Hi niamh,
thanks for your reply

we will be going over on me as i am a hairdresser but i cannot start application untill march as i have been working part time for 10 years but they need you to have done more than 20 hours a week so i have put my hours up now and need to have worked them before i can apply. ( all very technical )
Im determined to get there though.
We want to go to brisbane as my husband knows someone over there in real estate who can give him a job.
where do you want to go ?

Abby

Hi
We are heading to Brisbane as well my husband is a welder and his best friend lives there and they will be working together when we move over. were about in Brisbane are you heading we will be up on the sunshine coast. hairdressing a good trade to have very highly sought after over in OZ apparently its hard to get good hairdressers and Beauty therapist (thats what I do) in Australia. pity they wont take the amount of years you have worked in to consideration instead of the hours per week. how long will it be before you can apply, did you talk to any agents yet. were are you living now there is an expo in Dublin this month and i know there is one in London in November as well as other locations around england have you been to one they are very good .you can find out lots at them.

the waiting to do any thing is such a pain isn't it

Hi Abby
That would be a good start for you give you a base while you look for something bigger and hopefully save you some money as well, I am living just out side Dublin , yep i think i will there seems to be a high demand but i think i rather be my own boss and work from home or in a few years have my own salon. all depends on how we a re doing.

we spoke with gomatilda Go Matilda - Your Gateway to Australia - Visa, Tax and Financial Planning for Australia - 5k they were very nice and work out the payments in stages we found a guy in cork who is registered but only looks after a small few his web address is oz-visas.com have a look at Australian Immigration. Information and consultations for determining your eligibility to migrate to Australia. - 17k cat vouch for them though just make sure they are registered normally its free for a consultation and it lets you know were you stand straight away also gives you an idea how straight forward your application will be some times if it straight forward you would manage with out an agent we are only using our for the tra as after that ours is fairly straight forward. I cant rem if i mentioned this but there will be an australian expo on
Venue Date Expo Website
Dublin, Ireland 20 - 21 October 2007 The Down Under Expo The Down Under Expo - Discover Australia and New Zealand
Manchester, England 27 -28 October Opportunities Australia Expo Opportunities Australia - EXP07
