Tentmaking is an occupation that was in great demand around the 10th century. People, especially in the east, used tent as a dwelling. As families and individuals migrate and travel to another location by foot, they bring with them portable tents. Most of them learn the business and trade of tentmaking for their advantage and to help others while earning income for themselves. Tentmakers either make or mend these shelters made of goats’ hair cloth similar to builders, carpenters and other tradesmen building and maintaining houses in our generation.
Australia has great demand for people whose resources and skills will be beneficial to the nation to burgeon and be dynamic. Tentmakers are the modern day business-, trade- or occupation-skilled migrants, students and travelers that Australia is primarily looking for.
Tentmakers Migration Assistance (TentMA) will assist modern day tentmakers as they secure legal visas to travel and live in Australia. This includes providing state or job sponsorship to eligible applicants. Our services include assisting their family members, partners aspiring to join thousands of migrants (over 1.02 million migrants applied for Australian visa in 2012, as per DIBP Statistics) each year get their visa and experience Australia. Furthermore, we offer settlement services such as meet and greet, on-arrival accommodation, information sessions and network support groups that can help them gain momentum while establishing themselves in their new country.
