    Hi i'm Eddie,

    We have been granted visas just waiting for the go ahead to send passports off after renewing mine. Seems like theres always something else to wait for!

    Cheers mate.

     

    We are hoping to get over there for November as it will be my 40th, Is that being too hopeful do you think?

    Hi Eddie,

     

    Congratulations on your news and Good luck with the house,

     

    There is nothing wrong with emailing/ cold calling for jobs you never know what replies you might get, you may find alot will not get back to you, however you may find that they will and will want to make appointments with you for when you come over.

     

    This is what I did I applied for loads of jobs(chef) and was amazed how positive alot of the companies were. Just make a list , do a cover letter+resume and email it off to them stating you have a permanent Visa etc... .

     

    You never know what results / contacts you can make. Like you said check on line,use google have a look through ninemsn,career one,

     

    All the best and enjoy

    Hi Eddie

     

    It has taken over 3 years from our initial contact with an agent to being granted the visa. Still can't believe we are actually going in just over 4 weeks. Was rough at times but we kept hold of our dream. Takes lots of planning and wine! Need to dry out when we arrive!!!!

    Do you know where you would like to live? City/coast/hills?

     

    We have a 14 year old girl and 12 year old boy. They have been amazing throughout. It was huge secret for so long, we both - OH and I - didn't want to lose our jobs prior to the grant of the visa. They kept it so well. Very proud. It was a great day when I texted them at school and told them they could let their friends know.
