Can I work in both UK and Aus with 189 visa? in Skilled Visas Posted 3 hours ago 1 hour ago, cricha200 said: For me, I just feel "home is home", and I have a large family here with ageing parents. However, I am 27y.o and want to make the most of my 'better years' of life, and build myself professionally and have the life experiences I want that being in that corner of the world will offer me. Sounds good. I would urge you to get things moving asap, because being a social worker right now, you have an advantage, and it would be a shame to lose that. Currently, visa processing is almost at a standstill EXCEPT for occupations that are on the Priority list for Covid - and Social Worker is one of those occupations. It means that in the current emergency, your application will be processed much faster and you may need fewer points to get a place. Applying now doesn't mean you have to move now. Once you get your visa, you just need to fly over to Australia for a short visit to activate it, and then it's valid for almost 5 years. So you can take your time to plan for and make your move.
