Haven't been on the site for a few months because we been so busy with all our emigration plans...we are starting our adventure in 11 days, staying in Dubai for 5 days then heading for Brisbane. We have been fortunate to find a rental next door to our friends who emigrated 5 years ago, next door - give or take an acre !...the consultant I worked for in UK has also just emigrated to same area (Ipswich) which could hopefully open up an avenue for me.

As you no doubt can tell, we are… Continue

Advice re - Jobs and Banks

Hi all, bit of advice please from anyone who has had experience in either of these matters.   We have our 176 visa and will be setting off to Brisbane in Sept 11 to start our new lives.  


  • Firstly, should my hubby who is a builder wait until we arrive and then turn up on a site for work opportunities or would he be in a better position and perhaps obtain a job other than bricklaying if he sends off his CV to companies whilst still in UK?

Just so pleased to have the visa granted ..had begun to lose hope !!!

Will the case officer notify our agent via email, writing or telephone ? Could we still be looking at next year before we have any notification I wonder.
