    Family visa vs Skilled worker

    Hi, We have just started to look at the possibility of moving to Australia. At first glance we thought we would end up moving on a skilled worked visa as my Husband is a Chef. He would have had to complete an AQF3 as he did not train through an apprenticeship, he would have been ahppy to do this but obviously there is a huge cost and he was erified incase he failed. Having spoken about our plans with his father we have found out that his Dad is an Australian citizen. We knew he was born in Australia but did not realise he was still a citizen:laugh: So we think this will make the whole process that much easier. However from my understanding by taking this route what will have to happen is My husband will apply for citizenship and then we will need to accompany on spouse and children visas. But my worry is the cost, I knew that the skilled worker state sponsored Visa was about $2000 but that we would all be included on this. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children, it looks like if we went down the route of getting my Husband citizenship that we would have to pay $120 for him and then four lots of $1750 for each of mine and the childrens Visas. I am sure that the citizenship route will be the most straight forward but at that cost is it really worth it? Have I done my sums right would we pay for each visa in that way and is ease worth the extra money or should we plump for the cheaper option??? Thanks Kate

  5. Hi all, i have been informed, (and after readin AIWCW website) that the occupation of welfare worker currently worth 60 points, will be evaluated and reduced in points, but i dont know whether to 50 or 40?? I find it a little strange considering the job prospects for this occupation over the next 5 years is very strong! if anyone has any info on this id be grateful to hear it thanks kelly
  6. Hi Everyone We are waiting for our 475 visa to be granted , I have been assessed and sponsored by the state as a Welfare worker. My qualifications are equivalent to an Australian Diploma, and my skills and experience are with Learning Disabilities the elderly and some mental health. I have found some websites to look at, but i wondered if anyone could advise me on any organisations that i can check out for employement. Not sure how things work in Perth, but i am thinking about any, private, charity, local authority, agencies etc that i could approach. We are hoping to settle in between Rockingham and Mandurah, but will settle anywhere outside the Perth metro area for work purposes. Thanks:smile: Mand
  7. Hi all, my partner and i have been living in sydney for almost 2 years now, we're here with a 457. We'd like to apply for a permanent now, the applicant would be my partner, he's an architect (profession in demand), working for his company for almost 2 years; i believe the quickest way would be getting sponsored by his office with a 121 visa. Is there someone else applying for this visa at the moment here? We'd like to apply without an imm. agent but i have a few doubts regarding the english test (we're not english) and the skill assessment (which shouldn't be necessary if you've been working in Oz for 2 years already). Cheers, Julia & Stefano

    6312-11 Child Care worker

    Hi Folks I am just researching into a possible move to Oz. It would likely to be a few years from now but I am looking into the ways in which we could be accepted. I am currently studying to be accountant which will hopefully lead me to be ACCA qualified in a few years. I thought this would be only enrty into oz however my partner is a nursery nurse with around eight years experience as is qualified to diploma level. I came across an ASCO code 6312-11 Child Care Worker, she seems to fit the bill to be accepted under this code. My question is whether my daughter and I would be able to accompany my partnerif she were accepted as a regional skilled visa applicant? Thanjks

  11. Hi I am currently a civil servant in the UK and really interested in immigrating to OZ. I am not really sure if my job is on the skilled worker list or not, and also not really sure if there would be similar jobs in Australia. Do they even have jobcentres like they do in England? Sam

    Unskilled worker

    :confused:My husband doesn't have any particular skill, at the moment he works in a warehouse, we were thinking if he did his HGV licence and perhaps fork lift licence, this would stand him in a better position, for when we do finally get to Oz, what are other peoples thoughts on this, is there plenty of work for lorry drivers? Thanks Tania X

    The Perfect Worker

    The Perfect Worker 1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found 2 hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without 3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never 4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always 5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended 6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee 7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no 8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound 9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be 10 classed as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be 11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be 12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be 13 executed as soon as possible. Addendum: That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines.
