    I presume at your age you're looking at a "working holiday visa" (WHV) which enables you to live in Oz for 12 months and work for 6 months of that stay. Of course, after this 12 months you'd have to leave.

     

    If you wanted a permenant visa, you would need to have a tertiary qualification in a profession such as nursing, or have a trade in demand. You could also look for an employer to sponsor you. (this would be very hard tho).

     

    This WHV is quite easy to obtain, as long as you don't have a criminal record or HIV. You would also need a few thousand $'s to support your stay- Funds need to be proven on entry.

     

    Flights prices depend on what month of the year you'e flying. Accom prices range dramatically on where in Oz you want to live, and what type of place I.e Hostel, house, flat etc

    They'll be plenty of jobs in hospitality and farming job you can do, also if you plan on staying in backpackers there really good for offering work in return for free accommodation. As for prices in Aus compared to UK, get ready to save up as it's expensive over here in general for food clothes, rent. There are cheaper places like target but it's cheap clothing. My advice buy all the clothes you can get in england before coming over here. There are plenty of places you can rent, but my advice don;t share accommodation with an aussi. There good people but when you live with them it's a different story, that's my advice.

        Hey, my friend and I are both thinking of moving to the bay next year even though parents aren't happy so the won't help us find the information on the bay. We would like to know is it worth it for a year fresh out of school? Can we study there? Is it expensive? Will we find work? Are the bills manageable on a teen wage? Is there financial support there? Is it recommended for two best friends who want out of home?

        Hi Guys,
         
        I have a PGCEI, from the University of Sunderland, which was basically the same as a regular a PGCE course but the  12 week teaching practice was not done in UK, hence was not given QTS.
        I'm considering migrating to Australia and was wondering whether, PGCEI is recognised by AITSL? even though it doesn't have QTS status, its contend is the same and has more than 45 days of supervised teaching.

        Has anyone flow to New Zealand after their first year on a working holiday and come back to Oz on a tourist visa? If so how easy is it to do so/ are they strict on letting you back in? My WHV ends at the end of November but my mum and dad are coming for Christmas and new year to visit family so obviously want to be here with them for that.
        1. Can I book return flights from SYD to NZ? Will I get pulled up for not having a valid visa for oz when I enter nz? Obviously I'm applying for that when I get there. 
        2. Do I need to get a visitor visa for nz or not? I'm a UK citizen so says online I qualify for visa waiver but other sources say I need a visa for nz if I'm going there to renew a visa for another country? 
        Thanks in advance.

        Irish and English couple, aged 33 and 29. Living in Melbourne for 4 years, we both met out here 3 years ago. Recently applied and granted permanent residency.    Our plan was to stay for another 2 years to get citizenship and then move back home to get married and start a family. We would then have the flexibility to move back to Australia in our late 30's / early 40's (e.g. when the children are ready for school).    The complication for us is the recent change from 2 years to 4 years to apply for citizenship. It makes decisions about where and when to get married, buy a house and start a family a lot harder.    We are also struggling with getting good, unbiased advice (for example; family want us back home, friends in Australia want us to stay etc). A lot of peoples point of view doesn't go deeper than the immediate, emotional layer and we need to try and move beyond this.    We would like some thoughts on two options we are currently working through:   1. Move back to UK or Ireland within the next few months, with the plan to return within the 5 yr return visa allowed with permanent residency. During our time at home we would likely buy a house and get married (maybe have a child or wait until we get back to Australia - tbc!). On return, we would be settling in Australia and get our citizenship this route. We like this option as our preference is to spend our 30's back with close friends and family. There is obviously a risk with this option that we would not return (and most of our friends believe we won't).   2. We stay for the 4 years and get our citizenship (at this stage we would be 38 and 34). After we get our passport we would likely head back to UK / Ireland for a number of years. During the 4 years, we would want to get married, put our savings down (e.g. buy a house or shares) and maybe even have a child. We would likely organise the wedding from Australia but go back to get married in the UK. On the plus side, we are here now and we will get to citizenship quicker. On the downside, we won't be able to spend these important years with friends and family.    Overall, we only know life as a couple living in Australia (as we met here). So although we love it, we don't know what a life would be like living back in UK or Ireland. Add in buying a house, getting married and starting a family during this time - and the decision gets more complex!   Thoughts?! What else should we be thinking about to help our decision?
