New Life In Oz
My name is Karen and hubby Jason and we are in the process of applying for visa's to emigrate to Adelaide. The main application has been lodged and we are hoping for visa's within the next 6 -8 months. It would be lovely to hear from people who are also applying to go to Adelaide. We live in Essex.

Where are you hoping to move to in SA? Do you have a job to go to once you get down under?
We will be starting from scratch. My husband is a roofer and I work in admin. We are prepared to do anything to make our new life work. Do you have jobs to go too? look forward to hearing from you.
Welcome to PIA
I hope you have an enjoyable time on here. Please ask our Team of Moderators for any help on here. Of course our PIA Admin Monkey is Tim he is in charge of the site. If there is any problems that Moderators can't handle (which is very unlikely) ask Tim.
May i wish you all the best with the Visa Process.
Hi Paul & Jan,
Thanks for getting in touch and congratulations on getting your visa. What a shame the housing market is like it is hey!!! How long did it take you to get your visa?? What visa type have you been granted?? Will you rent your property or just hang on until you sell??
I joined PomsInOz too so thanksfor that tip.
Look forwardb to hearing from you. Where are you in the UK??
Karen & Jason

We are going around the Seaford/McLaren Vale areas as I have family there, how about yourselves, where are you going to??
No we don't have jobs out there and to be honest it's quite a scary thought, Jason is a Landscape Gardener and i'm a full time mum but I also run the office side of things for the business and to go from that to nothing is daunting hey!!!
We're not due to get visas till later in the year so maybe the housing market may pick up a bit by then, will you rent your house out if you can't sell?? Where are you in the UK???
It's lovely to hear from people who are the same, I just wish we had our visas already,it's a long wait living inlimbo land!!!
Look forward to hearing from you.
