Default 1st post and i need as much help as possible

Hi everybody


Me and my wife are thinking about moving to Oz to improve our life and i`m looking for as much help as possible.The migration site is a bit daunting first off so i was wondering did you use a migration company or did you do it yourself.

I`m sorry if you get loads of these requests as i`m new here,if you have any links available please pass them on to me Also could you do me a list showing me what i need to do in numbered order ( we looking to apply as a skilled workers )


Thanks again

Ian,Angharad and Kelsey xxx

Hi Welcome to the forum. We used an agent. You need to get your skills recognised by the TRA first before you can put in an application to DIMIA. You can find loads on information on the immigration forum and if you do a search at the top of the page. Most people on here are very friendly and will give you loads of pointers. Good luck with everything

As Anne said sort your Tra first http://www.workplace.gov.au/workplac...itiatives/TRA/

Then down load booklet 6 from the main web site http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/books6.htm

I have done it all my self and think its quite straight forward if your case is straight forward . Tra went through ok visa should get answer on that soonish

Good luck

It's also tradition to give karma to the first person to help you. Just click the blue box on the left under my post! Ha ha ha ha LOL

It won't necessarily be the TRA you need to get your skills assessed by. It depends on what your occupation is. Go to the DIMIA website www.immi.gov.au and take a look at the SOL (Skilled Occupation List) to find what body needs to assess your occupation.

Check out Booklet 6 first to make sure you qualify for the visa you intend on applying for.
