    Changing employer 187

    Greetings, My work commencement date with my current employer is 3rd April 2017. So as per my job contract I’ve completed the 2 year period with my current employer in 3rd April 2019. I had received the RSMS 187 visa grant on 2nd of November 2018. My Employer is finding it difficult to manage the work place. ( He is based on a another location which is 2 hours from my place of practice). So he wants another manager to take over the work over and wants me to relocate to the main head office. The head office is also based in a regional location. I’m not in favour of this relocation as it means I would have to take a pay cut and demotion from the existing position which was stated in my contract. The new place of work and the job position is different to the nominated position and location that I have obtained my RSMS 187 visa for. So if I want to change my job and work with another employer, would my Visa be affected ? What implications would I have to bear, if I change my job and my current employer reports this change to the immigration ? Feeling stressed about the whole situation. Any advise would be really helpful.
  2. Hi team, I have applied for RSMS visa on 15 march 2018. My nomination got approved on 2 sep 2019. I haven't heard anything from immigration regarding visa. RSMS visa rules changed on 18/3/2018 asking for 3 years of experience . I applied on 15/3/2018 , will it effect my visa requirements??? I received acknowledgement saying Application received on 15 march 2018 in my immi account. Thanks
  3. As you can see from the information above, Those hoping for an Employer Sponsored Grant, or Family Grant might have to expect to wait a while due to the number of applications that were in the pipeline at June 30, 2018, compared to the number of people they invited over the entirety of the 2017/2018 migration program for that category. Also helps to explain why State and Territory seem to be going slow - they had over 50% of the number of invites they give out in an entire year - still waiting at the start of the 2018/2019 migration year. I guess they need to clear those backlogs first, other than the odd lucky few that get quick grants from current year. I wish their report had more details of all the categories and numbers waiting in the pipeline, as well as numbers by state/territory, but did the best I could with what I found. Thought some others might find it interesting.

