Migration jumpoffs into Australia

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


As an unskilled worker Ive been toying with the idea of trying to migrate to a country near to Australia (not NZ) and use it as a jumpoff point into Aus. The flights to Aus would become much cheaper if I lived in somewhere like Indonesia. I could maybe go on the Pacific Workers visa scheme if I moved to a Pacific Island. I could become skilled working in an Australasian country, where the cost of living is much lower, then make the break for Aus 5-6 years later.


As Australia is making relations with the far east now more than the UK this makes some strategic sense. Have you seen all the far eastern migrants in Sydney!


Has anyone had experience of this or know of anyone who has done this?

I know you can in the UK - in theory but with the UK/EU recession this looks difficult. So many people after the same jobs. East Asia is still booming and your money goes further out there. Plus you would be able fly to Aus easily and get to know the place and job market easier - that makes a real difference.

No I have never heard of anyone doing this. How do you propose to get a visa for Indonesia or whatever?
