I am hoping that the this web site can help me. I have just been told that I am to be made redundant at the end of Jan 2011. This could be my last chance to move on with my life. I am considering using my redundancy money to purchase my 475 visa. My job is on the sol list and the state wanted list. I have family friends (North Haven) who will put a roof over my head in Adelaide. Using an agent for my Visa it will cost around £5000 to move over + airfare (one way.)
I am trying not to bombard people at this early stage with questions but I guess thats what everyone does at first.
I am 37 years old (or young).. and have been working in the M&E Consulting Engineering as a draftsman/Technician for 10 years. I have moved away from my home in England and worked in Scotland for the last 5 years. Just renting accomodation but with the same firm. I will have to sell my car....boo who.... but nothing lasts forever.
I have 2 questions for now if anybody can help...
1. Who should I use to obtain my Visa (should I do it myself with some guidance or use a recongnised rep). I understand though, I will have to take the English test to get enough points.
2. Once the visa is obtained.. do I need to have a job before I move out to Adelaide.
Well theres me for now.
Anybody with any hellos or friendly gestures please email.
