      As somebody who holds permanent residency in Australia via a CPV 143 we would confirm that at present Australia is too expensive to consider moving permanently to. We are back living in the UK where we know that the pound we get from our pension is worth a , whereas when exchange rates come into the equation, receiving pensions and frozen government pensionsfrom the UK, is a bit of a lottery. We paid our fees expecting to live in Australia, but now we have doubts about moving back permanently. You could say that this was an expensive exercise, but the fact that we could help our son through a painful divorce made it all worthwhile. I would say to any parent considering the move to do their sums carefully, it is very tough when your family move to the other side of the world, but moving out and being poor is no kind of life!!

      Thanks for that reply good to hear the side of someone who has been through this. Great to have the down side of things in front of you to consider as these things are things that have been worrying my parents.
