Guest bton_uk

Hi,

 

I've got a Job Offer in Sydney with full sponsorship, the company has filled all the documentation with the OZ. government, does anyone know how long it will take to get a reply from the OZ. government to process my nomination number???? :?

 

Cheers

My friend had sponsorship for a Sydney based company last Autmn. It was supposed to take about a month to clear but it ended up taking about two months.

Can I be cheeky and ask either how old you are or whether the company / migration, have limits on age? :lol: Most other visas are under 45 whereas my husband is applying, aged 46 and I've only found one thing saying "under exceptional circumstances, over 45" and I'm worried that we've either missed the boat or I'll have to retake my finals to get in as a physio!

Depends what trade your in, you can still get in on a skilled visa, with points and stuff..... hope that helps....

I'm 28 but I was trying to get my application sorted before I turn 30 as I'd have more points, but, like Pat says, it depends what trade you're in. You could probably make the age points up somehow?

 

Plus, my girlfriend is coming with me as my defacto spouse. She's a little over 30 and isn't in an occupation on the skill list. My migration agent found out (or rather, knew) that we would be able to go together.

It's not really a question on making up points - I'm only 37 with a job on the skills list [but a horrendous and expensive exam to take in Oz before I can even start the visa process!] so it makes sense for my husband to just be transferred within his company out there however, everything I've read says "under 45". His company don't seem to know and when I read a little it intimates that as long as you can get a visa [i.e. sponsored?] you're OK. Perhaps we'll have to see what he gets offered and whether the Aussie lot know more!

I'm with you on that one bton! :D

Its always puzzled me - what exactly do they do that you can't do yourself?

 

Its all on the immigration website. I guess under 'exceptional' circumstances it might be wise but otherwise a waste of money! Your not judged in any way because you don't use an agent as its the same form.

 

:shock:

I take your point, I did start on the department of immigration but I got the impression form that that I wasn't eligable. It was an agent that informed me that I was (on a skilled sponsored visa that I hadn't even seen in the information I had gathered previously). Apart from that, reading through the paperwork I got lost pretty early on.

I asked an agent [at a fair] exactly the same thing as my friends managed it alone [however they had to try 3 different times over 5 years!]. The main point of what the agent could offer seemed to be "inside" information on when the cap had been reached as it seemed that timing alone could save you being rejected.

hi

 

I'm 27 and will hopefully be coming to Sydney in october for on a 4 year working visa. My new employer says that my girlfriend can come and work as a "defacto" spouse as long as we can prove we lived together for 1 year.

 

only problem is she might not be coming over at the same time as me (prob about 3 months later)

 

will she able to work on my visa?

 

cheers

Exams? Ye gods! What's your occupation?

Hi Choobs

Exactly my response....exams! I'm a physio and, as usual, Aussie [and NZ and US] physios can work here but we're not "qualified" to work there. I have to do written exams here and then fly myself to Oz to do 3 vivas on patients there [all comes to about £3000] to be allowed to earn the paltry wage! Although I appreciate they want you to fulfil a basic level, when you've spent 15 years specialising in one of the 8 or so branches you can take, things have changed so it basically means retaking your finals...and those were bad enough 1st time. Praps I'll just go as a personal trainer or masseur or something which isn't regulated and earns more!! Here endeth the rant! :evil:
