    457 to PR maybe a problem please help

    I called immigration just before i left employment and asked how long i had before i had to leave to country. They said that my employer had 10 days to lodge the fact i had left their employment, then i had 28 days from my last pay cheque, they then send a letter out after that 28 days saying that our visa had ended and we have 28 days to leave the country or if something is in the process of being completed like going through the process of being employed. This was over the phone from the immigration department so im not sure now after what everyone is saying it could be a case that we will be on our way home in the next couple of weeks

    Is Perth really as expensive

    We moved here in december 2011, and have found it hard to come to terms with how expensive Perth actually is compared to the east coast. The price of things is nearly 50% more than over East as they think everyone is on a mining salary and can afford to pay it plus its very issolated compared to the east coast cities. We find we pay on average $200 every 2 weeks on groceries which is nuts compared to the uk we would bay £120 a month on groceries. Also eating out is expensive and booze is pricey a typical pint of beer is $10 but spirts and cocktails are stupid prices $15+ The upside is its an amazing place and you dont have to eat out all the time, we have it as a treat maybe once or twice a month. We eat down at the beach alot on the free BBQ's Housing is alot to but if you look around a spend time looking and dont rush into things you can find a bargain.
  5. Hi all This may take a while to explain but bare with me. My family and I arrived in Perth on 1/12/11, I worked for the employer that brought me here on a 457 for a year pretty much to date, After leaving due to indifferences just before the xmas period i realised it could have been the wrong move. My final pay cheque was on the 15/12/12 which according to the 457 visa I have 28 days to sort something out. Which to my calculation is on 11/01/13. Then i have a further 28 days to notify immigration what im going to do (immigrations words). It also states that the company that brought me over is obligated to pay for our flights home. My first question is Do i have to notify said employer that i want tickets back to the UK by the 11/01/13? to be able to get the tickets home Over the xmas period until today i have been head hunted by 2 potential employers. The problem is one employer has said they can sponser me but will not say how much they can afford to pay me, i have an amount i can afford to stay in perth that i require but they is not sure he can afford it but wont say an amount. The other potential employer has said that my salary im asking for is fair and he may even be able to pay me more but he is unable to sponser me but they have said they may be able to pay for my PR application. But because ive only been in Australia for just over a year in a single employer, am i able to get PR? if so how? I have a degree in product design and work in the building services industry so i was wondering if i can get PR on that. Can someone please help and guide me on how i can resolve this and just get some advice. If you need any more information please ask Thanks Mark
