APHRA/ANMAC

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am so confused right now and just wondering if anyone can shed some light for me!

I have been informed my first step in the visa process is to apply for registration with APHRA. I have paid and proceeded to build a profile and am now waiting to hear if I can go ahead an 'apply'. (I am a qualified Mental Health Nurse). I was informed that registration was needed before a skills assessment, and that skills assessment is the second step in the process. 

I have just been having a look online reading about ANMAC skills assessment, and it states on the website that as long as you have registration in the UK (Which I do), that you can begin a skills assessment.

Does anyone know if this is right?

Thank you in advance

Yes, you can do it either way.  If you have registration in Australia you can apply for a modified skills assessment.   There's nothing stopping you applying now to ANMAC for the full skills assessment.

Thank you.

 

I have since found out that I will need to visit Australia to obtain my pin so I have decided to ask APHRA if they can put my application on hold for now, as that is not an option for me in the next 3 months.

I have decided to go ahead with the ANMAC skills assessment, but my migration case worker seems quite clueless about the next steps (I'm applying for a refund and to cancel). Do you know what assessment I will need to do without APHRA? The visa I am applying for is the 190. There are 3 different exams to do and I am unsure if it's the academic or general one I need to book in for (Looking at Septemeber to do this as long as everything is ok with the current situation).

If you're talking about the ielts it will be the academic one

I’m not sure you do need the academic IELTS. In fact as you’re form the UK you might not need IELTS, if it’s not necessary for you point wise.

I’m a doctor and wasn’t initially going to do it as it isn’t necessary (GCSE English was sufficient) But did in the end to bolster my points up for a (hopefully) quicker process. And I only did the general IELTS.

Surely your Migration Agent should know what is needed?? I f not, I’d say you need to get a new one....
