    I'm 20 years old and I'm going through LPN school in Aug. 04 and I've always wanted to live in Australia. How hard is it to go from the USA to Australia to work? My husband can do plenty of things, but welding or driving a semi-truck is his specialty.

    It would be my husband, 2 dogs, and me who would be moving but I don't even know if I could get a job over there. I don't blame the government over there for not wanting to have to much of different ethnicity over there b/c look how the USA is now and plus our Pres. is trying to legalize illegal immigrants from Mexico being able to just come and work without any type of papers or legalization.

    thank you for your time

    First off we are way more multicultural than you would believe!!! check out http://www.sbs.com.au/sbs_front/index.html

    Now you and your husband would probably be fine BUT you will not be able to bring your dogs - at least not without them going through at least 6 months quarrantine. See we do not have rabies here nor many other pests and so quarrantine is VERY VERY strict on importing animals.

    If you want fother information check out the sticky thread - there is a link to the immigration department website. If you still want to bring your dogs I would check out Australian quarrantine services as well.

    Thank you, I would appreciate that. My 2 dogs have had their rabies vaccinations, I don't know if that would make any difference or not. thank you

    I can't help you with information about your dogs either but I do know that when it comes to Australia and quarrantine the word the rest of the world uses is "paranoid" - but we are so unique we sorta havta be.

    Re your dogs: Check with the Australian High Commission. They should be able to point you in the right direction

    To work in Australia, you will need to pass the IELTS series of English exams with a near perfect score on the speaking section. There is a "sticky" at the top of this forum about working in Australia that may be of help to you as well.

    Please let us know if youi have any more questions............. :wink2:

    Hi, Rarry,I am applying to go to Aussi to work also. I am waiting for the result of the assessment from nursing board. It's been almost two months already, and I don't have any news yet. I am getting a bit worried now. How is your PR application going on? Hope every thing will be fine for us!

    Gwenith, a pity you didn't tell them to shove their requested apology right where the sun doesn't shine!
    To my fellow Australians..... It's one thing to embrace and welcome newcomers. It's a whole other thing to lose our AUSTRALIAN-NESS!
    To those contemplaing joining us, please do. But please do JOIN us!
