Early Stages of moving

Hi, my names Gerardo and I'm looking to move to Australia in a few years. I'm currently in school for Firefighting and. I'm almost done. I've been wanting to visit Australia soon and maybe even move there.

Obviously its a little overwhelming for me coming our of school, but I think I can handle it. The thing is, I don't even know where to start. Visas, Fees, Relocation for me and my pets, Bills, Schooling, Work. Any help would be greatly appreciated in getting me on my way. Thank you.

Hi there,

You need to have a look at the immigration webiste to get an idea of the types of visa's you are eligible for. All the information you need is there. When you have questions come back and fire away!

The visa wizard is good place to start: Australian Visa Wizard - Visas & Immigration

Hello and welcome to the forum both Mark and KM have given you some good advice and helpful tips, but as mark has pointed out doing your timeline would help everyone here to see where your from as each country has a different way of doing things, the requirements are basically the same but procedures do differ a little. Start by adding your time line and then as KM has said come back and fire away ( no pun intended) and im sure we can help you.

One thing i have learnt here is if you do decide to use your skills to find a job here then check that your qualifications meet the standards here and if they dont check how much it will cost you to engage in a course here, after all some visa,s only allow you to study for a few weeks.

Hey everyone, thank you for the feedback! It's been really helpful and thank you for the links as well. As I'm still in school, probably within the year I'll graduate. Is it still too early to be applying for visas? Should I start networking with fire departments? I've looked into work visas, and most seem to need a sponsor? Does that mean someone who's willing to hire me while I work there? Sorry for all the questions.

Have you considered a working holiday visa? It would take the pressure off trying to find a sponsor from abroad and it would mean you could come to Australia and look for yourself.

Where are you from and how old are you?

No need to apologise for asking questions, its just your first post was a little vague so you needed to be referred to look at your options before anybody could help

I think a Working Holiday Visa is ideal for you.

Haha, yeah I've gotta start grunge more specific. I'm from the U.S. and I just turned 22.

To he honest I never considered a working holiday visa. How do they work?
