Job offer for Australian potential migrant (Urgent Help)
 
Dear all,
I have asked this question to Aramco (biggest oil producer company in the world based in saudai Arabia) and need your advice here from immigration point of view. I am holding and Arabian nationality (not GCC) and just got a very good job offer from Aramco. I like the offer which base salary is attractive for me with my only 7 yrs experience on oil industry (oil field Services Company). I am holding a master degree from western university. The base salary + the overbase is around 5K GBP (I need to say that in order for your to help me in my below long term calculation)*The challenge is that at the same week I got the offer, I got a call from Australian immigration agency saying that we are at the last step of permanent residence migration to Australia and I have to pay in order to lodge the DIAC. I have already paid something around 5K USD and I need to pay additional around 6K USD for final step in order for them to process my final visa request which will take around 6 months to be ready. I need to stay in Australia around 4yrs later to get the citizenship. I have wife and 2 kids.*For long term prospective, should I accept the offer or migrate to Australia. Does nationality really matter to sacrifice 5 yrs in expensive Australia especially after I got this offer? If I skip migration I am going to lose the 5K USD already paid?Your urgent support and advice are much appreciated.

Cheers

11k for a visa, do you have anything in writing from Oz immigration, like a file number or HAPID number?
Call the Oz embassy visa section where your agent submitted your application and ask questions.

Hi Hero, i think someone with more knowledge of 190 visa should answer.

Hi,

By looking at the cost you stated above it clearly shows that you hired a consultant for the visa which is why you are paying double then the usual DIAC fees. In long term its definetly worth it mate. Its upto you wut u think about ur future n more importantly ur kids future. My advise its worth spending 6K for australian residence it will give u more opportunities and career benefits then working in middle east now.

Cheers

GO for OZ
 
OZ stands for australia here
So I am also in oil and gas service industry and I understand wat u would feel like. But I think moving to OZ is a much better decision. From what i have understood you have received INVITATION TO APPLY now and there is still a lot of work to do and pay fee 3060+1530(spouse)+1500(kids). After this it could take up to a year before the visa is granted to you. Accept the new job but also apply for immigration.
Is it a FIFO job?
If so u can always relocate family to OZ wen u get the visa and keep working in Aramco until u find a better job in OZ.
I work in Services in Pakistan but planning on 190 WA sponsorship and move to Perth.
Hope it helps
Best of luck

Thanks all. In fact I don't want to lose my money and finally change my mind. What is the real value of Australian citizenship if I got good job with nice salary and get rid of headache and waiting 5 yrs and maybe I eventually not get the benefit of 5 yrs waiting. Once again I am afraid to regret in future ???

Cheers for
