Dear Mitchell,

Since you have been in Australia and Dubai, I guess you could give me a proper insight. My details are given below, please let me know, would it be better for us to move on to Australia or Dubai is better?
1. How is the job industry for Engineers in Hospitality industry in Australia?
2. Which places in Australia are best for him to secure a job in his field?
3. How much bank balance would be required after we migrate to Australia, until finding a job atleast? We dont have a big bank balance as one person had mentioned earlier, we dont have any FD, but we own a house in India 2 storeyed.(loan completed)
4. What is the cost of living in Australia presently? Is it possible to survive/make a little savings with one person earning? [We dont have kids yet but trying to have one badly ]
We dont have to pay taxes in Dubai.
Presently my hubby is the only earner and we stay in the company accommodation , water and electricity paid by company[2bhk apartment, with one laundry room and a store room, 2.5 bathroom]
Salary p.m is AED 9800 [almost AUD2600]+Medicals
We dont have any Superannuation for the job here. We need to save on our own. We have a 4x4 just one year old, its on a bank loan of AED 2621 per month+4% interest.

We have an Australia section on this forum. I would highly recommend that you post your query there as there are lot of people on the Australia forum who are currently going through the visa application process and would therefore be able to guide you.

Most of your queries are answered in a number of active threads there as well and I'm sure that the regulars would be more than happy to answer those queries which have not been previously answered in older threads.

It will come down to your personal preferences, aspirations and ambitions as to whether Dubai or Australia is the better place to move to. Both places offer different things in terms of your career, standard of living, etc. I personally prefer Australia but that's just me. Other people might disagree and rightly so as each person is different and after different things in life.

No need to apologise. There are a lot of us on the Dubai forum, myself included, who are currently looking into moving to Australia but we tend to post on the Australia forum, which is why I directed you there. Lots more information about the immigration process there.

ok..thats cool...I will be contacting Voitin Agency soon. All the procedures are so confusing, with police verification and all. Any idea how long it takes to get the visa, from the date of applicaiton?

If you applying for a 175 visa, it's approximately 12 - 18 months

If you are applying for 176 visa, your case should be allocated to a case officer within 2 - 3 weeks of the sponsoring state confirming their sponsorship to DIAC.

Your application can also be randomly selected for external checks, which can take months to complete.

If you are using an agent, please ensure that they are MARA registered and that you both are on the same page with regards to what the agent will do for you.
I know you are in Dubai but do shop around - your agent does NOT have to be based in Dubai. My agent in based in Australia and I've never had any problems with the fact that he is based in Australia. If anything, I've never had to wait more than 24 hours for him to respond to my query.
