Congratulations Nello! Im in the same situation going for 189 carpenter. At the minute I can only show 4 years of tax and bank statements as I got paid a couple of years cash.

 

Do you think be better to go for a 190 considering I can only show the 4?

Was going to send a letter from my boss to say I was working them years getting cash but not sure that would be enough to satisfy immigration.

Fair play. I lived in Sydney for a year way back when and I enjoyed it.

Hi, congrats on getting your 189 visa!

i have 10 years experience in carpentry back home, I'm at the start of my path, could you point me in the right direction, i have no idea where to start without paying an Agent? or even if i should go and see an agent. i am also thinking of going for PR rather than skilled nomination visa.

i have 6 months left on my 2nd year 417 is this enough time?

thanks for any help

Gareth

Can I presume that you're "bound for Mellie"?
