    Thanks Phoenix16 - I definitely agree, being on this forum has opened our eyes and I think it may have knocked our rose tinted glasses off! I have been reading constantly and see with the changing visa requirements that we could potentially get to the end of our WHV, love it and need to leave as no doubt the requirements will be completely different again. Tonight we will be having a big conversation. As you say I do not want to make any mistakes. Thanks for your help! xx

    6-8 months, wow! If he struggles to find work for that length of time , we will have a problem ! As well as the ever changing visa conditions defo sooner rather than later to get the permanent route on the go. Thanks again

    Thanks for your response ramot. I am glad it all worked out for your daughter and that she is happy and loving it! I am 26 and my partner is 27, the qualifications I have is my dental nurse qualification but I have been working within a housing association for the past 2 years progressing into various different roles within the organisation, my partner been doing his trade for the past 6 years. Yeah I couldn't believe how many people have went over there on a WHV and stayed, it's just took us a bit longer to get to this point. Thanks again

    Thanks for your response. I will take this back to my partner we know that you can apply for the provisional plumbing license while working under a licensed plumber while completing the GAP training, so that was our plan of action. I am glad I started this topic! Thanks for advice

    Thanks Ali. I was actually just thinking that, I hope that soon after arriving, I am loving it and we are ready to submit an application. We have spent our time saving the last few years as this was something we always wanted to try. Our long term plan would be Oz if it all works out, I see from reading other peoples experiences the application process can vary timing wise, getting accepted etc so the sooner the better! Here's hoping. Research for me!

    No I understand, I totally get what you are saying hence why I am asking all of these questions. Ok that is fair enough, I will definitely be doing much more research and making sure in the end up we make the right decisions, last thing I want to do is jeopardise any application in the future. My partner's plan was to do these exams so he could do plumbing work here and there so he is not under the same employer over the 6 month period and to earn a decent wage. I will definitely deal with the renting when I arrive and book into somewhere like you say. I do appreciate the words of advice!

    Evidently I don't, I wasn't in Australia for the full year.

    Thanks for your reply Ali, I am very much a worrier which doesn't help things, Ok I will keep this in mind.I just felt I had to try and see if I can live and sustain it before committing? May seem unreasonable! To be honest, ideally he would do plumbing but we are open to everything, I will likely do my dental nursing. Is that quite uncommon to apply for a working holiday visa, then be placed on a bridging visa while apply for a permanent visa (all going well obviously)?

    Because I did not want to go through the full visa process until I had tried to live and work there prior? We were actually advised this was a good idea before applying for a permanent visa. As I said .... I'm relatively new to it.

    2nd year WHV

    Hey everyone, Just looking for any advice ...... I'm still as clueless as my first post in 2014! some things never change My partner and I have been granted our 2nd year working holiday visas. My partner is currently waiting for a date to complete his Vetassess skills assessment within the next month as he is a plumber and gas engineer and looking to do that type of work once we have arrived in Oz and completed appropriate tests/training. As much as my partner would love to just book a flight and arrive, I would much rather a plan! So looking for advice on renting and what to do when we arrive as we do not know anyone, would it be best to book a hotel and look at properties? What is the job opportunities like for his profession within WA and also Brisbane? any advice regarding the GAP training for his trade on arrival in Oz? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks Melissa
