  • @Blackmamba if you are planning to study accounting here then its going to be same. It is very hard for accountants and auditors to get an invite unless the person has 80 points dahil sa sobrang dami ng nsa queue.

  • @chococrinkle same medicals for 189/190/489. Temporary visas for medical purposes yung mga student visa, 457, etc.
  • @mxv588t yes, if nai-lodge mo ung SS application before dec. 6 makakahabol ka. anyway, antay ka na lng next year around july kpg ni-refresh na nila ung quota per occupation.
  • @mxv588t hi, facilities manager is now categorised as "special conditions" as per South Australia state migration. You have to meet any of the 4 special conditions for your application to be processed.
  • @maiSG03 congrats!
  • @aspirant0508 are you studying nursing in australia? What do you mean MPA? If you are planning to study accounting here in Australia I would suggest not to go that path kc sobrang dami ng applicants sa profession na yan and ang taas ng points so mos…
  • @cutsiechick21 hey, did you manage to sort our your issue w/eoi?
  • @jomar011888 yep, based sa expected eoi invites, 5 lang ung naka-allocate for 489.
  • @jomar011888 not to let your hopes down but I have checked dibp website specifically skillselect selection and found this...
  • @jomar011888 hopefully you will get an invite straight away.
  • @almaabad30 Hi, read and do your research about Hobart and Tasmania. ok din na may idea ka. What is the anzsco code for retail buyer? Is that visa 489? Tasmania has published the list of skills they are able to sponsor for someone living overseas w…
  • @AIR Hi, I have had this conversation in a different thread but can't remember where exactly. Actually, it is subject to interpretation. It can be that for example, you are the main applicant for your 489 and your partner is the dependent, then fo…
  • @eking bkt mo gusto ma-expire ung ITA mo sa SA? You can re-apply with SA but for the 2nd time, they MAY not believe that you have genuine intention to live in SA coz you have let the first ITA to expire.
  • @eking yes, your baby will be your dependent. if by the time you have the baby and you are still on 489, the baby will have 489 too. If you have a baby by the time that you and your partner are PRs, then the baby will be an OZ citizen automatically.
  • @mcg143 hi, it depends. I think the technique is to study a course that has the high potential of not being removed from skills list by the time you finished studying if you want to get a PR. Another consideration would be getting a course that will…
  • @malt yep you can email or call them to follow up or ask questions. wag kayo mahiya or matakot magfollow up sa kanila kc di nmn nila kayo kilala minsan nakakatulong din
  • @cutsiechick21 congrats! looking at your timeline, that's quick!
  • @Celeana thanks sa info. yes, yun din ang pagkakaalam nmn na ung practicum sa pinas ay inooffer lang sa bachelors. yep, most likely dito na lng mag-aaral ung sis ko, mejo expensive pero wala na kc kami choice lalo na sa time malapit na kc xa mag 45…
  • @Celeana eto yung nsa AITSL application about criteria for ECE. Ung bachelors degree kahit anung field pero dapat may at least 1 year na initial education qualification (etong 1 yr ITE cguro yung equivalent ng 18units education sa pinas para dun sa …
  • @Celeana i agree with you kc wala sa SOL ang primary teacher pero kung meron I think pasok ung Bachelor in Elem. Educ. Since na early childhood ang gusto mo need mo mag-aral specifically for early childhood. Ganu katagal yung Masters mo? 2 years b…
  • @kymme yep, immigration will tell you any conditions or work rights for your bridging visa.
  • @kymme yes coz you need to be a PR or oz citizen to get medicare benefits. in terms of full work rights whilst on a bridging visa, you need to wait for the bridging visa grant letter from immigration to ensure that you have full work rights since yo…
  • @tine thanks. sana nga maging successful ung sis ko. yeah, kung may ibang way for you to come here thats good but if you dont have a lot option then think twice kasi before mahuli ang lahat kc immigration rules are changing and will continue to chan…
  • @Ozlaz its not impossible for secondary school teacher as long as ma-meet mo ung assessment requirements ng AITSL. Bihira kc yung teacher na pathway to migrate sa australia
  • @kutsara actually di ko din sure ung meaning ng initial teacher education pero sa hula ko cguro yun ung fundamentals ng pagiging teacher and specific cguro yun sa level ng tuturuan mo like if early childhood may specific na subjects na dapat cguro n…
  • @kymme it depends on the type of bridging visa. usually, immigration will tell you whether you can work or not. No medicare benefit whilst on bridging visa.
  • @tine did you check ung requirements ng AITSL for skills assessment? kc as far as I know may age range na required for practicum based sa gusto mo applyan like if early childhood dapat age 0 - 8 ata then naka-indicate sa letter ung age range. ung…
  • @kymme congrats! next would the visa grant
  • @ceasarkho NSW, Vic, SA. May mga additional specific requirements ung each state like Vic and SA na need mo ma-satisfy for SS.
  • @bettyboop hi, EOI is lodged sa immigration website then application for state sponsorship in Victoria is lodged sa victorian state migration website. if you have an application number from victorian state migration you can include that in you enq…
  • @bettyboop you can try but some agencies are strict and they will not tell you any information even though it's your own application 'coz your agent lodged it on your behalf
  • @kymme no worries! i am not sure exactly about your situation, are you on student visa? temporary graduate visa or 457? 457 coz you mentioned that you've presented permanent job offer to Vic state govt? if your visa is expiring soon, pick up the ph…
  • @kymme don't get me wrong, I am not saying its not true or she made it all up. what i'm saying was she's very lucky coz Vic considered her situation and not all state will do that. If that thing worked for her then maybe someone else is in the same …
  • @dyanisabelle congrats! yeah, grab the opportunity coz you may never know.
  • @cookieblend i-ensure mo lang na ung job description sa COE na ipapasa mo sa vetassess is same with anzsco just to be safe. there is no set frequency by when immigration will change the rules. July is the start of financial year in Australia and al…
  • @cookieblend i think the first thing you can do is to weigh your options and I would say you have to act fast coz rules are changing. Check vetassess website and gather your documents and submit it for skills assessment. Please note that vetassess i…
  • @madamA oh wow, walang nainvite below 75? they are making it hard for accountants.
    in Accountant Comment by Au_Vic October 26
  • @cookieblend you mentioned that your partner works as network and systems admin, you may want to explore the option of him being the primary applicant instead of you. South australia sponsors network/systems admin with minimum 70 points required (in…
