  1. Hi there i've never done this before so if i ramble too long or give too much info - sorry! :wideeyed: my partner and i are both social workers and have been offered state sponsorship for WA. having looked through lots of posts on this site i am beginning to panic about trying to find work in the perth area. my partner has DipSW and i have an MSc in SW. are the local councils the best folks to work for or are there other organisations that offer better opportunities? were there any problems with qualifications as long as balanced with experience? (both of us will be 3 years post qualifying when we move out with 4-5 years pre-qualifying experience) it seems to be really hard to get any useful information from any formal websites and we are really struggling to find jobs on any websites that we would be interested in. my preference is child protection and his is community care. Any hints or tips that you could give us would be fab cos we really have no idea where to start!! Cheers Freyja

    agent uk or aus based ????

    hi, could anyone please advise me if its best to use a uk or austrailian agent. also if its best to use an aus one, do the time differences created problems , ie delays etc. sorry one more question!!, what is the average cost as i'm going to need a 175 skilled worker for perth. thank you
  11. Hi all, I have a real dilemma and I'm hoping that some of the agents on here can advise? I have a 475 Regional Sponsored visa which I received in April 2011. The plan was that we were going to head to Perth in Feb however, I have been head hunted by an Australian company. The company has nominated me for a 121 visa and I have submitted the visa...we have both received acknowledgement that all is correct and has been lodged. The question is, can I go and live in regional NSW and work for a company that is based in Bondi Junction? My contract would be 'work from home' and so would not be breaking my 475. Is it possible for a company based in a non regional area to employ a 475 visa holder? This will be a short term measure whilst I await my 121 to come through which should hopefully be November. If you can help then I would appreciate as I am looking to fly out mid September. Thanks in advance Mike

    Visa 175 paper based application

    My paper based application for Independent GSM visa (175) was just recieved by the Adelaide Skills Processing Center on 26th May 2011. I am wondering how long time should I wait for their Acknowledgment Reciept and does any person have an idea about the timeline to affect the CO knowing I am from High Risk Country. Thank in advance. Regards, Malcom
  15. Dear All, I submitted a paper based 885 on the 27th of April 2011 via express post platinum and it was delivered to DIAC, Adelaide processing on the 29th of April 2011. I see that my money is debited on the 03rd of May as per my bank records. However, until now (06th of May) I have not received any official acknowledgement from DIAC either through email or via post. Please share your experiences in this regard. Thanks Deepak
  16. I'm looking for an agent based in Melbourne, any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks Eddy
  17. Hi Refer to the check list for 475 visa application, it shows that the F80 to be submitted with F1276. I have a doubt on this because they are stating that police clearance to be submitted in later stage. since i am in high risk country i think i need to apply for police clearance before the case officer assigned. can i do that?. is it necessary to submit the clearance cert directly form police HQ to DIAC? or i can get it to my home address and the can post to DIAC? Thanks Kumar

    Northwest based pet shippers

    Hi just wondering if anyone has used any uk North west transport agencies for their pets ? What was your experience and would you recommend them ? Thanks in advance :wink:
  21. Hi all you seasoned travellers out there. We are thinking of flying back to the UK next year for a 5 or 6 week visit and have been doing some fare searches on the net. My question is whether it is possible to book a return flight through a UK based travel agent because my initial research shows that with such a strong Au $ you can get a much cheaper flight than booking through an agency here in Au. Is there anything wrong/illegal using the return half of the ticket first, will the airlines allow you to do it?. Has anyone done it? It's our golden wedding anniversary next year and if we do go back then we intend flying business class as a one off present to ourselves, and the saving seems to be substantial. eg Qantas Melbourne to Edinburgh and return is around $18500 booked in Au, but through an agent in the UK Edinburgh to Melbourne and return is about UKBP.9500. (this is the price for 2 people). Ideas anyone Mike

  25. Hi everyone, I really need some advice to stop my partner from going crazy. I’m from the UK and lived in Aus for 5 years (on a 457 Visa) until March 09 when I was made redundant and had to return to the UK. I’m returning to Brisbane in July 09 and applying with my partner for De facto - Onshore Temporary - Visa (Subclasses 820). We’ve lived together since we first met in July 08 and have been together constantly (apart from the 3 months I’ve been in the UK). We will be applying ASAP from Australia but I don’t want to be sitting around for months ad months waiting before I can start working. Does anyone have any info on the time taken to process De facto Visas? We have all the relevant info, stat decs, proof of relationship and Police Checks. Any help from someone in the know would be great. Jock
