    Getting married back in England...

    By the way, the best bristol wedding photographer is by the link. Last fall I got married and the venue that we got from the concierge was just brilliant. Photographer that we'd booked did everything to shoot us as good as was possible.

    Hi Guys Visa + nomination applied - 11/5/17 Position- Dental Technician No. Of applicants- 4 Country - India CO allocated- 19/10/17 Asked AFP submitted same day 22/11/17- CO called clinic - spoke to employer confirming my work details No news after that till 29/4/19 Then I lodged a complaint against my case in Global feedback unit They didn’t reply to my complaint until 20/5/19 I called global feedback unit on 21/5/19 and put a complaint again against unattended complaint before. The lady said give us 3 working days and you might hear something from them. 21/5/19 at 6:35pm received email from a CO manager saying sorry for not replying before but they are working on my file and will reply to us asap. Please be patient. Today- 23/5/19 - CO called clinic again asking for my boss. I answered phone and said he is not available then he asked for myself. I got scared and unknowingly said ......I am at other clinic instead of saying he is talking to me only. He called other clinic again asking for boss. He was not there then he asked for me and receptionist said I am at other clinic.... he got confused... he asked to speak to owner... owner handled the situation well... then he called my boss (2nd owner) he handled situation well again..... while we all worrying about the outcome of mistake I did( between 4:30pm to 5:35pm ) ....My boss called me saying NOMINATION is APPROVED. From this[emoji1314] [emoji35][emoji24][emoji22][emoji33]🥵 to this [emoji1314][emoji23][emoji8][emoji23][emoji2][emoji1][emoji16][emoji23][emoji7]🥰 in just in few minutes is awesome feeling Atleast Silver email is here.

    187 Visa Processing Time

    Don’t worry bro. there are so many people like me with you, who got 187 nomination refusal on unnecessary ground. After waiting for a year, I got refusal saying nominator could not demonstrate the need of another managerial position. So position is not genuine even though there are around 80 employees working in my company. They didn’t ask any documents. I don’t know the chances of Winning AAT because there are around 9 people before me in AAT queue from same company and the reason is same for everyone not genuine position.
  6. I haven’t but whilst I was waiting for my test there was someone who was told to bring ALL their documents to their rescheduled appointment as they were leaving. I assumed it was because something was missing but I may be upsetting you unnecessarily by doing the old 2+2=5 thing. I hope you can find it? Or someone comes along and says they did the same thing and it was fine. Fingers crossed for you[emoji1694]
  7. I have done bachelor's of civil engineering from pakistan. Then I did my msc construction management from Australia. I have no relevant visa. Should I get my skills assessed from engineer Australia or Vetassess.
  8. I am a UK qualified solicitor ( qualifying in 2005) and have been working as a university lecturer since 2010. I am looking to apply for a skills assessment but wanted to know if research is essential for this occupation. I work at a University that is focused on teaching and therefore the TEF rather the research. having looked at the ANZCO code and the tasks, I comply with all save for research? Many thanks in advance for any help or guidance

    I think your statement is a bit harsh tbh. A lot of native English speakers would struggle with IELTS, but that’s not the primary reason for this test, it’s the non native speakers who need to be able to communicate at a decent level of English (verbal and written) in order to function in the Australian workplace. Most people are trying to con Centrelink? Most? Yes some people do this but those type of people exist everywhere. One if the reasons the spouse visas take so long now is because of the number of fraudulent marriages, from overseas nationals trying to con their way into the country. It works both ways. 10 year olds involved in crime is not unique to Australia, it’s a bit of an odd thing to say. I genuinely don’t think immigration is out to cheat migrants. Seriously, the number of people who apply for visas alone, or rely on some dodgy MA is why there’s so many refusals. All the criteria for the visa is not on immigrations website, they actually advise potential migrants to use a MARA registered agent who should know the details to ensure the applications are full and complete at the time of lodgement. Its why immigration should not be relied on for advice, they actually have insurance for the bad advice their phone operators provide. It’s incredibly complex, more so than I think people realise. I don’t know if you are trying to migrate to Australia, but don’t bother if you have such a poor opinion of the country.

    What Book are you reading??

    I was the same. I bought it a year after it came out, read a couple of chapters and didn’t get far. The criminal and underworld element and general hangers on/ hippie vibe seemed a bit superficial and off putting to to me. It’s far more than that first impression, it turned out. Lots of people said it was epic and was fantastic. So I finally thought maybe I should give it another go. I finally started up again, quite a good few years later obviously about a month ago and just couldn’t put it down. It is an absolute epic journey. Very human, otherworldly, yet down to earth. Karma and fate in equal doses, little victories as little tragedies and full of serendipitous occasions. A bit like Arabian nights - stories intertwine and mesmerise, plots and sub plots but not overwhelming or hard to keep on top of. . In sum it’s the experiences of the author whilst on the run in India, how people influence him and vice versa, the relationships he makes on the way and how they affect him and those he had them with, in unimaginable ways. I throughly recommendation giving it another go and sticking with it.

    He has applied for a 187 visa, the nomination comes from the regional employer, not the state.

    No it's not too fast. I applied Feb 2019, got a test invite for June 2019. So it's probably becoming a norm now. Hopefully approvals are as quick as the invites though.

    I think it should get exposed in media in the world so every country knows how Australia is making money and how cruel and racial they are ? Also , I bet if you ask Australians to appear for IELTS 50% wouldn't know spellings of words, qualifying the exam is secondary. Most people are only busy in analysing ways and methods to cheat Centrelink to get the maximum payment from them for their survival without having to work. Kids aged 10 years are involved in crime and stealing. They are not scared of anyone. Instead of understanding these complex issues which will ruin the country in the long run. They are focussing on cheating migrants.

    Renting out your UK house!

    Hi all, after self managing and going with a local agency to rent out our old home, we found Expat Lettings and I want to say that they are by far the best company we have ever used! They are relatively unknown so I thought I'd let you all know. They manage property across the UK and because they are a remote company, their fees are cheap compared to the agencies. Our property is just outside of London so the agencies charge between 12-18% plus extras and handling fees!!!! As the tenant fee ban is coming in in June, I thought I'd give you all a heads up as it is becoming more costly being a landlord. I haven't needed it, but I know that Expat Lettings also don't charge huge fees for tenant referencing and often don't charge for handling either. I nearly sold our place back home because I got fed up with the hassle and having to pay higher fees (especially when the dollar is so weak against the pound). It is worth being fully informed if you have a place in the UK as things are changing fast!
