Hi, we are looking at relocating to the perth area but have no idea where to start. we will hopefully be migrating on a skilled visa as my hubby is a fully qualified joiner/carpenter and we have been running a small kitchen and joinery manufacturers for some time now. we have 2 boys 4 and 9 months, so obviously being in the region of a good state school is a must. how long does the process of a visa application take or is that a case of how long is a piece of string. does anybody know of a good migration agent that could help.

What part of the world are you in as there is no point of telling you a visa agent in Ireland if you are in England. Our application took 7 months but that was in 2006/2007

we did our own to get here, but my Mum and Dad are using Visa Go or is it Visa and Co? anyway they have been superb, they are in Scotland, but as you dont need to visit the agent its not a problem sending your documents registered post to their address anyway. Good Luck Pauline

We used OE Visas in Glasgow. (Not sure the location of the agent matters as we are in Essex.) They were fab as you can see from me BLOG we started the process in January, lodged our visa at the end of April and had our visa granted this week. They have been efficient in making sure we had all paperwork in place before our visa was lodged so it would go through as quickly as possible without any hicups along the way. They have also been really helpful from start to finish and answered all my questions and queries quickly. We were also able to pay monthly, which was a real bonus and at no extra cost. If you need any more info let me know. Good luck

Hi we are currently using Concept Australia (Manchester office).. They have been really good... to be honest they kind of 'hold your hand' throughout the process which is reassuring. Marie-Louise & Russ

Hi I did our TRA trade recognition and visa application myself. It was all very easy. I have no idea how much an agent charges but it is quite simple and you can get all the forms off the Australian immigration website. All the best Debbie

Hi, We are using visa-go, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Thay have been fantastic, thay are always there for you. Darren (agent) was in Italy last week and he was still emailing back and forward to us. As my better half has got his date for his practical test (motor mechanic). We weren't expecting to hear so quick as we just sent our paperwork away at the begining of June. There payment scheme is great too, you pay over 5 months for there fee. Hope this helps. Sharon
