  2. Hi everyone! im hoping I can get some advice and guidance! Sorry for all the questions!! We are a family of 5! I am 28 (In a June!) and my partner of 7 years is 29. I have 2 sons from a previous relationship and we have one daughter together. We are very seriously looking to emigrate to Aus as it's something we have always wanted to do, it ticks every box as far as our lifestyle is concerned. I currently work as a Health Care Assistant in a local hospital. My partner has his own motor mechanic business. He is currently the only employee (was looking to employ someone but now we want to move he has held off) it's not a huge business but he's always busy and it pays the bills. What are the chances of us being accepted? My job is not on the skills list. How does this affect us? We currently have very little savings due to an emergency where we pretty much used up all of our savings. We are currently in the process of saving back up - how much roughly should we save to fund such a move? I won't have any problems as far as my sons are concerned, father is not on birth certificate and when told of our plans, was not bothered in the slightest! Another thing to throw in (sorry!) my mother wants to come. She is 54 in a July though, she currently has a very professional job as a teacher in a college. However due to age, we are thinking that would be a problem. What visas are available for our situation? I am planning on securing a job pretty much as soon as I get out there. Same as partner. We would prefer Aus, but we are not limited to there, we have also been looking into NZ as my mother has an Uncle there and she seems to think it will be easier for her (and us) to get in. any advice is greatly appreciated! thankyou in advance!
  3. Hi all, I came to Australia a year ago to marry my boyfriend. We got married in June 2016 and filed for the partner visa the month after. We've been together since 2012 and have known each other since 2006. I'm American but came from an overseas location as I was working in Asia when we got engaged (during a holiday together) I spent Uni studying foreign languages and teaching, and an opportunity has come up for me to teach overseas again. Which I would love to do since I don't have the right certifications to teach in Australia (or the money to get the certifications.) I've currently only been able to hold a 6 month job here in Australia as my longest and more temp work, all in customer service which is quite discouraging for an aspiring teacher. I'm currently on my bridging A visa and it states I have to be in Australia when the 820/801 visa is granted, I understand that part. Am I able to work overseas after it is granted? The agent/migration service I spoke to on the phone stated if I needed to leave I could go on a Bridging B visa and just come back after 3 months, apply for another bridging B and go back. As you all may guess, that would add up quickly. They said my Visa decision for the 820/801 can be anytime from now until December. I CAN postpone me leaving for the job but I need to know I can leave on the 820/801 visa (with the possibility of only visiting once a year) As this job position is in a University, I have a possibility of getting tenure and working permanently for this company. At this point, would it be better to go through the visa process or withdraw it and request a refund? (Would the refund even be granted?? 7000 is a lot to lose!) Every time we call we have to be on hold for a few hours and we never get all our questions answered, most answers are left at "I dunno, maybe it's okay" Thanks all
  4. Hi everyone My boyfriend's working holiday visa is due to expire soon. After a brief trip home he's hoping to return to Australia as a tourist and continue his travels. Have you had any experience of that - is it fairly straightforward? Or a risk of being turned away? Many thanks

It says online 90% should be done within 48 hours. I am just wondering if anyone else has been in the situation where they have been waiting for it to arrive and have entered austrailia on a different visa whilst waiting for their working holiday visa to be approved and if so how did they do it. I have found it very difficult to find a definitive answer online and would be extremely gratefull if someone could help! many thanks guys!

    186 Visa Work Conditions

    Hi I am applying for the 186 perm resident visa through the temporary residents transition system and I have read conflicting things about the rules regarding employment. I know that the employer has to state that there is a position of employment available for at least 2 years... and I have read in some places that I have to have the intension of staying in my current employment for the next 2 years also.... How strict are they on this does anyone know? As i'm pretty sure my "intensions" could change once I have residency if a better position becomes available.... would they cancel the visa if I started to work somewhere else?

