    Accounting 2019/20

    Hi guys, Does anyone know how likely is General Accountant to be removed from the list on visas 189, 190 and 489? Thanks, Gab
  2. https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2017L00549 The Australian Government is making changes to the Skilled Independent subclass 189 visa from the 1st of July 2017: Two separate pathways or "streams" will be available: a Points Tested Stream, and a New Zealand Citizen Stream. The maximum age permitted to apply for a subclass 189 visa under the Points Tested Stream will be 44 - ie applicants must be aged under 45 when the invitation to apply for the visa is issued by the Department of Immigration. The New Zealand Citizen Stream will facilitate New Zealand citizens who are already resident in and contributing to Australia to become permanent residents. More specifically, the New Zealand Citizen Stream will be available to New Zealand citizens who: Were usually resident in Australia on or before 19 February 2016; and Since that time have continued to be usually resident in Australia for at least five years before applying for the visa; and Have been contributing to Australia by earning a certain level of taxable income; and Meet mandatory health, character and security criteria. For New Zealand Citizen Stream applicants the total amount of the Visa Application Charge (VAC) payable to the Department of Immigration will be consistent with the VACs for the general skilled migration programme. However, concessional arrangements have been introduced to the New Zealand Citizen Stream, whereby 20 per cent of the VAC will be payable at the time of lodging the visa application, with the remainder of the VAC to be paid before the visa is granted. For Points Tested Stream applicants the reduction in the maximum age requirement will only impact those applicants who are invited to apply on or after the 1st of July, 2017, or who been issued with a visa invitation before the 1st of July, 2017 and who have not accepted the invitation at that date. Best regards.
  3. Hello, I am basically from Pakistan and applied for Visa 885 in June 2010. It's been more than 13 months now and i'm still stuck at god forsaken "Internal Checks". Do you guys have any idea about when my application's going to be finalised? Also i went to Pakistan in August 2010 for almost 2 months and got married. I notified my case officer regarding the change of circumstances. My CO was also replaced with another one in April,11. I am on SOL, occupation Chemical Engineer (233111) and priority processing category 3. Please help me out! 885 lodged 9th Jun10, Front loaded PCC and Meds, CO assigned July 2010, Form 80 submitted 21 July10. CO replaced April,11. Stuck at Internal Checks :sad:
  4. Hi all This list is my compilation of a) what looks like the new SOL, b) the list of occupations for sponsored visas (not ENS) and c) 457 work permits, for applications lodged on/after July 1. Please verify your standing against the offical lists, this is just a personal compilation. Column order is ANZSCO number, Occupations, then 457, Sponsored and Independent. If any occupation is not on any one list it will show as " ---- " Hire A Migrant focuses on the Sponsored and 457 categories, but we also help Independent visa holders too. 111111 - Chief Executive / Managing Director >>> 457 / --- / --- 111211 -

  6. Can anyone recommend a good independent financial advisor who can assist in the transfer of my UK pension to Australia? I am based in Frankston near Melbourne. I've been living here for over a year (emmigrated on 02/03/2010) and realise I probably should have done something about it by now! Afraid it got put on the back burner as life has been a little hectic since we arrived... Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you Janet
  7. And the best is that .....The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change. The Earth's surface really is getting warmer, a new analysis by a US scientific group set up in the wake of the "Climategate" affair has concluded. The Berkeley Earth Project has used new methods and some new data, but finds the same warming trend seen by groups such as the UK Met Office and Nasa. The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change. "Climategate", in 2009, involved claims global warming had been exaggerated. Emails of University of East Anglia (UEA) climate scientists were hacked, posted online and used by critics to allege manipulation of climate change data. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-15373071
  8. Hello, am currently living in perth and have over 4 months left on my first years working holiday visa, with my 2nd year almost secured. I am fully qualified electrician from england, 29 years old, completed the full 4 year appernticeship so have the full lot of certificates and my JIB card. I have only been qualified just over 1 year, but have been in the game for over 8 years, 4 as an apprentice and before that as a adult trainee or sparks mate. I have 5 months experience over here as a TA working in NSW, QLD and now WA. I have been thinking what my next step is going to be, i have been offered sponsorship but dont like the idea of being owned by a company for upto 2 years before i can leave them and become a permanent resident. so i have decided i want to go for the 175 visa, i dont mind paying for it myself if once granted i can do or go where i like, plus be classed as a permanent resident imediatley. just want to know if it would be easy for me to get it with not being qualifed that long, and how long i would be looking on waiting for it to be granted once i went for it, and who i should deal with to sort it all out. any help would be much appreiciated thanks
