Assuming you have a minimum of 60 points then you should get an invite very soon and then you can lodge all your documents - skills assessment / ILETS etc.

Thanks for replying. I'm not sure if I've filled the EOI in right. I should have 70 points & it says I have 55. I'm English & fluent but think I've filled this bit in wrong as it asked for a qualification in the last year. Any ideas? I can go back in & change it. Thanks

You can submit as many EOI as you like, so just redo it. I'm sure you know but you can't claim any points for English without having passed one of the specific tests ielts/PTE etc. Being English is of no relevance for a points based visa.

What are you basing your points on?

Have you done a skills assessment -- which I think should be ANMAC if you are a nurse? ANMAC require  IELTS for their asssessment, I may be wrong but I would have though you could then use that on the EOI as proof of English, assuming your score was high enough.

Have you got a skills assessment? Have you completed an English test? You can't claim point for English just by being an English speaker, you need to take a test such as ilets.

As Nemesis asked, have you had your skills assessed? You can't claim points for your degree, or your work experience, if you have not gained a positive assessment. I believe there is a minimum English language requirement for nursing anyway (IELTS, PTE etc) so again, this will up your points.

 

It's important you understand the process though. At the time you submit your EOI you must be able to prove your claims for points. For instance if you claim to have superior English on the 1st July, you must have passed the relevant test before this date Not after.

 

Loads of info on the forum, especially for nurses, so good luck

Travelled to Australia Holiday and WHV. Quit job to retrain at Uni as a Podiatrist 25/09/2013.

On my journey to applying for 189 in 2016 (if they've not changed again by then lol)

If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it!

GCSE's. A levels and even your degree mean nothing. You must have a skills assessment to prove you have the occupation. As part of that, you may also need to take an English test at an advanced level. This is in addition to taking it for points.

Thanks again for your reply. I thought this was the easy bit. Don't know what to do next now. I haven't had a skills assessment no. Who do I contact for this? Also who to contact about these English tests. I'm starting at the beginning & need all the help I can get. Thanks everyone

This is the link to the skills assessment by ANMAC.  This is purely to get your skills assessed for the purpose of applying for a visa.  Registration is with AHPRA (and another process).

I recommend you discuss strategy and your options with a registered migration agent who is experienced in skilled visa applications.

I invite you to not be constrained by the location of possible migration agents.

Rather, you should be looking for an agent who has knowledge and experience - communications are so good these days you ought not be limited by where you are presently.

As an example, I'm replying to your post within 10 minutes, and I'm in Melbourne! 

Best regards.

Given agents mainly operate by phone and email, it doesn't really matter where they are. When I was doing my first visa, my agent was in Sydney and I was in Leicester. On my second I was in Sydney and my agent was in Perth.
