What do you do if your visa option is not obvious?


Recommended Posts

Seems I am no longer on any SSL, nor do I qualify for state nomination, no family, cannot use investment visa etc etc

Is anyone else aware of any other options? (other than to train for a role which is listed!)

A few migration agents tell me to start the ball rolling as things change all the time, anyone else experienced this?

They do make the holes in the sieve smaller all the time to narrow down the amount of people who can get into Australia, it is a bugger though.

Your occupation, 'optical dispenser' is on the csol which means you need a state or an employer to sponsor you. if no states are sponsoring this occupation then finding an employer to sponsor you is another option, maybe on a 457 visa. It is a long shot trying to find a job where the employer will sponsor from overseas but just something else to maybe look at.

Yes, of course you are right! I am struggling to find someone to sponsor me without seeming like I am desperate! In the UK I am quite well known in the industry and get many job opportunities with ease, in Oz it will be a very different story, added to this the extra expense an employer undertakes to sponsor someone from overseas
