  1. Hi There. My name's Lisa and I am going to be arriving in Brisbane in July 2014. I have family there so will be staying with them, also in Melbourne. I will be looking for fruit picking / farm work to extend my visa to the 2nd year. I will be looking for travelling buddies, and will be prepared to travel to where the work is. So if you are around the area in July onwards, please let me know it will be great to hear from you :cute:
  2. Hi im traveling to sydney in the first week of july 2013. im going alone and just wondering who else will be about?
  3. Hi, just wondering if anybody knows of any changes affecting the 457 visa after the July changes? We are waiting for our prospective employer to pull his finger out and get registered. Just want to know if we have got anything to be concerned about if it goes past july before we lodge our application.:arghh:
  4. Hi All, I just wanted to ask everyone's thoughts on the effect (if any) that the July 2012 visa application changes (EOI) will have on 175 applications that are lodged before the changes are implimented. Looking through recent posts I have seen that some 175 applications have been turned around in 8-10 months which wouldn't be a problem for us. Our only concern is that if we were to lodge a 175 application within the next month or so, and a case worker isn't assigned before the July changes, would the changes delay the processing of the application, i.e. will the new EOI system take priority as these applications could be thought of as being more attractive than an old 175 application? Any thoughts???

    IELTS GSM Points post July 1

    Hi just taking a shot in the dark. Need five more points to be sure cross 65. I got 8, 7.5.7,7 and overall 7.5. Can this score give me 15 points on better english levels. The requirement on new points system is 20 points for a score of 8 in each and 10 points for score of 7 in each. Does anyone know if this exists or is on the discretion of the case officer. Or is it a straight NO. Thanks,

    175 visa - July 2012 changes

    hi does anybody know if the skill-select changes coming into effect in july 2012 will affect 175 visa applications lodged before this date but not yet granted? thanks
  7. Does anyone know if the proposed visa changes next year will effect employer sponsored permanent visas? We are heading over in the next few months on a 457 visa and my employer has said they will permanently sponsor me if evrything is going well after 1 year...just worried now in case these changes come in in the mean time? Thinking should we go ahead with application for 176 now as well as 457 just to be on the safe side? Any advice really appreciated!:wubclub:
  8. Hello all It's my dream to move to Australia one day.... though the sooner the better! I'm currently training as a secondary school teacher (PGCE in ICT) and will finish training in June 2012. I have heard that the rules are changing in July 2012 to make it that you can't apply yourself? You have to be invited? Should I apply before July 2012, even though I don't have any experience as a qualified teacher, or should I wait until I have experience and apply another way? And can I apply again if the first application fails due to lack of experience? Advice please!!

    176 lodged AFTER 1 July 2011?

    Hello! Just wondering if there are many people who have lodged an application AFTER 1 July who have been assigned a CO yet? The new guidelines for processing times say 12-24 months but I read about someone who had a CO two weeks after submitting so wondering if it's just a way to ensure they meet their targets. Can't face another winter in the UK but don't want to go to NZ if there is a chance that it could be only a few months till we get our visa. I know that no-one can answer this for me but am just looking for examples Thanks!:biggrin:

    Medicals Early July.

    Hi poms, Our Medicals shipped to Sydney on 1st of July. But still Medicals status is shown as Required. My agent said that HOC is still processing medical received in early June. Any one knows an update on this? OR Did any one called HOC recently? :wub: Many Thanks, Horizone
  20. All welcome starting in the Establishment on George Street afterwork this Thursday.
  21. WE GOT OUR VISA... :jiggy: Whohoo... champagne in the fridge for the big celebrations tonight... soooooo delighted!!! Thanks to everyone for the help & support "so far"... now the fun begins!!! Sx
  22. I've been on the immi.gov.au website and want to find out if the recent work experience requirement of '12 out of the last 24 months' still applied for a 175 independent skilled migrant visa? The eligibilty requirement was standard before 1 July 2011 and was very clearly stated across the website and within the 175 visa category sections online. It is now gone from the website but does still appear in "Booklet 6" in a contradictory way. Is this because the booklet is not up to date? Any advice appreciated. (I'm an experienced accountant but have been running my own 'non-accounting' business for 2 years - so this is crucial and I may need to return to work for 12 months if it is still required)

  24. Hi we are young family re-locating to melbourne from brisbane and need a month long 2 bed furnished let within a half hour drive from cheltenham. Don't mind if it's flat/villa/house so long as it is clean/comfortable and quiet - not on or near a busy main road or highway or near/overlooking a train/tram track and in a reasonably safe area with on street parking if no spaces. We need somewhere from 24 April for 28 days and our budget is 700-1000$ a week but we would like to see photos before booking. The property will of course be left spotless. We need to sort somewhere asap and will consider most areas if they're within driving distance and on a quiet street. many thanks Rebecca
