Please does Australia have settlement plans like Canada? I mean a group that ensures their PR immigrants settle-in by providing training ( usually free) on courses , mentoring, etc?

Well, each state has group where assistance is offered. Alternatively, you can contact the Nigerian Association in your state for assistance.

thank you for your swift response. Please how much do I need to declare. I am migrating alone. *not with family

Why do you want to leave your family behind? Spouse/family visa is actually more stressful than PR visa.

It is better you do the application together now except you are single.

The error is from the school. Have to the school for correction but was told nothing can be done.


You should do a court affidavit that the school made an error on your birth certificate. Mention that your birth date is same in all documents except the transcript.

It should be enough.

Please I need you all to help me out here, I’m really confused on how to go.

I’m currently a student in Sydney doing MBA and Project Management Course (Double Masters Degree) will finish next year.

I have my bachelors in Elect/Elect and had 3 years working experience in Telecom bfr coming to Australia.

I’m 29

Now problem is what is the best route for me.

Questions:

1. Is it possible to get 190 or 491 nominations (using my bachelors and 3yrs telecom exp) from other states (Tas, Adelaide, NT) even when I am in Australia but not living or studying in their state.

2. Is Project Management as a Course in any of the states occupation list?

3. Is it possible to get NSW 190 or 491 nominations even when I have been living in “Sydney” for a year now (I can get upto 75points using my bachelors and 3years exp)

4. NSW and Adelaide has “Program/Project Administration” in their list, can I apply for this occupation with a degree in Project Management.

5. Should I pause the Course I’m doing here in Sydney and relocate to regional area to take up a more promising course?

I’m just confused, I don’t want to do EA assessment with my bachelors and at the end it won’t fetch me anything cos I’m onshore and in “Sydney”

I need clarifications pls
Thank you

You can't get 190 for any of the aforementioned states (Tas, NT and South Australia) since you didn't study up to 2years in those states and also there is a different between Project Manager and MBA/Project Management, the former is a profession (job title/position which you ascend to) while the latter is just a course. MBA/Project Management as a course isn't on the skill occupation list.
Yours options are:
Assess your bachelor's degree, head to Tasmania and try the 491 by getting a permanent or temporary job for six months, it doesn't have to be related with your nominating occupation.
Enrol in one year diploma or cert iv in trades occupation in Tasmania (make sure they're on Tassie occupational list).
For South Australia, Western Australia and Northern Territory, you may have to work up to one year in a closely related occupation.
OR
Enrol in a 2years course in any of these states, make sure that the course is on their skill occupation list and stand a chance for 190.

Please Help !!!

Do kids below 18yrs need Bio-metrics ?

Also does onshore adult need another bio-metric ?

Does TLS Contact at Maryland Lagos Teleperformance/Biometric work for Skilled Visa or it has to be at VFS Lekki ? (Did Biometrics there 2016 and 2017 for study visa).

Please what is the time to visit the location ?
Re: DIY Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa - Part 2 by bellong: 3:02pm On Mar 02
@Vikmeek,

What was your motivation for studying MBA despite your first degree?

These are the possible options you have:

1. When you graduate, look fir a job in program/project administration and work for a year before doing the skills assessment with VETASSES. You will then apply for state nomination (190/491) in NSW.

2. Forget about applying for state nomination from other states different from your state of residence if you are onshore. None of the states will consider you if you are not resident in their state. NT may give a little consideration but it is like a Carmel passing through the eye of a needle.

3. Ditch your current program, apply for Masters in your first degree course or any course that has potential longevity on the occupation list. While considering this, look outside NSW or Victoria. You can check WA, TAS or SA and maybe QLD.

4. Consider bligs recommendations

5. Assess your first degree and experience, apply for NSW nomination while still living there and see what happens.

6. On a side note, you have been here long enough to accept to go for such course.

@LondonBook,

Biometric is only for temporary visas. If you are applying for permanent resident visa or pathway to PR visas, biometric is not required.

@Triggerdaclub,

Yes, you should be able to get registration with Masters of Nursing provided the university is accredited by AHPRA. However, you will need to proof to the case officer assessing your visa application why you want to study study despite having Medicine as first degree.

If you are coming as a student, be prepared to write the AMC while still in school so you can ease into PR application. It is easier to write it while still studying compared to when you graduate and have little time to prepare.


