Immigration and travel Australia/New Zealand

Any nice natural spots in either country? What are the immigration requirements? I have a cousin there but she's a medical student. I've heard it's also very expensive. Are there any pockets where it's more affordable and comfy?

    Australian visa requirements are relatively complex. You typically need a specific skillset to plug a shortage in certain industries.
    It is expensive but it's OK with a local income - housing and alcohol are expensive by local standards, but nearly everyone has a roof over their head and drink.
    Sydney and Melbourne are the main cities with the most opportunities, but are the most expensive. Sydney has nicer weather and pretty beaches, but the affordable parts are far away from the beach and are pretty shitty, I'd argue Melbourne is a better option if you're not a millionaire.
    Brisbane is our third city, it's smaller and has less going for it but it's alright. Warmer and more tropical than Sydney.
    Hobart, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra are boring and have varying levels of soullessness. Darwin is a miserable hell hole but popular with psychopaths who like getting drunk in unbearable humidity.
    There's plenty of quaint towns that are OK if you don't need much, but are usually pretty boring. Some to look into include Newcastle, Wollongong, Geelong, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast.
    The last one is great if you love surfing, partying and being a filthy degenerate.

      Do you have a labor shortage crisis like in North America?

        Yes, but they're primarily looking for short term workers like fruit pickers and the like. You'll be a shoe in if you're an accredited nurse though.

        What about a place like Cairns? You're next to the rainforest and it's growing rapidly.

        I mean, yeah, if you're into that. Not sure what long term visa skill shortages they're trying to fill there, probably doctors.
        If you're happy to just do a seasonal or 12 month stint, I'm sure it'd be pretty easy at the moment, just be ready for some cunt farmer to rip you off and mistreat you.

          Never understood how people manage to get exploited here. I haven’t dipped below $45/h even when I was doing shit low-paid jobs to get sponsored.

        Cairns boy here
        I'd say a skill in demand there would be aged care, loads of people from the South go up to cairns to retire.
        Otherwise the major industry is/was tourism so covid probably fucked that over severely. I'm heading back there in a month for the first time in ages so we ll find out. If you like rainforest, reef, hiking, that sort of stuff then you'd like cairns.

    I don't know if I could stand living in New Zealand, especially the south island, or Tasmania. I went to Victoria, BC, Canada for a few days. Crossing with the ferry was great, I visited Buchart Gardens, but after 24h I felt terribly homesick. It was so self-sustained from the rest of the world, no difference between Vancouver island and New Zealand, an island in the pacific. I was done visiting the town after three days, I felt much better being in Vancouver, even though I was still thousands of kilometers from home. I don't know how you can live at the end of the World

      What about high skill work?

        Read the specified occupation list, it lists jobs, required qualifications, required experience and what visas are available to you. Guessing that doctors and nurses can get in and no one else is just idiotic.

          For permanent immigration, you need to be high skilled, rich or be able to fill a skills shortage see

          But Australia is very generous with working holiday visas where you can stay for 1 or 2 years, and there is a shortage of fruit picking or hospitality jobs at the moment, so that will be easy.

            Your information is outdated, working holidays can now run for 3 years for many countries.

    I'm Irish and an Irish citizen, aren't the visas a bit more open to the Irish? At least as far as I understand it might be?

      The age limits are wider for working holiday visas and you are eligible for the 3 year working visa. For permanent visas read the links already posted in the thread before getting a job on a digger in the Pilbara and overstaying your work visa like every other brain dead slack jawed paddy retard over here.
