I went through the Western Australian web site and I couldn’t understand about what is state nomination application form. Is that Skill Sponsored Visa (SSV) is a state nomination application? Please if you could advise me. Many thanks Thas

    Western suburbs thread (Melbourne)

    Hi All If you live in the Western suburbs of Victoria, please join the thread... Please tell us who you are, where you are, and what it’s like, any tips? Remember what it was like trying to do research on an area, this thread could be a goldmine for new comers. If your thinking about the Western suburbs please join the thread, this should be the place to ask questions about the place. If you have a trade or service let us know. Lets start up a meet up for the area, I know at 1 point there was a drinks night, if it’s still going are new members welcome? We have some nice beaches and parks lets get some family days going.... PIO is a community web site lets turn the Western Suburbs into a community where new migrants feel welcome, who knows we just might make some life long friends along the way.
  3. Hi everybody :cute: , We are new here, just joined today and really need some opinions. We are applying for 163 visa for either Western Australia or Queensland and we would like to hear opinions from people who live and work there about standard of life, weather, living costs, accommodation, etc.. I know it is getting more and more expensive but which state would have the most opportunities? I have a small drylining business and I am hoping to do the same there that's why I am applying for this visa. We have never been there and we know that we're taking a gamble by putting all our eggs in one basket but we're really sick of weather and recession over here (even though we're supposed to be out of it now). Any advice would be much appreciated.
  4. Hello. I have just registered as I am a bit concerned about schools in Joondalup where we are planning to migrate to. My partner has his residential visa already and myself and my teenage children are waiting to hear if we can all go over to live, I am also expecting a baby. A friend of ours has recently gone already to Joondalup and he said he is considering putting his daughter into private school as the state school is rubbish. He has never done anything like this before (as daughter normally lives with Mum in UK or New Z) and although I have emailed him to ask about his school concerns, I wanted some other people's opinions. My children ate 15 and 13 and both are gifted in different areas. They are currently at a very good school so I am of course worried about moving them as I dont want their grades to drop as they are both getting A's and A stars. Any info would be really helpful. Thanks in Advance xxx
  5. We have a company in WA who are prepared to sponsor experienced and qualified Bricklayers for ongoing work. If you have experience in domestic and commercial, new brick, rennovations, exterior walls etc... please contact us for more information. You will be initially sponsored on a 457 visa which will later be converted to a permanent visa. If you have any questions please contact me. Cheers Tony NB: The Bricklaying company do require that each candidate use the companies migration agent and also use the relocation service. This requirement was put in place for the benefit of the company so that each successful candidate receives a fully managed relocation and settlement service. This was set up by the company because of previous experiences.

    Welding in Western Oz

    Hi We're new to the forum and hoping for some advice please if possible - if we would be better posting this in another area too, then all suggestions are welcome! Since visiting the Perth area two years ago, we are growing more and more eager to return permanently. My partner’s brother lives to the south of Perth, and would love more family out there too. My OH has worked as a welder for over 10 years but has no formal qualifications/training, and from what we can gather our best bet would be for him to act as the main applicant and to apply for a 176 State Sponsored visa (after completing a VETASSES practical in London to validate his skills/experience). Is this correct???? We have also been wondering whether it would be possible for him to start sending a CV directly to companies out there in the hope that he could be sponsored by an employer. Does anyone know if this is feasible, and whether he would still need to go down the VETASSES route anyway before an employer would even consider him?? We really do need as much info and advice as possible, so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks Ange and Rick
  7. http://www.joondalup.wa.gov.au/welcome/citynews/11-11-04/CITY_OF_JOONDALUP_RECOGNISED_AS_WORLD_S_MOST_LIVEABLE_CITY.aspx CITY OF JOONDALUP RECOGNISED AS WORLD’S MOST LIVEABLE CITY 4/11/2011 3:58:30 PM The City of Joondalup was named the World’s Most Liveable City of 2011 at the UN-backed annual International Awards for Liveable Communities (LivCom) on October 31. The LivCom Awards are the world’s only Awards Competition focusing on International Best Practice regarding the management of the local environment with the further objective of improving the quality of life of individual citizens through the creation of ‘liveable communities’. Alan Smith, chief executive and founder of LivCom said that they had long championed the fact that many of the world’s most pressing challenges can be met by working at regional level and the cities represented demonstrated that they are actively taking a lead in this. One of five elite cities across the world recognised as fulfilling the awards’ range of key criteria covering environmental best practice, healthy lifestyle of citizens, community involvement as well as arts and cultural heritage, the City of Joondalup won the population 150,001 to 400,000 category ahead of Nansha, Guangzhou, China and Kuantan, Malaysia. Announced after three intensive days evaluating 77 finalist cities from 26 countries, the 2011 awards were the largest in LivCom’s 15 year history, providing an opportunity for cities to share both best practice and springboard ideas off each other. Joondalup Mayor Troy Pickard said that the award was the jewel in the crown for Joondalup, with the City now recognised at an international level for its fantastic attributes and lifestyle choices. “The City has come a long way in a few short years, providing the community with a great range of services and a sense of place, whilst developing sustainable planning and environmental strategies for the future. “Local governments face many challenges and must plan for them all. From climate change to population growth, community services and emergency management in the face of disaster, the City of Joondalup is leading the way in local government in Western Australia, and, as this award now shows, internationally.”A full list of results in the finals, photography and full citations of the criteria awards can be found at www.livcomawards.com.

