The job offer has been accepted! The wheels have been set in motion. It all seems rather unreal. The next step would be to apply for the 457 visas but we will take our cue from the company. They have to take the first step anyway by nominating the prospective employee. Not too sure of what the timing is of all of this. An HR person at another Australian company somewhere along the line told me the 457 takes 6 weeks to process. If so, we could be there early in the new year. I'd better get cracking with some of the sorting out that needs to be done.
We are still in a state of shock! The job offer came through yesterday. I'm 99,9% sure hubby will accept it. I'm very pleased as included in the offer is 75kg of airfreight for each family member. That will help a lot before our container arrives.
