    Hi is your other half trade qualified? if not he has to do a trade assessment test.I am a joiner and we were facing a 3 year wait for our subclass 176 to get processed so decided to look for a job sponsor visa subclass 119.This also gives you permanent residency as long as you stay with the employer for 2 years,after such time you can pretty much do as you please.We fell very lucky and i got offered a job here in Margaret River WA and our visa was granted a year after we applied.I looked on job sites ie Seek.BEJobmail.plus check local online newspapers if you have somewhere in mind you want to move to.

We were however thinking of setting up a small online business selling crafts etc. Are we allowed to do this under the conditions of our 119 visa?

  15. we did it ourselves. all id recommend is to print everything that you send. i had a little flakey when i was filling out the form 80 as some of my dates were guestinmates and i was scared they wouldnt match. Take your time, be honest and its not that difficult as long as its a fairly straight forward case
