    189/190 VISA

    Hey Guys, I have submitted EOI for 189/190 visa on 17th July with 70 points for Registered Nurse (Critical care & emergency-254415). What are my chances of getting an invitation next month? Has anyone recently received an invite on the same points from NSW? Thanks in Advance!
  2. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I need some clarification on claiming points for qualifications. In August 2018, I received positive skills assessment outcome from VETASSESS for Marketing Specialist occupation. The skills assessment was based on my work experience, and my bachelors and masters degree. However, after positive skills assessment, I received my PhD degree from an Australian university in December 2018. My PhD degree has not been assessed by VETASSESS. I have claimed 20 points for the PhD in my EOI and lodged 190 visa application in Jan 2019. Is it alright to claim points for a degree that was not part of the skills assessment outcome ? I have submitted my PhD degree certificate and transcripts as evidence. I appreciate your help and advice. Thank you
  3. Hi! could you please let me know are there any changes on 190 visa in November 2019? I am planning to lodge EOI and State Sponsorship on July. Then is it affect to November visa changes? Thanks!

    Registered Nurse in Tasmania

    Hello Everyone, We are living and working here in tasmania. My wife has 55 points at this stage. She is going to finish her 1 yr exp and will get 5 pts and from state will get another 5 points. Is it possible to get any positive outcome with this 55+10=65 points. TIA

    Hello everyone My husband and I are looking in to the possibility of emigrating to Australia and are already so confused about the best option, if we even have options that is! My husband currently works for the RAF as an Aircraft Avionics Techincian which is on the STSOL. We've been told by one agent that they're concerned his qualifications in this trade (currently NVQ level) may not be enough to match AQF level 4, but another has said this should be fine. He's thinking about studying for an Aeronautical Engineer degree which would then make him eligible for a 190 visa we believe, but ths is going to take him 3 years....will it still be on the list then?? This is our biggest concern. Also if we apply under the 189 visa, the only state open for his trade is NT, not actually somewhere we'd considered. We've recently spent time in WA and completely fell in love, so really this is where we'd like to end up in the long run. From my understanding, you can move after 2 years in the original state, is this correct? It's all a bit much at the moment and it's a lot of money to start the whole visa process...we don't want to make the wrong decision. I work for the Police which is absolutely no help to the application at all. Any advice anyone can offer would be amazing. Thank you
  6. Hello, I have claimed 65 points on my expression of interest, got invitation for 190 Visa and claimed 25 points on my age as I am 39. But, I have my 40th birthday on next week and I don't think that I can apply for Visa before my birthday. If I apply for visa after my 40th birthday, should I lose 10 points as I moved into 40-44 age group, which has only 15 points or I can claim 25 points as I was 39 years at the time of invitation? Are they calculating points for age at the time of invitation or when apply for Visa? I am bit disappointed as I need to get police clearance and health certificates and don't think that I can apply Visa before my 40th birthday. Thanks Aji
  7. Hi All, I was unable to find any page dedicated for a discussion about what to do after we receive visa 489/190 for SA. This page will be dedicated to all the queries related to, "what next once visa is granted". I recently received my visa sponsored by South Australia post which, I am planning to move to Adelaide with my wife around June end. As I am going to start my journey, I am really glad that I found this page which can help this transition be smooth. As we all know, it's a big risk to leave a good existing job and move to a new country and start everything from scratch which is why, I am a little worried/exited/anxious about how should I plan from here and all of you who are going to reply will play a big role in my upcoming decisions. Just a little bit about myself: I am a Tech-Lead (AWS | Azure | Web (Apache|NGINX) | Python scripting | DevOps) with 7+ years of experience with an IT company. For now, I would really appreciate if someone can guide me with below questions: 1. What is the ground reality of job situation in Adelaide for above skill set? 2. Some of you might know that CV/Resume in India and Australia are very different and I have heard that companies in Australia will first filter the resume (ATS powered algorithms) based on the keyword and it's quite difficult even to get an interview by stuffing your resume with the keywords mentioned in the job description; so what is the best way to make my resume to at least secure an interview, in short, any assistance will be heartily appreciated. 3. I need to rent an apartment in Adelaide and I have heard that we need to have some points (100 points is I know by now) to rent an apartment, so how do I manage to get them? 4. What are the documents I need to get a rented apartment apart from points? 5. What are the best websites/options to search a rented apartment in South Australia(specifically Adelaide)? 6. I will consider my self lucky if an IT person is reading my post and can forward my resume to their HR as I have heard contacts or reference are the best ways to secure an interview. In this case it would really be nice if you could drop me an email: prashu.swaroop@gmail.com Thank you in advance for your time:)
  8. Hi all, Been going through all the threads but none of them seem to address general times for registered nurses. I put in EOI for 70 points including superior English, any idea how long it will be for an invite? I can’t seem to find any statistics on 190 NSW invites at all, only for 189 visas. Thanks so much in advance, want to get back to oz so badly!

