    Understanding migration!

    Hello I'm new here. Just said hi on the welcome forum. Blimey: I'm confused. My OH has a chance of taking a job in Brisbane; he is on SOl (Biochemist). But I am not on SOl as I am a Uni Lecturer (PhD - osme good. LOL!). Not sure if this means I could never work if we were to go (me, OH and 7 yr old son). Working my way through reams of reading... Thanks for reading; enjoying reading all of the threads. Sx
  2. So, my wife and I are hoping to move down under, and once we're settled she would like the option of her parents moving as well (she has a brother in the UK, so satisfies the 'half your children' rule). Now as I understand it there are 2 options: Contributory, which would cost about $75,000 and has a ~2 year wait? Non-contributory which costs around $5,000 but can take 10 years? If neither of these are 'acceptable', where do we stand if they want to come and live in Oz for 6 months at a time? Note they wouldn't be working, and I assume would have travel insurance etc, but would they be able to keep getting visas? Or is there a limit? Note: when I say 6 months at a time, I mean spending 6 months in the UK, 6 months in Oz, 6 months in the UK etc. Just wondering what the options are really.

    Help in understanding 457 visa

    Am I right in believing that there is no age limit on a subclass 457 visa, which allows a person a 4 year tempory work visa to work in Oz. If I could find myself an employment position, thru the help from relatives in Oz and go on to take that offer on this visa, am I right in believing there would be a chance to then transfer that to permanant visa, if my employer sponsered me when the 4 years are up. Would I be able to do this even though I am 54.

    Help understanding 475

    Anybody understands how subclass 475 works? I have a potential employer and I am hoping it's better than 176?
  5. Im so sorry but In new to all this and am just in the process of gathering all my DHs information for the TRA. However with all this news of changes in the Skilled visa I really cant understand the implications. My story... DH fully qualified carpenter / joiner. Working as this full time since he was 17. I have a brother in Brisbane who will sponsor us. What does new changes mean for me as I havent even applied yet. Sorry if this sounds dumb.. Im just in a panic that we may never get there.
  6. Hello everyone, I'm desperately searching for understanding/clarification!!! Please help! On the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) form 1121i there is no listing of a Restaurant and Catering Manager. However, I have found the following links that indicate that a Restaurant and Catering Manager IS included in the Skilled Migrants list for the 457 sponsored visa. http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/skilled-workers/sbs/457occupations.pdf http://www.immi.gov.au/media/publications/pdf/appendices_m_o.pdf http://www.nationalvisas.com.au/employer/eligible457visaoccupations.htm The following link however states "This occupation is not on the Skilled Occupations List" Restaurant and Catering Manager - ASCO 3321-11 I think I need clarification on what a "gazetted subclass 457 occupations" list is. What is a gazetted list vs. the list found on immigration form 1121i?? Can I, as a restaurant and catering manager (in Ireland) be sponsored under the subclass 457 visa (assuming I have a job offer) under that catergory? ASCO code 3321-11 Restaurant and Catering Manager Or is this category for a different type of sponsorship altogether? I would greatly appreciate any assistance/guidance Thanks so much, Janey

    Understanding mobile phones

    Maybe it's my age... Can someone explain to me in British speak what the various different mobile tariffs are e.g. Cap, Post Pay etc. I'm presuming Cap is PAYG and Post Pay is a "normal" contract? What sort of thing would equate to my 300 minutes and 200 text messages per month in the UK? Can I go SIM only and bring my old but reliable quad band phone with me? Which providers have best coverage (Perth) and are calls to other networks still charged for in Oz or part of free minutes? Really trying to work out what the best thing to do is when we arrive at the start of March.
  8. Hi everyone, I am new to this website, so thanks for having me. I have recently made the move to Australia and have permanent residency. We have chosen to try out Sydney and have been here two months. I am currently looking for work and am trying to understand what might generally be offered in terms of salary packages and how they are different to those at home, for example with regard to holidays and pensions etc. I have been lucky to have an interview at a college (to work in Student Services) and have been invited back for the second stage this week. So far, I have managed to avoid salary specifics by being a little vague about differences in currency, that sort of thing. Plus, the job I am being interviewed for is different to what I did back home, as I was previously teaching. I don't really know what to ask for as I was on quite a low wage, but had all of the holidays a teacher gets, but also lived in the north of England, which clearly doesn't really compare to living in Sydney where things are bound to be expensive and must be comparable to say, living in London. Any advice on understanding salary packages or how to get a good deal would be greatly appreciated, especially during these economically difficult times! Thanks again, Kelly
  9. hi im looking at Graphic Pre Press tradesperson but i dont understand what the TRA under the assessing Authority means and what does SOL means and ENSOL thank you
  10. Hi Guys, We've been doing some reading into the eductaion system, but finding it hard to make head or tail of it! We have 3 kids, a girl in year 5, a girl in year 7 and a boy in year 9. We want to go in two years time, so the boy would have finished his GCSE's and ready to go on to whatever is the aussie equivilant of A Levels, the middle girl would be about to start her GCSE years/ or Aussie equvilant, and the youngest woud be in year 7... Could someone explain roughly how the Aussie eductaion system works? I know there is an equivilant of A Levels, but is there an equivilant to GCSE's?? Anyone had experience of moving kids of this age? They really want to go (at the moment!) but thier schooling is really important. Thanks, Meg xx
  11. I'm sure this can only be answered by those who have/are currently dealing with "the man at DIMA" but can anybody offer advice as to procedures to follow when unable to complete medicals for children from previous relationship ?? Read lots of suggestions "Statutory Declarations" etc etc but can anybody share what is 100% acceptable having been in similar situation ? or is this dependent on Appointed Case Officer ?? More than willing to sign any declaration/have solicitor write to ex wife etc etc but could do with re-assurance that I'm not wasting my time with my application as I anticipate never being able to have kids medicals completed thanks to my Ex !! Obviously the children do not intend to migrate with me which adds to the frustration.
