Hi Ross

 

Welcome to Poms in Oz.

 

Since your friend is in Adelaide, I would suggest that you and he consider the RSMS visa:

 

Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (Subclass 119/857)

 

Employer Sponsored Migration Booklet - Australian Immigration

 

Do you have any formal, British qualifications in this field? Can you also prove that you have been employed as a plumber (which can include self employment) for at least 3 years hitherto?

 

Personally I wouldn't bother with trying to argue exceptional circumstances in your case. I'd be inclined to get Vetassess to do a formal skills assessment and be done with it. Then start the process for the RSMS visa, I reckon.

 

For details of the Vetassess process, please follow the link below and then follow the hyperlinks in that:

 

Plumber - General 4431-11 - Australian Skills Recognition Information

 

Cheers

Thanks for your reply Gill.

 

Yes i have all needed qualifications and proof of employment. I have already got all that paper work sorted as i had started to go for a independent visa, but due to all the changes and the lenght of time it may take to find out if il get it, thats when i thought maybe best to try going for the sponsership side.

 

Il have look through the imformation you have sent and see what suits us best.

Thanks again for your help its much appreciated.
