    Wrong advise from agent urgent help required

    Look your clearly miss understanding me. We know what the full costs ate for him and the lay out he has had to pay . No where have i suggested anyone has said its going to cost 11 thousand dollars for advice. My point is once you committed to one agent and move to another im fairly sure its not a simple case of paying 200 dollars. Yes fantastic for the advise and i would pay that for him but its what comes after that. Maybe im just not expkaining this in simple terms. Anyway my reason for initially being on here was for help on advice regarding working beyond the 6 months. Please pm me if you wish to continue otherwise. Dont give people the wrong impression of my questions.

    Wrong advise from agent urgent help required

    hi sorry but i totally understand he needs professional advice he is a young bloke with no support net work no family and like many young english travellers no huge bank balance. it was a figure of speach when quoting how do people find the money. This is a poor mans future and ive been part of pomsinoz for over 10 years my impression was this was a forum where people could ask for ideas, help and possible answers to maybe similiar experiences. I work full time so does my husband but even i dont have a spare $11,000 dollars in the bank. rent is expensive for these young guys and as ive previously mentioned he has paid a large amount of money up front. I thought someone on here might be able to advise me on the likelyhood on if he would have to pay again. Im a bit over it with this whole paying to get the right answer jargon now bit like the health care system im in. but hey ho thats fine thatnks people for your kind and welcomed advice.

    Despite being told it's illegal for the company to ask to pay costs they have and that's it. The migrant agent basically has taken a large amount of money up front too, so if he approaches another agent then surely he will have to pay costs again is that not true. And how do people afford to do this and how can this b fair. Migration agents surely should know and be able to advise applicants correctly so how dose the government view this if they fail the applicant due to incorrect advice. What concerns us is he only has four weeks on his working holiday visa left and now no paid job. If his nomination was lodged does that then mean he is on a bridging visa.

    Wrong advise from agent urgent help required

    Thanks for your replys. Firstly he searched for the agent himself not supplied by the company. If he changes agents then would he have to pay for costs again as he now has no income. Im sorry but this is really difficult for us as we dont know the system or process. His company are making him pay for any costs. Yesterday he was technecially made unemployed and asked to work now voluntarily until he paid the money off they had up fronted. Im searching like crazy to even try and establish how much is this usually just so i can see hez not being lied too. As i will report this company myself if this all goes wrong for my daughters boyfriend. Is the normal procedure for the agent to ask for the nomination fee from the employer? So sorry please can someone help. If i ring a reputable agent will they answer some of these wuestions for me. His time is running out.

    Wrong advise from agent urgent help required

    Sorry but I take offense to him being called an idiot. Yes he did know that and like ive repeatedly said the AGENT said he could continue to work beyond the 6 months as there was a way to get around this. He is a fantastic guy good at his job would not scam anyone is caring honest and wants to live here and is doing everything the agent as asked of him. he as no family support. this morning his work has made him unemployed but he can volunteer to work as he now has to pay his loan off for the visa. his company are not familiar with the sponsorship process and are also being guided by the agents who I believe are called Australian Odyssey.

    Wrong advise from agent urgent help required

    Sorry dont understand what you mean by agents dont find you jobs. I havent implied that they do. Hes been offered sponsership by his current employer who is willing to employe him full time for 3-4 years. His agent told him to continue working for this employer during the visa application which took him over the 6 month period has he was told it was ok. His whole future now gets destroyed on ill advice and fraud. That cant be right. Anyone used immigration lawyer or had experience similar. Im desperate to try and help him
  8. Hi im desperate for help hopefully from anyone with experience. My daughters boyfriend has already had one bad expetience with an agent. However over the last 10 weeks he has employed an agent to assist help him with an application for a sponsered visa. His current working visa expires 22.4.19. The process has indeed been stressful. The agent initially sold him the story they only take on clients they know they have a 98 per cent chance of getting a visa. So each week of emails and phone calls thete always seemed to be a piece of the jig saw missing. Now today with only 4 weeks left on his visa. He is told he should not have been working for his employer for more than 6 months. Now please people surely any agent who deals in this field every day would know this. Also would know this is a breach of his current visa too. But having being part of this journey knowing this a couple of months ago he was told he didnt need to finish work as there where ways round it. Can i please ask have they failed in their duty of care to provide the right information and advice and in thus doing so t his could now lead to his visa being rejected. This is what they are paid to do are they not. Im fuming that theyve waited almost till his visa dead line to highlight a mistake. How could this be rectified? They taken thousands of dollars off him. Surely this isnt right. Any advice please on how we could proceed. Changing agents not good advice need advice on where he stands with being given wrong advice which now potentially buts him in breach of working holiday visa. Tracy

    Just saying hello!

    Hi mamma midwife. I am a group practice midwife, i would not have come over if i had to work in the hospital as a hospital midwife. sadly and honestly i wouldnt want to work in a uk hospital setting so def not australia not even for the lifestyle. they unfortunately still have similar problems with staffing levels and lots of agency nurses and midwives. there are private midwives working independantly but i dont believe women should pay for a service i use to do for free so that doesnt really appeal to me not too different to mgp. absolutely would not work in a private obstetric unit as i really dont just go to work for the money no real advocacy for women in private practice and dont beleive in the old obstetrician walking in just to deliver at the end. I came over on a PR visa didnt want a temp visa and be held to a hospital incase i didnt like it. Theres no real specialist jobs for midwives unlike the UK and if there is then they pritty much love you to have a nursing background too. Sad to see that only recently none of our students who were direct entry mw got offered graduate positions although some were fantastic students. its still very old fashioned in areas such as child health nursing which is the eqivilent to health visiting as a direct entry midwife with over 21 years experience in all areas you can not apply for these positions to train for where in the UK yes. another area where we need advancing is post natal depression there is only one mum and baby unit in the whole of qld with only 4 beds i applied for a job there having been a link midwife in mental health in the uk and done many years voluntary work in mental health not even a interview again you need a nurse back ground. very hard to advance in your career , despite people telling you they love english midwives because of their traning. Group practice midwifery is good but midwives dont do it for long if you research it you will see many midwives feel burnt out with long hours and you are on call 24 hours a day. i think most countries are affraid of litigation and there are a lot of things i see very similar to the usa, but women read and research watch tv and still look for us to be their advocates for normality.

    Urgent and in need of help employer sponsored visa

    Hi thank you for your reply very much appreciated. This is where im finding conflicting advice. The and/or qualifications/experience. So some information i have research quote you need the qualifications AND the experience. Whereas how I have read it is the same as your advising and/or. So basically he could have a recognised qualifcation in a trade but if he has several years experience in the job his company have empmoyed him for and wish to sponsor him for thats classed as a good thing. Sorry but i dont want him to withdraw his application knowing he has a good chance or sending them off to another country when my daughters career is also affected too. Thank you

    Urgent and in need of help employer sponsored visa

    i dont think he minds if its short term as i understand it then he could always apply for defacto visa/partner after that. I m just being a real parent and my daughter is living with us as shes a uni student working part time which is still hard when studying weve been through every step of the way with her, i see midwifery students working additional jobs no way in the uk would this be possible. so how the government can expect on one hand proof of a relationship is to see joint bank accounts, tennacies, rent is a joke then in are day our parents would not let us live together lol. we dont want her to get in debt before she leaves uni, is it not possible to have a relationship without all of this lol. anyway then the suggestion just get married. im trying to read as much as possible but i also dont want him to pay some agent 100 dollars an hour to lead him down the wrong path. i know the company have sponsered in the past not sure re immigration lawyer.

    Urgent and in need of help employer sponsored visa

    Its not a case of were not liking what hes been told. But his qualifications are as a plumber and work experience and job offer as a mechanical fitter and please dont get me wrong. When we applied for our visa 10 or so years ago we wete told get an agent we wont get a visa my husband had skin cancer at the time and my son was over 18 with a muscle wasting disease all that expense and i flew in no issue at all i did it all only thing agent did was checked the form so was completely thrown by ill advice. So really appreciate if someone has been through the process cus at the end of the day its not the agent making the decision.

