I am sure there will be a few out there, although until they get their visa they won't know the exact dates. Also take a peak at our http://www.lifeinqueensland.com forum.

Have you got your visas now or are you still waiting?

Hi

We are working towards heading over in Nov 2012. Plan is to get a RSMS visa (I'm a nurse). Hubbie plans to be a house husband for the first few months (longer if he was writing this thread!) and take care of our girls (aged 6 and 4 by nov '12).

Happy to keep in touch and compare notes; info; queries, confusion and generally keep eachother sane (..ish) - in my case the damage may already have been done!

Hiya

 

Good luck with the process,just wanted to ask what a RSMS is? i am hoping to take the plundge too.I am a Mental Health Nurse and researching and researching,Just as Im about to set the balls in motion I come across something new.

 

It is mind boggling. I am about to register with ANMC then nursing agency.Have you got that far yet? Then the ielts tests and medicals.Hoping to go on 457 visa,however my eldest son is 20 and has to apply himself.We have four children 20,18 and twin boys of 11.

 

Would like to compare notes and confusion.

Does that mean that everyone that's moving this year has sold their houses? We haven't considered what we'll do if ours doesn't sell fast enough :(

Hi guys,

well we have been on poms in oz for many years but dropped off the radar. since our last post we have booked a wedding (in cyprus), got pregnant, got our visa granted (176 QLD Sponsor) travelled over for 4 DAYS to activate at 27 weeks pregnant, had baby had wedding and now finally planning the move back :wacko:

our boy is 8.5 months old and we planning on moving over june 2013 as this was the time of yr we moved out last time for 12 months and found it easy to climatise so think it will be best for little one. we made some great friends first time round but only one has a child similar age to ours so would love to meet up with other families when we finally arrive

I'm in Yorkshire with our 3yo. Hubby is Aussie & caring for his mum in Brissy, as she is entering the palliative stage of lung cancer. I'm hoping to head out there in Nov with our boy & 2 dogs, before flight prices rocket..only submitted my partner visa app today tho, so at a stretch it could be March before I can work! Wld love to share some of the journey with you, as it's hard doing everything solo at such short notice!

Cool, where abouts in North Yorkshire? We are really loving it, however our container has been delayed, my hubby has no job secured and we can't decide on where to live so I hope you are much better prepared than us :)

 

We are from North Yorkshire too and moving March 2013 to Brisbane. A family of 4. Good luck!

Hi everyone,

 

we are also hoping to get to Brisbane June/July 2013!

Wifes a Nurse and we are now waiting on the Skills assessment (and a long wait it is to)

Has anyone else heard about the cut backs in the Public sector? And if they have or if anyone is actually already there, what effect has it had on the demand for UK Nurses?

We'd love to hear your views.

 

Si & Ange.
