Hey all, we r waitin for my husband 38 yrs old joiner/carpenter to sit his EILTS test on 25/08/2012 to meet 60 points so we can submit his TRA skills assessment then EOI. I have couple of questions.
Q1: do work references for tra need to b certified by soliciter or is employer signiture enough?
Q2: are work references payslips n personal statement and cv enough evidance along with application form for tra assessment
Q3: is this the order if plain sailing. Submit IELTS test results in with tra application with above evidance wait on tra result thensubmit EOI wait for invitation then submit 189 visa wait to b granted then move to the wonderful country of australia?
Q4: last question honest. We dont want to b sponsored so can you knock back any company that looks at your EOI? Husband has friend who is going to set him up with job.
Your replies would b very much appriciated xxxx
there is a "Points score spread of EOIs by visa type" chart in page 1 of "Skill select activity summary July 2012". does anybody know how can I interpret this chart? by conventional method, just drawing a vertical line on each point and finding the corresponding number gives some confusing numbers : A) the sum of al 189 submitted EOIs by this method is around 3250 while the mentioned number in this very page is 2176 for the same period. B) the breaks in the curve line happens in a point between two score on not exactly on a point. why ?
Sorry, but what is a EOI ???

My husband is currently filling out the Victroia University stills assesment form and portifiopicturs etc, so we are still quite away for the EOI process, but my husbands turns 40 in August 2013 does this mean that the visa etc has to be grated by this date or is it the date that the EOI etc was lodged?
I received the Assessment from engineers Australia for claiming assessment for professional engineer. Im a telecommunications engineer with a work experience of more than 5 years. The assessment report mentions as standing for a Professional Engineer (skill level 1). What is the meaning of this skill level 1? does it imply any specific applications only?
I have a total points of 55 when it comes to 189 class visa(independent) and 60 points for 190 ( sponsored). My IELTS score is 6.5 for the listening part, the only score below 7 hence i cannot claim the extra 10 points for IELTS 7 band. Could anyone advice me whether I should go for the state sponsorship or redo my IELTS so that i can claim 10 points for it and make my points score to 65 for the 189 class visa (independent)
It would be a great help if anyone could advice regarding this.
