    Pet Travel Scheme

    Hi I have heard that if we register our dogs with the "Pet Travel Scheme" before we go to Oz we would be able to avoid the 6 months quarentine if we decide to return to the UK. Has anyone done this or know if this is true? Ali x

    Capital Investment Scheme

    Our application was, it seems, this far from being approved when *this* happened: Capital Investment Scheme for pre-1 September GSM visa applications Prior to 1 September 2007 GSM visa applicants could earn 5 bonus points if they deposited at least $100,000 in a designated security for a term of not less than 12 months. The NSW, Queensland and NT Treasury Corporations and the SA Government Financing Authority had been State and Territory authorities participating in these arrangements (the Western Australia Government withdrew from 1 July 2007). Each of the participating States and Territories have notified the department of their withdrawal of support for the use of treasury bonds for this purpose. This means that no State or Territory will issue a security in which an investment is a ‘designated security’. There is no compulsion on States or Territories to participate in the scheme. Whether the State or Territory government authorities actually issue a security is ultimately a matter for them to determine. The new visa arrangements for the GSM Programme introduced from 1 September 2007 did not include the provisions for the lodgement of designated securities. The closure of the arrangements will only affect visa applications lodged before 1 September 2007. (Source: What's new? – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration) We have been told by our agent that ours is one of 4500 applications currently shelved 'indefinately' until this is resolved. However the immi website doesn't mention anything about things being resolved, only that all states have withdrawn from the scheme. We wonder just what is actually happening with regard to the scheme and, more importantly, our application. Is anyone else affected by this? If so, have you been told anything of use? We have been adviced to consider re-applying in order to speed things along which is a pain, as the GSM criteria under which we applied last April have changed, so a re-application has to be done from scratch; skills assessment and all. Thanks.
  4. I am a french chef applying for a "general skills migrants"(visas 136) and heard that it is possible to apply at the same time for an employer sponsorship visas (ENSOL) as I have 1 or 2 jobs offer. This would allow me to get to melbourne quicker and to wait for my Visa 136 application to go through at the same time. Can anyone tell me if this is true ? My other query is that if I get a sponsorship from an employer, would that tie me down to that employer or would I be able to change employer after a certain time? Thanks for your attention.
