    Advice from other uk sparks

    Hi. Just to add on to what curly has wrote. The gap training has all changed now. Infact I'm doing it as we speak and our class are the guinea pigs. I can provide you with all info but it may take a while lol. Inbox me if interested in knowing the new course info. Cheers.

    Old 489 and 190 visa.

    Hi Can anyone confirm this for me. I've come over on a 190 visa as a general electrician and a friend of ours on a 489 as a carpenter. He seems to think that he has to work as a carpenter here or is visa will be provoked. Is this right as I can't see it being the case due to people struggling to find work and then have to take any job to get by etc. Look forward to your replies. Thanks

    Skilled 190 to SA

    Hi mate. I go in 4 weeks time and heading to Adelaide. Nerves kicking in now but imagine that's normal lol. Where are you heading to? It's a nice feeling when all your documents are sent and finally get a invite. It's just the long wait for the grant then though.

    Skilled 190 to SA

    Hi mate. I was accepted with 65 points last December. Have since had my visa granted on 2nd July 2019. My application was for a 190 with a wife and 3 children also. Like laver has said, when it comes to the 190 visa I don't think it's necessarily down to points total it's a combination of everything else attached to the application like profession, who else is going over, character etc. Good luck and hope it all works out for you.

    Electrician moving to Oz

    I used the down under centre and agree they were very good with helping. One thing though Wes was a plumber in Oz and loves to banter with sparks about which trade is better. Good luck

    We finally got our grant today. Lodged December 17th. Direct grant 2nd July Family of 5, 190 visa. So happy, final month felt like a year knowing they were going to slow up due to end of financial year. Good luck to everyone else waiting. Fingers crossed for you all.
