Hi, I'm a Locksmith in the UK been to Oz twice now and just came back from 3 week visit to my sisters in Melbourne. We really want to emigrate but have hit a brick wall because there is no NVQ for my trade in the UK, but Australian locksmiths have to have an AQF 3 certificate. I have my own business and have been a general locksmith for 6 years, could anybody give some advice please. Cheers Dave

Depending on your levels of turnover etc, you could apply for a business visa. Turnover levels are prety high, even for a state sponsored one....but if you meet the financial criteria, you could go down that road, regardless of your trade I believe! You could then start your own locksmith company out there!
