  1. Hello Sorry for asking but am confused! long week!!! I put in on 25th of January for my expression of interest for a 189 skilled independent visa. I had 65 points - I completed Pearsons Academic and got 90/90 in all 4 sections (20 points) then positive skills assessment for a surgical nurse (ANZSCO 254424) with a degree (15 points) then age 39 until mid july (25 points) and more than 3 but less than 5 years experience in the UK as a nurse (5 points) Having looked and considering my options - I now want to apply for a 190 NSW State sponsorship visa - my skill is on the priority skilled occupation list. So I would have 65 points plus 5 points for state nomination? totaling 70 points?? I wondered do I click on 190 on the immigration page then submit expression of interest on the skill select page there? eg apply for EOI on the 190 immi page? Or do I click on my original Expression of interest (for a 189) and change it to NSW state sponsored? Can I keep both open until I get an invite then cancel the one not invited for sooner? Many thanks - sorry long shift and not getting my head around it!!! Kind regards Saffy x

    Partner Visa points

    Hi I got skilled assess in accounting and my wife skilled assess in hairdressing, my skill is in MLTSSL and my wife skill is in STSOL. can we share partner points ?? while we are applying for 190 or 489 strem ? we both have 6 each ielts, both 45 less, and already assess our qualifications. Thanks
  4. After some advise please Is there any way somebody working in any of the following, would be able to get a skill visa into Australia - health & welfare service manager, mental health, support worker Thank you in advance guys
  5. Dear All, My circumstances are the following: I updated my EOI yesterday with the scores of a new PTE Academic test that I took the day before, and I increased my EOI score from 55 to 65 points (due to superior English). Hence, I became eligible for a 189 invitation under the ANZSCO code 261312 (Developer Programmer). But last week, on the 6th of April (Monday), I received a invitation to apply to a 190 nomination from NSW. And now I have a difficult decision to make: The next invitation round is April 24th, and I believe that I have great chances of getting a 189 invitation since according to the results of the previous round (from April 10th), the minimum scores that received invitations for my profession were of 60 points (I have 65 now) with a date of effect of March 12th (mine is April 14th now). However, I have a deadline of April 21st, which is three days before the next invitation round, to submit my 190 application to NSW. But if I do so, I am afraid they could issue a 190 invitation on SkillSelect before the system has the chance to run the next allocation process for the 189. I know NSW's official processing time is 12 weeks, but I also know that they began a new program in January and are starting with fewer invitations in the first months of this new program. Hence, I am afraid they could process my application too soon. Nonetheless, I do not know for sure whether receiving a 190 invitation from them would prevent the system from issuing a 189 invitation right after, as long as I qualify. In addition, I can see on the Occupation Ceilings page that there are only 268 invitations left for my profession; therefore, I am also afraid to end up with nothing if I do not submit my 190 application by April 21st and SkillSelect does not send me a 189 invitation due to the occupation ceiling, even though it seems unlikely. This is why I would like to know if anyone faced a similar situation, and ever received a 189 invitation after a 190 invitation.
  6. Hi everyone, I came across this site last week & so far have found a huge amount of information through it. We are in the beginning stages of our process - having decided this month to stop talking about it, & just get on with making the move. I'm Amy (28), my partner Tom (30), who's a mechanic with 10 years experience & our 2 boys Oliver who's 4 & Harry, who's 2. I've been researching allsorts, from different suburbs & rents, cost of living & I've done this weeks online shop with Coles to get an idea of the cost of groceries etc, i've done car insurance quotes based on our current vehicle which we are considering importing, fuel costs, looked at Broadband/Phone subscriptions & mobile phone contracts, gas/electric costs & so on. So all in all for the general everyday things I think I've looked into everything (unless there's anything someone thinks I have overlooked). We'd be hoping to either get a skilled independent, but have been reading up on sponsored visas. There's also the new SkillSelect to consider - what if we get through all the skills assessments etc, i presume there's then a chance that we could sit in the system for years with no invitation to lodge our visa? Ideally we're looking at the Brisbane/Gold Coast area, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. So, does anyone have an idea of what Tom can look to earn as an experienced mechanic? Would $60,000 be a reasonable amount to expect? & what is the demand in the Bris/GC area? I would be staying at home looking after the children initially, but would then look at getting a job once the boys are both at school - obviously this depends on how long the process takes, if they're both in school when we made the move I'd be looking at getting a job straight away. My mind is completely blown at the moment with all the information, but I am so excited to get the process moving forward. Sorry for the long post - just trying to get a few things straight in our heads so we know whether it's actually a viable option. Thanks, Amy & Tom
  7. Hi All, My 1st post here so please be kind! I am a newly qualified Management Accountant (CIMA) and looking to migrate to Australia with my toddler and husband. As the main visa applicant I'm hoping I can avoid the additional cost of a migration consultant and was hoping you can help. The process I was going to follow is... 1)Apply to CPA to get membership through their agreement with CIMA - I'm under the understanding that I should not need to complete an additional exam to prove my knowledge? 2)Complete an English language assessment in order to gain the extra points for SkillSelect Application: Proficient / Superior English - 20/10 pts Other points are Age 31 - 30pts Qualification - 15pts Work Experience 5-7yrs - 10pts Total - 65 / 75 pts 3) complete medical assessment 4) Submit Skill Select Application Wait for ITA for visa. Does this sound like the correct order and have I missed anything? Is there any other way I can prove superior / proficient English skills and a native English speaker? Any other advice / guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Becky

