Hi Everyone,

Looking for a quick vote as whether to use an agent or not? Did you go it alone, how was it? fairly easy or wish you had used an agent?

I am not sure - I have been on the vetassess website and have read up a little on their (I have emailed and am waiting a reply) as to which would be the better option for us. Presumably the 457 Skilled Visa then apply for permanant residency when that expires - this is my initial thoughts!!! My husband is a plumber / gas engineer and need his skills assessed to gain the equivilant White Card and appropraite certificates to work in Austrailia.... its all very confusing!! We aim to be employed initially I think its safer and better option to begin with.

we have been in talkwith Down Under Tradies and he can partake in a theory course back here in the UK and upon completion they will submitt our CV on our behalf to companies looking to recruit - in hope of sponsorship!!! Its all very new to me and I am trying to cross every T and dot every I but it is a great deal of research required to get this better life we all dream of having lol....

I took your advice and subscribed to the Australia and new Zealand Magazine today - I look forward to recieving it ....

I guess we came to decide melbourne over other places, the climate is probably more to our tastes, the sports and the arts.

My children adore the beach (I mean adore the beach) and the coastal reviews were ace!!! combining that with the climate is a win win!!

If we chose to live in a suburb it seems easily commutable to get the best of both beach and city....

What is your preference ....

Hi, ASA are a migrant agent, I was assessed by AIM (Australian Institute
Management) so your wife would need to apply to the medical version; ASA provide
the forms and will check all the details prior to submission.  It cost me
$350.00 for the AIM fee; I did all the paperwork myself and ASA checked it so
minimal cost for their services.

Applied for skills assess with ASA Consultants in Jan.  Took me 3 mths to prep all docs with authorised signatures & evidence of qualifications.  App took 4 wks for approval. Rcvd certificate; no expiration. 

Don't delay - do it today
