  1. Hi All I seem to have come over to OZ on a bit of a different route to everyone else but wondering if anyone might have a bit of advice for me please?! :wacko: I came over to live with my Aussie boyfriend on a Working Holiday Makers Visa as a skilled workers one isn't really an option for me, but now I'm not sure how to proceed. Ideally I'd like to find a job with a company that will sponsor me if I offer to pay the fees, has anyone gone this route and is it likely? The other possibility is to apply for the de-facto relationship visa, does anyone have any advice about making this process easier? I've heard it's a good idea to get a joint bank account, put all our bills in both of our names etc... I've currently only been here for two months and so have quite a bit of my visa left to go, and also if I haven't progressed with the permanent visa by the end of the year I can apply to extend my WHM for another year. However there are restrictions on working, I can only work for the same employer for up to six months so it's stopping me from going out and getting a good job. Can't temp forever! What does everyone think? Sorry this is a bit of a long question, am new to the site and have so much to ask! Thanks everyone Rach x

    Working while waiting

    Hi all, sorry to ask another question, so far we have a +TRA, State nom (W.A) and have sent away our stni sub 137 visa app and have started looking /applying for jobs. O.K Here it is, if a prospective employer says "yes the jobs yours but we need you to start asap" is it possible to go out on some kind of tempory visa until the permanant is granted (Think +!) Also when the perm. visa is granted (+++++++!) do all family members have to go in to the Country together, or can I go 1st others join later? Please dont slate me if this is the most bone question ever. Thank you all. Just for fun, do you agree the +TRA was the hardest form to complete?
  3. Hi all, Thought you may be interested to read this article I just copied from the yahoo 7 news website. Aussie working less to pay for groceries The average Australian is working less time to pay for essential groceries today than they did almost 30 years ago, research shows. The Australian National Retailers Association study showed Australians today have to work 229.5 minutes to pay for a typical basket of groceries, compared with 250 minutes in 1978. Hobart residents required the most work, at 260 minutes, to pay for the groceries, with Perth workers needing to work the least at 209 minutes. "Australians will be happy to know they are now doing less work for the same basket of goods and are much better off than their parents were," the association's chief executive officer Margy Osmond said. "Food now takes up a much smaller portion of people's budgets than it did over the past three decades." In the last 10 years (1996-2006) the amount of work required to buy the basket of groceries remained remarkably stable. The association said the independent study examined a basket of typical grocery goods including milk, bread, butter, flour, steak, eggs and assorted fruit. The study examined the time it took someone on the average male wage to buy the typical grocery basket.

    Working Visa

    Can anybody help? We are currently in the process of applying for a business Visa and have now found out that our 22 year old daughter who lives at home with us will not be able to come with us as a family group. Her skills are not on the SOL so we thought about her apply for a 12 month working visa with view to applying for something more perminant when she is out in Oz with us. Does any body have any ideas what the best way forward would be. We are not using a migration agent as my company is sorting our visa out for the Business Visa. :unsure: Thanks Mark
  7. Hi I have just registered on the forum. My name is Jenny. I am married to Mark. We have four children aged 24,23,20 and 17. We are just in the process of completing our 136 visa. I have a daughter who can not come out with us on the 136 visa because she not classed as dependant. She has a degree in psychology but can not get a job in the UK. Does anyone know if she could get a job in Australia and get to stay longer than 12 months? Jenny

    2nd Working Holiday Visa

    Can anyone answer this Please? I went on a year long work visa to Australia in 1996. I am now 34, but have enough funds in the bank to qualify for a WHV. I have recently applied for a new passport. Do you think I will be able to acquire a working holiday visa, for either country? As my passport will be blank. Thanks

    Working Holiday Visa

    Hello, does anyone know we could go to Australia on a WHV while our permanent is being determined?? We really want to be there by end of the year and all sold up here. I think we would need to leave the country for the permanent to be granted though. Also we have our medicals booked for June (these have not been requested) is this a good idea or should we wait until they are requested? Thanks for your help on this one. Est
  19. The Australian Federal Government has announced changes its popular working holidaymaker visa program. The most significant change means visa holders will be able to work for any one employer for six months rather than three. Study periods have been extended to four months rather than three. The Government has also widened its definition for qualifying fields of employment for the popular visa ‘extension’ program For further info, please visit: http://www.visabureau.com/australia/news/03-05-2006/significant-changes-to-australia-working-holiday.aspx Cheers,
  20. Hi ya I think i have asked this question before, with no responses, but now it is 9 weeks and counting till I leave with my other half, :shock: :shock: :shock: and we are ttyring to make sure we have a bit of an understanding of all we may come across. Partner is a brickie so will be working in the construction trade, know he has to have a red card, to show he has completed his health and safety course, but wanted to see if anyone else had any general information in relation to joining unions, etc etc, everything is so different here in the UK, and we want to make sure that he is able to work upon arrival. B :? :? :?

  22. Hi everyone My name is Andrea and my partner (Steve) and I are looking to do some work in Australia for 4-5 months or so over the winter period whilst our house in France is for sale. We also have a house in England but don't want to return there! My partner is an Engineer (electronics) and I am a teacher (IT and English) but I don't really want to teach formally anymore. We would consider any type of work and have just finished a complete renovation on our French property, I was trained in secretarial work and Steve has run his own plumbing and heating business in the UK. We would consider doing just about anything in these fields, but are quite happy with casual fruit picking, etc etc. Any advice about whether we need visas, what sort, how to get one etc or do we just arrive as tourists and search for some work then? Thanks for any replies! Andrea and Steve from Torquay, UK/Cahors, France
  23. Hi I am due to come to Australia in October. I hopefully already have a job and they are going to sponsor me on a 4 year working visa. My employers say that my girlfriend can come over and work on this, but we too have to prove that we have lived together for a year. That will be easy, but my girlfriend is a bit unsure as to whether she really is able to work on my visa. can anyone help?
  24. Hi - A real long shot but does anyone know what work with animals is like out there, pref Perth?

    Actually working

    Hi there! We are on a couple of months holiday before we arrive in Sydney and that on top of the relaxed London work environment could prove a stressful introduction the aussie workplace. The question being - what is it like in an aussie office? I've heard they work really hard, is there chatter, do lunches exist etc. Just trying to get my expectations to the proper level Also is there anyone who can help me with tales of their recruitment and pay package negotiation experiences? Did your companies haggle? What sort of benefits come as standard as opposed to needing to push for etc. Thanks, Wazza
