  1. Hi all, I’m hoping for an invite next round as I’ve jus increased my points to 75. Should I do medicals and police checks b4 applying? It says on their website they prefer us to do that. Also not sure about police checks as they say ‘you may be exempt from it if u have no criminal record’ thanks
  2. Hi can anyone tell me if you can teach in Australia with a PGCEi? If so is it widely accepted? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi, I have applied for Australian citizenship and met all the criteria. However, after applying, I had to move back to the UK for family reasons so no longer have an address in Australia. I received the citizenship test notification just now and will fly back to Australia to sit the test. My two questions: 1. Does moving back to the UK before the citizenship test effect my application at all? 2. Do I need to update my application to show my UK address? Thanks in advance!

    Thinking of moving to Australia

    I'm 32 and thinking of moving to Australia. I don't have a degree but do have A levels currently living in Bristol I have no criminal record but only work in temporary jobs don't have a specific skill of profession as such. Would I still be able to move there? Also, what are the negatives and positives of life there compared to the UK? The main reason I want to move is because I am really tired of this country the weather and lack of space etc Also I want to have different experiences and a change.
  5. Hi guys!! I am the sponsor while my fiance (applicant) is living in the Philippines. We have met in person but majority of our relationship was long distance. We are so close to gathering all our documents and requirements, and we are planning to lodge our application in March 2019. I just have a few concerns and would appreciate some advice! ♥ ♥ - quick relationship background - * We first met as friends in 2011 at our high school. I migrated to Australia in 2013, and our relationship started/developed when I reunited with him when I went on a vacation to the Philippines in Feb 2017. (This was the only time in 2017 where we were physically together, for around 2 weeks only) * Ever since I went back to Aus in March 2017, we have remained in contact and continued our relationship. We started talking about our future and getting married in Australia constantly throughout 2017 to present. QUESTION 1: Does this count to 'when we got engaged'?? or only when he actually proposed to me with a ring? Is there a certain requirement for how long we are supposed to be engaged for? * I went on a vacation to visit him in the Philippines twice in 2018. (first visit was for almost 2 months, and second visit was for 1 month). We did talk about him getting a tourist visa but he has not yet had the opportunity to visit me in Australia due to college and work (and He has never tried travelling to other countries before, but he got his passport earlier this year) QUESTION 2: Is that going to be an issue to be concerned about? Does he need to visit me in Australia first prior to lodging our visa? * We both met each other's family in 2018. I only have 3 photos together with us with my family, and only 2 photos of us with my fiance’s family. (We met up way more times than this, but we just did not take lots of photos back then when i was in the philippines twice in 2018). As for friends, we also only have 1 photo with our friends in 2018. Our friends are graduating from college and some are working full time, causes a clash in our schedules which is why we didn’t really get the chance to spend more time with our friends (plus we were honestly focused on spending our limited time of being physically together alot more) Will this be an issue of concern? Do I need to provide more photos than this? QUESTION 3: Will this be a problem? Do I need to supply more photos than that? * As of now, I will be visiting him in the Philippines again for a month in mid January 2019, and in February we are going to be travelling together for the first time (and his first time travelling in general) to Singapore for our 2nd Anniversary. * During my time in the Philippines in Jan-February 2019, We are planning to get his medical exams done there in advance and then lodge our visa in March 2019. As for our Notice of Intended Marriage, I am planning to get that done in early January 2019 before I leave Australia to go to the Philippines. QUESTION 4: Will this be okay to get these documents a month prior to lodging our visa? Is it allowed? These are also a list of relationship evidence requirements that I have gathered so far: - 2017 call logs and message history - 2018 call logs and message history - 2017 social media posts - 2018 social media posts - receipts of gifts we gave to each other (with bank transactions) - receipts of our hotel bookings (with bank transactions) - receipts of uber ride histories showing us visiting each other’s houses, going to our hotels, dates, etc (with bank transactions) - timeline of our relationship that shows photos of significant events and joint activities - receipts of times money was sent to fiance through remittance website (with bank transactions) - receipts of our hotel and flight bookings for our trip to singapore in feb 2019. QUESTION 5: in regards to ‘ proof that you