  1. Hi, this might be a long shot, but i'm wondering if there's someone who can help. I've spent the past year seconded as a software tester, and I'm due to take on the job officially this month. I was wondering if the past year would count as work experience on my visa application? My job would get me 60 points, and i'd love to save a year working in the UK! Good luck with everyone else's applications, Dom
  2. Was wondering if anyone can help me with a 136 skilled migration question... with the 12 out of last 18 months rule does that 12 months have to be a continuous block or does it just have to be a cumulative amount of months/weeks here and there within the last 18 months??? I do have 12 monthsbut as the majority was done in Oz under a working holiday visa there are gaps of no work in between each job... any thoughts would be much appreciated... thanks a mill Karni
  3. Can anyone help me...am bit confused about the 'recent work experience' and 'specific work experience' requirements for the 136 visa.. Is it true that you need BOTH 12 out of last 18 months AND 3 out of last 4 years??? I have the first but not the 2nd and have 125 points..I dont need work experience refs for my skills assessment so that isnt an issue If anyone can clarify this I would really appreciate it.... Thanks a million..
  4. Hi A fairly simple question I would think but probably a very difficult answer. What are our chances of getting into OZ? My wife worked as an Assistant Housekeeper at a 5 star hotel till the youngest arrived. So no paperwork there. I have never had to worry about paperwork as my type of work is very easy to check if you know what you are doing or not. I started off as a Game Warden in Africa after 15 years I changed direction slightly and have mainly been in the vehicle mechanical side of the Game reserves and game ranches. I can work on diesel, petrol cars 4x4, generator engines, diesel waterpumps and motorcycles. I currently run my own business buying, repairing and selling cars in West Yorkshire. My family and I would be looking at a rural to very rural location, I decided to do a NVQ 2 in Panelbeating (Currently studying) to get paperwork but feel this is not going to be up to the standard they want. Any advice appreciated Thanks

    Work experience and References

    Hi there - I am going through the GSM route and had a query regarding work experience and references. I am gathering the information I need for skills assessment (NIA for accountants) but I am right in that I don't need to send them any employment references? I am an accountant and altogether have just over 5 years experience, but what counts is do I have 12 out of 18 months experience just prior to application right? One of my employers can provide a reference that meets all of the immigration departments requirements (including the 5 main duties and final salary), however my latest employer said they could do a standard reference but not include salary and duties as their HR system does not contain that information (they say I can obtain a Statement of Salary from Payroll - fine). I have contacted my old manager about writing a letter about the job description, but if they don't (stating legal and compliance reasons) but I have the regular reference plus payslips etc will this be sufficient? I also have my contract and terms and references. Also, this year I contracted for one month and I have my initial terms and conditions/contract plus my payslips but no job based reference - will this be OK? Any help from anyone about this will be most appreciated. Sorry if covered elsewhere but I couldn't find exact same query. Thanks

    OZ Experience Prices

    Hey Guys, Im about to fly to Cairns and come back down the east coast to Sydney. I have a couple of mates doing the OZ Experience bus. The pass is called the "Cobber". Anyway, im sure they told me they paid about £150 for it back home in Scotland but when i went to the website it costs like $950!! A friend of mine bought it in a hostel in Cairns for $600. So.....i was wondering if anyone had any ideas how to get that pass for a reasonable price, well, more reasonable than $950!! Thanks. Alan

    Assessing work experience

    I understand that an assessing authority take your qualifications into account when deciding if you meet the criteria for a particular occupation, but at what stage and by whom does your work experience get assessed? Is this proven purely by references from current/former employers? Help, I'm confused!

I have around 24 months experience and a degree in IT, overseas-emigration are saying i need 3 years experience before submitting the application anyone know for sure as workpermit.com's points calculator - you can miss the experience (i.e. 3 out of the last 4 years) off
