I am a nurse, hubby is a restaurant manager. He asked me when we first got married(4 years ago) to consider moving to Oz. I said NO cos I loved SA. However, we had a baby soon after and we then decided to make some kind of move, however 'stuff' got in the way.
We now want to move asap to Oz so that we can give our baby a good life and better chances at education. Luckily for us, we are not moving cos of crime, etc. We have already started the process. Have registered as a nurse in NZ and now applying for mutual recognition in Oz.
Have been told by the agent that it is all formalities now for us to go as the most difficult part(registration) has been granted, so now we are waiting for our paperwork(proof of registration as a nurse) to come through. We will be hopefully applying for 457 visas soon and then be somewhere in Oz.
My friend is in Sydney and used the same agent that i am now using so hopefully things start going smoothly. We have had a few hiccups along the way already but luckily nothing major.