and your prospective spouse have met face-to-face as adults since turning 18 and know each other personally’ in our written statement it is mentioned that we met in 2017 when we were 19 years old. What other evidence can I provide for this section? Question 6: in regards to ‘proof that you and your prospective spouse genuinely intend to live as spouses’ We included talking about our plans to live together in our written statements and also included screenshots of chats/messages about this, as well as links of rental properties we both liked that we sent to each other. Question 7: I only have 3 photos together with my fiance and my family, and only 2 photos of me with my fiance’s family. (We met up way more times than this, but we just did not take lots of photos back then when i was in the philippines twice in 2018). As for friends, we also only have 1 photo with our friends in 2018. Our friends are graduating from college and some are working full time, causes a clash in our schedules which is why we didn’t really get the chance to spend more time with our friends (plus we were honestly focused on spending our limited time of being physically together alot more) Will this be an issue of concern? Do I need to provide more photos than this? Question 8: In regards to joint activities, I can only think about including photos of us going on dates. We never travelled anywhere in 2017 and 2018. We have never went on weddings or parties (only one family reunion event). What are other examples of joint activities?? Question 9: In regards to Form 888 Statutory Declarations, I am planning to get 3-4 stat decs to be completed in Jan 2019 (2 months before visa lodgement) is this okay? does it matter when a stat dec is made? Question 10: In regards to fiance’s Form 80 Character assessment.. My Fiance does not hold a bachelor’s degree since he decided to stop his university studies mid 2018 in order to work full time (his first job) to help save for our future and for the visa. Will this affect our application, or give a bad impression ? Question 11: Since philippines is a high risk country, does that mean processing time for our visa will take longer? IM SO SORRY for the long post and the many questions. I am just feeling scared and overwhelmed, only a couple more months until we plan to lodge our visa! We really want to be approved same as everyone else.. We truly appreciate it if you could let us know anything we are missing, any kind of advice, suggestion, or important info! THANK YOU SOOO SO MUCH!!
  6. The Migration Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2016 has at long last had its second reading in the Senate, and was passed this morning. Some will recall that this is the legislation that the Federal Government considers is required to pass into law before the long awaited temporary parent visa can become available. We are anticipating the Bill will become law this week, at which point we can reasonably expect the new temporary parent visa pathway will open. Hopefully this will be prior to the Parliament rising for the Christmas recess. The legislation as drafted requires the approval of a sponsor before a visa application is lodged. The Bill now returns to the House of Representatives for a vote. If the Bill passes the House without any amendments it should receive Royal Assent and become law, after which the drafting of regulations will be necessary to give it practical effect. Those who are interested in progressing an application for the new temporary parent visa with our help should feel able to send a PM or an email to me - or to any other registered migration agent .who is doing parent visa work. Best regards.
  7. Hi, I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick, UK, and I am conducting research into how people think about the relationship between Britain and Australia over time, and how this relates to attitudes to migration policy. As part of this, I would like to conduct interviews on this subject with people planning a permanent move from Britain to Australia, or who have very recently moved. Would you be interested in helping me by taking part in a short interview? This could be face to face, over Skype or phone, or by email or instant messages. If you might be interested, I can send you more information about the study and what it would involve. Just leave me a message on here, send me an email at the address below, or get in touch via private message on this site. Hope to hear from you, Hannah Dr Hannah Jones Associate Professor Department of Sociology University of Warwick h.jones.1@warwick.ac.uk http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/hannahjones/
  8. I have applied for my husband’s spouse visa in June 2017 and received a phone call interview on the 6th of February 2018. Does anyone know around how long I could be waiting for my husband to get his visa? My husband is an Afghan National currently living in Pakistan.
  9. Hello everyone, I am writing because I would like to know if those who already worked at fantastic framing can give me a testimony of what they did. Also maybe you can give me more details about the accommodation they give? Am I taking risks in this company ? This company seems to have the "dream job" but I am not sure. Thanks for your answers

