Gillis family

The Gillis family plan on emigrating to
Perth in 2012.
 

With another Australian visa application granted, we've received another testimonial come through from a satisfied client.

Angela and Mick Gillis had their State Sponsored (subclass 176) visa granted in early June on the basis of Mick's experience in the plastering trade. They're now planning on moving to Perth in early 2012.

They had Matt Parker as their caseworker and passed on the following message to share what their plans are and how their Visa Bureau experience was:

"We're still buzzing from Matt ringing us on Friday with the news! I've attached a photo of Mick, Myself and Chloe in Perth last April - we went for three weeks and ended up staying seven because of the ash cloud.

Perth is where we will be settling. Mick's been in the plastering trade for 29 years so it's his skill we're going on. We will be staying with Mick's cousin for a little while in Kalamunda until we find somewhere to rent. We just need to sell our house in England - once it's sold (hopefully after Christmas) we will make the move Down Under and start our new adventure.

The hardest part for us is going to be missing the family. Our oldest daughter Lyndsey is coming out next October to get married though, so that will be something to look forward too.

Our advice to anyone thinking of doing this is go for it and we would definitely recommend you go through the Visa Bureau as we could not have done it without them. From beginning to end, they help you every step of the way and are only a phone call away. Everyone involved did a fantastic job and especially our caseworker, Matt Parker; he was fantastic and we can't praise him enough for all his help and hard work. So next year, instead of saying hello, we'll be saying g'day!"

If you've recently used the Australian Visa Bureau to emigrate to Australia and would like to get in touch, we'd love to hear from you! Just send an email directly to your caseworker or send it through to us using the contact form and we'll be in touch shortly to gather more information from you.
