Hi soggy, dont know what body will be assessing yet.Hubbies a chemical process technician we have been told its not trade or managerial/ professional, so this may be the complication.Duncan clan yes it is frightening the costs of migrating I agree.
Hi, without knowing the details of your husbands job the closest "sounding" from the skills list is chemical plant operator, or petroleum and gas operator or Chemistry Technical Officer, the last one is assessed by vetassess the first two by TRA the first two are not on the skilled migration list and you would need to use the employer nomination scheme visa, in which case maybe sending his CV direct to employers or employment agencies may be a good place to start, they may help with visa application and you can do away with visa agents the last one is a 40 point job but there is no expensive assessment in UK.

Why not do it without an agent. You can download all the forms. We have done it ourselves because afer all you need to provide all the infomation for the agent. So far it has cost us $630(£282.00) to register with nursing council $20 (£9.00) to register with nursing council of the area I will be working in. $2080 (931.01) for the third part of the visa. £40 pounds to have certificates certified. £30 registered post (I think we have actually paid less). £40 for police checks £500 for medicals. £2 on telephone calls to Aus. Emails sent to Aus and £5.00 to cover the paper cost for printed applications. You need to down load 2 copies of each. Or download one copy and photocopy it prior to sending, just in case any get lost in the post. Total cost without agent £1800.00
