Comment here if you're on Dreamwidth and would like to be friends there! I need to sort out how f-lists work if you crosspost entries -- has anybody played with this?

Australia?

How welcoming is Australia to immigrants from the U.S? Do you need money/health/connections/useful skills to be eligible?

Just found out there's something that could very well be a miracle drug for BookGeekGal, but it's not available in the U.S. She's bounced Australia, the U.K, and France as places she could stand to live, where it is available. I can't speak French to save my life (I can read it, some, but fail epically at pronunciation), so I think I'd have to part company with her if she decided to move there. And if I was gonna move anywhere 1000s of miles away, I'd want it to be someplace with a lot of nature nearby (even if the weather is basically the opposite of Alaska, which was my first choice).

I'm fairly sure it's all a pipe dream anyway -- but I like to be informed, even in fantasy. Help please?

ETA: And can you import pet dogs?

2nd ETA: It looks like a no-go for BookGeekGal, more than likely, because of her health issues. Perfectly understandable -- most countries, especially those with any degree of publicly run/funded healthcare, take that stuff into consideration. But I hadn't researched Australia before.
