  1. English Language/British Passport - IELTS Points

    Sorry 20 for superior
  2. English Language/British Passport - IELTS Points

    Hi, No that's not correct. You have to complete the test to claim the points. 10 for proficient and 15 for superior. As a UK citizen you don't need to prove you have English language but will need to if you want to claim the points. This is what I am doing also.
  3. Hi, iv just got mine back yesterday after applying on 5th May (all documents in). There has been a delay and processing times moved to 20/22 weeks although mine was slightly longer. Can't comment on the job as I'm applying for PR. Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app
  4. Does he need to complete a migration skills assessment for the temp 457 visa? Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app
  5. Well since speaking to the agency and explaining where I was at and saying I am applying for PR (189) they said it was ok?? And I asked if I could still get the package although this may not be correct now. Ok have to check with them but I haven't had my interview yet. They said this would be scheduled for some time in the next two months. I was already in the process and have sent off my AASW already so the job just came up at a good time although looking at the new waiting times it does not look like we will get out this year Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app
  6. Hi Zatara80, I am currently looking at the same package and areas and am also a family of five. I am however trying to complete my visa personally for PR and have told the agency this also ( not Mcarther). What part of the process are you at? Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app

    Ha ha I went through the same process and all documents were in by 5th May. Fingers crossed I hear soon. I am a little behind in looking at the actual visa application and knowing what forms I need to complete....best get on to this! Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app

    When did you send in your skills assessment. Mine was sent in May. I'm hoping to have an outcome by September and if I pass the PTE in August, I plan to complete an EOI. Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app

    Hi Poppyblue, This is so funny as I have also sent in my skills assessment and am awaiting an outcome and have a PTE test booked for August 16! I haven't completed a test yet but have heard people say this was the better of the two. I am also doing it myself to save money. We haven't any real savings but plan on selling up to fund the move. We to are planning on applying for 189. Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app

    Hi Poppyblue, This is my first post and I plan on doing exactly what you are. I am guessing you have moved over now and wondered how you got on? Sent from my SM-G950F using PomsinOz mobile app
  11. Hi Bonnie, just a quick question. I am a qualified social worker but have only been working in the UK for 3 months since qualifying. Its my understanding that until I have 2 years experience (for assessment of skills) I could not apply for EOI?

  15. 4 year plan !!

    Hi Rebecca and Lou I am also planning on moving to Oz and am also a social worker, working in child protection in a deprived area in the UK. My husband is a mechanical engineer and we have 3 children. We have been looking in to it since last year but it would be brilliant to get some advice from someone who is working there already. Marie
