  1. Thanks a lot again AussieDude.
  2. Hello Everyone, I have recently applied for the Australian work visa 476 and submitted all the documents that I could until now for me and my wife. However, we are facing a lot of concerns regarding the Form 80. It seems to me to be an immigration form. But this is an 18 month work visa. I saw a video from a consultant on youtube providing guidelines for filling this form and he says that we wouldnt be receiving this form from them if we are applying for a temporary visa. The form is straight forward but confusing at the same time and given both me and my wife have a rich travel history with plenty of addresses and experiences to share, I dont know whether it is worth the effort or not. So I would like to ask the question as to whether this form is a compulsory requirement for visa 476 or not? Thank you.

    Passport holding time for 476

    Thanks a lot AusieDude, You have been a great help. I had applied while remaining in Pakistan because I did not want to delay any longer. But now, I am in China, I recently arrived, I will update to them my new address now. This being an online visa was a great news for me.
  4. Hi, I am a graduate from a Washington Accord accredited Pakistani University. I am planning to apply Australian visa 476 and for that, I have gathered all the requirements. Now, I only need to apply. My wife is a Chinese. She will be included in my application and until just a few days ago, she was living with me in Pakistan but had to move back due to her mother being sick. I am also planning to go to China and apply from there. Can I apply from China instead of Pakistan? If I can then after how much time of filing the online application do Australia require us to submit the hard copy of the passport and for how long at average do they keep it until returning it with visa sticker? On the home ministry website, they have only given estimated times for visa processing but I am rather interested in when will my passport be taken and for how long?

    Can startup a company on 476

    Hi, Thanks a lot for your reply in this regard. After 18 months, I think I will be able to obtain the 188 visa under Entrepreneurship stream.

    Can startup a company on 476

    Hi and thanks for your feedback. Yes my institute is Washington accord accredited and also PEC accredited. Infact my university was the first one to gain accredition from Washington accord in the whole country and lots of my seniors have already reached Australia successfully on 476. But all of them were job centric. I am an Entrepreneur. And therefore I would like to go for a startup. Particularly in Adelaide. I would really appreciate if you could guide me about whether I am allowed to setup a company in Australia on 476 or not. Thank you
  7. Hi, I am a recent graduate from an accredited Engineering Institute from Pakistan. I have a startup idea which I would like to form into a company and get it incubated in Australia. Can I do that on my 476 visa? Will 476 allow me to do business in Australia as an Entrepreneur or am I only allowed to do work in some existing Australian Enterprise. Thank you
