qihong posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all, I wanna claim 5 points for my work experience in Australia. I have been working with my company for 1 year. I understand that I need to obtain a company employment reference letter to support my claim. My company has written me a letter stating the entire period i have been working with my title, pay and duties. However, I cant provide payslip for the whole year. I only have some payslip. And also I did not get pay for the beginning 3 months but I get reimbursement for lunch and transport instead. Is it still ok to claim for the point? Thanks for answering. Regards, Hong
Hi, I am looking to move over to Perth Australia in July next year to work in a Bar and Grill restaurant. I secured the job through a mutual friend and the owner over there accepted. I want to go for a total of 12 months. Although when I looked on the visa wizard on the Australian Governments website, the results showed that I would have to switch employers after a total of 6 months! Is there a visa that can get around this? THANKYOU!!
Work visas rorted with help of lengthy jobs list "Singer, potter, caravan park manager, grape grower – they are among almost 750 occupations eligible for the 457 visa program to fill skill shortages in Australia. Workplace experts who have made submissions to the government on the legislation – expected to be voted on in Parliament on Tuesday – say the list must be culled to reduce rorting. A Senate report tabled on Monday recommended passing the new laws to deter what the government says is the growing misuse of the temporary skilled worker visa system. The laws, proposed by Immigration Minister Brendan O'Connor (whose brother heads the powerful CMFEU union), include mandatory advertising and other activities to prove that a job was first offered in Australia; empowering 300 Fair Work Ombudsman inspectors to police rorting of the scheme; and giving a 457 worker who loses his or her sponsorship 90 days to find a new position, instead of the current 28." More xenophobia from our ageing white Australian politicians, media, unions etc. but negative perceptions mostly seem to be based upon personal opinions, biases and anecdotal evidence. This then suggests, indirectly, that Australians are a bunch of losers and have much to be afraid of regarding foreigners, immigration, employment, temporary work visas etc.