  13. I’m going travelling solo for a year soon and doing the classic Australia and Asia backpackers route. I’m starting with Australia then doing Asia later on cause I don’t have time before my visa deadline expires. My rough plan is travel around Australia, maybe head over to New Zealand for some time then go to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore areas. Then come back to Australia to do some work before the visa ends. I’m already 31 (seriously cutting it fine!) so I won’t be eligible to extend the visa for a second year but I’m an experienced graphic designer and hoping to get a job doing that for a while. I’ve done a lot of research but it’s mainly articles and blogs and It would be good to get some personal opinions too, I have a few questions: Do you have any advice on which route to take through Australia? – I’ll probably be starting at Sydney. For long term accommodation is hostels the best option or getting a house share? I know in London it’s common for backpackers to stay in house shares for a few days or weeks, occupying someone else’s room while it’s vacant. Round the world plane tickets vs booking your own flights – is it worth it? The backpack – I’m looking at 70-80L Osprey bags and something with a laptop pocket – Is this too big and a ball ache to carry around?

    New Friends

    Hi everyone, After planning for over 2 year’s me and my boyfriend have arrived on the Sunshine Coast and the area is amazing! Not your average backpackers as we wanted to have a base for a few months at a time and do road trips/ day trips when we feel like it. The down side is that as we chose to stay in an air bnb and my boyfriend has found some casual work already, I’m feeling very lonely! I’ve been going out and about on my own but I’m finding it hard to connect with people whether I’m just a little nervous still being in a totally new country. I guess what I’m asking is that if anyone who is currently on the Sunshine Coast (I’m close to Mooloolaba at the moment) wants to hang out/go trips together/drinks/beach whatever then please let me know! Cheers ?

Where would you recommend i should start off first, i was thinking to do western australia to do work. 3.

  16. Hi, I've completed my B. Com degree from Delhi University. Can someone please help me to identify the section it falls in Country Education Profile?
  17. Hi everyone! im hoping I can get some advice and guidance! Sorry for all the questions!! We are a family of 5! I am 28 (In a June!) and my partner of 7 years is 29. I have 2 sons from a previous relationship and we have one daughter together. We are very seriously looking to emigrate to Aus as it's something we have always wanted to do, it ticks every box as far as our lifestyle is concerned. I currently work as a Health Care Assistant in a local hospital. My partner has his own motor mechanic business. He is currently the only employee (was looking to employ someone but now we want to move he has held off) it's not a huge business but he's always busy and it pays the bills. What are the chances of us being accepted? My job is not on the skills list. How does this affect us? We currently have very little savings due to an emergency where we pretty much used up all of our savings. We are currently in the process of saving back up - how much roughly should we save to fund such a move? I won't have any problems as far as my sons are concerned, father is not on birth certificate and when told of our plans, was not bothered in the slightest! Another thing to throw in (sorry!) my mother wants to come. She is 54 in a July though, she currently has a very professional job as a teacher in a college. However due to age, we are thinking that would be a problem. What visas are available for our situation? I am planning on securing a job pretty much as soon as I get out there. Same as partner. We would prefer Aus, but we are not limited to there, we have also been looking into NZ as my mother has an Uncle there and she seems to think it will be easier for her (and us) to get in. any advice is greatly appreciated! thankyou in advance!
  18. Hi, I am currently studying A Levels in the UK, England. My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving to Australia in the near future, he is fully Australian and his family live there also. After I have finished my A-levels, this is where my problem starts, I have no idea of any of the methods in which I can train. I am fully English myself so I can imagine this could be quite awkward. I have tried looking into this but I cannot find a lot of information, my plan in the UK was to finish my A-levels, move on to a higher apprenticeship and continue from there until trained and qualified. Is an apprenticeship in Law an option in Australia, NSW? Or do you have to go university? If a junior contract is available, are they easy to find? If not is there any advice on how university would work for me? And how long either of these processes will take? Will becoming a solicitor eventually be an option to me in Australia or is it the end of what I wish to do? Please leave ANY advice you have as I am completely stuck!! Thank you in advance, Whitney.
  19. HI All I am currently looking for opportunity within Australia, any information or feedback into getting the ball rolling would be appreciated.I am a heavily experienced painter/panelbeater.

