zxrninja250 posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi All, This is my first thread and will probably be pestering you all over the coming months as i am just about to tackle the 175 visa process head on without the aid of a migration agency........:-/ Does anyone have any helpful tips or advice on the application process and any hidden nasties I should look out for? I am an Automotive Electrician with 5 years experience but no qualifications in this area........ does this matter? I also have a level 2 Apprenticeship in the application of engineering techniques and an HNC in Mechanical Engineering. How do I go about getting a skills assessment for an Automotive Electrician with only the 5 years experience to go on? Can I just get references from my employer (or preferably my supervisor so I don’t need to tell my employer yet) and send them in a nice e-mail and await the outcome? Thank you for your time, Mark p.s. if I can be of any help to anyone let me know.
Hi all, We are just starting out on the Visa process. I have read through lots of information and think I have an idea of the steps required. Would appreciate some thoughts as to whether this is correct and some guidance if not! We will apply under my occupation of Podiatrist. From what I see we are eligible to apply for State Sponsorship from South Australia as I have 18 months work experience. 1. Book IELTS test - SA requires IELTS of 7.0 and our registering body requires Academic IELTS of 7.0. Next available near us is 2nd March. I'll also need to score 8 in order to get enough points to pass the new points test come July 2011. 2. Meanwhile gather docs etc to have skills assessed by relevant body - which is ANZPAC. 3. When (hopefully) passed IELTS, send Degree info, current registration info, employer reference and IELTS result to our registering body (ANZPAC). 4. Meanwhile, gather supporting information for state sponsorship application ie. research into SA, job market etc etc. 5. Once have positive skills assessment apply to SA for State Sponsorship. Any thoughts on how long this part can take? Or is it a case of how long is a piece of string? 6. Once (hopefully) have SS from South Australia, apply for 176 visa via the immi website. We aren't in a particular hurry to move but don't want to miss out if everything changes again in the near future. I'm also a little concerned about having to achieve 8.0 in the IELTS come July. Any thoughts on whether it may be achievable to get a visa application in by then or is that a pipe dream? Thanks for any input!
