    Qualifications for 190 visas

    Hi kezfods Sorry for a late reply haven't been on here for a while!! I got a confirmation letter from City & Guilds confirming that my Diploma Level 2 is the exact same as an NVQ Level 2. This is to be enclosed with the visa application and it is up to that assessing body whether you still have to do a skills test or not. Some are saying they have had to do it others are saying they haven't, so it all depends when your application goes in. When and where are you looking at going??:smile:
  4. Hi talesofatwinmum I don't have any answers for your questions but may I suggest looking up Alan Collett on here from Go Matilda they are pretty good and the most helpful of all the agents I have ever spoken or there is another guy on here to called Rupert don't know the rest but he I think is an agent or something. The only other suggestion is to phone to Australian Immigration themselves and find out exactly what they say. Hope this helps you, and good luck :smile:

    Qualifications for 190 visas

    Hi there Just wondered if anyone can help. I'm a little confused by the qualifications that are required for a 190 visa. I currently hold a Diploma Level 2 in Ladies Hairdressing (City & Guilds) and an NVQ Level 3 in Hairdressing (City & Guilds). The Level 3 certificate I received in March this year. My Diploma I gained in July 2010. What I need to know is whether my Diploma Level 2 is the equivalent of the Australian Certificate III. I also have one year paid as a Hairdresser and two years unpaid training experience can I use this??? Now I have set up self employed again and only been going a few months, running a Photography and Hairdressing business can I use this as a gateway to Australia??? Any advice would be much appreciated :biggrin:

    New Visa Application Charges from 1st of July 2013

    Thank you Alan, when I spoke to the agent yesterday they asked me to write down the costs whilst I was on the phone to them, which I did, then they said the costs would all be in the follow up e-mail that they were sending yesterday. All I received from the agent was a letter of Terms and Conditions for if I decide to go with them and a Pro Forma invoice for their charges to do the visa. There was no list of the costs and what the costs are for. I have a list of questions to ask them today see what they have to say but I will be ringing around other agents as I am now not sure if I received correct advice in the first place.

    New Visa Application Charges from 1st of July 2013

    I spoke to an agent today with regards to 190 visa. We are just about to start on it, but I am a little miffed to be honest. Not once was it been mentioned about the rising cost of the visa application and according to this thread it has been known for over a week. Feeling a bit let down & confused :err: really not sure what to make of it or the migration agent that neglected to mention the additional costs.

    457 Visa - Agriculture - WE NEED HELP??

    Thank you ABA that's what we thought & we were told originally it just threw us a little when this guy said that. I think it might be because the other guy only has a trade of Electrician nothing in Agriculture at all that they have had problems.
  12. Hi there just wondered if anyone could help us........? My partner has just been offered a job this week in the area we want to be in, however the guy has explained to us that he is not a Business Sponsor as of yet, he is willing to do this for the right person, which is my partner, but he has been told by a migration officer that people cannot get in on a 457 visa into Agriculture. He has already tried to sponsor a guy recently but found there to be a problem as the guy's main trade was an electrician and the government weren't keen on him going into Agriculture. :confused: What we would like to know is that my partner has worked in Agriculture all his life & wants to work in Australia, it has always been one of his goals in life, we want to know is this possible on the 457 Visa & if it is not is there another route we can choose to go down...............?????:eek: Any suggestions, advice would be much apprecaited
