    Hello, I am thinking of applying for registration with AHPRA and was just after some guidance as to what documentation I need to send along with my application. I am a registered surgical nurse with 3 years post graduate experience in the UK and wishing to move to Perth. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Advice please

    I didn't apply for state sponsorship as I would like to go to WA and I only have 2 years nursing experience rather tham the 3 years that WA require. Guess I just have to hope and pray that I get an invite soon..

    Advice please

    Thank you both for replying. I have looked at state sposorship online but am unsure if WA are sponsoring at the moment? I am with a migration agent but am feeling a little dissapointed with them to be honest and wonder if I did the right thing by signing with them.

    Advice please

    Hi, just wondering if any of you can give me advice please. I put in EOI for 189 july last year with 60 points, obviously I am no longer eligible foe the 189 and put in EOI for 489 family sponsorship in January. I have not heard anything and feel our dream may be over before it has begun. Does anyone know of any other options I could try? I am a registered nurse with 2 years surgical experience. I also have 3 children so WHV is not an option. TIA x

    489 family sponsorship

    Hi all, EOI for family sponsored 489 was sent in January 2018 with 70 points. Does anyone have any ideas how long I could be waiting for an invite? I am a registered nurse and my parents live in WA and are willing to sponsor me. I did apply for 189 but due to increase in points required am no longer eligible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Louise

    Advice on state sponsorship

    Thanks for replying. I have been looking at jobs for the last 6 months or so. Many have passed me by as I continue to wait for ITA. I understand it is very competitive for nurses in WA which understandably makes me anxious but I believe I am good at what I do and hope that stands me in good stead for any future employer. Its all very daunting but I do not mind what aspect of nursing I do to begin with once we get there.

    Advice on state sponsorship

    Hi, apologies if this has been asked before. I would like as much information regarding what is involved in applying for state sponsorship. I already have EOI in for 189 with 60 points since July 2017 and 489 family sponsorship with 75 points since Jan 2018. I am using a migration agent but am wondering if I should put in a state sponsorship EOI also? What is involved in state sponsorship and how long would I be looking at waiting for ITA? I am a registered nurse with 1.5 years experience so am degree trained. Looking to get to Perth ASAP with husband and 3 kids, one of which is due to start senior school in September.

    Thanks guys, yes I have a degree and have the minimum 3 months experience. I am also gathering all my evidence. I am just unsure what I actually need to do first? This is what i find so confusing.

    So confused, advice needed please!!!

    Hi guys, I am completely new to the site and am after some advice please. I qualified as a nurse in the UK in September 2016 and am desperate to emigrate with my husband and 3 children to Oz (Perth, as my parents live there). I need to get the process started in order to apply for a 189 visa. However, I am getting myself worked up and confused over what I need to do first? Do I apply for a skills assessment and then registration? Once I have done this do I then sit an IELTS? Please can someone help and point me in the right direction? I have tried searching the posts on here but haven't found any answers yet.:confused:
