    Advice on Visa eligibility

    Thanks everyone, sounds like its worth paying for the full assessment then. I'll look into that and hopefully will know more after!

    Thanks Ausvisitor - we had a few initial assessments done online but the agents coming back were quite vague and wanted to charge a couple of hundred quid to tell us more. I absolutely understand they can't give advice away for free and don't mind paying, but if there was no chance of being eligible then I didn't want to spend it. If you can recommend your agent then let me know and I will try to set up a call with them.

    Advice on Visa eligibility

    OK thanks Paul, that's good to know, appreciate your response. Are you able to advise what other information I need to take into account or research? I've looked at the SA state occupation list and my occupation is on the list but doesn't state any threshold for points. I am not sure how likely it is that I would get state nomination if I put in an EOI. Am guessing as well I could only try for a 491 visa. Sorry, I've done lots of research on the internet but its hard to know in practice how much of a chance I have.

    Advice on Visa eligibility

    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.
