The Adventure Starts Here


Myself and my family are very interested in migrating to Australia, however we are unsure as to whether my husband who is a Coded Welder will even be eligible for a visa (work visa or sponsorship).  He has not gone through an apprenticeship, just has gained his codes through training courses and has over 10 years welding experience.  From what I have read it could be very hard to actually get any type of visa unless you have an apprentice, does anyone know what is the situation.  Also we have been in contact with a number of migration agencies which some have said they can get us a visa and some have said no.  We don't want to spend a fortune and then be rejected.  Any advise would be appreciated.
