  1. Hey any qualified hairdressers in Darwin at the minute looking for a casual hairdressing job. We are very flexible if you only want to stay in darwin for a few months or weeks that's OK. But mainly needing someone for the month of December/January You can pm me here. Thanks
  2. Hey The salons don’t seem to advertise much on job sites. I have found they look for staff through there Facebook pages, or they have signs up on the window. Everyone is saying Darwin has quietened down a lot recently, house prices have gone down and so has rent. I found it easy to get work but I had to walk into salons and drop my cv in. As for my bf he is a cabinet maker and there is no work in his trade up here but he got a job in warehouse, so it’s all good [emoji4]
  3. Hi Rae I haven’t been on this in so long. I have been in Darwin for the past 10 months. Loving every minute and the long process was well worth the wait. Also before I came to Darwin I was dreading having to stay here for 2 years on the 489 but the time is flying here and the sun is always shining. Good luck with the visa process Laura

    Moving 457 employers

    Hi I’m asking on behalf of my employer. My employer has applied to become a sponsored salon and has a girl who she is wanting to hire though a 457. The girl is currently working elsewhere on a 457 but wants to leave ASAP and come work for us cash in hand until my employer can sponsor her. If the visa does not come through before she reaches the 90 day limit to find a new employer is there a bridging visa or will she be runing her chances of my boss sponsoring her. Hope this makes sense. TIA
  6. Hi brills I was the same as Vicky with the visa, I was going to apply to qld but while waiting for the vetasses cert hairdressing was taken off the list. I was fed up at that stage and went to New Zealand for a year. I came back last September and put my eoi in for NT in November. I have been offered a 489 visa just last week. I submitted the application and 2 days later was asked for medicals and the other documents. I have my medical booked for may 2nd, that was the nearest appointment. With regards to making the videos I set up a camera on a tripod and recorded a full haircut, colour, hilites, perm, mans cut and beard trim. I downloaded a movie editor online and muted them and set them on quick speed so they were about 7mins long. I also did a voice over explaining my technique. I also took photos of upstyles and sent them aswell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Vetasses duration

    I got my result 4 weeks after the technical interview but it took about 4 months after my interview to get my certificate, which you will need when applying for visa. In total it took 7 months from the time I sent in my first documents to getting my certificate. I did email vetasses a few times asking about the time frame and they emailed back each time!! Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Evidence of funds in aud

    I'm kinda expecting to be just offered the 489 but no harm in going for the 190!! At least it will be a stepping stone to where we want to be!! [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Evidence of funds in aud

    It states twice on the application to show proof of funds or assets "provide evidence together with a summary of all financial assets in AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS eg.certified bank statement". For two people they require $50000 or proof of assets.

    Evidence of funds in aud

    Hi I am about to submit my 190 for NT and I went to my bank here in Ireland for the proof of $50000 funds. I asked my bank to print my statement and show it in Aud as the visa requests all funds to be shown in $, I was told this is not possible and the best I could do is do up the exchange rate myself and show my statement in euro. What has everyone else done? I don't want my visa to be denied because the bank can't do a statement in dollars!! TIA

    Yeah!! That's amazing!! How long did it take from time of eoi. I am submitting mine this week, can't wait. When are you planning to make the move.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Sony I've read that you didn't need to prove funds for a 489 visa. Did they ask for any financial evidence. I can get a loan from family for the 190 but I would rather not have to, especially not knowing how long I would need to keep the money in my bank. Did it take long for you to hear back from the eoi.
