emigrate to Australia age 50+

11 May 2016 by News Desk

Richard and Sandra wanted to emigrate to Australia but were over the age limit. But their experience proves you should never give up on your dream of a new life down under.

emigrate to Australia age 50+To emigrate to Australia you must be 100% committed. “If you get involved half-halfheartedly you will fail. We thought it’d be easy – it wasn’t and we needed expert help,” says Richard, a qualified electrician.

They contacted migration agents saying they wanted to emigrate to Australia but were told, ‘forget it, you’re too old’.

“Because of our age we were sure we’d never qualify. Then we found thinkingaustralia and it has changed our life,” says Sandra. “They walked the extra mile for us. They were the only people who said ‘yes, if you really want Australia we can help you to get there. And they delivered!”

Richard and Sandra gained permission to emigrate to Australia age 50+ and are now living and working in Sydney having been granted an Employer Sponsored Visa.

“An employer sponsored visa is now one of the most preferred routes to living and working down under,” says Darrell Todd, founder of thinkingaustralia. But it should be noted, with the new age limit of 45, it requires caution in ‘ assessing ‘ of anyone of this new age amendment limit of 2017.

“It can take time to arrange and employers are often unaware of the scheme or what is required. This is where the help and guidance of experts is both needed and pays dividends.”

Sandra: “You must be prepared to be flexible and do whatever is necessary. The applicant is rarely in full control of the process so we’d strongly advise people to get professional help.”

Richard: “The process can be complex and daunting. If we’d tried to do it all ourselves we could not have succeeded.”

Sandra: “There are so many different visas, and so many different routes to migration, you need someone to tell you what’s right for you. We could never have achieved our dream of Australia, if it wasn’t for thinkingaustralia.

Richard: “In the time it took to get our visa the migration rules changed three or four times. We could never have sorted all that out on our own, it would have been impossible. Without the help and support of Darrell Todd and thinkingaustralia we would have given up.”

Sandra: “Because we were over the age limit there were many times when we were convinced that we would never get to emigrate to Australia. But thinkingaustralia kept us going, encouraged us, guided our application through the process – and we succeeded in gaining our visas.”
