    We’ve been invited, what next?

    Yeh it’s like the final thing that can go wrong and the back of your head your thinking they’ll find it you’ve got cancer or something then it’s all over, silly but you can’t help it. Thanks for the link and do you find out results straight away or is it more waiting?

    I’m in Bournemouth. Do you know a link where I can find out? Good luck and let us know what it was like.

    That will work well, the wife’s just started a new job so wants to do a year with them before we go if all goes well.

    I guess we’ll get told by our agent as their dealing with all of it for us. Thanks for getting back. Any idea on the length of time from now until the visa comes through or is it a case of how longs a peace of string?

    We’ve been invited, what next?

    Today we have been told we can apply for our 190 NSW state sponsored visa, we’re not sure what the next steps are and how long it will take. My wife’s the main applicant and myself and my 2 year old will be going as well. Will all of us including my son need a medical? And we live on the south coast, is the only place we can get a medical London? Be great to here if anyone’s recently done this. It’s all going very fast, we sent the skills assessment of and it was approved in one day and now two weeks after sending EOI we’ve been asked to apply, we thought each stage would be weeks and months. Cheers Darren.

    PTE exam

    Hi I think you only need IETLS or PTE to gain points for the visa so it may be beneficial to focus on just one? My wife practiced a lot prior to the exam. There are free practice tests online which first explain how to answer the question and give tips on how to achieve top marks. This really helped. She’s also timed herself as this is a crucial element of the test. My wife also said that you could purchase a mock exam online which might also be beneficial? Best of luck, I hope you gain the scores you’re looking for.

    ICAEW Membership advice

    She left the big company once qualified and didn’t need it when she became a finance manager. We sent the skills assessment of now and they have come back 1 day later with complete full marks!! We were expecting a 4-8 week wait not one day. They accepted all her work experience and didn’t matter she wasn’t a member. This is huge news and a big relief. We can submit our EOI right away and see what the next stage has to throw at us. [emoji846][emoji846]

    I guess we have no choice but get assessed and see what the outcome is and keep everything crossed.

    ICAW was who she did the exams with.

    ICAEW Membership advice

    She’s a ACA chartered and qualified since dec 2012, she didn’t need to join ICAW as she went to work in industry but trained 5 years in practice for a large accountant firm. Our migration agents said it would be best to join ICAW to help, this took a lot of work to do as she had to go back with 5 years of paper work and prof of training etc just to get it but that case through and now we’re ready to send everything for our skills test but they then turned around and said they may not take your work experience because she wasn’t a ICAW member for that time. But we should send it any way. There was no need for her to join at the time and it’s very expensive so why would you bother? I’m hoping this is not true and they accept she has been qualified for several years and all is good but we will just have to see and maybe challenge if it’s not good.

    ICAEW Membership advice

    My wifes a chartered accountant and has been for 5 years but we were told before we send of for a skills assessment she needed to join the ICAEW membership, this took a lot of work going back through all her training records as well as references from employers etc but she got the membership and all was good but now we've been told they might not accept her experience as qualified because she didn't have the membership from the beginning! This felt a massive blow as its took many months just to get this far, we want to go for a 190 state sponsored for New South Wales as the 189 needs 80 points which is impossible. We are now terrified our dreams of a new life in OZ might be over before we've even applied. Has anyone been in this position or knows of any one else thats gone through this? Thanks

    Job offer?

    I’ll pop a message over thank you.

    Job offer?

    We will get her side assessed and go through an agent as they don’t really want to know unless you’ve done this. Just wondered if I can get accessed but not sure if any where does that for my trade and what can I show apart from accounts and a website? Thanks for the advise invaluable. If I could add 5 points she’d be on 80 and stand a better chance.
