  1. Hi everyone Just wondering if anyone knew whether it is possible to apply for a 482 whilest waiting for a 186de offshore? We have been waiting 5 months and my husbands employer is getting impatient is there any way we can get out there quicker? we are so worried we will lose his sponsor because its taking so long
  2. Hi All, First post! I’m interest in going to Australia and the plan is to stay as long as possible! I’d come initially on a WHV next year doing the 3 months regional work and exploring. In the second year I’d hope to look into getting work in my current profession (Insurance Agent) which is on the STSOL list and hope/make it clear to the employer that my goal is to be sponsored so I can extend my stay beyond the 2 years. Just wondering if anyone has gone down this route and has any advice? Or if anyone is in this profession and has any advice on what the job market is like over there?

    Visa Option

    Hi all, just wanting thoughts on the best visa to apply for to get me to Australia ASAP! I am currently working as a Quantity Surveyor in the UK and have 3 1/2 years of experience. I'm a UK citizen. I'm hoping my line of work would grant me an exemption to travel under critical skills. I am wanting to make the move to Oz as my girlfriend is currently stuck there due to corona (she is Aussie). Unfortunately/fortunately depending on how you look at it, we cannot prove a de facto relationship. I have an unofficial verbal offer of employment from a company and are willing to sponsor but they are a bit slow at the moment. a WHV is pretty much off the cards as I held one of these in 2013 but did not complete 3 months regional work to obtain a 2nd one. I currently hold a ETA visa valid until Jan 2021. Any advice on the best visa to apply for would be much appreciated and also ay advice in the skills assessment by AIQS would also be appreciated. Thanks
  4. Hello I am planning to apply for Australian P.R. Been getting some mixed and confusing information on various things. I am ACCA Member and have cleared CFA Level 2 exam in 2017 attempt with almost 5 years of experience. My sibling is Aus Citizen. Following are my queries, Does 3 papers exemption due to CAT route to ACCA has any impact on ACCA qualification assessment? Will work experience count after ACCA Affiliate status or after ACCA Membership status? I have heard from someone that applying as Internal Auditor is preferred compared to general accountant. I have almost 3 years and 10 months mainframe internal audit experience, however, my current job is although audit based it is Titled as A.M Accounts and Finance. How can i claim internal audit experience for my current job, will writing my job details make my experience counts towards audit? i have also been working as Financial Controller for USA client. (20 hours per week). Can i use my Financial Controller role in Management Consultant category. If not, is there any way i can positively use it in application process? Been awarded Masters in Commerce (M.Com) - 16 years education equivalence by local degree awarding body at time of ACCA membership. Will this equivalence be of help in my application process. Temporarily resigned form my ACCA Membership from late 2019. However, it can be reinstated any time required. In process of application, do i need to reinstate my ACCA membership status? My sibling (blood relative) is Aus Citizen, how can it benefit me in application process? Regards

