Skilled worker possible maximum age change

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all, for those like myself rapidly approaching 45yrs old & undecided, take comfort from a reply from Go matilda after my enquiry....

    "The age limit for general skilled migration is still 44.

    It is anticipated that the age threshold will increase to 49 when a new points test is introduced on 01/07/2011"


    This may give people like me a bit more breathing space....Paul.

    I also saw this and passed on the info to a friend who's presently 48. He's a painter and decorator and desperately wants to migrate here.


    We pestered him to submit an application before he became 'too old'.


    Let's see if he gets another chance.

    The new changes are going to make it hard even for nurses etc. I think they will have to review some of the changes i.e. instead of zero points for over 45's, maybe if you prove a certain amount of work exp you get extra points that way?


    Seems so stupid they should let us take the skills test then fly over for 3 months and if we get work we can stay. Deffo more tradies needed now with all the flooding etc.


    Good luck peoples.
