Guest  
3 Jun 2009  #1

Hello

I'm 26 years old polish male and I want to move to Australia.
What should I do and what should I know? How many money I should have to start there? What chance do I have to find a job? I'm an anthropologist (ethnologist) with a newspaer experience.
Could you tell me about costs of living there (I'm particulary interested in Brisbane)?

It seems like he speaks (writes) quite well already. But it's always good to improve language skills of course.

depends on your means and how much you earn.

the way things are going you're better paying a people smuggler and claiming asylum when getting to australian shores. it seems quicker than trying to get citizenship/permanent residency.

No country where deadly spiders can come up from the loo and nip you when you're having a dump can be called a paradise IMHO;)

The climate's great, the lifestyle is fantastic, the people are a good laugh but there's just too many things capable of killing me.

One of my students possesses such a copybook with Australian motifs.

I wonder, is it an original invention of a Polish stationery stuff producer, or was it copied from an English speaking country design?

Could such murals with chained Aborigines ever appear on a copybook of an Australian student?

I might have to google, because up to now all I know is that Australia does have a very "stern" stance on immigration. Since you're there, what's you take on it?

australia has a stern immigration policy on illegal entries yes.

but on the otherside we have been handing out permanent residency like swap cards to students (mainly indian) that come here to study in areas that are needed like hairdressers and chefs.

i think what flogtime25 was referring to was more the colonial treatment of aborigines and subsequent treatment over the years.

apart from that, i dont see australia as any more/less racist than any ther country i have been to.

That might change a bit with the AUD going up...

nah, the government has cracked down on college's that were exploiting the "loophole".

the students never intended to work as hairdressers/chefs, they just wanted the permanent residency.

The best thing 2 do is go 2 the Australian Embassy and get the details from them,as the criteria has changed in the last 2 months for conditions 2 emigrate 2 Australia.

Hi,

I'm Polish and live in Brisbane. In regards to skills if you have a profession then you will be regarded highly. I am a civil engineer, and there is a shortage of engineers in the country to keep up with the country's infrastructure requirements. However to satisfy the engineering requirements here, it helps if you are become a member of the Australian Institute of Engineers. LOL also it helps if you speak English. In addition to engineering, health and medical professionals, teachers are also on demand.

The professions I mentioned above are on the critical skills list for Australia.

I can live in the two best parts of the world Poland/Europe and Australia. Summer for Brisbane, and winter in Poland.

I can't really help you, but you schould login to znajomapolonia.com for some advice. It's a community portal, where you can meet reliable Poles that live spreaded all over the world (including Australia ofcourse). znajomapolonia.com associates people that profess worths pruposed by Catholic Church - and that's huuuge advance, because you won't be deceived in any way (you can realy trust them). They helped me, when I planned my trip to States.

Wow - some very worrying words amongst all I've read in this thread. I live in a region of Australia that I believe is arguably the best in Australia - The Pilbara !! I love it here - the work, the people, the multi-cultural acceptance, the peacefulness and it is a great area to bring up a child !!

This is one area that very few Australians get to visit since there is a bigger push for tourism in the eastern states. They have direct flights to Karratha and Port Hedland from most capital cities and there is plenty of work here. The fly-in fly-out factor alone is pretty amazing. If you get a chance to get work here with one of the many mining companies or sub-contractors in this regioin then I encourage you to take the plunge.

Hi All,
My husband and I are in process of sorting our visa and relocating to Bunbury area.
Are there any areas which we should avoid looking for the flat rental?
Also, do you know if there is a webpage which will give me any idea of costs of living? Real estate web sites quotes flats from 300 pw but I can't find any info on the council Tax (city Tax) rates, electricity, water etc.

Thanks for any feedback and I hope to meet you all for a drink later in the year (fingers crossed!).

Holly o'er my, people why the urgency to cheat this guy here or there? ?-) Well, yes, his language may be poo'r'ing out but who writes any other chuck in a f'n CV's or somth? He is not native, but so what? People in Western Europe sometimes do not understand the hole stomach of things, especially right after graduating.

Pardon me - guess I'm late a little for this talk, but sincerely also'd been reading about Australia, more or less. Yep, no Paradise anymore, but where it is now, you tell me. The point is probably to take trims and get away to the rest of the Kingdom. As for me - I get that some people are naive sometimes, but you just try to explain what is reality : so then someone may want to read your answers.

As for the topic. Sometimes it's too hard to make a decision but if it's made... For such a person who likes to travel I'd tell that: you may try your chance but for the sake of God, do not loose your line of supply. Because you never know what's gonna happen: may be you'll need a place to go back. And the best way to get some info - ask an embassy in your country or catch some native there, either. Plan is simple. Because I'm not that sure, that anyone would bring you a correct response on internet.

Good luck, but think twice before you do something.