    482 sponsor selling business

    Hi guys, I have a question that I was hoping you could help with. I'm a 482 visa holder and currently in my 2nd year of sponsorship. My employer has decided that he wants to sell his business. I have been with this business for 5 years and in light of that, the employer wants me to move over to another of his businesses. The role and other entitlements are exactly the same, the only thing that would change would be the business itself and it's location of course. I am of course worried that this is going to reset my timer and result in me having to restart my 3 year period on the 482 visa. The second option I have is to stick with the new employer that is buying this current business and is willing to sponsor me as well. Thanks for patiently reading this. So my question is, which of these situations will I be able to carry forward the time I've spent on my visa rather than having to start over. Thank you.
  6. Hi Guys, I'm a civil engineering student in VIC here and I saw that there are a lot of related occupations that I can apply for a PR in NSW state sponsor site. So, I am wondering that what are that chances that we can apply accross the states like that? P.s: I got 60 Points which is perfectly enough for applying this visa. Thanks in advance
  7. Hi all! We are about to pay for the 309 visa, but does any one know if the sponsor can use their own credit card to pay for the 309 visa? I am the sponsor, and we would prefer to use my credit card to pay rather than one of my partners, or out of our bank account. Thanks in advance.
  8. Information has been made available this afternoon as to the required taxable income of the sponsor of a temporary sponsored parent visa application. The amount is A$83,454.80. The taxable income will need to be confirmed by presenting the tax assessment notice for the financial year immediately preceding the year in which the application for approval as a sponsor is submitted – ie for the tax year ended 30 June 2018 if the application for approval as a sponsor is lodged before the end of June 2019. Best regards.
  9. I am sponsoring my husband for the 309/100 visa to Australia. We are both living in his country of Iran. Its been 12 months since application date and still no word. I would like to know if it would affect the process if I returned home to Australia temporarily to care for my daughter who needs surgery. Our lawyer told my husband that it would be bad if I went home. Can anyone assist me in this matter please. Thank you. Nicole.
  10. Here goes my story I would love to share with everyone, especially to those who felt like they have lost all hope. First of all, my visa journey was a very very complicated one. I believe some of you guys are on the same boat here. I am from Malaysia, was a civil engineering graduate from UWA in 2014. I was playing and partying around in the whole 2015, working as a salesperson for vodafone(good money and commission), while being too comfortable, I was wasting time instead to look for a job and practise my IELTS to 7 or even 8. Being young and wild and ignorant knowing that my time is up before I know is too late. Mid 2016, I found a job with a dodgy small property development company (didn't know at the time of work), so my graduate visa running out within 1-2 months time, I had to do something so my employer agreed to sponsor me as an engineering technician since it requires only $55k on paycheck as evidence, but I paid all the visa fees ~ $13000 incl agent fees. The company was doing well until I found out my boss were dodgy in the sense that he performs all activities with cash only, no bank ties at all. When the time came, we were asked to provide company financial statements and balance books to the immigration for criteria check for visa grant, he refused to provide as he is worried that they would find out his tax evasion schemes. At that moment, I was thinking to myself What am I still doing here. As predicted, it failed through but fortunately the visa 187 was refused with option to pay $3,500 for AAT tribunal review. I quit the job shortly after and relying on the time bought with AAT review that lasts 14 months before I get called to court for last chance to provide evidence, otherwise within 28 days I have to leave the country. ***Money paid: $9000 (visa 187) + $4,000 (agent fee) + $3500 (AAT review) = $16,500 ***At the time of quitting job, time left: 8 months left to stay Again, after I left the job, I had totally wasting time and lost the opportunity to apply for individual skilled visa as an engineer, my IELTS can't even score all 7's. Even if I did, my EOI will take at least 2 years for invite since I have only gotten 60 pts. Above all, I found my soul mate, a girl who is so good to me, loves and care about me even though knowing I don't have much time left in Australia. Another note, she's a PR with family migration few yrs ago. So I approached an agent to help with me to apply for a spouse visa that allows me to stay and work and live. Most importantly, she agreed to this, it can be a big decision for some partners as it involves their personal life. So now, the complication comes, agent doesn't allow me to apply for visa 820 onshore because my partner is not pregnant or under any circumstances that I have to be onshore to look after her, even if we apply for it, it will be refused anyway and money will be wasted. So, I found out the other way is offshore visa 309/100 where I am required to be out of Australia while application is being processed. Gladly, my AAT review application provided me with a bridging visa where I could continue to stay and work until I got called to court and being decided or visa 309 being granted. Gladly, few days after I quit the job, I have gotten a job offer with a big private engineering company calling me to start the following week, well I had to lie about my visa status so that I could get a job there during interview. They were not too fuss about it after I told them midway, as long as I have gotten full work rights. 3 months after, we got married! Not a lavish one, we only signed the marriage papers in one of the perth marriage office where both families came together to celebrate. This fulfills my requirement to apply the visa as married couple, while she's the sponsoring one. And so, we applied the visa 309 and lodged. *** Money paid: $16,500(part 1) + $7000(visa 309) + $1500(agent fee) = $25,000 *** At the time of applying, time left to stay in Oz : 5 months and 1 week. I have went online everywhere forums and immi website to search for processing time for visa 309, and far out, it was at least 16 months, I was prepared mentally to leave the country away from my loving wife for that long and wouldn't know what would happen due to that separation, and also to leave the good paying engineering job I love. That mentality and thought just got me pulling my skin off thinking about it, all will roll back to square one losing everything. 1 month after lodgement, immi asked me to perform the health check where it's usually come after half a year after lodgment. At the final week of the 5th month, I went back to Malaysia for a wedding and thank god that immi officer called my agent asking me to perform a biometric collection outside of Australia, luckily I was in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur that time and able to find a centre that does that. Few days after, they had granted me the spouse visa 309 before I am due to come back to Oz with my wife!!!! Too, I have withdrawn my AAT review applications and no longer needed that. As you can see, I have quite a few ups and downs in this journey, but I kept my faith strong if I want to stay in Oz forever. If money can solve a problem, it's not a problem, remember this! Don't save and cut corners, nobody can help you except yourself. Things I did that sped up the approval process: 1. We got married and used that status to lodge, instead of DE-FACTO. 2. Whatsapp chat messages, emails, air tickets and phone call records to show them that we are in contact every few days, proving our relationship is real. It's cringy but well, if that helps with the approval then why not? 3. Wrote out clear love stories of both of us, 6 pages long, including future plans. 4. Submit police clearance docs early, overseas usually take longer. 5. Financial aspects, we opened up joint bank accounts straight after we were dating, share meals, groceries and stuff. Talk to your spouse about this, tell her it's your future. 6. Translation and certification of all documents before lodgment. 7. Gather all couple selfie photos and date them in zip folders. 8. Submit a DECISION-READY application !!!! Feel free to ask me any questions and I will advice you best as I can.

