    190 Visa Grant

    Congrats! Let the excitement begin. If you have property in the UK, selling rather than renting it out might be a better idea, but dyor.
  2. Hello


    I tried to send my ASMIRT application the other day and the post office wouldnt accept it as there was no city listed or building name or number. Do you have nay advice?

      Hi Vicky,

      Use this address:

      25 King Street, Melbourne, Vic., Australia 3000

      And use DHL.

      Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

      And do call them on +61 3 9419 3336 to check that they haven't changed address since I used the above 5 years ago.

    Applying for citizenship with a DVO & crimial record

    Sounds like you've been through an awful lot mate. Police checks will be done as part of the citizenship application, and one would think that the Interpol saga will rear its head up. Good luck, hope you find some resolution.

    Applying for citizenship with a DVO & crimial record

    I'm sorry to hear about what you've been through. Taking an objective view of your post, I'm assuming they already have PR, so citizenship should not really bring anything significant to their life (from what I believe). How would the change in their immigration status from PR to citizen impact you and your offspring?

    Nursing Registration

    Have you tried looking at getting some tutorial? The IELTS scoring criteria for the written section is very specific, and some coaching may be of use to you. Here's a link that could be useful: https://ieltsliz.com/

    North Lakes and Town house?

    Townhouses will attract Body Corporate fees, and you may not be able to make the changes that you wish to, without approval from the body Corp, if they allow it.

    Aged parents visa

    Hi guys, Can anyone recommend an agent that has significant experience with the above please? Thanks DN

    Probably not. I think they should be able to email it to AHPRA directly.
  10. This. How about some locum work? You might come across something that'll broaden your experience.

    190 Offshore Visa Applicants

    Maybe just give them a nudge? It's difficult trying to get to a sympathetic soul at the department, but my friend managed to to that, and her processing started shortly afterwards.

    ASMIRT skills assessment - how long?

    One more thing to point out. Even if you applied for your visa before your 32nd birthday, you might not get invited before the latter.

    ASMIRT skills assessment - how long?

    Assume a minimum of 12 weeks. Hth.

    Things you wish you knew before building

    We bought a place last year, and within weeks of moving in, the gas boiler died, the shower mixer broke, the electric oven caught fire and a lot more stuff went wrong. So we have done some sort of reno. We installed a 10kW solar system, an induction free-standing hob/oven, as well as a heat pump hot water system. In hindsight, a simple 3kW hot water heater would have sufficed instead of a heat pump, as I time the water to be heated up during solar production hours.
