Hi all- New member, first post. My friend is an American Welder (First Class) and he wants to come to Oz permanently. His skill is on the SOL and he has years of experience and otherwise qualifies. However, TRA will not assess his qualifications b/c he is not from a nominated country. The nominated countries are: China Fiji India Iran Ireland Korea (South) Pakistan Philippines South Africa Sri Lanka United Kingdom United Arab Emirates (UAE) My question is, are you serious?! He speaks English, has yonks of top experience in a skill in demand in Oz and the problem is his US passport?!:wacko: Interested in any migration lawyers' perspectives especially. It seems like a really odd, and perhaps discriminatory, result. Thanks in advance. Slodkiy
Hi all Hi all...husband's a Brit and I'm a Yank. We've been here now 15 months in Melbourne. This will be our 2nd Thanksgiving coming up. Doing our own spread this year as we went out to Captain America's for a burger last year. What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year? Anything interesting?
Guest posted a topic in UK ChatHow can a country,America which has turned into some kind of Aristocracy,a country run by and for the rich even dare criticize us?Whether it is their media or polticians .I don't think the USA is in a position to criticize any country in Western Europe let alone the UK.We have things like the NHS etc. We have the BBC with no adverts every 5 minutes like US tv.I can name many,many more things that benefit our citizens in so many ways.--These things are representative of a civilized country.NOT socialism.
