Hello bosses. I am sorry for asking this question here.
I'm a graduate registered Nurse in Nigeria and i understand i have to get registered in Australia as a licensed nurse before i can consider going through the assessing body.(AHPRA). My question is, Is there any nurse in the house that has undergone this process?
Secondly, are there recruitment agencies who can help with the IRON program for nurses since its so costly like 3million naira above for 12 months before you can get licensed?. Thank you

You can try TPG for a start...I think they have a promo for 6 months and you get 100 mins included to call basically any country and 10GB of data. i.e $15 for the first 6 months, thereafter $29.99.

Requirements are on the link sent to you previously. Pick the visa type that go with your needs (600, 601 or 651), select the country you are applying from and your country, age, purpose of visit - there you will see a document checklist.

As an example see below

A. Yes you can get a work visa through two ways, either getting a job in Australia from Nigeria or through skilled migration process. There is no direct application for work visa.
B. No direct work visa... Refer to A
C. Yes... you can confirm authenticity of a visa using VEVO. Google would be very useful here.
D. No fixed prices, changes per season and per airline... Google will help.
E. No cost at the airport except taxi fare or bus fare.. not more than $60 if living too far from airport.
F. You are permitted to carry $10k and below cash. If more, you need to declare it. No rule about BTA, you can leave with $0, it is up to you.

You will benefit from reading this thread.

My question isnt really related to PR and all.
I am 7months pregnant and want to apply for a Visa for mumsy to come and stay like a month with me after the baby is born. I do not know how to go about this. Do we apply for regular tourist visa? Or family sponsored? We'll be paying for her trip so I'm confused.
Anyone with any experience/ideas/suggestions? I'm a PR married to australian citizen.
Thank you!

Apply for tourist Visa(subclass 600) not family sponsored. There is a place to indicate that she will be visiting family and that you'll be sponsoring her trip. PM me if you need help.

Cheers!

I am not too familiar with this; but i believe if you can indicate that she will be coming for Omugwo and that it is part of your tradition that a lady that just give birth must have her mother looking after her for 3months.

I believe they read widely and should understand that some tribes in Nigeria (i know of East) have such tradition.
And i don't waNt to believe that their "Citizen requested for someone to visit them and they turned the APP down.

Those who has passed such hurdles will soon come online to guide you more.

Tradition in itself isn't enough reason why it will be granted. As a PR/Citizen you are entitled to visits from family members. For this reason, a single guy/girl living in Australia can also invite his/her parents to come visit him/her. The Australian government does not wish to separate/isolate you from your immediate family.

Tourist Visa is sufficient in this case. She could do more than Omugwo for you sef.

Terror attack in Melnourne CBD tonight, one victim killed, 2 persons sustained stab wounds. Found out the suspect is black, seems he's from Somalia. Im really sad and pissed about this, cos some racist papers will milk this story and if anything this just keeps making blacks look bad.
Re: Living In Australia/life As An Australian Immigrant by jayooh: 11:43pm On Nov 09
Good day all, please has anyone travelled down to Australia with different flight tickets and/or airline operators that connect in either China or Singapore? Please what was your stop over experience like? Any hassles from immigration, especially when you have to do a self transfer of checked baggage to the connecting flight.

I understand you don't need a visa if you're not leaving the airport, but what of when you need to pick up your checked in luggage from the flight that got you down there from naija and then check it in to the next or last leg of your flights?

Some tickets actually are indicating self-transfer, any better idea of what is meant by these online booking agents?

Thanks all
Re: Living In Australia/life As An Australian Immigrant by Tuteso: 12:29am On Nov 10
Not a good sign. For Arrival to transit, you dont get to the conveyor belt. If you need to do, better be ready to show a visa sir. Be careful o

If you are a PR or citizen then you’d be able to write them invititation and believe me the process is easy and straightforward. I had my mum and my sister over last month, my wife wrote the invite as she’s a citizen n I’m not (me=TR). I did the application myself and it took 3 weeks to process and receive their grants, all they did was get their biometrics captured in Lagos and there’s no medicals for the tourist visa steam. If you need any information please don’t hesitate to ask, good luck!

In my opinion, there's no 'best' suburbs as such. It all depends on factors that are unique to each individual. Do you have a job waiting already? Where's your office at? What is your rental budget?

My advice is to come first � As the unknowns become known, it wouldn't be difficult to figure out the 'best' suburb for YOU. A suburb change is not unlikely within your first six months. So a temporary accommodation might be the way to go until you find yourself the perfect suburb. Cheers.

The city is a better version of Lagos. There's the hustle and bustle associated with big cities. Lots of weekend fun activities for all categories of people. You will be spoilt for choice. No cause for any anxiety. You should be fine.

Camperdown appears close to Newtown. I have only been to Newtown once or twice but the number of blacks I saw in just one visit was more than I saw in seven months of living at Kingsford. It won't be long before you start bumping into Nigerians (and other Africans). Cheers.

Thank you so much for responding to me. I have a job already. My office is located at Barangaroo Avenue. i think its a central business district. in terms of rent i have a budget of 350 to 400 AUD per week. I am curious, how is rent paid, can we stay short term in a place for like 3 months to be sure we like the area. My company is providing accommodation for a week to enable us get something more permanent so we are trying to search places online and book viewings so that we can use that week to do just inspections and probably move in to which ever we like. Lastly please is a car an immediate necessity in Sydney.
