  2. 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.
  3. Hi, My Wife qualifies as a Registered Nurse next March 2013, we want to emigrate to Oz but we are stuck on a couple of things??? So any help or advice from anyone in a similar position would be great. Does being a newly qualified Nurse in U.K. effect the 'Work Experience' aspect of the application or will the 'Placements' on the Nursing Diploma count as 'Experience'??? We are going to go the EXPO in Leeds at the end of this May. Anyone any experience of these??? Can we apply for a Visa before she finishes her Diploma or do we have to wait till she is qualified? How long is the Visa process for Nurses at the moment i have raed various things about Nurses being fast-tracked? Thanks in advance for your help... :biggrin: Paul
  4. Hi there My fiancé and I are in the throws of trying our best to get to OZ.after waisting so much of our time getting wrong info from visa first we think we are on the right track. My fiancé is waiting for his aqf level three plastering papers in the post.hw sat his IELTS test at the weekend so 2weeks waiting for that. We onld found out the other night that hus aqf level 3 now also has to be asseses by the TRA who also told us they have a 3month back log. We were speaking to a lady in immigration the other night who told us the quickest way to get visa is get holiday visa arrive in Perth find a job that offers sponsorship and that the visa would be grantedin a week!! Has anyone else come across this info???? Also dose anyone know if the medical is done by your own gp or by a dr they assign you to? And do all visas require a medical?? We are going for the 176 ss in WA. Trying to find the correct info is so hard I'd appreciate any help please.....Ger
