    The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    Hi John I'm with nationwide in the UK and want to transfer funds to Aus (I have an NAB account but it seems like ANZ have better rates?) How and who would you recommend at the moment to get best exchange rates and lowest fees? I've heard to forex but am not sure the best way to continue. Many thanks in advance Kat

    EOIs and skillset vs sponsorship

    I spoke to the Aussie border agency who said I could but it had to be an official volunteer position and could not be for longer than 6 months?
  4. Hi everyone, I'm new here. I hope its ok to start up a new thread like this.... I contact a MARA agent to help with the confusing and ever changing visa situation. His help was invaluable. Unfortunately my occupation (student Counsellor) is now only on the STSL but it is on the QLD list of occupations shortages. I asked about doing an EOI for QLD (with a view to a 190 visa) and this was his reply: While you can complete an EOI and in theory be selected from SkillSelect by an employer interested in your skill set, in reality this is government rhetoric and there is no reliable evidence to show that this process works. I wondered what people thought and whether anyone on here has or knows someone who has been successful via EOI and skillset? Instead I'm going out to volunteer in a community centre (ie proper volunteer position) on a tourist visa and see if I can find a sponsor. If anyone also has any advice on getting sponsorship whilst in Australia I'm all ears! Many thanks Kat
