  1. Hello, I'm new to PomsInOz and am looking to got to Oz on a 190 SS visa. I made the decision in June of this year to emigrate to Oz and had been looking at the 457 Employer Sponsored route but it seems extremely difficult to land a job without the existing right to work in Australia, especially if you're offshore. Plus at the time I didn't think I would qualify on the points based visas as I don't have a tertiary skilled occupation such as a teacher, nurse, plumber etc. I went to the London Opportunities Overseas Expo last weekend and after speaking to a few migration agents it would seem that I do qualify as my occupation is on the CSOL list. Yay! :-) As such I'm at that crossroads now where I need to decide whether to use an agent, which doubles the total cost (I've been quoted £3k in MARA registered agent fees - Is this acceptable/over the odds?) or whether I apply without the support of an agent. I fear that going it alone may slow the process down some what as I'm no expert at this and don't know where to find all the right information and when I ned to do each bit. To give you some background. I'm 29. A British citizen (born and bred) with a UK passport. I have no ties in the UK (partner/mortgage/tenancy agreement/dependants etc.) so can leave as soon as my visa is granted if I want. I have a BA Honours degree and would say my English ability is better than average (not excellent as such, but good nonetheless). I haven't done the IELTS, skills assessment or EOI yet. I have no medical conditions and have no criminal record. I spent 6 months in Australia on a WHV back in 2008/9 and always said I'd go back to live and the time is now right. So, what I really want to know is what's the quickest way I can get a 190? If you think you've gained one in record time I want to hear from you and know what route you took to get it. Did you use an agent for some or all of the process or did you do the whole thing on your own? What resources did you use? What documents do you need and which can you prep in advance to speed things up? Any hints, tips or warnings would be hugely appreciated. I want to get there asap and start my new life :-) Thanks.

  9. Hi, I'm about to submit my ACS skills assessment - 261312 - Developer programmer. From what i gather it's one of 5 occupations on the SOL for 175? (http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/_pdf/sol-schedule3.pdf) 261111 - ICT business analyst 261112 - Systems analyst 261311 - Analyst programmer 261312 - Developer programmer 261313 - Software engineer So... Just before i submit my application, is there any reason why i shouldn't apply for 261312 - Developer programmer ? i.e. it's not at the bottom of their list of priorities? Thank you once again PomsInOz, David

  12. Hi People i am hit with a problem and i am in need of some advice from you good old people that know your beans regarding immigration. Well then as ever its complicated, but i will try to keep it short and sweet. I have been in Auss (perth) since 18th Dec 2007, firstly on a ETA holiday visa, this was set to expire after 90 days (13th March) so i extended the holiday visa online, for another 90 days which will take me to mid June before my time is up and i have to return to blighty. Since i landed i have been heavily involved in getting a sponsor 457 visa but as my time reaches a close i am thinking that a working holiday visa will be better for me and less hassle. The big problem i have is i have ' no further stay ' condition on my current holiday visa so i am not sure how this will work? Am i right in saying i can leave aus and go to bali or thailand, and apply for a working holiday visa there? If you know what your talking about and i must say i have great advice from the moderators before now then please spare 5 minutes to stop me whinging. Thanks again and bye:notworthy:
