    Heading To Perth

    Hi there, Our visas have been applied for and myself and my partner are set to arrive in Perth the end of next month. We are leaving the flights for now till we have a good idea of how long our visas will take. Hopefully it will be ok. We would like to meet up with some folks when we get out there, so give us a shout on any meets happening in the Perth area from the end of March onwards. Gayle
  2. :wubclub:Hey Gday Mates!! Just wondered if any of you guys are heading to Newcastle NSW October time? Hubbie and I are hoping to go over to Newcastle October time and would be brilliant to share the ups and downs of emigrating. Were both excited and nervous, but so ready to go now. Hope to sell the house before we go. Hubbie is an engineer and is thinking of getting a job with the company he currently works for, as it will prob make everything easier when we arrive. Anyway if anybody is moving over to Newcastle soon or if anybody has any tips about Newcastle and the surrounding area would be great to hear from you!! Kirstie and Marc- Excited, nervous and ready for the adventure!!:jiggy:
  3. Hi there, Hope someone could offer some guidance / advice to this matter. I am heading to the UK after 9yrs here, but have racked up a bit of debt since living in Aus. I am sending a letter to my creditors requesting for some breathing space whilst I move back and resettle and find work, but I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this or what the uptake or response could likely be. I have no intention of avoiding paying my debt, as my ex was in the industry and I know that Aus companies can utilise an agency in the UK to chase this, but curious if anyone has any further knowledge, facts or documentation to 'persuade' the creditors to freeze debt for a limited period of time or to negotiate a repayment structure.. Or, as one person suggested to me, an option could be to file for bankruptcy, naturally this causes an issue if I returned to Aus, but would there be any impact in the UK with this method? Strange question I know, but I want to make sure I cover all bases before making decisions..
  4. Hi Everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas. My Hubby has decided to go to Perth for a reccie for 2 weeks leaving on 7th January (lucky sod) Just wondering if there are any PIO's already in Perth that would fancy meeting up with him, he is a carpenter by trade so anyone with similar background would be nice ,just to have a chat and find out a bit more about employment prospects while he is there. Also he needs a holiday visa, is it evisitor 651 he needs ?:biggrin:
  5. Well after alot of soul searching, I have come to a decision. Going to be booking our flights for 3 weeks time, only it will be just the 3 of us going back instead of 4. My OH does not want to give up Australia just yet, so he has decided to stay behind, on the hope that he gets a job. I guess at the end of the day, I am the type of person that can't live on a wing and a prayer... far too practical for that, so with a definate job offer in Canada, I am going to seize the opportunity and get some stability back in my life. My twins are over the moon at going back... and I am sure when I tell everyone back in Canada they will welcome us with open arms. Who knows if this is the end of the journey for me... I may turn into a ping ponger especially as my OH does not want to return for us. Thank you to everyone for your support during our good and bad times here. Cheers Karen
  6. Hi There Just asking for my sister. They arrived in rural NSW in December and her hubby has been emplyed as an Auto Electrician since they arrived. He specialises in Buses and Large Vehicles and got a position with no problem at a bus manufacturers. Whilst they love the place it really is too rural for them and there is nothing for her to do so they are now planning to head up to Brisbane in August (when we go over). They have started sending his CV out to the big companies but were wondering if there are any good agencies that deal with Auto Electrians as there seem to be very few jobs advertised. Also when he started work for this company they didn't as for Australian registration, will this be required in Queensland? Many Many Thanks Jen xx
  7. Woo hoo!! we recieved notification that our 457 visa had been granted yesterday only 8 days after uploading all the information, havent had to have medicals, the only thing that they requested was certified copies of passports, we just sent colour copies of passports and hoped for the best so couldnt believe it when got email saying it had been granted. So now its full steam ahead, seven seas came and collected our packed up boxes today and OH has given notice at work, we are going to book flights for around 25th oct and are moving to the point cook area, although we havent found a house yet have been in touch with some agents. Would be great to meet up with anyone when we arrive and for the kids to make some friends Becky x

  13. Hi we have just started the process of emigrating to Aus, I mean just started, A couple of calls have been made. We have 2 dogs that are coming with us and we have had some great feed back regarding that aspect of the move. My girlfriend is a Czech Nurse but registered here in the UK with the NMC and has been so for 5 years. I am a ODP qualified in the UK 15 Years ago, we are both keen to get out to AU as soon as , obviously after we sell the house . We was wondering does anyone have some info on how long it will take us to get there and what type of Visa will be required . Does it realy take 2 years ! Or is there another option ? If there are any Czech nurses working in Oz , any info or help would be great. All the best Ale

    Heading back, but not forever

    Hey everyone, how are we all? Ok, I'm on the verge of getting my PR via the ENS visa... I really can't wait. Any how, I want to head home after it's been granted for a little while, 6 months max maybe. Been out here for four years and am just in need of home for a bit, you know? Good pubs and gravy. Anyhow, that's not the issue. My girfriend is Australian and would love to come too, sweet! she's used her working visa thanks to a very stubborn immigration officer who insisted she activated it when we went back for a short holiday. It was never used (properly) and the time on it has long but vanished. So, I'm looking for some advice on going the other way for an australian... is their an equivalent site with helpful tips for going to the uk? ozinpoms.com maybe?! As we may go for a while it would be handy if she could work, both for monetary and social reasons. Without the working holiday visa though we're a little lost as to the best approach... Any help VERY much appreciated, Cheers! :smile:

Is anyone else flying to Brisbane from Manchester on Mon 26th Oct, Look forward to hearing from you :cool:
