    Urgent advice needed re: Ahpra

    Registration with ahpra is one of the requirements for 190 who told you it isn't? I'm not surprised they want it from you. Everything with ahpra takes ages so hope you can sort it out asap fingers crossed!

    Nurses on 189, 190

    Hi there, If you get state sponsored (190) it comes with some conditions, like you have to live in the state that sponsored you for two years (Vic). You don't even have to work in your occupation which is crazy. Unless else specified, you can also live anywhere in Victoria. Check online with different states what are their conditions. Good luck!

    8 months until I become 33 years old

    You should try to increase your language skills to 20 by reaching top marks in either ielts or pte. I'd recommend pte, it's easier. In that way you'll boost your score +10. Once you reach 33 the points for age will be reduced.
  4. I got pre invited by VIC in 3 days. However it really depends on your occupation. I'm surgical registered nurse.

    Medicals and PCC before lodging 190 yes or no?

    Mmm. Okey that makes sense. I was trying to generate my hap id for a new medical just now and surprisingly, there's no option for 190! Should I just go with 189? I think the medicals are same for both visas anyway.

    Medicals and PCC before lodging 190 yes or no?

    Hi Lavers, thank you for your reply! Yes we'd preferably get a direct grant that's why I'm weighing this option. I know my medicals are valid for 12 months but there's still some time left and I also read that it needs to be valid at the time of lodgement which it will be. Good luck with everything! I'm getting there but still have a month and a half of time.
  7. Hi again Just wondering whether submit our medicals and police clearance together when lodging the 190 application? I'm currently in the process of gathering everything for the lodgement and I've read that they actually prefer it this way and I also happen to have my medicals from 8/2018. So it would be just for my partner and then PCC. What's your experience? Also, which police check did you use? I lived in Au before so I'd probably have to do AFP but how about my European clearance? The link on home affairs website didn't work so I'm curious which one you've taken and how much was it? Is there any international check that would include all countries I've lived in? Thank you all so much

    Pay slips translation advice needed

    Thanks Garry! That's what I thought x
  9. Hi all, Could anyone advise me how did you get your pay slips translated for your application? I apply for 190 and don't claim points for experience but still need to provide pay slips for about three years to support my contract. How did you let yours translated? Should I just take a few from every year? Make a table? My NAATI doesn't know either. Any advise appreciated.

    190 VIC refusal

    Hi everyone, Wondering if anyone has an experience with the following: After being invited by Victoria I've received an email from them (after 2 weeks of submitting the application) saying they don't recommend me for 190 visa because I didn't prove that I have a job offer from Victoria. According to their website, this is only a requirement for people wanting to migrate from different Australian state to Victoria. I lived in NSW (left in August 2018) however I applied offshore so this didn't apply to me. It looks like the person going through my application just saw that I have a nsw address on my AHPRA and ANMAC and didn't read the CV where I explain everything. I've written them back right away and waiting for a response. Has this happened to anyone or is it just me having everything complicated lol.

    Nurses invited on 190 VIC?

    Hi everyone, Has anyone been invited by Victoria recently? I'm curious how long is their processing time before they approve and pass on to home affairs, I know they say 12 weeks but any personal experiences? Also, my agent told me that home affairs are quicker with visas for nurses but don't know whether it's true or not. Anyone? Thanks!

    Nurses on 189, 190

    Hi Rebecca, Do you want 190? Meaning you have 65+5 points? If so, no one will tell you how long are you going to wait for the invite. I've heard months to a full year. They generally advise to boost your score to at least 70. Also, I think it depends on your anzco and what are the current shortages in the state. I personally was freaking out about how long it might take but got invited after just three days. I'm surgical though.

    Nurse NSW 190 invites

    I'm so sorry to hear that Pauline. I've read your posts and know you've been waiting for a long time I've said good bye to 198 and got invited for 190 within 3 days! It's still going to be a wait for me though. Good luck with everything

    Nurse Registration

    Hi there, No one in Australia will offer you an RN job without AHPRA registration. The process is quite lengthy and they can be pain in the a** so I would start working on the registration asap.
