    189 vs 186 ENS

    Guys, anyone else with his/hers opinion regards to those two visas
  2. This is interesting topic, as my situation is similar, but I was just wondering if I apply for 457 and get bridging visa A, can I then having Bridging visa A apply for 189 visa? and if I apply for 189 visa from Australia do I need to be in Australia when visa is ready for decision?

    Ozmaniac, thanks for your response. Basically, my employer already prepared documents and just waiting for me to confirm which visa I will go and to be lodged. 2 months for 189 was based on info that people provide on their timelines. However, do you know if once you get letter from your authority does Immi normally stick with approved experience or it is not rare to refuse some of experience? Thanks

    Hi all, before everything I apologize dropping my issue on this tread, but I was hoping if anyone can give me any advice it would be appreciated. Also, congrats to those ones who has got their visa granted and wish a luck to those ones who are still waiting. Namely, I was just wondering if someone from seniors can advice on my dilemma regarding to choosing right pathway for my visa. My situation as per below: 1. currently in Australia on 485, visa expires on 4th May 2. waiting for skills assessment that hopefully will come next week 3. if they approve my experience with more than 1yr and less than 3, I will have 60 points, but no time to get invite prior current visa expiration as per current trend, then I will apply for 457(my boss is willing to sponsor me) and after that lodge EOI and once get an invite will go for 189 - no dilemma there *more important 4. If EA approve 3 yrs of my experience then what??? I will have 65 points and if the outcome letter comes before 24, then I can go for 189 and get invite on 24th April and then apply after that but prior current visa expiration or I should stick with 186 and go that way??? My employer already collected all docs regarding to 457 and 186 as on the end of April we will run out of time and sent to my migration agent and I am already paying MA for their service for nomination or sponsorship. Therefore cost for MA will be sort of same as I made a deal with them that no matter which way I choose it will come to same cost for me. My dilemma is 189 vs 186??? advantages and disadvantages for both? Following forums it looks that decision for 189 is quicker sort of 2months comparing to 186 around 4-6months, but that is all what I know. I would appreciate if someone with experience with this or similar situation can open my eyes if I am missing something. Thank you in advance.

  6. Hi sathyajithsr, this is very similar circumstance as mine, in difference that my experience I am gaining here in AUS now. I am also interested in question that you asked so does immigration will approve experience if it is not assessed by EA. as Kate was on this topic while ago, not sure if she wold be able to give us an answer, but hopefully someone else will. Finger crossed!!

    Thanks MaggieMay24, do you or anyone know how they calculate experience- is that how it is assessed by appropriate authority( engineers Australia ) say on Nov 2014 ,so it would be 2 yr and 7 months in that case not eligible for direct entry or on date of application so it would be end of apr 2015 which should be a bit more than 3 years in that case eligible for direct entry? Thank you for your response

    Hi everyone, i have been working for one employer from 11.4.2012. My 485 visa expires on 4.5.2015. I am a civil site engineer. 1. Am I able to apply for 186 visa using same employer that I am currently employed 2. As 3years of experience will be on 11.4.2015 - does it mean that my application should be lodged after that but before 485 visa expires( approx. 3 weeks)? any advice would be appreciated,which way to go.

    Thanks smwarlock20, but I am still in doubt.So ,when I rang Migration they told me 3 times different story,YEEES,NO and MAYBE is mandatory.I just want to know can I start to go in process before I apply,even Migration agents told me different story.So,sorry but I am still confused.I am trying to do everything what is in my power that they can't refuse my application,but I am finding that assessment will be a challenge because I have no much experience. Anyway thanks a lot,so maybe I'll find someone in engineeringindustry but same situation.
  11. Hi there, my experience is that was very easy and without any trouble.We provided statement of her family, my family and our common friends.We also provided some of our together photos from different period of year,snow winter,summer sun and like that.We didnt have any common bills but we have national id on same address. Statement was "I that and that state that I know (his name) and ( her name) for 4 years and I can confirm that they are in de facto relation for 3 years.I am close friend of (his/her name). We were in relation for 3 years and I think it help that I had hair on some photos,but on the last ones I was getting bold.:laugh: I dont like that but in that case it was helpfull. Cheers

    hi guys, I am a civil engineer and also interested to apply for 857 visa as I have a potential sponsor who is willing to sponsor me.Because I did not start process of application yet I am just wondering is it mandatory that I assess my degree from overseas before lodgment or it is not necessary,but still I am eligible to apply for that visa.I am asking that because I dont have much experience and I suppose that will be a big challenge.I know that on the Immigration web site if it is necessary to allow you to work independetely that you have licence or registration you have to do that,which is not mandatory for civil engineer,I guess,but still I dont know how Immigration looks on that. Thanks in advance
