    Could this be our opportunity??.........please help!!

    Thanks for your reply. If we were to move to Karratha then it would be my husband going first and I would follow on with the kids and our 2 dogs in about 18 months when my daughter has finished her GCSEs. I really wanted to move to Perth so done a lot of research on there, I'm in the process of researching Karratha now. From what I've seen so far it's a case of you either love it or you hate it......my brother has lived there for years and loves it, would never move from there and my nephew who came back last year said we are crazy if we don't go.......we shall see what happens as the owner of the tavern is looking at his cv and is passing it to their migration agent.......so fingers crossed X

    I was looking at NT if I was to apply via myself. It says I need at least 1 years experience to be accepted. What are the techniques you have to do? Is it via Skype? X

    I have heard how expensive it is but our housing would be subsidised also through the company. Im currently weighing up the pros and cons..........I dont know whether to just go and grin and bare it to just get over there and go from there???? X

    My brother mentioned it a while ago but then the owners had a bit of trouble financially so nothing came of it until now. Thank you for all the advise and opinions I am most definetly taking it on board x

    Could I just ask, Just been thinking........ I am a qualified hairdresser but have no post qual experience, do I actually need experience to apply for a permanent visa or is it just for the awarded points.......If there is no set minimum experience requirement then I may be able to forfeit the experience section if I can get 20 points on the IELTS?

    Right, I get you now. I'll find out if they would be up for doing that. maybe it's a possibility for her to take time out and if we get citizenship she can apply to uni then, she's only 16, 17 in April and doesn't really know what she wants to do yet, so that may be a good option? I will speak with her tomorrow. Regarding school fees, on a 457 we have to pay $4000 a year so would that be waivered if we were on a 186? X

    Hi, Thanks for the replies. If any of my children said they weren't going, I wouldn't go, I just couldn't leave them behind for any amount of time. Chef is on the sol but my Hubby is 45 and only 18 months experience post qualification, so fails to get the 60 points. The place looking to bring him over, my brother works for and is really close with the owner so possibly would do PR, I will most definitely ask them that. I thought you could apply for PR after 2 years now on a 457 from 2012? Vikkey x
  11. Hello PIO's Hope everyone's had a good Christmas and New Year I've not been on here for a while as I thought our chance or opportunity would never be.......BUT.......my brother lives in Karratha and where he works are recruiting Chef's so we have a possibility of a 457 visa through them. I didn't really want a temp visa as we have 4 children, so I would love some information if possible please. 1. I am thinking of staying behind with the children for my daughter to finish her GCSE's next year, is that possible or do we all have to go together? Are GCSE's recognised for her to continue education over there? 2. How long do we have to wait until we can apply for permanent residency? Is it an easy process? 3. We have 2 dogs and don't want to leave them behind, I have researched a bit and the cost for travel and quarantine is approx £3,000 each. Does that sound correct? 4. My oldest daughter is doing her A levels will she be able to apply for university over there with them? Hope someone can shed some light and help us make this decision Thank You Vikkey X

    Australia Expo's?

    Hi Fifi69. Thank you for your reply. So are the treads negative towards the expo's? Both our occupations are needed yes, my husband now more so, with it being on the SOL now. We just wanted advise really as we are currently working towards our 3 years experience to qualify for the visa, though my husband would need employer sponsorship I would think as he will be 45 with only the 3 years work experience, where as I will be 35, though my problem is whether or not it will be on the list come the time as it has already come off WA and NSW. I'm not sure whether to go it alone or through an agent yet.............just want advise from a specialist, thats why I'm looking at the expo. Thanks Vikkey x

    Australia Expo's?

    Hi Everyone. I am currently looking at going to an expo and I'm wondering if anybody knows which is the best one to attend. There is Down Under Live and Working International. Would they both be the same? Our trades are Chef and Hairdresser if that makes a difference. Thanks Vikkey x
