i think alot of people underestimate the transition, difficulty with language and finding work. A lot a lot of areas have racism even though australia is a very multicultural country

The grass is not always greener on the other side.....and people will always fall back to an easy place when things get hard.
Many migrants I meet are unprepared for the amount of work, effort and change that is required to be settled in Australia.

Perhaps support in small families are very important and it's difficult to find any. For families with small kids or babies, the lack of babysitting or proper paediatrician care may be a turn-off. There are no parents to help or bring them to school while everybody is busy working.

Great comments - couldn't agree more.
On my case, l left Australia twice - and I am returning again
The first time I left, I guess, it was just to see other countries. Sure Australia is not the center of the universe - as a few Aussies like to think. Lived in UK, Germany, Spain, USA, etc. Sure, Australia is nice, but I never had problems with places.
On my second round, I returned to Australia as a senior consultant. Worked for a year or so, and then left again, mostly due to a better job package.
This time, I am sponsoring my de-facto wife + 3 children. I am now 52 - and I fear for my family. Not sure if they'll adapt to their new life. Things will be very different this time.

I am planning to visit Australia in near future and of course my search ended at why ppl leave Australia...I never thought finding job could be a big problem there.
Adopting to a new place never scared me since I lived in US,Canada for 6-7 years. And I was never homesick or never felt lonely. I am very sociable and I think I can make me new friends no matter where I am.
But of course without a proper job, or any good business prospects I think I simply can't make it long there. Is it really hard to find a job in Sidney?
I guess I need to read more and get ready for the worst or reconsider my trip to Sidney.

How long (in average) in your opinion will it take for an immigrant to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and start stabilizing as they were in their own country? Evidently, it all depends on personal circumstances and each case varies.

I am not suggesting for people to try other countries or even comparing countries. However, do you think there are other countries that provide an easier transition for the immigrant? Other countries dot not have any programs for intake of immigrants, such as Japan. Hence, the harmony co-exists in such society.
There isn't a set time for anyone I guess. My brother took a long time to settle in Aus and he's slowly getting the hang of it.

One of the main things you need to do in Australia is to leave all your baggage in your home country and start all over again. You need to realize that whatever country you go to - it'll never be the same when it comes to your home country.

The more baggage you have, the more you try to compare the two countries and with the initial hardships in any new country - your home country will win the argument. Hence, you need to look to the future and see if all the trouble is worth going through. My brother found it really tough and then started adapting in Australia and now prefers it more than his home country.

Hope this helps
