  1. Hi everyone,
    Have not visited this site for some time,so ill bring you up to speed.Tryed every way possible to obtain 457visa no-go!Always seemed to fall down with the companies offering me work,that they could not fill the criteria and conditions that this type of visa require ie:enough employes,clear tax and record accounts,employing home grown talent,ect,ect,ect.Cant beleive the goverment make it so hard for you to get in when there crying out for construction trades like mine,never mind,its there loss.On the positive side when i came home to Blighty i applied for job in Edmonton,Alberta,Canada and got the post!!!!Been working there for past 5w/ks,home for xmas go back jan7(cant wait)Got twp&visa at port of entry,3year visa,changed driving license(straight swap)new social security number and medi-care,wife&kids made up ,coming out the end of jan.So there you go,maybe it was not surposed to be OZ fo me but Canada is just as beautifull.No disrespect meant to the aussie immigration.
    Have a great xmas everyone
    Love&Respect
    Pete

  5. Hiya Cal
    The reaction from the can,s as i call them is great,they are very hardworking and hardy people,maybe because of the climate.Everybody who i have met either at work or out and about have been very friendly and positive towards me and the english on the whole,its been very hard sometimes to tear yourself away,speacially the women!!!!
    Merry xmas&Happy new year
    Regards Pete

    lol, all you men think about is women !!lol
    Glad they are friendly with you , it is hard leaving people behind ,infact i found the goodbyes horrendous but unfortunately it had to be done , it must be awful moving somewhere and not getting a good reception. Hope you can find some hot chicks over xmas,lol
