Hi there, I know this is a 'how long is a piece of string' question but can anyone give me a very rough idea i.e best vs worst case scenario as to when to start the ball rolling to apply for a visa to move to Aus. I am trying to see how long we have got left to make a final decision about emigration as due to the ages of the kids / finishing off the DIY etc would really need to move in 2012. (Still deciding about Melbourne v Brisbane v Stay in London) Situation: Family of 4: 2 adults, 2 children. Ages 42, 40, 8, 7 Would use my skill as controls engineer/bms/HVAC to obtain work. We came back from a 10 week reccie in the summer where I attended 4 interviews in Melbourne and found employment positive ( 2 employers said they had vacancies with right visa, one other hinted at possible sponsorship). Didn't take it further at the time as we weren't 100% sure about emigration and didn't want to mess people around. This mainly due to high Aus property prices, think we would have gone for it last summer if they werent so high. I have a feeling my work would be on the skills shortage list somewhere as the employers seem to need people but as its a small niche category somewhere under electrician/computer engineer its not actually listed by title. Was given a category by Engineers Australia but may not be the best / fastest one (Computer Engineer) I know I have to consult a migration agent so if anyone knows of a good one please post back, this will be the next step after this post ! Just wanted some idea before spending money ! Many thanks Dominic Thompson
Huddy posted a topic in Money & FinanceHi all, Just wondering if someone can help me, I am struggling to find the correct info anywhere !! I have my visa through (working holiday initially, then a 457 to apply for when I get there) I have accepted a job and am moving to Sydney on 9th June,... YEY !!! I am trying to look for apartments etc, and get an idea of the price range I should be aiming at but need to know how much money I will have. Base salay is $68 plus super, and get paid weekly... could anyone tell me what I will come out with weekly (roughly) after taxes etc ? Really would appreciate any help !
We are strictly de-cluttering to leave us with just clothing.... But as much as i have tried i will have to get a smallish box to ship out with paperwork and the wii fit in :laugh: I rekon it will weigh about 15-20kgs. On Interparcel : Discount UK & International Parcel Delivery & Courier Services it was £230. Anyone got any other ideas about how to get it there without the 6 week journey?:wubclub:
