    wot a promising email

    Wow this is what a migration agent sent us ...... sounds promising ! "Australian Immigration Law Update " If you are interested in moving to Australia then NOW is the time to make your immigration application. This is because Australia has changed laws to make immigration easier for skilled workers, students and family members. Work in Australia Most importantly, the number of visas on offer to skilled workers will soon increase to 185,000 places per year. This is the first time Australia has increased migration levels since 2008. Australia will also introduce the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) to make it faster and easier for workers to move to Australia. The scheme will create 16,000 places for workers to target specific skills shortages in regional areas. Global Visas can help you determine if your skills and experience make you eligible for the scheme. Family Visas Visas for people with family members in Australia will also increase to 58,000 places per year. In announcing the changes, Australian Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said it was "socially important" that migrant families can stay together. Student Visas In April, the Australian Government changes the rules to make it simpler for students to move to Australia. Successfully applying for an Australian student visa has never been easier thanks to simpler eligibility criteria relating to English language, evidence of funds and previous education. More changes ahead With a booming economy and low unemployment, Australia has plenty of opportunities for workers and families to immigrate. Migrants make important contributions to the Australian economy, and the government is doing everything they can to make immigration easier. More changes are ahead - including simpler and faster work permits - so contact Global Visas to find out your best opportunity to immigrate. Take advantage of this opportunity to move to Australia by starting your application TODAY with Global Visas.

  5. Finally got visa's but cruelly had been hoping to go to Queensland have family there and friends of family so had done all our research for there but due to my job as fitter coming off the csl found we had no choice but to swap our 175 for a 176 state sponsored visa.However we were determined to get to Australia so when we finally made up our minds to sack our crappy agent and go it alone,which we did and have now found ourselves looking at Perth which looks great but can anyone help us to find the right suburb? We have 3 boys aged 8,10 & 14 as i said i'm a fitter and my wife is a teaching assistant.Any help greatly received. Many thanx Rob & Penny Smith

    wot should i do?

    hi everyone, i'm after some good ol advice from anyone who'll give it. i'm single, live on my own and am pretty much fed up with my life and fed up with it going nowhere. for a while now i've been thinking of upping sticks to oz but i've never been there, and cant afford to just go there on a holiday and see if i like it there. all the money i would have would be to get myself out there to stay and thats it. i have a proberty here thats made a little money in equity so i could use that to get myself set when i got there but i havent the foggiest where to look. i've been on a site to see if i could get a visa and as i'm a hairdresser it said i qualify, which is one good thing. are there web companys that help with all this or are they expensive? i know theres alot to answer but i dont no where to start so any info would be much appriciated.

    Wot Would U Do?

  15. Hi guys I hav'nt had a proper good old PIO session for a few weeks (although I managed to sneak the odd post on here and there, as you do !!! ) but found I have 12 plus pages to read and catch up on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There's not enough hours in the day so thought it would be easier to ask wot all the PIO gang has been up too and what have I missed ??????????????????? :chatterbox: Been really busy lately, we've been away for the last two weekends (a lovely family wedding which was realy emotional :cry: and we stayed with friends aswell) We are still trying to get the house finished after starting an extension some 2yrs ago (great idea Mr Jonseywife... not !!!) , and have been up to our eyes in bliming decorating, painting, gardening, scraping boggies off the wall in the boys bedroom etc., etc., etc., !!!!!!!!! It should be ready to put on the market soon, so fingers crossed !!!! :wacko: So, WELCOME and good luck to any newies......... Well done & congratulations to any TRA passes, visa grants, house sales etc., etc., Hope to hear from you sooon.................................... Sally-ann x p.s. Eddie, Dan & Mr KP are still as rotten & smelly as ever it take it !!!!!!!!!!!!! :biglaugh:
  16. Hi Guys!:shocked: What happens when your trade is removed from the MODL??? Our independent 136 Visa App was acknowledged back in June when they said a CO should be appointed in 6 weeks (any day now??) but in spite of that delay our application would be verified, etc., & would proceed as if CO had been appointed then! Whatever that means!! However, OH's trade has JUST been REMOVED from Most in Demand List! How can they not give at least a head's up, or month's notice - imagine you've submitted your TRA yesterday, you're gonna waste $$ getting assessed for a job no longer in demand, which could mean one not having enuf points for Visa App! :huh: That's not fair?! Any advice? Herbster - Felling a bit grumpy! :unsure:

    Wot a shame ......

    Just gotta say..... its such a shame that there has been some uncomfortable undercurrents on here lately! After finding this site a few months back, I was hooked straight away and impressed with genuine helpfullness of people on this forum, and spent far too much time on here (just ask my husband and kids). But im so suprised how quickly it can all change..... we all have a different sense of humour, and people can take the wrong way, so easily. Obviously many posts have got out hand lately and it aint nice. People on here need to lighten up a little ... well quite a bit really !!!!! Take things with a pinch of salt I say!!! And as for the people that just reply with sarcastic, unhelpful, negative replies... you should also not bother to reply or join another site. Obviously, its good to get different points of veiw BUT surely people can put there points across without personal insults, were all grown ups!!!!!!!! I love this site and my FNCC with everyone...... but wonder if someday I might say something one person dont like (I probably already have !!) and then get hung drawn & quartered by everyone else............... ????????????? So i'll quote the wise words of Ali "LETS ALL PLAY NICE, PLEEEEEEASE" :wubclub:
