    Resident Return Visa help

    Hi possibly your in the same position I was in my visa had expired by 2 years. I had no strong ties to Australia. All the migration agents I spoke to told me my chances were slim. So I applied wrote a detailed statement explaining my circumstances why I hadn’t be able to come when I had my visa and how I would still be a benefit to Australia.after 2 months I got the 12 month RRV. So it is possible!!!!

    "Self-Employed" for TRA

    Hi i was in the same position as you as a self-employed roof tiler working for firms. what I did for the TRA was to send 5 years of books & tax receipt from the tax office if you contact them they will send statement to show how much tax you have paid to prove you were working these went back 5 yrs plus reference from who I was working for. hope this helps

    Bricklayer Skills assessment

    Hi Nik i was in the same situation as your husband but as a self-employed roof tiler-slater i learnt my trade onsite and was given a NVQ while sub-contracting. i used a agent to get my visa and they advised me to get a australian qualification as the TRA don't like it if you have not been trained at college so i got the australian RPL 3 and got through the TRA and was granted my visa I would ask your agent how confident they are with getting you through the TRA with no college work good luck
