Hi guys,i am looking to get a 175 visa for australia,i am 31 and single,and a qualified plumber,but i have a question on the imma website it says about did i have occupation for at least 12 of the last 24 months.as i live in ireland the country is in very bad recession and it is impossible to try to get a plumbing job,as a result of that i didnt work 12 of the last 24 months only small jobs in my local area,my question is does this affect my trying to get a 175 visa? and or is there anyway around this?:unsure:any info would be great guys and thanks again

Yes you need to be working in your field for at least 12 months! They will look for P60's and references to show you have been working for employers in your trade.

 

You could speak to a migration agent, they might be able to tell you some way around it! THe fact that you have been unemployed may have some bearing on the rule, maybe theres some way around it!>?!

 

This country is in tatters...... i'm off in April, had enough of it here!

 

Good luck!

to add to 'ilovemilkeymoos' (one of the more interesting names ive seen on this site!) when I sat my Vetassess for Joinery I had to prove the years I have worked with payslips and a reference, I understand you are self employed but immi and vetassess want to see every bit of info you have, i.e p60s. talk to them though, you never know, they may offer you advice.

 

Good luck

You might be able to develop a visa strategy. I suggest you consult a registered migration agent.

I would call Immi under a pseudonym, and explain your situation.

 

Good luck
