Belgian nurse looking for sponsorship
My name is Lisa and I'm a 25 year old nurse from Belgium. I've already been to Australia on a WHV and had the best time. Thats already more than 2 years ago.
My heart is still in Australia and I would like to go back and work and live there for a couple years.
I'm a nurse , so it's a job that's highly in demand, I can get my own visa but that would cost me more than 15k and that's something I don't have.
So I was hoping there would be a chance that an institution/hospital would sponsor me.
Anyone experience with this or tips for me?
Thank you in advance!
Hi Lisa and welcome to our community. ?
Your right about nursing being a popular option and there are a number of roles currently being advertised in our sponsored job section.
Firstly, I recommend you register a job alert for the term 'nurse' so we can alert you as soon as a job becomes available.
With regards to costs for PR. $15k sounds expensive (I assume this would be via an agent)?
The current Visa cost for a 189 independent visa is just over $4k AUD. Have you considered registering an EOI and applying without the assistance of a migration agent?
All the best
Thank you for the reply.
I registered a job alert and hopefully something will come out soon!
The main cost is a bridging course (3 months) that's mandatory these days and it costs about 15.000 AUD apparently.
So I was hoping that if I could find a sponsored job, they would sponsor this course. What do you think?
Ahhhh. Ok, Lisa. Yes, that makes more sense. I'd not accounted for the course. $15k for three months! Someone is making a lot of money our of this process!! ?
