    TRA skill assessment. HELP NEEDED X

    thanx for that alan, it was the immigration dept in london who advised me he wouldnt need his aqf due to his experiance, ovsl we have looked down the 457 route too but it does seem difficult to obtain sponsorship for a plasterer as to why were now looking 189. if I sent you Christopher's cv could u advise me on what were best to do reguading our situation, im also a hairdresser with my nvq 2 but im not on the sol list which is why chris will try and obtain a visa x

    migrant agent for 457 visa, Help!

    hello, my partner is currently on a WHV on gold coast, were now looking into using a agent to start our 457 process, now chris is a plasterer so we knew it would be hard to get a sponsor by ourself! i attended 'down under live' yesterday and got really useful info off a agent who is actually bases on the gold coast! she said we submitt chris's cv to them, they find him a sponsor who agrees to pay the $51000 a year, they do the visa application for us, altho all this was to cost $7500. its the first contact we have had with a agent as ye, but was wondering if anyone else used a agent to help with 457 and how much was it?

    A few WHV questions for a newbie!

    hello. my partner had to do is whv via post as he is coming out alone and leavin me and our children in the Uk, even by post it was granted within 2 weeks, within that time i had to see solicitors ect so it happened pretty quick! its a lot faster online, but dont go to 3 party companies, use the immi.gov.au site as they only take £190 off u unlike other companies! reguading having the funds we have not been asked to see proof, weather or not they will at the immigration dept at the airport i dont no! we were advised by the immigration in london not to book flights untill its been granted! we booked his flight the same day we had an email confirming it had been granted! , its a good idea to give the aus immigration in london a call there really helpfull. its also worth lookin at flights via travel supermarket. we had a few quotes direct and they wanted £800 and we managed to get 1 for £650 by using travel supermarket, london heathrow are the cheapher flights x
