      4. Hello, I am looking for a good, reliable and proactive registered migration agent. My situation is I've been on a 457 for almost two years, and they will sponsor me for the 186 through TRT. I am currently preparing my application and have sent off for my police certificates already. Currently doing my own searches for an agent of course but if it allowed to make recommendations on the forum then please let me know, which could be though PM I guess. The company sponsoring me has said the agent they were going to use isn't available but said they will look for somebody else, but as they are very slow at doing anything generally, I am taking the initiative and searching online and would like to recommend an agent to them. I'm aware of a couple of members on the forum who are registered agents, although I am looking for somebody more local- in Melbourne who is easily reachable and can pre-empt us on the do's and don'ts, what we need, what to look out for, generally informing us upfront of stuff rather than only mentioning it later when something turns up. Any good leads from personal experience , good or bad, would be most welcome! Thanks
      5. Hi all, My husband, who is a New Zealander, plans to apply for his PR (stream of subclass 189). The application states that there are two options - either apply for a HAP ID first and go for the health check, or lodge the application and get one done if requested by the government. I am inclined to apply for the health check first, but my husband wants to just submit the application. Has anyone had experience lodging an application without a health check? Would love to hear your thoughts. Cheers
      6. Help with big decision

        Irish and English couple, aged 33 and 29. Living in Melbourne for 4 years, we both met out here 3 years ago. Recently applied and granted permanent residency. Our plan was to stay for another 2 years to get citizenship and then move back home to get married and start a family. We would then have the flexibility to move back to Australia in our late 30's / early 40's (e.g. when the children are ready for school). The complication for us is the recent change from 2 years to 4 years to apply for citizenship. It makes decisions about where and when to get married, buy a house and start a family a lot harder. We are also struggling with getting good, unbiased advice (for example; family want us back home, friends in Australia want us to stay etc). A lot of peoples point of view doesn't go deeper than the immediate, emotional layer and we need to try and move beyond this. We would like some thoughts on two options we are currently working through: 1. Move back to UK or Ireland within the next few months, with the plan to return within the 5 yr return visa allowed with permanent residency. During our time at home we would likely buy a house and get married (maybe have a child or wait until we get back to Australia - tbc!). On return, we would be settling in Australia and get our citizenship this route. We like this option as our preference is to spend our 30's back with close friends and family. There is obviously a risk with this option that we would not return (and most of our friends believe we won't). 2. We stay for the 4 years and get our citizenship (at this stage we would be 38 and 34). After we get our passport we would likely head back to UK / Ireland for a number of years. During the 4 years, we would want to get married, put our savings down (e.g. buy a house or shares) and maybe even have a child. We would likely organise the wedding from Australia but go back to get married in the UK. On the plus side, we are here now and we will get to citizenship quicker. On the downside, we won't be able to spend these important years with friends and family. Overall, we only know life as a couple living in Australia (as we met here). So although we love it, we don't know what a life would be like living back in UK or Ireland. Add in buying a house, getting married and starting a family during this time - and the decision gets more complex! Thoughts?! What else should we be thinking about to help our decision?
      7. PR / Citizenship / Resident Return

        My partner and I, aged 33 and 29, are originally from the UK and Ireland and have been living in Australia for 4 years. We have recently been granted Permanent Residency in July 2017. We saw this visa as a stepping stone to citizenship, which would then give us the flexibility between UK / Ireland and Australia. The complication for us is the recent change from 2 years to 4 years to apply for citizenship, as we wanted to spend few years back in UK / Ireland to get married and spend time with friends and family. We currently believe we have two options: 1) leave in the next few months and return within the 5 year return visa 2) stay for the 4 years to get citizenship. In order to help us make this decision, we are looking advice on our visa, the resident return visa and conditions for citizenship. Specifically: Detail on how the resident return visa works within the permanent residency visa? Do we need to be living in Australia to extend PR / return visa beyond the first 5 years? Could we apply for extension from UK and then return after 6 - 8 years? If we left and didn't return within our visa conditions, is there any other way of returning to Australia later in life? (e.g. company sponsoring to bring me back over when I'm in mid 40's). Can anyone recommend a good immigration lawyer that won't charge a fortune for a 1hr consultancy?

