Re: Was anyone else apprehensive/conflicted about moving back?

I think most people are to some extent. I know my wife was probably more than me, but, four years down the line she is very happy we did. We were in Australia from 2008 to 2016

Re: Budget to move back from Australia.

If you don’t plan on shipping a lot of things then have a look at Movecube. They come in three sizes and the largest actually fits a fair bit. They will give you a quote same day.

Re: Is an Agent worth the money??

In my opinion yes, an agent is worth it. The fee is a drop in the ocean in the total cost of migration. Be aware though the state sponsored visas are currently closed.
