Hi All,

Well after much consideration and lengthy debates we have decided that, we too, are "packing for Perth" :blink:... Our young family includes me, dad and our two gorgeous girls one aged 3 and the other just 8 months old.

We are going to be doing our PR136 application solo i.e. on our own as it is pretty straightforward. Hubby is a Mechanical Engineer with an MBA and I just have to add that after reading many of the application threads - all of you have given us the confidence to do this all without an agent!!

Actually I have just paid for dads IELTS test as he has to do it as apart of his Engineers Skills Assessement :jester: so we are atleast one step closer... well two actually as we have applied for the girl's passports as well - which was a hysterical story in itself!! I organised for one of those queing companies to do their passports as I didn't want to sit in home affairs with two youngsters - anyway the Co's representative arrived - camera in hand and my 3 year old refused point blank to have her photo taken... :jester: so I sat there trying to bribe her with anything I had handy... finally her nanny holding her hand and a box of smarties later - we got the teary eyed passport photo... funny little people!

Anyway - thank you all so much for your info on this forum - it has been a Godsend and I am pretty sure that I will be doing much of my research right here

Chat soon

Hi Sambo - good on you - it is a gutsy thing to do! Just thought I would throw a little snippet - I don't know if you have work organised but the Multicultural group here in Gladstone sent around a note to SA's here saying that engineers in ALL fields were being sought. You might like to do some research on that one. Just a suggestion.

Good luck and take care

Thanks all for the welcome!!

Thanks Pat for that snippet!! I showed my DH some of the carreer websites found all over this very helpful forum and he was absolutly SHOCKED to see how in demand engineers are - I think that helped in making our decision to leave easier.

Chat soon
