Initial visa guidance

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My partner and I are both in our 20s and are beginning to look into the required visas to immigrate to Oz. My role would fall under marketing specialist code 225113 and my partner recently started a new career as a carpet/vinyl/lvt/timber floor fitter which would most likely be 332111.

 

I have just a few questions if anyone would be kind enough to advise please? 
- I’ve seen others in a similar position to my partner suggest possibly applying as a wall and floor tiler or a joiner, is there any truth to this? 
- who do you think would have a higher chance of being granted a visa as the main applicant? 
- which visa would most likely lead us to PR? 
 

Appreciate you helping a newbie out 🙈

The best advice is to have a consultation with one of the many reputable migrant agents that post on here.  It will be a small outlay in the scheme of things and will put you on the right track as to what visa if any you can apply for and the best way to do so.

Have a word with Suncoast  Migration or Go Matilda, but nothing can happen right now, because applications aren't even being looked at (apart from a few 'priority' applications).   

If you are in your twenties and haven't had a WHV (working holiday visa) yet, your best bet might be to wait till the borders open and come over on a WHV.  People tend to assume you have to do bar work and travel around on a WHV, but actually a lot of people come and work in their usual job.  It would give you a year to suss out Australia to make sure it's where you want to be, and also to make some industry contacts.
