I have an application for 309/100 pending (made in late May) but no current Australia visa.
I have had an invitation to attend and speak at a conference in Australia in a couple of months (relevant to work there once we migrate).
Any view on what would be a suitable visa for me to enter Australia while my 309 application is pending (I have not had any RFI or similar and still have my medical to do, so do not anticipate getting my 309 in time to travel on it for the conference ) - I don't want any visa application I make to enter temporarily just now to mess up my 309 application?
Hi Richard Gregan
Is this still the case?
I have applied for my visa and had a response from a CO. They are asking for proof of overseas qualifications/trade certs, I had put my OTSR in as evidence as I didnt do a 'recognised' apprenticeship and don't have an NVQ, I have ACS gas certificates and 17 years experience. Now I'm panicking as I think I may have misunderstood the requirements or input the OTSR incorrectly in the EOI?
any help would be appreciated.
Hi everyone !
It’s been a wonderful day for me. I got a phone call from my Agency saying that my 186 visa is granted today. I’ve been a silent reader and check this forum every single day for the last few months. I know that we all have to go through a tough time here with visas. What I am trying to say is that we have to keep faith and keep moving. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Wish you all best of luck!
