    Immigration Downunder?

    hi, we used immigrationdownunder.co.uk also or used to be known as live downunder, jan friar was our agent, excellent service, when we were contacted by the case officer there were no problems with application whatsoever, all that was required to be completed was police checks and medicals,(we were told not to go ahead with these until asked by the case officer) 1 month after being assigned a case officer we had our visa :-). one of the reasons for choosing them was that they had a uk office which we posted our doc's to, and could call easily for info, hope this helps.

    form 80 for visa 176

    hi dazla 80, i rang my agent this morning to question her about the form 80, she said until we were ready to do the med,s & pcc,s not to complete the form 80, as it has to be up to date, so we are waiting for a c/o to request this information, hope this helps.

    form 80 for visa 176

    hi there, we filled in our form 80 when we applied for our 176 visa in 07/09, now we are getting close to being allocated a c/o, our agent has said, if we are thinking of getting our med's & pcc's done she will send us a new form 80 to fill in, i'm a bit confused as to why but will have to do them again,my advice now would be get all the information you need to fill the form in and keep it safe until it is asked for. if anyone has anymore ideas on this i would be interested as well, thanks

    Carpenters - Vetassess!

    hi there, i did my trade test in feb 2009 (joiner)the advice i'd give is revise any parts of the carpenter critera sheet you maybe rusty on, make sure you are knowledgeable on relevant health & safety and safe working practices E:G using a ladder....check ladder is fit for purpose (no damage, correct length) area ladder is to be used is safe an secure ( ground is solid and even,structure ladder is to be placed against is stable, ladder feet and top are secure, area of work is cordened off and appicable signage on display) this is all stuff trades know, but my assessor seemed keen on this aspect of the questions he was asking, hope this helps
