    PR Visa from Ireland

    Hi all, I am new to the forum so thanks for accepting me. I am looking for a starting point in beginning the process in moving permanently to Australia. A little bit about me - 34 years old, family of 3, partner and 3 year old child. I am in the finance industry and have been for 14 years - I am in a senior non management role with a certificate in a specialised area as my highest education. My partner if qualified in childcare and looks after children and has been doing this for 7 years. We would be looking to move to Melbourne. Where do I need to start to move this forward? How do I understand which Visa is the correct one to apply for etc. I also have family over in Melbourne and they have been there for some time. Thanks in advance. S

    Visa options ... confused

    Hi this is my first post and I’m sorry if it’s been asked or I’m being silly basically we were applying to move to SA on a skills PV ( my husband is a chef) and the visa agency have just told us as we were finishing off that this is not available and nor is the temp 491 SA visa and our only option it to live to Victoria is this true, is there any other option as we really wanted to be in Adelaide near my family ( I’m not the main applicant so can’t use them) thank you in advance
  3. I have just completed my Occupational Therapist Degree in the U.K and simultaneously met my future husband in Orange NSW :). I am 47 and it appears that my age works against me WRT work visas. Is there anyone who could advise me what my options are? Many thanks Jasmin
  4. Hi Folks, Since I lodged my application for three months and I have to meet the school commerce next year, does any one can give me advise except waiting? Thousand thanks

    Going back to SA

    Good morning Our bridging to protection visa where denied and we decided to go back to SA. Say for instance we havent got money to pay for flight tickets we were told that we can speak to immigration but then we wil be liable "debt to commonwealth". Which means if we ever wanted to immigrate again we would have to pay that money. Does anyone know for how long one would be liable? Thanks
  6. Hi Everyone, Newbie here. My partner and I are in the process of applying for the new 491 Visa under my partners skilled occuptation of Pastry Chef/Cook. We were in contact with a company based in Edingburgh who gave us a successful assessment and we were confident that he would get the ball rolling for us, after our conversation. We provided him all the relevant information and was told he was resarching/confirming my partners french qualification. Since then, he has stopped replying to messages and has gone cold on us. I was wondering if any of you could recommend reuputable mirgration agent in the UK, who are used to dealing with applications with French qualifications and keep us through the loop throughout. My partners qualification was obtained in Rennes, France. Qualification - CAP (Certificate D' Appitude Patissier) - Patissier, Glacier, Chocolatier, Confiseur Thanks

    Secondary teacher help!?

    Hi, After doing my working holiday (1 year) a few years ago, I am desperate to go back permanently! Just have no idea where to start. I do have another year (farm work completed). Am I best going out and doing another year on a working holiday? Applying for a 190? Applying for a 189? I am 28 years old with a PGCE + BA, should be able to get the 20 points in the english test. My partner also wants to come on a de-facto visa - however, he hasn't used any working holiday visas yet (so that is always an option). Am I better off staying in my job longer to get more points etc??? Any help much appreciated! I have been looking on websites for months and I am not getting any clearer information.
  9. Hello Forum.. This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind. Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during: the application process after grant is received pre-landing preparations post landing experiences and lessons learnt This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others! God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.

    189 Australian Study Query

    Hello All, Apologies if this has been answered somewhere. I have tried looking and struggled to find the right answer. So I am currently researching into the 189 Visa requirements and have come stuck on the overall education and Australian study requirement section. I aim to top up my FdSc to a full BSc this year in the UK. However, I am confused as to whether my BSc has to be closely related to my occupation (which I have been in for over 8 years and intend to use as my skilled Visa application). Yes it's on the skilled list. - Horse trainer. I'm considering topping up onto either an Animal Science, Wildlife Conservation or Equine science degree. Would this affect my application depending on the degree type considering my occupation is Equine based? Is it best I follow the equine top up route? Secondly, I have not studied in Australia nor had intended to until I had moved out there. As part of the Visa application it asks whether you've done so, is this vital to your application? Must you do it or have people been accepted without having done this? Sorry if any of this is confusing but also thank you very much for any advice you have. Hana
  11. Good Evening, Just wondering if anybody could help with the CV format required by Vetassess for the 1st part of the application. I am just editing my cv to match the relevant style of CV they want. Also, I have been working since I left school in Ref./Air con. trade but am only getting the VETASSESS assessment for the Offshore training record to make life easier on arrival to australia as my wife is the main applicant on the 189 visa. (I know this can add 5 points if needed, Hopefully not.) Should I provide evidence back to when I left school and started in the trade? or should I just cover the minimum 5 years with my current employer for a positive result? Any help is appreciated. Thanks Eddie

  13. Hi everyone, this is my first post here, I'm a pastry cook and 462 visa holder. I have more than 5 years experiences so I want to apply 190.

