Carocon1 posted a topic in UK ChatHi all, We are moving back to the UK in a couple of months from Cairns QLD and I was looking for a bit of advice. We shipped all our household goods and furniture to Aussie and as we are heading back to the UK we have decided to sell a lot of things rather than take them all back. I wonder what is the best way to sell second hand furniture, books, toys, kitchenware etc in Aus, is it Ebay or gumtree perhaps as I am unsure where to start? Thanks so much for any help you could give. Caroline
Hi All, my first post right here!! My husband, my 2 year old and myself (hubby and I are British and dd born in Aus) are planning on moving back to the uk for good early 2018 for family reasons! I'm just doing some research as we are due to have our second child in March! The two options we have I guess is 1) have the baby in Sydney. Wait until we have birth certificate. Apply and receive British passport and head back a couple of months after birth. 2) move back to the uk when I'm around 7-8 months gone and have the baby in the Uk? we have lived and worked in Sydney for the past 8 years so I guess my questions are more based around having the baby in the UK 1) regular check ups. Should I arrange an appt with a GP for when I arrive so I can be assigned a midwife/hospital for the birth (we have family there so can use my mums address). I've heard people having a nightmare with this and been turned away or sent to a hospital miles away as they're full etc. 2) as I've been working in AU and paying my taxes here, am I entitled to free NHS care for the delivery/aftercare or will they slam me with a bill for having the baby? 3) would I be entitled to any benefits? Government parental pay etc as I would here in AU? has anyone experienced this before, any info would be really helpful. I can't seem to get the answers I'm looking for on the gov website Many Thanks
Hi all, Almost 2 years ago I moved to Australia because I was sponsored by a company (457) to do a massive project with more than 400 people involved and I was the project manager for that project. Once the project was done I needed to move back to Europe because the company didn't have any work by that time. By the time I've moved back I've worked 1 year and 10 months in Australia. I really really want to go back, so my question is, what can I do. What is the best way to get a PR? Do I need to do the English test since I was already almost 2 years in the country and working. Is there any migration agencies I could contact? Tips? What would be the way you would take? All tips are welcome.
I'll give you some background: My family and i moved to Australia, originally Perth WA, in February 2008. After 8 months of not getting work, being unhappy, paying huge rent there, we decided to move to the North West Coast of Tasmania. We have been here for about 4 years now. It's a beautiful state, but there are hardly any jobs and everything is expensive my family don't enjoy their jobs and i cannot find an apprenticeship - being a girl in Automotive makes everything a little more difficult as everyone over here is sexist as hell. We're doing well with money, we have two cars, a boat, a gorgeous house with panoramic ocean and mountain views, yet we find ourselves wanting to move back to the UK. My mum's family is back in the UK and we miss them a fair bit; perhaps that's what is instigating our move. But yea, i don't feel as though i have anything here; no mates, no job, no future here. I keep trying to remind myself of the state of the UK; the traffic, etc. but i still want to go back for good. i've never felt like we fit in here, based on the fact that we're english. We're going to need a 40ft container and we are taking our 4 year old Ragdoll cat, Zach, with us. Has anyone been feeling/have felt similar and moved back? We're just a bit lost and stressing out about the process. Nothing is set into concrete, but it is more likely than not that we'll move back. Any comments or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
