    Julia & Steve, Olivia (6) & Molly (3)

     

    We have recently instruced an agency Visabureau to apply for a SIR 495 visa for our family.

     

    We have just completed the TRA skills references which has taken a huge amount of time. Its very detailed (apparently has to be), it hasnt been sent off yet but the agent is happy with it.

     

    We are very exited and apprehensive about a move to Adelaide - but hopefully will turn out to be the best decision.

     

    Ive snooped around this forum for a few days and decided to register. Its all a bit daunting I think. Must be more confident.

     

    Hope to chat more soon.

    Hi there and welcome to the site

    It doesn't get any less nerve wracking as the process goes along I am afraid but it does get more exciting too

    Good luck!

    Hi and welcome to the site!

     

    It does get more exciting - we are waiting for our visa to be granted - its like waiting for Christmas without an actual date to aim for.

    We did find the TRA the worst bit of the whole process - so much info to gather and get right but it is great when it comes back accepted and you can move on to the next bit.

     

    Good luck with it and shout if you get stuck - still have all ours on the pc!!

    Hi Julia, Steve & Girls, welcome :)

     

    I must agree the TRA was the longest & most difficult stage for us..........& the waiting.......... 8)

     

    If you are using an agency, ensure you get sent the TRA details that they send off as you will need them when you apply for PR after 2 years. I've just had mine emailed over to me.............its only about 50 sheets :roll:

     

    But I would rather have them than lose them 8)

     

    Good luck

    Hiya Lisa

     

    I am sorry I think I made a boo boo :cry: what I MEANT to say was you need the TRA information for licensing & stuff alike (especially in Ashleys trade) not PR - ooops...............sorry

    BUT then I thought you probably won't have to do anything different to what you have done already for PR 8) thank goodness BUT to be safe I asked for everything to be sent onto me so I could keep the copies safe :) - this the agency agreed with.

     

    I don't know about you guys, but once me & Ash did all the TRA work we just sent it to the agency & that was that, so rather than worry about it when he applies for his licence or 2 years down the line with PR & trying to remember what we sent etc - we will have the docs nice & safe

     

    Cheers

    Hiya Angela

     

    Thats a relief - thought I had read nothing about having to do another skills assessment unless you changed career :roll:

     

    Luckily we do not have to worry about a licence when we get there :lol:
