  1. Pass medical?

    Hi Guys My husband has glaucoma and various complex problems with one eye. He is not currently receiving medication or treatment and hasn't for some years. However, he can be in pain and can't see in that eye. I'm wondering would anyone know if this would present a problem with the medical for Visa application? Other than that he is fit and healthy and able to work. Many thanks for any advice, Sam
  2. IELTS - academic or general training?

    Hi Richard Thanks for your reply. Yes I have the university years- it’s just so that I can demonstrate High points. Thanks again. Sam

  5. The process - Expression of Interest

    Hi Thank you. My profession is primary school teacher which is not on the skilled list but the supplementary skilled list for certain states. I will have 80 points. This is harder as I don't know how I find out what their ceilings are and when they will cap the applications for their state. It's all a bit of a minefield. Best wishes Sammy
  6. The process - Expression of Interest

    Hi Thanks for reply. That's very useful. Would you know how soon after submitting you should get an invite and if I don't get one is that the end of the process? Regards Sammy Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  7. Hey guys Can someone please advise whether I can submit an EOI without a skills test. Is there somewhere on the EOI where you have to say that you have done the skills test and attach results etc. I am in the process of doing the skills test but wondered if I can go straight to EOI to save time and then do it later? Also is the purpose of the EOI to tell you if it is worth you applying for the actual VISA? Will they tell you at this point if you don't have a chance of getting one? Bit confused about the early order process. Many thanks for any advice, Sammy Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

  11. Hello all I've been researching and can't find a clear answer online so wondering if anyone can help. With the 489 Visa, will you have to pay for education and healthcare or not? Many thanks Sammy Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  12. Any Teachers Applying Now?

    Hi Quoll Thanks for all of your input - it's much appreciated. I wonder do you work in education yourself as you seem to know a lot about the climate in schools. I wonder do you know of any UK teachers who have successfully made the move and secured a job? Best wishes Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  13. Any Teachers Applying Now?

    Hi, Thanks for the info. So I take it that you are or were a UK teacher in Sydney? Do you mind me asking which Visa route you took and whether you ever managed to get permanent work? Many thanks. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  14. Please help a confused Primary Teacher

    Hi I have found it. It's really useful advice thank you. I will look further into the areas you mention and continue to pursue the 489 Visa route. Warm regards. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  15. Any Teachers Applying Now?

    Hi TeacherClem Thanks for response. I completely agree. It's so hard to know what to expect and very difficult to get to hear from teachers who have actually successfully made the move. I don't doubt that it is challenging to find work as many claim, however to be told it is pretty impossible is very demoralising and I'm feeling pretty stuck about how to proceed. I struggled to find my first teaching post in U.K, seven years ago and it was desperately competitive, but once in a school everything slotted into place. It's just the worry of arriving and struggling to find a job. I would have thought that an international applicant would bring different skills that employers would find attractive and thus we would have some advantage in the job market? All the best with your move. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
