I have just started looking into applying for a 176 Visa for Aus. I am a Gas Fitter and will need to apply to TRA to get my Trade certificate and also I will need to apply for State Sponsorship to get the 65 Points, problem is I am 40 in 5 months time. When I hit 40 I will loose 10 points and wont be able to apply. Is 5 months enough time to TRA Certifictae and State Sponsorship and also apply for visa. Any advice appreciated.
