I have applied for the 175 skilled visa - but I understand this can take quite a while to go through. Is there any way I can get a temporary visa / another visa / some mechanism to stay in oz whilst my 175 is processed?

    Advice needed

    Hi everyone This is my first post on here just thought i would give it a go because i keep getting contradicting answers from various people and migration agents. Im currently working in Perth as an Architectural Draftsman on my working holiday visa. Ive started the process to get an RSMS 857 visa but it is on hold until they change the labour market testing. My job was advertised for 1 month insted of 3 but they are apparently reducing this to 2 weeks. Does anyone have a clue when this will be passed as i am running out of time rapidly. My WHV expires in february. Also im nearing the 6 month limit for working for 1 company. Does anyone know if this can be extended and how to do this? The only other option i have been told about if the rsms takes too long is a 457 but my employers dont contribute any funding to training schemes. Does anyone know if there is a way round this? Any assistance would be great. Cheers Dougie

  7. Hello everyone, I have spent some time reading through many posts in all the forums. I am Doris currently living in Essex and hoping to get sponsorship to move to QLD with my Husband and 2 children. My Husband Dave is an Auto Electrician with 20 years experience. I really need some advice on what our next step should be. We have decided that we are going to try for a 457 visa so that we can get a relocation package. Can anyone tell me how to go about finding a sponsor? We are hoping to attend the expo in February, but apart from that I don't really know what else to do.

    Skills Assessment Needed for 457 Visa?

    Hi Guys Although we've been trawling through the PIO forums for a while now, I've never written a question before, so I hope I've put it in the right place. My husband has got a possible job interview with Queensland Fire & Rescue Service as a Mechanic, we have approached the subject of a 457 Visa with them and it sounds like it may be a possibility. One thing I'm a little confused on is whether he needs to do a skills assessment or not - it seems the answers varies dependent on the job role? He'll be coming over as a Motor Mechanic which is on the SOL for Queensland. Also does anyone know if the Queensland Fire & Rescue Service has ever sponsored employees before? I would be grateful for any feedback! Laura

    New to Canberra - Friends needed

    Hi I'm 38 and have come to Canberra on my own to live the Aussie dream. I've been here just short of a week and am feeling a little homesick already. I have secured a house share and have one flat mate but I don't want this to be the only friend and of course she has her own friends. I haven't a job as yet as came in on the 176 visa. so I don't think thats helping and once I get a job I may feel more in a routine and such like but for the time being its dam hard knowing there is no support network in this town. Any help would be greatly accepted. Thanks Dottielott

    Great advice needed.

    I'm in the process of buying a business. Now the problem I have is that when I take it over it will have lots of loyalty cards in circulation. How it works is that you make 5 payments for your haircut and you get the 6th one free. So when I take it over I intend dropping the price by $5 ( from $25 ) and discontinuing the rest of the loyalty cards. However, I do not intend to alienate the loyal clientel that I've just paid a shed load of money for so if for example the cliets have 5 signitures and are due their free one I intend honouring it. So any ideas on what to do about the remaining cards in circulation? For example if the client had 4 signitures and only needed another one.? What would you do? I can't afford to lose loads and loads of money untill they run out, so I don't intend signing anymore, but I don't want to upset the loyal clientel either. Chris x

    Advice needed re shipment please

    Hi guys Im heading back to Kent, UK very very soon and had one quote from a removals firm initially. They have quoted me a 40ft container which will cost me $10,000. Does this sound reasonable as I think its very expensive? Could anyone recommend anything else? Im happy to pack the house myself (although will need the boxes etc) or shall i try and sell some furniture? God, I was expecting between $6,000 and $8,000 so to hear $10,000 Im really shocked. Please please please help Michelle:mad:

    Hey, So i've been on this alot with questions about 457 visa and everyone has been a great help! So our visa is being processed (boyfriend getting sponsored and i'm going de facto) but yesterday my boyfriend lost his job :no: This led to alot of discussions last night about what to do, leave, stay, hope for another sponsor. We just don't know what to do. Our WHV is up in 5 weeks so this is not giving us alot of time. Anyone been through this before or have any advice. It's such a blow bcoz i really don't want to go back home to no job. :cry:

Do they do an equivelant to B & B's over there? lol ANTHING ??!! Failing that can anyone loan us their carport? - we could get a few sleeping bags :eek:

    Mirror Order Needed

    I have been granted permission to remove my children from the UK to Oz on the understanding that I get a mirror copy of the court order done in Australia within 90 days (Jurisdition of leave) I have tried repeatedly to get someone who knows what this is to help.. I've been to lawyers to The Attorney General.. From Canberra to Perth and back again.. Some say that it's not needed as the head of state is the same in UK as it is in OZ (The Queen) Others just tell me that they don't deal with International matters.. Nobody seems to know what to do with me or this order.. The problem being, I only have 90 days to register it otherwise my childrens father has threatened to take me back to court an revoke his permission (the kids would have to return to UK.. He doesn't actually want custody of them tho, which means I would have to return to England with them as I am their main carer) If anyone has had a similar situation, or knows the right channels to follow, I only need to register this document or get a mirror copy or it.. I would be very grateful.. I'm lost and just keep getting sent round and round in circles.. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!! I'm at my wits end and time is ticking away