    187 rsms cook wa

    Hi guys It has been about 13 months since I lodged my visa as a cook. I’ve got requested for medical checkup 2 days ago, but my colleague who lodged visa before me has his nomination rejected 4 days ago. I thought my nomination will be rejected as well but I got requested for medical so I got really confused. Do you think my nomination is safe or not? When CO is assigned? Do you think the person who send me the “s56 request for more information” is my CO? When CO is assigned, can I tell my nomination is passed? I thought they only request further information when the nomination is cleared. My immiaccount says the status is still “recieved” . No “initial assessment” or “further assessment”. I’m really worried that my nomination will be rejected after paying $hundreds for medical check. Is it possible for my nomination to be clear when the other nomination is recently rejected at the same workplace? Give me some thoughts please! Cheers
  5. Okay so. - Restaurant manager, NSW. 187/RSMS 17th May 2016 - RCB Approved 14th July 16 - Submission documents for Visa waiting. ... Waiting ... Agent requested police checks to update file - (Not Immi.) 1 st Feb 2018 - Visa Rejected. reason: The employer had stopped operating under original ABN (Mentioned during time of application) Although business was still running - had changed the ABN in Jan. Immi had contacted place of work requesting for documents during Jan 18 requested for documents/reason for/inline with reason of changing ABN # Employer had not submitted docs within allocated time frame (14/21) days. Visa rejected - giving me 20 days to appeal / withdraw (notification to agent 01st Feb) My agent got back to me on the 5th / Feb (5 days in) Now I have been told that I have till the 20th to appeal - or it will be a permanent rejection. Cost of appeal 17xx odd dollars so around 1800/- ++ this is addition to previous "paperwork charges" 2 years 7 months .... and again I am waiting. with all this patience and calmness - I may ascend at some-point. Lets all wait it out ..
  6. hi is there anyone waiting for rsms 2017 in hairdressing rcs approved may 2017 nomination and visa application lodged with all the documents submitted !! doing updates every 3 to 6 months but no update yet since then ! does anyone know why its taking so long!! thanks
  7. Hi , I'm a Physiotherapist, currently working in regional QLD, on 457 visa. I've been on 457 visa for almost 2 years but I've recently changed my employer. My new employers are happy to sponsor me on RSMS visa( 187). I needed some information on RSMS visa, about Physiotherapy, as an occupation. I wont be eligible for Transition stream, as I haven't completed 2 years with my current employer. I have Limited Registration to work as a Physio from AHPRA. Limited registration from AHPRA was the basis for my 457 visa. Physiotherapy as an occupation is not mentioned in the legislative instrument. As stated on the DIBP webpage , skill requirement for direct stream “ if your occupation is not on the relevant legislative instrument, you must demonstrate that you have the qualifications listed in ANZSCO as necessary to perform the tasks of your occupation". Below is the brief description for Physiotherapist ANZSCO list : UNIT GROUP 2525 PHYSIOTHERAPISTS PHYSIOTHERAPISTS assess, treat and prevent disorders in human movement caused by injury or disease. Indicative Skill Level: In Australia and New Zealand: Registration or licensing is required. Occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1). I'm still undergoing physiotherapy assessment process through Australian Physiotherapy council, to be competent to work as a fully licensed Physiotherapist. Hence I wont be able to undergo skill assessment, if that's a requirement for Direct entry stream for physiotherapy as an occupation. I wanted to know if my limited registration( which currently allows me to work) be valid for RSMS : direct entry stream as it was valid for my 457 visa ? I have been asking around from some guidance but haven't received any yet. It would be it big help if someone could help me with this
  8. When regional Australia is calling out for migrants to fill jobs and boost dwindling populations, and most new arrivals stay in the cities, how can they be enticed to settle in the regions? In the last financial year, 101,255 migrants arrived in Australia and of these, only 6,637 settled in regional Australia, according to the Department of Home Affairs. Rockhampton-based Central Queensland University academic Ataus Samad has put forward a solution. Dr Samad said a holistic approach needed to start before migrants arrived, along with more support to get them directly to regional areas. "We found that the current process of resettling people from metropolitan cities to regional areas is difficult because once people settle in big cities, they are reluctant to move," he said. Often their children have started school, and even if migrants do not have jobs, they have their local community to support them. "If we place migrants straight away in metropolitan areas within their own comfort zone, people don't have the motivation to go out and talk to others," Dr Samad said. When migrants settled into regional areas, they were motivated out of necessity to talk to their neighbours or school teachers and to better integrate, he said. This is an issue the Federal Government has grappled with, and figures from the Department of Home Affairs show about 6 per cent of skilled migrants settle in regional areas. Data from its Continuous Survey of Australia's Migrants found that of those skilled migrants who settled in regional areas, 10 per cent moved to a major city between six and 18 months after settling. Meanwhile, agribusiness employers across regional Australia face the challenge of attracting skilled labour. Dr Samad recently presented research at a Developing Northern Australia conference outlining these challenges. He found that most of the labour shortage in regional areas was met by seasonal workers under different visa conditions, but this was not necessarily good for the local economy. "They earn here and spend somewhere else because they are seasonal workers or backpackers and their motivation is different," Dr Samad said. "They work here to earn their day-to-day living and make enough money to go around Australia and visit different places but not to invest in the local community." Employers take on temporary migrants or seasonal workers because they are unable to get permanent migrants or people from their local community to employ in their industries, he said. "The solution is to utilise the migrants we already have in Australia, whether they are refugees or skilled migrants, and get them to regional areas and get them to fill the skill gap," Dr Samad said. Dr Samad said he had seen this work. He was involved in a successful program piloted by the Federal Government seven years ago, where refugees from Myanmar were resettled into the small central Queensland town of Biloela, 200km west of Rockhampton. It was part of the Rural Employment Assistance Program (REAP), which relocated newly arrived migrants and refugees from Logan, south of Brisbane, where there were high levels of unemployment. Dr Samad said one of the program's successes was the fact a number of families from the same ethnic background moved to the town. He is working with CQ University and Charles Sturt University to identify the minimum of number of people needed to settle in a regional area to meet that critical mass. "There are successful resettlement programs in regional areas, not only in Queensland, but in NSW, Victoria and other places in Australia," Dr Samad said. Dr Samad said any resettlement also had to be led locally. "They know their area best, and my personal view is that we need to give the entire process of resettlement to local community and local government," he said. Dr Samad also noted there was a general perception that regional communities were not welcoming to migrants, and that some communities had not been exposed to migrants. "Although we have some shocking statistics that our regional areas are not supportive of migrants in their community, my experience living in a regional area is people are very welcoming and supportive, provided we consult them," he said. "We need people to bridge this fear and as soon as this fear is bridged, regional communities are really welcoming." On the other hand, many migrants had misconceptions of what life in regional Australia was like and many had the perception it was a wild area. Dr Samad said although there was a lot of encouragement from the Federal Government with visa categories for settlement in regional areas, there was a mismatch between the regional settlement of skilled migrants and the actual employment of skilled migrants. "We need to start the process from the very beginning — the moment we select which refugees we accept into Australia, where do we resettle them has to come under a holistic plan," he said.

