Default Relative wanting to move to Oz....

Well having been living here for over 4 years, I now have my cousin who wants to move out and join us...

Now here goes he is a factory worker with no (how do I put this) paper work for skills Ie can do lots of jobs but no certificates as such.

He has 3 kids and a partner who works at a care home he is 36 she is 28 ish..

What are there options in getting into Australia??

Can anyone help??

Cheers in advance Gerry.

I would say that it is near impossible for your cousin to migrate here because migration is fully dependent on having skills that are in demand. Without any formal skills or qualification, he will not be able to get a skilled migrants visa nor would an employer be able to sponsor him in an unskilled job.

He could come to study but that would cost him an arm and a leg in international fees. Similarly, he could study back home but there is no guarantee that his occupation would be on the SOL list by the time he completes his studies.
There are business visas available as well but requires a significant investment and he would need to have a business that he could move here or demonstrate that he is a successful businessman.

Does his partner have any skills or qualifications? They should look at the SOL list and see if there is anything on there that closely matches what they do and then take it from there.

A lot of agents also offer a free initial consultation, so again they could have a chat with an agent to explore their options further.

Unfortunately, you cannot sponsor them unless they have a skill that is on the SOL list. Similarly, you cannot just make up a job to get them over here as that would also get you into trouble.

They are still young, so if your cousin is a jack of all trade, he could take some courses in a trade that is in demand, get a few years until his belt and then try again in a few years. The SOL list is updated every year, so whilst this year aged care may not be on the list, it could be added in the years to come. His partner could use the time to get some formal qualifications, which for the purposes of migration, greatly helps in terms of scoring enough points to meet the minimum requirement.

But as I said, they should speak to a migration agent as he might be aware of other options that could assist them. Sometimes, there are closely related occupations on the SOL list which could offer a life line.
