I am posting this topic for my own reference, since I am having hard time to search the forums. I hope somebody can enlighten me and attach a few links regarding my questions.
I am currently at processing stage for my job as a Chef in Sydney, Australia using a 457 Visa. I am totally confident on my Skills Assessment / TRA by 1st week of April 2016. Hopefully, everything will go well.
As this opportunity open at me, I didn't think twice but to grab it with risk.
Moreover, before this opportunity comes, I already planned for my soon to be wife and 2yrs old daughter in Philippines. However, everything was changed. btw, i'll have my wedding by 1st week of April 2016 before this opportunity arrived.
Employer, asking to me to mobilize by September 2016. he also suggested that I should go first and settle down in Sydney before i'll bring in my wife and daughter. do you agree?
Do I need to include them on the visa applicaton as a 457 holder? or is't better to process it after a while (settle down in Sydney). What if the employer said, "It's better for us and process will be faster if for the meantime, we will process only your application and visa. afterwards, we can work out for your family" is this okay as well?
as I look in the other topic in the forum, regarding 457 Visa, do you need to be married first by at least ONE year to be approved as dependent? we been living together for 3yrs with my relatives (family), since ito ang uso ditto sa Philippines, hehe.. regarding evidence, I will use the proof of billing of my parents regarding this matter.
If ever I will be blessed and be relocated at Sydney regarding my timetable of September 2016, I am planning to bring them in before my Daughter's 3rd Birthday by March 2017. in line with this, Is 6 months is enough to save money for my family start up by March 2017? providing that I am willing to save a lot and sell some of the investment in Manila, like cars. otherwise, at least how much do I need for me to relocate including the apartment?
Guys, maraming salamat po.
I am looking forward to hear from you soon and can enlighten me regarding living in Sydney.
thank you so much
