This is my first time here so I hope that I make sense. My wife and i, children, daughter 6 and twin boys 18months are at the early stages of trying to make a move to Adelaide, I am a plumber,my wife does accounts (AAT not recognised in Oz), I am trying to get a skilled migration visa and at the stage of proof of working for last 10 years, I need to get 7s in the ielts for a 489 visa,had one go and failed, but still confident. Providing all goes well, could anyone tell me the process after the two years temporary are up, like how long does a permanent visa take to obtain, how long before we would be entitled to help with childcare as my wife would like to work as soon as poss. Any info would be appreciated any similar scenarios or families at the same stage heading that way.
Thank you Smurtonio.
