We have been in the UK for a week now and have met thousands of people at our expos and seminars in Manchester and Newcastle. I have been coming over to the UK for the past four years and I can say that there seems to be a change in peoples motivations for making a move to New Zealand or Australia. With the recovery from recession seeming to stall in the UK people who may have been postponing their emigration plans in hope of an improvement in the housing market or exchange rate now seem resigned to the fact that they may need to wait years for any improvements.
When you factor in the improving NZ economy and buoyant Australian outlook any gains in exchange rates may be wiped off by rising house prices in the country you are moving to.
It’s all swings and roundabouts
99% of the people I have met so far have asked me one question
“I want to emigrate and have done some research but I just need to know what to do next?”
Planning the move is essential but how can you make plans if you are unsure of where to begin or what steps and timeframes are involved ?
The answer is simple
Find out exactly what your visa options are, your job prospects in your chosen country, how long it will take you to make the move and what costs are involved.
That is a lot of information to gather and every persons move is different and this is where people get stuck. I see some if the same faces at our expos and seminars year after year and these people ask me the same question because they are going round and round in circles trying to figure out what to do and being distracted by the mountain of information that is on the Internet.
If you want to emigrate leave me a comment and I will let you know exactly what to do so you can start on your journey.
Well I am writing this while on the train journey down to Birmingham for our next seminar and from there it’s onto London for our next expo in London which is going to be massive!
If you are coming along by all means ask me the question and I will tell you the answer. If you want to make the move just be willing to listen.
Ka Kite ( bye for now )
