  1. Basically I was employed in Brisbane on a 457 Visa from November 2009 to September 2010. The Visa was granted without any hassle whatsoever. Unfortunately personal family reasons meant that we had to return to the UK:cry: I sent my CV to a recruitment agent in November and had a lot of interest, a number of telephone interviews and 2 offers. After a lot of backwards and forwards I decided to accept one of the offers and respectfully declined the other. The Company that I accepted the offer from instructed a Migration Agent who contacted me on Christmas Eve with a list of the information he needed. This is exactly the same qualifications and work experience that I had when I applied the last time. I have had medicals done, arranged health insurance, everything asked of me. Today I received a call from my recruitment agent to advise that they were withdrawing the offer based on the advise of the Migration Agent that I may not get a Visa:arghh: Does anybody know if the rules on 457 Visa's have changed greatly since October 2009? I have over 12 years experience in my industry (including time in Australia) and numerous industry related and academic qualifications. I do not have a degree specific to my job but I have Higher Educations qualifications that are the equivalent to bachelor degrees in the UK. Anyway, glad I got some of that off my chest and have just drafted a grovelling email to the company I turned down as I know they are still looking for staff. Fingers crossed:eek:
  2. Hi Everyone! Long time post reader-first time poster! I need some help! Here is my story- had an aussie partner of 3 years, moved out to Aus to live with him in Nov 2009. Nov 2010 we split up. I had been on a working holiday visa and we were applying for our de-facto. Of course, not happening now! My employers were desperate to keep me so I started working on an Employer Sponsored 457 visa with them. Got rejected first time around as we didn't know about the wage threshold. Decided to try a second application- but had to leave the country as I'd been rejected once. So I also got myself an immigration lawyer so that there could be no more blips in the process. As you can imagine, I've spent thousands of $ on my last minute xmas time flights and my Immigration Lawyer. On Wednesday my employers emailed me saying that it wasn't going to be possible anymore - they can't afford me with the QLD flood disaster and bad economy. I am now left in a situation of having a whole life there in Brisbane, but no way to be there and work Please, please, please, does anyone have any advice?? Thanks for reading guys, Jammyllama

  5. I kinda thought this would happen, can the moderators give a reason? And once again, if this is a public forum, why are we not allowed to discuss matters that can severly impact prospective immigrants. if anyone is thinking of using an agent and wants to know which one im talking about mail me to mypomsinozmail at googlemail dot com