    One year after in SA..

    My wife and I along with our 3 month old moved to South Australia about a year ago. I lived in the US for 14 years (Did my masters in the US as well) and my wife lived there for around 8 years. It was a decision based on the fact that I wasn't getting my Green Card (We are from India) any sooner and I had already spent 10 years waiting for one. It was scary for me as I had a stable job in the US and was making good money and I was moving here with out work and with a new born. 1 year on, I think it was a good decision. I was able to find a job within a month and a year later got hired as a permanent employee in the same govt. sector I joined as a contractor. The things I liked so far: 1. The weather obviously. We lived in Illinois and the winter was brutal there. Even here the winter is little cold for our liking during winters but not as bad as what we faced in Illinois. 2. Not worrying about the visa. I lived in the US for 14 years and there wasn't a single year I wasn't worried about my visa status. It was either appearing for an interview when going on a vacation or applying for H1B extensions every 1-3 years. 3. Less crowded and good transportation. 4. People have been largely friendly. I don't know if this is just in Adelaide but I haven't found any animosity from the locals till now. Things that could be better: 1. The cost of living is little higher but again SA is not that bad when compared to other states I guess. 2. The internet. I was shocked to learn that majority of places in SA and in Australia are still on DSL with unreliable download speeds. I still get only 5-7 MBPS and the reports of NBN hasn't been very encouraging as well. I always had 20-30 MBPS in the US and even the DSL mostly will hover around 12-20 MBPS there. I am only talking about cities and not the rural areas. Well even though there are few other niggles, I wouldn't want to harp on that as there isn't any place which is perfect. Living in an alien country for 14 years, I have learnt to adapt and so has my wife. So I don't have too many complaints about where I live. My only expectation when I moved to Australia was a simple and peaceful life for my family. We don't have major expectations and just wanted a stable life for our daughter growing up. I am happy so far here in Australia and hopefully it will stay the same. I have taken lots of help from this site and just wanted to update how we got on after our move.

