Hi, we're Mark 42 (Mehanical Fitter), Vikki 36 (Housewife) and our 3 children, Maisie 8, Joe 5 & Woody 2. Just registered on PIA tonight.
Mark has had TRA passed, we were going for PR but his trade has been taken off the 'wanted' list. Luckily SA still have it on theirs so we're going down the sponsorship route.
We're having a bit of a 'wobbly'patch at the moment though wondering if we will be better off over there or not. Would really love some honest stories, good or bad, on people's experiences of moving over there.
We're a bit daunted and wonder where's the best place to start, i.e. area, good schools, 4 bed rental properties (seem to be loads of 2 & 3 bed but not 4) also rental costs seem quite high?? Could you still have a good standard of living, food costs, utility bills etc. Please advise x
