    Travel Exemption Experience

    Hi @Coxy7 we are at the portfolio stage.

    Travel Exemption Experience

    AHPRA have had all the additional documents from us since the end of March. Everyone online appears to be having different experiences of how long it is all taking so there really is no telling at the moment. We are looking at September, if it wasn't for the travel restrictions then it would be June due to the timing of certain things. October 28th is our 12 month deadline on entering to activate the visa. Have you been to Queensland before? I spent some time there on my gap year and worked in Brisbane for a few weeks on my way south. Great city, loads to do.

    Hi, I think we have met on another thread, so apologies if you've said before, but what is the occupation that you have found employment under? Were you successful with an agency as well? If so, which one? Thanks for the message Nic

    Hi @Craig Colas Sorry to hear that you have been unsuccessful with the exemption applications. When you say that your wife's university are dragging their feet; is this over information that you have requested from them or have AHPRA advised you that they are waiting for something? Which university are you referring to? Out of interest, if you don't mind me asking. Which state is sponsoring you? Nic

    Hi @Marisawright Once the AHPRA comes through we are going to start doing just that. I'm just interested in anything anecdotal about what those in our situation have directly experienced. Like many things with governments and official departments, the terminology is never explicit. So then can turn the tap on and off, they have created a few ambiguous tick boxes. One section is "attach any supporting evidence" - I mean, where's the start and end of that category? Funny how you are advised throughout your life to never make assumptions because of what it makes us.

    Hi, Thanks for the info. We don't plan buying after we move for some time so if we are lucky we sell in a UK boom and buy in an AUS slump. If we sell in a boom and buy in a boom then so be it that's the nature of the beast. The catch 22 is that we sell in the UK and take advantage of the better price, but spank too much money on renting (which is out of control over here at the moment also) before getting the green light to cross the border. Alternatively; we don't sell, wait how ever many months and get a reduced price, but save on inflated rents. I don't expect that I would want to buy a permanent residence in SA for at least 6 months if not 12. We need to be sure about the location and probably need to save more towards getting the required 25% deposit for a forever home.

    Hi It isn't explicit but that's why I wanted to put the question out there. We were hoping that Healthcare Australia would be on point to help us with this but, despite stating that they do on their website, they don't have any community health care roles. Still waiting on AHPRA as well and they don't have any timescales, it takes as long as it takes.
  8. My partner and I are at that critical decision stage in our process. The housing market is booming so we want to sell. SA have sponsored my partner as a registered nurse. We are still waiting on AHPRA to grant the registration, so that we can apply for jobs that will support an application for a travel exemption. Visa granted October 2020 and the clock is ticking on activating it. Does anyone have any advice or experiences that they can share regarding the supporting evidence required in order to get the travel exemption over the line?

    Hi @KangaKit We are just at the start of the process having registered on the website a couple of days ago. Obviously there's a long way to go, but it would be good to get a feel for the timescales others are experiencing. Where are you applying from? What stage are you at? Nic

    Received 491 visa grant!

    Received 491 visa grant!

    Congratulations, we got ours through on the 27th. It was much quicker, from submission to grant, than expected (2 months). What state and occupation?
  13. Just wondering if anyone is at the same stage as us. We have just had our 491 visa grant through after being invited by SA at the end of June. Rather quick turnaround on the application, which could be down to the occupation we applied under. What circumstances have people had an exemption granted in order to enter the country on a temporary visa?

    Cheers, saving the champagne for when there's an avenue into the country. We've got until October next year to activate, which brings up it's own challenges.
