    Safety Officer/ Cert IV in WHS

    I am assuming you are in the UK and asking if this will get you a job in Australia? In which case no. You would need at least three years experience. Though that is assuming the occupation is on one of the skilled lists, which I am not sure it is.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. The first thing is you mention a carpentry business. Are either of you a qualified carpenter? Or do either of you have another trade? I am afraid having a family member in Oz who is a citizen is of very limited help. It can in some circumstances add some extra points, but also has some negatives. Just a comment on the better life / relative moving back to the UK, it isn't a "better life" just a different one. Hence about half of those that move, return.

    over 65 & bridging visa

    Yes, and we are assuming the OP is British, so I am assuming you make your clients FULLY aware that reciprocal is not full Medicare by any stretch? I hope you also inform them of the pitfalls of what can happen should they live long enough through the visa processing and in 30 years fail the medical? i hope you also supply the complex financial advice an older person needs prior to such a move?

    Holiday pay for work for agency

    I would not concentrate on plumbing as it will require some college courses (expensive) and about a year to obtain a state license. If you are hoping to get a second year visa, then I would get your regional work done first. Look at Inge like bar work and restaurants, which can be more lucrative than you might expect as WA has a system of penalty rates which mean work can attract high rates on weekends and things.

    Primary School Teacher

    I am afraid if you want to teach, you must have four years of university education. The only option would be to do an extra year by doing something such as a masters

  10. There is no gauruntee that any one will get a particular job or type of work. It is impossible to gauruntee that.

    Moving to WA

    Welcome to the forum I would run your situation past a good registered migration agent. Camilla at http://www.newlifedownunder.com.au is a member of the forum and is well thought of.

    over 65 & bridging visa

    In theory yes. But. You need to be very clear about how this works. While on a bridging visa, you would have little or no access to state assistance. You would have limited acces to healthcare. Combine this with the fact this visa has a processing time of about 30 years, it means you would be spending all of your older years with limited access to any of the assistance most people rely on in their older years.

    RRV visa issue

    As ali says, getting a firm offer / contract for the role via the agency would be a good option if they are willing. I am guessing you are aware of the other big issue regarding your wife and first child? That if they did not enter Australia to make first entry within the specified time, their visas would have been cancelled. So, even if you get an rrv they can not travel with you.

    189 and 190 Visa invitation

    For a 189, the last minimum points invited were for those on 85 and there were not many of them. For the 190, are you a graduate of West Australia?
