OZ to France


Recommended Posts

French Embassy to US seems to have better info than FE to Australia site.

Broadly given French unemployment rates I think it very unlikely you would find a French employer ready to go through the hassle of arranging a visa for you.

There are French classic car businesses but you are unlikely to bring unique skills and knowledge to them so are unlikely to have enough clout under the working visa rules.

In terms of travel in the other direction my wife lived in Australia for 25 years and has dual nationality. Last time we looked I needed to make a huge one off non refundable payment into the Australian health insurance system if we wanted to move there. Both retired both in good health.

Have you ever worked in a foreign language ? Written stuff is OK but after 8 hour of business French followed by a couple of hours socialising my head used to feel like it was ready to explode.

... and Antwerpen has possibly the best range of beer in the world

Oh.............. definitely

And from what I heard, some of the nicest diamonds too. Not that I'd really know!

Oh.............. definitely not! They are mostly industrial and look like gravel!

But I must admit, I did see some lovely ones, very carefully guarded which were of the E. Taylor variety.

Hi thanks again to everyone for their input, we are going to go with the wife uk passpot option at thi stage and see if we can make that work for us, it been good to hear from people who have been down this road and actually live in france, some of the websites i have looked through just dont have the right sort of info. and i have to fly across australia to get to the french embassy in Sydney with an appointment to get any info from them. For all those whowant to come here, Oz is a very big place, lots of wide open spaces, and you cant drive around it in three weeks in a hire van, as we see alot of EU people try to do. The scenery changes from state to state as does the climate, it has a lots of natural wonders, but as a civilisation our history is only a couple hundred years old.

Cheers mate.

Not if you are part of the original indigenous population, it isn't

The Aboriginal people, were here long before the "white" settelers, they claim 40000years, but with only some finger paintings on cave walls, it a bit hard to tell, IN MY opinion! And thats a touchy subject, over here for most people, wont go in to it on here, but the traditional Aboriginal people who still live their traditional ways are a fascinating and unique part of Australia and worth the effort if you have the opourtunity.

I thought that it was now proved that the aboriginals have been in Australia for approx 40.000 years. There are many ways to 'prove' these things and I believe that they have. I don't see why they shouldn't have been there for that long either.

Still according to Sarah Palin it is only what 4000 years for everything.  

 

I believe the scientists.
