Introducing myself.

Originally from the UK and have been in Sydney since September 2010 and working on a 457 since March 2011.

Recently made redundant, so have applied for a Partner Visa 820...probably should have done this a while ago, but didn't think of the worst case scenario.

Submitted my 820 in September 2013, decision ready and checked by a migration agent. I submitted it to the Sydney office with all medicals, police checks etc. Received acknowledgement, so just waiting for a decision.

It can't come soon enough, as I'm stuck in limbo until it is granted or someone takes on my 457, which is proving tough in my industry.

Been offered a couple of jobs, but HR have stepped in to block it, as my sector is currently laying off staff and can't be seen to taking on sponsored roles in such an environment.

May have to head back to the UK to get some income in the interim...

Welcome Dayvt

Hello Davyt,

Welcome to this forum.

I am a students from Tilburg University, which is located in The Netherlands. For an international research course, I study the introduction of a product in Australia.
To study the introduction of this product in Australia, I would like to gain insight into the culture and market of Australia. Therefore I conduct a survey.
But the problem is that I don't have a network in Australia.

Do you maybe know how to handle this problem?

Thanks for your helpfulness!
