  7. Hi All, I have applied for my 187 RSMS application in May 2016 when i was on bridging visa A and because of that i was granted a BVC with Nil conditions. In December 2018 my nomination and visa was refused that business doesn't need a manager. we appealed to AAT and i was given same BVC with NIL conditions and yesterday we have lost the appeal and now going for FCC and will have to apply for another BVC. My question is about working rights. Will it come with same working rights as my previous BVC ? or do i need to apply for work rights separately? i am asking all this because i need to make arrangements at my work place by giving them enough notice if i am going to loose my work rights for some time. Incase i need to apply for work rights by showing financial hardship, do i need to mention about my de facto partner name as my family who is on a student visa and not capable to supporting me or should i not mention about her, Is she my family in Australia?? Please please please help me by answering these couple of questions about my working rights when applying for a new BVC for my FCC for 187 RSMS application. thank you

    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

    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
  15. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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

    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

    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 ?
