    Weapon (AK47) to Australia

    I have a fully decommissioned AK47 assault rifle that has been fully decommissioned to the point that it won't be able to be converted to fire in the future, the weapon comes with the decommissioning certificate from a reputable gun smith. My question is does anyone know or can offer advise if I can bring this weapon out to Oz with me as part of my furniture consignment? Thanks in advance

    Scaffolding in Australia

    Hi Ben, I'm currently working in the Pilbara and am in the safety business so cover a large geographical area and quite a few big projects, every site I have been on has scaffolders of some sort, either large scale with numerous lifts (modular or tube and clip) or the smaller projects to provide a physical safety barrier. There is a huge amount of work out here with many companies, try Austral, Monodelphus, Lycopodium etc. I am on site daily interacting with the above mentioned companies and project managers/supervisors and scaffolders are definitely in demand!

    457 Visa Granted!!

    Yeah when you get sponsorship and your visa is lodged with the department of immigration you get a TRN (transaction reference number), with your other details entered you can check the status of your online visa application, see link below - https://www.ecom.immi.gov.au/inquiry/query/query.do?action=eVisa Once its requested by your case officer you may have to attend a medical or xray (might be both, one or the other or not at all) dependent on your occupation, these details are again uploaded to enable you to check your visa status.This process is called ehealth as only certain clinics/hospitals have the capacity to upload your meds to the DIAC web site Hope this helps
