Hi, My husband and I( with our daughter) have been trying to move to Oz for the last year or so but unfortunately it is so difficult since he is 45 years old and cannot get a visa he has to be sponsored, He is a fantastic Carpenter he is always on the ball, we had a company also and he has 25 years experience but he hasn't been in work for over 2 years here. We would like to know if anyone has an idea if it would be too hard to get a 457 visa over his age or because he is a carpenter? also if anyone has a near estimate of how much would be need to get over please let me know. Greatly appreciated Kirsty.
:confused: :confused: :confused: My other half is a Carpenter, we have got state sponsorship fo WA, but the way things are at the moment we are now on hold until end of 2012 until a miracle happens!! We have spent about £6000 with agents but are now being asked for another £1000 to go with another agent who will look for work so we can get sponsorship.... is it recommended or should we sit and wait and see wait happens in April/ May with the new SOL list.I have been told it's rare to get sponsorship for Carpenters. I'm new today so apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place. Any advice help or thoughts would be great, speak soon Gemma
