Default Hi, newbie and confused - Thinking of moving to Australia

Hi,

My husband and I are thinking of making a move down under, we have 3 kids, I am a third year student nurse, husband is an electrician. We are house swapping with our friends in brisbane next year for a month. So, I have been reading up on a few things regarding visas, real estate, jobs etc. We aren't ready to apply yet as I have a year left at uni. All this info has left me very confused

So can anyone offer me some advice regarding what checks are carried out, i.e health, criminal record, credit checks etc. I suppose my main concern is that we have had some previous trouble (about a year ago) with repayments, no ccj's or defaults, a few late payments....would this impact the application?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

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.
