      Hi Dave a 457 is a temporary visa - no guarantee of staying if you lose your job - think you have 90 days to leave the country if you cannot find another sponsor. Great visa if you want an adventure and nothing else. Having said that I know lots of people who came on a 457 and managed to get PR but it is definitely not guaranteed - it is what it is - a temporary visa

      Hi Dave this is a little confusing - do you have a job to come to and the interviews are for your partner?

      Hi my partner is having interviews as she is on the skills list .

      I'm in talks with a courier company regarding a job for when and if we get there. It's the same work as I do in the UK so I'm not so worried

      You can apply for a PR any time particularly if she already has the skills assessment

      Oh dear, what happened ??

      From reading A LOT from what I can make out is

      Houses are cheaper in the mandurah area ?

      House are cheaper in general than the UK?

      If you go out drinking a few nights a week, smoke or want to dine a lot its dearer ?

      Cars are very expensive to buy.? But cheaper to run ?


      Where as in the UK your house is a weight around your ankle with the average house down south (Essex) being over 300,000 with shocking 35 year deals . Mines 892 per month and when my little boy is born any day now in 6 months my childcare will be 800 .
      This to me is crazy and leads to a hard relationship, to much pressure and no life.

      If I'm wrong on any off the above please feel free to put me right ?

      I'm trying to also budget what gas /electric /water bills are in Australia, silly I know but better to add to the budget insted of ignoring it .

      In the UK I pay 124 per month gas/elec and 700 a year water 3 bedroom bungalow
