  1. Hello guys, this is my first post here so I have to thank all of you guys for your contribution it helped me a lot so far. there is a special place in heaven for you :notworthy: so, anyway I just finished lodging my application for nomination and successfully uploaded all the right documents including a copy of the verification email (of my limited occupation) and I will pay the fees in about two hours. My question is : what is the possibility of refusal of my application and why the reason might be ? obviously that question is out of worrying but you can think of it in a statistical form ... what is the success percentage of nominating a limited occupation after successfully being verified ??? BTW I know this forum is mainly for brits so I can`t miss the chance to greet u guys from the land of the pharaohs itself "great old Egypt" :hug: I wish I can meet some of you when (and if) I become canberran (is this even a word ?!!)
  2. Hi, Could anyone tell me how long it takes for SBM Unit (for ACT State Sponsorship) to verify a "limited" occupation? They require me to send them via email the following: 1) Current CV 2) Current Skills Assessment 3) IELTS results with 8 overall and 8 in speaking 4) Evidence of sufficient employment opportunities in ACT for your nominated occupation I am just awaiting the skills assessment from Vetassess the rest is ready to be sent off. Unfortunately they do not specify how long it takes for them to verify the "limited" occupation and you can only apply for state sponsorship after this has been granted. Many thanks.
  3. Hi, may name is akiong. i am from high risk country my journey began in Australia in 2004, i am recent graduate from university in Melbourne (major in IT) (i barely finished my degree with a lot of hassle during my study coz english problem and the subject is to hard). it took me more than 5 years to finish bachelor degree. i finish my study at the end of 2010. i heard that i can apply for pr from my friend, but i was under qualified: 1) i could not not get all band 7 on my ielts test and i even could not get 6 on my first two test due to limited English skill ( i am seldom to speak and communicate with English), but somehow i still manged to get it during my last attempt before my student visa expired on March 2011 2) i never worked in a company and never pay tax to the government not even a single contribution ( no expereince at all) because i saw a lot of my friend managed to get a job only with temporary visa 485 and bridging visa (because they could not apply for a pr and some them still waiting for almost one year). my friend told me that i hve to get a job to be able to apply However, i am lucky that somebody told me that i can be sponsored by may aunt. bu the thing is my aunt who is also jobless but she is a citizen relied on government funding but she is willing to sponsor me so that i can apply for 886 family sponsored. at first i dont want to apply because i dont know whether she can sponsor me coz she is jobless and the application is expensive. but i dont want to come back to my country coz live is suck at my country. due to some reason and problems to get all documents required, i applied 886 almost 6 months after my graduation (so theoretically i almost late) at the end of may. i even dont pay the immigration agent coz i think it is a bull**** coz they charge expensive:arghh: amount (1500), i don't bother to pay them and decide to lodge my application by my myself with very limited knowledge about immigration and all that craps. i just simply follow all the written guideline available at the website. here is my time; Lodge 886: end of may 2011 document attached : mid of June (coz have to wait for medic and other document), i even forgot to attach my passport photo coz i did not realize it was required. co allocation: no news at all and never heard any ( i no idea at all what is co mean until now, i just follow this format of timeline) Visa granted: 27 of june ( i only realised this when my friend told me that the priority processing has changed effective 1 july 2011. I was so scared and check he sent me a link to this forum regarding the new process. After reading this forum, i hopelessly check my email, and OMG....... :chatterbox: I saw automatic response email from immigration. I still couldnt believe at the first sight because there are so may people behind me even my friend who has already had job in IT field and better english and still waiting for pr, so i check the processing website and "applicant approved" :jiggy: So i can talk that australian immigration still have a good policy even a hopeless people like me still can get a pr without job, limited English skill, zero experience, never pay tax to Australia. i really like to thank the minister of immigration to allow people like me to take a chance to survive in Australia. i post this message so that al the people who share the same fate and situation like never give up to follow your dream to this country, this is a very fair country who still consider people like us still worth to give a second chance. Note: i dont force you people who read my post to believe my story, coz i also think my story hard to believe. my purpose is only to share information and i hope can be usefull. thx you for reading.

