    Hi all

    Just started the visa application process to move to australia, what a daunting task.

    Any words of wisdom greatly received.

    Be patient, try to learn as much as you can about Australia but understand that websites and pictures do not tell the whole story. Be prepared for the big move and plan for it but don't kill yourself over every detail.:smile:

    Just really to read lots - make sure you have a good grip on all the legislation changes currently starting (July changes for example) and think about using an agent?

     

    Also, try not to get too stressed with the waiting!

    I would recommend an agent, only stressful bit for us so far has been the waiting!

    Just take it one step at a time and it's not so huge :smile:

     

    Remember to celebrate all the milestones you achieve along the way, as it's a stressful task and you need to congratulate yourself once in a while!!

     

    And remember why you set out on the journey in the first place!!

     

    Best of luck with it

    Best of luck....endless form filling but just keep checking them....none are really any worse than an extra long apassport application they are just thorough. This site is great for questions as lots of people at different stages.

     

    -any questions just shout up!

    Agent for less stress, and remember what it's all for! Lots of waiting & writing but will be worth it in the end.

    Hiya

    I would say, 'take one hurdle at a time'. Its a long frustrating process and can be daunting if you look at whats ahead, but by just concentrating on one step....until the next one comes up.

    As for an agent.....its an expense, which is fab if you can afford it. You can do it easily without...we did and i had absoluetly no knowledge of the visa/emigration process until we started. You just have to be prepared to put in many many hours on the internet researching.

    Good luck

    Stay positive! Take it one step at a time, take whatever gets thrown at you and don't give up on your dream - always remember why you started your journey down this road in the first place

     

    And have LOTS of patience :arghh:
