We seem to hit a bit of a major issue. My husband is an Aeronautical Engineer and some of his work is naturally in the defence industry i.e. government. The government only employee citizens, except in exceptional cicumstances i.e. when no Australian could possibly fill the position. This means he is really struggling to find work as agencies are not interested as this whole issue is too hard for them and if he applies direct to the government he gets rejected because there is always someone else who can do the job even if he maybe the best candidate, not that they ever interview to find out. We know this is the case as he has spoken to the people he has been rejected by. Has anyone got any ideas? Our visas need to be activated by April and it seems to big a risk to go to Australia with this issue and no job. Help!
I have been looking through the immi documentation on my scenerio but can't find anything. It's a pretty specific case but thought i'd try here to see if anyone knows... I am here in AU on a GSM175 and have been here for 1.5 years. My wife is now pregnant so our next child will actually be an Aussie! I was wondering if there was any clause where I could fast track my own citzenship being a resident with PR and a child of Aussie descent? We want citzenship as I may get a job transfer in the coming year or 2 but want to be sure we can come back when that's done. Following the usual track I'd have to be here for 4 years before applying. Thanks for any advice! Grant
