    RRV Options availble to me?

    Hi Marisa How do we demonstrate ties to Australia? Can you give us some examples please? Ignore if you are not the right person to ask.

    Applying for skilled visa

    Hi Tashyp I think you need references from your employer and not colleagues. Stat decs is required only if your employer isn't willing to provide you a reference on a company letterhead or has become dormant. More info here - https://www.acs.org.au/content/dam/acs/acs-skills/Skills Assessment Guidelines for Applicants - Feb 2018.pdf

    Around Glen Innes area

    Lovely pics. Please keep them coming. Two reasons I visit PIO - positive stories about moving to Oz and the pics members post and obviously help members where I can ;-)

    12 years of experience in what stream? You'll have to meet the English language requirement so there is no alternative to an exam. When you do your EOI, you have to select your MSc as it has been assessed by ACS.
  6. Husband having a British citizenship will not automatically make you eligible to live in the UK. He will have to prove that he will be earning a minimum of £18,600 (more if you have children/dependents). This link should give you more information re entry requirements - https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa As for healthcare, @nemesis is correct, you pay an additional £600 with the visa application fees and be entitled to NHS care for as long as your visa is valid.

    Nice pics Tink and BobJ. I've also seen your other pics. Can I ask what camera do you two use?

    Work Experience before B.sc Degree is counted?

    Hi Egilgamesh Unfortunately it won't be counted towards your work experience.

    What games do you play?

    The other is Clash Royale although you feel like you are playing against a computer sometimes. I prefer Clash of Clans.
  10. One bank I particularly don't like is HSBC and I'd be reluctant to share personal details over the phone. If I were you, I'd tell them I'll update my details online.

    Medicals and police check

    Hi Maggie2308 Assuming you are in the UK here's a list of panel physicians- https://www.border.gov.au/Lega/Lega/Help/Location/united-kingdom The case worker will notify you via email when and what medicals are needed. The physician will do a blood, urine, eye test and xray scan.

    IELTS Vs PTE Academic...any thoughts?

    Hi ScottishMatilda I went for PTE. I am not a native English speaker (although studied English all my life) and still manged 80+ in each component. Reason for taking PTE was proximity to the test center and availability of test dates and results (published next day). I started my preparations a week before the exam by doing a few mock tests so as to understand how scoring works and watching a videos on YT. I cannot comment on IELTS as never attempted. I think majority on this forum prefer IELTS over PTE so depends on theindividual.

    Emigration route - WHV > 457 > 186?

    I second Bunga and Lorna. 189 is the best way forward. If you are going for a holiday in January why don’t you start your skills assessment process (i.e. gathering references and attesting your certificates) in the meantime? Or do your English test? AFAIK these are the two major time consuming exercises, the rest should only take you 1-2 months max depending on how many points you score. The more points you have the more quicker your initial application gets processed.
