Also interesting is that it looks as if they are going to try out something like the NZ system where you put in an expression of interest model - not commencing until 2012 by the looks of it. I will put a separate post with the link

Same question...how do you get bloody $7072 ???

Even if I add up all the other costs like medicals,TRA,SS , translations of documents, Police checks and so on I am not getting $7072.

The 2nd instalment only applies to people who dont have the required knowledge about English.

Some pre-migration skills assessments would knock a huge hole in 7 grand.
