  1. Hi all, I’m hoping to hear from other forum members about their experience with State sponsorship from NSW. We have put an eoi in for State sponsorship from NSW (190), Secondary school teacher, on the 22nd of August with 65 points (including state sponsorship points) and I wonder how long others had to wait for an invite? My husband’s points are 25 for age, 15 for Education and 20 for English. The short(er) version of our story is that we lived in Perth for 14 months (on a student visa) till last March but had to leave Oz because our visa ran out and we didn’t receive an invite for the eoi we put in for Family Sponsored 489 (WA) or the 189 skilled independent (not enough points after they changed the minimum required points). Since then we’ve been back in the UK but can’t wait to return to Oz asap. We have recently put in an eoi for NSW as well, as they don’t seem to invite anyone for the Family sponsored visa anymore ? And from what I’ve been reading they need lots of teachers in regional areas in NSW, especially science teachers and we are more than willing to go country so I am hoping we will receive an invite soon. But sometimes I am losing all hope of ever returning as they seem to change the rules constantly... Thanks for “listening” ? and looking forward to hear other people’s experiences.

    189 vs 190

    Hi guys, brand new to this site so still finding my way around so hope I’ve done this correct. A friend and I have just finished our PGDE in England in science and maths and are wondering whether it would be best to go through the 189 or 190 route? I’ve research a little bit into this and was wondering if anyone could clarify why you receive an extra 5 points(taking us to 70) for doing the 190 and is there a catch (I.e. have to work in really regional areas?). Has anyone had much luck with either route and any experience with the process would be really helpful. Also if anyone has has any advice on the AITSL evidence document you have to provide which needs to contain the number of days supervised teacher etc etc that would be really appreciated. thanks in advance guys
  4. I didn't put any work experience in the EOI and I've received an invitation for 190 visa. I was asked to fill up the employment history in the visa application "Have you employed for the past 10 years". If I put my 10 years experience in the application, will there be any problem or my visa denied ? ( i have only non-skilled 10 years experience and it doesn't have any points). Please any expert please please help me. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi guys Firstly Happy 2019! New year new hopes... right! This is an all new topic. I am hoping to get advice as well as be able to assist someone out there or answer a few of their questions. GOAL: My husband and I want to migrate to Australia this year under 189/190 or 489. (It will be returning for me) Background Myself: Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science in Perth Western Australia -graduated 2015 but degree was not AIMS accredited (Had a scholarship so not much of a choice). AIMS assessed me as a Medical Laboratory Technician ANZSCO 311213 AS OF July 2015. Husband: Bachelor of electrical Engineering in Russia (Seeking Engineers Australia advice on his degree) also graduated 2015 Both returned to our beautiful country in Africa and having been in formal employment since 2016 Current Status 1. Waiting to sit IELTS in March 2019 2. Thereafter, apply for our respective skills assessment Will be sure to keep this topic update to date. Hoping for the best!
  6. From the research we have done we are looking at 189, 190 or 489 visas. My wife is currently an English secondary school teacher in the UK. She has a Masters Degree, her PGCE and is now working full time but doesnt have three years experience. She has 25 points due to age (36) Through online points calculator my wife has 40 points (age 25, education 15) and has booked up the IELTS course which we believe will provide another 20 (at least is should with a Masters in English...and it will if is has to be retaken!). I am now under the impression that 60 points is no longer enough for a 189 but if we opt for 190 or 489 we would gain the extra 5 points through state sponsorship. My wife has a sister who is a permanent resident living in central Perth so I dont know if that will give us another angle in. I run my own tiling installation company and have done so on a self employed basis for the last 6/7 years. My practical skills in these areas are minimal as I project manage so I am not sure if I qualify for skills assessment as a wall and floor tiler which I believe would get another 5 points. If the assessment is on paper i'll pass, if its practical I wont!! Our aim to is to get this through ASAP due to our ages (36 and 37) so we are not concerned which visa we get including if it means going regional. I would also be interested if there is a visa option I have missed and/or if there is a quicker way of getting across. Permanent residency is the end goal so any visa that we get initially would need to allow for this. I'm of the impression that using an agent would be beneficial in cutting down on time with regards submitting paperwork correctly, would you agree? Sorry if this is a bit long but some advice would be great!

