    Hi

     

    I am new to all of this. My husband and I have been thinking about migrating to OZ for years but could never find a way in due to points etc. I started thinking about it a few months ago again and did the points test for my husband who is a graphic designer. Frustratinlgy we only had 110 and that was with the 25 points for the language test, which he may not have passed as is dyslexic. Anyway I thought I am not going to be beaten so did tons of research and found that his job is in demand on the 475 visa to Adelaide. I travelled around OZ years ago but did not visit Adelaide so do not know anything about it. My husband was keen on the bigger cities but we had no choice except if we were to go down the employer sponsorship route which is too doggy. So after a lot of research he is now very into the idea of Adelaide and so am I. We have two small children and the reason for the move is a better life for them and I think that Adelaide is going to offer just that. So that is my story. Got to save the money for the skills assessment and then hoping to be able to apply for the actual visa in September time. So looking to go out next summer ( British).

    What I do want to know is some info on areas especially near to the coast that is still reasonable.

     

    Thanks

    Well done for persevering and finding a way here.

     

    We did the same but gave up work to get a degree and retrain as teachers - the whole thing took 11 years!

     

    Welcome to pia.

    Hi there - we to are hoping to go on the 475. Likewise, we were 10 points short, tried the IELTS but ran out of time as OH is 35 in a couple of weeks so would loose even more points!

     

    Good news was that we were swaying towards adelaide area anyway as looks to offer better long term prospects for us and children as well as offering us the chance to be near the countryside and the coast.

     

    We are currently in the process of applying to SA gov for sponsorship, then hopefully if all goes well we can apply for our visa.

     

    Hope all goes well for you

     

    Take care Julie
