Hi, I have been reading a lot of posts on here, with people saying they have got £50k, or £100k to go out to oz with, obviously from the equity of their houses. But we will be lucky to scrap together £10k to go out with. (We got on the housing ladder at the tail end of the bloom, so not made much on our house) So I was wondering if there was anyone else going out with £10k or less??? Also, is there anyone out there who did go to oz on £10k or less and do they have any tips for starting out again, on what seems to be very little to go out with in comparison to others. Thanks Mandisfam
hi i am now a qualified midwife in the uk. hoping to go over to oz later this year if we get granted that golden ticket. i have a £10k student loan from when i was a student midwife, and pay a minimal amount every month through my wages. there is no way in the world that i would be able to repay the full amount when/if we get to go to oz. as i dont have that sort of spare cash lying around. can this debt be transferred to australia and could i keep paying it through my wages there. am really worried about this. i also have an overdraft through my bank which at present am paying back £100 per month, i still owe £2200. would this need to be paid back before going or again could this debt be carried over to oz and paid there. any advice would be great. thanks nicola
IVE JUST COME ACROSS THIS::: QUOTE- Hi, my husband and I just moved over to OZ and we brought only 3000 pounds with us. We had no house to sell and after we bought our tickets and paid for our stuff to be removed, its all we had left. We rented a house, bought a furnitre package for about $2000 and slowly every week, we buy a bit more. We have 2 kids, and we have found it not be stressful at all. We are happier as a family. Our sponsor gave us a new car and we pay $50 dollars a week on it. It just goes to show, that you dont have to come out with thousands, just an eagerness and you can do it. We are now living in a nice house, and we are totally happy. -END QUOTE Ive been looking back through old threads and come across this and many more discussing us mad poms going over with a lot less than £10k! My point is this was posted round about May 08, and with the economic climate now, was wondering how people are managing? There is no way we are going with £10k (much less!!) although my hubby has been sponsored and does have a fab wage when we get there, Isnt it all about determination, as the above post shows? I do worry LOADS about money, but its only what i do here most of the time! All comments appreciated..... Sarah x
