Default Nurse moving to Australia

Hello everyone, im 29 and a nurse moving to Brisbane at the beginning of July.
To say im excited doesnt quite come close!!
Im relocating with my little boy who is almost 9.
I completed the application myself without too much hassle and will be going as a permanent resident.
I'll be working at the Royal Brisbane and Womens Hospital.
Would be lovely to hear from anyone in a similar situation,
Bobbie XOX

Hi Bobbie,

Welcome to the forum.

I've moved your post to the Australian country section so you'll get a better response. If you have a look through the threads here you find heaps of information to help you, and some people in similar situations.

Regards,
Karen

Hi Sukh, thanks for your reply. It would be great to keep in touch and meet up on the other side! Who are you moving with and where from?? Im moving from North Devon, UK. Any ideas where you will live yet? We're thinking just North East of the city so we're a little closer to the coast. Wont decide till we get there and have a look around though. My sister and her partner are coming too. They have a case oficer now so are hoping for their visa really soon and then hopefully they'll be on the same flight as me.

Unhappy

Hi Bobbie
I am planning to move with my husband and three sons18,16,and 20mths, we are in middlesex in Hillingdon UK and hoping to move to Brisbane but still waiting for a Co so dont know how long it will take but I am Hoping not later than July. I don't really know where we will be living as yet (mad isn't it) but may be somewhere within 10/15 miles from the hospital to start with. I think finding somewhere to rent is going to be difficult as I will have to rent while I am still here. How about you? have you found anywhere? Have you got a start date yet or not.Sorry so many questions just sooo excited. You are so lucky you will have your sister with you I an going to be so lonley. I will keep you informed of my progress. Bye for now.

Good luck with the move Bobby, i am slightly jealous mind


I recently did an on-line check for myself and i got a massive score of minus (yes minus) 50 points.

In the meantime, if you need any help getting your belongings/furniture safely out there, have a look at these guys HERE.

Hi Jam, My QNC registration took 6 weeks to come through. Everything else took much longer! Whereabouts in the process are you? Have you applied for your visa yet?
I am still unsure of where to settle but have a great book thats helping loads. Its part of a series of 'Where to live' guides. Its called 'Where to live - Greater Brisbane' I would highly recommend it.
Keep in touch, Bobbie.
