    Thanks again Cal,
    Im kind of umm,ing and arr,ing about posting a string or questions about the new visa points situation but holding off till new list is out,
    just hope they dont downgrade my skill to much, ( plumber/gas fitter)
    alot of nervous applicants out there at the mo i guess.
    Also been trying to find where to watch wdu, your episode, would be good to put a face to the name.
    any tips?

    Hi Kev

    Welcome to BiB. As Cal says......ask away and someone should be able to answer your questions or at least point you in the right direction.

    Brissy is a fabulous place to live. I wake up each day and wonder how I got so lucky!

    Hope things work out for you, so you can move over as soon as possible!

    Your occupation sure has it hard over here with the licencing,, do as much research as you can prior to coming so you know what awaits you.

    Not sure about watching WDU, can you get it on BBC IPlayer?

    Hey Cal

    Yes have seen i got a fair bit of bridging training to do if i get that far, have heard it's 8 months at college no matter what skills you bring with you.
    guess i wont be able to work for a while, will almost be like an 8 month holiday, how will i cope ;))
    ( kev adds jet ski to shopping list ) oh well, never expected it ALL to be fun fun fun lol.

    I have got one gripe tho, about the fee's my agent is charging, am sure by comparison im being well and truly ripped off, was going to post a thread about changing agents at some point but almost to embarrassed to air it.
    All the best

    Thanks for the welcome.
    It is so helpful to know advice is always on hand, You cant beat experience.
    Also good to have ears out there willing to listen to my bitchin and moaning that is sure to come.
    Dont think my marrage would stand up to it lol

    You should be able to get a job before your licence come through, the last 2 plumbers ive known have.(sorry for bursting the bubble,lol) You just cant work unaccompanied.

    Agents fees vary,also bear in mind when some people quote their agents fee they arent including the skills recognition or actual visa application fee.
    However if you still think your paying way over the top it is possibe to change agents and if your serious about doing so let me know and i will get you the info on what to do.
