I never thought the visa would make a difference until I actually saw all this happen. Believe me I was gobsmacked when he was getting all these interviews.
i can understand the reason why an employer wouldn't employ someone with a temporary visa, it seems logical unfortunately but all we can do is hope for the best.

The purpose of the pmv is to come and get married and then apply for a 820 onshore.

Exactly. Unfortunately if you don't live in a capital city it will probably also be harder because not as many jobs to apply for.

Luckily you live in a capital city .

It is also the luck of the draw too.

Also Albania is on the high risk country list, so you should be careful with your plans - it might take 9 months to get your visa granted but it might also take much longer due to security checks.

we have already contacted a registered agent here in Greece and he was the one who said to me that going through a skilled visa could take up to 2 years. We are waiting for an email from him with some details about what our options are.

Don't know really, just trying to find the best possible way for this to work, just hope that our 9-10 month time frame is enough to get all this sorted out.

thanks, we didn't know that.

She has been living in Greece since the age of 10 so hopefully that might give us some points..

PMV is probably the right one for us.
If everything goes well, come to Australia, marry asap and apply for the 820. Seems like the right way i guess..

Not sure what the processing time is in Greece but most of Europe now seems to be 10-14 months now.

My partner couldn't get into his field of work on a 820 visa so we have had to return to the UK - having the 820 has not helped us at all unfortunately.

I think everyone has different experiences...so long as your happy just working in something she will be fine

I am sorry to hear that . My husband got really lucky. There was this one place he wanted to work at since he got here and he recently got a job there and a different position than what he had experience in, in his home country. I guess they saw his potential. We were surprised and happy! Maybe applying for all the jobs the company advertised help .

Sometimes it can also be the field. I have heard law and Accounting are the 2 hard ones for foreigners to get a job in Australia without Australian work experience.

Will you get a UK visa now?