    RSMS NOMINATION REFUSED

    Hi all, I am desperately searching for the information about my visa... I am located in Perth, WA. My migration agent lodged my RSMS nomination and visa application as a financial broker nec in Feb 2017. RCB was approved before RSMS application. However, nomination was refused in June 2017 and the migration agent advised me to apply for the AAT so we did. But she did not do anything about my visa application. I found out late that my visa application was refused and she did not lodge AAT for my visa application. She only lodged AAT for the refused nomination. Now, Perth has been removed from the locations for RSMS since March 2017 and my visa application was definitely refused (did not lodged for AAT). Just in case the nomination was approved after the hearing from AAT, can I still lodge my visa application? Hopefully someone can advise me on this matter... thank you very much in advance.
  10. One in 10 skilled migrants who move to regional Australia move to a city within 18 months, according to new data from the Department of Home Affairs. The data was provided to SBS News in response to questions raised in a recent Senate Estimates hearing. It was prompted by the Turnbull government announcing in May it was working on changes to regional sponsorship visas in a bid to force skilled migrants to stay. The department’s Continuous Survey of Australian Migrants (CSAM) revealed of the six per cent of skilled migrants who settled in a regional area, 10 per cent moved to a major city between six and 18 months later. Australia brought in 4,766 skilled workers to regional areas in 2016-17 but almost half of them settled in Perth. The government removed Perth as a “regional” destination in November. Darwin, Adelaide, Canberra and Hobart remain eligible for the regional visa. Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull said the government was “working on” options to improve retention of talented migrants in the regions. Australia has a number of visa programs designed to bring migrants to the bush, including the Skilled Regional (887) and the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (187). The government is trying to find ways to prevent the drain to the cities without impinging on the right to freedom of movement. In May, Nationals MP David Gillespie told SBS News many regional employers were left with a “sour taste” when migrants skipped town to pursue opportunities in the cities. Dr Gillespie would not comment on the government's legal options but raised the example of overseas doctors, who often came on visas that linked their Medicare billing to a regional centre for up to 10 years. Last week, the government released its final migration statistics for the last financial year. Permanent skilled and family migration fell by 20,000 places to its lowest level in a decade, prompting an angry response from employer groups. James Pearson, head of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the regions would suffer from the reduction. “This is a real crisis,” Mr Pearson told SBS News. “Politicians have failed to plan properly for the population growth in Sydney and Melbourne, and regional Australia is now paying the price because of this cutback in our skilled migration by stealth.”

