  1. Short-term accomodation Brisbane, with cats

    I'm vacating my current rental property in Fortitude Valley (2 bed unit, overlooking the Story Bridge, open in September 2017), as we want to be close to the coast. It's one or two stops to Central Station. https://www.fvpeppersresidences.com Let me know if you're interested and I'll put you in touch with the rental agents. And they do allow cats.
  2. Your finance options might be limited on a 457. With looking into.

    They should do.

    Here's one at Caboolture Hospital: https://smartjobs.qld.gov.au/jobs/QLD-CAB264148
  6. Working visa

    Queensland Health Website itself. I skipped the agencies and went direct to the horse's mouth-I had no issues securing an interview and then bagging the job. https://smartjobs.qld.gov.au/jobtools/jncustomsearch.searchResults?in_version=&in_organid=14904&in_orderby=scoring+desc&in_multi01_id=1108&in_others="15149"&in_multi02="15149"~&in_multi02_id=requirements.agencynumber
  7. Good areas to live for families

    Hey @Ferrets, we're in the Valley, but our lease finishes in a couple of months. We're considering the Wynnum/Manly area. Do you mind sharing your thoughts as to what areas to avoid and which ones are family friendly please? We will have 2 under 2 come June (!) Thanks!
  8. AHPRA and ANMAC

    This doesn't have that much impact on your "skills assessment". Provided you're a Degree level nurse, and not a Dip(HE), and you have all the relevant experience backed up, your skills assessment should be a breeze.
  9. EOI invitation rounds

    I suppose you've got to ask yourself this: Am I prepared to wait as long as needed (bearing in mind you might lose points for age of you're at that borderline point, or even your language test might expire), or am I prepared to sacrifice two years of my life and life in a different state than I originally intended, but with the chance of getting a visa sooner?
  10. ANMAC experience

    I'm guessing it will be the post degree experience, since that is what is on the DIBP's criteria. It's always prudent to be conservative than risk a rejection.
  11. Chef for 189/190?

    Thanks for your answer.
  12. Making the decision

    IELTS is valid for 3 years, however, you'll all have to do it again, come citizenship application time.
  13. Making the decision

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation, it sounds like a tough position to be in. When you get invited to apply for your visa, remember that you do have a whole year from the date of the medicals/PCC from which to make your activation visit. After that, you have 5 years within which you then have to make the move. So you do have some breathing space, if that puts a different perspective on things. Also, once you submit your application, it doesn't matter if your occupation gets taken out of the list.
  14. Chef for 189/190?

    Hey all, Has anyone successfully applied for a 189/190 as a Chef? I'm making some enquiries on behalf of someone. Thanks, DN
  15. Have you used the official DIBP points calculator? https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/189-?modal=/visas/supporting/Pages/skilled/the-points-table.aspx