    Which Visa to apply for and how?

    Hi All, I am currently a resident of the UK and have been going out with my girlfriend, who is from New Zealand for 6 months now. Her sponsorship in the UK will run out in October of next year and we're looking for a move to Brisbane, Australia. We've looked into partner Visas but we're not sure if she's eligible as a sponsor as she hasn't been living in Australia amongst other things. Can you help at all? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you Sam
  13. I am a Brit living in Oz and have been working on my 457 Visa for the past two years, with another two years remaining on my Visa. I am very unhappy in my current job and I really want to leave, and it has got to the point where I am willing to consider leaving without another role to go to. I am in the process of applying for a Defacto Visa with my girlfriend (we have been together for a year) but I am well aware that the time it takes to get this issued far exceeds both my current situation and my remaining 457 Visa time. If I choose to quit my job without another work sponsor to vouch for me, will I be able to stay and work in Australia after I have lodged my application for Defacto? Or can I only stay and work after being issued the initial part of my Defacto Visa? Also, would I only be able to legally work if a new employer sponsored me (if I can find one)? Would I be able to fly to and from the country whilst my application was pending (I had intended to go back to the UK for Christmas and already booked flights)? Any feedback would be gratefully received. Thanks.

  15. I'm curious as to what the responsibilities of an immigration sponsorship from an uncle would be, and what the sponsoree has to do as well? His family and himself are Australian citizens, and I'm his niece looking to immigrate to Australia. I can't seem to find too much information surrounding what a sponsorship entails for this type of relationship. Help!

    Help With Employer Nomination

    Hi Everyone, I am hoping someone out there is able to help me. I own a very small bricklaying company in WA and am looking to sponsor a British national so that he is able to stay working with me. I am trying to gauge whether or not I need a migration agent or whether I can work through the nomination process myself. I am unsure on how I would provide evidence for the following requirements (in terms of the format etc. as I know the immigration department can be very particular): evidence that the position is currently occupied by a temporary resident evidence of an increase in business activity (e.g. new contracts won) requiring workers in the nominated occupation If anyone can offer any advice around these requirements or just employer nominations in general I would be incredibly grateful! Many thanks in advance!
  17. Hi all, my English husband has just submitted his 309/100 visa application online (hooray - we have finally done it!). As his Australian wife, I now need to submit the 40SP form as his sponsor. From those who have been through the process, should I / can I do this directly through his immi.gov.au account, or should I set up a new account specifically for me and then attach the document to his profile? The website appears to let me start processing through his account but I don't want to get anything wrong that could delay us. Sorry for being a novice ! Thanks in advance.