    Time Limited on LAFHA

    Can anyone please tell me if there is a limit on the amount of time LAFHA is paid for as OH is hoping to be offered a job with a company that does offer this benefit. What happens after this benefit comes to an end? Does it just end up getting taxed along with the rest of his $'s? As we will probably still have property (unless we can sell in a hurry), and we all know how easy that is in today's market lol, we would be grateful for any financial breaks that we could get. Also, I have heard that in some parts of Aus we will need to pay to send our children to a state school , presumeably as they will be classed as international students and not entitled to the same benefits as those born in Australia (the fee being paid directly to the government), I understand the in NSW it is $4,500 per annum and in the ACT it can be between $4.500 and $13,000. Is this true, and if so does it also apply to Victoria. Many thanks deb2
  5. Hi guys I have been searching the net and to be honest I am struggling to find decent information regarding my situation so I was wondering if anyone on here can help. My story is - I am on a defacto visa and heading to oz in Jan. I resigned from my perm job in London recently and they have asked me to stay on with them as a self employed consultant. I would not be salaried but would earn money on successful projects I deliver on. They have asked me to do this to assist them as they havent found a replacement for me in London. I have agreed and had thought it would be similar to here in UK, where you go to agencies like "first contact" and just set up a limited company very easily and contract through that. I would be self employed but would use their brand behind me. Has anyone got any information on what I will need to do or options for me? Thank you so much if you can help or at least provide guidance.
  6. I sent an email to ACT Government with documents for verification of Limited occupation. My IELTS results are as follows R9 W7.5 L7.5 S7.5 I have 3 years Australian work experience recenty confirmed by Vetassess Hold 2 Masters degrees and 1 AQF4 Diploma currently waiting for 885 as Cat 4 They replied that because I don't have 8 in speaking on IELTS, they can not verify my documents. They did not mind it is 3 years old. My question is: is here anyone who is living in Australia currently and who received a positive verification from ACT? They say people currently living in Australia can not apply for SMP. I belive this is a non sense, just wondering if they stick with it. Thanks! ------------------------------------------------- This is a double post, I accidentaly put it under New ACT SMP thread. Please remove if from that thread if that is a problem. Thanks

  8. The ACT has today advised that it will contact all currently ACT sponsored General Skilled Migration applicants to confirm that they are maintaining their commitment to the ACT, and giving them 28 days to so indicate. This applies to anyone who has a current subclass 886 or 176 application with the Department and who is sponsored by the ACT. As you are aware, the State Migration Plan, that we hope to have finalised by end October, will limit the number of 176/886 visa applicants that the ACT Government is able to nominate. Government sponsorship will also become more valuable as DIAC implement their processing priorities and non sponsored applicants join the end of the queue. We are currently contacting all ACT Government clients who have a pending 176/886 visa application. We are seeking confirmation of their employability in the ACT and their genuine, ongoing commitment to living in Canberra. A copy of the email below has been sent to your clients personal email address. The indication is that each state may only be able to sponsor a specified maximum number of visas in each calendar year, and so therefore after winnowing their lists the states will be forced to rank candidates. The implication is that not everyone currently sponsored by a state will receive the benefit of priority processing under the State Migration Plans. It may be that the states can withdraw sponsorship for people already sponsored but I think the legislation on that is ambiguous and probably DIAC would hesitate to allow that to happen where people have already expended thousands of dollars in costs. On the other hand it's most likely that the legislation does allow the states to be choosy with respect to who gets included in the State Migration Plan, since that is ultimately just a question of prioritising. Hold onto your hats people this might be a bumpy ride. Cheers, George Lombard

