  1. Hi All, Been out here over 20 yrs and I have read some really disturbing threads and posts on the forum in the last couple of weeks so here's some simple good old common sense advice. You can take it or leave it but it's all from personal expierience and from people I know you have made the move here: 1. Are your skills required here? are they on the shortages list?? If not stop here, as you most likely will NOT get in. Try again in say 2 yrs time the list is updated quite often so keep looking if you have the 'bug'!! 2. Apply and go through the process, don't try and take shortcuts, go with the flow. Personally I don't have time for migration experts, but that's a choice you need to make. They DO NOT have a backdoor entrance they can sneak you thru, no matter what they tell you, they just do the paperwork side of things and charge you for It. 3. Wait for the answer, could be a long time coming,so sit back and wait, nothing will move the immigration people here any quicker or in the UK. 4. If you get in and are granted visas it's time to sell your house, car, any business you may have or are involved in. DO NOT keep any of these before you come out here, all of these are EXCESS BAGGAGE and will be like a rope around your neck. Get shot and and dispose of these. You are coming out here to live you can't keep a foot in each country. If you can't let go or are thinking of a 'lets try it and see' approach then the chances are you will not suceed as you'll be coming here with too much EMOTIONAL baggage. NOT GOOD for you or fair to AUSTRALIA, which has been good enough to give you a chance of a new life in a new country. 5. Once your ready book tickets and buy ONE WAYS ONLY. This will stop any temptation for you to go back and see the relatives in the first 12 months. 6. Book your removalists and get out here when you are ready. 7. Tell the relatives you'll see them again when THEY can afford to visit YOU. Not the other way round. You will need every $ you can earn and save in the first 3 years to set yourselves up unless you are coming out here with Saturdays lotto jackpot!! This is honest advice and i hope it helps!!! Happy days Stefan
