600 Visa

    Recommended Posts

    Beware of the time .

    We lodged in December 2015 and were told the process takes 12 to

    18 months to receive our 143 visa .So a year down the line we get a 600 visa thinking that will cover us to live on oz until we get the 143 .

    We sell our home and most of the contents the rest we ship to oz .

    We jack in our jobs and go for it !

    Big Big Big mistake

    We go back to the U K in a couple of months to no home no jobs no car and several thousand pound out of pocket

    So please don't make the same mistakes we made.

    ( but we had a great time while it lasted. ) .

    Sorry to hear that it's worked out that way for you! I'm forever saying not to burn bridges - take career breaks, rent out your house etc. However, hindsight is perfect vision I guess. Hope it all works out for you!

    From a visa view, that might be fixable - it may be possible to get another tourist visa. 

    From working out, don't be too harsh on yourselves. Almost half of those that go return. I m one and we returned with no house, no car, no nothing other than a suitcase each.

    Thanks for the support,it may be fixable with a visitors visa but the big stumbling block is the fact that we are unable to work and earn money while we are in oz and it's surprising how quickly your savings disappear