    Estimated Processing Time

    Estimated Processing Time, 75% processed in the lower time currently 7 months and 90% processed in the longer time of 8 months. Does anyone have any idea what happens to the other 10%. our own application was submitted and paid on 22/12/17 we were asked to get police checks and medicals done in march then in june was asked for a subject access request certificate which was actually provided in march when the police certificates were done but went ahead and did same again, this was uploaded to immi account on 10/06/18 and heard nothing since. checked with acro and was told that immigration have not been in contact with them and if they do now its to late as police checks are out of date. have phoned DIBP countless times only to be told its being looked at, tried emailing gsm.allocated@homeaffairs.gov.au which is the address i have been given when calling but have only ever received an automated reply. The thing that really is getting to me is there does not seem to be a maximum length of time its as if for the 10% that are not dealt with within the specified time are ignored
  10. Hi all, I thought I would start a new topic for people with 189/190 visas lodged in the months of November and December 2017, in order to share our timelines and experience with the process. We lodged our 189 visa on the 22nd December 2017 and haven't heard anything back yet. We are hoping we can get a direct grant (without CO contact) since we front loaded all the required documentation and also because the lodgement was done via a migration agent so we are confident on the application being correct and complete. We were hoping we could get a grant by the start of March but we have seen today that the processing times on the Home Affairs website have been significantly increased (from 5-8 months to 9-12 months) so we are a bit upset about this. If anybody around here has similar timelines it would be great to hear your experience. Thanks Cristina

  12. Hi Guys, Wondering if anyone has been able to get 190 visa from the NT as a Marketing Specialist. The Occupation is not on the NT occupation list but can still be applied for since it is on the Short term strategic occupation list. Cheers,
  13. Hi there! I am currently in year 2 studying occupational therapy in the UK. I'm looking ahead at what visa I could apply for when I graduate in June 2018 and the 189 Skilled Independent visa could be an option. I know that I need a minimum of 60 points and there's one question I'm not sure what I would fall under, which would mean that I meet the points or not: Qualifications A Bachelor degree from an Australian educational institution or a Bachelor qualification, from another educational institution that is of a recognised standard. 15 points. Does this mean from another educational institution in Australia?
 An award or qualification recognised by the relevant assessing authority for your nominated skilled occupation.
 10 points When I graduate I will get awarded a BSc in Occupational therapy, therefore will have a Bachelor qualification from the UK of a recognised standard and also recognised by the relevant assessing authority in Australia. I would also be applying as a graduate with no experience apart from my placements, but meeting the minimum 60 points if the answer to the qualification question is the bachelor degree. Is being a graduate with no work experience likely to make the visa more difficult to get? Has anyone got any recent experience as a graduate occupational therapist or a similar experience? Many thanks, Eloise
  14. Hi Just starting a new thread for anyone who has applied for a PR visa 189/190 after July. Mine is in - 190, State Nomination in QLD (onshore) with 80 points. Medicals booked next week. Still waiting for Aus post to deliver what are presumed clear background checks from U.K. Like everyone else, hoping for a quick turnaround ?

    190 visa - job offer?

