I appreciate it.

So, my job is in the CSOL list and should be assessed by vetassess or something like that.

My ticket to Australia is in 14 days so I'm afraid I'm too late to apply offshore. And anyways you said I would need a sponsorship before I apply...

I was wondering, what if I pay for the partner visa and get a bridging visa. Then, once on the bridging visa I look for a sponsor and change my visa from bridging visa to work visa?

Is that possible?
I think I've read somewhere that for employers is difficult to sponsor someone on a bridge visa?

I don't know if it's better to just stay on a tourist visa until I find a sponsor and my finances can allow me to then getting a bridging visa...
What do you think?

Thanks a lot everyone!
J.

It sounds a lot like you don't even expect to stay on the partner visa at all? I wouldn't apply for it if you, as CollegeGirl said, have trust issues. Just come on a working holiday visa and go from there would be my advice.

I think you would have a much better chance of finding employment on a Bridging Visa than you would on a tourist visa, because employers know you are NOT allowed to work on a tourist visa. The rest of it - I honestly don't know. There are a lot of unusual circumstances to what you're proposing doing and I simply don't know enough about skilled visas to tell you what's possible, what's feasible, and what's not. I hope someone can come along and advise you. If not, it may be worth a consultation with a MARA-registered migration agent to make sure you don't leave yourself with no options.

Hi Lexi,
I'm more than 30 and cannot go on a working holiday.
What about those media agencies you were talking about?

Thanks
