  2. Hello! Long time reader, first time poster. I have been researching visas for awhile and now it's getting closer to the time I need to make plans. Our situation: I am an Australian citizen who has been in the UK on a working holiday visa which is set to expire in Feb 2018. It’s looking like it would be difficult for me to get a work visa in the UK for a few reasons. The main issues being that the company I work for is small, isn’t on the registered list of sponsors and the fact that the business needs to prove they’ve advertised the job for 2 months and can’t fill it locally. This doesn’t bother me too much because I feel ready to move back to Australia. However, I can’t just think about myself as my boyfriend (UK citizen) is here. We are both in our 20s. We have only been together for a year but things are going well and we are planning a future together. He is open to the idea of moving to Aus (we’re going there later this year and I’m sure he’ll fall in love with it haha). FYI - We do not live together. It’s tricky timing as he’s just got a promotion at his job. He works for a large international company which may come in handy for us if they are willing to sponsor him. His qualifications/experience is in marketing, account management, sales and E-retail management. We have been looking at what Aus visa options there are for him and I’m wondering what would be best. Work visa – Does his experience qualify for a work visa after the changes to the skills list? Does a company need to sponsor him? Work sponsorship – Perhaps the Australian office of his company could sponsor his visa? Working Holiday visa – As he is under 30 it seems easiest to just get a working holiday visa to start with. However, it’s a real shame you can only work at a company for a maximum of 6 months. If he entered on a working holiday visa, started working at a company and they wanted to sponsor him after 5 months can he switch to another visa type? Partner – This doesn’t seem possible as we don’t live together yet I understand work visas don’t count towards eventual permanent residency, is that correct? There’s so much to think about with both our jobs, visas and moving that I have been getting a bit stressed by it but I’m trying to get the process started sooner rather than later. I appreciate any insight people have.
  3. I am a Brit living in Oz and have been working on my 457 Visa for the past two years, with another two years remaining on my Visa. I am very unhappy in my current job and I really want to leave, and it has got to the point where I am willing to consider leaving without another role to go to. I am in the process of applying for a Defacto Visa with my girlfriend (we have been together for a year) but I am well aware that the time it takes to get this issued far exceeds both my current situation and my remaining 457 Visa time. If I choose to quit my job without another work sponsor to vouch for me, will I be able to stay and work in Australia after I have lodged my application for Defacto? Or can I only stay and work after being issued the initial part of my Defacto Visa? Also, would I only be able to legally work if a new employer sponsored me (if I can find one)? Would I be able to fly to and from the country whilst my application was pending (I had intended to go back to the UK for Christmas and already booked flights)? Any feedback would be gratefully received. Thanks.
  4. Hi, I have read so much information that it is leaking out of my head and I was hoping that you good people could give me advice. This is my situation: I am 33 years old living in London, my girlfriend is Australian and we have been in a relationship since April 2016 and have lived together since Jan 2017. My partners visa runs out in October so we are travelling for a month and then heading to Sydney. I work as a draftsman in the engineering industry and my first thought was to try and obtain sponsorship through an employer in Sydney. However through all the changes on the 457 Visa and various conversations with employers and agents over there this does not seem the best option. I was told by an immigration lawyer that to apply for defacto visa in Aus we would need to prove we have lived with together for a year so I could apply for defacto in Jan 2018. My thinking was that I could get a 3 month tourist visa and before that runs out apply for defacto and my visa would automatically go to a bridging visa awaiting confirmation of defacto allowing me to work from Feb 2018 onwards. I have been told that we should register our relationship in NSW asap, is this correct? does it help the defacto application? So as it seems that defacto is the way forward, my question would be, can we start the application for defacto asap and myself enter the country whilst awaiting this decision or would I still need a tourist visa? Any advice would be most welcome. Thank you in advance!

    Sponsorship/PR Dilemma

    Hi folks, hoping someone can offer advice for a friend who is going through some visa issues. My friend has been sponsored on a 190 visa for permanent residency (as an account) by they're employer for whom they'd worked for 5 years. However the business has gone through a recent restructuring and wanted to relocate him and increase workload significantly. So he left, with that and ongoing issues, terrible working conditions and the employer taking advantage of him and other visa holders he'd had enough. He is a qualified account and holds a BA in Marketing etc although was not strictly working as an account for said company. So, I'm hoping there is an other option for him, he is currently seeking work elsewhere in the hope another business will offer sponsorship. Has anyone got experience in this situation? Any advice would be great. Is it worth him going to an immigration agent for possible solutions. Thanks in advance!