    190 Invite Darwin

    Hi, Not too sure if this thread has already been created but, has anyone received an invitation for SC 190 visa for Northern Territory? From what I have read so far, 190 invitations are rarely issued and 489 invitations are the more common. Also, 190 invitations are only given out if there are 'exceptional circumstances'. Appreciate any feedback/help!
  8. Hi all, I have not been here for a while. My 190 visa expired and I got 155 resident return visa. I still plan to move to AUS, I just had some bumps on the road to make it happen in the last 5 years. First question Now, I want to activate my 155 visa soon. Am I still obliged to visit the sponsor state of my 190 visa? / or I can activate my visa by landing anywhere in Australia? Second question Do I have any obligation regarding my 190 visa anymore (it expired)? Over the last 5 years, I think I changed my mind about the state where I want to live. Do I still have to permanently move to the sponsor state (for 2 initial years)? THANK YOU!
  9. Good Morning folks, I hope everyone is doing very well. I am pretty new to this valuable forum and would like some help from the helping forum members. I intend to apply for the skill assessment for Hotel or Motel Manager. As it is not a trade skill, there is no practical exam, I am just wondering if they conduct any sort of interview or something for us to be prepared for. I do understand the importance of precise documentation, fulfilling their requirements. If anyone has any experience with Vetasses regarding Hotel or Motel Manager skill assessment and would like to share the process and experience, it will be very very helpful. Looking forward to hearing from you .....

    Documents to submit for 190 Visa

    Hey Guys, I am Chef by profession and have over 8 years of experience. For my EOI i didn't claim any points for employment. I got nominated by NSW. During the submission i provided my detailed resume. Do i still need to provide documents for the work experience, even though i didn't claim any points for the same and marked it as irrelevant on my EOI. Additionally NSW didn't ask for any employment documents and assessed my application in half a day.
  11. Hi everyone, this is my first post here, I'm a pastry cook and 462 visa holder. I have more than 5 years experiences so I want to apply 190. I've submitted skills assessment online application yesterday, but I found I chose wrong visa type, and I don't know which one is correct, is that someone can help me? I already sent email to vet but no response cause weekend :(

    190 Tasmania

    Hi everyone, I received the 190 invitation from Tasmania on 15th August 2018 and applied for visa on 10th October 2018. Police checks were done in advance (I had to get police certificates from four different countries) but medical has not been done yet. I want to know that if I get my medical done a couple of months late (closer to 1st CO contact which is presumably somewhere near 3 months mark ) will it effect my application's validity i.e. will it push my application back in the queue or will it remain at the same place. Please Guide Thanks in advance

    QLD 190 has requirement for wage?

    Hey guys, I have just been offered a job as junior quantity surveyor, and the salary is in the minimum level of Australia, only $19 hourly. I am planning to apply for QLD 190 visa after 6 months of working. Does anyone know whether QLD 190 has any requirements for the applicant's wage? There are some guys told me that I should get the job having salary in "market rate" for the state nomination. Is that true? Anyone has idea on it? Thx :))
  15. Hi guys, Kinda New to this forum. Anyway, I'm about to start my own business as an independent Civil Engineering Draft Person. So I'm wondering if I can get work experiences from this to apply in 189 or 489? FYI, I graduated and this skill is in SOL list. Thanks in Advance
  16. Per 10 Sept 2018, Vic has announced that 457 visa pathway to 190 has been removed. I hold 457 visa and have 3 years exp in Australia. But currently, my application is still under skill assessment. Does anyone have the same problem? I currently only have 65 points. So this pathway was really helpful and really... I feel desperate now I don't think as a software engineer with 65 points is enough :-(

    Hi. I am new here, so please excuse me if I am repeating I am planning to apply for skilled visa (189) as a high school maths teacher. 1. I see that cost is AUD3500. Is it payable after confirmation of the permit? Or is it non-refundable fee which needed to be paid for application? 2. Should I better try first get a position? (I think 190 skilled visa)

    Notary Public Attestation

    Hi, Is it mandatory to get the copies of all of your documents ( passports, birth certificates, employment references etc) attested by a Notary Public while applying for the skilled visa (190).? I have already got my docs attested by a Notary public, but my agent is insisting to get the contact details stamped on each paper. This can be a difficult task as most Notary public in Pakistan do not have a chamber or office, and they just sit on a make shift bench outside the court. Please guide me, as this issue is becoming very annoying. Thank You Kaleem

