    question about my granted 482

    For a subclass 482 visa, employment experience can substitute for formal qualifications. This is quite normal, especially in IT.

    question about my granted 482

    It is not your job title which determines the correct occupation, it is the actual duties you perform. The occupation of Computer network and systems engineer will give you more options from a visa perspective than IT Technician.

    If you are referring to the waiting to be invited by NSW, there are no published times. NSW regularly reviews lodged EOIs nominating NSW and decide which to invite, based on their own criteria. There is no guarantee that you will be invited. As you currently score the minimum, you should research ways to increase your score, to increase your chances of an invite.

    Secondary School Teacher Points Limit

    For the last few invitation rounds a minimum score of 80 was required to receive an invite for a subclass 189 visa. This may decrease in future rounds but is unlikely to come down to 65 points anytime soon. You should consider and research State Sponsorship through either the subclass 190 or 489. Also be mindful that the points system will be restructured in November, which will affect things going forward.

    From student to marriage visa for my soon to be wife.

    As with any industry there are good and bad operators. The Australian Immigration Industry is no different and gets even more criticism as there is usually no distinction made between Registered Migration Agents, Unregistered overseas operators (who are not regulated) and illegal operators. You have obviously had a bad experience and it is understandable that you have a general bad view of the industry. I don’t agree with your very general views, but you are entitled to your opinion. Considering the very high costs of partner visas and the high refusal rate, some consider professional assistance to be warranted. The Agents who have assisted the forum for a long time such as Paul, offer genuine assistance and are not simply touting for business. Occasionally a new Agent will come onto the forum trying to shamelessly advertise their business, but they are usually not tolerated for long. In some cases, we may recommend professional assistance if the matter is more complex or not easily explained. In your case, I agree with Paul, as going from a student visa to a partner visa is often mismanaged or misunderstood and ends in a bad outcome such as a Bridging Visa E. It is not something that can be explained in a few lines on a public forum. Joining a forum and very quickly picking fights with long term members is probably not the best way to gain assistance. Good luck with your application.
  6. This is very odd situation and your partner was lucky that he was allowed to claim Partner points if you were not included as an applicant on the subclass 189. I assume you were listed as a non migrating dependent. In response to your questions: 1) Yes, as you cannot claim points for a partner who is a Permanent Resident or Citizen; 2) No, you can not be added to a finalised 189 application.
  7. You may be able to have the decision vacated due to an invalid notification. This could avoid the need for an appeal. Worth discussing with your Agent/Lawyer.

    Company registering to sponsor me, wait times?

    If manged efficiently, two month is more then enough. You don't need to wait for the sponsorship to be approved as the Sponsorship , Nomination and Visa can all be lodged at the same time.

    TSS Qs

    You are confusing two different pathways; 186 TRT and 186DE. A skills assessment is not required under the current 186 TRT rules. You should explore whether 186 DE would be an option. Although a skills assessment is required for the DE pathway, you don't have to wait 3 years.

    From student to marriage visa for my soon to be wife.

    You just joined the forum and in less that an hour you have posted links to an outside company 4 times. If you are a representative of the company you are so eagerly advertising, you should disclose this.
  11. Your friend should seek professional advice independent of her employer. If the ABN changes it could cause serious problems for her application.

    Skills assessment for restaurant manager

    This is not correct for the occupation of Restaurant Manager. For skills assessment purposes, 1 or 2 years of experience is required, depending on qualifications.

    Skills assessment for restaurant manager

    You PR options will depend on your specif situation but as a Restaurant Manager will be limited.
  14. The relevant legislative instrument simply states that for applicants holding Greek passports; "tertiary qualifications OR successful completion of at least two years of undergraduate university study" is required.

    186 direct entry visa

    TSS is a subclass 482 temporary working visa and not relevant to a 186 DE application. I think you are referring TSMIT salary requirements. TSMIT is not the only issue that needs to be addressed with salary as there is also the Market Rate requirements to consider. The other issue is whether a full time Accountant would be required for a Medical Practice as this would form part of the genuine position.
