    jacqueline and i started this process last year, after talking about it for about 5 yrs. We decided to go for it as we figured we were getting too old, both 40 now... she found this site, and although we live in Belfast (not exactly poms) it was the best site and most relevent, as we are using a firm in england to submit out application :) joy of living in the north of ireland, had a choice of two countries to help us out..... so were we at, at the moment, last year submitted the TRA and waited until we married, after dating for 14 yrs and 4 kids later, to submit the visa, just had our Acknowledgment Letter 18/01/08 and now just waiting on dates for medicals and police checks to come through.... nail bitting and pulling off hair seems to be a pre-requisite... longest journey we have ever taken.. so far :)

     

    so just wanna say hi to you's all and the site looks so helpful thanx

    Hi Stephen,

     

    Just coz you are over the other side of the Irish Sea doesn't mean we can't make you an honoury pom.:biglaugh: Besides when 'down under' we will all be in the same boat. ;)

    hi there never set foot in oz before... i would settle anywhere to be honest, it was more jacqueline i was worried about, so i sent her over to here uncle for 4 week holiday, while i looked after the kids, she came back raving about the place, so thats wat clinched the deal...