    ACS Work experience letter

    Hi Guys, I have got a work experience letter from my UK employer which only mentioned working "full time and *not working hours per week*. Will ACS accept this letter or the hours must be mentioned? Appreciate your response.
  23. My 18 year old friend studied hard last year and this year has been offered a uni place. She was born in Australia of UK born parents. This disqualifies her from accessing HECS loan for uni like other Aussies can, apparently. It doesnt sound right or seem fair. Especially in light of the hundreds of Aussie politicians with dual citizenship who have served in Parliament contrary to the Constitution. Can anyone she some light on why an Aussie born girl who has lived here for all of her 18 years is not entitled to Aussie rights? Cheers.
  24. When I was asked why I loved Australia, my mind instantly thought of the weather, the glorious sun shining for most of the year and the golden sandy beaches. But Australia has become so much more than that to me, it’s become my home and the people here have become my community. Don't mistake me for saying the coastline isn’t one of the most glorious things I have ever seen, especially at sunset but there is so much more here to see! When I moved to Australia seven years ago I thought I’d be here for a year or two, earn some good money and go home again. But here I am after all this time settled into a beautiful home and engaged to an Australian! My experiences in this beautiful country have taken me all over the state of NSW, up to the scorching Gold Coast and Brisbane, down to the creative and artsy Melbourne and to the nation’s capital on a regular basis, even smaller coastal towns such as Coffs harbour The drive to Canberra is one of the best ways to see a bit of everything! Starting in Sydney you see the hustle and bustle of the city life, the long stretching highways, the build up of traffic, the different cultures through the western suburbs of Sydney, and then suddenly the long highway takes you into the wide open air! You are cruising along at 110km looking at beautiful bush land, wide open fields with kangaroos bouncing around and suddenly you feel like you’re so far away from the city! When arriving in Canberra it’s like being in a small coastal town with no coast! The people here are so friendly and relaxed, willing to help you with directions or a flat tyre or anything you may need! Below is a picture I took on my most recent visit to Canberra from my hotel room. I also have a silly picture of my first journey to Canberra in 2011 when I first arrived in Australia and this is taken at The Great Dry Lake George. Which is exactly what it sounds like, a big lake that is no more and now lays a sometimes rain filled sometimes dry for the kangaroos to lay around on! Speaking of kangaroos, all those little grey specs are kangaroos! The people are one of the biggest reasons I stayed here, as well as job opportunities! The people of Queensland that I encountered were so relaxed it was like they were on permanent holidays, the shops were wonderfully quiet and the tourist attractions were what we expected! The theme parks on the Gold Coast are a must visit for anyone travelling to this part of Australia! Young and Old will enjoy their time here with plenty of shops and attractions as well as rides for thrill seekers. Below is a picture from my most recent visit to the Gold Coast in the evening I have also a picture of the tropical hotel I stayed in The people of Melbourne were so different to anywhere I’d seen before, they are outspoken, passionate and proud and LOVE their coffee and coffee houses! The place is beautiful with art everywhere, interesting places to visit and of course a beautiful coastline as well! I didn't have much time to take pictures of all the wonderful art while in Melbourne as I was too distracted with the sights to get out my phone but I have two pictures one from the Aquarium we visited and one from the river bank we ate our lunch on. Where I live in Sydney is very multi cultural, it’s very diverse in shopping and eating facilities and this acceptance of everyone’s cultures is what makes it home to me now! Here is a photo from my balcony The other reason I stayed as mentioned before is the job opportunities. Here in Australia you can be whatever you dream of being, from a teacher to a builder, from a nurse to a road worker, every single field you can dream of has an entry level position where if you work hard and succeed you have so many opportunities to climb the ladder and grow as an employee. The government here also helps greatly with training and development options. Or if you already have the qualifications they are recognized here and you can go into a position higher than entry level. All the jobs I have had here in Sydney have paid me well, and rewarded me for my hard work. If you have the right attitude towards work then Australians respect that. I haven’t been “home” to New Zealand in a very long time and as I look into the future the reasons to go back dwindle, as each day I build my life here with more confidence and love for everything I’ve come to know here in Australia. And yes the sunshine is wonderful but the people and opportunities are more wonderful!

    Chefs Wanted in Australia

    The McGowan government’s ­decision to tear up the list that fast-tracked overseas workers to Western Australia has made it tough for Margaret River’s wineries and restaurants to put meals on customers’ plates during their peak new year trade. There are simply too few local chefs and trained kitchen staff to cope, says Amelia Park Tavern’s resident chef Gary Wilkins, who moved to Margaret River eight years ago for the relaxed lifestyle. “We’re struggling to get help and there’s a limited number of good local chefs,” he says. It has taken the importation of seven temporary chefs, one flown in from Sydney, to keep operating Amelia Park’s kitchen. “It costs management a lot more money to get people in,” Wilkins said. The labour cost — more than double the normal rate of about $25-$30 an hour — can reach nearly $100 an hour in some cases, when labour-hire company fees are included. Shortly after taking office, Premier Mark McGowan made good on an election promise to slash occupations that could be filled by overseas workers. He said changed economic conditions required local jobs to be kept open for the more than 90,000 unemployed West Australians, but his government’s cuts to the eligible skills list — from 170 occupations to 18, none of them hospitality jobs — has left the sector shorthanded. The government also withdrew Perth as a destination from the Regional Sponsored ­Migration Scheme, which offers incentives to lure foreign visa holders to less populated areas. Opposition tourism spokeswoman Libby Mettam said Perth’s hospitality industry was having difficulties recruiting staff as a result. “This is the first Christmas season for the hospitality and service industry where the impact of this shortsighted and ill-advised move is being felt,” she said. The changes have hit just as a wave of new hotels, bars and restaurants is helping to diversify WA’s resource-dominated economy. And with direct flights due to start between Perth and London, and Asian tourism on the rise, good hospitality staff “is high on the list of needs”, she said. “From a tourism perspective, there is no second chance in making an excellent first impression.”
