WE GOT THE VISA AT LAST!

    Recommended Posts

    Guest nikki

    Got the call from our agent this morning after what felt like an agonising wait! We applied for a regional visa (victoria wanted air craft engineers) all our paper work hit oz on 20th june 05 after we had the medicals on 3rd june 05. We have waited since then and this morning we got the final yes! The longest delay we have had was waiting for victoria to stamp a piece of paper to say they wanted hubbys trade that should have taken 3 weeks but it took 4 months!!

    Moving to geelong hopefully feb/march 2006 with 2 children aged 11 and 8. Any top tips welcome thanks and FOR THOSE WAITING HANG IN THERE. YESTERDAY I WAS AS MISERABLE AS COULD BE TODAY IT ALL LOOKS VERY DIFFERENT.

        I have submitted EOI under Production and Plant engineer (233513) on 16th Jan.2018 with 65 Points.
        As I can check last invitation round was on 3rd Jan, 2018 and visa date of effect was 2nd Jan 2018.

        So my question is 

        How soon I will get invitation with 65 Points 

        Visa date of effect 2nd Jan,means till 2nd of Jan all the application got the invitation ?? 

        Along with I have also applied for NSW state sponsorship on 17th of Jan ,2018.

         Hello to all,
        My name is Ryan and i'm currently a third year Building services engineering student at Glasgow Caledonian University and next year i'm aiming to graduate with full honours degree in this discipline. 
        My question really is can anyone share their experiences of the move from the UK to Australia as a graduate engineer,  information i'm looking for:
        The Visa application:  I still have to do more research on this topic but if anyone can give any pointers or information i should be looking for. The Graduate opportunities:  what are the opportunities for graduates like in Australia in comparison to UK, my girlfriend is also a graduate in Public relations and Marketing so what would the opportunities be like for her as well Building services Engineering,  Can anyone from this Industry background share their employability experience from looking online seems to be a lot of opportunities for this profession  Any considerations I should make before a move to Australia? I Know this post is very vague but would like to hear from your experience before a move is on the cards, looking forward to hear from you all!!
        Many thanks
        Ryan.

        I don’t know much about these types of visas... So my Dad lives in Cairns, Queensland. He moved over on a marriage visa I think, his wife is Australian.
        I’m 24, my partner is 28 and my son is 1 and a half. Is there any way I could move my family and I over permanently as my dad is a permanent resident?

        Hi all.
        I am desperate for some help please.
        Visa 189 submitted 28.10.17
        Last week we finally had communication from a CO. Requesting evidence of employment for me and form 80 for my hustand and myself. Looking through the formal request when it details certifying documents it is very specific in saying that it must be a person who is equivalent to a justice of the peace e.g. notary of public or a migration agent; but all other evidence already submitted was certified by a teacher which was permitted.
        I have emailed the GSM twice but I haven't heard anything back. 
        Does anyone else please have any advice or guidance that you can offer.
        A notary public is not only more expensive but also a complicated process as she woild need to contact the source of all documents to certify them (8 years worth of employment in 4 different jobs). 
        We are 7 days into our 28 a day limit to submit so I am very anxious about trying to get this done ASAP.
        Many thanks

        Hi all,
        Its a bit of a long shot but I’m wondering if anyone on this site know anyone or them themselves have successfully applied for permanent skilled migration under Drainer, or who have worked as a Sewer Technician (unblocks, cctv, repair and maintenance work etc)
        My partner has worked as a sewer technician for 10+ years in the UK, we are currently in Australia on a 457. We are looking into PR via subclass 190 visa but it seems to apply as a ‘Drainer’ you need to have experience and qualifications in Gas and Plumbing also?
        My partner doesn’t have any gas experience but has some minor plumbing experience but no qualifications. He has qualifications in Jetting and CCTV work etc which we believe aren’t enough for the skill assessment.
        Any personal experiences from anyone who has been in a similar situation/ any other visa recommendations would be much appreciated!