  9. I am being talked into going to work in Australia for a year by a friend who has just returned from there. what he doesn't know is i have a sexual offence caution from 2008. its augured that you cannot have a caution for sexual offences but im the rare case! (arresting officer knew i didn't mean any harm and tried to let me walk. his boss wanted results which meant i had to take the lightest thing he could get me - a caution. This was from an incident from when i was 15-16, and is too embarrassing to tell my friend and ask him... would this caution stop me from applying for my Visa? as not yet ready to go and nothing is set in stone im not ready to apply for a working visa and just thought i'd ask here as i can stop worrying about it and maybe start planning. if anyone can help that would be great!
  10. Hi Friends, We currently live in Sydney. My husband has secured a job in Carrum Downs. We have a year old son. How is Carrum Downs as a place for bringing up children? Unfortunately or not, Carrum downs does not have a train station. We would prefer to live nearby train station,because we are yet to buy a car and I have to look out for jobs, so I might have to make frequent trips to the city. I read the nearest railway stations to Carrum Downs as Seaford, Kananook on Frankston line and Cranbourne,Merinda Park on Cranbourne line. We have no idea how these places are!We would want to rent in any of these areas, or preferably somewhere close to Carrum Downs. What we are looking for most primarily are: Community minded suburb close to train station and commutable distance to Carrum Downs,a nice Childcare,close to shops,safe suburb. Suggestions/help appreciated. Thanks, Shilpa :biggrin:
  11. My wife and I are moving to Melbourne in the next couple of months, I'm a Paediatric Nurse, she's a Radiographer. I was wanting to ask a few questions on behalf of my wife regarding working as a Radiographer in Oz. How does the job differ in comparison to working in the UK? Are roles and responsibilities different/same? How autonomous are Radiographers in Oz? Where is better to work, Hospital/Clinic? What are the hours? Are there a lot of opportunities for CT Radiographers? Finally the big one, what are the wages like? I appreciate any help anyone can give us on this and hope to find that there are a few Radiographers on this site. Cheers Steve
  12. Im about to sort out my WH Visa after planning it for over a year. All seems straightforward. Now I come across the health insurance problem. As I understand there is an emergency reciprical agreement between UK/OZ but I still have to pay for other costs. Apparently policies are based on what state you are in so I cant do QLD and NSW. So NSW it has to be. Ive got quotes of $200/month to $100/month but it is going to take an age to sift through these. Can anyone recomend a good policy?
  13. Hi there, Landed in Perth yesterday & whilst I'd love to sightsee all the places I want to visit right now, I'd rather get my regional work out of the way to hopefully secure a 2nd year visa! I know there are tonnes of threads offering advice but not all of it is relevant! If anyone could advise of regional work going (paid) anywhere in Australia as I am willing to travel it would be a great help. Also, any advice on what websites to visit to look for jobs would be good! Thanks Charlie

    2nd year WHV help!

    Hello! Thanks for reading this first of all, whoever you are. I'll try keep the situation short but apologies in advance if I rant. Now, I'm from UK and I got here 1st October 2012. Place is awesome of course. Now there was no question in my mind I wanted to stay for a second year so after my first 6 month stint in employment was done in April I was on the hunt for farmwork. Now I just found this site today and quite annoyed about all the links at the top for farm work - which is great if you're not an idiot like me and couldn't find any. I'm in Victoria and needed to stay near Melbourne for some unrelated issues and could not find any for life nor money within a few hours travel. A month and half goes by and I'm still unemployed and running very low on funds. Now a mate I was staying with mentioned the whole paying someone off thing and had a number, and said I should do it, to which I gave a rather half hearted nod. Was totally not against the farmwork, I was quite looking forward to it actually it was just getting soul destroying not having any money come in. Now, person I lived with lodged a visa application with this number he knew (all our documents were kept together) and applied. A few days later he's asking me for the money for the application. Some feigned protesting and thought **** it, what else can I do right now being unemployed with money dwindling - at least this way I could get back into a job in Melbourne and get some funds going. Now, whilst all this is going on I'm still looking for farmwork and as of 2 days ago I have a cushy orange picking job in SA that I'm rather psyched about. Asked him for the login details to withdraw the application cause yknow, why fake it when I'm doing the work anyway and on the thing they're asking for further documentation as to my farmwork - which I obviously don't have. I mean I can show a bank statement with no incomings but all the outgoings are in melbourne so it'd make no sense. Now I'm in this crappy position where I want to retract the application and resubmit when I have done the legitimate amount of time - but I'm afraid they're going to ask questions when I retract it, or even worse it'll affect my actual application later on - especially if I don't get another bridging visa (they gave me one even though mines doesn't end for a while?) as my farmwork is going to end middle to late september and my first year visa is up at the start of October - so I'll likely need a bridging one till they make a decision. So, to sum it all up my questions are - Can I retract online or do I have to fill in a form and send back? Will my retracted application affect the later one? Will I have to answer any questions when I retract it because I sure as hell don't want to have to explain to them I knew it was fraudulent but desperation got the better of me? Sorry again about the rant, I just wanted to make ti clear I don't want to rip off the system, I'm happy doing the work but gah, desperation does funny things Any advice would be absolutely ace. Thanks guys!

