  1. I don't recall seeing this discussed on the forum to date, but those who have or who are lodging an EoI should be aware of the following provision in the recently published migration regulations: The applicant’s score, when assessed in relation to the visa under Subdivision B of Division 3 of Part 2 of the Act, is not less than the score stated in the invitation to apply for the visa. The score stated in the invitation to apply for the visa will be based on the EoI - so if it subsequently transpires upon the submission of documentation and assessment by the DIAC case officer that the points claimed in the EoI were too high the visa application must be refused, whether or not the actual points are 60 or more. Areas that are likely to be particularly prone to error and overclaims are work experience and qualifications, where it presently seems the information in the pop up boxes of the EoI are insufficient and some would say misleading. Relevant work experience (for example) is an area where it seems there is insufficient detail. For those who are looking at a State Sponsored subclass 190 or 489 EoI/visa application I would encourage a cautious approach to claiming points, as you should receive an invitation whether you claim 60 or (say) 75 points. Those who are lodging an EoI with a view to a 189 visa being granted are in a more difficult position, and unless they are across the issues technically - particularly in the work experience area - should almost certainly be engaging a competent migration agent. Unless things change at a legislative level - which I suggest is improbable - I fear we will see quite substantial numbers of applicants being unsuccessful in the coming months, as the general prioritisation of EoI's with more points means there is an inherent bias which encourages overclaims by intending migrants. Best regards.
  2. Hi everyone, We are still pulling all the paperwork together to submit to vetassess so we have got no chance of ever applying for the visa before the July deadline. Does anyone know how likely it would be for sparks (or any other trades for others out there who may be interested) to be invited once the tests etc have been completed and passed? My husband is nervous about spending all the money to do the vetassess test and then for us never to be invited!! :unsure:
  3. Hi All, may be a bit soon to ask, but does anyone have any ideas whether the state sponsored lists will continue under the expression of interest scheme they are planning to bring in? Thanks
  4. The announcement today of these changes taking place from July next year and leading to an initial round of sponsorships in January 2013 is being clarified by DIAC in seminars being held around Australia at the end of May. Until then it's too early to speculate on just how the system will operate other than to say that it will drive more people towards employer sponsorship. The FAQs for the changes, impenetrable as they are, are here: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/model-faq.pdf . I imagine that the model of lodging a structured CV is going to lead to many verification problems - again, the devil will be in the detail. And in the meantime, orderly processing of GSM applications continues - most people planning to apply should be able to lodge before the changes take effect, and after that date it will be necessary to lodge your EOI and pray. Cheers, George Lombard

    Expression of Interest Queensland S S

    We've now applied for a Queensland State Sponsorship. On the website there is a link for Expression of Interest. Does anyone know if this has to be filled in and submitted as part of the application or is it optional for those who want to find employment before they go? Many Thanks no worries hubby just phoned queensland and it's optional Tracey
