What kind of visa are you applying for or have got ??
Your only tied to that employer if you are going for sponsorship if if they have sponsored you , if you are going for permenent resident visa you can change jobs as you like.
I've got SA sponsorhip and I am applying for the old "SIR475"..not actually sure what that's called now..but I know it's not a permanent visa i.e. I need (or my partner) to work for 2 years and then apply for permanent residence. I don't have an employer's sponsorship..but as far as I'm aware the SA government have sponsored me as having a job (at the moment in this country ...UK) that they deem worthwhile to allow me to even apply as bringing something to that sponsored state.

Just wanted to check if he was right.
Like your hubby i drive my missus insane some times with research on the housing market, areas to live, car prices, living, job market, weather conditions and anything else that i can think of and she works on the budget, finaces are defantly not my strong point so i leave that to her.
Well it 06:57 am sunday and im off to work until 19:00 tonight driving lots of tourist around (emmets).
Have a good weekend and heres hoping its not long before me and the missus join everyone in Oz.
Its a bold statement to criticisize someone who has actually emigrated compared to sitting in UK waiting to do it. It doesnt matter how much research youve done (, and yes imo , some dont do enough), you dont know what it will be like until you ' live it'. Every person is diferent , every industry is different, some people are lucky , some not.
As for Libbys comment.......................you know men assess things better , just dont jump in like women !!!!!
Oh , on the whole , aussie kids do have more respect................but there is some crap everywhere!!!!

Hiya..that is good news.. only 12 months..nice one. Thanks for replying.

Anyways...need the visa first eh..lol. fingers crossed that it's all moved on this Tuesday..I have a good feeling about it.
Well thats good news about the new build hope its right ,us 475's could do with something to go our way
i agree Jill!
