  1. Hi everyone. Heard a rumour today, that later in the year they are giving an extra 5 points to people with fluent english. If this is so i will not need to pledge $100 to get my 120 points.So sounds good .Any truth in it.

    do i have enough points ?

    hi guys, im now getting concerned and worried after reading some past threads that i may fall down on the points awarded for a 136 visa. I thought being a nurse i would be ok but now im not so sure. In my own right i have 110 points is this enough? Im also a bit confused as to wether i can count husband in the total as he is 46 and not allowed to be assessed but can i have points for him being a native english speaker or iam i just not allowed to included him at all???:confused:

    Points To Gain Entry Into U.K.

    Have you all heard on the news that next year the goverment are going to be doing a points system for gaining entry into the UK, we said why are they waiting til next year and not doing it now. Does that mean if we get our sponsor visa for temp residency and time is up but cant get perm residency, if we dont get enough points to come back can we stay in OZ :jiggy: :biglaugh: :twitcy: Lynne XXXXXXXXXXXX
  4. Hi I could apparently get 5 bonus points for my skills assessment because of my German language skills. How do they know I'm on the level? Can they assess this? Do I get to chat with someone? Or do they require certificates? Because I haven't got any. I don't think having a certificate means you can really speak fluently anyway. Besides which it's been a while since I used it and I'm getting rusty. Does anyone else have any experience of this?

    Points mean prizes

    Just had an email from hubby who has been told by the ICCA that there are now an extra 10 points being awarded to chartered accountants, but how long it will stay like that is in the god like hands of DIMIA.
  7. I've just read in the rough guide that car rental companies insist on a clean license.. This could seriously affect our mobility in Oz. I have got 6 points on mine :oops: Anybody have any experience, please? I know I can trade my U.K. license in for a clean Victorian one, but wouldn't I need a fixed address for that, or could I use our short-stay apartment address? HELP :!:
  8. Just me being a worrier! We have appointed agent and been accessed for SIR - sponsored by SA government............We just have the right about of points - however, I am SO worried that the points will change before we actually lodge our Visa and that it'll fall through! Can someone just put my mind at rest and say that if any changes were going to come that we would be given some sort of notice........ .....hope so, as told everyone and my every waking hour is now being taking over thinking about oz.....also becoming obsessed with these forumss(adelaidebrits aswell) - its giving me headaches and cold sores and cannot think straight!!!!!! sarahxxx

    What are the chances of the Skilled Independent pass mark being reduced from 120 to 115? Cheers