    AITSL

    So... after chasing my PGCE uni for final transcripts they’ve finally admitted they never produced them and have to formulate one due to number of students requesting them, this will take 10 WEEKS- I want to submit and EOI before Christmas! I spoke to AITSL last week before I knew this and they responded with ‘AITSL May consider a statement from the awarding institutions explains why the transcripts are not avaliable.’ Has anyone had a successful assessment with this?
  20. Hi all, OK first post... hopefully someone can help me out and maybe put my mind at rest (or not). Im a mechanic, 26, with qualifications and experience (carried out apprenticeship with VW), i gained my qualifications 7 years ago. Im applying for permanent residency soon and my main concern is with the vetassess interview via video call, i would really like to hear from people that have experienced this part of the process. I know myself i'm capable of doing my job but with it being years ago that i was last trained, and often rarely encountering some of the aspects of what i was originally trained in day-to-day, i'm worried what they will ask me and whether i will have the correct answers for them to pass! I am worried mainly about questions on testing electronics, auto gearboxes... areas that i haven't had much to do with, things that i know i could repair but still i'm worried about answering questions on them. i have read a couple of threads on a similar topic but the only answers i came across was people saying 'don't worry, its not actually that bad'........... i'm still worrying! lol I guess i would love to hear from someone who has done the interview as part of there process and to explain what it was like in a bit more detail... Is it hard?! What sort of questions would they ask? How in-depth do they expect you to go? How would they ask them? Is it more of a conversation than a test? How long dose it take? How would you recommend i prepare? Im not trying to worry too much but it just feels to me like this would be the deal breaker of the whole application! If anyone feels like they could help me out, it would be much appreciated! Thanks, James.
  21. Hello everyone, Can someone please help me regarding getting a police certificate from Germany. I have read the information available on internet and on their official site, but has someone actually got the certificate from Germany? If yes, then please share the procedure and your experience. Any guidance will be appreciated. Regards
  22. HELLO everyone I got my second assessment outcome for the hope to be invited for 190 NSW for the occupation electronic instrument trades worker (general) 342314 on 6th march and submitted an eoi for nsw 190 visa. my previous assessment was electronic instrument trades worker (special class) 342315 that wasn't on the NSW list. I am claiming 60+5 points, (having pte academic +65 score). this is about 2 weeks I am waiting to be invited for nsw but a little I am disappointed !!! do you think I should try for pte academic +79 that is somehow difficult for me or wait for more? how likely am I going to be invited? is there anyone with the same occupation and points? thanks
  23. Hello everyone I applied for Tasmania state sponsorship subclass 190 in June. On July 25th, I received an email from Tasmania state department, saying that they will be sponsoring my subclass 190 application. Moments later, I received another email with the title "Decision on your application". In this email they confirmed that I will receive an invitation form SkillSelect for subclass 190. However, when invitation arrived on the same date from SkillSelect, it was for subclass 489. Now I am confused. Is it a mistake, or the applicants who receive Tasmania state sponsorship only get subclass 489 invites? Shall I contact Tasmania and SkillSelect to get further clarification? Please help.
  24. Hi everyone, I am currently under SC485 visa and paying for OVHC to fulfil the 8501 visa condition (Maintain adequate health insurance). Recently, I lodged SC190 visa and received interim (blue) Medicare card. My question is Does the interim Medicare can fulfil the 8501 visa condition? I have been asking around about this i.e. go to immigraion office, call immigration hotline, ask the insurance provider... but seems nobody know how it exactly how it works. What I found is here: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/485-?modal=/Visas/supporting/Pages/485/Acceptable-evidence-of-health-cover.aspx --------------------------- Acceptable evidence of health cover When you apply for your visa, you must either: produce a valid Medicare card or receipt of enrolment with Medicare, or provide evidence that you and anyone included in your application have arranged health insurance in Australia. --------------------------------- Cheers, Phoenix

    What would you do...

    What would you do; I was offered a job sponsorship under a 482/TSS visa back in April, the company have various locations and it took a while but they nailed down a location and put me in touch with their location managers. Bear in mind this is all while i'm in the UK waiting on news...They then tweaked things three times so despite still wanting to put me in NNSW/South QL i got changed to three different potential locations and three different managers, all of whom were awful at communication. Anyway, the communication was few and far between and then complete radio silence - it was absolutely gutting. Then, after about 6 weeks of silence the person that recruited me called with a massive apology and saying they've had a lot of issues with area managers and visa changes affecting where they can send me and they offered me Adelaide, Townsille or Cairns. The day before they called we went ahead and paid a retainer to a migration agent to start a 489 process for NT as my girlfriend's job is on the list. I've now had another call after emailing to say i preferred Townsville. The call was the company saying they can get the ball rolling with a 482 for Townsville if i want it. SO the dilemma is; 482 in Townsville meaning that in 6 months we can apply for a 190 in QL should her job stay on their 'on shore list' or stick with the 489 for NT and forget the sponsors because of how they've messed me around. I'm really stuck because my heart says sack off the job but my head says it's a way in to the country and a 190 in QL, a 489 in NT means we'd have to live there and we never visited NT and it's clear that it isn't the easiest place to settle and find work.