  10. I am concerned about how all of the recent movements (and especially more recently emails from states such as ACT evaluating suitability of candidates of even existing SS's - see positing "State Migration Plans - Numbers to be limited") will affect my existing granred visa subclass 475: I am particularly concerned about comments such as "It may be that the states can withdraw sponsorship for people already sponsored..." and "I think all the states will be forced to make life and death decisions concerning the people they have already sponsored as well as the ones they want to sponsor now" My situation: - I applied for my SS through SA sometime in 2008 and was granted not long thereafter - I applied for Visa Subclass through DIAC Jan 2009 - Visa granted 1 July 2009 - Visa activated 6 March 2010 - Visa valid from 6 march 2010 to 5 March 2013 (3 years, in which time I have to live in SA for 2 years, and work there for 1 year) We returned to the UK and plan to settle in Aus approx May 2011 (which means we will miss the 2 year living requirement by 2 months, but will hopefully rely on obtaining a visa 487 which applies if you "...need more time to meet the residence and/or employment criteria for a permanent visa, you can apply to extend your visa...you will be granted a Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 487) that expires four years after your first provisional skilled visa was granted", which means we will be okay till 30 June 2013, which means we will be able to fulfil the 2 and 1 year requirements for PR My question is: All this talk of SS being re-evaluated based on possible employability in states, and threats to excisting SS's. Does this apply only to existing SS with no visa grant from DIAC, or can DIAC turn around and withdraw the immi visa completely
  11. I am planning to move to Melbourne with my 2 kids 14 and 10. Prob going to aim to move in Jan in time for a couple of weeks before the new school term. I was hoping to move out, get temp accomodation then find somewhere part or fully furnished, however most of the properties on the market seem to be unfurnished. I should be able to secure a job bringing in about $65- $75 basic (and then work my hind legs off to earn more) however will have minimum required to bring with me, I will be on a limited budget. Any pointers in regards to good neighbourhoods (we are used to a rural village in UK but i need to be in reasonable distance of the CBD to reduce time away from kids) and also pointers in regards to either renting or furnishing on the cheap would be gratefully received. Feel like I am rambling a bit, but this is a massive step, so need to make sure I have all eventualities thought out! Also not worked out how to say thanks to threads- if anyone could help me on that too!... I've a long way to go, and not just airmiles!!! Thanks guys, Jade

    limited company set up

    Start a new contrac job soon, can anyone pls advise if it is worthwhile setting up a ltd co in oz for contractors as it certainly was tax advantageous in the UK. I hear Company tax is 30%, compared to UK 21%, but can still be worth it as top Oz tax rate is 45%, also the rules for tax deductable expences and spouse dividends would be useful to hear your views, lets not give our hard earned cash up so easily to the Oz government, it's expensive here as it is in WA.
  13. Hi, Even though this is my first post, I'm a regular visitor of PIO. I've been reading posts on PIO regarding dodgy agents promoting VET courses as pathway to PR that have been linked to India and the sub-continent, and China. I'd like to share an advertisement of a MARA registered agent that appeared in an Indian community newspaper (latest October 2009 issue), published in Melbourne: [link removed by Gollywobbler] This is just one of the many advertisements that appear in these newspapers which are being distributed freely around Melbourne and Sydney. As one can see, the agent is clearly promoting PR pathway courses and offering bonuses to students as well!! I DO NOT blame Indian or Chinese students to abuse the pathway - clearly the Australian Government is to be blamed as they have issued visas to these students, allowed dodgy operators and agents to flourish their business! Majority of students have been misguided by their agents (including MARA registered agents) and this can be justified by the discussions held on SBS channel a couple of months back: SBS Insight
  14. Hi, I am hoping someone will be able to help me out on this one. I am currently a freelance translator English into Dutch living in the UK. My business is currently set up as a limited company, as my accountant has told us this is saving us a little money on tax. We believe we will be able to go to Perth later this year on a 176 visa, WA State Sponsored, and I am now starting to look into how to setup the business side of this. My questions are: 1) Would it be better for me to setup my business as a sole trader or as a limited company in Oz? 2) I believe, the same as with migration agents, you can only find a good and trustworthy accountant by word of mouth, it's no use just checking the yellow pages. So, does anyone know of an accountant in Perth that may be able to help me with the setting up of my business in Oz? Cheers, Karin
  15. Hi all, I am the director of my own limited company, with one employee, myself. Is it possible for me to sponsor myself for a temporary visa 457 to Australia whilst I wait for my never-going-to-be-processed 175 application to be granted?
