    Help! Ahpra registration as an occupational therapist.

    Hi Nikki, Thats great thanks! I have a positive skills assessment (stage 1) and permanent job offer in Oz..so I think next step is limited reg with ahpra which I will do once my visa is through. Thanks for clarifying the process. Can't believe you got audited the following year , what a nightmare..don't jinx me lol

    Help! Ahpra registration as an occupational therapist.

    Hi , sorry to jump in. Can anyone clarify is the ahpra registration the skills assessment part 1 and part 2 supervised practice? Ie that is all that is required for Full registration? There's nothing separate that ahpra requires of OTs?

    Hi, that is a good point...but luckily it is for a 190 PR visa so all fine on that note but worth pointing out for others reading the post in similar situation. He doesn't pull in any extra funding at all in school and has always been in mainstream (he has 3 years left in secondary school now). He is prescribed medication but that is all.

    Hi For anyone who finds this post in the future and is in a similar situation- just to update my sons medical went through with no issues. It was referred to bupa visa services for 1 day and they passed it with no questions asked.

    190 Visa Grant

    Sorry to randomly jump on this thread but am I right in saying the 190 timeline has changed to 4 months? I'm sure I checked it 2 weeks ago and it was approx 15 months but now states 75% applications processed in 4 months .

    Yes me too. My skills assessment came back really quickly. I have just applied direct to tas for nomination so waiting on that now.

    Hi Sammie I'm an OT applying for a 190 visa in Tasmania. I have a job offer already and am applying offshore from the UK. I am hoping they add OTs to the priority skilled migration list ! I get the sense from my employer that they think things may be processed fairly quickly and have said they're going to state a case for me etc. Best of luck to you!

    Occupational therapist AHPRA

    Hi all Just jumping on this post to say I am a uk based OT with a job offer in Aus (190 visa). I've completed my skills assessment stage 1 with OTC but have been advised to wait to apply for ahpra due to the requirement to present in aus within 3 months, they are extending this timeframe currently due to covid but still not worth the extra stress . I think the ahpra takes around 6 weeks to come through according to the website. Best of luck to you all!

    Job offer

    Hi all Thanks for all the comments..it is great to connect with people that already live in Tas. Thanks for clarifying the clarence thing..I am working in 'clarence' but it looks like we can live anywhere within a 30 min radius. It's so useful to know the good and not do good areas. Bellerive is somewhere we have looked at rentals online. We need a 4 bedroom and theres not much to choose from so we may have to settle for a 3 bed but to be honest we want to buy as soon as we can once we have figured out areas and schools etc. Re. The weather..we are prepared for a climate similar to the UK with less rain so our expectations arent too high and I dont think our children would cope with it being too hot. We also have 2 dogs who are coming with us eventually after staying with my Mum for a bit initially ..so 3 kids and 2 dogs is going to be one hefty move but it will be worth it I am sure. Although I cant believe the price of getting the dogs across

    Hi Toots I am going to be based in Clarence. I'm currently looking at houses, schools etc although it's a bit early yet as I'm sure most of the rentals will be gone by the time we get across. I think the Tas weather will suit us as it won't be too hot but we are of course hoping for a bit more sun and less torrential rain! It really is a huge move and we have never been to Tas before so we are taking a big risk.

    Hiya, Yes so it states on the tas website they are opening up again for state eoi in July and my new employer has also spoken with them and verified this. I only have 65 points but my eoi was selected and sent to the department for state growth in tas which is how I got the interview and subsequent job offer. I'm no expert on visas, I just knew I wanted/needed permanent residency so keeping my fingers crossed it all goes through. It is certainly worth a try and like you say there is no charge. Best of luck! Let us know how you get on

    Job offer

    Thank you all for your comments and experiences. I am very confident it's a genuine offer, I have had all the offer letter through and paperwork etc and they have been great at keeping in contact regarding processes. I've also met members of the team virtually etc and have also linked in with other healthcare professionals who will be working in the region and are awaiting visas. I am having to wait for the state to allow EOIs again (should be july) but I have been told the 190 visa turn around can vary between 30 days and 9 months with the average 190s turning around in approx 4 months at the moment. To be honest that timescale suits me as it gives me time to prepare
