not a great time for vacancies though with new school year starting :)

    Also, would this be case if applying 190 ?

    Move from UK to NSW

    I am a secondary teacher with 6 years experience. Yes, I know I would be going where I could get a job. I would be looking for a job prior to moving, all being well. Just trying to get a few stories from people who have emigrated with a family regarding which areas may be good. Although we LOVED Sydney, we are a little terrified of the size of it!

    We definitely want to be somewhere quieter but preferably somewhere ‘beachy’. We’re from Yorkshire so not used to the business of cities!!

    Move from UK to NSW

    Thank you both for your replies! That’s really helpful Unfortunately we would not have anywhere near that amount of money!! (We wish!) we would have a good amount of equity in our house, but we are only young so not loads! I’m not really sure how much we would be earning there…my partner is a barber/hairdresser and I am a teacher so we’re not rich lol!! I worked out maybe 140,000 between us just from looking at internet! (But not sure? Does this seem about right? We are both experienced in our professions) I don’t think we could afford Sydney looking at those prices!

    Move from UK to NSW

    Morning all! Just after some stories from people who have moved from the UK to NSW (With children in tow!) We are at the point of starting our visa process and suddenly it all feels very real (and terrifying!) I know this is very premature! I have a good job and a nice house, we are very secure in the UK… but fell in love with Australia while backpacking and can’t seem to get past wanting to live over there. We had hoped to move to Perth which is a bit of a comfort blanket for us. We spent a lot of time there previously and have lots of friends currently living there. However, my profession is not on the list for WA. Just would like to know how any families have got on with the move to NSW :) thanks :)

    491 skilled family sponser

    Thank you, and do you know whether these are being processed for offshore applicants at the moment ?

    491 skilled family sponser

    Thank you - and what would the sponsor have to do? Would geraldton WA be an acceptable region. do you just have to have an occupation on the SOL ?
  11. Good morning all! I was just wondering if anyone has any info on the 491 skilled family visa and how it works. I have recently posted and I am just thinking about alternate routes. I am a secondary teacher 85 points currently I have a family member - aunt- living in Australia in WA - Geraldton With added points for family sponsor this will take me to 100 points. My question is - at present is this a better route than other options? can any family member sponsor you? What do they need to do? I am waiting to have further conversations with an agent until things are looking a little brighter as the last time I talked to one she advised waiting until borders open but just want to try to weigh up my options! Any advice appreciated! Thanks!

    Secondary teacher 189 visa

    So if I had family living in Australia , I do, in a regional area, who were willing to sponsor (which would take me to 100 points ) this could be a better option?
