  1. Hi Friends, I am a specialist doctor and need some guidance on 189 or 190 visa application. I completed my specialty training from India and applied to AMC & RACP for assessment of my training/education. RACP found me fully comparable to an Australian trained specialist and after completing 12 months of peer-review practice, I got my specialist registration. Now I want to apply for 189/190 visa. I want to claim points for my previous work experience in medicine & the specialty field. I checked Govt immi website and it says assessing authority is Medical Board of Australia. But on Medical board website, there is no mention that they will assess the previous work experience for points in immigration. I have called them also and they confirmed that they do not assess previous experience. Please help with the below: 1) How to get points assessed for the previous work experience 2) Do I need to get around 80 points to get the invitation, or is it less for a doctor (as very few people apply in my occupation) Any help would be highly valued. Thanks!!

    Maths teacher trying to emigrate

    Hi My partner and I are trying to emigrate, I will be the primary applicant on 75 points for 189 but we will go up to 80 when the new rules kick in as he is a British citizen. I have spoken to a couple of recruiters and schools and they are all very positive about the opportunities for maths teachers. Previously I was assured that getting a visa would be easy but from looking on this forum, it appears it won't be. I know that Victoria will sponsor maths teachers for 190 visas, does anyone have any experience of migrating with a 'shortage' subject? Is the subject you offer taken into account for the 189 visa? Many thanks in advance

    QCT TEACHER REGISTRATION.

    Hi, Just wondering if anybody had registered with QCT so they can get 190 visa for Queensland? We would like to have the option to go down the 190 route as well as the 189. if anybody has any info or experiences please share. thanks eddie
  5. Hi everyone, I have a question in regards of claiming work experience. So I have a friend who is currently working as a chef. His pay rate is in line with the hospitality industry awards. He works Fri, Sat & Sun. He's a casual so his weekly working hours vary, it can be 17, 18 or sometimes even 20+/week. He still abides by the working hour restricted rule, here's an example of it: 1st week of September: He worked 19.25h 2nd week of September: He worked 19.25h 3rd week of September: He worked 20.5h 4th week of September: He worked 19h The problem is, according to what I understand, in order to claim work experience, the applicant needs to work at least 20h/week. However, his agent said that even though he did not strictly work 20h/week every week, he still could claim the experience. The agent said when the CO asked for proof of employment, normally only payment summary and letter of employment confirmation/employment contract were needed. The CO may require payslips as well, but he (my friend) only needs to submit 12 weekly payslips which shows that he works 20h in the period of 12 working months (In the example above, that would mean he would use the payslip of the 3rd week of Sep). So here's my question. Is what the agent said true? Or besides payment summary and letter of employment confirmation/employment contract, the CO will require EVERY SINGLE payslip for every working months that you claim you have worked? I'm looking forward to any clarification. Thank you in advance.
  6. Applying for 190 skilled nominated, with Victorian State sponsorship. I was recently informed by my agent that in order to meet the Victorian State Sponsorship criteria I would require a job offer to support my application and show commitment to Victoria beacuse we have links with another state. My husband's family live in NSW and we have made a few visits there over the last 20 years. My husband also lived in NSW as a student for 18 months in 2006. I have checked the website and for my occupation (French Teacher) there is no requirement for a job offer. Does anyone have any information regarding this? Thanks
  7. 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.
  8. So, as you can see, this thread is about what the title says. Just to be clear, I am, by all means, not an expert, but here is my take on this issue. First, please let me present the types of applicants at the moment and how the changes in Nov will affect them. 1/ Applicants whose partners have English & SA at the moment => they currently get 5p from their partners ---> When the change is implemented, they will get 10p, instead of 5p like before => BENEFICIAL 2/ Applicants who are single at the moment => they currently get 0 point. ---> When the change is implemented, they will get 10p => BENEFICIAL 3/ Applicants whose partners have English, but no SA at the moment => they currently get 0 point from their partners. ---> When the change is implemented, they will get 5 points instead of 0 point like before => BENEFICIAL 4/ Applicants whose partners have no English and no SA at the moment => they currently get 0 point from their partners. ----> When the change is implemented, they will still get 0 point like before => NOTHING CHANGE There is also a degree of priority being introduced in Nov, with singles and applicants whose partners have SA and competent English are considered to be equally first. Applicants whose partners only have competent English to be second and applicants whose partners have no English as well as SA to be last. This change is obviously good for singles and applicants with skilled and competent in English partners. However, people can game the new system, and here’s why I say this. In my opinion, base on what I stated above, the applicants who fall into category 3 & 4 (whether their relationships are genuine or not) will CLAIM TO BE SINGLE again in order to get 10 points, instead of only 5 points or no point at all, for the purpose of boosting their total points for a better chance at getting PR. For real couples, after the main applicants have already got PR, the other spouses, who weren’t included in the PR visa, can always lodge a partner visa after that. This is obviously easier to be done by people who are in de factor relationship rather than married couples as they don’t have to go through the complicated divorce process, which from what I understand is time consuming as costly as well. Of course this will make the PR path for both partners (de factor or married) become much more expensive and take much more time. There are also possible risks of breaking up or getting divorce for real, but let’s not talk about that now. In short, I expect there will be a lot of break-up cases in the upcoming November after the new changes are implemented. As suspicious as it looks, DHA can’t really prove if the break-ups are real or not and will have no choice but to accept that. Of course DHA can always alter the requirements or blacklist those applicants who do those shady things and thus make it harder for them to “sponsor” their spouses in the future, but who knows. I could be wrong on this, I guess we just have to wait and see how things turn out.

