Sorry to be all doom and gloom but I thought those of you that are thinking of coming to Adelaide may be interested in todays news. If not already aware of.You can view on adelaidenow.com.au/world
Just list a few lines for your information.
Australia`s intake of skilled migrants will be cut by 18,500 over the next three months to protect local jobs.
First reduction in a decade,and will cut Australia`s intake from 133,500 to 115,000,workers from the building and manufacturing trades will be effected the most. This means bricklayers,plumbers,welders carpenters and metal fitters will no longer be able to be sponsored by an employer or granted a permanent visa.
However, workers in the health, medical, engineering and IT proffessions will still be allowed to work in Aus under the programme. :D
Australian student or work visa applicants in the Uk will soon have to pay a migrant tax.
Expected to be $106 and levied on applicants from outside the European Union.
Suppose not a big drama with all the costs you already have to get into Australia.
Just on the above part,will be reviewed regulary,so I am sure things will improve in the future and you will still have a good chance of getting into Australia. :v_SPIN:
