      2. Construction Project Manager

        Hi, I was wondering if I am eligible to apply for PR under 133111 Construction Project Manager. I have a Bachelors degree in Geophysics, and currently doing Masters in Project Management in Australia. Regards
      3. We do need applicants to have full AHPRA registration but are able to offer sponsorship for the right candidate. Could be ideal for someone who is locuming on a working holiday visa and thinking about staying: https://cerebralpalsy.mercury.com.au/ViewPosition.aspx?id=H+VJo7z+MKM=&jbc=ere
      4. The Australian government will create a new visa to compete with other countries for “high-tech skills and talent”, with companies allowed to sponsor migrants for jobs paid more than $180,000. There will also be a new visa for start-up companies seeking talent in STEM fields like biomedicine and agricultural technology. Both visas will require the migrant to have three years of relevant experience, while the sponsor companies will need to demonstrate they tried to hire Australians first. “The Government recognises there is fierce competition globally for high-tech skills and talent, and that attracting these people helps to transfer skills to Australian workers and grow Australian-based businesses,” a Turnbull government media release reads. There will not be a cap on the overall number of visas, but individual companies will have a limit on how many migrants they can employ. Businesses will be able to take up to 20 skilled migrants under the new stream per year, while start-ups will be able to take up to five. The visas for jobs paid more than $180,000 will only be available to businesses with a turnover of more than $4 million. The start-up visas will be available to any that is authorised by an industry body, yet to be chosen by the government. The migrants will have the option of a "transitional pathway" to permanent residence after three years in the country. The details of the scheme will be ironed out over the next few months before a 12-month pilot begins on July 1. The need for visa changes to attract high-value employees from overseas has been the “number one priority” in the emerging startup sector, according to an industry group. StartupAUS chief executive Alex McCauley said the government’s changes to 457 temporary work visas last year, which restricted the list of occupations and cut off the path to permanent residency for many jobs, had made it harder for start-ups to compete. “The single biggest challenge for Australian start-ups is getting access to the best talent in the world,” “It got more difficult when the 457 visa announcements were made last year and start-ups in this country are really crying out for a way to get access to talent.” “Everybody’s looking to hire product managers, software engineers, digital growth specialists, data scientists.”
      5. Hi all. I was recently interviewed for a job with a company offering sponsorship to successful candidates. It seemed to go really well and i felt there were a few hints towards me being successful (these were interviews for multiple jobs of the same role rather than 1 job available). I travelled the length of the UK for the interview and they were really thankful for that and made a point that they will 100% call whether it's successful or not. They said they'd call by Thursday or Friday and i'm pretty certain they said next week which would have been there 17th. I haven't heard from them and i'm hoping i got my weeks mixed up and it's this week as in today but my worry is that the visa changeover on the 18th may be delaying it and putting things in jeopardy. It's not so bad as we can apply for a 489 but we were just kinda hoping to get over on a temporary visa first and experience other parts of the country. Is any body experiencing similar or do any migration agents think the change would delay things as companies go though all the details with a fine toothed comb?
      6. Hi, I am a British, 34 and I have been in Australia almost 9years, living in NSW. I have been sponsored with my company for 3.5years and it appears they will not sign my PR for reasons I do not know. My old agent messed up my skills assessment as a Project Administrator and it got rejected so that Avenue is closed and I am now sponsored as a Contract Administrator. My English wife has a small beauty business, we have 2 small children born here and want to stay but my employer is dictating my family’s future which is causing immense stress. Does anyone know of special cases or what I can do? I am not skilled enough to go on the high level sceme. If I leave my job I do not believe I have any other option to get Residency. I would of hoped after all my time here, kids born here , business, I support the community out of work they would be a special case. I hate the fact I am not in control of my family’s future which is causing immense stress. My current visa expires next May 2019. Any advice / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
      7. Hi My partner has been sponsored by his employer since May 2015, and they are willing and able to nominate him for PR. I also work for the same employer (not sponsored as I am his defacto) and will end up preparing all documentation an agent requests - this is why I would consider lodging it myself without an agent. Has anyone here done this before and can offer some advice about documentation required etc..? Or tell me I'm completely nuts and should not continue without an experts help.
      8. 457 Transfer to new employer

        Hi I’m in Australia currently on a 457, awaiting PR 190 (submitted August 2017). I’ve potentially found a great permanent role with an organisation willing to take over the sponsorship of my 457. Has anyone recently transferred their 457 to a new employer that can give me an idea of timelines or a good migration agent who has done this? I want to manage the new employer expectations honestly. Thanks
      9. BVE or wait for PR

        Hi I ceased employment with my 457 Employer Sponsor almost 90 days ago, unfortunately I just found out that they didn't fulfill their obligation to inform the Dept.of Home Affairs (I did tell them). This has meant that I missed out on a job. Anyway, we're awaiting the outcome of a PR application submitted last August and I wondered if anyone had experience of applying for a BVE. My migration agent says I could request online to cancel my 457 but I'm not sure what the process is if I do and could we apply for a bridging visa? I'd rather not be unlawful for any amount of time and I haven't worked for a while now so I don't want my husband to lose his work rights - but I'd definitely like to get back to work! I don't know if we should risk cancelling the 457 or just wait for the PR to be granted? Any and all advice welcome.
      10. 820 to 801?

