    hi @markjohn if you're already a nurse, why not go for 189 or 190? hi @datuzero fgs is right, any occupation will do. the condition is to get a full time job and be on it for a year or cumulative full time job hours in a year.

    still in the process of satisfying the one year full time job. sa april ko pa ma-fu-fullfil. good thing i'm on a full-time on going basis (but doesn't mean they can't make me redundant. lol). keeping my fingers crossed. good luck sa ating lahat!:)

    @markjohn if you study for a year here, and your program is a 'conversion' program, you may be able to register as a nurse after your studies. that's your ticket to a more permanent visa.

    @markjohn you will have by then the qualification (which should be the registered bridging program/course), so you are eligible for registration. like when you graduate sa pinas ng bs nursing, then you are able to take the licensure exam to be registered.

    @ajet02 Hi ajet! Congratulations! Excited for you and for us all! Yey! Would probably take 3 months cos at the moment, they've allocated applications from 15 Oct 2015. So, it kinda give us a 3 to 4 months processing period. I hope it gets faster soon!:)

    Sa mga mag-aapply na po ng 887 saan po kayo nakakuha ng full time job? I also have 489 visa and I am finding it hard to get a full time job being in a regional area.

    @filsgoz Hi. Statistician po ako. Power industry work ko sa atin. I stayed in Mackay for 7 months and was not able to find a full time job puro part time job lang po na malayo sa work ko sa atin. I went back to Ph and seriously thinking now if I still want to go back to Aus.

    Mackay is really very regional. My partner and I were in Tasmania before but now here in Geelong. It's just an hour away from Melbourne and ABS (Australia Bureau of Statistics) just moved here. I think it's because Mackay is soooo regional that's why you felt like not coming back. Try Geelong. You might need to re-skill yourself or reinvent yourself to find a niche while you wait for the PR. Don't give up too easily @gracee :)
