    TRA question for the Experts!

    Hi Guys, I am Irish, living in Ireland, and I have just received my AQF3 cert from Master Builders and I want to apply for a state sponsored 176 Pr visa. I also want to claim points for my years of experience in the business. I am just trying to find out the following: Is it compulsory to do the TRA points advice if I want to claim points for years of experience? Which TRA assessment do I apply for? Thanks for the help!

    Any UK immigration experts?

    Anyone with some good ideas about how I can get my husband back to UK quickly? I know as an Aussie he can come back for 3 months (and that might be enough to get us over the current crisis) However - anyone want to have a guess about whether he is a UK citizen by descent or not? His mother was born in UK in 1917 and emigrated as a child. He was born in Jan 1949 - I know they recently changed the rules but does that make him a citizen by descent and could he, therefore, apply onshore for a UK passport if he has entered as an Australian tourist? Alternatively, I know he can get an ancestry visa which he has to apply for from Australia but they are taking 50 days to process according to the website (thank you Manila) and I really really need him here before then! Any magical suggestions, I would love to get him back here by the end of next week!

    Visa - any experts out there?

    Hi Hope someone can help please. I am a secondary school teacher in Scotland with 9 years teaching experience so I thought I would be able to get a 175 visa. However, I have been told that 12 months prior to applying for the visa I would need to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. For the first 6 years I worked full-time but have had 2 babies in the last 3 years and so I've been part-time. I now wish to increase my hours but I'm finding it difficult to do so due to the recession. Where does this leave me? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get to oz? At the minute, we're trying to get sponsorship for my hubby as that's all I can think that I can do. As well as that I'm planning to apply for jobs that come up as surely if I have a job to go to I'd be able to get a visa. I hope someone with some knowledge will be able to help.

  19. Hi guys, I am almost ready to fill out my part for a 457 visa. Most of it we are managing to work through but I am stuck with one section regarding my employment history. I understand you must provide employment details for the last 3 yrs ..... is this correct or do they look back further ? The problem I have is that although I have been with my current employer for the last 2 yrs and 3 months previous to this I went through a bit of a rough spell and struggled to hold a job. In the previous year I worked for three companies unable to settle in any due to travel issues or just not liking the place. In each case I either left under a cloud or was dismissed. It is highly unlikely I could get a reference from 2 of these firms as one I seriously fell out with and the other I have just heard are going into liquidation. What can I do to satisfy DIAC ? Any help would be most appreciated ... I would love to hire an agent but can't afford the fee's right now :sad:

  21. Can anyone help with advice about creating a PDF file please? We are not very IT literate and our friend is trying to create an electronic file of her skills assessment to upload for a state sponsorship application (when the SMPs are finally released!). We had a look at the application form before applications were stopped and the maximum file size was 2MB. We have a scanner but this does not give the option to scan as a PDF file. We therefore created a jpeg file which ended up about 5 mb. We downloaded a free programme to convert this to a PDF but each of the two pages came out at about 3 mb plus. We would appreciate any help.
  22. Hi, I was on the Moneycorp live chat last night, and asked the question on how long you have to transfer your house sale money over to Oz as I had heard somewhere something about 6 months otherwise you were hit with tax to pay. They didnt know the answer and suggested I speak to a tax expert. Can anyone clarify this for me? If I sell before I move, can I just leave my money in a UK account, or Oz account in sterling, and wait til the rate increases? I will probably rent for a year so wont need it for a deposit. Thank Shaz
  23. First of all sorry if I have put my topic in the wrong place. I am very new to looking at moving to Australia & would be grateful if someone could help with some questions. 1. How can I check whether we are eligable for migration? 2. We would go over on husband's skill as a maintenance engineer, is this on their "wanted list"? 3. I have read that it is taking 12 months plus for visa's to be granted. Once granted is there a time limit that you would have to migrate? 4. We were looking at employment with a car manufacturer like Ford which I understand are based in the Melbourne/Victoria area. Are there any other locations for Ford or other car manufacturers? 5. Last but not least, the cost for applying & moving over? Thanks in advance for your help.
  24. Experts, please helpppppppppp I lodged my 175 application 1 year ago with Industrial Engineer occupation (non-CSL, non-MODL, not sponsored), and my application is one of the last priorities. Today I received Victorian government state sponsorship for another occupation (plant engineer) which is in CSL. Now I am double minded whether to lodge a 2nd 176 CSL sponsored application with plant engineer occupation or not? Necessary to add that I have sufficient skills and experience in both occupations and my final destination in Australia is Victoria. I have also checked with DIAC and they have confirmed in writing that it is possible to have a 175 and a 176 visa application in parallel, however a separate application fee needs to be paid for each. Please kindly advise, Siavash
  25. Please can someone tell me how the residential rates are calculated (council tax equivalent). I just read that the rate is So if I've understood that correctly, a property valued at say $275,000 has rates payable of $11825. Surely not! :shocked: The rate was taken from the City of Perth Gov site.... Please can someone advise. Thanks so much
