    189/190 EOI

    Hi, When creating an EOI I am given the option to tick both 189 and 190 on the same EOI. Does this mean that if I am invited for the 190 I will not be able to be subsequently invited for the 189 from the same EOI or does the 189 part of the EOI remain in the pool? Thanks
  2. Hi all, I'm filling out my EOI for 189/190. In the skilled employment section it asks for my employment history in the last 10 years - do I need to declare each and every position here or only the ones I am claiming points for? I have 7 years experience in my skilled occupation outside of Australia (including just over 5 years in one position) - can I just put down the single position of just over 5 years as that gets me the same points as putting down multiple positions totalling 7 years (trying to avoid having to get hold of and provide sufficient evidence of each position if possible!) Thanks

    Driving tests in WA

    I bought a manual here in WA... apparently they're much less likely to be stolen as so few people know how to drive them.

    Pet air or ladyhaye

    Haven't used Pet Air so difficult to comment on them, but we had a great experience with Ladyhaye and would highly recommend them.
  5. Hi, Wondering if anyone can clarify this please - if we go for a visa medical for a temporary visa and when asked if we intend to apply for PR within 12 months we say yes and therefore are assessed from a medical point of view for both temporary and permanent visa applications, would we find out if we pass the permanent visa medical shortly after? i.e. before actually applying for PR?

    Should we move to WA from SA

    "we don’t feel need for seasons and are quite happy being warm most of the year." We moved to Perth from the UK in January. I too like warm weather for much of the year. I have already found it getting chilly in Perth and it's only April. If you truly want to be warm most of the year and don't mind humidity I'd be looking at QLD/northern NSW instead. I fear you would come to Perth and overtime would end up having similar feelings about the climate that you're having in Adelaide now.
  7. A quick question that the agents on the forum might be able to assist with please Just curious about this update: Thapa v Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs [2021] FCCA 686 Is a valid skills assessment still required to submit an EOI? Is this change more for people who submitted a skills assessment at time of EOI which has expired by the time of visa invite? I'm trying to establish whether if I know my skills assessment will take, say 4 weeks, can I submit an EOI 2 weeks before applying for the skills assessment as I should still be able to upload a valid skills assessment within the invitation period (if invited to apply quickly).

    Depression and visa medical

    Hello, my partner has depression which has been well managed for a long time with antidepressant medication. No hospital admissions/psychiatrist care. We have our medicals for temporary visas in a couple of weeks - would we need to get GP reports for this? I imagine it’s a pretty common scenario for the medicals and as he has never required the care of a specialist not sure if asking for reports is a bit overkill? Thanks in advance

    2 Dogs from UK to Perth

    Currently going through the process of taking one dog from England to Perth. Will cost about £6000 in total, but our dog is a much larger breed. Word of warning, quarantine in Melbourne is currently booked up until May 2023, and the rabies vaccines/bloods need to be done at least six months before dogs can travel, so plan ahead! We're using Ladyhaye who have been brilliant so far.
  10. Hello, We (myself and de facto partner) have applied for 407 visa. Should we upload these forms pre-emptively or just wait to see if we're asked for them? And if we do upload them should just the primary applicant complete each form or do we each need to do each form? Thanks Dan

    ? Criminal record

    Hi, Myself and my de facto partner have recently done our ACRO UK police checks - during the application for these checks we declared that my partner believed he had accepted a caution approx 10 years ago for getting involved in a fight in a nightclub - I was expecting the police check to come back for him as ‘no live trace’ but to our surprise it came back as ‘no trace’ like mine. Perhaps he didn’t actually get a criminal record then - it was a long time and he doesn’t remember much about it. As it shows no trace am I correct in thinking we wouldn’t need to declare the possible caution when applying for a skilled visa? of course had it shown no live trace we were planning on declaring. thanks

    Working holiday visa while other visa pending

    Pretty unlikely that it would come with a no further stay condition?
  13. Hi, I’m due to be moving to Perth early next year and have employment lined up. My employer is sponsoring myself and my de facto partner for a 407 training visa. Unfortunately the wait times for this particular visa mean my start date is likely to be delayed. I am 30 years old. Is there anything that would stop me from applying for a WHV then applying for a 407 visa and commencing my job while on the WHV and awaiting the 407 grant? I understand the WHV has a no further stay condition - but if I apply for the 407 offshore before arriving would this be ok? thanks
