Me and my partner are wanting to move to Euroup in the next few months for good. We want to go some were that we can both get jobs and isnt too expensive to live???

We dont have a clue were to go due to the recession over there, we dont know where it has hit hard??? Dose any one have any idea what country/City we should look into???

We kinda want a warm country as were used to living in the Auzi sunshine

This doesn't sound like a well-thought plan to me. For one, have you looked into immigration rules? You're basically welcome as a tourist, but not as an immigrant.

Think it over, do some background reading and come back with a better plan and more concrete questions. You get better answers that way.

I agree with bentivogli.

Considering the number of people from Europe who (due to the recession) are looking for jobs in Australia and NZ your plan is not very sound.

If you are still under 30 your best chance is getting a Working Holiday Visa. But note that these visa are usually limited to a year, they do not allow you to stay indefinitely. It is a way to travel, not to find permant work. The way some Australians and Kiwis do it is that they move to a new European country every year until they either go back to Oz/NZ or find a place where immigration rules allow them to an immigration visa.

It's an old cliche, but it's true. Take at least double the amount you think you'd need to survive on for a couple of months, as it often takes longer than planned to get truly settled. The big stuff is easy. It's the little stuff that adds up and you'll be amazed at how fast your savings will disappear.

And take any job.

Good luck.

edit: Personal question but, why do you want to leave? Most people are coming to you!

Hey Cassie!

It's hard to bring it you down, but unfortunately the most of the posters are right. Things are not as easy as they should be in the "perfect world" and with the general tough situation around the world, chances are that European countries don't open their doors to immigrants easily. However I think Hope is the last thing you get to lose.

I was living in London for three years and it was wonderful. My best friend there, happened to be a wonderful aussie girl and I know for her experience that it's hard to stay there once the working holiday visa expires. Try to get more information to see another options to go there.


Good Luck!
