    evisitor and 189 visa

    I have been searching on the forums but could find the answer any ideas? Once an application has been submitted for a 189 visa does that cancel the tourist visa? So far only an EOI has been submitted as my Partner is in the process of applying for a 189 visa but no invitation to apply has been offered as we expect this to be offered in July once the ceiling has been reset. We are planing to do a reckie later this year but wasn't sure of the implications of a potential pending 189 visa application with an eVisitor tourist visa ? Thanks in advance :rolleyes:

    ACS timescales 2013

    Just thought I would provide an update following my original post. we e-mailed ACS to ask for an update and was advised that the paperwork was with an assessor but today we received a positive outcome so in total took 10 weeks

    ACS timescales 2013

    Hi, I am wondering if anyone has an idea on the timescales for ACS as it has been "with assessor" for the last 3 months. I think they need more staff :wacko: Any guidance would be appreciated Thanks

    Reccie with EOI

    Hi can anyone answer; can you visit Australia if you have submitted a EOI? We are planning a reccie trip if we receive a positive assessment from ACS and are looking at going to Melbourne in May.We have a tourist visa but didn't want to confuse matters if a EOI was submitted. I understand that once you apply for a 189/190 this can invalidate the tourist visa but wasn't sure about just an expression of interest. many thanks in advance oh p.s. my OH skill has reached the ceiling for this year and wondered if we do get a positive assessment is it also worth doing the EOI straight away or wait until July (my instinct is to apply asap so we are the queue and in the system but may be wrong) :notworthy:

    confused over ceiling limit

    Hi I have read on the skill select website and here that the Occupational Ceiling limit has been reached for 261111 ICT Business Analyst but the latest Nomination Occupation List for Victoria is still showing as Applications currently accepted for this occupation. If I enter a EOI for a Business Analyst on a state skilled nominated (190) application and apply for VIC sponsership will this application also be on hold until July 2013 when the new SOL is released and the ceiling lifted? any ideas ?:confused:

    SkillSelect - 3 Occupational Ceilings reached

    Thats a good point! Is it worth not applying for a EOI incase the occupations are not needed on the 2014-15 year SOL and you have paid the money for a occupation thats not needed. any thoughts as now confused on the best course of action?

    Tenants rights

    After reading a few horror stories from here about renting and the agents I thought it would be worth while posting the link to the Tenant Help website http://www.tenanthelp.com.au
  12. Glad you have now got someone in the know and who is on your side. I would imagine that they would be in some kind of breach with the tenants court if they are providing an intention to sell but are re renting...Doesn't sound fair or right to me! I have been watching some today tonight clips on youtube to give us a flavour of some of the oz issues from blighty and my god nearly fell off my chair when I watched this clip http://youtu.be/njKNh8GpOaA I did wonder if she was related to your rental agent :wacko: Good Luck x

    Exhorbitant cost of anit-histamines!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but looks like oneclickpharmacy has gone bust http://www.leonbaileygreen.com/retail-features/01/07/oneclickpharmacy/ I have found this chemist ships internationally and is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council http://www.pharmacyregulation.org/registers/pharmacy/registrationnumber/1038007 I'm not connected to either but hope it helps
  14. sounds like one woman band is more interested in her image than anything else. I am not sure what state you're in but in addition to the RTA you should also contact the local tenants union, to give you an idea the one for Victoria is http://www.tuv.org.au keeping cool is key and try to remember once you've raised your voice you've lost the argument. :hug: Big hug from the UK
  15. Good Luck Mark would be really good to know how you got on as my OH is taking the test in Manchester next month. where are you having the test done?