        So our 820 was just granted yesterday! Does the 801 come through 2 years after the initial partner visa application (14/6/2017) or 2 years after the 820 was granted (8/3/18)? Also, does anyone know what further paperwork is required? Thanks!!!
      11. Hi everyone, I'm new here. I hope its ok to start up a new thread like this.... I contact a MARA agent to help with the confusing and ever changing visa situation. His help was invaluable. Unfortunately my occupation (student Counsellor) is now only on the STSL but it is on the QLD list of occupations shortages. I asked about doing an EOI for QLD (with a view to a 190 visa) and this was his reply: While you can complete an EOI and in theory be selected from SkillSelect by an employer interested in your skill set, in reality this is government rhetoric and there is no reliable evidence to show that this process works. I wondered what people thought and whether anyone on here has or knows someone who has been successful via EOI and skillset? Instead I'm going out to volunteer in a community centre (ie proper volunteer position) on a tourist visa and see if I can find a sponsor. If anyone also has any advice on getting sponsorship whilst in Australia I'm all ears! Many thanks Kat
      12. New 457 after March

        Hi All, My partners employer has offered a 457 visa but we are hoping we get an invite for a 190 visa prior to our visa expiry date which is the 14th March. Our 190 nomination is being expedited but we are cautious of time. My Question: If the 457 nomination has been submitted, can we still take up the 457 offer after 1st March?
      13. Hi all, can anyone help clarify the below statement...242111 University Lecturer (Suitable for the position of Research Associate or Research Fellow in a University) "Suitable for the position of Research Associate or Research Fellow in a University"Can a Research Fellow (but not a lecturer) working in the uni be nominated by "242111 University Lecturer" occupation ?And If so, can this occupation go with 186 (direct entry) or just can do 457 (long term TSS from now on) and transfer to 186 later ?Thanks all
      14. Hello Raul (or other consultants), Raul, I tagged you on this topic because I saw you replied to a similar question, and I cannot find the information anywhere else. My situation is: I am working on a 457 Visa (Life Scientist nec - 234599) and I'm going to move to a new employer (a big University) who is going to nominate me BEFORE 01 March 2018, but with a different occupation (University Lecturer - 242111). My question is: Will I be required to re-apply for the visa given that the occupations are different? or are they similar enough? Also, does it matter that we are now in the transition period between the 457 and TSS visas? Should I expect problems in the nomination transfer because of that? Thanks ahead for any assistance you can provide. Yours, Oren
      15. Hi all, First post. I’ve been trawling various forums for some clarifications on our situation but I just can’t confirm, so I wondered if you can help. My GF is a registered Nurse and has been offered a job arranged through an employment agent (I’m defacto partner). We’re continually hitting delays. Mainly, I think, due to poor comms on the process. Timeline: Sept 2017 - My GF was interviewed and verbally offered a job. - We started the APHRA (Nursing Registration – notoriously slow) paperwork, as requested. Nov 2017 - We had to chase the letter of offer and in Nov 2017 it turned out there were forms to be filled in as a pre-requisite for the offer which we weren’t told about. 1st delay! - We sent APHRA docs off and the employer’s docs, as requested. Jan 2018 - APHRA asked for more docs. Provided later in the month. 2nd Delay! - I realised GF still hadn’t received a letter of offer and asked agent to chase employer. - Employer drafted the offer letter and the 457 visa nomination form but said Labour Market Testing has now probably expired and would need to be re-run (job re-advertised locally). 3rd Delay Feb 2018 - Nomination form received but with errors, so we’ve sent back for corrections. - Nomination form also made reference to 457 Visa and we will not submit the visa app before TSS comes in, presumably requiring new nomination templates which can’t be produced until 1 March (4th delay) Neither recruitment agent or employer really seem to be acknowledging the impact of TSS visa introduction and on the agency’s advice we have not applied for the 457 visa until APHRA comes through. Recently I saw facebook posts from an old friend (doctor) who this week turned up in Sydney to work on a 457. She cited APHRA delays and can’t start work yet but entered on a tourist visa. She also noted she already has her 457 visa though. I’ve since been digging around forums to find if our order of processing is wrong. Questions Why might the agency tell us to wait for APHRA before applying for a visa, if it could have been applied for in tandem? Now both us and the employer will have to pay increased fees for the TSS visa. I’ve since noted forum posts about APHRA’s ‘present [ID] in person’ deadline (in Australia) of 3 months from receiving APHRA ‘registration in principle’. Based on 457 processing times it seems highly unlikely a 457 or TSS visa will be granted within 3 months of our APHRA registration in principle, which I expect to come through in a couple of months. This seems to mean we either have to re-apply with APHRA (more delays) or the GF will have to fly to Australia just to present her ID in person (more cost). Neither agent or employer have made any reference to this. Am I missing something obvious here? Any advice is much appreciated.
      16. Hello, my husband has recently been offered a sponsored position in Oz, his company are approved sponsors. They have agreed to support me and our 2 children on the 457 Visa application on the condition we pay for ourselves (they will be applying and paying for my husband). My questions are: How much will this cost for the 3 of us as secondary applicants? Do we apply at the same time? Will there be any issues with us travelling over there 6 months after him? (He is due to start in April but I have things to arrange over here first so likely follow in October) Will we need our own private healthcare cover? (His company are paying his) Anything else I'd need to consider? Can I work out there etc.? TIA
      17. Hi, I have lodged a 457 visa back in mid December 2017. They have contacted me requesting for more documents/information and requiring me to do a health check-up and given me a time-frame of 28 days to do so. All of that was done and submitted to them before end of December 2017 except one final remaining document (license to practice). I have gotten in touch with the immigration officer, they have agreed to wait for me to submit the final document but advised I submit to them as soon as I have it As the relevant authority is still processing my license, and March 2018 is fast approaching, I've got 2 questions to ask. 1. if I am able to submit the document (license) to them by end of February 2018, will I be processed and granted visa 457 or the new TSS visa? 2. what will happen if I am only able to submit the document after March 2018? Thank you
      18. Hi guys, I have scored IELTS 8 and have an experience of three years working as Retail Manager. I have been recently sponsored by an employer for RSMS visa. I would be lodging the application by the end of this month. I heard somewhere that application is given more priority if the IELTS score is 8 and have related experience. So, my question is are my chances higher in securing a RSMS visa?
      19. Hi guys. I've posted here a few times before explaining our situation so hopefully those in the know may have seen my posts! Basically we are in England, not even applied yet but very close to starting the process and my gf/wife by August has been in touch with vets in Adelaide/SA who can offer sponsorship through the TSS visa. She is a vet nurse (29) and i'm a care home manager (33). Vet nurse is currently on the short term list so we can only get a temporary 2 year visa if we go down the TSS route. Advice needed - While on the TSS visa, are we allowed to apply for a longer term visa such as a 489? Or are we just a bit better off going through the rigmarole of the 489 now and paying for the skills assessment etc as she has more than enough points. Then when we're in Aus our only major visa worry will be the 887 after 2 years to apply for PR. Thanks! PS - my job is on the medium list but i don't have enough points so TSS through me is our other option as that could be a 4 year visa which i believe can be transformed to something more long term after 2 years? Yes? No?

