    My husband and myself along with my 15 yr old daughter have just started to look into moving to Adelaide, but really dont know where to start. We would like to carry out the process on our own rather than use the services of an agent to keep costs down. Some back ground on ourselves is my husband is a plumber/water engineer with 8 yrs exp and I work as a sales manager for a department store and have 10 yrs exp in the field. We dont own our own house in the UK and would be looking into renting in Adelaide. Neither of us have any medical concerns. I have spent the last few days just looking at different thing on th einternet and I'm so confused???!!!

    Can anyone please point us in the right direction:arghh:

     

    Thanks

    Go matilda

    George Lombard

    Visa Bureaux

     

    Just make sure they are Mara registered....

     

    We did all our ourselves....well my mrs told me what to do and i just supplied it all...drop me a PM and we will give you a few pointers.

    we used ambler collins as an agent.my husband emigrated in 1999 and everything went smooth so we used them for my visa too.it depends really on how quick you want to get here,we only had a short time so making the decision to use an agent worked well for us.Mick is in the building trade and i am in hospitality/sales.we have only been here 2 months but if we can help in the slightest way then we will

    Thanks for that.

    Theres just so much to think about and dont know what to do first.

    We are hoping to move late 2012 early 2013 so no really rush, My daughter takes her GCSE's next year and we need to start saving as we dont have a house to sell here.

     

    How have you found your short time there?

    I have just completed an online survey to see if we could get a skilled worker visa as my husband is a plumber and has been for the past 8 yrs and it said we werent eligible... gutted but will still give it a go. I think I need to chat to an agent. I know its a personal qusetion but how much did the agent charge? how much did the visa cost?

     

    Thanks so much for your help

    its hard at time....wnt lie to you on that one...we have had some issues but thats with the big kids not Australia.

     

    You got to keep focussed on the reasons why you came here in the first place, embrace the way the aussies do things around here as its alot different than the UK.

     

    when summer is here its awesome, when winter comes its a bit cool...or even cold as some people would say.....especially after summer days of +35 degrees....

     

    We had an sunset on the beach the other day and we had dolphins leaping out of the water....then a ray popped up to say hello...end to a beautiful evening ....
