    Irelands call

    I am an Irish guy looking to move to Australia ASAP. 1- Does anyone know if there is a database of the different companies that sponsor overseas workers? 2- If I get the 176 visa myself, how long after I actually receive it do i actually have to move to austraila before the visa becomes invalid? (ie if the visa is granted today do i have a few months or a year etc because I've a few loose ends to tie up at home before moving) 3- From experience which company would you use to get the visa? I have shopped around a bit already and there seems to be big price differences but i'm afraid using a lower priced agent might mean less chance of securing the visa and cannot afford to lose the money. Thanks
  7. Hi, I’m planning on emigrating to Australia in June/July 2012 I am a Computer Engineer (Diploma in Computer Science) + 6 Years’ work experience in the field of System Administration -- (ANZSCO Code 262113 - Systems Administrator) I'm researching at the moment and can’t find the information I'm looking for, I am married to a Non EU National and have 2 kids both Irish Nationals. My wife is in the process of applying for Irish Citizenship but that can take up-to 3 years. What are my best options for permanently moving my Family to Perth WA? Do I need to go first for 1 year on a WHV then apply for residency? Thanks in advance. Joe

  9. Hi All, This is such a great site with loads of information and I am sure over the next while myself and OH will be posting so many questions as the task ahead is quite daunting. We have our PR visa, myself, husband and 2 kids age 12 adn 10. TBH it's the kids I am worried about. Just don't want to make the wrong decision. The plan is to head to Brisbane at the end of October and maybe do a bit of exploration from there. We stayed in Subshine Coast before but we are thinking of going south of Brisbane....like I said daunting. OH is heavy vehicle mechanic by trade but I'm not sure I can see him getting a job from this side of the world so anyone with any contacts would be great. Also if there is anyone here or UK travelling around the same time and to the same area send me a pm and we can compare stories. I am sure I will have many sad days before we leave. Looking forward to getting to know you all on the forum. D:biggrin:
  10. Hi everyone, We are heading off to Sydney from Dublin the 13th August. Tickets are booked. Just trying to find a company to insure you when emmigrating. Multi trip dont do emigrating insururance, and go walk about are only for UK residents? anyone any ideas or who you have used? thanks...
  11. Hi, Just wanted to say to anybody looking for shipping from Ireland that we used McGimpseys in the North today and they were brilliant. We had booked 500 cubic feet and ended up with 750!! They spent 8 hours here packing everything and making sure we were happy. Even called in a back up team to help. Would highly recommend them so far unless our extra space proves extortionate or things get broken! Sian x
  12. Hi everyone Could anyone advise on reasonable priced shipping companies from Ireland looking at sending few large boxes and childs motorbike. Also what do i need to import childs motorbike? thanks!
  13. Here goes..am new to PIO. Is there anyone else considering a move back to Ireland. Have been here nearly 8 years (Brissie) and am homesick:mask:No family here..certainly don't miss the Irish weather but miss the people..family and friends.. Have been back to Ireland many times and there are also personal reasons why I am considering the move back. Seems like everyone else is going the other way:wacko: Any one else thinking about moving back to Ireland for whatever reason? We are Citizens here. 2 kids. Would love to hear any thoughts or advice... Its a huge decision but one I need to make...soon.

  17. we are ready to book our medicals for our visa now, BUT we live in N.Ireland and have UK passports, do we have to go to UK to complete our meds, or can we just drive down to Dublin and do them in South of Ireland ???? it will be great if anyone knows this 100% so we can book our meds, Dublin would be great as we can just drive there, if not we will have to pay for flights etc etc to get to UK.(scotland), (wales), (England).
  18. Hi all, this is my first post and I've really enjoyed reading all the threads on PIO. I have decided to dip my toe with a first post. Basically, I am very seriously considering moving to OZ. My situation is that, since graduating from university 13 years ago, I have worked as a production / general manager in a manufacturing company. I am married and have a big family. My wife, a graduate In design, has devoted her adult life to looking after our kids. We yearn for a better life, and have decided that it is now or never. I suppose the biggest question I have is if there are any people out there who have similar work situation to mine, who have made a successful, happy life for themselves in OZ? Are jobs hard to come by? Could I make it happen on one wage for my family? We are used to counting the pennies, but do have a decent life for ourselves here in northern Ireland. However, this itch doesn't seem to be going away and I need some of you guys to give me a gentle push to start, seriously start the process. Thank you so much in advance.

    New English Bull-terrier in Sidney

    Hi all! We are bringing Max (registration certificate no. X30718), born on 03 Oct 05 to Sidney in a few months time. Most of his relatives were from Ireland and England and many were champions. We are interested in studding him out on arrival. Could you please let me know of any web sites where people are interested in this type of service? And what is the average price for studding out an English Bull-terrier in Australia? Looking forward to hear from you soon, Kind regards
  21. Hi! I have 1 dog that I would love to bring with me to Oz. Is there any legal issues with english bull-terriers? and does anyone know agents in ireland who organize paperwork, flights and quarantine? Cheers
  22. Hi, I just found this forum when I started investigating the possibility of Migrating to Australia from Northern Ireland with my partner. I'm 41, she is a couple of years younger and so far have found the forum to be full of usefull info. We haven't even started the paperwork yet as regards the actual application process, so any advice would be welcome. I have a couple of questions (to start with anyway):cool: 1) Is being in Northern Ireland going to make it more difficult as opposed to being on the UK Mainland? 2) Am I/We too old to only be starting this process now? 3) Any advice on the best part of Australia to try for? (I realise this probably depends on our jobskills) Thanks in advance Geoff
  23. Hi Everyone, I am new to this site and hope some of you will be able to give me advice. We are only considering applying for a visa to live in Australia, we have spoken to an agent and they are pushing for Perth, however I'm not convinced this is the place suitable for us. We live in Dublin and are very close to everything, good schools, social scene, amenities (parks, shopping centres) etc. so we ideally would want the same in Australia. My husband is a carpenter and builder and apparently Perth is booming at the moment and would have the most prospects for work etc. but surely there is work in other cities like Melbourne and Sydney! We have a 3 1/2 year old and a 2 year old so obviously I need the best choice of schools for them. My main reason for moving is so that I could give up work and spend time with the children and maybe have another baby! The reasons for not moving are that we have a really good quality of life here I only work 3 days, we have a great family who help us out all the time, my OH doesn't have to work long hours, we have a beautiful house. My OH is saying that the construction industry here in Ireland is getting really bad and it is going to be hard to keep getting work, so we may have to move! So what I'm trying to ask is can you recommend a suitable city (and area) for us, with a good Irish community and job prospects??? Many thanks, Jxx
  24. Just wondering if all the major companies mentioned on here do removals from NI or are different ones used? Has anyone shipped from Co Antrim lately? any suggestions welcome! thanks
  25. just wondering if there were any irish in here ,were hoping to make the big move asap would like to see if anyone from this neck of the woods is doing the same right now??:smile:
