  1. Hi Ali, thanks for the response :-) Yes its devastating to be honest! I have no idea how the sponsor could let us pay all that money (everything we had!) and submit the application just to pull out so flippantly and completely disregard our future. It would seem there is absolutely nothing we can do about it either and I think he is well aware of this :-(
  2. Thanks for the reply :-) I'll have a look at MARA in regards to the Agent, they have been awful from start to finish in all respects! Unfortunately our WHV expired and we are not eligible for the second year. ..
  3. Hello, My boyfriend has been working as a Glazier in Perth and his boss agreed to sponsor him on the 457 Business Visa. We paid all the visa fees on his bosses behalf (around $10,000 through Migration Agents), submitted the application and we are now on a Bridging Visa. Last week, our Migration Agent chased up my boyfriend’s boss for a few final bits to complete the application: Tax Records/Financials and was told they would receive it by the end of the day. However when my boyfriend returned to the factory that day, his boss said he wasn’t handing over financial information for the sponsorship and then sacked him!! He is now avoiding all contact. Has anyone been in this situation and got any advice at all? In particular, anything we could try to get some of the money back, ways of finding another sponsor or anyone we could report the company too? It’s fairly obvious the company is dodgy if he panicked so much about tax records, even though he had been notified of everything he needed to provide! -The Fair Work Commission will not help us as the company is classed as a small business and you have to of worked for 12 months before they take on an unfair dismissal case, my boyfriends been working for approx. 11 months so just under! - Our Migration Agent said we don’t meet the criteria for a Skilled Visa and there are no self-sponsorships now Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks J Emma
