Converting 457 to PR advice +?skills assessment

Recommended Posts

Guest sandiep

Can anyone offer any advice? Migration agent we spoke to we felt he was less than helpful. We are in Melbourne on a 457 visa, been here 6 months and want to go PR. Hubbie a UK Royal Navy artificer engineer but has no degree but brought in by company as Engineering Manager. I think skills assessment would say he needs degree to pass to pass. Job title is project engineer which is not on Australia's job title list. He is 45 in April. Work will sponsor him probably after 2 years but he will be over 45 and we are concerned they may change their minds at the last moment and he couldnt aply for independent cos of his age. I am an RGN but have not worked for 3 years and would prefer not to right now as have 3 kiddies and very busy!! Dont know how new rules will affect our application if we apply after being here a year (Feb 09)Can anyone recommend migration agent who may be able to help with engineering skills assessment and PR? Thanks

Hi Sandiep

 

I agree with the previous posters. Since you are in Melbourne, Go Matilda are the obvious choice of Agents:

 

Go Matilda - Your Gateway to Australia - Contact and Feedback

 

Stephen Dickson does the skills assessments for them, I think. If he is not the right chap, he will pass you on to whoever is.

 

Best wishes

 

Gill