    points for 189 visa

    Hi guys, Is DIBP accepting a paid full time (37.5hrs/week) research assistant experience in a university as a valid experience to claim points? I have the following experiences - 1yr + 8 months Junior Electrical Engineer in a Telecom operator - 1 year research assistant at university - 4 months paid full time trainee at a multinational telecom vendor My masters is being assessed by Engineers Australia. Also the first two experiences are before my masters, I have a related engineering before my masters. Please advise me, if these experiences could give me 5 points? Thanks in advance.

    Need Help - Skill Category

    Hi All, I am new to this forum. I am planning to go for skill assessment from ACS. I have a B.E. degree with major in Electronics and communication. However, I have been working for 6.5 years as a SCM (software configuration management/Change management + Build and release management) since I graduated. I have also experience in various automation activities we do as part of our job and have gained some expertise in UNIX shell and perl scripting. I am not too sure which category would my skills fall in. Will I be falling under 'Developer Programmer' or 'System Administrator' and any other category?? I would really be thankful if someone can help me recognize the category with which I should go with skill assessment. Regards, Rohit
  10. Hi, I have been looking at the points test on the skill select website. To be able to apply for independent skilled visa you need 60 points and for state sponsorship 55 as you will be given 5 for applying for it if selected bringing you to 60 points. I have just less than 3 years since I was qualified back in the uk as an electrician. But almost 9 years overall experience working in the electrical industry as apprentic, electricians mate and electrician. Plus been in australia for 2 years working as a TA and A grade electrician I won't be getting any points for my experience back at home, but as long as I can make it up to 60 points from the other questions will I qualify for the visas ? Any help would be appreciated Thamks
  11. I thought some readers of the forum would be interested in the following extract from newly published DIAC policy on the SkillSelect model: To ensure that every EoI has a unique ranking, equally scoring EoIs will be separated by the date and time at which the intending migrant met all eligibility factors and points test score for a given subclass. The time of effect will be updated each time the intending migrant amends their EoI resulting in a change to their points test score or eligibility for a subclass. If an intending migrant changes their information, but it does not change their points score or eligibility, this will not alter their date of effect for the purposes of ranking against a particular subclass of visa. The ranking of an EoI will also change if SkillSelect determines that the intending migrant is no longer eligible for a particular visa or claims against the points test have changed resulting in a higher or lower points test score - for example, if the intending migrant: • has completed an EoI for a subclass 189 visa and • has a birthday and turns 50 (exceeding the maximum age permitted) they are no longer eligible to complete an EoI for a Subclass 189 visa. Ranking is an objective and automatic process, conducted by SkillSelect daily in order to facilitate the issue of an invitation with no intervention by departmental staff. The ranking is based on the information provided by the intending migrant. An example of how the points score of an EoI for a given subclass would change due to an intending migrant updating their details is as follows: An intending migrant submitted a complete EoI for a subclass 189 Skilled - Independent visa on 1 August 2012. They claimed a points score of 55, which included 10 points for their trade qualification. They later completed a bachelor degree, and on 10 September 2012 at 0911 hours and 13 seconds AEST Australian Capital Territory, updated their EoI to claim an additional 5 points for this qualification. Hence for the purposes of ranking the EoI, the date of effect is 10 September 2012 at 0911 hours 13 seconds with a points score of 60 points. This change does not effect the date of submission of their EoI, which is still valid for 2 years from the original lodgment date of 1 August 2012, when they submitted their EoI for the first time. Periodically invitations will be issued to the top ranking EoIs for intending migrants seeking to apply for an independent or family sponsored skilled visa. Best regards.
