    Are we being misled?

    Make sure the agent is registered at the link below. There are absolute horror stories on here over the years. Hopefully all will be well for you. https://www.mara.gov.au/search-the-register-of-migration-agents/

    Moving to Australia - checklist

    There's a load of information in the pre and post arrival checklists in the articles section that I found useful: https://www.pomsinoz.com/articles.html/migration/

    Nursing in Oz

    Not sure about the rest of it, but diploma trained nurses can still register in New Zealand and transfer that to AHPRA via TTMR (Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition). We've just gone through this. Which visa are you looking at? Are you the main applicant?

    Ahpra reg via NZ

    We're currently doing TTMR so don't have personal experience of it yet. But everything I've read from nurses who have recently done it, has said that there is no requirement to present to AHPRA via TTMR.

    I know no one will care but...........

    IKNOWCB - It's been 5 years since I joined the forum. Plenty of ups an downs in that time but we're arriving in Oz in a week's time to validate our 189. Thanks for the help everyone!

    EOI Invitation date predictions (FOR 189 VISA ONLY)

    Hi Captain - I first posted on this thread back on post 184. At that time there were no 60 point 2613 occupations going through. Since then it looks like it's changed and 60s have gone through for a few rounds now - so I was wondering if you could give me a shot: 1) 261313 2) Software Engineer 3) 60 4) 12/08/2015 Cheers!
  13. Brilliant DizzyD - your story has touched all that read it. We have all been waiting for this post from you. Best of luck in your new life!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Points for Degree

    Thanks Joy - I'll take a look into the ins and outs of that visa. We didn't want to pin ourselves down to a state when we started this process, but the goalposts have been moved so many times on us that we may have no other choice.

    Thanks CaptainC and all who have replied for the link and advice - unfortunately my wife is a diploma nurse and can't get skills assessment from ANMAC or registration from AHRPA, so I can't get the 189 in her name or even get the 5 extra points for partner skills. Frustrating! I've started another thread on which degree I require to get the extra points for education - so it looks like I'm going back to Uni to top up to a degree before I lose points for age and my IELTS expires...
