    confused

    yes i understand the diploma /degree issue, i have enrolled on 3 modules from sept/oct to top up to the degree by the summer so all being well with the visa application my degree will be completed by the time the visa is in place. thank you

    confused

    i am trying to do my own research and a part of that is asking people going through it or who have been through it. I have read many posts on here stating that agents arent usually involved in recruitment and t seems frowned upon, so im not sure why asking is getting such a negative repose. I actually thought very highly of the agent on the phone, but my 'level sense' reminds me that there is a huge amount of money involved in using an agent that i have never met, so asking others gives me a point of reference to ask him more questions.

    my brother in law is a lawyer and is in Aus, so when he said he didnt have to do an English test because he has a degree from an English university, there was no reason for me not to believe what he was saying, my question is, is this correct for all visas.

    confused

    i'm confused by what i have read and what my agent is suggesting and seeing as so much money is involved i thought id do a bit more digging! I am a nurse, my qualification is a nursing diploma, the agent has said i need to do the English test, my brother in law doesn't think that is correct. He said that people who have done an English degree don't need to do the test. Now obviously i don't have a degree, but i have attended an English university. I was also born and educated in England and my family are all British. The documents they have provided also mentioned that the agents will support the application process for registration to the Australian Nursing board and 'present' me to potential employers, however, i have read on this forum that this is not a normal practice. That agents aren't normally involved in helping find employment. Is this true or is it different for Nurses / skilled workers?

    Official nurses thread!

    Hi, I'm a registered adult nurse with diploma and I have lots of questions! 1) has anyone used an agent to carry out their process and how did it work out. We have spoken to an agent who is going to prepare / apply for PR based on me doing the top up through the open university over the next few months. However I'm told I need to do the English test is this anyone else's experience? 2) how different clinically is the job. I'm used to roles where I'm quite independent clinically. 3) we are looking at the Sunshine Coast and wondered if there was anyone out there. I see lots of posts for the Gold Coast but not the Sunshine Coast. 4) I've seen posts saying private hospitals pay less, just wondered if that means they aren't bound by the Qld pay scales I've seen? 5) does anyone have any links to ways to compare budgets or work out how much difference bills are etc. Trying to work out if we will be better off. We have a 3 month old baby so will need to look at either child care or my partner taking reduced hours if I earn more.

    i thought this area was specific to pet air and so my question was to them regarding pet travel.

    Do you provide all the paper work or do we get that independently?

    can you visit in quarantine?

    Hi, yes we are aware of the expense and differences regarding rules etc hence our detailed planning and making sure we do what is right by all our dogs :wubclub:

    can you visit in quarantine?

    We are still very much in the planning stages. We have A LOT of dogs and sadly we know that we cant take them all with us due to some not being able to make the journey and because its unlike;y we will find somewhere to live with so many. So we are trying to do whats best for each dog. One thing that we realised is that the quarantine period will be the bit that affects some of them. Is it possible to visit them in quarantine? What actually happens in quarantine, are they walked / handled or in kennels and just fed? So much to think about. Thanks
