  3. I don't think so unless ur IT or some technical professional that to very few in 187 visa we all are waiting for at 10-15 months
  4. Just read there is a 40,000 nurse shortage in the UK, I understand the politics behind this. Maybe more will be looking East instead of West? I know we have gone off topic but what I would say is the Indians that I have met in Australia have been and are awesome. Real family people and take pride in their work, I get that they don't always get the rub of the green that Poms may get in terms of job opportunities (unless they're doctors!) but I'd rather have a family with this type of attitude and ethos live next to me than most others that you see around.
  5. Anyone got rsms pr in 6 to 8 months????

  7. Good Luck! 15 corrects are enough, not stressful.
  8. Many Thanks
  9. it's an online summary, hope it is useful for you. ps, it's a Chinese webpage, but pls directly scroll down to English questions.
  10. it looks that pdf book is 80 pages. I did the practice test and saw the videos. No time to read the text
  11. actually, they are same. Good luck!
  12. Until when can australia sustain mass incoming migration?
  13. I managed to book test tomorrow. For prep, the videos on the website are sufficient or I should read the pdf book as well?
  14. Halfway through my Australian Financial advisor licence and now have to almost entirely re-learn 25% of the course. Quite annoying! I'll watch this video on a loop for the next few weeks until it sinks in.
  15. In theory if you had the paperwork and it proved the UPP should be more than 8% you could claim the higher amount - but I've not heard of anyone being able to do that.
  16. It may also be worth mentioning it's a free fee transaction if you use moneycorp and are a forum member, also they will usually price match
  17. Thanks guys - glad to hear this is an option! @BritChickx - that must have been a lot of dollarydoos down the toilet - partner visa is expensive!
  18. Sorry it was my impression from what you wrote that you felt "hard done by" - but then that is how most of us feel. Just paying taxes is of course different from paying into a Pension scheme - but Pension schemes aren't affected by the freeze only the old age pension. The old age pension is purely funded by taxes (although there's a lot of confusion caused by one of those taxes being called "National Insurance" so many people are fooled into believing it's not tax).
  19. Yes that's correct. I went through this process myself... entered on a tourist visa and then applied onshore. Was given a bridging visa. I didn't get my visa granted though as i returned to the UK but that's another issue haha.
  20. Yes, that is correct. The Bridging visa associated with the lodged partner application has no conditions once in effect. This means the holder can work or study. Hope this helps. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  21. I thought it was a 2 year period for doctors but the rules change all the time. The bigger issue would be finding a job in the metro area. There is no shortage of GPs, not surprising as the medical system is world class and the lifestyle is great.
  22. Meant to say, we flew Qatar last year. I have been a regular flyer with over 1 million miles flown with Emirates and I was reasonably impressed. I think their economy class is better than Emirates
  23. I hope your right but im sure many of us would have heard about it also.
  24. Where did you hear this?
  25. The elephant in the room? Should always be the best man for the job wherever they come from but that is not always allowed these days.
