  1. Hi all Firstly, apologies in advance for any ignorance on my part, I am a newbie to this all. My husband and I are currently looking into our options to move to Australia. We have visited twice and it has long been a dream of ours to settle down under. My husband is 35 next month, I am 32; and we do not have children. My husband has been self employed as a carpenter and kitchen fitter during the last 10 years but most of his skills were acquired on the job and, as yet, he has no qualifications. He would be able to provide customer references throughout the years, photos/videos of carpentry work he has done, tax returns, copy invoices and letters from other carpenters he has worked with throughout the years. We would be willing to invest in any necessary training or assessments. The question I would like to ask is, do we have any chance of getting a 189 visa in spite of my husband's non-qualifications? Thank you

    Where do I start?

    Hello everyone, This may seem like an open ended question, but I want to know everyone's experiences of how they got off on the 'migration' foot!? We're thinking of doing it alone without a migration agent. What would people suggest is the best way to go about it? What were your worst experiences? We're desperate to go...but I really don't know where to start! Thanks Jo

  5. Hello all, I am a 23 year old young mother from California, USA. My husband and I are looking for a better future for our two children and Perth seems like a well-rounded area with opportunities for both myself and my husband as well as our kids. ​I am hoping to learn more about Perth and the surrounding areas through this site. I am interested in health care, taxes, jobs, cost of living as in rent/mortgage, utilities, groceries and gas/car expenses, how natural birthing and breastfeeding friendly the area is and public schools vs. private schools. All advice is gladly welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for your help, ​ Jordan
  6. Hi Guys Were in the process of getting our visas!!! We have decided perth but just not sure where,ideally no further than 40 mins to the city and only 10 mins from the coast. I have been looking at joondalop but not sure its what our family would like. We have 3 children 7,3 and 4 months, so a nice school walking distance,close to shops and not to far from shopping centres either. We really want to be in a small area that is reasonably priced rent,without being there earning its difficault to estimate but i think $4oo is our weekly price. We want to feel part of the community and want to join groups so being in joondalop is maybe to big? I really hope someone can help as it always helps to have others opinions. We have also looked further down at coogee but it seems to be a bit of a holiday place? Thanks guys Clara xxx

    Question for Expats

    I would like to know how's the cost of living in Perth? Is is a good place for Expats? And is having one job good enough to sustain the lifestyle of a possible expat like me?
