    Hello everyone.

     

    We are (finally) starting the long process of the whole ielts/sponsorship/visa application and are hoping one day to eventually move to the other side of the world (along with everyone else in England by the looks of it!).

     

    Lucy will be the main applicant for the visa, she works as a Biomedical Scientist for the NHS, whilst I work as a Service Desk Team Leader, again for the NHS.

     

    At the moment we are waiting for Lucy's IELTS results to come back (13 days is up tomorrow!) and then we can send all the relevent details off to AIMS for a skills assessment. At least that will be straight-forward enough, send them the documents + wad of cash .. simples.

     

    We had a good chat with reps from Adelaide at an expo in Bristol in November and they convinced us that 1. Adelaide will be the place for us, and 2. we would be wanted by them as well! State Sponsorship + a 475 Visa is the plotted route, fingers crossed the changes made on the 8th Feb wont hinder us too much!

     

    Hopefully tomorrow will bring the required IELTS score (OA 7 needed) and then we can carry on to the next bit.

     

    Al + Lucy :)
