Talking Hello everyone... Looking at moving to Australia

Hi all,

I've been lurking around the forums for a while now having a nose and a good read after my partner and I began discussions around emigrating (to Australia, specifically)!

To give you some background, my parents were going to emigrate to Perth around 5 years ago but we didn't end up going due to my grandfather becoming ill with skin cancer. Naturally time goes on and I left home, made my own life and they never actually ended up going.

I have always been really interested in the great land down under and it'd be fair to say I am the main driving force behind recent discussions about emigration (after his mum pro-actively encouraged it - was never sure how to take that haha) but my partner is as interested as me!

He is currently studying to become a registered nurse and I am currently a contact centre manager/customer service manager for a large UK tour operator.

We're planning a reccie trip to Australia to explore after doing some research as we're both realistic enough to know that there's an element of subjectivity to most things on the internet and we're far better off going and seeing where we like and where jobs are!! We're currently looking at SE Queensland, Brisbane and the Gold Coast but my partner likes the look of Perth from some of the clips we've seen on the internet.

It's all really exciting (as well as horrifically scary at the same time?!) so I hope to make some new friends on here!

Anyway, I realise this is turning into a bit of war and peace so hopefully see some of you in the Australia forum over the coming months and years!

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Hi AdamL

Are you or your partner Aus citizens? If not, the first thing you need to do is to see if you qualify for a visa http://www.immi.gov.au/visawizard/

Cheers
