Red face Work Visa Inquiry for Floral Desinger

Hello There!

I am a US citizen in my early 30's. I'm interested in working/moving to Australia. I recently visited the country for the first time June 2015.I stayed in Perth for 3 weeks and I just fell in love with the atmosphere and the opportunities there. I currently work in a flower shop in my hometown in Virginia USA. I've been in the floral industry for over 9 years. I love what I do but I'm finding (at least where I'm living) floral design to be a dying art. My area alone has gone from over 20 shops down to 3 in the last 5 years. The business owners here aren't taking their craft seriously and barely have any passion left. My inner creative self is screaming and I need growth terribly. I have not applied for an Australian work Visa just yet because I'm so confused as to which is the correct subclass for my occupation. I've researched the site and also spoken briefly to an agent in Perth and my head is spinning. I've also researched the city of Perth as far as florists and found several shops and even an academy where I could actually take a small course. I just know that I could grow there! Any information or advice as far as what subclass I should look into as well as general tips would be greatly appreciated!

If my memory serves me correctly, Florist is under ANZSCO Code 362111.

For WA you can be sponsored on sc 457. You need to find an employer who's willing to sponsor you or outside WA you can get state sponsorship in NT, SA, etc.

The rules are changing constantly so it's best to consult an RMA to assess your case further.
