    @Hisham Khan This is only my suggestion, as our company usually needs to supply evidence to show that Formwork Carpenters are related to the sponsored Carpenter occupation. We have supplied this up front as per MA's request, and never needed anything further. (Speaking from employer point of view, as they have lodged many other successful nominations - mine is still 'received') A letter from the employer listing your duties as a field scoper, finding likeness where possible to the duties of an Electrical engineer. I'm not sure of either occupation/role, but it could be worded to say that your job entails the duties of both occupations and that a field scoper is a specialist role within Electrical engineering. A role that the company requires you to fulfill. This request from CO is to help them understand the roles and responsibilities of the occupation. They could be just like me, and be completely clueless to those jobs. As always though, the best advice will come from an MA who has dealt with similar requests before.

    @tayfunI gave my experience of the accountant letter to a member on page 1918. I've copied it here: The accountant letter submitted (and approved by MA) for our nomination mentioned the following: - Full trading name and abn of business - Stated how long the accountant worked for/with the business (if it is 3rd party accountant) - business' current trading stability and future prosperity (in our case, the construction sector, mentioned ongoing and upcoming projects and their approx. dollar value) - mentioned the sponsored employee and confirmed the business will remain profitable for employment of the sponsored person for at least 2 years It was less than a page by time they add in all of the usual letter formalities. This is what we used, and our MA approved.

    Hi! Question re: training benchmark B for nomination (TRT) We lodged nomination in May, and supplied evidence of training that well exceeded 1% of payroll (via an apprentice), From 2014 - March 2018. The MA says that the training benchmark was scrapped in August and so I must meet training benchmark B from March - August 2018. The company did not have an apprentice during that period (it has one again now but that's seemingly irrelevant), and I am wondering how significant will that small period will be in my nomination? The company could supply invoices for training courses (but they're subsidised and would not meet the 1%; and only minor courses so maybe not count as evidence anyway) Looking for thoughts.. Also - did the org charts you provided name all employees, or just the nominated employee?

    Would this slow down the process? I thought they would send you request for more information? My police certs have expired about 3 weeks ago and I haven't updated yet..

    Hi Everyone! I haven't posted in so long, and never on this thread I don't think. Carpenter transitioning from 457 to PR with defacto partner Employer Nomination lodged 30 Apr 2018 Visa Application lodged 08 June 2018 No news since. State WA 457 commenced May 2015 Carpenter colleague applied for both EN and Visa in Feb 2018, and EN approved June 2018. No word on his application since either. Happy to be added to the spreadsheet

    Lodging PR (457 transition) without help of an agent

    @NinaMKD Hi Nina! Not sure why you can't send me a message. Anyway....... We got an agent to help with the Employer Nomination, she requested all docs and I prepared and sent them to her for upload. That was submitted about 2 weeks ago. We are continuing with the rest of the application ourselves - as of last night we reached a final draft on the application, and will submit, pay and upload docs this evening. I am hoping once submitted it will be similar to the 457 defacto application, whereby it suggests documents to upload in each category. We have both completed Form 80's, have all docs relating to partner's skills and work experience (not sure if these are required again, think they are), and have sufficient documents to support 1 year defacto relationship in the form of lease agreements, car ownership, joint bank accounts and holidays. Here's the link of the checklist for both Employers and Applicants https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/186-#tab-content-1

    Hi All Congrats to those who have received approvals - it's quite a long road! A migration agent has lodged our employer nomination 2 weeks ago, and now we are going to lodge the application ourselves. My partner is being sponsored, and I am his defacto. Can someone please help and tell me how to go about lodging the application?? Is it on immi account? And if you have a list of docs to upload that would be awesome.

    Lodging PR (457 transition) without help of an agent

    Been MIA for a few weeks - thank you all for the responses. I am definitely going to pursue our application without an agent, but am wondering does anyone have knowledge of lodging the Employer Nomination piece? Our Employer uses a really expensive agent and they're happy for me to lodge it myself on her behalf without the agent - but would like to know a bit more about it if possible. Also with Q.35 of the Form80, have you visited Aus before? I arrived here in 2016 on WHV and have not left (apart from holidays). Do I tick 'yes' and list the previous visa leaving departure date free? I'm sure there's plenty here in the same boat
  13. Hi My partner has been sponsored by his employer since May 2015, and they are willing and able to nominate him for PR. I also work for the same employer (not sponsored as I am his defacto) and will end up preparing all documentation an agent requests - this is why I would consider lodging it myself without an agent. Has anyone here done this before and can offer some advice about documentation required etc..? Or tell me I'm completely nuts and should not continue without an experts help.

    EOI

    Hi Did your receive an invite on 06/09?? I'm a secondary teacher with 60 points, submitted 23/06 and hoping for an invite in the next round or two!

    60 points 189 visa

    Hi GMDream No invite yet - have 60 points EOI lodged 23/06 for Secondary Teacher. I have seen on other forums quite a few 65 point invites for non pro rata occupations! Fingers crossed we will get the call in the next round or two. When did you lodge EOI? Also I feel you should push up to 65, I will be automatically changed to 65 after 29/09 as I jump to a better age bracket (seldom one is happy about getting older! ) and was advised that it is always better to be in the 65 pool than the 60 point pool, regardless of where you are in the pile.
