I thought about this not so long ago. However thought with the worlds economy as it is, I don’t see this to be the best time to take risks.

However, if you do decide to make the move during this ‘lovely’ recession. Be sure to let us all/me know so we can join you! (I LOVE SUN TOO )

Today I learned that my country is not included in the list of countries from which animals can be transported to Australia. And without my 2 cats (Paco and Semo) I am not going to anywhere.

According to what I read on the Australian government website, I need to live in one of these “allowed countries” six months and then fly with the animals.

I feel, l have to come to live in England for some time :(.

At the moment, I’m still a high school student, but together with my cousing (same age/education) we’re planning on living/working in Australia (Sydney) for a year (or 2), so I’m definately learning from this topic.

Thanks!
I think it’ll be great, but I didn’t know I had to go through all these procedures, Hehe…

Many Aussies here btw :)

If you become either a New Zealand or Australian citizen, you then automatically have the right to live and work in both countries. I am a New Zealander and spend half my time in Australia/half in New Zealand.

I think the job of print coder and designer are good and in this field, you can get more knowledge. You can search local resources for designers on Google.

Hi, I do not want to wet anyone’s bonfire but spiders aside – if you are from Europe (assuming you are under 30) then you can go on a working holiday for 1 year (potentially extendable to 2 base don you doing Agricultural work whilst there). BUT to stay long term is very tricky.

You either need to be married to an Aussie (not a simple as it sounds as you must prove co-habitation and bank accounts etc), be sponsored by a company (again this costs a fortune for the company and is very rare unless you are highly specialised) or get a skilled visa – to do this you need to be in a highly demanded industry e.g. medicine, banking, specialised services etc. Design and media is not on this list. That paperwork can take as you said a year and will cost you into the thousands to do properly (it is worth getting help from a company who specialise in it because if you make a mistake you have to start over).

I am relocating from the UK to Sydney at Xmas under my current agency to set up a new office and there are even requirements on how many native Aussies we must employ and how much we must invest in the economy.

I wish anyone who wants to go to Aus the best of luck but STRONGLY advise you do your homework because while our industry is booming there it is not as simple as you might expect.
