  6. HI...... We are currently living in U.K and considering the big move down under. My husband is serving in the Royal Navy and we can apply to emigrate with him joining the Australian Navy. I would love to hear from anyone who has already made the move or are in the process of doing so. We would be based in Perth and would love to find out more about the life there. We are a family of 3...Scott (39) Deb (37) and Abbie (7). Look forward to hearing from anyone with both pros and cons.... Thanks.....:v_SPIN:....x
  7. Hopefully moving to Aus in just over 18 months when my husband has finished in the navy. I can easily find nursing jobs over there, however finding jobs which will use his skills is proving a little difficult. He is thinking of trying as a civilian firefighter - any ideas where we can get information on this for around Adelaide? Bev x
  8. I am just wandering whether anyone could help me, i already know that i can not apply to join any OZzy police forces until i have residency, however, i am wandering if there is anything else i could do for the force. Ive been in the RNP for 6 years and have a diploma which i passed with Distinction, so i do have law background and i am secruity cleared through the UK government. Anyone with any job suggestions???
  9. Hi just wondering if there is any one from the navy going to Perth next year 13th Jan 2010 as i was on the phone to Portman Travel and he stated that there was a whole group going out that day. If so please get in touch would be nice :daydreaming:
  10. When we started the process 18 months ago, Hubby was getting posted to Perth as he's a submariner, he was told about 6 months or so ago that he would have to complete training in Melbourne for a year. Got used to that idea and researched Melbourne to be told 5 weeks before we fly that we are now going directly to Perth as originally planned. Positive side means our daughter won't have to change schools now. :laughxmas:

    Visa paperwork for Oz Navy

    Hi Our visa paperwork arrived in Canberra this morning and OH is hoping for a January intake but obviously time is of the essence. Been told a case worker will contact us on reciept of paperwork. Can anyone tell us how long before a case worker contacts you and how long the paperwork process is likely to take and whats involved in it. We've been told by the Oz High Commission if visa not approved by mid Dec then we will need to wait until June. Very stressfull in our house at mo. Its already taken us 18 months from initial application to get to his stage. :arghh::mad: Labby
  12. Hello out there! We are a small family Rick, Nicola, Lilly (4) and Harrison (2) from Plymouth, I am an Electrician Working for the Royal fleet auxiliary (Merchant navy). Ideally I would like sponsorship from a mining or large company (176) or a (175) independent, my concern is how will I be assessed under VETASSESS for verification if I'm out at sea on a ship? and where do I go for state sponsorship approval? Should I apply for a job, and then the visa, or vise versa. I worked in Oz for P&O Cruises in the mid late eighties life was good out there things have changed now I expect. we would love to have any help thanks :smile:

    First Day out of the Navy

    Well thats it, as of today I am unemployed for the first time in 14yrs 10 months - its the only job I've done since I was 18.

Whats strange is I thought it would feel different, dont know why but just expected to feel like something was missing, but its just another day. Now come on LCU get those meds processed please so I can get on that big silver bird!!!:spinny: Simon
