    No you don't require to give IELTS again. As long as it was valid at the time of your application, you should be fine!!!

    So many people have had their documents requested in Feb and since then have not heard anything...I guess the department has been busy with their Easter preparation since then...lol Don't expect anything this week and the week after Easter... unfortunately we have to wait till they get back into the mood of working somewhere in the first week of May

    She might be an amazing lawyer but here it depends on luck... there are a few cooks/chefs who have got their visa's approved in 13-15 months and then there are other who have been waiting over 26 months. It all depends on how soon they open your file and who you get as a CO. First I thought it was only a matter of particular states getting approval sooner than others but that's not the case. Marketing and Cooking occupation generally taking the longest in approvals. Let us know when U get your visa - U seem to be lucky!!! All the best.

    Congratulations...that's your ticket to freedom...now you can work for anyone...but stay in the same regional state. If you can't find employment in the same field then only you have to inform DOHA and move otherwise just work for any other employer.

    1985 everyone here is on the same boat all depends on - how well your file is prepared - what's the turnover of the restaurant -what type of RPL are you submitting and how many years experience your showing Generally speaking because its a Chinese restaurant and if there are not many similar Asian cuisine in your area, your chances goes up significantly provided your employer has all proper financial, BAS and showing a healthy turnover. What I mean they have to have clean books nothing dodgy.

    DeepBH, don't worry you should still get visa because for every person sponsored the business must be doing a $4k turnover/week, which is $208k/yr for each individual sponsored with no compulsory salary slab as long as the cook/chef is getting paid similar to others in the same position and not lower than the state minimum wages for that occupation. This rule applied only till the 28th Feb 2018. So if your restaurant is doing $1.8m then 3 sponsorships are fine.

    First I applied in June 2017 187DE Chef then I had problems with the establishment and they cancelled my nomination, then I reapplied as in Feb 2018 with a different employer as Cook 187DE.

    Deoma but I thought immigration said they will settle your file in 21 days...what happened?

    It's just a question of luck...just a few pages back you will see Ricky applied as a cook from Victoria in Feb 2018 and got his nomination and visa in March 2019 - (13 months straight) and Deoma applied since 2016 and is possible still waiting.... So if your lucky with a good CO and they pick your file then you may just jump the queue.

    Yes your MA is absolutely right. You know that there are 2 dates on every IELTS certificate right...one is the date you sat for the test and one is at the bottom when the certificate is issued. Now in my partners case she sat for the test on 9th Aug and the certificate date is 20th Aug. We applied on the 19th August, since I never had an MA and we did all the paperwork ourselves I had to argue my way through convincing them that it was a matter of misunderstanding and should be given a chance to rectify that. After that we were given 24hours to show we have booked the earliest possible date for the test and as soon as that result was released we had to give the ID number for them to check the IELTS score. The whole process was stressful and time consuming. Sometimes it all depends on who is ur CO and how lenient they are. Recently I read an article about a nurse from NSW that she and her husband gave fraudulent documents. The husband has a criminal record and has used false documents to get a passport but are still granted their PR just because it's in the public interest that they are not sent back. I say that's complete bullshit when it clearly states anyone providing false and misleading information will automatically lead to cancellation of their application. I don't know how they are given a second chance. It's so unfair to people who are being refused for bullshit reason and people like them are being allowed in.
