Losing hope but still hopeful - advices needed

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Long story short - I completed bachelor of business (Oct 2018) and graduate diploma (early childhood teacher, graduated in July 2019) in Melbourne. I am on my TR 485 that expires in Oct 2020. I have 70 pts now (Married) and waiting for skills assessment result as an early childhood teacher (applied since mid-sept 2019). I am working as an Early Childhood teacher since Sept 2018.

What is my best option for PR? I have been to many consultants and paid a lot of consultation fees with different agents recommending different routes. I'm honestly stressed out with the process as the points seem to go higher everyday! I just wished someone can guide me through this long and tiring process...


After much deliberation and elimination I'm thinking of the following:

1. Get a job offer as an early childhood teacher in regional Vic and try for 491. 
2. Study a course in TAS or go for Masters to either get a 491 or 190 in TAS.

Are these two options feasible? Which one has a higher chance? I am just worried my points are too low for 491 VIC.


Thank you for your assistance in advance. Hopefully, we can solve each other issues as we are all on this together...thanks once again.
 
p.s. I felt this was the best forum to post in, sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum,

There are no guarantees in this business and advice about possible strategies will vary depending on the particulars provided, the legislation and policy in force at the time and the depth of analysis undertaken.

May I suggest that you consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for a full assessment?

If you’re shopping around agents and none of them are able to offer you a pathway to migration, maybe it’s time to accept there isn’t one.

Sorry, I was on my phone earlier.  

To elaborate on my answer:  you're discovering what we always warn people about.  Trying to get permanent residency by studying in Australia is always a gamble.  There just isn't enough time after completing your studies to get the experience and get a job offer, so you're always living in the edge.  It's usually much better to get your qualifications and experience in your home country and then apply for PR direct.

However, it's too late for you now.  What does your husband do?

My wife actually. She does farming - fruit picking.

 

I have 10 months of my TR 485 left. I believe I have time to get a job offer in regional VIC (I'm staying in VIC now). However, just want to gauge my chances for 491, as there isn't any hint of min. invitation pts or specific criteria they are looking for (min. points, which part of regional VIC needs my skills the most etc.).

Thank you. But not looking for more agents at this moment. Maybe in the future.

The 491 is very new and information about invites and points for various States is currently limited.
