Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi I'm a first time poster here... read a good few threads and seems there are some very well informed people about so I hope you can share some of that knowledge and pass it my way! Basically my partner and I are looking at migrating to Australia using a 176 subclass visa, she has relatives who live there and would be happy to sponser her and I could go as her De Facto, we have been together 12 months and have lived together for 6. We are both qualified Food Technologists with BSc(Hons), from what I can work out food technologists are on the SOL as 'Chemist'. We are yet to do our VETASSESS but will do so if and when required. My question is.... I believe I am right in thinking that even though our occuption is on the SOL and she has a family sponsor our applications would not be processed until 2012?? and thats on the premise we get them in by the end of 2009, which seems unlikely as its now the 5th of Dec. We would ideally not like to wait that long (durrrrr) so are thinking we might go out on a tourist visa allowing us to work for a period of 6months within 12months. While there we would aim to try and secure employer sponsorship for a permenant visa (any idea what visa this would be? possibly a bridge visa or do they then grant onshore 176??? also if this happened would the application then have priority or is it only employer sponsored applications on the CSL that go through as priority?) Are there any people out there who work in the Food industry or are perhapes Food technologists or in that field who know of anyone who has secured sponsorship using a tourist visa originally? or perhapes know the situation of employment in the food industry or good regions to look for employment in the food industry? If we gain sponsorship by an employer do people know of any obligations tied into the sponsorship such as having to work for the company for a set period after etc etc? I'm guessing this is variable depending on the company but some people must have been in this situation so all experiences welcome. Sorry for the high number of questions but if anyone could take time to help me out i'd be hugely grateful. Me trying to work out the best thing to do>>>>>:wacko: Cheers!
I have a question about VETASSESS assessment of skills for Food Technologist. Is there anywhere I can find what subjects I should have done to be named as "Food Technologist" (under Chemist - 234211). I was looking at their official site and there is nothing said about Food Tech. Also I'm wondering what is the cost of assessment if you are overseas - on the website there are only information for domestic costs (as far as I know). Does anybody have any experiances with this? Thanks
