Default Infomation required on taxes/ work permit visa

Dear All,

Its very pleasant to see that on expat forum, people are helping and assisting each other to help the community members. I have following questions and will be glad if someone can answer me with details.

I have been offered a job in oil and gas industry where i will work for 2 weeks, and will avail 2 weeks off at Australia

The job offer can be either for Adelide or Brisbine according to my choice, and they are offering me around 115000/annum AUD with 9% Superannuation.

My questions are:

1. What will be the tax i have to pay. (there are several calculator available online) but all of them give different statistics. I will be getting work permit visa for Australia.

2. My spouse is coming with me, will she be able to work at Australia ?

3. Is it good salary for Adelaide or for Brisbine for a family of 3.

4. If i come on work permitt visa and work there for 3,4 years can i apply for permanent residency?

5. Which city i should prefer Adelaide or Brisbine in terms of living cost and for low crime rate, as i will be on the fields for 2 weeks, so my spouse will be alone over there, so definately i need to make sure that she do not face any problem if she is alone.

Looking forward to hear answer from experts.

Regards
Islamabad guy

Hi islamabadguy,

the answers to your questions depend on what visa your prospective employer sponsors you on . Read up on the 457 (temporary employer sponsored) visa and the ENS (permanent visa).

The 457 is a temporary visa and your employer can sponsor you towards permanent residency (PR) after you stayed with them for a couple of years. Note that the employer has no obligation to sponsor you towards permanent residency, even if you fulfill all requirements. That can be a bottleneck for many expats.

The ENS is a permanent visa. It is a possible follow-up for 457 visa holders (if the employer chooses to sponsor them) but there is also a Direct Entry stream. More information: Booklet 5 and SkillSelect page.

Finally, you should also consider getting PR via a skilled migration visa (189/190/489). See SkillSelect. With one of these you are completely independent from your employer and can switch jobs whenever you want.

115,000AUD is a good salary and you should be able to live comfortably with that. I've never lived in Adelaide or Brisbane, so I cannot give you any advice regarding location. Generally speaking, crime rates in Australia are low but you should research the different suburbs before you move to make sure your wife and child feel comfortable. Do you want a garden or not? Would your wife prefer a quieter/greener village-y neighborhood with the downside that she might have to use the car a lot or is an apartment in the city more to her liking? What are her hobbies/interests? When we looked at suburbs in Sydney, we definitely noticed that some communities catered to young families (play dates at the local library, pre- and post-pregnancy yoga classes, bike "libraries" etc.) and others to young professionals (many bars, gyms, massage studios, art galleries). Maybe your employer can arrange a temporary accommodation for the first 1-2 months and then you can get to know the neighborhood before you get a permanent flat. Your wife can work as secondary applicant on all the above visas.

Cheerio,
Monika

@islamabadguy,

Are you an oil/gas professional or have done some crane/heavy truck work at all? Or you just got a mail out of the blue?

If you have not applied for this job then it may be a scam. You may try to post few lines for the mail here.
