    Bit of a complecated one!

    Hi All I hope someone can offer some assistance and guidance? I have been offered the opportunity to take over an established franchise in South Australia, which I would like to do however I am not so sure how to actually get over there and start running the business. I don't have the wealth for a business visa, I am too old for a working holiday Visa, and whilst my occupation is on the CSOL I don't have the relivant degree qualification, and if I am honest I never will have. So, if I take on the franchise can I technically sponsor myself? I intend on going over again in September this year to get things rolling. I know this probably sits in the 'too difficult' box but your assistance would be appreciated. I have so far spoken to 2 migration agents and had very different advice. Thanks all

    Buying a Franchise

    Buying a franchise ? This is something that we have talked about, when we go to Australia to live. ( positive positive thoughts. Yes we will get to Australia ) Anyways. That's all we've done. Talk. I haven't really looked any further into it. Just visa searching has been a mind boggle. Ideally, once decided on an area. We'd love to buy a home and be mortgage free and use the rest of the funds to a franchise. But we're not 100% sure. I've signed up to a franchise newsletter for Australia, and was offered one, earlier this year. My god. the American based franchise wanted me to take it on for a year and I could still continue to operate it from Australia. Alarm bells started ringing. I know in the UK, buying, you do so at your own risk and nothings usually regulated. Is it the same in Australia ? Have any members who've migrated bought into a franchise? Angela
