    • Did you manage to lodge your application Arthur?
      Queensland re-opened it’s business program but has since closed again. It is certainly the fastest growing state for business visas in terms of year of YOY growth. I also hope you used an Australian Registered Agent as their fees would be a fraction of the cost mentioned and have to abide by a very strict code of conduct. Well worth the expense. Good luck
    • It sounds as if maybe the Wearehappyfamily have maybe gone cold on the idea.What I would say as a Registered Migration Agent is that you would be well advised to look at individual State Government Requirements. While the investment requirement at a State Government is set, each individual State may have their own requirements for them to nominate you through an EOI. Also, these visas are on very high demand so it is possible your points test score may need to be higher than the minimum 65. Finally, check your preferred State is still open for EOIs. One state has already met its allocation and is closed to new applications.
    • Hi all, i am  giving this one last shot, as i am giving up hope in trying to find the answer.    Firstly, I am looking to find out if anyone is facing the same issue and what has been done to rectify it.   In a nutshell, i have received an invite to apply for the 190 as a plumber. My deadline to apply is 11th feb. due to the changes on November 16th  i was able to claim 5 additional points on the eoi as my wife holds a UK passport. however, when filling out the 190 application form there is no where to log these points into the system other than attaching a copy of her passport. if you go onto the DHA website and look at the points table it states that these points are claimed under the PARTNER SKILLS section. on the application form is gives you the option to select (under partner skills) "yes" but then it doesn't give you  the option to claim the 5???  Your spouse or de facto partner must also be an applicant for this visa and has competent English

      For you to be eligible for the award of these points your partner must be an applicant for the same visa subclass and must not be an Australian permanent resident or an Australian citizen.   All im looking for is some direction on where to go with this. i am already using an agent and they are also trying to get clarification on this matter but time is running out. i have spoken to SA immigration - could not help as the DHA deal with the visas.  i have spoken to the DHA several times and they cannot help with filling out the visa. - they said to fill out an immi technical support form but this has been done weeks ago and no response. its almost like they have applied the changes and have not updated the application form! im guessing that this could also be an issue for the other visas also?   PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!!!!   THANK YOU     
    • Hi Hope this is the right thread (sorry Im new). I am the assurance of support for my Mum who is back in the UK. i have just compelted this part and have a acceptance letter from Centrelink (let me know if anyone needs any info on this fun process!). Once this is done does anyone know how long the next steps are and what they entail eg when do they ask for the next installment? Thanks! Lisa
