Hi

 

Me and my Wife and our 2 children and her sister & fiance are trying to emigrate to Australia. I am a rental sales coordinator for pressure control in the oil & gas industry, I have 6 years experience in pressure control working on & offshore. My wife works in an after school club in our local area which works well round our 2 children, she has worked there for 6 years and is also qualified as a classroom assistant. My sister in law is a full time Nursery Nurse with her svq level 3 and has 5 years experience and her fiance is a warehouse operative within the oil industry and has 2 years experience in this and has 2 years experience as a banksman slinger also within the oil industry.

My children are 8 & 4 so will need to be enrolled in school, once there.

 

We will have equity for coming across due to the sale of our home in Aberdeen.

 

We need information on almost everything, from visas to schooling.

We would really like to know how house buying works over there, i.e mortgages and how much of a mortgage you can get with what salary.

We are hoping to find work before coming across but dont know if our areas of work are relevant in Australia.

Also how does the taxing system work over there and paying for health care etc..

 

We do not know which part of Australia we would be moving too as yet but would be hoping for west Australia or Adelade etc..

If anyone could answer these it would be appreciated

 

Thanks

Tommy

Hi Tommy

 

There seems to be a lot involved here and my advice is to contact a migration xpert we went with Go Matilda who were brilliant for us, always answered every question and email quickly.

 

Best of luck mate.

Hello Tommy

 

If you give Go Matilda a call we used them and Marina Towner has been fantastic from start to finish.

 

Good luck

 

Thanks

Hi Stuart,

 

Is that job on the skilled list? My job is not on that list and as far as im aware its hard to get a visa if you are not on this list

You could just apply for jobs here. There is huge demand for experienced oil and gas people. Have a look at seek.com.au and infomine and infooil