    Urgent and in need of help employer sponsored visa

    He has seen an agent but not a great deal of help. Im a midwife so i often see a similar situations ive seen couples go over to uk and nz live together for a year then come back but my daughter as spent four years mosty crying working so dam hard at uni to become a teacher as one more term left to go and it makes my blood boil to think that genuine people go to such extremes to want to stay together. Weve paid all her fees up front not been dependant on the government for anything and the only way i can think they can do it is to move away. Im fairly sure to have his plumber skills assessed on a pr visa would take far too long and think hes more qualified in the heating installation side which is not really something needed over here. At the moment he actually supervises other workers. Just happy for any help or if anyone been in similar position.
  14. Hi where do I begin. Firstly I'm writing on behalf of my daughter as a family we have been her nearly five years and have pr visa's no issues and can apply for our citizenship without any problems. I guess I'm in a situation where I'm seeing my daughter going through what might be a heartbreaking process of loosing her boyfriend though having to go back to the uk as his visa is due to expire end of April. he has been her on a working visa for almost two years and came to Brisbane approximately 10 months ago when they first met he is a qualified plumber but works as a mechanical fitter with a company her in Brisbane. Their relationship has flourished and and they have grown very close to one another despite us as parents feeling so worried this could end in tears knowing the visa situation. We are so concerned for our daughter as 5 years ago we came out with her ex boyfriend who soon went back home as he could not settle here and a long distance relationship pursued and she so deserved so much more, she herself hated OZ planned to go back to the UK to be with her ex but as the years went by and friendships formed she began to fall in love with Brisbane and the lifestyle and although still very much cared for her ex felt it was unfair to hold on to him knowing she didn't want to go back and he didn't want to be here. So now she's met anothe English guy who is the perfect gentleman. I'm heartbroken for her. The situation is he has been offered sponsorship by his company, which obviously you think great. Then you try reading through all the info and I can not work out if his current job is on the skills occupation list or not if there another route he could go down. He is a good worker, they want to have a relationship together and not jump into living together to have to prove their relationship like we did when we were young. I'm going round in circles and just feel for both of them, these guys generally want to be together and he generally does not want to go back home for at least a few years. ive seen under some skilled occupations Fitter (general) so wondered if this could apply to him rather than him having to be called a mechanical fitter. Some info state he has to have. Years experience in that role some say 3 years how strict are these rules. Surely if his company want him then does that not count. Any advice would be greatful. He has an agent but I don't think he is being that helpful. thanks Tracy

    Just saying hello!

    Hi i have been following your post with interest. I am a uk midwife now in Brisbane and did many many years of research on midwifery group practice. I had been a community midwife for over 14 years with a high homebirth rate and was looking for a model of care similar to community midwifery. Over several years I had been offered jobs but still couldn't take the final plunge until we arrived here in 2014 with only 8 days left on our visa. I loved my community job in the UK and my passion for normality and homebirths is what was holding me back. What an experience I have had so far plugs being taken out of baths to prevent women from labouring in water, social inductions so many un necessary interventions and mention homebirth then it's like you've committed a sin. I have some family here so came out 3 times on holiday before making the final move I still don't think holidaying can prepare you for the move. For me your job takes up such a massive amount of time in your week and you need to be happy I became a midwife to be with women to be an advocate and provide continuity of care, it is so different here. No matter where research has been done how long we have done waterbirths in the year 2019 some hospitals in Australia still do not allow women in water even for pain relief. Midwifery group practice is case loading and I didn't have to go through any supervision. Most hospitals actually do respect that UK train midwives are trained differently and have more experience than students here, as students often have very little experience out in the community with antenatal or postnatal care. Don't get me wrong I would never want to work in a hospital environment in the UK as that has its own problems with staff shortages. But coming here I realise even more I did have the best job in the world community midwife. private midwifery is very interesting and I often wonder how doctors get away with the lack of informed choice they fail to provide women with. If I was asked honestly if I've felt supported by members of staff as this was an issue for me coming in from the community to a hospital setting I would have to say absoluetly not and I've worked at two different hospitals now whilst I've been here. Good luck
