I hadn't intended to extend this conversation, but since you ask, if I'd wanted to live there I should have gone thirty years ago. You need to have substantial private means, or a key job or skill to become an Australian citizen now. And I'm actually currently living in my native city of Edinburgh due to family commitments, although my home is still in Ayrshire. Edinburgh's not bad either, by the way!!
Oh.. sorry Fiverings. I guess I came across wrong.
Was really genuinely asking because I emigrated to a country I visited and loved. That's all.
One of the reasons I did it was because I didn't want to look back in 20 years time and wonder "what if..?"
And Edinburgh is a jewel in the crown that is Scotland.
