    Migration agent help

    You can be asked to pay: visa application charge, health insurance, skills assessment fee (if called for) English test and medical examination fees, police clearances, travel to Australia (not return). I do not assist employers who are not willing to meet all of these costs.

    Enquiry about 47A Form

    From what you have posted, your interpretation is correct. DHA are masters of displacing the modifier 'only'.

    Well put.I It can be noted that Canada and NZ immigration do not accept applications from unregistered parties, no matter where they are. There are too many backhanders on offer for Australia to do likewise.

    Bridging Visa A. but no right to work

    Was your agent a registered migration agent. Who lodged the 500?
  8. Dear Westly Pause in acceptance of new applications for 7 trade occupations From September 25 we will pause acceptance of new applications for assessment for the trade occupations of: Chef, ANZSCO Code 351311 Cook, ANZSCO Code 351411 Diesel Motor Mechanic, ANZSCO Code 321212 Motor Mechanic (General), ANZSCO Code 321211 Fitter (General), ANZSCO Code 323211 Electrician (General), ANZSCO Code 341111 Metal Machinist (First Class), ANZSCO Code 323214. In agreement with Trades Recognition Australia (TRA), we will not accept new applications for these occupations to enable us to deal with a high number of applications. If you have already lodged an application with us, you don’t need to take any action. We will continue to process the application.

    Parent 143 application using an agent or not

    1. !t is sound practice to consult a RMA for an assessment, even if you do not retain one to manage an application. 2. In my experience only lawyers do this.

    Expression of interest

  14. Ensure that all parties, including yourself, have to hand a copy of certifications. Complications sometimes arise when a party is not available to take a telephone call and inquiries are directed to (for example) an HR department where what they were employed to do is recorded, but not the duties actually performed.

    Military Service - Demonstration of Service

    'National service' engagement is usually straightforward, but outstanding liability for it might raise an issue. Regular service is quite another matter.
