We have four children the oldest is 10. This emmigration procedure is quite complicated so i was wondering if there is any advice you guys can tell us what we need to do from start the ball rolling. I have tried to points calculator for us and we get in on my wifes occupation alone. So where do we go from here. Apply for a visa !! Where is the offshore industry situated?? These are the questions i hope to aquire from you guys. But if there is any help you can give i would mostly appreciate it

    regards

    Hi Andy,

     

    The first thing you have to do is get your wife's skills assessed before you can subit your application. All information is available on http://www.immi.gov.au where you can download all the forms and information books you will need. Nurses have to have their skills assessed by ANC and their webside is http://www.anc.org.au

     

    Hope this helps.

    The ANMC unlike the NMC in the UK does not hold registration. Once they have assessed her skills (which is for the visa application), she will have to register to work with the nursing board in the state you want to live e.g. Queensland, NSW, WA etc., but this (nursing board reg) can be done later and not a pre-requisite of getting your vias

     

    The ANMC website gives you all the information you need

    Hi Andy

    Welcome to the forum!

     

    Offshore industry has to be WA especially up north in PORT HEADLAND and KARRATHA but also the TASSIE STRAIT.

    There is huge development on the North West shelf in WA and the expansion into the northern parts of the coast. Theres alot of flyin flyouts from Perth.

    Theres a few diving companies located up there. I'm in the mooring business and I know a few of the dive companies upthere, however the bigger projects might have their own types. Oceanics is one such dive companyand Mermaid Marine is a facility up there.

    You could try googling port headland and dampier port authorities for moreinfo.

    Hope this help :D

    If you want any further info just ask...

    You two as a couple should be in huge demand. I'd be tempted to send an email direct to some companies and find out if they'd sponsor you to come over. Also the state government are in a position to do this same if your skills are in demand.

     

    It might be worth having a look on http://www.seek.com.au or contact WA employment agencies specialising in your skills to find out about potential sponsorship. It takes about 6 weeks for your visa to be processed and won't cost you more than medicals/xrays. They may even help with relocation costs.

     

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Best of luck to you and your family.

    Hi Andy

     

    Have a look at the new DIMA site (as from 1/7). There is a section on Nurses (in the skilled migration section) which are in high demand and are being priority processed. I would suggest that a 136 would be your best route under your wifes name.

     

    Best wishes

    Hi Andy

     

    To add to what Phil has said, a lot of nurses also emigrate under employer sonsorship initially, because it is quick and there will be instant job-security on arrival. I think the deal is that after a probabtionary period, the employer agrees to sponsor them for permanent migration.

     

    However, I've read a couple of articles which suggest that being a temporary resident is not advantageous tax-wise, and that it is better to go for PR from the start if you can. Others could explain this to you better than I could.

     

    I did a Google search for ROV Technician + West Australia. As someone else has said, there seem to be plenty of job-adverts for them.

     

    Bear in mind though that I've endless posts about Perth recently (my sister lives there) and a lot of people seem to be worried that house-prices in Perth have become - or are swiftly becoming - as high as they are over here.

     

    Good luck with your plans.

    hello

    I too am a nurse and on a recent rekkie trip to oz was told that british nurses are being fast tracked through the visa application process in as short a time as 5 weeks, the sponsorship route is also quick however the downside to that is your wife would be contracted to the agency/trust that has paid for your sponsorship for upto two years which may sound like job security in the present nhs climate!! but in reality would be a nightmare if your wife hated it, with the visa route being quite quick its probably best doing that then your as free as a bird!!

    Are you using an agent? we are and have found it much easier than people who are doing it themselves, but much more expensive aswell!!

    hope this helps

    Beth. :D

        I've recently returned home after my working holiday visa but would like to go back at some point. My partner is a permanent resident and I would like to live out there with him for up to 12 months. I've looked into the visitor visa but it looks like a lot of people get declined so I'm not feeling to confident about it. What visa would be best for this?

        Hi guys
        Can anyone help with this question (as I can't find anything on the Etihad website!).  We are moving from Manchester to Brisbane on a PR visa in September 2017.  We have 42,000 guest miles with Etihad.  Ideally I want to use some of these to take an extra suitcase(s) with us but I've been told that we won't know how many miles we need for an extra bag until we book the flight and have a booking reference.
        We are sending the majority of our stuff over by sea in a movecube in the next few weeks and if I can't use the air miles to take the extra case I will obviously need to factor in sending more stuff in the movecube. Why can't Etihad just state an extra suitcase is 30,000 miles or whatever it is!! Does anyone know the answer?  We have a 3 year old child so the idea was to take a suitcase of toys so she has familiar things around her when we arrive - if not it's a 3.5 month wait before it arrives by sea.
        Thanks!

        Hi,
        me and my sister are both over 18, and are dependent in a de facto(temporary) visa application for our mom and her partner. We stated that we are still studying as to why we are dependents even if we're over 18.  We lodged the application last Dec 2016 and we're still waiting for the approval til now. We're currently in a tourist visa in australia. 
         
        My first question is: how likely is it that our visa will get approved? We've been waiting for 6 months now, and we havent heard from them yet.
         
        this end month, our tourist visa will expire and i am planning on going back to our country but my sister and mom are planning on extending for another 3 months. 
        My next question is: is me going back to our country alone and separated from my mom and sister will affect the decision of the embassy to our application?
         
        please help. Thank you!

        Hi,
        I am moving to Melbourne in June 2017 with my husband and two children (7 & 4).  My husband will be working in Bundoora.  We have been looking into living within areas approx. 20 km from his work place...Eltham, Templestowe, Research, Diamond Creek etc...
        I am hoping for some local knowledge and recommendation of the local schools (they all look good online).  We are moving from a small east coast village in Scotland and from a primary school with approx 100 pupils, therefore a smaller school would be desirable.
        Any local knowledge on the different suburbs would be greatly received.  Thanks.
