186 visa and skills assessment as chef in rural victoria

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

after hours searching for informations on the internet here my post.

I am a qualified chef in germany and since then worked 5 years as a chef ( 3 years chef de partie in new zealand, 5 months cdp in australia).

I want to get a permanent residency visa cause my work and holiday expires in june. i found a sponsor here in rural victoria and was thinking to apply for a 186 visa. does anyone have experience with this visa? is it possible to get pr with a sponsor and direct entry?

I am working as well on a skills assessment with tra. turns out they need heaps of informations to assess my skills. i have work references and payslips from the last 3 years but not before that. should be enough though as they write i need to proof 3 years of experience. I am struggling with the letter they want to explain in own words what i worked in each job. does it need to be really detailed? would be a few pages long per employer i guess.

any help/experience on the 186/187 visa or skills assessment will be much appreciated.

The first thing you need to do is check if your employer is willing to go down this route. It is a much longer and expensive route than most sponsorships and there is no guarantee it will be approved before your WHV expires. I would suggest you and your sponsor seek advice from a registered migration agent.

Thanks for the fast reply.

I spoke already with my employer and that's all god. he's gonna support me in any way he can to help me going down that road.

With the migration agent its a good point. i will start looking for one who lives close to support me.
