    Goverment and vetassess fees!!

    Can anyone please clarify to me what the true costs are to do the vetassess test and apply for a state sponsored visa. I have been told a$1500 for vetasses when i thought it was a$600 and around a$3000 for the goverment fees. Is this right? Any help would be much appretiated, thanks.:eek:
  2. You could not make it up could you.:laugh: "Record warm weather in April and May was also blamed for this slowdown in growth. This explanation is bound to attract criticism from some commentators after the government was keen to blame cold weather for causing an economic contraction in the final quarter of last year." What a bunch of clowns. :laugh:
  3. Hi, does anyone know the amount of tax you will be charged on your Super-Fund after leaving the country once visa has been cancelled?
  4. The Tasmanian Government will be suspending the assessment of applications for offshore Skilled Sponsored (SS) subclass 119 visas and Skilled Regional Sponsored (SRS) subclass 475 visas between Monday 31 May 2010 and Friday 3 July 2010. This suspension will take place whilst the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) undertake a review of their Skilled Occupations List (SOL). During this period the assessment of all other visa applications will remain unchanged.
  5. Hi, any advice would be greatly appreciated about this catch 22 situation. I work for the Bureau of Meteorology as a Meteorologist and have been for nearly a year on a 457 visa. I want to apply for the subclass 131/856 employer sponsored visa to get PR. The Bureau really want me to stay (shortage position). However to get the 131/856 employer sponsored visa you have to be offered a permanent job of 3 years or more. If the Bureau create a position they have to advertise and then lots of Australians already working for the Bureau will apply and they have to be given the job because they Australia in preference to me (government rule). Any ideas how to get around this situation? They need me and I want to stay but seems the rules don't allow it. Don't really want to stay on the 457 visa. Thanks so much for any advice!:jiggy:

  8. Listining to Australian radio last night they were talking about this cutback in immigration that is affecting so many on here, they are lying....it has nothing to do at all with the global recession as they try and make out....it is because they are scared of the population explosion that is hitting Australia, this is what they are scared of....and this is why they are cutting back on immagrants....nothing to do with recession ata all. Australia is projected to grow at a rate of 65 per cent, well above the global average, a survey by the Washington-based private research body, the Population Reference Bureau, shows. The population is already growing at the fastest rate since post-war migration and the baby boom saw it explode in the 1950s and '60s , figures released yesterday by the Bureau of Statistics show. Australia population growth
