    Diagnostic radiographer TSS visa/ ASMIRT

    I applied directly but as it's a sponsored visa, it depends if a suitably qualified Australian applies for the post. I can only be offered the job if no one from Australia is suitable for the position

    Diagnostic radiographer TSS visa/ ASMIRT

    Thanks for your reply! Good to hear how someone else is going on. I've since found ASMIRT is necessary for overseas so I'm looking to go back I to plain film to do a bit more general and CT, following that AHPRA. But I'm trying to time AHRPA for when I will be in Aus as it's just so far to come just to bring my ID!

    EOI to invite to apply-how long?

    That's for that info! That's great. To be honest, I want to wait until I've had ASMIRT back because there's a chance in going to need to do more back in x-ray and whatever way I go I need ASMIRT

    Oh ok, that's good to know. I wasn't aware of that at all. Thank you!

    That's interesting to know, I have read similar..I'm trying to get back into plain film because of this. I'm a mammographer but I'm willing to drop back down just to get what I need to get to aus!

    EOI to invite to apply-how long?

    Hi, Oh really? I wasn't aware of that. Well I'm currently waiting on ASMIRT (but worrying if that will go through as i specialised after 1 year) and I've sort of been offered a sponsored position and although it's located exactly where I want/doing what I do now, I'd much rather be on a permanent visa than temp and have to faff trying to get a permanent visa after 4 years. Congrats on getting your invite! Does your visa mean you can only work in regional Australia/any other restrictions? Laura

    AHH right ok! Thank you! That makes sense

    Hi,did you get an invite? I'm a radiographer in the same boat, I'll have maximum 65 points but I'm worried I won't even get a look in!

    Thanks for this! Sorry, I have absolutely no idea about all of this, it's so confusing! So does that mean they'll only invite people over 85 points? I had a look at the same site earlier and it lists different professions underneath with 85/90 points (but not imaging) so does that mean they're only looking for the higher points from those select professions? And looking on the 189 page on the immi website it's still saying you need 65 or more? Thanks x

    Yeah, I really should think of it that way, it's just really excessive to come all that way! What do they require you to show? Just your passport? Ok thanks that's good to know..I'll probably be aiming to post it towards the end of the year then tbh, to give myself a good while to arrange coming over! Already got a few holidays booked between now and the end of the year so I don't think I'll be able to squeeze in a week in aus between now and then! Thank you!

    I've never heard/been told about this! Seems like that could be positive news! Sorry to keep asking you so many questions, I'm assuming you don't need AHPRA to apply for 189? I'm trying to leave sending this for a while as working on a 5 month time scale (2 months for approval, 3 months to present in Australia) is Xmas/new year so I don't want to be heading over that way around that time. In your experience, do many places offer conditional contracts (conditional clause of gaining ahpra status) or do they want you to have AHPRA before applying. In an ideal world I would attend AHPRA to show my ID once I've moved over with a conditional job offer so I'm not making two trips! (I'm sure that's everyone's dream!) Thanks!

    The 189 route would be preferable but the agency I've had some dealings with (backed up with a few Google searches) have suggested invites following EOI are only being sent out to those with 80+ points. The maximum I'll have is 65 (providing I get 8s IELTS... second time lucky..8/9 in everything last time except writing ) so the TSS is my back up plan but feels like the quickest option to get over there asap. I'm really keen to work with the company who potentially may sponsor me but even still, being there on a 189 over TSS would be preferable! Where is it that you're working? Laura

    Thanks for taking the time to reply! That's really great to hear, I've did 1 year x-ray and CT before specialising so I have enough post grad experience, and that's how it reads on their website.. but when I've emailed them they've come back with it must be minimum 2 years in CT and general... It's such a long wait to hear back from them! Sent my application and it was received on 20th June so could be up to end of October before I get a reply!! I've been loosely (depending of course if there are any suitable Aussie applicants) offered a sponsored position, but according to immi website the TSS visa needs a positive skills assessment (from ASMIRT) so can't proceed with anything visa wise once if I'm offered the job until I hear from ASMIRT! AHH! Stress! Laura

    Hi, I know this thread is a few years old and things may have changed but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with ASMIRT and what they're looking for on their application? It states you need two years clinical experience post grad on their website, where as I have been told it's 2 years.post gras specifically in x-ray and CT only. I specialised after 1 year so only have one year full time x-ray and I also do bank work in x-ray at the weekends for the last 6 months. I'm panicking now this won't be enough and I'll need to go back to general full time. Anyone got any ideas?? @DukeNinja you seem to be in the know!! Thanks! Laura
