my names Jase and my wife is Hayley we have 2 kids Alex and Jonas. It has been a life long dream to emigrate to Australia and last year we took the first steps. My wife took her IELTS and obtained enough extra points to apply for her 189 permanent residency visa. If we had submitted our expression of interest a few months earlier we would probably of been down under by now. Just after submitting our expression of interest the waiting times start to increase massively to the point where we are now leaving the 189 visa application in whilst going down the sponsorship route. The only problem being we had wanted to be in the Gold coast / Sunny coast area
but now have to look towards Melbourne having no experience of this area we have turned to this forum in a hope to try and gather more information.