Alternatively, write PLAB in the UK, practice in the UK for a year or two and migrate to Australia.

Please house I want to confirm, is it mandatory to have 7.0 in my IELTS before I could be eligible because I only score 5.5 in my Listening, 5.0 in my reading, 5.5 in writing and 6.0 in speaking, Over all total 5.5 is it possible for me to be eligible for the Australia residence permit application, though I want to apply for Human resources manager and it falls in Visa subclass 190 and 491. The assessing board which is [b]AIM [/b]did not request any English proficiency. Please can I proceed with the application with my IELTS result or I will need to write another one?
One more thing, how can I get nominated by the state?
Kindly please assist me...May God bless you.

The points are not reducing, those that are waiting should give study route a shot if financially bouyant or opt for Canadian PR.

Please explain this chart,does it mean that the least person that was invited for 491 scored 75 , and with the regional skill got 90?
Re: DIY Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa - Part 2 by Sumji: 8:37am On Mar 03
Noted! Thanks a lot!

bligs:

Most students have the opinion that 2years is long enough to get a PR and this make them feel relaxed which is not totally true as getting PR in some occupation may takes longer.
If your course is highly competitive and your points is no where near the minimum requirements for your occupation, move to a regional area and explore the opportunity there or enrol in a short program that will lead to nomination.
A lot of people are fixated to Melbourne and Sydney waiting for PR that's not forthcoming and saying there's no job in the regional areas but on the contrary people in those places are surviving.
It is better to be in a regional area and get your PR between 3 to 5years then move to a place of your choice than to be in the city running around a circle.
PS: Tasmania is not a bad place but opportunities there are limited compared to other places like VIC and NSW, their 491 is favourable to those onshore and yet most people won't give it a second thought.

Not mandatory, however any band less than 7 in IELTS is zero point for English which will reduce your total points drastically.
AIM does not require English test for assessment however you will need the English result to be able to apply for state nomination.
NT and VIC are open to minimum of IELTS 6, however these and other states also have other requirements like having 85 points in total. The possibility of having up to 75 points with zero points in English is low.
Most states won't consider an HRM with a 5.5 in IELTS when Trade occupation applicants are currently going beyond Competent English to get ITA.
IF you report directly to the MD of your organisation, please proceed with your AIM assessment while you prepare for another IELTS or switch to PTE.

Good luck.

Yes, the family can stay over and PA comes back.
I don't know the maximum time you can stay in Nigeria but you may not be able to apply for 191 PR at exactly 3 years cos the family members in the application has to show proof of working and living in regional Australia for 3 years.
Accommodation being expensive is relative. There are cheap accommodation in each state/city. The farther you move from the City/CBD, the cheaper.
When you also get grant, you are given 1 year to land. So you can take your time, gather the money and move once.

Thanks brother.

The course I’m currently doing is actually MBA and Master of Project Management and I think the Project Mgt is in NSW list as “Program/Project Administrators” so any occupation like “Project Coordinator” can assess with it too and it’s on “high” availability with no conditions .

This means that it’s in demand and you don’t need to have local or “NSW” experience to apply unlike the “Business Analysts” that has condition of atleast 12 months NSW working experience.

Also other most occupations in Engineering are either “Limited” availability or “Low” availability making it so competitive.

I have taken note of your suggestions

My motivation is job prospects beyond PR. MBA &Project Mgt are great courses in terms of getting a good job if one has paper here, the other one which is IT has been dominated by Indians and Parkistans making it difficult for other nationals to pull through,

Initially I was gonna assess with my bachelors, which is in engineering,

I like your recommendations, Thank you

Hi @Bodacious1 @tunlex01

Thanks for helping so far. I've submitted documents to ACS for skills assessment. I was wondering if there is any thing I could be doing while waiting for the outcome.

Like Health check, Police check etc.

Just enter before the date as they have advised to avoid stories that touch. All other things may be done at a more later stage. You dont want to be at the other side of the fence when it comes to immigration. My 2 cents tho

Good day guys, I have a question in regards to the 489/491 visa and having gone through the thread, I can't seem to find an answer so I will appreciate if someone can help with an answer. My brother in law applied for the 489 visa in October 2019. Given that the 489 visa is no more, will he be granted a 489 visa with the conditions of a 491 attached or be granted a 491 visa with its attached conditions?
