    Destination Oz!! ??

    Hi All A friend of mine says that she has spoken with a man called Mr Breen from Destination Oz!! She is thinking of using them. Here is the website: http://www.destinationoz.co.uk/ Please also see here: http://www.destinationoz.co.uk/intro.htm I don't recall hearing about this agency before. Has anyone used them or heard of them please? If so, feedback would be appreciated. Personally I have reservations for a number of reasons, but it could be that I am overly-anxious. Dunno. I'd be interested in the opinions of others, please. Many thanks Gill

  6. Hi I am looking to emigrate from the UK. I have just received some information from a shipping company and it states that they require an Australian address. On our immediate arrival in Australia we will be renting a furnished holiday/short term let, so wont have an address in advance and intend to initially do a 'reccie' of suburbs before we decide on a rented property, so does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks

  8. Brits seek hotter climes, with Australia top destination for emigrants As the Winter gloom continues, recent research by leading foreign exchange provider, Moneycorp, reveals that 72% of Brits would consider moving abroad*. Australia is the favoured destination for people longing for a new start, with over a quarter (27%) of those surveyed eyeing up a life down under. Oz is particularly popular amongst the middle-aged, with 33% of those individuals looking to move to Australia aged between 35 and 44. Other idyllic destinations include the USA (12%), Spain (9%), Canada (7%), France (7%) and New Zealand (4%). For many, the British weather is the clincher, with a quarter (24%) of those considering emigrating citing climate as one of the reasons for going. The most popular reason is general quality of life, with over half (52%) of respondents suggesting that a lifestyle change would tempt them abroad. Other key factors include the UK economy (16%) and the UK political environment (12%). David Kerns, Personal Client Dealing Manager at Moneycorp comments: “Government cuts, tax increases and one of the coldest winters on records have made many people in the UK dream of starting a new life abroad. As we move into what is thought of as being the most depressing time of year, we expect to see a rising number of enquiries to Moneycorp from those looking to make a new start in places such as Australia, the USA and Spain.” Employment opportunities abroad are also a strong factor for making the move, with a fifth (20%) looking at moving overseas for work reasons. This is particularly true for males, with double the amount of men citing their job as a reason for emigrating compared to women (27% compared to 14%). While employment is a strong consideration for Brits thinking about emigrating, almost half (46%) do not necessarily believe that they would be able to get a better role overseas. Almost a fifth (19%) claimed that they will be looking to change profession when moving overseas, whilst a further 18% of those questioned are concerned about not being able to find a job abroad. Steven Lewis, Managing Director, The Network and International Sales Director, Totaljobs.com, adds: “This time of the year is traditionally one where we look to revaluate our lives and inevitably jobs are high on the list. Our own research into this area shows that UK jobseekers are overwhelmingly drawn to Anglophone countries, with the USA (62%), Australia (51%) and Canada (49%) the three most popularly cited countries they would want to work in. With our latest Totaljobs Barometer predicting uncertainty in the UK jobs market in the coming months, opportunities abroad seem to be all the more attractive for UK jobseekers. However, for those seeking brighter skies and better opportunities overseas, it is important they remember how competitive the market is and to ensure they consider the motivations of those they will be competing with for jobs.” Fluctuating exchange rates are of little concern to Brits thinking of moving abroad, with only 7% of respondents citing this as their main worry. This is despite two-thirds (66%) of individuals potentially needing to transfer money from the UK on a regular basis for a pension or salary. David Kerns continues: “We’d strongly advise anyone who is tempted to move abroad to put their finances first. The dream can be shattered if you haven’t thought about possible currency fluctuations and how you’ll transfer money to the country you are moving to. For instance, buying a house in Australia worth $250,000 will currently cost £27,000 more than it did this time last year due to changes in exchange rates. A foreign exchange specialist like Moneycorp can give you free expert guidance on the currency markets, and help you transfer your funds when the rates are in your favour.” We recommend using Moneycorp for all your international payments to and from Australia. Moneycorp will make it simple and save you money. Their experts will monitor the currency markets on your behalf – achieving the best possible rates of exchange. Using Moneycorp – The main benefits: Highly competitive exchange rates No cost and no obligation in opening a Moneycorp Account (you need to register with Moneycorp before you leave the UK) Ability to fix exchange rates for a set time period, helping protect from adverse currency movements With Poms in Oz, you won’t have to pay transfer fees on any currency transactions made through Moneycorp. Moneycorp can help you make the most of movements like this, helping you trade at the right time, in the right way – when rates are in your favour. Their expert Account Managers will proactively keep you updated on the currency markets and alert you to any significant changes relevant to you. Moneycorp testimonial "Looks like I bought just at the right time looking at the rate this morning!! I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and for saving us so much money, than if we had just used our bank and I look forward to dealing with you again next year."

Was thinking of driving upto airlie beach spending the weekend threr exploring the islands then back again. but any other ideas....
  12. if you front load medicals and presumably they are sent to oz (the correct place) does anything change (status, docs met..etc) to let you know that they were processed and added to your visa application? basically get an ack back that they were received ok. (assuming they were sent by the panel doc normal mail and not courier)

  14. Hi All, We have just returned from Oz where we decided that Byron Bay is THE place where we want to be. We've already signed up with a UK based immigration bureau and are filling in the forms for a NSW state sponsored business visa. We'd love to hear from anyone who is in the process of going to or is already in Byron Bay. We're planning to go summer 2010 after our youngest son finishes his A levels. He's hoping to go to uni in Oz and we know nothing about the Oz system - how to apply, fees etc. - so any info. would be really great. Thanks :smile: Sonia PS - It's so exciting!!!!!!:arghh:

    Destination NSW - Hunter Area

    Hi Guys, Firstly many thanks for everyone's posts. They have been great to read and a good source of info. As you guessed we are new on the site, but been browsing for a while. We just started filling out skills assessment for ANMC as we are nurse/midwife and they should go off soon. Anyone know of anyone in the Hunter area?....or plan to go there?....My brothers in-laws live in Forster and they rave about it, but it would be good to get a few different views on the area, particlularly Newcastle / Maitland / Forster-Tuncurry. We go in Jan 2008 for our reccie trip. Cheers Nige