    RSMS DE Processing time

    Hi guys. i just want to ask is this processing is normal or anyone who applied on nov 2017 having any updated news? 21 Nov 2017 - RCB and visa applied 13 Feb 2018 - RCB Approved 8 Mar 2018 - request health check 30 Apr 2018 - got letter saying “we are processing your nomination” and also requested more information.
  12. Does this caveat apply to RSMS? So scared because I lodged my application on 24/1/2018. TIA. The shop is in a Shopping Centre. So confused. Massage Therapist*** 411611 Excludes any of the following positions: are non full-time are not based in a therapeutic setting involve the provision of non-medical relaxation massage; or are in a retail setting. Caveat amended – clarification of wording only
  13. Hi guys, I have scored IELTS 8 and have an experience of three years working as Retail Manager. I have been recently sponsored by an employer for RSMS visa. I would be lodging the application by the end of this month. I heard somewhere that application is given more priority if the IELTS score is 8 and have related experience. So, my question is are my chances higher in securing a RSMS visa?
  14. I'm just wondering if it's possible that case officer can ask me to do health check before nomination is approved. My nomination is not approved yet, but case officer asked me to do health check. I'm very confused and worried about refusal of my visa because my sponsor has financial problem these days(low income). Please let me know if there is any same situation like me. Thanks!

    Visa 187

    I already got my nomination in July (My occupation is accountant and onshore). Afterwards I have lodged my visa application and waited for almost three months, still no feedback. Is it normal?
  18. Hi guys, I'm discussing a position with my employer. He has agreed to sponsor me and is initiating his paper work. However, in the offer letter he has included a Probation period of 3 months. I'm not sure if the nomination will likely be rejected if that is one of the contract conditions. Has anyone gone through the same problem and what was the outcome. Desperate for helppp !!!! Should I negotiate with him about taking that out of the contract ???

    RSMS timeline

    Hi everyone, So after 5 years in Australia on numerous different temp visa's, I have a permanent application lodged, now the waiting begins.... My current visa is nearly off so I will wait offshore, I really hope it won't be long! Could anyone share any times lines for RSMS or visa's lodged at Paramatta please? My time line is below x
  20. HI ALL, I M WAITING FOR MY 187 RSMS FROM LAST JUNE 2016 Does anyone else is in same boat aswell please share your timeline and immiaccount status. thanks
  21. Hi All, Was discussing these changes with a friend last night in regards to the upcoming changes, especially for those who have lodged a 187 DE application and/or nomination under an occupation which is not on the MLTSSL. I was just reading through the PAM3 this morning and from my understanding this guidance (I have attached) basically rules out a nomination approval if your application is not decided by March 2018 and does not appear on the MLTSSL. Keep in mind I'm referring to the Direct Entry stream. Just looking for some input from any MA's or people who have information. Questions: 1) Given the guidance that currently exists on the latest stack as of 7/9, has there been any further advice on the "additional regional occupations" that were promised under this reform? 2) Is lodging a nomination at this stage currently advisable for employers who seek to nominate highly-skilled non-MLTSSL positions (ANZSCO 1)? Here is the guidance I refer to, of which the last paragraph is most relevant: 10.3.3 Approvable occupations specified in the latest legislative instrument For RSMS any occupation with a skill level within ANZSCO skill levels 1 to 3 may be nominated. Regulation 5.19(4)(h)(i)(A) (ENS Direct Entry stream) and Regulation 5.19(4)(h)(ii)(D) (RSMS Direct Entry stream) provide that the delegate must be satisfied that the nominated occupation and its corresponding 6-digit code correspond to an occupation and its corresponding 6-digit code specified in a legislative instrument. In practice, this means that: when assessing nominations under Regulation 5.19(4)(h)(i)(A) delegates must confirm that the nominated occupation is included on the Medium and Long term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) or the Short term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL), which lists occupations that can be approved in relation to permanent employer sponsored nominations under the ENS Direct Entry stream; when assessing nominations under Regulation 5.19(4)(h)(ii)(D) delegates must confirm that the nominated occupation is included in the legislative instrument in relation to permanent employer sponsored nominations under the RSMS Direct Entry stream. delegates must be satisfied that the tasks of the nominated position effectively align with the tasks for that occupation as outlined in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). Important: As of 19 April 2017, the legislative instrument referred to above contains two schedules, the MLTSSL, which replaced the former Skilled Occupation List (SOL), and the STSOL which replaced the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL). Occupations listed in Schedule 1 (MLTSSL) and Schedule 2 (STSOL) to the instrument are eligible for the PESE ENS Direct Entry stream. A full list of these occupations is available on the Department’s website. Some occupations on the list are restricted to certain situations via a caveat - refer to legislative instrument The list can change with occupations being removed or added. If the legislative instrument has changed since the application was made, officers should confirm that the nominated occupation is specified in the current legislative instrument. If the nominated occupation is not listed on the current legislative instrument at the time of making the decision, the nomination cannot be approved. The STSOL and MLTSSL will be updated every six months based on advice from the Department of Employment. Listed caveats will provide additional requirements or exclusions for a number of listed occupations. Since Regulation 5.19 are time of decision requirements, this can mean that an occupation on the STSOL and MLTSSL at the time of lodgement is either no longer on these lists or is further constrained by caveats at time of decision and therefore cannot be approved. In these instances applicants will be afforded the opportunity to withdraw the nomination and associated visa application. The improved agility of the STSOL and MLTSSL to respond to ‘on the ground’ labour market conditions will strengthen the skilled migration programme to react to real-time skill shortages. The STSOL and MLTSSL continues to cover a range of managerial, professional, technical and trade occupations at ANZSCO skill levels 1, 2 and 3.

