NZer plus UK husband wanting to move to Aus...

Recommended Posts

Guest newcastle2011

My husband and I are thinking of /hoping to move to Newcastle, Aus.

I am a NZer and my husband is British.

He works in the construction industry in the IT section, but his skills don't quite correlate to the skilled immigrants list.

I have a brother in Aus who is an Australian citizen.


Do we need a Visa if I am a NZer?

We have a 2yr old and so it would be my husband who is working full time.


Any help or suggestions for good sites appreciated.

Can't answer your questions but wanted to welcome you to the forum, good luck with everything.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

hey, i'm sorry i don't really know too much on this subject but i am also in a similar situation, my girlfriend is a Kiwi and i am British. She does not need a visa to live or work there, although i think the Australian government has made it slightly harder for Kiwis to live in the country, such as tightening up on loop holes and various other things i've heard. but if you wont be working you and your 2 year old should be fine, but your husband will definitely need a visa of some sort. i know its a long shot but if you are between 18-30 your husband will be eligible for a working holiday visa of which you can work but really i would say that would be last resort. Good luck