  16. Hi, I have a query regarding x-ray test for my pregnant wife. We had applied for visa class 189. We got a CO assigned. Before going for the x-ray test my wife tested positive on pregnancy. We are in Singapore but hold an Indian passport. Due to the test results we refrained from the x-ray test (also suggested by doctors). All other tests were done successfully. My wife already holds a class 457 Australian work permit valid for 4 years. She got all her medicals done for 457 few months back. Question is can the visa 457 x-ray test result be used for her 189 visa? She travels to Australia frequently on 457 visa based on her earlier medicals. Please help me in someone has already faced such a condition. Thank you!
  17. Hi, i wonder if anyone can advise me on the situation that has arisen. I will be arriving in Perth in December on my de-facto visa to start my new life in the sunshine, my current employer has offered me the chance to stay employed and work from Perth for them on offshore projects in Australian waters. The question is: when i receive my wage should i be paying tax on it in the UK or will i have to pay tax in Australia? Anyone in the same position or has knowledge of the tax system advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
  18. Hi, We are new to the site and we are both pleased we have stumbled across it. I (Martin) am currently supervising a busy service dept in a car dealership, but i am a motor vehicle technician by trade. We are looking to move to Perth but know very little about how to do this. Any info regarding the move and particularly the best way to find work in the Automotive industry in Perth would be most useful. Please help!! :wacko:
  19. Hi there - am looking for some words of wisdom and inspiration here please. We are moving to Oz in April 2011 - I will be working as a midwife at Dandenong Hospital and are trying to decide where to live? I will be working shifts so don't want to live more than 20-30 mins drive from the hospital. We have two children ages 5 and 11 so want to make sure we get a rental somewhere where, if we decide to stay, we can buy so that we don't have to uproot our kids again - my daughter is in Primary 7 and would go up to secondary school while we're in Australia so want to make sure she does that with friends she's already made in primary 7. We can't decide if the coast option is best or if the country is better. The seaside appeals, but it would appear the house prices and rentals are lesser the more inland you go, and maybe you get more for your money? We are an active family who enjoy running, orienteering, golfing, hiking, biking, most sports! and my daughter adores horses - so these facilities need to be close by, escecially horses!!! We have looked at Berwick and Cranbourne etc - but Mordialloc, Aspendale etc appeals too! Any advice much appreciated! So glad we've found Poms In Oz! :biggrin:
  20. Hi all, Currently applying for a Partner Visa. My partner was offered to relocate back to Sydney with a major bank. As my job was floundering we decided to grab the opportunity. I arrived in Australia in March 2011 on a 3 month tourist Visa then submitted my application (subclass 820) in Sydney around the 10th of that month. I received an email acknowledgement the money had been taken and they were starting the process. **Would arriving on a visitor visa and then applying for the partner visa straight away work negatively against me?** As yet I haven't had any further correspondence, only to confirm a change of address (Which I had to chase). As I understand the average waiting time is now around 9 months, something I hadn't originally anticipated. I have enquired about working on the Bridging Visa I am now on. I have emailed twice but not had anything back **Can anyone tell me the conditions on working on a Bridging Visa, as they appear to be a bit vague on the forms I have read. It just uses the language "Under exceptional circumstances". (I would have thought 9 months out of work for anyone would have been exceptional circumstances).** Currently one salary is supporting us, we are housesitting so no rent. There will be a time soon when we will have to find somewhere to rent. I have savings in the UK and Singapore so I guess any decision on allowing me to work is based on this? My savings are for a house deposit though. I'd be happy to pick up some work to tied me over. Any advice would be much appreciated. Regards,