    I've recently had a 189 visa EOI lodged through my visa agent under '233914 Engineering Technologist' which is likely to take time to go forward as the quota for this is full until July, so to hedge my bets I plan to also lodge an EOI for a 190 visa for Victoria. The agents have said Victoria are very picky and reject a lot of cases, so suggest it may be helpful to try to get a letter from potential employers either showing interest from them or actually of being offered a job. I've done so and applied for jobs/contacted employers with no real success. I was wondering if anyone else has experience of getting a positive/negative outcome for a 190 Victoria visa, and can advise how important this letter is, bearing in mind time is not on my side for various reasons? Is it worth just going forward with the application as-is, bearing in mind I have 70 points? Thanks in advance
  16. Hi all, First post so apologies if I'm doing it wrong. My partner and I are trying to work out when to apply for my visa (she has a Aus passport) and part of the problem is we don't know when we want to move. I've been weighing up the options between a skilled visa and a partner visa and would ideally like to apply and get the visa and then decide when to move. Does anyone know how flexible this is? Would I have to touch down in Oz and register within a certain time period, either for the 190 skilled visa or the 100 Partner visa? Thanks for any help in advance.

    Question about NT nomination

    Hello everyone, I'm just starting the NT nomination process. I need some clarification. After submitting the EOI successfully, do I need to wait for some approval before proceeding with my NT nomination application? From what I read, there doesnt seem to be a reason to wait if I have all docs ready for NT nomination application. Any clarification on this would be appreciated. Thanks
  18. Hi I‘m a 457 holder, and I have submitted a 190 visa last week. I need to travel back to my country for my family next month. And my employer might cease my 457 visa if I leave the job. Will it have any impact on my 190 visa application? if I need to stay overseas about 4 months, what should I do? Hope someone can give me advice, thanks very much!

    verification in visa 190 subclass

    Hi, i am not claiming my work experience point in my visa application. I am still doing my business in the same field. How much chances are there for the physical verification by case officer.
  22. Hi, I live in India and had spent 13 months in Netherlands. I have now been invited to apply for 190 visa. I was just wondering what is the procedure for getting the Netherlands PCC done. Can anyone please share their experience who has stayed in Netherlands and got it done. I am currently lost and do not know how do I go about getting the PCC done. Anyhelp would be highly appreciated. Thanks. JBB.
  23. Hi there, I wondered if anybody had experience of applying for skills assessment with Vetassess for a HR Adviser when they were a recruitment consultant (or vice versa)? On the Australian Skills Recognition Information (ASRI) on the immi.gov.au website Recruitment Consultant and HR Adviser are listed separately. However, on the WA State skilled migration occupation list (those the State will sponsor) HR Adviser is on the list while Recruitment Consultant is not - meaning I could get state sponsored for HR Adviser but not Recruitment Consultant. They are grouped together on the immi.gov.au website under UNIT GROUP 2231 Human Resource Professionals, with very similar responsibilities/skills. I wondered if anybody had experience of applying for a role as a HR Adviser while being a Recruitment Consultant (in job titles) or vice versa, or if anybody had opinion or experience of Vetassess assessing two very similar occupations? Any help or advice would be much appreciated! We score very highly for other reasons, its just the difference between HR Adviser and Recruitment Consultant that is confusing. Thanks! Chris

    Emigrating as a seafarer ??

    My partner is a ships engineer and we want to emigrate. His skill is on the list but to be skill assessed he has to actually travel to Australia on a visitors visa to resit an examination which was "probably one of the worst experiences of his life", the oral exam for class 1 certificate. It seems grossly unfair that most persons get assessed in the UK i.e brickies have to lay bricks, Carpenters build a wall or something similar, both in front of independant examiners. They have to prove their qualifications same as those who have degrees have to show their documents. He has documentary evidence of every days work he has ever done on board ships, a UK government qualification and an agreement exists between UK and Oz to recognise each others standards and qualifications but he still has to go there and resit the oral, this will cost us £1300+ with accomodation, exam fees etc. before we even begin the application process - no pressure !! It's like asking an accountant to go all the way there to resit his accountancy degree !! Anyway, bitching about the process won't help. We need to know if anyone has been through this process whether the oral is a full blown chief's oral or a more laid back chat about the persons experience and knowledge ? He is undecided whether it's actually worth going through with it because he is not fully confident of passing the oral again despite being 2nd/Chief for a good number of years. Has anybody been through this ? What is your experience ? I hope someone out there can offer some advice. Thanks
