Default Puzzled and lost

Hi anyone/everyone. We are thinking of moving to western australia at the end of next year for 12months. This hopefully should give us time to consider if this is the place for us. We have 4 children. So i guess being new to the BE site im wondering could any body help with advice of any kind?
1. Could we go on my partners profession which is a theatre nurse but she only works part time or would she have to go back to full time hours to apply.
2. What would be the best visa to apply for
3. How would we go about this.
We appreciate any help you can give. We have been to perth and spent 6 weeks there from feb-april 2011 so we are certain of the state but uncertain of the best location around this area.
I have thought about the expos that are aroun but have heard that these are a waste of time. Thanks again, Steve

Hello and welcome to BE.

If you're puzzled and lost you've certainly come to the right place for help and advice. I recommend you repost in the Australia Immigration Forum. There may also be relevant information in the BE Wiki. Please read through the stickied threads or announcements that may be posted at the top of each forum's index page.

We have a great bunch of people who post in our Australia Forums...they will give you tips and advice on life Down Under. The link I have given you will take you to the main index page of the Australia Forum...at the top of the page you will see a list of sub forums. The top forum is the Immigration Forum...the Main forum is for topics relating to Australia and The Barbie is for general chit chat.

Kelli28, Sherlock Holmes and newjersey are the concierges for the Australia forums...so if you have any problems finding your way around our many forums they will be pleased to help you.

For all other concerns or problems please contact a moderator or admin. Every BE forum has at least one moderator dedicated to that forum...Australia has 4...Cresta57, Monneypenny20,, Sonlymewalter and Alfresco.

I hope you enjoy your time with us and don't forget to shout out should you require any help. Good luck.

Hi Southwalian

I see Jerseygirl has given you the link to the Australia forum, which is definitely the place to go for information, tips and advice from those expats who already live there.
That just leaves me to say welcome to BE and all the best with your plans

Hi southwalian, yep, the general view is that the expos are a waste of time.

Have a look in the Australia immigration forum here and you should learn a bit and also have a look at http://www.immi.gov.au/ and look at the find a visa link on the left in blue.

Good luck to you,

Alistair.

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.

Rosemary

Many of us were complete novices to online forums when we first joined BE...so don't fret. Remember there are always folk about who will be more than willing to help you out if you need help with anything.

All the best to you. You'll find a ton of info on here under the Aussie section and lots of people to help you. Moving abroad is always daunting but all the slog will be worth it in the end
