    Painting and decorating

    HI All, As stated previously I have just returned from a year in Oz doing voluntary conservation work under a tourist visa. This was all perfectly legal, due to the fact that I actually paid a lot of money to do this! Prior to going, I was a painter and decorator, with my own business for approx one year, but with no fomal qualifications as such. My question is would this be taken into consideration if I was to get the required qualifications as I am sure they will want plenty of proof of prior work. Any way, I am off to Australia House tomorrow to start picking their brains, any advice on how to play that? Many thanks Simon
  7. Hi everyone, After this announcement of the new SOL on 17 May, I just feel even more confused about what is going on. We are 'DIY' applicants applying for a 176 visa under the Painter & Decorator Trade. Our application is already in, which allocated us 60 points for this trade. Does anybody know whether 'Painting trades workers' covers Painting & Decorating? I know the wording sounds pretty obvious, but who knows in the world of Australian Immigration. Does anybody know whether applications already made can stay 'as is' or do we have to change anything? Many thanks. Sam
