MIGRATION MADE EASY
SKILLS ASSESSMENTS: All ‘Skilled’ visa applicants must be skilled assessed to be eligible to migrate to Australia. Approved skills assessments will now last only 3 years.
Intending migrants with no formal qualifications can still be ‘skills assessed’ via a process known as ‘Recognised Prior Learning’.
Some 457 visa applicants also need to be 'Skills Assessed'. Contact Us now for 'no obligation' FREE advice.
SKILLED OCCUPATION LIST: Good news for those in the ‘Construction Industry’ as Bricklayers and Wall and Floor Tilers have been put on the new ‘Skilled Occupation List’
These occupations were removed from the list 2 years ago, however an acute shortage was quickly experienced due to the surge in new home starts and they were re-added.
ALSO, if you are in the ‘Hospitality’ industry the good news is that ‘Chefs’ have also been added to the list. This is especially important if you are commercial cookery student already in Australia because residency options are now available.
PERMANENT RESIDENCY FOR 457 VISA HOLDERS: A common pathway to becoming a permanent resident is if you have worked for your employer for 2 of the last 3 years.
This can be done via the ‘Temporary Residence Transition Stream’. You may also be able to apply for an alternative permanent position (if your current temporary position is not available for permanency) as long as they are closely related.
You will also not need to be ‘skills assessed’ in this category so Contact Us now for our Free 'no obligation' assessment as the way forward in this category can be complicated.
STUDENTS - NEW ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEST: From November 2014 English language test scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based test (TOEFL & IBT) and the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) across the Temporary Graduate, Skilled, Former Resident and Work and Holiday visa programmes will be accepted.
