  1. Hi, thanks for the response. Had a look at those visas and now more confused So my story is that we emigrated to Perth in 1982, and I came back to England with my mother in 1987 (unbeknownst to me, I was under the illusion that we were coming back for a holiday). Anyway, so as it has been such a long time since, I dont think I could apply for the returning resident visa?! Its not quite clear. Would you know if it is possibe? Many thanks
  2. Hi all, Ok, so in July 2011 I applied for skills assessment for 313214 - Telecommunications Technologist with Engineers Australia. I had originally queried with Eng Oz as I don't hold an Engineering degree. I actually hold a computing degree, but had worked in Telecoms for 7 years. They said that there shouldn't be any issues after explaining my situation. I sent my 52 page CDR and waited for a positive outcome. In November 2011 I received a 1 line letter telling me that I as unsuccessful and would be more suited to software development?!?! Anyway, after 3 months of disappointment I decided to lodge a very cleverly worded informal appeal. I didn't hear anything until October 2013, when I received an apology email out of the blue. They over turned my initial assessment! Wow! So now I have an official skills assessment. So anyway, I had kind of got my head out of Australia and dismissed the idea. On receiving the email, I was not too bothered, but now that I have been thinking about it, I'm getting the bug again! But now, I have no idea how much the emigration system has changed in 2 years (I'm guessing a lot!) So I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. 1) How long is my skills assessment valid for? 2) What is the process now? I seem to think that now you need to apply, so that you can apply. Is this correct? Is it possible to apply for permanent migration? 3) Does anyone know of any DWDM / SDH jobs in Perth, or have a good website link that can help those with a skills assessment only, to get a job and emigrate. I was brought up in Perth and my Father's side of the family are all out there - if only I had my Australian Citizen ship ;-) Thanks for your time, I'm totally out of touch with the process! Cheers Neil

    Confused about WA nomination...

    Hi Lebourvellec, Thanks for the response... Its on the SOL 2 and I would need to go down the state migation 176 path as a result. So you would recommend I just apply for the occupation under the TRA. Then If I get a positive assessment, go to the WA migration site to apply for state migration??! Sorry, probably seems obvious... Thx
  4. Hi All, Does anyone know the actual process for state migration? The occupation that I will apply under is only on the WASMOL, which fortunately is where we want to be. I need to have my skills assessed under TRA, but I could not see my occupation as the TRA only seem to have occupations on the national SOL. I mailed TRA and the said I need to be nominated first and as such look at WA migration website. I looked on there and all that is mentioned is the actual application for sponsorship with a skills assessment already received. I seem to be chasing my tail, as TRA say go to WA site, and WA site needs a skill assessment. I'm quite possibly missing something... Can anyone please point me in he right direction of what the process is, as a starter in the migration process.. Much appreciated Oxbose