  12. Hi All, I have applied Skill Select - 189 subclass migration visa from Singapore. I have been asked to go for Medicals by case officer. I called medical panels in Singapore and gave my TRN number them to verify and book the appointment. Unfortunately, none of the panel is able to find my TRN in their system. What should I do now? (I have requested case office to provide HAP-ID 5 days back, but I have not received any response from her so far.). Please guide me. I am also not able to select medical Panel from "Arranging Health....", I am getting below error -> Warning Your request can not be processed this time. Please try again later, I am trying on this link since last 6 days but it's behaving the same... Really it's frustrating.. (EOI- 03/09/2012, CO assigned - 3/11/2012.)
  13. having meandered through the wealth of information on here, and pored over DIAC and skill select, looked at possible nominated skills and assessment bodies, I have got myself hopelessly lost... My partner and I wish we had made the move years ago, as we now find ourselves at aged 46 and 47, with two children, wondering if we have missed the boat. My partner has an Aunt and cousins in Oz, but unfortunately they are in Wollongong, so that looks like a non starter. Partner was across last month on a visit to them, and he was 'offered a job', the guy said he would do the paperwork next day and he would start the following week, work for two years in the outback then qualify for citizenship, meaning we could go to Oz that way. I had my doubts, as it would have meant a life changing decision within hours, so said no. He came home with tail between his legs... My partner has a wealth of work experience, including HM Armed Force, but no formal qualifications. I have formal management qualifications, but looking at the skills assessment and the job titles available, the three job categories that I could fall under are assessed by three different assessing bodies. Looking at the new SOL, two of them are still there, but waiting on the ENSOL list may throw up the third. Should I just aim at getting one assessment with AIM? Talking through the possible move, our dream would be to be situated close to our relatives, but would really consider anywhere in Australia short term. Not sure though, that it is all just a dream that should really be put to bed once and for all, or whether this is worth pursuing. A question I have about visas - if we were fortunate enough to be successful in finding the right route - if it all hinged on, say, regional sponsorship on my abilities, would I have a set period in Oz to prove that I have managed to get a job, or would my partner be able to get a job without me having one? Any help, suggestions would be great.
  14. Dear all, I would really appreciate any advice on this: I have received WA SS 2 days ago. It's time to apply now but I have some doubts what is the better option. If I apply for 176 visa, we'll get it in 1-2 months, almost no risks but we'll stick to the WA state. I like Perth, but somehow planned to get Master degree in Sydney first and maybe then settle in a smaller town. If I apply for visa 175, I won't have to stay in any state, we'll be independent in all matters and can study in Sydey. However, what bothers me the most is what happens with 1st July on our doorstep? I am an accountant and the profession is on the risk-list and maybe excluded on 1st of July from SOL. As soon as I have launched the visa before 01/07 they will have no right not to consider the application but they may downgrade the visa to Priority Group 5 and we will wait for ages. Is my understanding correct? Please help. Can't find anything saying what happens to those who have applied before new rules in place.