    Pregnant on a Student Visa

    Thanks for reading everyone! I came to AUS last year on a WHV where I met my current partner. I enrolled in school so I could further my education as a nurse. I found out last week that I’m 3 months pregnant and I’m freaking out! Has anyone else ever been in this situation? My course doesn’t start until October and I’m due in February which means I won’t be able to finish it. What does that mean for my visa? Please give me any and all advice and if you’ve been in this situation I’d love to hear from you! Sincerely, Worried like HELL
  15. Hello everyone, I need your help desperately!!

We have no idea and need to get them sent off! how did you all get around this or did you use a different courier?

    Moving from uk to Australia

    Hi sorry if this sounds boring to some or seems daft but I have been looking around the internet looking for advice and getting very overwhelmed by the different sites... A friend of mine recommended this site so here’s my situation. I am 32yrs old my wife is 33yrs old, i have 3 children daughter 11yrs old and 2 sons one 9yrs and other 5months. I am a hgv diesel mechanic and i have done a online application and get an email back saying with my occupation and having family already in Australia that are willing to sponsor us, the agency are pushing for me to transfer money to them to get things started i have done research about the firm and had both positive and negative reviews does anyone have an idea how much the application process is and hoe long it takes as some sites say years and some say months and like i say it’s getting a little overwhelming but it’s been our dream to move over and family ties are no longer a problem.... any advice would be greatly appreciated ?
  17. Hey! So I've just moved to Brisbane from the UK, I'm on a skilled migrant visa (from my dad - and the rest of my family live in Melbourne) so I'm a permanent resident, and I've just applied for my tax-file number which is being processed. I'm 25 and a circus artist (so I know a few people and have sent e-mails to relevant people in that industry) but what I'm wondering about is getting a part time job in a cafe or something, I have experience working in a cafe as a waitress but am not a barista (sadly), I'm only here for 3 months then I have to go back to the UK for a tour and so I would be looking for something super short term, I know a lot of people backpack in Australia so I was thinking that it might be relatively easy to find that kind of work but I was just wondering if anyone has done that or if that's a totally unreasonable expectation that I have? Or if there is anything I should do to make myself more employable on the short-term? Or if anyone knows of short-term work either artistic or just general that I could get involved in? Or if anyone wants to go for a coffee? - just putting that out there. Any advice would be welcome! Thanks, Michelle

    ANMAC proffesional letter

    Hi. I graduated in 2016 with a bachelor of nursing. I started my grad program last year and finished this year in February. The rotations for my grad program included Surgical ward, Rehabilitation, The NSW Eye centre, and main theatres. All these rotations were 3 months each but I have a cumulative experience of 12months. So I submitted my professional reference for ANMAC however they requested that I provide more information about your individual daily tasks, clinical skills and competencies as observed by your supervising nurse. So with that being said how do I write a reference that includes all these components. Also, do I have to apply under one ANZSCO code? The visas I am applying for are the 189 visa or 190. If you have written a letter recently could you please help me out.

    Age query

    My partner and I have been advised it's better to go over on a whv as we are still of the age to apply for one. I plan on going to Australia in October, two weeks before I turn 31. If I leave Australia when I'm 31 can I still re enter Australia even though I'll be 31? Thanks
  20. Hello everybody, first of all let me apologise If I have started a new topic where I shouldn't have, I have never used forums before. . I submitted the nomination and application for 186 direct entry on Jan 21 2017 as a graphic post press trades-person. I have been waiting for 13 months and my lawyers have not been contacted once ! The only thing my lawyers always say is to wait. This uncertainty is nerve wrecking , also this occupation apparently is no longer on the list. Does anyone knows if this affects the application and / or processing times? Do we know if the processing times for 186 direct entry vary according to occupation.Thanks in advance for any info.. Any advice would be appreciated. I have posted this message in other topics but I don't have not received one reply, so my best guess is that It is in the wrong section of the forum. This wait is really affecting me and my dependant.

    Visa 186 TRN

    Daft question please bear with me. I've just applied for a 186 ENS permanent. The government agency that has employed me did my trade assessment. When i passed everything they lodged my labour agreement then supplied me with a TRN for the visa application. All filled out and submitted. My question is the visa uploads recommends trade assessment, skills paperwork and a whole bunch of other stuff etc. I obviously don't have this as they did it all in Australia so my question is does my unique TRN number have all this information for the case officer to see when they look at my application? I can't find a straight answer anywhere and I'm baffled. Ta in advance folks.
  22. Hi everyone, May of this year we landed on Australian soil and went to my husbands family in Richmond NSW. We are currently renting a property here however don't feel its the "Auzzie dream" we dreamt of. We were introduced to toowoon bay which i LOVE! However have been told for my husbands work (electrician) would be best to head more towards Newcastle way. I do not want to be in a busy city... we have 2 young boys 4 and 1. a little dog. My boys LOVE the beach... and I love to grab a coffee.. so ideally somewhere that is not too busy but still not isolated.. beach a short drive at the most.. and somewhere i can get my coffee would be perfect!! We are very outdoorsy and love animals.. My oldest is very happy with the green tree frogs and lizards we find in our garden at the moment!! I am currently studying in children services from home whilst looking after my boys but hope to start work beginning of next year. Our tenancy runs out in July so starting to look up where we are heading... Honestly cant wait to get out of this property! Can anyone provide us with some information regarding good places to live!! We haven't really had chance to make any friends here as my husband has to travel to sydney every day and works long shifts.. nightmare! can take him up to 2 hours to get home in the evening! Hasn't been the most brilliant start but hoping things perk up with a move to a more ideal area for us and the kids! Thanks everyone x

    Help expediting a visitor visa

    Greetings from snowy Minnesota in the US! Over the past couple months, I've been planning a dream vacation for my elderly parents. I can't remember a time when my mom didn't talk about wanting to go to Australia. Well, I have everything booked and I then applied for everyone's ETA. Everyone else's immediately approved, while mine didn't. I had one bad night in college where I was charged with reckless driving 10 years ago & spent a night in jail. I claimed it on my ETA & I doubt that'll get approved. So I've started filling out the Visitor Visa 600 form. Tomorrow, I should get the results of the Overseas Penal Clearance Certificate, so that I can attach it to my application. Since you're all pretty knowledgeable about this, our trip is planned to start 3/3/18...what are my chances that I can get approved if I submit it tomorrow? Any tips/recommendations for me? Thank you so so so much for anything that you can provide me. Hopefully my next question will be about restaurant recommendations :D.

    Which Visa is for me?

    Hello. Found this site through Facebook. I’m just hoping for direction on what visa is best for me in my circumstances. Im single, 27, reside in the UK. At home I’m in the Public Sector working for an Emergency Service with a degree in policing. I’m fully aware this isn’t a skill or a career that could be brought across to Australia. Ive visited Perth, WA lots. I’m actually here at the moment. Half of my family live here, my Dad is a Australian Citizen but wasn’t when I was born (his dad was). He left when I was four, re married an Aussie and attained his citizenship via that method. He still lives in WA as do my half siblings, grandparents, aunties, uncles etc. I really want to move to Australia permanently. As for many it’ll be a massive move for me, selling my house, car, leaving work. I’d like to get into something with reasonable pay but from the research I’ve done in my circumstances I think the only present way I can get into Australia is on a restricted 12 month working visa? Obviously it’s a lot to give up purely for that 12 month working visa with no guarantee of being able to stay, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for me or possible routes I could look down? Thanks for the help.
  25. Hi All, First timer here, so be kind... I'm a UK resident married to an Aussie Wife, we have been together for 9 years or so. Married for 2.5 Years. We have one 18month old little boy, with another one on the way. Due around July. The time has come, and we plan to head back to Aus in December. From what I can see, we will be able to get the kids Aus citizenship by descent, and this shouldn't cost too much, around £230 plus £95 for Additional newborn. I, on the other hand, will have to jump through the usual visa hoops and pay around 7k AUD. The waiting time appears to be around 11 months if applied in the UK and 22months in AUS. I'm interested in advice to see if there's a better way of doing things as if I apply here and don't get my passport or visa back in time for me to fly in December, then I might be better off flying out on a tourist visa, and then applying to stay as such. I would also be interested if anyone knows if there's a cheaper or better way of my doing things, as my wife and two kids i will all be citizens, will they still charge me 7k for the privilege, I thought a while back they use to do free or cheaper visa's if you had young children etc. Any help would be appreciated.
