Hi all :hug: My names karen with partner mark and 3 kids. We would love to make the move to Oz and have started to look into things. I have a cousin there. From what basic info I can gather we do not qualify on the skilled trades list. My partners employer has a factory in Oz and we have heard of other employees being sponsored to move there. BUT I`m confused if we went down that route does one of us still have to be on the skilled list to gain perm visa??? Also embarassingly I have a spent conviction for housebreaking - sounds bad but I was 16 (I`m 34 now) and it was my mums house (I was living there) I broke in cos I was locked out - but mum didnt realise it was me phoned police - i got charged - judge said it shouldnt have went to court etc and I was admonished having had a clean slate since so worried bout that. Any advice would be much appreciated - thanks in advance karen x
OK, for those of you interested in my boring/stupid life I have an update. In my quest to find easiest way to OZ (has to be 457 visa unfortunately) I decided I may have a better chance of getting in New Zealand!!!! I sent hubbies details to this company who are building this huge town called Pegasus near Wellington. I liked the look of it so thought what the hell so sent hubbies C.V. off to this company who deal with visa etc, similar to Migrant agents, but called something else in New Zealand! Anyway, got reply saying they were so impressed with his C.V. and experience that although they cant guarantee a job/visa they are more or less saying we will have no problems getting permanant residency. Then several days later got another email from the people of Pegasus who are looking for people to fill jobs and people looking for houses to be built at this new town. They said they are so confident we will be successful getting into NZ and securing job that they dont charge for service. Now is the question, this seems to good to be true does it not? Am I missing something here. Only thing I am seeing is a way to Australia, OK it will take us 2 years to do it but hey we can wait. So anyway got really excited that there might be light at the end of the tunnel only then to find this horror website about people who have had really bad experiences in New Zealand when they have moved. These stories range from bullying in school to being ignored by neighbours, having people tell you to F**k off home, (but in a threatening way, not a laugh in any way) and finally the crunch came for me when read that most people think NZ is great for people with health probs and asthma because of the clean air. Appparently not the case as the houses are built so badly with no insulation, heating that in winter people end up in hospital or worse because of their health deteriorating really badly. Houses in NZ apparently have mold growing and are really damp, and unless you have lots of money to spend on building your own house and stating you want heating etc you would be a fool to even think of NZ. So back to square one again, will have to wait and see and hope when we send hubbies C.V. to potential employers in late Jan someone bites and wants to meet him when we have rekkie in March. :arghh: I know you are all asleep now, sorry for rant, had to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening.
