Hi, I have been trying to see what our chances are of emigrating to Australia are and have done a few assessments with Migration Agents but they all seem to say something different, and are a bit vague on the details. I am not sure what the best route is and what our chances truly are. Its myself and my partner, and I think I should get the following points.
Age - 15
English - 20 (assuming, I work in communications/PR so would be ashamed if I didn't get this!)
Work Experience - 15
Degree - 15
My partner doesn't have many points as he only have about five years experience, and we've been told that he would need at least a HND in the same field as his work (Community Worker - he's a Housing Officer). He only has a Certificate of Higher Education in Sports Science.
My other question is points for state nomination. If you need at least 75/80 to get state nomination, is that before the state nominates you or do you include 15 points in that total?
Any honest advice is much appreciated. If we don't have any chance, it would be better to know now before we start spending money on applications etc.
