Hi guys, good work going on here. please I wanna ask a question, I want to go for MSc IT, and am having QUT n UTas in mind. Please does anyone have advice on which is best (consideration: Job n PR after program).

Also if u know a better school for this course having in mind the above stated factors, I would appreciate advice. Plus am married and have a baby on the way n intend going with family.

Thanks guys
Both school are ok since they are on AL1, have it in mind that getting a PR with IT profession presently is not easy, you will have to get up 85points for ITA 189 and also consider that things may change before you finish your studies. Schooling doesn't automatically guarantee PR, you will have to follow same process like any one else, IT jobs are also competitive. I will advise you to go for university of Tasmania.
* Tasmania is regarded as a regional area, you will get extra 5points (or more) for schooling in a regional as well as 5points for one or more Australian degree.
* You may be eligible for state nomination if your course is on Tasmania skill nomination list.

Good day everyone, I want to enquire for a friend. His Australian girlfriend wants him to come over for marriage, though the girlfriend is willing to come to Nigeria first for a visit.

1. What category of visa do you think he would need to visit Australia

2. What do you think it's best, should the marriage take place here in Nigeria or Australia.

3.Can he apply for Partner visa while on tourist stream visa in Australia if the marriage is held here in Nigeria.

4. What documents would he need to apply for the visa.

5.With the conditions stated above, what other options do you suggest?

I look forward to your response seniors in the house.

1. What category of visa do you think he would need to visit Australia

He would need a visitor's visa to come to Australia.

2. What do you think it's best, should the marriage take place here in Nigeria or Australia.

If he is able to make it to Australia on a visitor visa then its best to have the marriage done in Aus, if not then 9ja.
The advantage of having the Marriage done here is that he gets to stay on a bridging visa after he has applied for his spouse visa. Hopefully his visitors visa doesn't come with a No Further Stay condition. Then he won't be able to apply for a spouse visa while in Aus.


3.Can he apply for Partner visa while on tourist stream visa in Australia if the marriage is held here in Nigeria.

Yes he can only if he doesn't have the No Further Stay Condition on his visitors visa. You may want to read more on that

4. What documents would he need to apply for the visa.

What visa?

5.With the conditions stated above, what other options do you suggest?

Are they financially buoyant? They can try a study visa and then change to spouse visa.
Reason is because processing times has changed. It take about 3-5years for a decision to be made. Lots of background checks.


I look forward to your response seniors in the house.

Your replies appear to be kind of deep, so I will assume you are in Australia or have some one of close relationship there. I wanna ask two questions, we may be different, but sometimes we have People with similar wants/needs. What/where will be your decision if it was a choice for you to make or assist your brother in making. Also, I have lived outside Nigeria and visited other countries too, so I know family security is different from when it’s just a man abroad. So please put all factors in when replying. I just wanna make the right decision not just for myself, but family too. Also if u need to ask me questions of personal nature to help in advice, please feel free to, I believe it is all for good.

If you can share more on this, I would appreciate and thanks for the time spent already. Really do appreciate

Oga, you better go and read more about this partner visa yourself. I'm not a pessimist. The student visa I applied for has highest rejection rate but I went on it. I'm hoping to get my grant very soon.

Once you make more findings on the internet, you'd understand why I said it's a long thing. Australia marriage visa is expensive, complex, frustrating and time wasting. A Nigerian passport won't help the situation.

The chances of getting a visit visa is extremely low with a Nigerian passport. And once an application is rejected you might not be eligible for a partner visa again.

Like @WestAfrican said, the other and better option for you is to apply through student visa and then get married in Australia. If the marriage is not a genuine one, tell whoever the person is to forget it. Australia is no America #My2Cents.

Hi there, Sydney is getting congested and the govt is looking for avenues to decongest the city. That doesn't make you will get an automatic denial on your visa, is just me educating you and what's happening here at the moment.

There is no express visa processing for your course or degree, it will be looked into just like every other application.



and PR over there.

Accounting is one profession that make it on the list every now and then. I know a couple of people who applied via state nomination eg Regional NSW Armidale, Tasmania and Northern territory.

Assuming your first degree was in accounting, you will still need to score at least ielts band 7 to stand a chance for state nomination
.



Wait for those who know that route well to shed more light on it.

Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth are the main happening cities, Adelaide is even considered as a regional area. Have been to Tasmania, what i noticed is sparse population, no functional train system aside the one going to mines, nearly every body have a car, job opportunities is limited but if you can live there getting PR is easier same as Northern Territory (Darwin) which has a more lesser population than Tasmania couple with harsh weather similar to that of Kano but Tasmania is the coldest state in Australia on average. I onced said on this forum that there is limited jobs opportunities in Tasmania and someone living there tackled me that there is enough jobs maybe i didn't explore enough, although i didn't stay more than four weeks and it was just a visit and that was my experience.
Melbourne has countless jobs opportunities in as much as you are not lazy & you don't mind doing any kind of job, regional Victoria like Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo have limited jobs opportunities that is why most students schooling in those areas have to come down to Melbourne to hustle which is not easy.
Jobs are in the big cities but limited in regional areas, schooling and living in regional areas will give you extra points while applying for PR and some regional areas may even sponsor you and this opportunity is not applicable to those schooling in the cities. Victoria for instance, only sponsor PHD holders in selected profession, that's why some Nigerians that came to study are moving to Tasmania after there studies while some are even applying for credit transfer before completing their studies (personally, i know of five Nigerians that have made such decision).
The choice is yours whether to have it easy in case your occupation is competitive by moving to regional area with limited jobs opportunities and the possibility of getting a state sponsorship or stay in the big cities with unlimited jobs opportunities and battle for PR.
PS: Those that are moving to regional areas are doing so for visa conditions, after getting PR and abiding by the conditions which maybe two to four years of living in a regional area couple with certain number of working hours, most have the intention of relocating to the big cities after satisfying their visa conditions.

I really appreciate this explanation even though I was not the one who requested for it.
I'm admitted to federation university, Ballarat campus and I'm waiting for my visa to be processed. Someone already told me there are limited job opportunities but I can plan myself and work at Melbourne which is about 1hr from Ballarat. I'm optimistic everything will turn out well.

Thanks bro. Any idea about their metro system and if it’s functional. @bligs adviced same, but in his further explanation, he mentioned some things that are also important, like metro, diverse job opportunity and all that. This are factors that are very important too, MSc IT in QUT is in Brisbane, which is part of the cities with opportunity, so now it leads me back to the doing lot of thinking again, cos both got their own advantages n disad. But functional metro system is a big factor for a fresher in a country. U can’t just buy a car immediately. You need to know lots about the routes and road system. Metro saved my trip to France, Paris metro system is wonderful that, there is a station that’s just some few minutes walk to your house. Same experience in India and other countries. Functional metro is a big factor for me. Uber for short distance can cost as much as 30-40 euro. That poo can be crazy. A weekly or monthly metro/bus pass is always a saver for someone in a foreign land.
