Default Moving fro the UK to Australia

Hi,

Hope everybody is well and enjoying the Expat lifestyle, I am looking at immigrating but am unsure how to do so, do I look for a job and try and secure employment? Contact recruitment companies in Australia, go through a immigration company or is there another way? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Iain

Welcome to BE.

What is your job/occupation, and what qualifications do you have?

First thing to do is look at Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection to see if you qualify for any visas. Not everyone does, so start reading up and if you need help come back.

Hi Dorothy,

Thank you for the advice, I have looked at the AGDIBP website and I do have enough "points" but unfortunately my job isn't in demand, should I be looking to retrain?

There are two issues with retraining. First, most occupations require 2-3 years post qualification experience. Second the lists of occupations change regularly with occupations being removed.

How are you calculation your points? Can you give us a breakdown?

And second, please do not send personal messages asking for advice. I don't give personal advice on immigration and you asking is against site rules. (Read the stickies above)
