    • Thank you. Our points come out at 75 just on a quick check but I know that this can change. I will check out my husbands condition with a migration expert. thank you for your quick response 
    • The first thing to think about are visas and to ensure you are eligible. I am guessing you would be using your skills? In which case, go through the skills assessment for social worker to ensure you can pass that. With points, if you are including points for English language, you will need to take an exam to claim them such as ilets.  For jobs, you can look at seek.com.au to get an idea of jobs available.  While I don't think your husbands condition is likely to be a problem, when ever there is a medical condition I always recommend running it past a specialist migration agent just to make sure such as George Lombard

    • Hi thank you for taking the time to read my post. My husband and I are considering a move to Perth subject to visa approval. I am 35 and a qualified Social worker with 14 years post qualifying experience. My husband is 32 and is a QC laboratory technician for a paint company. We have two children aged 8 and 2. My sister in law lives in Perth and has been granted citizenship. We have done the initial points scoring which came out at 75 for a 189 Independent Skilled VISA.  I am wondering if anyone knows what the chances are of my finding work in the field of social work and my husband in manufacturing. My sister in law is doing some research for us but wanted a few opinions.  My husband also suffers from severe psoriasis and has been told that his condition would greatly improve if he was to love in a warmer climate and this would avoid him having to undergo regular Intensive UV treatment and other invasive treatments.  We are wanting to make the move to try and live a healthier lifestyle and so that our children can enjoy space and more freedom and less bloody litter!! Having been to Perth we feel we could settle there in the longer term. We have friends in Brisbane and Melbourne too so these would be our “holiday” destinations.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks :-)
