Aus/NZ
« on: April 09, 2008, 06:21:31 pm »
Hi everybody

Sorry I have not been around for awhile been rather busy.

So at the same time as doing a free online assessment for NZ we did one for Australia.
Nothing from NZ so far but heard from the Aus side of things and apparently I am a business and information proffesional  ??? according to them. Anyway I apparently qualify for a skilled regional sponsored visa. :clap: :clap:

Aus is not my first choice but my wife seems keen.

Colin if you are given an opportunity to get into Oz I would say take it. It may not be your first choice but it is outta here and you don't know how long you would have to wait ot get into NZ. You can always relocate later. Despite all the banter Oz does have some endearing qualities.

Hi Colin and welcome, as this is the first post I've seen of yours ;) :blush:

We do have somebody on the site called "rodz" who was in the same predicament and is now living in Oz, but he wants to move here :)

Maybe you could PM him and ask him the questions we can't help with O0
