Hi, I just want to ask for a genuine advice regarding what to take first - I have already consulted a Migration Agency in PH and was informed that I passed the skills assessment (preliminary) and my profession is included in CSOL and the state that I want to live/work with is currently open. Would like to ask if I should take first the IELTS and passed the required component for each category or immediately signed an agreement with the Agency and proceed my application. Also, I was advised that Vetassess assessment will take 5 months (maximum processing time) to send out favorable letter and once the application is favorable, EOI is the next step which IELTS results are needed. I am just torn between: (1) taking & passing the IELTS or (2) signing the agreement with the Agency and proceed with Vetassess assessment since I can take IELTS during the processing time of Vetassess.
Thank you very much for your kind assisstance and every advice will be of great help.
