I am currently on a working holiday visa with my girlfriend. We have been here about 4 weeks and really like the country. We have seen a few of the main cities and decided to come to Perth and stay. We would like to stay here permanently, so basically trying to get the correct info for what visa's would be ideal for us. I helped my brother-in-law set up a business in the UK. We were doing loft conversions. I was able to do all aspects of the job, carpentry side and business side of things. I was there about 6 years. I left as I always wanted to come to Australia. Now I have and like it I don't want to leave. I don't have a carpentry qualification as I learnt on job. I have 6 years job experience with carpentry in total. So basically what should I do..... Getting sponsored seams difficult, tried lots of companies and no luck. Should I go on a student visa to do the carpentry certificate 3 course, but it can take 1-2 years and can cost a lot of money. Is there a way if anyone knows that I could do a quick carpentry course so I can gain the qualification to match my experience. Then there is the points based system. I am 29years of age - 30points, my English is ok so not sure if I can earn points there as I hear the exams are extremely hard, if your skill is on the SOL list then you get 10points carpentry is, but must complete an assessment of you skill I think, 6 years experience 15points, So all in all 55points. 5 short. how else could I earn the 5points. Also which points visa do I approach the Individual 189. Lots of questions I know. But I am in real need for help and advice. So please if anyone could help me with these questions, or can even point me in the direction of someone who can. I would be very grateful. Perhaps I could lend my skills to help you. Thanks
ihtisham20 posted a topic in Visa ChatHi, I got Australia PR 175 in 2011 and got married in 2012 ( After almost 6 month i got married). I stayed in Australia for 10 days in 2011 and after than i never went to Australia. Now my PR has almost 2 year left and decided to move along with my wife. 1. Can i apply for Partner Visa while i am overseas and not working in australia. 2. I am married since last 2.5 years, no kids. I heard Immi requires "PR sponsor to be usually resident in Australia before sponsoring the spouse"? What is definition of resident in Australia? 3. Is it mandatory Sponsor shall be employed in Australia at the time of filing the application? 4. If i apply in this scenario what are chances of success, as partner visa almost takes 8- 12 months. Many thanks in advance for your help.