  9. Hi Any info on Insurance Companies we could use instead of locking ourselves into the company moving our stuff to WA. Or have you found the deals given by the removal companies OK. Thanks
  10. Please help ! I have applied for Australian Migration as Skilled – Independent (Migrant) subclass 175 on 18th January 2009. Since I was not contacted even though the cut off date for assigning a Case Officer for the visa subclass 175 application crossed my date of lodgement, I posted online queries and I was replied that I was placed in Priority 5 instead of Priority 4. I immediately called DIAC and found out that the ASCO code during the time of application lodgement was 2231-79 instead of 2231-19. I was advised to email an attachment of the Australian Computer Society assessment sheet to GSM.documents@immi.gov.au which proved that I was granted the ASCO code 2231-19 by ACS along with other case details . The correction was made on 26th July 2011. Later, a Case Officer was assigned to my application on 23rd August. On 29th August, the Case Officer refused my visa application stating the following in the attachment titled 'Decision Record': Reasons for decision The visa class that you applied for includes 2 subclasses of visa. These are: Skilled (Migrant) (class VE) ● Skilled Independent (subclass 175) ● Skilled Sponsored (subclass 176) I have considered your application against the criteria for all subclasses in the VE visa class. Under migration law a visa cannot be granted unless the applicant meets the legal requirements that are specified in the Act and the Regulations. After careful consideration of all the information you have provided, I am not satisfied that you satisfy the criteria for the grant of VE subclass 175 (Skilled - Independent) as set out in Australian migration law. Therefore, your application for this visa has been refused. Schedule 2 of the Migration Regulations 1994 sets out the criteria to be met for the grant of Skilled (Migrant) (class VE) subclass 175 (Skilled - Independent) visa. 175.212 is one of the mandatory requirements for the grant of the visa and it states: 175.212 (1) The skills of the applicant have been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation. (2) If the assessment mentioned in subclause (1) is made on the basis of a qualification obtained in Australia while the applicant was the holder of a student visa, the qualification was obtained as a result of studying a registered course. Skills assessment does not match nominated occupation You lodged an application with a nominated skilled occupation of Computing Professionals nec ASCO 2231-79 but your skilled assessment from the Australian Computer Society (ACS) lists your skilled application as Systems Programmer ASCO 2231-19. I find that your skills assessment and nominated occupation do not match and it is a legislative requirement that you must nominate the same occupation as your skills assessment at time of application. You therefore do not satisfy 175.212(1) as your skills assessment and and nominated occupation do not match at time of application. Assessment for alternate visa subclass I have also assessed your application against the criteria for the grant of a subclass 176 of the Skilled (Migrant) (class VE) visa. Schedule 2 to the Regulations sets out the criteria to be met for the grant of a 176.212 is one of the mandatory requirements for the grant of the visa and it states: 176.212 (1) The skills of the applicant have been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as suitable for the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation. (2) If the assessment mentioned in subclause (1) is made on the basis of a qualification obtained in Australia while the applicant was the holder of a student visa, the qualification was obtained as a result of studying a registered course. As stated above I find that your skills assessment and nominated occupation do not match and it is a legislative requirement that you must nominate the same occupation as your skills assessment at time of application. You therefore do not satisfy 176.212(1) as your skills assessment and and nominated occupation do not match at time of application. I do not think that this is fair as I had made the required correction a month before it was taken up by the Case Officer. The Case Officer seems to have handled this very casually and did not give me the benefit of doubt in this situation. This decision will definitely change the course of my future as I have made many plans in hopes of being granted the visa and I do not know what to do now. Please advise as I am unable to concentrate on anything. I am mentally very disturbed because of this outcome.
