  • Which visa?????


    I posted a thread on 14th getting going... about which visa to apply
    for. Unfortunately I havent had any responses. For those of you who
    have applied for a skilled independent visa and who also have family who
    are willing to sponsor in australia pls could you assist.



    What i would like to know is the form that i need to complete a form
    1119 general skilled migration? I am a nurse and have relatives in
    Melbourne and Adelaide who can sponsor if necessary.



    I would appreciate any help thanks alot.

    Well that is odd that no one in this forum responded to your questions.



    All the information you are looking for is on the DIMIA website

    http://www.immi.gov.au/index.htm



    You more then likely would be applying under the skilled independent
    class 136.



    You will need booklet 1119 which you mentioned, as well you will need to
    download Form 47SK and Form 80, I don't know if everyone needs to fill
    out Form 80, from canada I did, it's a character assessment.



    You will also need to get your qualifications assessed. Your occupation
    falls under the MODL, meaning an occupation in demand, so your
    application to DIMIA would be fast tracked once you apply. ANCI
    (Australia Nursing Council Incorporated) is the authority that will be
    doing your assessment. their website is: www.anci.org.au

      Sorry I didn't notice your mention of an available sponser it would
      still be the same visa application, but you will be under a different
      subclass, not 136. Not sure what the sublass number is I believe it's
      139 but you will see it on the form and in the booklet when you download
      them. I believe you will need to download one other form as well for and
      Assurance of Support.

        We are applying for 139, but it's more paperwork and of course bond
        money too. As you are a nurse i would be inclined to go 136.

        Both are fast track, but 136 is less hassle in my humble opinion.

        Good luck whichever you decide.

          Here is how the points will work for you.



          Guaranteed Points

          Skill: 60

          Age: 25 (30-34 years old)

          English Language Ability: 20 (I am guessing being from the UK you are a
          native english speaker)

          Occupation in Demand: 5

          Total: 110



          This is not enough points, but you can gain points in a few other ways.



          Specific Work Experience: 10 (If you have been working as a nurse for 3
          out of the last 4 years you will gain these points, putting you at 120,
          which passes you.)



          Job Offer: 5 (if you have a job offer in australia in your nominated
          field, ie nursing)



          Spouse skills: 5 (if your husband has qualifications and meets the basic
          requirements of a visa you will recieve and additional 5 points, he
          would also have to be assessed)



          Capital Investment: 5 (If you are willing to make a 100,000.00 dollar
          capital investment in Australai you will gain another 5 points. I don't
          think you will need to do this)



          As far as the bond goes, if you need to have a sponser to get into
          Australia, the last I read it will cost you 3500.00 for the first
          person and then 1200.00 for each additional person in your application.
          If you go this route your sponser will also need to be making a certain
          amount of money. I do believe this money does get returned to you at a
          later date.



          Hope this helps

            MODL points are now 10, not 5. There is still an additional 5 points
            for a job offer.

            It makes sense to claim additional points, eg spouse skills, as an
            insurance policy.

            If you go with subclass 139 there is no points test. As someone else
            pointed out, there is more paperwork, on the other hand there is an
            appeal right, wihich is not the case with skilled independent
            (subclass 136).

              If you do get 10 points for being in an occupation in demand, you would
              meet the requirements of the points test, which is 115. I don't have the
              most current book 1119. It might be tough to obtain a suitable
              assessment for your husband without a formal education, but I am sure it
              has been done before.



              I personally would consider applying under your own merits, as it seems
              like you have the points.



              60 for skill

              25 for age

              20 for english

              10 for occupation in demand

              and if you have the 3 of 4 years work experience an additional 10

              That gives you a minimum total without the experince of 115 and a
              possible 125 with the experience.



              I would reccomend to make your application simpler to just go with your
              own assessment, you don't need any more points.

                Thanks very much for your help will print off the form 47sk and get it
                filled in whilst waiting form my assessment to come back. By the way
                have you any idea how long they take to come back? Maybe i should post
                a thread to nurses enquiring about this one.

                    Thanks for your replies the anci skills assessment sounds promising 3
                    and 4 weeks. I had heard that it can take as long as your visa so Im
                    now very optimistic. How long did it take you to get your transcript
                    from your university/college? I am awaiting a response from them.



                    i went to King Alfreds college maybe I should post a thread about that.



                    I will contact you if I have any queries if you dont mind. Pls let
                    us know how your visa is progressing and when do you get onto the
                    austime line?

                      Surley the NMC faxed the registration not the RCN or do the RCN need to
                      fax membership details?
