    hi graandjac

     

    we started this adventure 28/3/06 after we had been to the glasgow emigrate

    seminar after talking to an agent at one of there stands it was reccomended that if we wanted to emigrate then we would have to act fast because i wouldnt be able to go once i turned 45 in(12 weeks)

    getting all my paperwork together was hard going for me because i didnt have any certificates (im a plasterer) but had over twenty years work experience my agent said i had to get references off every employer i had worked for going right back to when i first started this was in 1983 it seemed impossible but some how i managed, the first set of references where sent off and two days later i got a call from my agent saying they were no good

    :( not enough detail they wanted to know every tool i had ever used what materials i had worked with and what kind of jobs i had worked on, and when, plus for how long. so i had get them done again this took about 3weeks i included photos of jobs i had done both in england and germany

    and put in as much information as i could this time it was enough,we finally

    past it on 21/6/06 and now only had 10days to lodge are application.we managed this on the 30/6/06 3 day,s before my 45th. so don,t give up or give in just keep going.. it,s gotta be worth it eh :!:

    My goodness that was some bloody tight timescales to work too. But it just shows you that it can be done.

     

    We have just sent of my hubby's TRA assessment via an Agency that we are using. They are happy with it, (and according the them have not had one refused).

     

    Its so bloody nerve racking, Im suprised everyone who applies for this doesnt get divorced in the process as Im seriously considering it already and were in very early stages. Ha Ha. :twisted:

    TRA was definitley the worst bit for us but the stress seems to stay pretty much all the way through the visa application and then you have the move to organise so starts again :cry:

     

    worth it in the end though :lol:
