Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.

Student Visa or TSS 482 work visa

kriziakrizia PhilippinesPosts: 23Member
Hi po. Newbie lang ako dito. Ask ko lang po TSS 482. Im a registered nurse po here sa pinas. 1st plan ko po yung mag student visa kaso may refusals po ako na 2 sa visitor visa which is malaking impact daw sa GTE ng student visa ko may chance daw hndi ako maapprove kaya second option namin ng agent ko yung work visa. May chance po ba na makakuha ako ng sponsorship? Confused po ako sa mga friends ko na Aus RN na pero nahihirapan sila makahanap ng sponsor pano pa kaya ako na hindi aus RN tpos manggagaling pa ko sa pinas. Ano po kaya magandang pathway?? Medyo nasstress na rin ako. Sana matulungan nyo po ako.

    @krizia You will need to be an AuRN first before expecting to be sponsored, which means you will undergo the registration process via Bridging Program, outcomes-based-assessment (by around mid-2019), or nursing conversion course.
    Here are some sub-forums about being a nurse in Australia:

    I think your agent is a FRAUD.
    Why would he/she suggest TSS 482 Visa for you eh hindi pa po kayo AU RN? I think if alam talga niya yung details ng 482 TSS visa alam niya na requirement of that visa is may skill ka na accredited/ackno ditto sa AU. for nurses, you have to undergo Bridging or conversion to become AU RN.

    Just saying.
