Visas and Working

Hi all,

I'm 23 and want to go to Australia!

Just have a few questions if anyone can answer or help me out please.

I want to go to Australia in January which is exciting. I have a 4 year old girl which every visa seems to want no dependant children on it! I was wondering if anyone would know if it would be possible to maybe go to Australia on a Holiday Visa (ETA) for three months but in the meantime apply for migration.

I know they all take so much time and a lot of work goes into it all they just seem to take so long to do! My boyfriend is going over the end of October to start work and I want to be over there for January. I know if I do go over on an ETA I cannot work which is something i wanted to do, and then travel for a bit can I get around this some way?

Can anyone give me some information or lead me in the right direction?

I would appreciate all the help!

Thanks

Danielle

Hi,

You say your boyfriend is coming over for work in October - is he being sponsored? If so yourself and your daughter should have been included in the application. You can still add to the application I think - will need to look on Immi site.

He is just working on a working holiday visa for three months so he can apply for his second one. If its the case that he got a sponsor do u think it would matter that he is not the paternal father? I find that immi site so confusing!!

Oh okay then. I don't know much about the sponsored visas but from what I've read the paternity wouldn't be an issue. How likely is he to get sponsorship? Is he qualified and working in an area where he's likely to get sponsored? It's an expensive process for the employer but it does happen and having partners and dependants as secondary applicants is allowed.
So he is on WHV now? If he's working on getting his second do you mean he's doing his farm work? Or that he has a WHV and it will commence in October when he enters Australia?

Here is what happened he left early this year on a WHV and left us behind. I think he was there for around three weeks and came home - done no work.

Now we've decided to both go. He wants to go in October so he can work three months before his WHV is up in April.

I wanted to follow in January but because I have a dependant child I can't get a WHV. I did email and immi and they sent me three options of visas which I could use and bring a dependant child and also work. One being immigration and two others being some sort of sponsored visas. I find a lot of it to be quite confusing really.

My boyfriend has an uncle over there who lives there nearly ten years so he is staying with him.

Its annoying I can't get some sort of visa that allows me to do some sort of work with a dependant child. And not one that takes such a long long process!

It was a good idea emailing immigration, now look into those options. Some take longer than others and you have 5 months until you want to be there so you have some time.

What were the visas immigration suggested? Do you have a qualification? Look through the website with reference to the visa options and that might help get some idea in the work involved and length of time they take to get.

Having an uncle and a place to live is a big help when arriving. I lived with an aunt when i first got here.
