That's my point, don't expect any so bring savings or rely on your wages.
Visa granted !!!! 3/4/09
Arrived in Adelaide 24/08/2009
I'm taking the job. I've been trying to get there for the last year. Was just trying to work out what was best for me and my family. I was really unsure about paying the £2500 up front to the agent but I think now it is for the best. It's a foot in the door and as long as Mechanic isn't taken off the skills list I should be able to get permanent residency at the end of it. My savings will be wiped out getting there and buying new tools lol so the wages had better work out. I reckon I'll be spending a few dollars on gumtree to start with to furnish the house.
Firstly dwb well done on the job. Could ask if you used an agency or sought the job directly?
Pm me if you prefer.

Some applicants are willing to pay an agent who is acting for a prospective employer.
Some employers pay all the costs and some pay part.
Anyone who relies on advice from an agent who was retained by a prospective employer should seek independent advice.

Hi, we have started with a migration agent in the uk for a state sponsored visa. My OH has been unable to get 7's in the IELTS test, he is only 0.5 off each time. He has applied for a job in Adelaide ? We have been told by the employment agency that they use a company to arrange the 457 visa at a cost of $2600 but as we have already started with our migration agent we will continue to use their services.
Which would be quicker ? To continue with a state sponsored visa or the 457 ?
Any advice anyone ?
