    Mental Health - Application

    IT shouldn't do as long as her condition is well controlled by medication. However, I would strongly recommend you speak with a good registered migration agent.

    Asbestos jobs in WA

    The first issue is you would need to check if the occupation is on one of the skilled lists. As even for even company sponsored visas it has to be. Then, you would need to look at the current requirement for experience. I think it is three years qualified. But be aware, company sponsored visas are usually just temporary for a maximum of 4 years. If it is on the skilled lists, then you may be eligible for a permanent visa via skilled migration

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    I think a partner visa will certainly be the right visa, but for help, I would speak to a good registered migration agent. Camila is a member of the forum and is highly regarded and her email address is camilla@newlifedownunder.com.au

    Medicare or Uk reciprocal agreement

    The reciprocal agreement is there to keep someone alive until they can go home to get treatment. So, it would not cover something like a hip replacement

    Halls Head Pros and Cons

    Halls Head is lovely. A really nice beach and a good selection of shops and things. We lived a couple of suburbs down at Dawesville, both of which are part of mandurha. Which is a lovely small city and very pretty with everything you need. My advice is to get a short term rental for arrival and visit each area looking at properties as each area has a different feel. Before we moved, we had looked at a number of suburbs that we thought would be perfect for us, but when we went to look, the ones we thought were perfect were the ones we liked least and ended up in one we hadn't heard of. Do you have visas yet. What sort of jobs are you going to be doing as mandurha is a commute to Perth.

    Covid 19 Impact

    That sounds a bit suspect. Are they MARA registered agents? If you message me their details I will have a look for you and if not, send details of agents that can be trusted.

    Covid 19 Impact

    All visas are now open, however state sponsored can be hit and miss according to state and occupation. My advice would be to have a chat with a good registered migration agent.

    General Questions

    Hi and welcome. Generally, company sponsored visas are temporary normally valid for either 2 or 4 years. It is possible to buy property on such as a visa, but you would need to get permission from the Foriegn Investment Review Board. However, you would have to consider very carefully if should a purchase is wise on a temporary visa. If she were to lose her job for any reason, then you would have a very small window of a grace period before having to leave the country. For citizenship, you need to have been in Australia for at least 4 years with at least one year as a permanent residence

    Hi and welcome to the forum. We used to live a touch further south than where you are planning in mandurha

    44 ur old painter running out of options

    You agent is correct. It is very hard for anyone aged over 40 to get a visa and the a salute cut off for most visas is 45. Even for a 186 extra rules apply to anyone over 45 that make it impossible. What is your occupation?

    ACA moving to perth in 2022

    At present it is hard to say how things will be by then as it is likely there will be some shake up of system. If you are intending for this to be a permanent move, then you are best to apply for a permanent visa. Most sponsored visas are temporary and come with a lot of issues. You would also obviously be in competition in a job search with locally qualified people. Part of the sponsorship involves an employer showing they are sponsoring because there are no locally qualified people.
  20. I am not certain you understand why lockdowns happen. It is to protect health services from being overwhelmed. Simple as that. Look what happens if you don't, which is what some US states are currently doing. Hospitals are full of covid patients. Every ICU is full and 68 major hospitals are about to run out of oxygen. The result of that is that people are dying from the other things that normally need hospital care as the beds are all full and no space to treat them. As for vaccination. Yes, everyone has a right to chose. But, along with any right comes responsibility and the impact on other people's right. So, personally I would support a person not getting a vaccine on the condition they sign away their right to medical care of any description. Let Darwin manage it and remove the stupid from the gene pool.

    Partner visa - self applying?

    Hi and welcome. Partner visas are one of the easier ones to apply for and it shouldn't be too hard to do. If you do get stuck you can always use an agent then or just have the application checked prior to submitting.
  23. No, certain not not impossible to get work. While there is certainly a fair share of ageism in Australia, plumbers are in demand. I would plan on it taking a year to get your license. Earnings are also not paid like an apprentice, you should get a reasonable wage, but not that of someone with a license.
  24. You will need to gain a license. In order to do this you will need to work as a trade assistant for some time such (a bit like an apprentice) and undertake some college courses.
  25. It is a legal requirement for sponsorship to work full time. You are far better to look at permanent skilled visas than sponsored visas which are only temporary.
