    Parents want to join us in Australia

    What about a 457 visa? See if you can find a company willing to employ your stepdad and sponsor him, these visa's only last 4 years but if they are willing to come over on a temparery basis then this could be their cheapest option. The company can then also sponsor him for PR but he would need to do it quickly as I think they can make Exceptional circumstances for the age requirement 49 to 50 and it becomes more difficult over 50. You should speak to an agent I'm sure they tell you better than me.

    457 travel insurance

    Hi we are going on a 457 visa and our visa agent said he didn't think our Lloyds TSB insurance would be enough so we took out health insurance with IMAN. He then said maybe we would be ok if we wrote a letter saying we would get health insurance when we got there and used our travel insurance to travel on, by then it was already to late!

  6. Hi all, I am new to this forum, me and my husband are thinking of moving to Australia he is a mechanic I have been trying to find out about wages and how much he might earn so I can work out if we could afford to live. I was wondering if anybody who is already over there could let me know what the wages are like as I have tried looking on the job sites but most of them don't specify wages or and the ones that do vary greatly. Thanks for your help.
