johnmadden168 posted a topic in Visa ChatHi, My friend told me about this forum and that it might be able to help me. I have been in oz for the past 8 months and am currently coming to the end of my six months with one employer. I have been applying for jobs in my field. My experience: I have 9 years experience in retail banking in Ireland. I have a degree in business A professional diploma it Digital Marketing and a PRINCE2 in Project Management I have been looking into skillselect and other ways to try to stay in this country that I have fallen in love with. If any one out there has gone through something similar and had success I would love to hear about it and try to apply it to my situation. Thanks John
Hi, I'm new to the forums - apologies if this has been asked a million times before. My fiance is from the UK, I'm Australian. I'm currently living in Cambodia on a 12 month placement while he's back in the UK. We have been together for 3 years and previously lived together for 1 year in the UK. I finish up here around September and we've decided that we'd like to move to Australia. Although he could apply for an offshore partner 820 visa now from the UK, looking at processing times I don't think it will be through by September and we're both desperate to live together again (I don't have a visa now to get back into the UK!). He's under 30 so still able to get a 417 Working Holiday visa. Obviously getting sponsored would be ideal, but I don't know how realistic that is. Otherwise, is the best thing just to apply for a 417 to enter Australia and then apply for the 820 onshore asap? Is there any way he could apply for an 820 offshore now and still enter on a 417 in September if the 820 hasn't come through yet? Seems too good to be true, but thought I'd ask anyway. Is there any sort of minimum time he should be in Oz on a 417 before applying for the 820? Thanks so much.