  10. Having spent the last 2 years on a working holiday visa in Australia it is now time to return home & join the rat race! However, my boyfriend has actually been offered sponsorship in WA & I think we'd be crazy not to go for it. The problem is though that I had planned to return to the UK to undertake a PGCE (post-grad certificate in Education). Being almost 30 I don't want to put it off much longer, so was wondering if anyone knew my options for doing a similar course in Australia. I already have a degree so am hoping that a teaching course, much like the UK, will only be another year of study. If anyone has a suggestion of where I at least start to look Id be very grateful. Thanks Amy

  12. We'll i've been looking here nearly every day for the lbest part of a year since we began starting our research and due to the delay with my qualification assesment, getting married (delay) and then passports needing reissuing (delay) i finally complete the online visa process only to find that i'm 5 points shy of the 475 requirements. So.... I think i have 3 options:- Do the IELTIS exam Include OH qualifications in the application Go down the 176 sponsorship route. I've been on the immi website and searched here and now have a question or two. To get my OH points included as part of the points test will the qualifications etc need to be officially assessed by TRA?. Where on earth is the 176 form to apply for western australia state sponsorship? any help much appreciated :embarrassed:

    Some help with western suburbs??!!

    Hi all, We are due to move out to Australia in 3 weeks. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (3 and 4), we are being placed in Williamstown for 4 weeks with my husbands firm. After the 4 weeks we will need to move into a longer term rental so we are trying to research as much as possible before we actually leave. The places we are looking at are - Caroline Springs Taylors Hill Hillside Wyndham Vale My husbands job is based in Sunshine and we may only be able to afford one car to begin with so dont want to be too far from Sunshine and within walking distance (or public transport to local shops etc. We also need to be near some sort of kindergarten for my children. We may only be looking to rent for 6months to 1 year to begin with so keeping the rent to a minimum is a must and these are the areas I am coming up with. Any advice or opinions would be gratefully received! Thanks, Alex
  14. Tourism Australia is running an online campaign at the moment, promoting locations around Australia in short online videos, featuring, backpackers, tour guides etc to lure more young people Down Under to work and play. The Tourism Australia campaign, 30 days in Oz, consists of 30 online videos, each following someone different in locations around Australia, with each demonstrating in 60 seconds why "there's nothing like Australia for young travellers." Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy said the campaign would promote the Working Holiday Visa and encourage young people to consider Australia as a place to work or travel, particularly those leaving school or on a Gap Year. "One of Tourism Australia's objectives is to get more young people to holiday in Australia. These travellers often become lifelong advocates, influencing friends and family of all ages to holiday in Australia and returning themselves later in life," he said. "We also know from research that many of these visitors are backpackers, who spend more time travelling and explore more of Australia than other travellers, which is one of the reasons the youth market is such an important one for us." The video's showcasing Western Australia are below: cdNhEvyT5qU LML5LVe9ogc lhRn9tZ1M3M
  15. Hi all, I've just discoved that I'm on a course in Rozelle, Sydney from 24 Oct - 23 Dec 11 and that accomodation is not provided. As I currently live in Adelaide a daily commute is out of the question. Also as I've been unemployed since arriving in Australia money is extremely tight. I'm leaving the family in Adelaide and am looking for the cheapest flatshare / houseshare / hostel available. I'd rather not "hot-bed" (but will if I have to) but all I'm looking for is cheap and close to Rozelle. I've looked on Gumtree but most of the flatshare / houseshare adverts seem dodgy to say the least - not a single word spelt correctly, almost impossible to understand the advert, no clue as to what you actually get for your money etc. Is there anywhere else you would recommend me looking (backpacker magazines, local rags, trade magazines etc. - obviously even better if they're online). Alternately if anyone is looking for a short term lodger / flatmate / housemate in the Inner Western Sydney area who is very clean and tidy (ex-Infantry Officer, shared many types of accomodation with no problems) and will spend all his time on his course, studying or at rugby / boxing traing then please PM me. Thanks in advance, Gareth Probert

  17. Hi everyone, I am British, and have lived here for 5 years now. My wife is an AusPom and we are happily settled here. We live in Springfield Lakes and I teach in Toowong, so the chances are I can help you answer your questions, if you need a friendly local opinion. Scotty
  18. This not meant to be a thread concerning muslims etc. This is meant as a thread aimed at those ordinary members of the UK and Australia I guess that have over recent months/years found that their political ideals, wants, needs and the like have been dulled or sharpened by what is going on at the moment in the UK. Radicalism is often talked about concerning muslims and how some may view the world after 9/11 and the ongoing struggle in Iraq. But I think the term radicalism could also be used concerning many ordinary members of this countries population. If the 'recession' has affected you to a degree or the cuts in certain sectors have impacted would you now consider writing to your MP, going on a march/rally etc. Of course I'm not talking of violent demonstration, some choose this path, but more often than not it is a futile avenue to take, for many reasons. But in the long run have you 'consciously' decided to rally against what is going on and realised that maybe at some point your voice be heard. I have no idea if this has made any sense, and I am not trying to start an argument about any government, more what you feel on a very personal level, and has your attitude changed, stayed the same, or do you just duck for cover. Cheers Tony.:wink:
