Welcome to PIA! Good luck with the visa journey. What is your or your partners skill? What part of UK are you from? Are you going to use an agent, we didnt & found it ok but then I'm a nurse & I think the TRA/skills assessment is more straight forward, having said that there was still some stressy moments in there!! Anyway good luck with it all.

Welcome to PIA, and good luck with the visa process. Have you done much reserch on what you have to do? what you do first depends on the skill you are useing to apply, what ever it is getting as much of your work history together in as much detail as possible and with as much evidence to prove it is where we all start and Adelaide is where most of us end up:D:D.
You will get lots of help from this site, ask and someone will give you the answer.
I'm still exicited and we decided to go about 12 months ago.
Welcome to PIA. Be prepared for lots of waiting, frustration and loads of form filling. Did I mention the waiting?
Good luck on your journey and hope to meet you on the sunnyside.
My Hubby is a Factory Manager and I am an Admin Manager...I just hope they need those sorts of skills. We are from a small town near Sheffield, not sure about agent or anything yet only just decided...so all this is very new to us but I will keep you posted and no doubt knowing me ask loads of questions.
Oh... by the way forgot to say a big thank you for replying.....see my excitement is getting the better of me already.
Hi Jane and Gary,
Good luck with your visa application.. We have children of similar ages they are 14 and 15 and both are looking forward to going ...Thank goodness!!
;)The best place to start is right here, loads of friendly advice and no question goes unanswered, great to have the kids "on side" as it can be a funny age for emigrating as they are just setting down roots check out www.adelaidebound.com great Adelaide site.
Hi Jane and Gary, Welcome to PIA and good luck with your application.
Thanks for your responses. It was actually our kids that chose Australia (with a bit of gentle persuasion), we thought to have them on side would be a lot easier than to totally have to convince them, our oldest is a little concerned about uni but I am sure they are just as good in Australia.
We are going to the expo in Leeds tomorrow to get as much info as possible, can't wait.
