  1. Hi all, I know some of you are going or are on the company sponsorship visa, wondered if you could give me some thoughts on the following, providing you are wanting to stay. :idea: 1. Has anyone thought what they will do after the visa runs out? 2. Has anyone been in this situation and what did you do? Been speaking to our agent who saying we might beable to apply through our uncles company but she has reiterated that it is only a temp visa. I said that I could maybe study whilst there to do hairdressing or anything. She said that this is still not a guarentee to stay the only trade she would recommend to study that she says shes knows will allow us to stay would be horitculture or Cooking?? Anyone got any experiences to share??:spinny: Thanks Em x

    My Husband and I are desperately looking to emigrate to Australia. However, due to the fact that we are not educated to a degree level, but have qualifications leading up to this level, we are unable to obtain a visa. The only option we can see is to obtain company sponsorship. My Husband is a Manager working for one of the largest energy companies in the UK and Europe looking after a large team of meter readers. My main job role is a PA / Executive Secretary to a Director and Management Team for a Worldwide Manufactuirng Company. As part of my main responsibilities I carry out Internal Audits for the company and have done for 6 years, whilst also having the overall responsibility for Health & Saftey within the Workplace. All we ask - is that - does anyone know anybody out their who may be interested in sponsoring people with our skills? CV available upon request! Look forward to hearing from you all!

  4. Hi I am a semi skilled car mechanic with 4 years experience but no qualifications. I am looking for employer sponsorship. We are hoping to move to the Sunshine Coast area. Anyone got any advice. thanks Peter
  5. Can anyone help???? I would like to emigrate to WA and have noticed they will allow you to do an online application to WA first then through to DIAC. APPLY FOR STATE SPONSORSHIP The Western Australian Government, through SMC, decides which skilled migrants are eligible for sponsorship under the SIR and STNI visa schemes. The Western Australian Government sponsors skilled migrants on the basis that you have a skill identified as one in demand. Applications can be lodged online. Please note that your skills assessment advice must accompany your application. The SMC will generally notify you within 10 working days if you have been sponsored under the appropriate visa scheme. Has anyone else done this with or without success, please???
  6. Gidday, I've got a meeting with Freespirit tomorrow about finding work that can sponsor me for a working visa. Does anyone know if they are any good? If they'll suck me dry before getting a job? Is going through an agency the recommended route? Cheers, James

Hi All Just got offer of sponsorship, I understand from the company that they have to start process and get approved for nomination, then get position approved Not sure what I have to do know - does anyone have any info on what forms (if any) etc I need to get done ? Does the company now own the whole process and I just wait for approval Many thanks for any feedback KamlaK:notworthy:

    Hi guys, We think this site is really good and have been getting tips and info from it since November. My husband is a plasterer with his own business, spent the last 2 months getting cv ready and qualifications/work experience etc. Approached an agency to start the ball rolling for skilled visa/skills assessment and we have been knocked back at the first hurdle by agency already. Even though my husband has been plastering for friends and family for about 8 years whilst he was a HGV driver, he only set up full time plastering business 2 years ago. Apparently he needs 6 years work history in this field. GUTTED! Been advised to get sponsored but how do we go about this?? Can anyone advise and has anybody else done it this way?? What about a state independant visa? Just need someone to give us a bit of advice to give us hope that one day we will get there. Thanx Jane L

    Getting a VISA via sponsorship

    Hello all, If I should try and get employment sponsorship for a visa for, say, a year or two: 1. What do you do first - apply for and get a job? 2. Is there the same TRA process to go through that is required for a skilled permanent residency visa? I would in fact qualify to go for a skilled PR visa (I think) but that seems a bit scary at the moment! Just a bit bewildered by it all, sorry for the dumb questions. :? If anyone can help me, thanks! Andy.

    Victoria state sponsorship

    Hi fellow poms, I'm preparing to apply for state sponsorship by Victoria for my SIR visa application. Apparently you're required to do lots of research about the state - has anyone here gone through the process? I'm clueless as to what they expect you to know about, where to find the info and how to show the state that you have actually conducted the research... :shock: If there's anyone here who knows what it's all about, please do not hesitate to share your knowledge with me! Many thanks!

    Sponsorship & Visa Questions

    Hi, Has anyone out there had any luck with employer sponsorship and/or the following types of visa: Employer Sponsored, Regional Sponsored, Temporary Business (Long Term) or Skills Matching using the skills matching database. Also, if anyone has experience of a sponsorship agency, is there one they would particularly recommend? Cheers,

    How does sponsorship work

    Hi My family are desperate to emmigrate to OZ but unfortunately my husband has only 2yrs experience in his trade (photocopier technician) which has just been taken off the MODL. He also has 5 years ATM engineering experience. Sponsorship seems to be the only way, but he is worried that once a sponsorship visa has run out we will have have to come back to grubby UK! I know you can apply for residency while your out there, but what are the chances of actually gaining it while your there. Any reply would really help, anybody out there who has gone through this way???????? Cheers Julie
  19. Hello everyone This site is fantastic. I am looking to make the move to Melbourne as soon as is humanily possible. Does anyone know of any IT related companies who would consider sponsoring me. I currently work in IT as a sales manager and have done for the last 7 years. A total of 12 years in sales and i am finding it hard with regards using skilled visa route as i do not have a degree or diploma - it is all on the job experience. Hope someone can advise. Thanks. Keith

    Family sponsorship

    Hello there We've just joined in this forum. We suspect this is a stupid question, but, if we can get family sponsorship does this make the visa process easier? Again sorry if this appears ignorant, we're beginners! Weather here in Scotland VERY windy!! K&M

    My husband and I along with our 10 month old son are seriously looking at applying and moving to Melbourne. I have an Australian passport (my Mum is from Melbourne) so would look to sponsor my husband. Has anybody sponsored a partner and was it a long process and did you have to have an interview? Will our son need a medical? Any info would be really helpful.. Thanks :?
  23. Hi all, I am about to start doing the paperwork for our visa application and I'm getting a bit confused. We're planning on applying for a skilled independent visa using my skills (I'm an accountant and have already had my skills assessed) and have enough points to do so (as hubby's occupation & age also go in our favour). However I've been reading about state sponsorship, and was wondering if we should go for this first before submitting our application? Or will it not really matter given we seem to be OK points-wise? Any advice greatefully received. Cheers!

    Hi I have a job offer in Sydney and my new employer is going to be sponsoring me for 4 years. The VISA was lodged 3 weeks, but I aint heard anything yet... my employers told me it would take about 2-3 weeks to be processed. Im really worried cos I have handed in my notice and my last day at work is Friday. I had to hand in my notice as my new employer wants me to start working ASAP. Can anyone else tell me how long they have had to wait for sponsorship? Also who is the best airline to fly with (i aint even booked my flights as I dont have my VISA!)