      9. What are my chances of getting a PR

        Hey guys, let me just say right off the bat that my own country is shit (I'm in the middle east) Its really depressing here and I simply cannot tolerate to live here anymore. Its simply not a good life and I simply cannot waste anymore time living here anymore. One way or the other I am leaving and going to live somewhere else. I have a lot of money saved up and I'm planning to leave as soon as I can which is when I get a student visa. I would really like to immigrate to Australia because I studied there before for a bachelor of literature for 5 years on a scholarship. Now that I have money saved up I'm planning to come back again study at a TAFE school. My plan is to become an "Automotive Electrician" which is on the (MLTSSL) list Here is my plan: 1- I will Study an Automotive Electrician course (certificate 3, 4 and diploma) at a TAFE for 2 years. 2- once I'm done I will apply for a graduate Visa. 3- On the graduate Visa I will need to find a job as an Automotive Electrician. 4- Once I find a job I will apply for the "Job ready program". 5- If I obtain a positive skill assessment during the program I will then apply for RSMS, State or Independent Skilled Permanent Work Visa. Now my question are: Has anyone been on this path before? is TAFE a common path to immigration? What are my chances at getting a PR if I go through this process? do a lot of fail at getting a PR? basically is this a good plan to follow? Thanks.

      11. Hello. So we have recently moved to Australia on a PR granted last October. Since that time, our son has regressed and diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disorder just before coming here. We had already validated our visa. Drs here are not sure what he has though but he is regressing. We will be applying for disability funding. My question is, will it affect our citizenship chances or his? Its already stressful with what we are going though and people are scaring us even more that our citizenship might be rejected because of his condition. Thanks in advance.
      12. Third party sponsorship

        Hi I have just finished a two year contract as a Business Analyst with my current employer who sponsored me on a 457 skilled visa. With the recent changes to legislation and as a business analyst in a competitive market, I'm finding it difficult to find companies willing to apply for a new visa. Does anyone have any experience / had dealings with third party firms offering to take on the sponsorship? I mentioned this option to a recruiter when they pulled my interview when they found out I required sponsorship - due to 'past experiences' they were not willing to consider this option. Any advice would be much appreciated. Rich

      14. Fed Government Job with PR

        Hi, Has anyone successfully managed to secure a federal government job without pr. I applied for a job which said non-citizens only considered if no suitable applications are received from citizens. I've been offered the job as i was the best candidate but now they have to get approval to employ a non-citizen which is holding things up and making me nervous The government site seems quite clear it needs justification to be approved but otherwise it seems straight forward no more scary than uk employment law. So should i be worried? any experiences greatly appreciated.
      15. 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.
      16. Hello there, I really can't get to grips with the health insurance requirements for 457 visa... So, I am told I need insurance coverage when applying. Well, I live in the UK so I have the NHS. When I land in Australia I can sign up to Medicare which is granted on the spot. So why do I need extra insurance? Do I need travel insurance for my journey from UK to Australia? Do I need MORE than basic medicare access once in Australia - are they saying I need additional private insurance (I was going to get that anyway)? I just don't understand what is required here. I'm covered in both countries but I'm told I need to register for insurance. Very confusing! Anyway, can someone just explain this to me because it's quite frustrating! Is there a bog standard solution to sorting this all out that is tried and tested across the forum. Much obliged! Frukoz
      17. Hi, I'm from the UK, and have been doing my Australian tax lodgement for the year. I am due to pay the ATO the 2% of my salary for the medicare (just levy, not the surcharge). But my issue is that I have also been paying for the 457 health insurance for the past year, the minimum one that meets condition 8501. However, I remember reading somewhere, some time ago, that once on medicare, this obligatory insurance necessary to get the visa in the first place can be cancelled as medicare meets condition 8501, and that one has to contact DIAC to get a letter or something? When I called up the insurance recently to enquire about this, they said I have to maintain the insurance and she got quite funny about it. Does anyone know if, and how, one can get exempt from this health insurance, and also, could I get a refund for the $1000+ I have paid over the past year for something I didn't need due to having medicare? (if the case). Also, I was questioning the need of applying for medicare in the first place, as it has worked out a lot more expensive than had I just had the health insurance.. I just did it automatically as everything I had read encouraged to 'get medicare'. I don't understand the ins and outs of the system obviously, so hopefully these queries are simple to answer . Thanks
      18. Deal or no deal?

