  1. Hi all I've been told you've had some hail down there.

    Save you from going to the friuge for ice cudes :LOL:

    It's cold wet and very very windy up here :cry:

    Need some help, I'm looking for welding jobs in the south west (near Phillps Island :wink: would be good)

    I'm thinking of comeing over permantly but I've been told it's easyer if I can get a business to sponser me.

    It looks like I'll do a 1 year visa first and then ......well I don't know

    Can you guy and girls help me out please. :D
  2. Hey, this is Melbourne - we get the proverbial 4 seasons in one day!

    Hopefully someone will be able to help you out. IIRC there's a shortage of qualified welders here at present, so fingers crossed.
  3. depends on your age,

    if you are under 30 you can get a 1 year working holiday visa (50 quid from memory) and seek sponsorship while you are over here.

    that is how i got my sponsorship (3 years) and at the end of this year i will apply for permanent residency

    if you are over 30 i would think you would have to be sponsored to come over though.
  4. Migration to australia is not easy (though I doubt it is any more difficult then elsewhere). Being a welder you already have one strength because welding is given the highest rating on the skilled occupation list (meaning Australia is short...)

    Check out http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/books6.htm for skilled migration requirements. It has a link to the skilled occupations list on it, as well as a book describing all the hurdles that you would have to go through to apply.
  5. Cool it's looking a bit easyer than I thought (which is cool :D )

    I don't serpose there's any MD's on this sight that could be looking for a welder or two?

    Hay you never know if you don't ask :LOL:
