Email for Immigration? Help

Recommended Posts

Hi,

In 2017, I was in Australia for 6 months on a Working Holiday visa.

My travels sadly got cut short with my brother's emission to hospital in the UK. 

During my 6 months in paradise, I was in employment for 3 months with an electrical company in Adelaide. Sadly, I didn't work 38 hour weeks for the first month so I don't think I've accrued the 88 days tally.

I have saved back up and would like to revitalise the dream of living and working in Australia. 

I wondered if there was an email address I could send over details & evidence of my trip to let me know the options I have available to me.

I was unsure of which visa to apply for this time around? 

Should I be applying for a second year working visa?

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Apologies if I haven't posted in the correct place. 

 

Regards

Dominic 😊

Hi welcome to the forum.  In order to be able to apply for a 2nd holiday visa you need to have completed 'specified work' and take place in an eligible postcode in regional Australia

I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

Working in Adelaide would not have qualified you anyway. It also seems unlikely the nature of your work would.

Though Australia has closed its borders now and is likely to remain so for some time.

Sadly, there is no point in emailing immigration because the rules are very clear.  

You are only allowed to have one Working Holiday Visa, even if you didn't stay for the whole time on your first one.   And you didn't work in a regional area, so you are not eligible to apply for the second year working visa, either.

The only other option is one of the Skilled visas, either temporary (employer-sponsored) or permanent.   To be eligible,  you must have qualifications and experience in an occupation that is on the Skilled list.   If not, you can't work in Australia, end of story - unless you are willing to go back to college or university and retrain.

Sadly not the responses I wanted. 

Thank you for your time and reply to me. 

I was living with my auntie and uncle who are dual citizens now. 

With me being there nephew can they sponsor me? 

From my own research, I seem to think not..

Possibly - but you would still need a job on the skills list, a positive skills assessment and to meet the minimum points score:

Probably worth seeking out some professional advice on a potential way forward.

Hopefully from now until the borders open.

.

That might get you a few extra points but you still need an occupation that’s on the skilled list

It gets you the same points as a state nomination for a 491 visa, but removes the need to be nominated by a state. It does however need high points and they weren't issuing many invitations before it all shut down.
