  1. The Australian government will create a new visa to compete with other countries for “high-tech skills and talent”, with companies allowed to sponsor migrants for jobs paid more than $180,000. There will also be a new visa for start-up companies seeking talent in STEM fields like biomedicine and agricultural technology. Both visas will require the migrant to have three years of relevant experience, while the sponsor companies will need to demonstrate they tried to hire Australians first. “The Government recognises there is fierce competition globally for high-tech skills and talent, and that attracting these people helps to transfer skills to Australian workers and grow Australian-based businesses,” a Turnbull government media release reads. There will not be a cap on the overall number of visas, but individual companies will have a limit on how many migrants they can employ. Businesses will be able to take up to 20 skilled migrants under the new stream per year, while start-ups will be able to take up to five. The visas for jobs paid more than $180,000 will only be available to businesses with a turnover of more than $4 million. The start-up visas will be available to any that is authorised by an industry body, yet to be chosen by the government. The migrants will have the option of a "transitional pathway" to permanent residence after three years in the country. The details of the scheme will be ironed out over the next few months before a 12-month pilot begins on July 1. The need for visa changes to attract high-value employees from overseas has been the “number one priority” in the emerging startup sector, according to an industry group. StartupAUS chief executive Alex McCauley said the government’s changes to 457 temporary work visas last year, which restricted the list of occupations and cut off the path to permanent residency for many jobs, had made it harder for start-ups to compete. “The single biggest challenge for Australian start-ups is getting access to the best talent in the world,” “It got more difficult when the 457 visa announcements were made last year and start-ups in this country are really crying out for a way to get access to talent.” “Everybody’s looking to hire product managers, software engineers, digital growth specialists, data scientists.”

  3. Perth became regional a few weeks ago, does anyone know if and when Anaesthetic Techs (ODP) can change from a 457 visa to a permanent visa whilst staying in Perth and not have to move to the country like before? There is no information on the immigration web site at all about Perth becoming regional??? Any info would be great. Thanks

    tech interview

    Hi all I have my tech interview via Skype with Victoria uni on Thursday 16th June 2011. It is for a Carpenter. Has any one had an interview? Any advice? Many thanks :err:
  5. Hi, im just wondering if there are any Radiographers on here that have made the move, in the process of visa application or thinking about the move over. Im just wanting some advice on how to go about getting the 175 visa? Any advice is welcomed thanks claire
  6. Hi Guys, I am facing very hard time with my visa application (skill : .NET technologies Specialist (ASCO 2231-79)), i have applied for visa on 23 July 2009, got mail from case officer on 8 APr 2011: For you application to be assessed the skills assessment provided needs to be for an occupation listed on the current Skilled Occupation Lists (SOL). The occupation on the skills assessment you provided with your application (NET’ technologies Specialist) is not on the current SOL. If you use the same documents provided at the time the original skills assessment was sought, the ACS will give you the opportunity to obtain another skills assessment. If you wish to obtain a skills assessment for the occupation nominated on your application or an occupation listed on the current SOL you will need to contact the ACS. To continue with the assessment of your application you need to provide a written explanation as to the current skills assessment on file not being for your nominated occupation and a skills assessment for an occupation list on the SOL. I have replied to this email and asked him is it ok to get the new skill assessment for "Developer Programmer (ANZSCO Code: 261312)". On this he replied that: The occupation you are seeking a new skills assessment for(Developer Programmer – ANZSCO Code: 261312) is on the current SOL and the assessment can continue once that skills assessment is received (providng the new assessment is based on the same evidence provided for the original skills assessment). However, please note that the occupation is not on the MODL (Occupation in Demand) so MODL points cannot be claimed. On your application you have claimed the 15 MODL points. As my prelimnary assessment is that you will not reach the 120 points required, I would suggest you seek sponsorship (state or family) to have the application assessed as a VE 176 which requires 100 points. Please forward the skills assessment to me when you receive it and if you obtain sponsorship send me the details and I will advise you of the requirements for the sponsorship you have obtained. This is really insane, after two years of waiting they are now saying that i am not eligible. They should process my application according to the old rules. Please advice me what should i do, should i ask my case officer that why my application is not processed under old rules?? thanks

  13. I currently hold a +ve assessment from ACS as 2231-79 .NET Tech Specialist. I'm just wondering what my fellow .NET guys think about where what ANZCO code we should fall into. I'm going to apply for the free re-assessment with ACS and I reckon the closest match is 261312 Developer Programmer. This also happens to be the safest as it is included in Schedule 3, Schedule 4, and also the ENSOL lists. See my workings below. SCHEDULE 3 (GSM) 261312 Developer Programmer = 2231-17 Applications and Analyst Programmer SCHEDULE 4 (SMP's) 261399 Software and Applications Programmers nec = 2231-79 Computing Professional nec 261312 Developer Programmer = 2231-17 Applications and Analyst Programmer ENSOL 261399 Software and Applications Programmers nec = 2231-79 Computing Professional nec 261312 Developer Programmer = 2231-17 Applications and Analyst Programmer 261312 Developer Programmer = 2231-19 Systems Programmer Altough according DIAC's correlations 261312 Developer Programmer matches 2231-17 Applications and Analyst Programmer, ABS classifies Developer Programmer's specialisations as: Communications Programmer (Systems) Database Developer Database Programmer (Systems) Network Programmer Software Developer Software Programmer I don't know about you .NET guys but on my assessment letter ACS had my experience down as 'Software Developer'. So I'm going for 261312 Developer Programmer, would like to know the thoughts of other +ve .NET guys. Thanks a lot.

    ODP / Anaesthetic Tech

    Hi All, I am just in the early stages of applying for registration and trying to relocate to Aus. It seems nurses have an extremely easy method of gaining a permanent visa almost automatically, cutting out some of the red tape. Does anyone know where we ODP’s/Anaesthetic Techs/APO’s stand with regards to gaining visas. Once again we don't seem to be on the same level even after doing the same standard of Diploma and are not on the Skills Shortage list. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Tim.