        I've been offered the chance to go and work in Sydney by my current employers, and wanted to get some opinions on the the deal they're offering me. They're going to sponsor me on a 457, and they're happy to also sponsor me for permanent residency via a 186 but I'll have to cover the costs if I went for direct entry now. The idea being they get me there sooner, but we'd get the security of permanent residency. I'd be getting 110K (inc super) as a software engineer with myself (working), partner (not working, maybe after we are permanent), and three school age children, and we plan to rent at first. Deal or no deal?
      19. Hi all, We are currently on a 457 visa and submitted our PR application. My partner has a conviction from 2007 which he has been asked to give details on. The issue is it was a drunken offence and he is sketchy on the details, for this reason and given it was 10 years ago. Can anyone give guidance or comment on how much detail they are actually looking for. Best wishes LCDP
      20. Hi all I just had my 457 approved a few weeks ago (was on 417). Great news, BUT... I was so gutted to see on my last payslip (Jul 14th) that I've gone from paying $1,370 in tax to $2,535! That's $1,165 more tax or a 48% increase—enough to pay my monthly rental cost twice over! I understand it might just be the way the cookie crumbles, but can anyone with more experience than me with the Aussie tax system confirm that it sounds normal to be paying so much more tax on a 457? It works out around 25% of my monthly salary is tax. Is there anything to be done? Will becoming a permanent resident help? Any advice hugely appreciated! TooEasy
      21. I have some questions related to Australian visa that I hope you could give me some advice. I am an international student and currently doing 4-year IT program. This is my third year of the program and also the work placement year which is part of the program. I am currently employed as an intern in an IT company. It has been six months interning at this place and the company has asked me if I am interested in taking a full-time opportunity after the internship. I am really excited about that but I have not told them about my decision as what I am concerning is that after the intern I have to go back to the university to finish up my final year and could not work full-time while I am in the semester (as stated in one of the student visa conditions) unless they offer me a part-time position (but I guess it would be hard as currently there is no part-time staff at my workplace). My question is what if my company are willing to sponsor me a working visa 457, am I able to take that and replace my student visa while I have not finished my bachelor degree (but eventually I will in any cases)? as apparently under working visa 457 I am allowed to study part-time and work full-time. I am just afraid as I have not finished the degree and have not get any official educational certificate yet, which could prevent me from applying this 457 visa (transitioning from student visa to working visa without completing the degree). I could not find any useful information related to my specific case online. I hope that if you know any information about my case and give me some advice, I truly appreciate that.
      22. 189 Jewellery Designer

        How can apply with this profession ?
      23. 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.
      24. Hi all, Almost 2 years ago I moved to Australia because I was sponsored by a company (457) to do a massive project with more than 400 people involved and I was the project manager for that project. Once the project was done I needed to move back to Europe because the company didn't have any work by that time. By the time I've moved back I've worked 1 year and 10 months in Australia. I really really want to go back, so my question is, what can I do. What is the best way to get a PR? Do I need to do the English test since I was already almost 2 years in the country and working. Is there any migration agencies I could contact? Tips? What would be the way you would take? All tips are welcome.
      25. Hi all, My 457 application lodged on Fed before the new policy change, my job has been moved to STOSL and result is still pending. There's no doubt that my visa will be granted for 2 years, no pathway to PR. Immigration keeps changing all the time, but the MOST unfair part for this 457 new policy is the government apply those new rule to who had submitted their application before 19th April. We followed the old rule to apply Visa, and come up with a result that we are not applying for. Is that reasonable ? Is that fair ? I am wondering is there any legal action we could do to appeal.
