Welcome to the forum. You should read THIS before getting your hopes up. It will be very difficult for you to move here legally.

Try Canada mate, similar as the US, maybe better. US has the worry of medical care. I have a few American friends and none of them have medical insurance and some have business's and just can't afford it.

I tried the USA by the way and was nothing but a costly nightmare. I got a sponser for who i was going to work for. Both us and they spent a few grand trying to get me there. I had to have degrees etc and prove my skill as a goldsmith etc. We jumped through hoops, i got my skills accessed in New York and got a BFA in jewellery design. Still got denied. Even a lawyer in California could not get me any luck. Oh and this was to work in Anchorage Alaska. Great place by the way, no taxes, cheap petrol, loads of room. Ah well that's life. If your English it almost impossible, Irish you have a better chance. Try Canada, very similar. Been to Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton. Now Edmonton (Alberta) may be a good try for you as they are screaming for people and is easier to get in than the US. British Columbia is expensive to live and wages are not too hot (Canuks i know call it "bring cash") East coast is losing people to Alberta as ther is loads of oil there and the province is dept free and booming, or so they say. Pm me if you want some pictures of Edmonton i took while en ruote from NZ to the UK.

So your just starting to visit your first appointments then :rolleyes:

Why is it that so many tradesmen make appointments, only to fail to show up . . .

Ah, I see. Well, there's no way it's the other one.

BTW, NM got one A- and six Fs, which I believe results in a most clearly superior F.
