      hiya guys ,,id ring an agent to explain the differnt type of visas and whats involved and needed to apply ,most agents will offer you free phone advice,Go Matilda,Visa Bureau and Cheryl Bird all seem to carry a good reputation ,dont think youd go wrong with either of them ,good luck,your trades are sure in demand ,its getting the ticket here thats the big hurdle,

      thanks very much chellem, thats good to know that i would hopefully find work in oz.We would just love to live in oz and have abetter life style for our two children.As we feel britain has not much to offer at the present!!!!My oh he has 24 years experience in the building trade. so that is very useful to know that is in high demand,as the building trade in britain is not very good at the moment!!!!!

      Retiring to oz

      Hi Guys,

      Can anyone help and explain, in plain language, how I can go about retiring to Oz. I am 65 and sick of being ripped off by Gordon Brown and his cronies. I have looked at various sites in UK and the Australia House site but, whilst they have lots of info for people wanting to come out to work ( And good luck to them all ) I can't seem to get enough information on retiring. Any information will be very gratefully received. Thank You.