  11. Hi, I am new here *waves* Just looking for a bit of advice really. I've got a couple of specific questions which Google cannot seem to answer. OK so my husband's occupation is on the ENSOL. He's an insurance broker. He's just applied for a job in Australia. He is studying for, but hasn't yet got his Diploma. As for me, my job isn't on any list. I am a crew planner for an airline. Basically I plan the crew rosters. However I do have a degree! So my questions are these: 1) If husband has applied for a job in Australia, will the fact that he has no diploma yet mean instant NO? 2) Is the Diploma in insurance recognised in Australia? 3) Is there a visa I can apply for as the main applicant, or is it best that my husband is the main applicant? This is my first post so I hope I've done everything right! Apologies if not! :v_SPIN:
  12. Hi there everyone! I'm having mixed feelings about the 175 visa. I am concerned that it'll actually take 18-24 months. Could someone please let me know if this is fairly accurate or is it based on a worst case scenario?:cry: Also, I was thinking of applying and visiting on a tourist visa for 3 months while the 175 was in process - :arghh:smart idea or not? All the forums are telling me different things, so I thought I'd see what feedback I can get from you guys! If it matters at all, I hold dual citizenship between Ireland and Canada. Thanks in advance!:hug:
  13. Hi my husband has just started the process of applying for Skilled Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175)? I will be joining him as his wife of course! Has anyone else followed this route and could advise on how long it took from start to grant of visa? Our agent say around 18mths as they receive 100,000 applications per year. We were hoping the process would take no longer than 12mths.
  14. Hi All, I have few doubts in mind, request all of you to share your thoughts/experiences. Suppose if someone gets rejected in one occupation from ACS and gets himself re-assessed in some other occupation, does work permit indicates in which ANZSCO code or in which skill one has obtained work permit. Does Australian organizations/companies ask for a relieving/experience letter from the last organization ? Regards.
  15. My boyfriend and I are applying for the Skilled - Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175) and want to know how we attach documents to an electronic visa application. We have started to fill in the form but it doesn't say anywhere how we attach the documents. We have to get ort application in by June 30th so all advice gratefully received asap! Thanks.
  16. 2 days ago I lodged an application for the Family Skilled Sponsored 176 migrant Visa. Due to some changes in my sponsored family's circumstances, they will not be able to offer the sponsorship as previously thought. My question is, is it possible to get my application changed to Skilled Independent 175 if I meet all the requirements? Thanks for your help.
  17. New rules match best and brightest migrants to places. PEOPLE who want to come to Australia as independent skilled migrants will have to ask permission to apply from next year. The federal government has announced radical changes to how it selects winners in key skilled-migration categories. From July 2012, many would-be skilled migrants will have to lodge an online expression of interest and wait for an invitation before they can make a formal application. The Immigration Department website says the new system will help "deliver the skills Australia needs by matching the best and brightest migrants to the available places in the migration program".
  18. Hi, hoping someone can offer advice on the following. Been in Australia (WA) for just over a year now on a 457, about to apply for PR. My employer has nominated me for sponsorship (856) and I am required to sign a 3 year contract with employer to be eligible for this visa. I have heard of people leaving the company afer 6month-1 year on this route, but wondered what the implications may be? if any? Im not desperate to leave my employer, but would prefer the freedom to change employer at any time should my persoanl circumstances changes, ie, new home - commuting distance /better job opportunity elsewhere. The other factor in this, I have seen colleagues go down this route and had PR granted within a matter of weeks, how long might the 175 take? Would I automatically enter onto a bridging visa if I were to apply for independent PR (175)? My 457 expires Mar 2012. Many advantages of going down the 856 route it would seem, and less likely that application would be declined, but I dont want to be restricted in any way or lose PR if I wish to embark on a new venture within the 3 year period. I think it has also been written into my contract that I must remain working Full time throughout (not sure), anyway, I'm so indecisive - any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Natale
  19. Hi I have a skilled independent visa. I came over to Australia but it didn't work out. I had to return to the UK and have since met my partner. Together we are looking at moving down under. Does anyone have any advice about how to add her to my visa. We have been together for well over 12 months. Thanks in advance.
