Hi all, I’m new to the forum, just registered a few minutes ago, but have been reading posts here for some 3-4 months now, and some of them have been quite helpful. However, since everyone’s situation is unique, I feel like I should explain mine in detail, as reading these many posts here and on other site’s + trying to understand everything on the immi website is soon driving me a bit =). Especially as most of the time, I think I know how to go about to reach my dream, but then end up feeling blue coz of some obstacle found. So I’d be more than grateful for any help given! I should also mention that we’re all Swedish (EU) citizens. The dream is of course, for my family and I to get PR’s in Australia, and hopefully reside in Sydney! And this is our plan to get there; My brother (25 y) and I (30 y soon) will in February 2014, after hopefully being accepted at the universities we’ve applied to, fly to Sydney. We will study two years each. My brother holds a British LLB and Master of Law in IT from Sweden. In Australia, he needs to complement his degree by studying a sort of tailored law degree. I hold a BSc in Business Management from a UK uni, and will soon get my MSc in Informatics from a Swedish uni. In Sydney, I will study an ICT related degree, or possibly two just to have studied for two years. Thereafter, both of us will apply for the ‘Skilled – Independent (Residence) Visa (Subclass 885) for overseas student visa holders. We will both need to have a band score of 8 on the IELTS test, but I think we will both be able to do it. That will give my brother a total of 70 and me a total of 65 on the Points Test. When both of us have been able to pass the 65 mark, will then each of us get a PR? And how long does such a process normally take? To be eligible for the Points Test, we also need to nominate an occupation on the SOL list. My brother has two options, either Solicitor or Lawyer. Will he qualify for this or does he need to be a registered lawyer/solicitor? I was planning to nominate ICT Business Analyst as my occupation. It can currently be found on the SOL list, but not on the NSW State Nominated Occupation List. Does that change anything? For the PR (Subclass 885), it only says that I should nominate an occupation on the SOL, and get a positive assessment for my occupation. Would I not get a positive assessment if my nominated occupation is not on the NWS list? If not, the alternative would be to get a more technical ICT degree when in Sydney. Anyway, my parents are both over 50, but below the age to be considered aged parents, so they can only get a PR through us it seems? But they’ve said that whenever my brother and I get our PR’s, then will get ready to move down under. Now clearly, I want them to be able to move asap so we can all be together, but it seems that all their options are not only really expensive, but also takes a very long time. What is my parent’s best option? What did you guys do to help your parents move to Australia? Much love to all, PoMoSo
