  6. Glimmer of hope for accountants

    Accountant is one of the 16 occupations mentioned with asterisks. Although it says it applies to new applicants after 19th April only
  7. Glimmer of hope for accountants

    On 19 April 2017, 200 occupations were removed entirely from the STSOL. See: List of the removed occupations A further 16 occupations on the MLTSSL (indicated by ‘** asterisks’) were restricted to only apply to the following visa programmes: Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) Skilled-Regional(Provisional) (subclass 489) - Family nominated See: Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) If your occupation has been removed from the list, you will be impacted if: you apply for one of the following visa programmes on or after 19 April 2017: Employer Nominated Scheme (subclass 186) – Direct Entry Stream Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190) Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489) Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (Subclass 457) Training visa (subclass 407) That is, any applications already lodged before 19 April 2017 for the above visa subclasses (other than a 457 visa) will not be impacted (even if the occupation was removed on 19 April 2017).

    Changes have been made this week for visas, accountants can no longer apply for a 190 visa. Is anyone here affected by this?
  9. Hi laevans, have you seen the thread about the change to 457 visas, and particularly the part that implies that skilled visas will be changed.. "significantly condensing the occupation lists used for skilled migration visas, including the subclass 457 visa, from 19 April 2017 "
  10. I got the book off ebay, and sold it through ebay as well. I don't think it will come off the list as they have been saying that for years, but there might be a further reduction in numbers. But who knows!? Our plans are coming on very quickly, my friends are talking leaving dos... and it's all a bit scary and real and exciting!!
  11. Thank you for your help. Hopefully it will resolve itself as the doctors here have said it might!!
  12. Thank you Petals, that's really useful information. Yes I was worried about the health care system, because of the potential costs really. Thanks
  13. Hi, My daughter has a hearing loss problem that may or may not need treatment in the future. We are due to move out this summer. We have considered getting her treated privately here first, but the NHS insist it may correct itself as she grows. Would she be covered in Australia, or would it be a pre existing condition and how much would it cost if she needed a hearing aid or grommets in the future? How does the medical insurance etc work over there?
  14. Good move on the PTE! I did that one, the only advice is practice using the example questions online/ in book and full concentration on the day!! Sorry I sold my practice book or I would have sent it to you. When's the exam?
