Closely following the 189 visa class for those looking to emigrate to Australia from South Africa is the 190. The 190 Visa subclass has an element of state nomination and requires that South African holders of this visa live and work in the nominating state for a period of two years.

There is so much work here in Australia. I was worried about getting work once I got here. I should not have been. I've been busy since I arrived 4 years ago. Electricians are needed over here. The guys at Lets Go were great, helped me through all the paperwork involved, sorted out a problem I had with documentation, drafted applications for me and helped me get work. All went well. I got through my Australian context course fast and it was easy. Moving to Brisbane was the right move for me.

My brother went to Australia with Let's Go as an Electrician 3 years ago, and I just got accepted as a welder. I'll be moving in with him in Perth. Let's go has been easy to deal with and took care of everything. Tidy result for us.


Thanks for helping my family get PR in Australia. We're getting out of cape town just at the right time. I didn't think it was possible until you guys stepped in and helped us every step of the way

David just got accepted !! We are going to AUSTRALIA !! So Happy. Thanks Let's Go you have been Amazing. SO EXCITED. Can't wait I hope Australia has work for one more Mechanic...becuase we are on our way 🙂 🙂 🙂 .

These guys were great. Another company told me I would qualify for the visa but Lets Go explained I didn't have enough years experience as a plumber. But they did not stop, my wife is a nurse and they worked out that she has got enough experience and a profession Australia wants and so we are applying under her. If i had gone with the other company I would have been rejected and wasted my money. We have been accepted by Australia and are on our way in 11 weeks time. I will be able to get my trade assessed once we arrive in Australia as by then I will have had enough experience and I'll be qualified in Australia also. Thanks from Julia and me.

I'm halfway through the process. I have passed my Skills Assessment as an Electrician and it's happened faster than I'd expected. We are wanting to move to Perth once we through the process. It has all been handled by the guys at Let's Go Global and it's been a really smooth process. I'm engaged now and my fiance and I can't wait to get to Perth and start our family in Australia.

Best thing we ever did. Boyfriend (now husband) and I moved to Australia 2 years ago. We have already put down a deposit on a house (and got a loan from the bank here no problems) and Sam is starting up his own electrical contracting company. I've been working at a real estate office as a receptionist and loving it. Thanks to the team at Lets Go. It took about 10 months from when we started to when we got accepted by Australia. Nervous time but all came through as we were told.

Welder, in Australia already living in Melbourne. Best thing I ever did. Life here is incredible. Wish I had not waited so long.

Let's go Global got me to Australia. I can't thank them enough. I didn't even realise I could emigrate as a chef, but I could. Brilliant. I hope to get my sister out here too, she has started going through the process with Let's go now, she is a nurse. Would love to bring my whole family out eventually. It's been great.

Yes the guys at Let's Go Global were good. Got the result. No Fuss. Now Building in South Sydney. I agree that there is plenty of work here.

Great Service

Thanks for helping us get to Australia me and the kids are very grateful after the tragic murder of my wife last year. You have been a godsend in this whole process and the kids are looking forward to leaving this terrible past behind them and opening up a new chapter in their young lives. I highly commend these folks and their approach to client service in difficult circumstances.
