Not sure which route to take...

Recommended Posts

Bit of a long story but basically my girlfriend has moved to the Gold Coast for school and I need to get over there as soon as I can. Initially I thought I'd apply for a migrant visa but a) I've read it can take over a year to be approved and b) I'm in IT (web development / marketing) which doesn't seem to be SOL.

 

I think my best bet is to get a working holiday visa for a year and then extend it to a second year? The thing that bothers me is that I'm limited to 6 months per employer and need to work agriculturally for a bit to qualify for the second year? Is there any way around these things? If I got sponsored would that do it and how hard is that to get? Any other options?

 

Many thanks

I will move this to the migration section as you may receive some good advice over there.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

How long will she be in school for, and is this a temporary move or are you looking to stay once her course finishes?

 

Have a look at the occupation lists for the 457 and 856 visas. It's quite common for people on WHVs to find an employer willing to sponsor them for a longer term visa.
