Name: Brian and Angela Bear
Country of Origin: South Africa / United Kingdom
Visa Services: Employer Nomination Scheme ‘Exceptional Appointment’ (Age)
The Bear family was sponsored to Australia on a Temporary Business Long Stay (Subclass 457) visa, so that Brian could undertake employment as a Fitter tradesperson. They approached Gold Coast Migration to seek advice to apply for Australian Permanent Residence. After carefully assessing both Angela and Brian’s personal and employment circumstances, we advised them that their best prospect for success was to apply for approval of an Employer Nomination Scheme, on the basis of Angela’s employment as Case Worker, despite being over the age limit. We worked with and Angela and her nominating employer to put together a compelling case for approval under ‘exceptional circumstances’, which was approved just a few months later.
Q: Why did you decide to use a migration agent?
“We decided to use a migration agent as we wanted to make sure that we had every opportunity of success in our application for Permanent Residence. We had ‘exceptional circumstances’ with both my husband and myself being over the age of limit and so, spoke to a number of agents, until we were satisfied that we had the chosen right one.”
Q: What was your experience?
“Our experience with Gold Coast Migration was extremely positive. The communication from our advisor was exceptional. We were kept informed at every turn through emails, phone calls and even text messages. The advisor made us fees like we were his top priority.”
Q: How has your life changed since you received notification of your visa approval?
“Since receiving our Permanent Residence, we have settled down so much. My husband said that time has slowed down for him; the stress of wondering and waiting to find out if we would be accepted for PR has all gone. Life is stress free and ‘barbie’ filled. We are now looking forward to purchasing our own property and getting animals to fill up our lives. We are so excited about the future and getting Citizenship.”
Q: How did you hear about us?
“I saw Gold Coast Migration advertised on Facebook and immediately called up. The agent was so knowledgeable and filled me with hope, listing our options we could pursue for Australian Permanent Residence.”
Q: Would you recommend our services?
“I would highly recommend Gold Coast Migration’s services to – especially, those out there who have ‘exceptional circumstances’ or who aren’t sure where to start. The system can seem very complex and without Industry Migration, I don’t believe we would have obtained our Australian Permanent Residence.”}