  22. I was granted my first stage partner visa in March, at the time i thought my worries were over because this visa has no work restrictions, and in 2 years time so long as my situation hasn't changed, i should be able to get permanent residency. I was working for a small business as a labourer/ Trade assistant and everything was going great, but that job has sadly dried up now and I have encountered the same problem as before when looking for work, I have been told that i am perfect for the job, but they don't like my visa status because i am not permanent resident, so far it has cost me 2 jobs for definite, not to mention the countless jobs which don't even let you get past the automated questions the minute you put your immi status in. Have other people had this problem!? Is this just me? I don't have a trade or any particular skills, my background is in retail but i would like to start an apprenticeship and learn a trade, but I cant see a way to do that if nobody will give you a chance until your PM is granted! Its putting a lot of stress on me and my fiance, let alone stopping us from saving for the wedding, and getting our own place and all the other things which no doubt they will want evidence of to grant the visa!! lol, end of rant. If anyone has any similar experience how did you get around this? what industry/ jobs have people managed to get employed in on 820 temporary visa!? any ideas about what to do in terms of learning a trade!? thanks for listening!
  23. Hi, I am a British Dentist looking to emigrate to Australia, probably Melbourne, with my family. I was wondering if there were any dentists out there who could advise me on dentistry in Australia. I have already registered with the Australian Dental Council so that is one thing out of the way. I currently work in a part NHS/Part Private practice in England. Are there many fundamental differences between dentistry in the UK and dentistry in Australia? What is the average percentage that an associate would be paid? Would anybody recommend any particular agencies to go through/ to avoid when looking for a job? Basically any advice would be appreciated!! Cheers in advance
  24. Hi all,was just wanting to ask how long does the average working skilled visa 175 take??been told so many different time scales now and just want to be sure to plan ahead!!thanks.:wacko:
  25. Extending working holiday visas so backpackers can stay and work longer in agricultural jobs could make a difference to the chronic labour shortages facing Australia’s farming and rural sectors.Currently, backpackers under the age of 30 can visit Australia for 12 months under 417 visas where they are permitted to work six months of that time to help supplement their holidays. The time-frame can be extended to 24 months if the backpackers work in regional areas for three months, while using their first visa. Australia has reciprocal working holiday visa arrangements with the UK, Ireland, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Malta, Cyprus, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. Working holiday arrangements under the 462 visa classification also exist between Australia and Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Turkey, Chile and the US - encouraging cultural exchanges and closer ties. However, when those visas expire, rural employers often face the conundrum of having to let good workers go, having trained them and developed solid working rapports - even with a local labour shortage. They can apply for a 457 visa which allows businesses to employ non-Australians under sponsorship arrangements, to fill voids in certain skill sectors. Under those rules, workers can spend four years employed in an Australian business, bring family with them and travel to and from the country freely. The workers must be sponsored by an employer and have certain skills, qualifications, experience, and an employment background, matching the position’s requirements. They must also demonstrate a certain level of competence in speaking English; be eligible for any relevant licences or registrations required for the nominated position; and have health insurance. AgriLabour Australia business development manager Luke Brown said extending 417 and 462 working holiday visas, by as little as 12 months, would make an immediate difference to help relieve the massive workforce shortages in rural and farming areas.