  10. Hi, I am a boilermaker/welder from the UK, 26 years of age and am currently here in Australia WA on a student visa for the last 6 months. I am currently between semesters on my TAFE course and so have been working full time as a Boilermaker/Welder in WA. I am having trouble finding this company to sponsor me as I am employed via an agency, and I also have to go back to TAFE next week. I am hoping to change to a 457 or another temporary visa ASAP in order for me to work full time in my trade. I am currently based in WA south of Perth and living with my parents and other family who are all permanent residents of Australia but I am willing to work anywhere in Australia if I can get sponsorship (VIC, QLD etc). I am hoping to eventually to become a PR. I also have had my skills assessed by TRA and my trade is on the SOL list as Metal Fabricator 322311. Any help would be absolutely great thanks.:jiggy:
  11. Hi All, If you are waiting to here just tell us when you lodged with them and again when you get a decision from them - that way we'll have some way of seeing how long they are actually taking. We lodged with them on 23/3. They recieved our hard copies in Oz on 2/4. This might just give us all something to look forward to.
  12. I have recently discovered that I needed to have done my 88 days regional work and have my 2nd year WHV granted prior to my 31st which is now only 2 months away. I have a trade and already the offer of a sponsorship however as awesome as this would be it doesn't enable me the same freedoms to bounce from place to place as the WHV. Are there any ways around this or can I possibly speak to the immigration services about a possible exception through discussion. Don't wanna call and be on file incase this burns my bridges. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks poms

  14. Hi all, Im pretty much just starting out, im a 25 year old joiner looking at going down the state sponsorship route 176, to get a further up on the priority processing, rather than the 175. My ideal states aren't sponsoring my occupation, but WA is. After speaking to a reputable agent he informed me that if I fly to WA and then if I was to say id been offered a job in VIC, QLD, NSW I could move state, as it is not a condition of the visa? just an agreement with state???? I find this a bit hard to believe as everybody would be doing it. Any advice would be much appreciated. Dan

    Sponsorship options

    Good day, Im hoping someone will let me know what the best route for long term / citizenship stay in Australia is for for me: I have recently arrived on a Woking-holiday visa after living in London for almost 10 years. Before that I lived on a farm in South Africa - 20 years. Working in the property industry in London as a photographer/ floor planner/ energy assessor. I have found a company in Sydney that said they would sponsor me (if all goes to plan) as a photographer (which is on the CSOL list) and I would be doing my floor planning as well. the boss of the company recommended I head out and get my regional work done so I can get an extra year on my visa which leads onto the next sector of my enquiry - I have begun working on a dairy farm for my regional working Victoria which I've slipped right into (getting back to my roots of being a farm boy and pretty much managing a farm in South Aftica, I also worked on a stud farm in England in my early 20s for a few years). The farmer here has also offered me a sponsorship as Farm manager (dairy farmer on CSOL I would think) I really enjoy both forms work and would be happy either way - but what would my best chance of getting sponsored be and if one fails would it be possible to apply for the other?? What are the immigration Agents looking for when deciding on a new immigrant benefiting their country to the maximum? The dairy farm sponsorship seems a lot more definite than the real estate work but most of my recent experience is in Real Estate. Many thanks in advance for your help. Paul
  16. Evening all Sorry if this is a qustion that has come up before, but anyone with any knowledge please help us out. We are coming over on a 475 State Sponsor for SA. This is where we would love to be as we have lots of family there. However, my question is this, if my hubby cannot secure work within the first 6 months are we able to try another State? Under ther conditions of the 475 we need to stay for 2 years in the Sponsoring State (this would be great) but how flexible is this? Obviously we would speak to DIAC & the States involved, but is it a hard & fast 2 year rule or is there flexibility do you think? Is any one else been in this situation? Many thanks all

