Alan Collett posted a topic in Visa ChatThe Australian (one of the two Australian national newspapers) is reporting today that chefs, bricklayers and tilers are to be added to the SOL: Coalition opens way for foreign chefs, brickies "THOUSANDS of foreign chefs, bricklayers and tilers will no longer have to be sponsored by employers to obtain permanent visas, as the Abbott government eases skilled migration rules to address alleged labour shortages. Under changes backed by business groups, the three professions have been added to the Skilled Occupation List from July, meaning these workers will be able to apply for a permanent visa without requiring a sponsor."

Please help! My husband and i are desperate to emmigrate to Oz. My husband is a greenkeeper/mechanic and i am a childminder. My brother-in-law lives in Sydney and is willing to sponsor us as a family. With sponsorship and my husbands job we are 10 points short of what we need therefore would need to take the IELTS for the extra 10 points. After looking at the IELTS sample test my husband is very certain that he won't pass a couple of the sections. We really don't want to pay £300 to find this out. Does anyone have any advice or know anything else we can do?
