Hi,

Does anyone if shipping or taking extra baggage on the flight would be better option? When we came to Australia we were given two extra baggage as it was one way ticket and first time entry. Now we are planning to go back and wanted to know what would be better option. Or rather leave the items here as shipping would be expensive?

Thanks!

I've not heard of any airline offering the same going back. Would it be too costly using excess baggage?

Do you not like Australia then?

Its just that things are not working out well and its been two months since we are here and we are not yet into any job! So planning to go back and take up the job in India.

Yes excess baggage would be too costly to use.

Sad to know this. Which occupation are you in and which city?

:( very sad, if it's any consolation we only lasted 4 months for the same reasons.

What type of stuff are we talking about. Might it be cheaper to buy new when you get back?

Perth and I am a Java Developer and my husband is in to Mechanical.
I am a technical architect in JAVA/J2EE and planning to move to Sydney in June. I was taken aback by your post that you are moving back because you did not get a job. I am going there with a hope that things will fall in place in 2 months.

Hi Pawinder,

Sydney should be ok for software guys I fee. But not sure. Even we came with a deadline of just 2 months and people say it takes much more than that for few and its not right to give up so soon. When we were planning to move same people said we will get or atleast my husband will get one quite soon :D I think it all depends on your luck!

Good Luck with your move. Don't get discouraged by this thread. Its different for each individual. Its just that not many people will be willing to help others and you must be ready for that.

Sydney should be good for ICT. You get hundreds of job openings on seek when you search Java and Sydney. So you should be able to land a job if you are prepared and if you network smartly. Post your experience once you land.

Perth hardly fetches any results...

hi
if you want extra baggage services then you should book your tickets from india to australia or vice-versa with jet-airways because last time when i was going to australia then only they provide student extra baggage service so you should check jet-airways services may be they provide their service now also..:focus:

hi dear,

I am also agree with you Sydney is really a right place for Software people's. If you have a good technical knowledge of JAVA/J2EE and other software. Then you will really enjoy that place.
Further its depends on your luck and knowledge dear.

Good Luck.......! :)
