    General Skilled Migration - the future

    Hello George, having looked over this information on the DIAC website, will the Skilled Occupation List still be broken down into two different categories, or will this stay the same as well, Many thanks Claire

    Surely they can get more staff to help with the influx of applications that they are getting, what a nightmare for applications and vetassess, Will just have to keep smiling, at least it is not the summer holidays there:cute:

  9. Hello all, I am so confused by immigration and the skilled occupation lists, I know that there are two lists, schedule 2 and schedule 3 If you have a family sponsor living in a designated area does it matter which skilled occupation list that you are on if you wanted to go for a 475 provisional visa!!!!!!!!! Or if you are on schedule 3 then you have TO GO FOR A STATE MIGRATION PLAN!!! ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? why oh why have they made it so difficult and complicated (still smiling though))))))

    Hello, Yes the page has updated from Active and now shows as pending and no further docs required, but before I put an urgent request in they said I would have to wait till October, am not holding out much up as I think that they are so behind with applications, will post and let you know if I hear anything. Good luck to you all, :wink:

    Hello all, I am waiting as well to hear back from Vetassess!! I sent my application in April with all documents and payment , I have emailed them a couple of times now to find out when my assessment will be completed and got an email back stating it will be October!!! I then have sent in an urgency request form, which has been accepted, so am fingers crossed I will find out shortly. I am with you guys this is so so frustrating, all the waiting, they originally said to me 12 weeks, and then added a further 10 weeks to the waiting time. It is outrageous. Fingers crosssed for you all, xxxxxxxx:wink:

    New Point System in July 2010

    Does anybody give any sense of the New Points System being introduced in July 2010:- Overseas Employment - will this be applicable to all occupations, i.e. 40/50/60 Offshore Apprenticeshop: Will this be for qualifications such as Diplomas and would you have had to have studied this for a year. They make it so confusing, :jiggy:

    Specific Work Experience HELP

    :arghh:Really need some help on this one as not to sure what to do!!!! MY Other half is a bricklayer and we first started doing the process for his Vetassess my OH was working for a company, this was two years ago, so he had ample work experience. Its taking us so long with all the changes that have been going on for him to get a positive skills assessment which he got in June of this year and now unfortunately his work experience is no longer Valid, and our agent has now told us to not wait around and go the the provisional 3 year visa as we get a 120 points, My OH has been working as a bricklayer as he is also classed as self employed,although we have some receipts etcc... we dont have a huge paper trail of information as he does it as a side earner really as oppose to running his own bricklaying company, am really frustrated as am now feeling we wont have enought for acceptance from DIAC and we have speant nearly two years on this now!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IELTS Madness

    Hello All, Just for your information, my husband has now sat the General IELTS test twice, On his first test he got:- Listening 7 - Reading 8 - Writing 6.5 - Speaking 9 After this test he said that he expected to get a 6.5 in the Writing as he did not finish the test and was incomplete. So he revised went back 8 weeks later - felt really confident and resat the test and his results were Listening 9 - Reading 8.5 Writing 6.5 and Speaking 8.5 We cant believe he got a 6.5 again, he said he done 100% better inn this test and completed all of the exercise for both of the tasks. I have just sent off his test for a remark!!!! Have also said to the college that the standard of marking was different between examinars as his first test was really bad in the writing section...... Sorry for moaning rambles, xxxxx:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

  23. Hello Everyone, Am just completing our Visa Application for Australia, and on the application it has any criminal convictions: My question is what actually counts as a criminal conviction? Ive been disqualified from driving which was made up of speeding offences!!! Does this have to be declared on the visa application? I WOULD SAY AS A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN THERE ARE TO MANY SPEEDING CAMERSAS IN ENGLAND AND THE SPEED RESTRICTINS PUT ON CERTAIN MOTORWAYS ARE RIDICULOUS Is a caution a criminal record? I just want to be 100% so that everything is declared on the Visa Application as we are making an honest application. If we do need to declare all speeding offences then I will need to write off to obtain a full list of speeding convictions as I cant remember dates etc for any of them. Any help would be much appreciated
