Hi all,

I am a newbie (although I have registered a long time ago)... Seriously looking into moving Oz or NZ and have NO clue how to go about it..

It looks like we might be able to apply under the 175 (or is it 176) and 457? I am totally confused by all these terms and not sure if we will be able to tho..

All I know is that we want a better future for our kids. We NEED a better future for our kids and we can't see this materialising here :ilikeit:

Do we need to see a migration consultant or can one do all this on your own?

Consultants are very expensive aren't they?

Hope to get more info etc here!

Thanks in advance :D

Hi and welcome,

You can do it all yourself, we pretty much did and the advice you will get from the members of this forum will be mostly sound and good.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Yes, agents can be quite expensive, and as we needed every cent for our move, opted to go about it ourselves. Firstly, you need to decide which visa you qualify for. The 175 is Permanent Residency, and definitely the option you want to go with if you can. You didn't say what profession you're in. Perhaps someone here who's on the same profession can give you some advice.

Also, make sure you've got all your documents ready, so your unabridged birth and marriage certificates and a new passport if yours is expiring soon. Have a browse here on the forum and check some of the older posts, they can be quite useful.

All the best and if just ask if you're stuck.

Welcome to the forum ... make sure you check what the latest updates on the Oz goverment websites, they tend to change their minds quite often.

Good grief dis baie!!! Maar niks van hierdie proses is goedkoop nie.. I have to have my skills assessed (get an AQF Cert 111) and the TRA approval.. This alone is AUD3300 :ilikeit:

Where there is a will there must be a way!

Shew the cost is huge but the outcome (if positive) will be SO worth it! We are taking it one day at a time - tackling 1 step in the process at a time.. Dunno how else one will do it as it's extremely overwhelming!
