    not wanting to derail the thread that WR had going, i also have questions about Australia.

    for about 8 years i have wanted to move to Australia and i think i will be in a position to do so within the next 3 years.

    my questions are much more basic than what WR was asking. what are the requirements for moving from the US to Australia? do i need a sponsor? how do work visas work? etc.

    i am trying to figure out what i need to square away here so that i can make a clean transition.

    any words of advice from people who have made international moves?

    basically, all info and advice is welcome as i am just getting really serious about this and WRs thread has really got a fire under me to start researching this now.

    FWIW, i have been to Perth twice and Hobart twice. i loved both immensely.

    I'm sure you are looking for personal replies, but since it is early morning in Australia, most of our Aussie TB'ers are probably still sleeping. This should hold you over until they wake up:

    Moving to Australia . Straight from the Australian government.

    thanks MJ5150, i figured most were either still sleeping or more likely, partying (as aussies do)

    that link makes it look almost too easy.
