  1. If you are eligible to apply for permanent residency, get your application lodged before March 2018 as I cant see many employers wanting to pay the skilling australians fund !!!!! Training requirement: Employers nominating a worker for an ENS or RSMS visa will be required to pay a contribution to the Skilling Australians Fund. The contribution will be: o payable in full at the time the worker is nominated. o $3,000 for small businesses (those with annual turnover of less than $10 million) and $5,000 for other businesses.
  2. UPDATE FROM IMMI NEWSLETTER So it appears as holders of 457 visa granted on or before 18th April 2017 will still be able to apply via TRT as long as under 50
  3. State Sponsorship

    I would never advise a client to apply for 190 state sponsorship if it was not their intention to honour the sponsorship, as verystormy has advised you could potentially face visa cancellation for providing false or misleading information. Currently it is not a legal obligation but a moral one, however I would not advise you to accept SS if you are intending to not even try and find employment and commit to the State.
  4. State Sponsorship

    I have been hearing that this may cause a problem if and when you are looking at Citizenship as you have not complied with the conditions on your visa!
  5. Sous chef and Chef de Cuisine required Sponsorship Available

    Thanks Rossy! Cant believe it but chefs are like gold-dust at the moment! This hotel wants a high calibre chef de cuisine with international hotel experience and they cant find one!
  6. hi I have a client looking for a sous chef and a chef de cuisine. Accommodation provided. Must have international hotel experience or similar. This position offers accommodation for a single person. Fantastic location. if you are interested please email me your resume and covering letter
  7. Scammed

    Hi Dave I am so sorry to hear of your terrible experience. Is this agent based in Australia and MARA registered? If not can your awful encounter be a word of warning to others, please use a MARA agent and yes there are certainly a few in the UK At least you can be assured that the agent concerned is qualified, trained and has upto date knowledge of migration law. I am a Registered Migration Agent MARN 1173200 based in Perth. Have you still got a 457 sponsor prepared to wait for you? Are they are WA based company? Let me know if you need any assistance. You can always email me
  8. 457 to PR

    are you not eligible to apply for a 186 direct entry visa if your employer is prepared to sponsor?
  9. 457 to PR

    In order to meet the eligibility for 186 temp transition you need to have worked for your nominator for at least 2 years in the 3 years before applying. You will need to have worked for the whole of that period, so if for example you took 6 weeks of leave without pay, you wouldnt be able to apply for the TRT visa till 2 years and 6 weeks after the commencement date. It sounds as if your employer has been acting unlawfully as you should have been paid the nominated annual salary for the whole of the time on your visa. I am a bit confused by the term casual as weedolly pointed out, that is not how a 457 works!
  10. More Interesting Facts about Oz Interesting to see how the country of birth of migrants has changed over the last census, one family households has decreased (no doubt due to costs and cultural lifestyles). In WA the average house is a 4 x 2 whereas the national average is a 3 x 2.
  11. Just some interesting facts from the recent Census that I thought I would share with the group!
  12. Is it really worth it?!! Advice needed please.

    Hi Neewbie, if it is a 457 visa, is it one of the occupations that have been removed of affected by a caveat? Maybe they are waiting for further information?

    Thanks ali and verystormy for the recommendation. I am in City Beach actually, so technically in the Western suburbs but NOR!!
  14. Working Holiday Visa Age Raised to 35

  15. Working Holiday Visa Age Raised to 35
