  • Some Questions?


    I wish I found this site sooner :-)



    Anyway I'm looking at emigrating to Aus or NZ not sure which as its only
    early days yet. I have looked through the official sites but they don't
    make it easy (Must part of the entry requirements).



    My first question is my wife will soon be a midwife and as such can
    emigrate as soon as she is qualified (No waiting or work exp needed for
    nurses/midwifes). Can we get in only on her points or do I have to get
    the same passing mark?? I work in IT but don't have any recognised
    qualifications :-(



    I have worked out the points just for her and its over the present pass
    mark....I just don't know if I can go to!!



    Second question is if the points are over the pass mark and all police
    and medic records are OK is it a dead cert that you will get in?? or
    does it come down to how the official is feeling that day.



    Thanks

    Hi,

    Don't know about Aus, although I'm sure it would be the same, but for NZ
    you would be included in the application regardless of your points. With
    your wife being a midwife I'm sure you would have no problems, she would
    need a job offer first (NZ) but this shouldn't be too difficult.



    The rules are changing soon for NZ, at present if you meet the criteria
    then you're in, but the new policy won't be so clear cut, maybe, don't
    really know yet!

    Again though as a midwife I'd imagine it's virtually guaranteed
    you'll get in.



    Good luck, Gra..

      Thx for your reply.....



      I hope they don't make to many changes for the NZ entry (Aus would most
      prob follow aswell). It would be like saying if you have this and all
      this then we might just let you in :-)

        Some Questions?

        Hi Kamanchi,

        For Oz I'm pretty sure that even Midwives require 12 out of the last
        18 months experience at a minimum of 20 hours per week when applying
        for skilled migration visa.

        David

          Thx David,



          After spening alot of time researching this yesturday I worked that out.
          Its a shame becuase it adds another year to the whole process but theres
          no rush for us.



          My backup plan is to get a OU Diploma in IT so I can apply in my
          name...I have six year experience behind me so we could go striaght
          away. Also by the time I get the Diploma I would have enough for the
          extra points for work experince.



          Does anyone know if a OU Dip is recognised by the ACS?? (I have read ALL
          of their site but they don't list that information)

            I think that you will find that your wife will need to have worked 12 out of the last 18 months post registration experience before she can settle in oz under the skilled migration, is you are being sponsored then you need to have worked 6 out of 12 months

            hope this helps
            Thanks
