    Cut my Losses?

    Hi there Hoping for a little advice... I had appointed an agent some time ago. I've been reasonably efficient in sending everything they've needed and responded to any emails etc they have sent. They have had my docs for Skills Assessment for over 2 months now and they still haven't submitted them. I have called and emailed several times but they just don't seem to be doing anything with them. I just keep being told they will let me know if they need anything clarified. I can't decide whether to cut my losses and just do it myself or to hold out. If I hadn't already paid £1K, I'd pull away immediately and just do it on my own. Can anyone give a little guidance please? Thanks!
  2. Just wondering, how can there be a skill shortage here now with so many people losing their jobs and the unemployment rate at 4.8%. How are people still getting in on work visas ? I think any of you planning on coming here should hurry it up if that is what you want because surely this will all change soon as things get progressively worse in employment here.
  3. Given the present housing market in the UK, I'm sure this will be of interest to a few migrants: Go Matilda - Your Gateway to Australia - News Best regards.

    cuttin our losses!

    Hi ppl, havnt posted or been on for ages. Well we hav decided not to go after all. Our visas will expire on 8th Oct and we cant afford to validate. We took the house off the market as nothin is movin here no matter how much you drop your price. Hubby informed me that he wasnt that fussed on going after all, (which devasted me!). Everything seems to be against us ie: the housing market, exchange rate etc. We would not hav half the money to go with than we thought when we first started the whole process. I feel empty, with not much to look forward to. For the last 18months i hav lived and breathed Australia. I unpacked boxes y'day which i had packed thinking we would be there by now! (i had a secret cry to myself) Maybe when the economy picks up we can get the visas again! I wish you ALL happiness with your new lives Down Under, and for those of u still in the process Hang In There it will be your turn soon! All the Best, Sharleen xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
