No luck. Returned to Canada now, but keeping eyes peeled in case there are employers who may nominate. Have you got any prospective employers who may sponsor you? Where did you graduate from?

Good luck

Thanks for reply.. sorry you had to leave
Graduated from UWA in Perth and no employee willing to sponsor me here. Am looking at applying for a 485 visa (Skilled Graduate Temporary Visa) but it also seems quite difficult - i have to find an occupation on the list that is closely related to what I studied and the only options that are even remotely similar are:
- Reseach and Development
- Business and Information Professional (not elsewhere classified)
- Market Research Analyst

These were suggested to me by an immigration agent, although I'm struggling to mould my degree to any of the above. If you are still interested in returning to Aus you should look at the 485 visa because I am sure you can also apply off-shore (however I think it needs to be within 6 months of graduating - so your time-frame may be narrowing).

Thanks again and good luck to you too!

If you have a 485 visa, you can apply anytime while you are on that visa, details @ Skilled – Independent (Residence) visa (subclass 885) including other eligibility requirements.
The eligibility system and processing priorities have been changed in the last year or so, with some more change due to take place from mid this year so have a read of the relevant information on the Whats New Link @ top of the above page.

Sorry - no luck. Truth be told I have not even submitted my application yet, so I guess I would not know eh? Its getting really difficult now I hear. If only we could find employers who would nominate us! Where did you graduate from? LLB or Juris Doctor? Good luck and take care.
