Visa Advice

Hey all,

I first want to say that this forum seems like such a great support system for anyone wanting to immigrate to Aus! I've read a lot of very helpful theads, but I'm still a little overwhelmed when it comes to choosing a visa that's right for me! I'm posting this thread to ask you for some advice. There's so many migration schemes to choose from!

I'm currently an American university student and will be graduating in June with a degree in Accounting. As a new graduate, I obviously won't have the work experience needed for a GSM 175. I could stay here and gain work experience for a year, but I'm just SO ready to try something new! Do I need work experience for regional sponsorship with GSM 475? I'm almost thinking a WHV would be the best way to go. I wouldn't mind working on a farm for 3 months or so and eventually find work with which I could use my degree, but how likely is it that I will find a entry level accounting position on a WHV? Also, after a WHV expires are you able to apply for another 12 month WHV? Is it unheard of to gain PR by first starting with a WHV? Thanks for the help!

You're probably right in going for a WHV but unfortunately the US ones do not have the do three months regional work and be eligible for a second provision and there are some restrictions re applying for skilled visas while in Australia.
The 475 does require experience - Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) Visa (Subclass 475)
You ought to consider looking for work wherever you can get it while on the WHV and a fter a few months if there's mutual satisfaction discuss an employer sponsorship with the employer and that may mean taking a trip outside of Australia if there is a restriction on those too but it is possible that there'll not be because of they being TR and they can lead to PR sponsorship or you just apply for an independent skilled visa once you get the 12 months up and are on the 457 rather than the WHV.
Be a great help to finding work while on the WHV if you already have some experience and get your qualifications assessed by Australian authorities.
They are changing the eligibility assessment criteria next year so check that out on the What's New Link on above page.
