  1. Its very early days for us, we have only been here three weeks of our three month reccie trip but Hubs and I have already been talking about the possibility of making the move a little more perm. His employer also wants to talk to him in the next couple of weeks re the possibility of migrating so you would think that we would be really pleased. However whilst we were chating about this possibility, Hubs told me that he would consider moving for a max of two years but that he would never see Australia as home and would want to return to the UK. So now im in two minds, do we make the move and just enjoy the two years here, hope that we both fall in love with the place and that we both end up wanting to stay. Or do we put a stop to things now and return to the UK and consider other options i.e. maybe moving somewhere different within the UK as we have already desided that we do want a change. I think the big stumbling block for my husband is that he is very close to his parents but they would NEVER fly to Oz to see us. I know some of you may say that they would once we are out here but this is a def no - they wont fly. Obviously i would miss them too, they are like parents to me but i also want to make the most of my life and trying this different way of life / experience i think would be a great thing. What would you do? Emma x
  2. I got SA State Sponsored 176 visa this year and arrived at Adelaide 2 months ago. However, I can not find a job related to my profession in Adelaide. But I got a job offer from another stage which is related to my profession closely. Can I move to another state before he 2 yrs is up? Do anybody have any idea whether there is any chance of removal of 2yrs work and live condition on 176 visa, if yes what's the process? What can I do? Or must get the endorse (like green signal) from Immigration SA? Dos any negative affection on my citizenship application? And what the role does the state pay during citizenship application? Any successful case before? Hopeing for experienced answers.
  3. Hi, I have to fill in form 80 in conjunction with my 856 application. There are many stupid questions on the form, one being 'please give details of visits outside Australia in the last ten years' My passport is fairly new so no record there. I have been to a lot of places in that time and don't know any dates or exactly where i've been. Does anyone know how to find this information? Thanks Andy

    22 Yrs Experienced Carpenter asking for help

    Hi All I am just collecting my OH paperwork together to apply for a Assessment Skill Test now that he has decided that a carpenter fits him best. Tax assessments, P60's form when he became Ltd, accounts for the last 8 years, photos of work, refences from customers etc etc. This last bit I have found tricky as some you file in very safe places never to be seen again but i have to say the tax office on this occassion have been very helpful!!! My question is do I send all the documents in by post ie accounts which are origionals or does my OH take these to an assessment and hand them over along with a check list that the instructor could sign to receipt? Aalso if anyone has recently sat their assessment can they let us know what was required on the day as the links that I have found are pre July before it changed. Does he need to take tools and any idea how long it is taking for assessments to come through? Sorry to ask so many questions DIY is such a lot to take in and my husband is 45 in June 2012 so time is ticking but we are hopeful

  16. Hi, I'm a 23 year old quantity surveyor, I have experience in refurb with my first firm and surfacing / minor Civils with 2nd. I'm up to HND construction with my qualifications but I think my work cv speaks alot better as I've had quite the opertunty for high value works and a quite a range of contracts for what you'd probably expect from someone at my age. I've got a visa so I'm just after what is the process to finding jobs over there while still being in the UK or any tips to how much current work is out there, will I be ok with my background and anything else you have to offer. Thanks

    2 Yrs 8 Months Later

    That's how long it is since I joined this forum and started the long visa application process! Wait no more young man, your wish has been GRANTED today. Despite the drama over the years and cost of repeating our medicals of late, I thought judgement day would be an anti climax. How wrong can one be? Very wrong....:biggrin: It's here in B&W, the visa valid for 5 yrs so we're planning a holiday in 2011 with a view to looking seriously at property, jobs...etc and all that goes with the Aussie lifestyle. OMG - wipe that bloody smile of my face will you! You'll have a job mate. Best Wishes to all and hang on in there. Those still waiting. Your time will come. Also BIG thanks for all the advice and guidance that people have provided. Kevin & Family

  21. Hi, just about to migrate to Australia and we were wondering if you actually have to stay in Australia for the full 2 years without leaving the country? What if we have to come back for a family emergency (our parents are old) within the 2 years will we loose our right to a RRV/citizenship because we have left the country within the 2 yrs? We were granted the Visas nearly 3 yrs ago. Thanks
  22. I'm currently in my last year of sixth form and hoping to become a teacher, i was wondering for those out there, is it easy to adapt to an outdoor lifestyle after being a couch potatoe? Would you reccomend me going back to a sixth form college for social reasons as well as a taste of the education system? If anyone around my age has moved to the land down under can you email me on Nintend01@hotmail.co.uk
