Hi everyone, I'm new here. I hope its ok to start up a new thread like this.... I contact a MARA agent to help with the confusing and ever changing visa situation. His help was invaluable. Unfortunately my occupation (student Counsellor) is now only on the STSL but it is on the QLD list of occupations shortages. I asked about doing an EOI for QLD (with a view to a 190 visa) and this was his reply: While you can complete an EOI and in theory be selected from SkillSelect by an employer interested in your skill set, in reality this is government rhetoric and there is no reliable evidence to show that this process works. I wondered what people thought and whether anyone on here has or knows someone who has been successful via EOI and skillset? Instead I'm going out to volunteer in a community centre (ie proper volunteer position) on a tourist visa and see if I can find a sponsor. If anyone also has any advice on getting sponsorship whilst in Australia I'm all ears! Many thanks Kat
Hi, I am based out of India. I have a B.Tech. in Computer Science and 3 year work experience in IT industry in India itself. 1. I want to apply for PR. I talked to a consultant and she said the minimum work experience required for Asians to apply is 4 years. Is that true? I don't see it mentioned on the website though. 2. I want to do a culinary course from Australia. I was thinking of going on a student visa and then apply for PR (skillset: software engineer) along as the course goes on. The consultant (based out of India, runs a office to help people with visas for australia) said that if I am doing an unrelated course and apply for PR in a different skillset it would affect my application. Is it true? Sounds logical to me. Please let me know if anyone has some insights on these two queries of mine. Thanks You, Priyanka
