Skilled Migrant

Recommended Posts

Guest sabink

Hi

 

We want to emigrate to Aus from the UK, and are both 25. We are due to marry in 2006. I have a 1st class honours degree in IT and my partner has a masters in Human Resources. We are wondering whether to employ a migration agent to help us along.

 

Would appreciate advice on whether you think we stand a good chance or not

Very good chance,

 

I wouldn't go down the route of using an agent unless you have complications, try the points test online for skilled migration, the who process should be a breeze! 8)

are you told quite quickly whether you are accepted or not, i know the process takes around 15months upwards - but it would be quite disheartening to get 15 months down the track and then be rejected

Hiya Sabink, Dont worry you can do it all yourself. Just go to the DIMIA website and its all there, everything, all the forms to print off , ie, the skill assessment form, the main visa application form (47SK) form 80, form 47A, ect ect. Agents are not worth it really as you have to get all the info anyway. Look on the migrating section of the DIMIA website and go from there. Let me know how you get on.

 

See ya

thats good then, ill check out this

 

with my qualification, and my partners get 135 point on the points test - without filling in the xperience part

 

thats promising

 

the only bad thing now is I currently have high blood pressure, and am contracting - so my employer (HAYS) cannot give me a job based reference for my skills assessment. They can only say how long Ive worked under Hays

Hiya,

 

Thats ok all you need is a ref from employers to say when you started and your job description as detailed as poss. get as many ref as you can dating back to when you left school ( how crap i know) dont worry about your partner unless you need to, to get the points. and photocopy everything about 5 times before you cetify them, ill tell you more about that nearer the time!!

 

See ya
