Visa Advice - Sponsored Employment Visa

New Topic Newest First

Hi,

I'm looking to find employment and gain a TSS visa (1-5 years max is the current plan). My husband would be considered as a dependent (we can financially support ourselves), until he finds employment and also applies for a work visa.

Can anyone advise how easy this typically is to get accepted and how long the process normally takes from receiving a job offer to being in-country and starting work?

Thanks!
