I'm a 60 year old woman and I'd love to emigrate to the Western Suburbs of Melbourne from UK. My son and daughter in law emigrated over here a few years ago and I'd really like to relocate out there to be near to them but I'm worried about not knowing anybody other than my son and daughter in law and not sure how I'd go about meeting new people. Has anybody else been in the same situation and who could offer advice?

Hi there,

I am sure you'll meet lots of fellow expats in Melbourne. You can join groups like meet-up and internations as a way of meeting other people who are in the same boat.

For information on work permits I suggest taking a look at the Work Permits for Australia page.

Good luck
