    See my post above with the screenshot
  2. Here`s the blog I did documenting my journey getting here:
  3. Have a look as the ANZSCO website. It is worth registering as it is free to do so. There you will find what a radiographer is expected to be doing. This helped me in my visa application. Somewhere on the ASMIRT website or theIr international accreditation application form there will be exactly what ASMIRT expect you to demonstrate in order to gain accreditation. It looks like we had a similar level of experience mate, I wouldn`t be worried if I was you. However, you need to cross the Ts and dots the Is. Unlike NZ, you do not need a post-grad to work in MRI in Queensland. However, some employers may choose to have this as a selection criteria. I know that the Sunshine Coast University Hospital do that. You are encouraged to get your ASMIRT MRI level 1 accreditation when you get a job. You sit and exam and support this with a log book of examinations. If you`re feeling aggrieved about spending 500 quid for ASMIRT, then prepare yourself for a big shock. We did everything ourselves, and we spent about AUD30k to get here. It is not a cheap process, but you have to weigh whether it is a financial risk that’s will pay off for you. I can definitely recommend a couple of agencies, although I decided to go it out alone. Nevertheless, they were brilliant in lining up interviews for me: Anthony Barono @ Alexander Associates +61295067000/+61425211634 https://alexander-associates.com.au/ Joanna @ http://globalhealth.com.au/ +61892270822 Our MRI skills are fully transferable, although the workload over here is extremely heavy. MRI departments usually run between 6am and 10pm. If you pick a good hospital, then you`re likely to be exposed to research/fetal/cardiac MRI. Let me know if you need more info. Standard disclaimer that “I am not a migration agent but speaking purely from experience” applies
  4. I can confirm that I had no issues in getting ASMIRT accreditation. I did general for 3 years, neuro CT like you for 2 years, and MRI for 3 years (the last year of that being exclusively MRI) when I submitted my skills assessment. The issue you will find will be with AHPRA not recognising your CT experience as being significant. But this is not something you need to worry about until you`re ready to apply for interviews. Oh and welcome to the forum.
  5. You had to have 2.07 AUD for every £ you wanted in March. Who knows what the near future will bring...

    Life in quarantine (Melbourne)

    We just sold one of our UK properties, and wet witnessed signatures were indeed required. Just a pointer, pay the extra and send the paperwork by DHL. AusPost international express took over a month to get there. DHL took less than 1 week.
  7. I believe that the 'Trans-Tasman agreement' has frequently been referred to whenever Diploma vs Degree argument popped up.

    Exemption granted but still waiting for visa!

    Damn. Talk about timing! Now that the occupation lists are out, I'm hoping that they'll start processing more offshore visas.

    Skilled occupation ceilings announced for 2020/21

    Thanks Allan. Hopefully they'll start processing offshore applications now.

    Well done on securing a position! I'm surprised but pleased for you that you were offered a job without a visa. How did you go about doing that, if you don't mind me asking?

    Have a look at the previous invitation rounds, that should give you an idea of actual points needed.

    Any offshore 190 been granted recently?

    The updated processing time of the 20th of July (for the month of June) still reflect processing of 90% of applications within 6 months.

    Advice please

    If you search the forum, you should be able to find threads that are social worker specific. Plenty of information, take your time and do some digging. Just be aware that currently the skilled migration program is on pause. You could still book a (usually free) consultations with many of the registered agents that are on this forum to get an idea of your pathway, once the progra re-opens. Good luck!