    Need a sponsor for pest control

    Hi everyone and thanks to those who replied to me. My works company here in the uk have a presence all over the world my company here in the uk said if you want to be relocated we can do that for you so I asked them and they have replied with sorry we don't sponsor people but if you find a way over here we will employ you , after building my hopes up the way they did saying yes we can and will get you in but really I think they just thought I wasn't serious and that I would just go away. We thought that would be it but a friend of ours said they where looking and he also is a pest control technician but he is going down the route of finding a sponsor in oz first then applying for a visa and I was just wandering how realistic this way is as regards will he find a sponsor how long can it take and if he finds a sponsor what visa will he apply for. I am in his position as well so can I do this , does the sponsoring company pay for me to move over there as regards flights finding somewhere for me and my family to live do they offer any help at all, I am so disappointed at this time with my company and it has disheartened me and my family sorry it's so long winded but thanks in advance Ozplease

    Partner Visa Sponsor Duties

    Hi everyone, I am Australian living in the UK with my British de facto partner. He will be applying for his Partner (Provisional) Visa (subclass 309) soon and we'd like to clear up a few issues with my duties as a sponsor. I am unemployed at the moment and I have read that it wouldn't affect me sponsoring my partner. Is this correct? I have enough savings to be able to fulfill the financial aspect of the sponsorship undertaking. We are planning to buy a house when we go to Australia so will be staying with my parents when we arrive until then. Will explaining this in our personal statements be sufficient? Any information would be appreciated.

    visitor family stream 600

    Hi, I am planning to sponsor my parent and a brother for a visitor visa under family stream 600. But, the condition on the visa as an sponsor is that: "You cannot be a sponsor for more than one person at the same time, unless they are the member of the same family unit. A family unit is made up of the head of the family, their partner and their dependent children. Other relatives can be included in the family unit if they are dependent on the head of the family.but he is not married and living with the parents." Can a I sponsor along with my parent, my brother who is 28 years old, doing a job but he is not married and living with parents in the same house. Or is there any way to bring my parent and a brother here on a visit. Thanks

    Visa vs Job Hunting

    Hi, Myself and my partner have started heavy research into moving to Oz, ideally Perth. We have been in contact with an agent to get advice on our visa prospects/best route etc. What we are having trouble with is the decision to lodge a visa application first and wait the approx 2yrs for the outcome or to just bite the bullet and come over on a holiday/working visa to do the leg work and job hunt to go down the sponsor route. Really just looking for advice on the best way to get out feet in the door! Help!!! Thank you.
  23. Hello, My fiance and I are looking to apply for the prospective marriage visa. I am Australian and an Australian citizen living in the UK with my fiance. I am not working here in the UK as I'm wanting to go back to Aus to work, but I wanted to know if my parents are able to sponsor my fiance on the application. We will living with them when we go back. They are able to provide evidence of accommodation and financial support, but would that be allowed? On the visa website, it only mentions the partner as being eligible to be the sponsor and doesn't mention any alternatives. Thanks.
  24. Hello, Seeking some advice or experiences. I am an electrician, currently in Australia on a 417 WHV, I am just about to begin my second year. I have recently started a company in regional NSW, offering small electrical installations, repairs and mainly Tag & Test (PAT). I have heard that it is possible to "Sponsor yourself" through this route but I have also heard that there are complexities to the requirements of the company such as structure, turnover and the length of time the company has been operating. Perhaps if I appointed a friend or family member as a director of the business, would that be of more benefit in terms of a visa being granted to me as an individual? Can anybody shed any light on the situation for me? Cheers, Marty

    Employer sponsorship help

    Hey I need some help my employer has been teaching me a new trade for the last 4 months (cladding and rendering) now he says he wants to sponsor me to stay in the country but neither of us know which visa I could use if any as I'll be classed as unskilled. Any help would be appreciated. Ps I'm 25
