Default Indian moving from USA to Australia

HI,

I will be moving to Australia in July of this year. I have been in the USA for a while with my family. Is there anyone who has made such a move like this; and what was your experience? Which city is better to go and look for a job of IT? Any suggestion about schooling?

Thank you in advance.

Dude. There is no need to be rude. Not everyone has an answer for every question or share the same experience.

Ouch, was that rude ?

Apart from your question on Moving from USA to Oz, rest are all generic ones with no definite answers. I'm happy if someone answers about best City for IT, best schools etc, but they have all been discussed in various experiences thread.

There are plently of people who moved from US to Australia because of mostly GC backlogs for Indians. I did the same in this January after living 5 years in US.
Getting a job in IT is easy here if you have confidence and you know well what you do.
Living conditions, health care roads are better than lot of US cities. If you have any specific question please let us know.

Hi prseeker.. Why do you think staying in US is better than moving to Aussie? Please elaborate.

Hi,

So you waited till your PR neared 5 years and then entered AUS? Are there any challenges especially if you want to visit out of Australia? Is obtaining RRV an issue? I am in a similar boat. Could you please help to address few queries. Is there any issues to rent a house without job. what would be monthly expenditure for a frugal spending family of 3. Is there any specific backup money you would suggest before landing there> Sorry of my questions are overwhelming to ask.

--No need to feel sorry about asking questions. We all are here to help each other by sharing our experiences. I too followed this forum for 5 years before moving to Australia. Here are my answers to your questions.
So you waited till your PR neared 5 years and then entered AUS? - Yes, I had a full-time good-paying job in USA. I was living a comfortable life with my family. Initially, I hoped there would be something done by Govt to change GC backlog conditions. All my hopes were shattered when I heard the one specific immigrant's story on NPR(radio station). That individual lived in us for 30 years, worked in US and his kids were born in USA. He was never arrested before. Unfortunately, suddenly immigrants authorities deported him. I though there are millions of people who are living in USA and need Permanent Residency(GC) more than I do. Still those people are not sure if they will ever get GC. For a moment, just think about temporary situation of all DACA recipients. On that day I decided to use my other option to settle somewhere where there will be no fear of being separated from my kids. Being there at usa for last 4 years helped me to save money and gave confidence to move to a new country like Australia.

Are there any challenges especially if you want to visit out of Australia? --you just need to purchase tickets and need your PR documents. Of course you need mental preparation to move to a new country and that may take a few months.

Is obtaining RRV an issue? --I heard it's not that difficult once you have job and a rented place.

Is there any issues to rent a house without job - Yes there are. Why would you rent a place and sign 11 months agreement if you do not have a job? Better to rent a place based on job location. We moved together(family of 3 along with pregnant wife) and stayed in AirbnB for one month.
what would be monthly expenditure for a frugal spending family of 3 - based on which city you travel. I can tell at Melbourne it would be $700 per week in AirbnB Plus 1.5k per month for food, telephone, transport, health, initial purchases, etc..
Of course, you should bring saving for at least 3/5months. if you are in US you do not need much (will get good exchange rate)
Feel free to ask more questions.

I was also in the same boat (moving out of US due to GC back logs). I can relate to what you are talking about. Lot of people are doing that these days, most of them are going to Canada. and some percentage in that group are coming to Down Under
