Recommended Posts

My partner my 6 m/o daughter and I are currently trying to move to Australia, I'm having trouble finding a visa that is suitable to us, is this possible to move all 3 of us? Would we have to possibly move myself over then my partner and daughter? Which visa is right for us? Any help would be appreciated greatly!

One of you will need to have an occupation on the skills list, that's a good place to start.

My occupation is on the 2017 skill list, where do I go from there? Sorry I haven't much of a clue where to begin

Start here - Visa Finder  http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1

It will talk you through which visa may be applicable to you and how to apply.

Can you tell us what your occupation is, what your qualification is for this and how long you have been working in it?

I am a coach building engineer, can also be known as I fitter which I see on the list, I have been in the job for 4 years but only this year received the full qualification

You will need to check the skills assessment criteria for fitter as these are very specific in relation to duties and skills. 

Howver, a bigger issue will be that generally in order to pass a skills assessment you need a combination of qualification and post qualification experience. 

The assessing authority should be able to tell you how much of this is required - usually 2/3 years. 

You also need to calculate your points - you need at least 60. 

Once you are eligible for a visa (have a positive skills assessment and have passed an English exam if required which most people have to for points) you can lodge an expression of interest and wait to invited. Once invited you apply. You would be the main applicant with the rest of your family secondary and all would receive a full visa.

I tried to submit an EOI for a subclass 189 visa, although when coming towards the end of the form it would only allow me to submit if I had working experience in Australia already, maybe I am going for the wrong subclass? 

Do you think acquiring a working holiday visa first then trying to gain sponsorship would be a good idea or is this too much of a risk

Everyone's situation is completely different and you should be speaking to a Registered Migration Agent to ensure you do not waste your time or money. 

You cannot submit an EOI for a 189 until such time as you have a positive skills assessment for an occupation on the SOL and accumulated a minimum of 60 points.

It will really depend on your situation as there are many different visa subclasses.

You can do your research on the Immigration Website to get a basic insight, or consider an assessment with a Registered Agent.

You should not submit an EOI until you have done at least a skills assessment.
