Hi I have been advised to apply, i am also a nurse, there are only 3 states who are accepting applications (well so i was told)!! Queensland is one of those states!!! Can i ask you a quick question or anyone else who can help.... i have got a positive skills assessment from the anmc, it is a long story but applied in 2008, had to halt application due to my husbands work etc and have just received positive skills assessment this week. I am confused as to whether i need to do IELTS, wasnt mentioned prior to skills assessment and migration expert says if they havent mentioned it you dont need to.....however i have been doing some fishing around and tonight read the Queensland blurb (which is where we want to go) and it says IELTS if applicable, so do i need one or not???!!!! I applied for skills assessment on my own, which was straightforward and i have contacted a couple of agents for costs etc on visa 176 application...it is such a minefield, don't know what to do for the best....look forward to any help/advice!!! Hope this makes sense!!!!

Sorry but you will have to do the ielts, i have done it and found that it was not too bad at all passed first time however there are a lot of people finding it difficult to pass. book one as soon as possible. i am doing the State sponsership myself and have done the skills assessment myself and am registered to work with nursing council. Dont know whether i will do the actual visa aplliication myself will have too see.

It would be category 3, but could move into category 2 when the Queensland SMP comes out and if nurse is on it.

I will copy you of how much is needed for so many people, that my agent has sent me. Off hand though I know for us a family of 4, 2 adults + 2 kids $38,000 is what is required for us.

Just about to finalise all the paperwork today + tomorrow.
