Joiner needing to move before November

Recommended Posts

Hi

im going to try and make this short and sweet but it is eagher long and complicated but I'm hoping someone can help. 

I am 44 at the present time, 45 in November which I've heard is the cut off age for a visa, is this correct? 

I have family in Adelaide, a first cousin with PR who is all for sponsoring me. Has this kind of visa where he just clicks sponsor and I've got a visa gone now? ( obviously a little less straight forward than that but you have the jist)

ive been told that I can only get a skilled migrant visa now, is this correct?

10 points for my qualification NVQ3

10 state sponsorship or cousin

5 points job experience

20 points IELTS ( English exam superior pass)

15 points for my age

is this the only route I can take by getting a skilled migrant visa? And does anyone know if this is possible within the short time frame I have?

can I not just find someone who is willing to offer me a job, have them sponsor me and hey presto, visa appears? Has this way now been scraped ? 

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Yes, the 457 has been stopped.

If you really want to get on this quick then I suggest you consult and be prepared to pay for, a reputable migration agent to help you. If you really have no clue of the process or what it may entail and want to lodge quickly, an agent can tell you soon enough if you'd meet the requirements. 

I think you have to lodge an EOI first however and if that is accepted you'll be invited to apply.

Do you know, if it's possible to get all the needed paperwork in and on route that as long as I have lodged my visa application before I turn 45 do I still keep those points? Does that make sense? I realise I need a good visa agent just need to find a good one. Heard a lot of bad stories about some of them to be honest

There are a number of decent agents that post on our sister site PIO. Any of those would be a good starting point if you are in a hurry.

I don't know what the latest is on age requirements and how it works I'm afraid.

No. It is now 50.

 

May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent for advice about strategy?