  20. Does anyone have any success stories for a de facto visa application in similar situation to mine? My partner and I have been together for 3years but due to work committments have not lived together - he worked 12 hour shifts, in a location 2 hours away from me. I am a vet and am on call 17 nights a month which requires me to live 20 minutes away from my work. In october 2010 due to lack of work in uk and great prospects in oz, my partner moved out to australia and is now on a sponsored 457 application in perth where is FIFO. I have stayed in the uk, as he went out at short notice on a working holiday visa, but i am over 30 and also have 3 pets and a job which i could not just give up at such short notice. Now he has settled in and got a job we want me to join him asap, and are submitting a de facto application on his visa - what's the chances? We have all the usual evidence from family, friends, photos, holidays etc but no living together. I am a vet so i do have sufficient points of my own for a skilled independent visa, but am worried this could take ages to organise. If the de facto is unsuccessful, do I go out there on a temporary visa and pursue my application out there? If I take my pets (at considerable expense, but I really want them with me, and have thoroughly researched it) and move in with my partner in australia, how likely is it I will then be ok to stay out there? I can't afford to be without work for much more than a month or so. I don't want to try to get sponsorship as I would really like to be able to work part time in order to see my partner on his 5 days off (16 days on), and I want to be able to be flexible if he has to move locations for work etc. I have heard of things like bridging visas but the whole thing is very confusing to me! Any advice appreciated, thank you
  21. hi all am new on here, my husband and I want to begin the visa process this year (firstly my husband needs to have a skills assessment through the ACS) but I wondered if anyone could tell me the pros and cons of applying via a state sponsored visa as opposed to a general visa to OZ ie, is it faster to apply via the state, what are the restrictions etc? many thanks Tina
  22. Dear All, My visa-skilled independent classbn-subclass136 is due to expire july 2012, i have validated the visa-april 2008, it was issued july 2007. I am not sure whether i can move to australia before july 2012, however i don't want to loose the opportunity to live in asutralia at some stage.

    885 Independent skilled visa

    Hi all, I was just curious to know is it compulsary at the time of applying 885 Skilled onshore visa, that the applicant needs to be present at the time of application. Or incase I am overseas, can my agent act on my behalf and lodge the application? Can any RMA/Pom member shed some light on this. Cheers Adi
  24. Hi, I am a newbee, so please excuse (and redirect) if i am repeating an already discussed topic here.. I have submitted for ACS in August 2010, and am awaiting results. In the mean time, i have been preparing for application to Visa. I am a network programmer, working on embedded systems for last 6 years, and with C language being the programming skill. As anybody else, my main objective is to land up in a state where there are more oppurtunities matching my skills. I have been observing Job websites such as Seek for some time now, and understand that Melbourne might be the best place for my profile. Now, here is my dilema: I have been told by my migration agent that- 1. Getting a Sponsorship from Victoria state is not easy. Even after they open up (assuming they will have my skill in their new SMP plan), there is a good chance that it will be rejected. 2. The other choice i have is, to opt for Independent Visa category. However, thanks to the latest priority arrangement, this category might take a long time (may be upto 2 years) to get Visa grant. So, dilema is - Do i choose a different state (such as Queensland) for sponsorship, and look for jobs there (which might not be as abundant as Victoria)? Or Do i choose Independent category (175 sub class) and hope for the best.. I also have another query - does a Job website like Seek really reflect the right Job market picture? I have heard that only a small percentage of jobs are advertised in such Websites - is this true? Would really appreciate any inputs..Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi, Could anyone please recommend an independent mortgage broker in Australia/Sydney? We are really keen to liaise with someone prior to moving to get a realistic idea of how much we will be able to borrow. I've done the generic online calculators but would like to discuss. My husband has an AUssie passport so no issues with VISAS etc. Thank you!
