@ticatica: I don’t understand how being his dependent would make getting your visa harder.

Where are you moving from?

I just moved from the US to the UK with my husband. He got sponsored by his company for a visa, and they sponsored me on a dependent visa. The application process for my dependent visa was much shorter and easier than DH’s application process for his visa.

Does your FI’s company want to transfer him? If so he may be able to work out an ex-pat package with them where they sponsor your visa too as his dependent.

I’m not sure how aussie visas worked, but that’s what worked for us in the UK.

Well, I’m an Aussie, so I can safely say that it’s a beautiful place to live. Have you any idea which state/city you might potentially go to? We moved to London, Mr. Jag had work but I didn’t. It was risky, but after a few months I had found a job and we were set. (and OH, do I miss London nice that we are home.) Good luck! 🙂

First of all, congratulations on making such an exciting and bold decision!

I moved across the country with my Fiance (then boyfriend) a little over three years ago. We just moved back. Prior to this move, we were talking about moving overseas (Poland, Scotland, or the London area) for his job. He would be sponsored by his work and I would come along with him. Regardless, I did/would risk giving up my career path, but I trusted that things would work out somehow. At least we would be in it together, and he is very supportive.

Does your Fiance have a job lined up yet? Could you get a temporary/short term job while you wait for your credentials to get settled? That way you would have income while you wait for the right time to get a job in teaching. Good luck!

I would go!! I’m moving south to be with Fiance and I can’t wait for warmer weather.

I read a blog, a beach cottage, about a woman, her husband and their three kids that made the move from UK to Australia like 4 years ago.  She wanted to give her kids a great adventure and a different kind of life then the one they had in the UK.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that she lives on the beach.  If you google it you should find it, and maybe she can give some advice on making the move.

Good Luck!

I think going as his dependent is your easiest and least stressful route. Yes it will give you less time to line up your qulifications, but I don’t understand why that is an issue. I would think you would prefer having the downtime to acclimatise and look for jobs/sort out your qualifications. You will be fully adjusted to living in a new country by the time you start teaching.

@plantains: I agree with this 100%.

 

I moved as a depended with my husband and am now looking for work. We got here about a week ago and I’ve been off work for about 2 months now. I’m really enjoying having the time to explore my neighborhood, cook dinner for my new husband, and just detox a bit from the wedding.

It is a little lonely at times, but it’s really nice to have this time off.
