Many people cannot get their heads around, moving to a country that they have not seen. On the immigration forums, people often ask whether they should visit Australia first and then decide.
Expats call these visits, “Look, See and Decide,” visits, or LSD in short.
Granted, this type of visits are also quite expensive. It is therefore essential that you know the pros and cons of such a visit before deciding to make it.
We have moved countries a few times, and we have undertaken LSD trips before all those moves. Before moving to Australia from Beijing, China, we did three Look, See and Decide trips to various Australian cities, before making our decision.
If you have made a Look, See and Decide trip to Australia, please share your experience in the comment section below.