    Couple with two 457 visas

    Hi. I'm currently on 457 visa and my husband is my dependent, but last week he was offered his own 457 visa. Could he accept it and move to his own visa? And what if one of us lose the job, could I apply to join his visa and vice versa? I know it sounds very messy, but I would love to have 2 visas and feel safer. Last year I had trouble at work and felt trapped as I couldn't leave without finding another sponsor. Just by knowing we have each other's visas to rely on life gets a little lighter.
  18. Does anyone know whether there is a list of approved sponsors for the 457 visa, or whether there was anyway in which I could check to see if a company is approved to sponsor overseas workers? Thanks in advance
  19. We used to have a business in Sydney and a young Turkish couple (the husband worked for us) became our close friends. They married in Sydney and we were unaware that she overstayed her visa. He then overstayed his visa too and finally they both handed themselves into authorities. They were taken to Villawood detention centre and a decision was made that they be allowed to go back to Turkey. We paid for their return tickets and they were allwed to stay with us for the 10 days prior to departure. They were subject to the normal 3 year exclusion from returning to Australia. We are interested in having this couple come back to Australia and sponsoring them (or him) as we have a country hotel and we can trust them. My question is... I need a cook. Can he come over here and study to be a cook, have me sponsor him? If so what visa should he apply for? He is Thailand at the moment teaching English and she is in Turkey as her father just passed away. His current qualifications are as a sound technician and she is a journalist. I can't see how their current qualifications and my needs in the hotel match up. That's why I came up with a cook. When can his wife join him? How do I find an institution to train him? What courses does he need to do? Their exclusion is over in March 2015. Does anyone have a better or simpler idea?

    Which ANSZCO code to use?

    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. Basically, I have just left Oz as my 2nd year working visa ran out. However, my employer (a tavern in a regional area) is desperate to get me back as a manager. They have offered me sponsorship on a 187 visa but I am not sure which ANSZCO code needs to be used in this situation. I would be sponsored as a duty manager of a bar/restaurant. I have looked at codes: 141999 (Accommodation and Hospitality Managers NEC) and 141111 (Cafe and Restaurant Manager) but the info on both isn't too detailed. Has anyone been sponsored as a Duty Manager of a pub/restaurant on here before and if so which ANSZCO code did they/their employer use? Any help on this would be great as I want to get the application process under way as I know a 187 can take a long time to progress. Cheers

    Australian Visa Pickle

    Hi all! I'm new to the forum! Stumbled across the site while trying to find a way out of my Australian visa pickle. I would really appreciate any thoughts, help and advice on any opportunity to be able to work out here temporarily. My misses was given the opportunity to work out here by her company offices in both the UK and Australia (Sydney). Originally they planned to sponsor her which would of meant I could have looked for work as her de facto. Due to time constraints of us getting out here they sent her out on a working holiday visa and myself on a visitors visa with the intention of changing visas out here... They have now changed their minds and do not intend to sponsor my partner. This has left us with a bit of a problem. I am over 31 and a scaffolder by trade, which I can see is not on either the SOL or the CSOL. On searching the net I have found only one firm that looks like they sponsor overseas scaffolders. I have reached out to them today and am hoping for some advice from them also. Does anyone have any thoughts on the possibility of myself being able to work out here? We are currently in Sydney. Any help or advice would be truly appreciated. Thank you very much. Matt
  24. Hi guys, Any help would be great. I'm a time served carpenter with 8 years experience and I currently am a director of a ltd company in the UK (construction). I want to know if I need to go through the skills test to go through a 457 sponsorship as I have no official qualification? I've heard they are not necessary but i'm not so sure! Seeing if I can save some time and money! Can anyone please tell me what will be required of myself to go through the process? I am aware carpentry 457's are hard to come by but think I have a firm that will take me on. Many thanks, Terry
  25. Hello all! I've seen many posts about changing employers while on 457 visa but none of them has the answer I'm looking for. Quickly, I'm on 457 since August 2014 and lately my working conditions have been terrible. Ever since the visa was granted my boss started bullying me and always saying things like 'now I own you' or 'I know you have nowhere to go, you'll never leave'. Don't want go deep in there as it' a lost cause and things won't change so decided to find another job. Two days ago I found a company willing to sponsor me under the same ocuppation (Cafe Manager). They are already SBS approved and as far I understood they also have a nomination approved. My question is: my current pay is $56,000 per year and new employer said his pay is $53,900. I don't mind at all, just need some peace of mind and $2K less a year is very much worth it. But how will Immi look at it? Both companies are in Melbourne not far from each other (different suburbs, 15km apart). Also, I'm aware this might take 2 to 6 weeks but could it be any faster if nomination is already approved? Thanks!
