We were thinking about building a new house but we've changed our mind for the time being and looking into somewhere more established with a bit of land.

I'll be woking in a children's centre and they are dotted around all over so we'll have to see!

So when are you planning to go?? as soon as you get your visa's?

We plan to go Jan 2008, all depends on the house sale though, just waiting for our visa then the house goes on the market.

well i had november this year in mind...but you never know, we've decided to get married before we go, to keep the fam's happy, so that has only been planned since december, and wasn't in our original budget plan...plus you never know how much you'll get for the house...or if the visa will come at the best time of year for putting it on the market either? hmmm...

but as for the pipe dream plan at the mo...we intend to fly to perth (ship all the stuff to queensland) buy a decent sized RV and travel for a bit, as i've been there for a year but not th OH, and as i also mentioned it depends where we can find the business we want..to be honest i loved WA when i was there, but he's dead keen on brissie...but hey once we're there we have the rest of our lives to check it out right?

The package is now in Melbourne...so it should be at the processing centre tomorrow....i think it's the worst bit then isn't it...especially as they took our jobs off the modl all you other marchies'll be way ahead of us


why southside sammyg? schools?

Hi,

Since I'm in Gold Coast already, I thought to add few points here. I think the decision about where to put yourselft once you've migrated depends on your occupation mainly and thats why you might have noticed that I've decided to move to Sydney after securing my PR.

I'm into IT / Computers and have realized that the QLD market isnt as strong as Sydney is or even the Melbourne. Another region picking up quickly in IT Jobs is Perth but then you'll have to compromise on Salary things.

A lot of people who like to be in Gold Coast region, have decided to live somewhere between Brisbane and Gold Coast and that seems to be a wise decision as you'll have a chance to cover the both Job Markets, Brisbane as well as GC.

However, you must keep in my mind that the traffic situation on Pacific Highway is only getting worse day by day and in peak hours you need atleast 45 to 60 minutes extra (on top of the normal 50 minutes of commuting) to reach Brisbane CBD from GC.

But then, someone might say that these problems are not unique to Brisbane only they are the same in almost every big city

I'm one of those from the other thread!
Hello to all other Marchies, I kissed our pack of today and left it in the safe (?) hands of the DHL driver.
We're Sian, Simon and Harry (3), off to Victoria (prob Melbourne) on a STNI137.
So the waiting begins...............

Hi! 137stni is similar to a 136 but is state sponsored (but no guarantee of getting a visa still!!) it just means the victorian goverment are actively looking for people will certain jobs on demand (im a hairdresser), but it means you have to stay in that state for at least 2 years (which is fine if you like it, and a bit poo if you dont!) if you move they can deport you!
we hope that this will give us more brownie points even though they say it does'nt! Tracey.x
