    Newbie some help please.

    A 189 might seem viable in principal but the reality is that it us unlikely to be a viable option at the moment. Unlikely to help your situation.
  2. You can't go from a BVE to a BVA.
  3. You can only lodge an onshore Contributory Parent Visa if you are over a certain age. Bridging visa is granted automatically if a valid onshore application is lodged.

    482 Visa Help Needed

    You will be lodging a new visa application so will need to provide all required documents. Labour Market Testing is mandatory unless an exemption applies. It will depend on the specific details for your application.

    Agent Fees

    @TheBs I am not sure exactly which enquiry you were as I receive many requests for assessments. The reason that I cannot advise the cost before assessing your specific situation is that each visa has different requirements and costs. Even within the same visa, there are different costs depending on the situation. As an example: A subclass 189 visa requires a skills assessment, an expression of interest and a visa application if invited. A subclass 190 visa requires a skills assessment, an expression of interest, a State application if invited and a visa application if invited. Each State has different requirements and costs. A 491 visa requires a skills assessment, an expression of interest, a State application if invited and a visa application if invited. Each State has different requirements and costs which are different to the 190 visa requirements. A subclass 186 requires a nomination application (where Training Costs will vary depending on the business) a skills assessment and a visa application. Further each assessing Authority has different costs and requirements. There are potentially other visa all with different requirement and costs. Even for a partner visa the costs will vary depending on many factors which will determine the amount of work involved. Visa lodgement fees are different for each visa and depend on the number and age of applicants. I deal with applicants almost weekly who come to me as they have been taken advantage of, misled and miss quoted. I just had to deal with a poor soul who was told by a so called overseas Agent that their occupation was in high demand in Australia, when in reality their occupation was on the short term list. So please don't make accusations on a Public forum where I have assisted many for free, for years, that I will "sting you with massive charges". I have never been accused of this in over 15 years as an Agent and thousands of successful application. If you want a one size fits all price based on no assessment of your specific situation, feel free to do so, but don't disparage me because I tried to do the right thing by you.

    Changing Sponsored Occupation

    The two occupations you mentioned are classified in two very different and distinct ANZSCO classification groups. You would be wise to seek professional advice as this is potentially a tricky situation.
  7. 1. The need to travel. Generally quite accommodating but much more difficult during COVID. 2. Reason for travel and to some degree, visa applied for. 3. The bridging visa is no longer valid and they need to apply for another visa to get back to Australia. 4. They cannot apply for a new BVB while outside of Australia. 5. Will be processed as normal and when ready to finalise will send a letter stating that it cannot be finalised as the applicant needs to be in Australia (unless it was lodged before 24/03/2021).

    Finding a Sponsor

    What occupation are you looking at? Be mindful that for a 494 your occupation also needs to be on the list for the specific region, of the specific State you are looking to be sponsored by. And even then, you still need to be invited to apply.

    Where to start?

    This is very true. I've had some companies use my name as a Google AdWord so when people searched my name their business would be displayed first. As for the OP, an application as a Nurse may be possible as this occupation is on the Priority List.

    Offices still processing?? Agents answer please

    AAT matters that have been returned to DOHA for processing are moving, but slowly. You can lodge a complaint with the GFU (Global Feedback Unit) but this is likely to result in only a standard response.
  11. If you are offshore and apply for a 482, it will not be processed unless you have an occupation on the priority list and can obtain a travel exemption. If you are offshore you are unlikely to be invited to apply for a 491 visa.

    Urgent - response needed ASAP

    It would be very unusual for the 400 visa to be granted if no travel exemption was in place. If he does not have an approved travel exemption, he will not be allowed to board the plane.

    Nominated Occupation

    It will depend on many factors including the assessing authority requirements for your chosen occupation and the points you can score for migration purposes. If you are currently off shore a 189 r 491 would be unlikely at the moment.

    RPL in place of education requirement for PR

    The skills assessment and points for migration are two separate issues. ACS is the assessing authority for IT occupations and they can assess your skills under RPL if you have no IT qualifications. An RPL skills assessment by the ACS can be used for visa application purposes. The points you will score is a Migration issue and separate to the ACS. It will depend on many factors such as age, English, qualification, employment experience, etc. The bigger issue to consider is what visa are you looking to qualify for. If you are off shore, your current options will be limited.

    Considering Parents visa - its daunting!

    Be mindful that onshore parent visa lodgments are limited by age and not available to everyone.
