Upon hearing the news our company was to employ an engineer from overseas to maintain one of our helicopters in support of bushfire season and beyond, we were a little overwhelmed faced with having to organise a Subclass 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa within a short time frame of two months. Not only that, we also had to apply for a Standard Business Sponsorship Approval, and a Nomination Approval to nominate the skilled worker. After researching the requirements, we decided to enlist the help of Phillip Silver & Associates and were paired with Simar Hermis who offered to meet us for a free face-to-face consultation at our office. That first meeting was extremely helpful and Simar provided all the information we needed, as well as accurate quotations for all costs involved in the process.
It was an easy decision to enlist Simar to help us with the applications. As we needed to lodge the three applications simultaneously, Simar provided us with clear checklists to follow and we were able to gather the information and complete the applications quite quickly. Once Simar had collated the information and presented our applications to us we consented to the lodgement, and also put in a request to expedite the approvals. I was amazed with how swiftly the whole process went, as we were granted our approvals in two days! Without the professional help of Simar and the team at Phillip Silver & Associates, this process may have taken us up to four months so we are extremely grateful for the exceptional result!
In addition, Simar has offered to follow through this application by meeting with us when the new employee arrives to discuss appropriate ways to ensure the business continues to meet its obligations in respect to the grants. The service provided by Simar has gone above and beyond my expectations and has made a potentially stressful application process feel very simple and positive. I would be happy to use Simar for any future requirements.
