How much are you paying or how much did you pay from start to finish ?
Agent or on your own ?
Can i say how helpful you all are excellent website well done
£1365 total for agent.
$300 for TRA.
$1990 for main application.
Have not done medicals yet but for my wife and I maybe £400 to £500.
£3000 possibly for shipping.
Loads for my dog and quarantine but worth it. I think she will be around £1500 all in all.
Builds up but hoping its all going to be worth while.
The agent is optional and most people on this site seem to do it themselves but I felt more comfortable being led and advised by professionals.
Best of luck.
I used on on line company called ' Live in australia.com' who for us$400 provided me with all the forms, a breakdown of the process and would answer up to 3 questions a day. The service was available to me for 6 months.
I found this made the process quite simple, and they provide a checking service if you require it before it is sent to the DIMIA.
Then of course there is the standard cost of all the forms.
Hope this helps :)
We did it on our own - family of 4 (children under 16), 136 skilled. Spent about £2,000 on the visa process altogether, including meds, skills assessment etc.,
Flights £1,800, Cat £1,300, Shipping £3,800 (full container)
New Life .... Priceless!
I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows
We paid $1990 for the main application, $300 for the Skills Assessment, medicals and xray cost £810 (£190 for each adult, £150 for a 13 year old and £90 for a 10 year old plus 3 xrays at £50 each plus a £30 blood test).
We used an agent to help costing £1375 plus VAT. See www.ianharrop.co.uk if interested in their services. We used them becuase they are local to us but anyone would have done. We wanted the security of knowing we didn't fluff our application up.
Had a quote for one third of a container at £1085. I thought that was quite good.
Hope this helps