    RSMS 187 Issues with Employer

    Good afternoon dear friends I am having a bit of dilemma and not quite sure how to proceed so I would like to listen some of personal experiences as well as some advice regarding reporting employer to Fair Work and consequences for my situation. A bit of background: I am employed as Motel Manager and had my visa sponsored by the company as RSMS 187 located in the NSW South Coast, it has been granted on the March 7th 2017 while away on my annual leave. I have been working here since October 15th 2015 acting accordingly to the agreed terms to increase revenue, manage and maintain the motel and so on. Worked most weekends and pretty much all holidays and festive periods since that date without receive any penalty rates on the grounds of having only 4 days off per month. So far, so good I quietly delivered my side of the commitment, however, from January 19th 2017 I have not been paid on date sometimes up to 7 weeks delayed including my annual leave which was not only paid vary late and without the load of 17.5%. On top of that the owner is constantly harassing (threatening to report to Immigration, accusing me of "testing his intuition', supposedly received a number of guests complaints about myself and the rooms presentation, that he would give a chance to sign my resignation but not fire me even though he verbally told me that I was fired or that I am no longer employed, and so on) and accusing of wrong doing yet without present any details or proof, with even more frequency these days as my wife is now pregnant and cannot be on site due to a risky pregnancy, for that matter living in Sydney to attend appointments and monitoring her pregnancy. Note that my wife has never been on the formal agreement but usually regional motels hire couples, never received a dime for her work. After being ripped of from the promised commission, increasing revenue by 35% from previous 4 years along side other KPIs this constant harassing is taking a heavy toll on my nerves and after speak to managers that look after businesses nearby I found that he has a fame for pushing people to the edge till they just leave, as a matter of fact, prior to me there was 11 managers in 5 years, being myself the only one staying more than 12 months. My questions are: How to proceed with reporting conditions to Fair Work? What sort of formal notice shall I provide to the employer? Consequences to my current visa situation and future job applications? Has anyone experienced any similar situation? Thank you all in advance Daniel
  25. I've searched high and low on the Immi site and I think I've found my answers, I just can't find specifically whether these things conflict with each other! Can anyone help. My situation by August will be this: I will have been in Australia for 4 years working with the same employer. I have been on 187 for 14 months I will be having a baby in August I want to apply for Citizenship in September Then potentially leave my job - to become freelance and work part time for them and some other companies at my own pace Obviously there's the 187 rules around me needing to be there for 24 months usually, is maternity allowed to be taken in this time? Then are you allowed to apply for citizenship whilst still in your 2 years (I'll have filled the Citizenship criteria of being here 4 years and being PR for 12 months) - i.e does the citizenship rules override the 187, or does 187 affect your ability to apply for citizenship? Can't find this information anywhere!!