      21. Hi all, I am currently trying to send my evidence and documents over to vetassess for the first part of my skill select. I currently have the evidence set up in a PowerPoint presentation... Is this the way any of you would recommend or is there another way someone could suggest??? is the uploading prices of the documents and evidence simple?? Thanks in advance.
      22. Subclass 820/801

        Hi, New to the forum. Some really good advice in here, thank you. Myself and my partner are currently in the process of applying for our subclass 820/801. I am currently looking for employment on a bridging visa and am wondering if an employer were to offer sponsorship whilst I am waiting for the partner visa, could I accept it? It seems then I would be applying for two separate visas? Any advice you can give me would be most welcome.
      23. My employer nominated me to 186 through direct entry stream and I also lodged a 186 application. Now my employer nomination is refused because the company is too small and it doesn't have sales and market. And I received an invitation email from immigration to withdraw my application. If my employer submitted another 186 nomination, then whether I can link my current 186 application to the new nomination? By doing this, I am able to extend my bridging visa and Medicare.
      24. 489 Working from home?

        Thanks for reading this post, I am desperately tying to find out the answer to this and my agent is unsure. We are hoping to move to SA this year and have applied for a Skilled - Regional (Subclass 489) (Provisional). I currently work for a global financial company and my current job, although based in the UK - requires time to support many countries. my question is: if I was to continue working in this job but be based from my new home (in an acceptable regional postcode in SA) for the 2 years. Would it satisfy the requirements of the 489 visa? any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you
      25. 457 priority processing

        Hi Friends, I have my 457 in queue from Dec 2017, my employer wants me in Australia by February 2018 due to the criticality of the project. Does anyone have idea on requesting priority processing? What needs to be included to get the priority request approved. Thanks for reading through, response is much appreciated.
