Hi everyone - We are the Cleghorns (Tim 43, Lisa 41, Alexandra 15, Nadia 8 and Molly 5). We live in Kent and are just starting the long road to moving to Oz (hopefully!!). We've got loads of questions, which hopefully will be answered when Tim goes to the skills expo in London on Saturday. We haven't lodged anything yet so we really are just literally starting out. We feel at the moment as if its a race against the clock as Tim is going to be the main applicant and is already 43. How long does the whole process take on average from start to finish? Has anyone applied to be sponsered by the SA government? Unlike most people we don't own our own house so are not going over with much money. Does anyone know if there is a minimum amount of savings that you have to take with you? And have most people moved over with a job already in place? Have most people applied for their visa via an agent? Gosh I really have got loads of questions but I won't bore everyone with them all now.
Would love to hear your thoughts? Excellent site by the way with loads of info.