    Work experience for visa

    Hi everybody. I’m a gas engineer looking to apply for the 189 or 190 visa. Just wondering if these visas require a certain amount of work experience before you can apply for them? I’ve been qualified and working for 3 and a half years. Also, if any other gas/heating engineers are on here and have moved over recently could you share your experience and thoughts with me please? cheers
  10. 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.
  11. Hi everyone, how you going? My partner and I have an EOI in for VIC 190 and are currently just waiting to be invited. We are over in Bali for the next 5 weeks before returning to Australia where we will both be on tourist visas. If we are selected while we are here in Bali and apply, are we able to return to Australia and even be there on this tourist visa when the 190 visa is approved? We are under the impression that a tourist visa does not necessarily come under the 'onshore' category, therefore allowing us to be there on holiday to then swap straight onto the 190 residency, despite having applied offshore. Can anyone help clarify? THANKS
  12. Hi guys, I am sincerely asking a question here which i saw are often much discussed, i have had PR for 1 year and 8 months by 190 south australia sponsorship, recently i got redundant, although i was informed in April, and i started to look for the next job since April all the way till now august (for 5 months around), and i still got no offer with my skillsets. now i am worried about next stage of my life, if i still got no job offer here in adelaide, can i move interstate. I am already 1 year and 8 months through my 2 years obligation, i can't just stay here with no job all the way till reach the 2 year obligation, i need to eat and pay for life expenses as well as loan. A little bit of my background, i have studied and worked and lived in Adelaide for nearly 7 years since i was 18 fresh out of my homeland, Adelaide here is like my second hometown where i spent my entire adult hood so far, however now i am facing this problem, i like Adelaide and i like Australia, but i need to pay for my life expenses. I sent a enquiry to Immigration SA, and they replied that "........SA government does not issue release letter, should you leave or stay it is your choice, and we still sincerely hope you have geniue intension to live in South Australia" My question here is if i relocate it now, will it affect my Australian citizenship or Renew of PR in the future because i didn't meet the 2 years obligation?
  13. Can someone please reassure me that we still have a chance of receiving our grant?? I don’t seem to see anyone waiting as long as us, do any agents have any advice they can offer?

  14. Hi Guys, I'm a civil engineering student in VIC here and I saw that there are a lot of related occupations that I can apply for a PR in NSW state sponsor site. So, I am wondering that what are that chances that we can apply accross the states like that? P.s: I got 60 Points which is perfectly enough for applying this visa. Thanks in advance

    489 instead of 190

    Hello All, I have applied for NT sponsorship for 190 application but I have been offered with 489 visa. I am working full time in my skilled occupation from the last 18 months. I met all the conditions for 190 Visa but still I have been offered with 489 Visa stating that I need to be in NT for at least 3 years to get 190 nomination. However, it was not mentioned in any of the Migration NT websites. Has anyone got the similar response? Regards, RK

    EOI subclass 190 NSW

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, very interesting reading everyone's comments good and bad. I'm 34 and will be moving over with my wife and our young daughter, can't wait for a new adventure. Submitted my EOI carpenter subclass 190 today with 60 points. Received my IELTS score this morning, very frustrating as I could've done with the 20 points. My results were- Listening- 9 Reading- 9 Speaking - 8.5 Writing- 7.5 So close yet so far, seriously annoying but anyway EOI submitted and I'll probably give them more money and sit it again. Are there any carpenters on here who have received an invite on 60 points recently? Thanks in advance.
  20. 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!
  21. Hi there, thank you for your advices. When I applying my application after invited, I just found that I provided wrong work duration in unrelated work experience and I do not claim any point from this work. does it will effect my visa application? Do I need to inform CO about this? thank you so much. JT

    Accounting 2019/20

    Hi guys, Does anyone know how likely is General Accountant to be removed from the list on visas 189, 190 and 489? Thanks, Gab
  23. Hi, We are looking for an invite to apply for our 190 visa. We are interested in sponsorship from two different states. When creating the EOI we only see options to choose All/Any state or to select just one state. Has anyone ever got an invite by selecting all states? How do you indicate interest in just two states on EOI? Is it a good idea to create seperate EOI'S for each state selecting one state in each? Is that allowed? Anyone invited when doing this? Thanks
  24. Hello everyone! I thought of starting a discussion with people who migrated from Dubai to Adelaide in the past few years! People who have already applied for their skilled visas and are waiting to migrate are also welcome to join The idea is to connect with folks on topics like: 1) How do you find Adelaide vs Dubai? 2) Looking back did the move work out for you? 3) What are the things about Dubai you still miss dearly? 4) How did you manage landing your first job? 5) Any advice for people who will be migrating soon? I applied for my SA 489 visa along with my wife and baby in Jan 2019 and I’m currently waiting for my grant. Part of us is excited but another part of us is also anxious! Our reason for the move is to hopefully provide a better environment for our baby growing up and of course get PR at some point. We do live comfortably in Dubai but it is starting to get expensive (especially raising a child) and our careers are stagnating. This is what prompted us to consider migration Your contributions will be invaluable to us and I thank you all in advance!! Cheers!
