After getting certified copies of my papers and reference letters I had to post them to Vetassess's Melbourne offices.

The wife was a Laboratory Supervisor at home and luckily enough she was offered a job as a Laboratory Supervisor here within a week.
What Part of Oz do you intend on coming to ???

Hi guys, I'm also an Electrician, I'm at the very early stages of the vetassess procedure with the idea if applying for WA state sponsorship. I have worked in the oil and gas industry for the last 5 years and previous to this I was primarily Industrial spark. I'm hoping to move out with my fiancÚ who is a lawyer. Just wondering if you could give me and hits tips advice etc on prospects, visa application timescale etc. any of your info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi the time line for your Vetasses will be probably around 3 to 4 months by the time you get your Practical results from Oz. You then have to apply to WA government for State sponsorship this normally takes around 3 weeks you will have to send them a copy of your passport your Vetasses assessment and your CV. If you are successful here you can apply for your Visa. Your eligibility is worked out here on a points system you have to have 65 points to be eligible, you get points for experience etc.
You will more than likely find that you only get 60 points. If you intend on using your wife's profession to get the 65 points she will have to have her skills assessed by an Australian authority. Your only other option is to do an IELTS English test. With this visa you have to live in your nominated state for at least 2 yrs. and roughly takes around 2 to 3 months.
There are a couple of rigs of the coast of Perth but I don't know a lot about how they recruit.
Hope this info helps.

Hi again. Thanks for that. Yeh, your bang on, I came up to 60 points but it says online that if your partners job is on the SOL you get the other 5 points. Hope so anyway.

How's is the money out there for the industry in general. If your working in the mines do you live in a camp or are you home every night. I hear there are alot of refinerys also down that way so hopefully plenty petrochemical work for me.

Can't wait to get out there. Currently live in Spain, this has been our motive to continue the relaxed lifestyle, rather than move back to the UK where there's nothing to go back for apart from family.

One more thing, is renting and buying houses quite expensive, or are there nice areas with reasonable prices?

Thanks again.
Paul

Hi Paul
If your partner has a skill on the SOL list you do get 5 points but her qualification will have to be assessed also.

The money is pretty good when you get out here you will only get a Pervisional electrical workers permit so chances are you will only get work as a trades assistant until you do your ETL course (Electrical Trade Licensing) this takes 2 weeks and there is a few places in Perth that do it. So as a trades assistant you will make around $35 p/h. When you get your licence it will be around $45-$50 p/h.

As for working in the mines and living in a camp it depends on the mine if you relocate to Kalgoorlie you can be home every night. If you go to a mine in the Pilbira you live in a camp 2wks on 1wk off fly in and out.

Now to the rent over here, brace yourself it's pretty expensive. A 2 bedroom apartment in a nice neighbourhood is going to cost at least $400 per week. A 3 bedroom house in a very good neighbourhood is going to cost at least $700 per week. Food shopping is roughly same price as UK. A log neck bottle of beer in a pub here between $7-$10.

Give me a shout if you need more info
Danny.

I haven't a clue mate. Who ever it is it's almost guaranteed that it will take months it might not be a bad idea to consider doing the IELTS test they are held in nearly every country in the world fairly regularly it will cost less than a second skills assessment and you will get either 10 or 15 points if you pass therefore you get well above your 65 points.
