Egyptian migrant forced to move across Australia for work

A migrant mother is having to move her young family across Australia after being unable to find work.

Suzan and Rafic Aliny moved to Australia in March from Dubai on the advice of her brother who fell in love with the country.

Despite having more than a decade of experience in their respective fields, both Suzan and Rafic have been unable to attain employment for five months, forcing Rafic to move back to Dubai and Suzan to relocate her family to a remote mining town in Western Australia.

'This is my last chance in Australia,' she told Daily Mail Australia.

Suzan, who has worked as a pharmacist technician for more than 13 years and achieved her education at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Cairo, says the terms of her $7,000 visa only allowed her to live and work on the Sunshine Coast.

'The immigration department said they needed pharmacist technicians in Queensland. I was told I can't live in Brisbane or the Gold Coast, I had to live in a regional area,' she told Daily Mail Australia.

'I think they (Immigration Department) should exclude this area from the list and not encourage anyone to come here again. There are employment problems in the Sunshine Coast and they know that.'

Suzan said she has not been made to feel comfortable by other residents and feels as though many feel threatened by her taking jobs from locals.

'Regional areas don't have any awareness that foreigners are coming to this country. People stop me on the street with my kids and ask why do you come to Australia, why do you come to the Sunshine Coast?' she said.

'The government should know the areas they are sending people to.'

Suzan says she will allow the family two months to settle in Collie, a remote mining town more than 200km from Perth, and if it doesn't work they will return to Dubai
