Fake news.

There's no rank in the Army with "Lieutenant Commander".

Command and Staff college is a military school for the whole Armed Forces (Army, Navy and Airforce). They have staff across the forces.

Lt Commander is a rank in the navy. While the report may not be true, the rank is not the evidence to dismiss the report.

@tunlex01, @bellong and others please I will appreciate your suggestions.


No, don't keep them out of the application. The process to apply for spousal visa is strenuous and more expensive aside that it takes very long time except you are very lucky.

They don't have to go with you once visa is approved, only have to activate the visa on or before the deadline for arrival day.

Whatever you do, don't leave them out of your application.

Having an error while trying to lodge ..
I’m not claiming work experience, do I still need to fill out my work history ??
Because bit brings up an error after ticking experience in the last ten years and clicking next

Don't tick you have experience in the last 10 years. Tick no to it.

Alternatively, put in the experience you have and tick not relevant so it will not count towards experience point.

Thanks for this reply. The assessment was for Commercial Cookery and it came out positive in 2019 (that time, there was need to have (Nigerian Diploma = AQF Cert III with 3 years experience). As at the time of assessing it in 2019, it was about 4yrs experience so no work experience point was given. Now that there is an extra 3yrs Australian experience [Same work Place and Same Cook], do you think 10points for 3yrs Australian experience is claimable when submitted to DHA without asking for the experience to be assessed by Assessing body ? Thank you for your time.

Yes, you can claim 10 points since you are still in the same occupation and same workplace.

Please... What I want to know is this, the Australian experience was not assessed for points with vetassess but just the qualification and the important 3 years post study experience needed to have a positive outcome. Do you think DHA will approve points for the new "unassessed" Australian experience gotten years after the assessment?

So I understand you, your assessment was completed using the first 3 years of work experience prior to having Australian experience right?

If that is so, all experience post assessment that are within the same occupation will count towards experience points. Yes, you can use them for Australian experience points if gotten within Australia.

In your assessment outcome letter, VETASSES would have noted two things at least
1. One year qualifying experience deducted from your experience.
2. Experiences not relevant to occupation being assessed will not count towards the assessment.

Good day peeps! Am 32 years, single, medical doctor with 5 years work experience, IELTS GT LRWS 8.5/9/7.5/7.5. Assessment as a doctor could be a long thing, and I will appreciate advice on the options I have for a quick invitation to apply.

Are you also an electrician?

I will advice that you write PLAB, work in the UK for one year and then use that to move to Australia.

This is my first time here. I have gone through the previous chat and here is my profile.

Degree - M Art Human Resource Management (University of Hertfordshire UK) , CIPD (UK)
Work Experience - Human Resources, Currently a manager with total 8 years of experience
Status - Married
IELTS - 7.5

Spouse

I have checked, and I noticed both Jobs are on the sight132311: Human Resource Manager and 272312: Educational Psychologist

Please what is the next process? I will really appreciate any help or insight. Thank you

You can assess for human resource manager. Your husband is working as an educational consultant which is quite different from educational psychologist except he has had prior experience as an educational psychologist in the last 10 years. He will not get a positive assessment for educational psychology.

US - GEOGRAPHY (GIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), CANADA-GEOGRAPHY (GIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), AUSTRALIA-ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT (GIS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR WILDFIRE).


For a start, I will say ask God for direction. It is what I do when faced with problem of choice.

Now to human understanding, I will pick Australia over the other two as GIS has a pathway to permanent residence particularly study of identifying solutions to wildfire problem. While Canada also has a good pathway to PR, Australia has other advantages like better weather, better pay, ease of settling compared to Canada and others. The advantage Canada may have over Australia from my position may be the closeness to the USA for those who have relatives in the USA.

Reason I asked the source of the scholarship is because if it is government sponsored, all the three countries expect you to return to Nigeria post study for at least one year. Seeing you have no such clog in the wheel, Australia is a good choice.

If you have experience in GIS, you can start your PR processing even before you start or complete your study.

Congratulations and all the best in your decision making. May heaven lead you.

Which state is the university in Australia?

Hello everyone!
@our gurus in the house please I need some clarification...
My skills assessment came through with 0 years work experience cos I had 1 year xperience as at the time I applied and that was absorbed as my qualifying period.
I've been working since then, Nd hv 1 more year xperience now;
Pls is there a way to include this xtra detail when submitting my eoi as the requirement I saw for my job was at least 1yr experience?

To get any experience point, you must have at least 3 years for 5 point. So the one year is not relevant.

You don't need proof of fund for any of the visa class. Although some states may ask you to declare funds available to you but will not necessarily ask for evidence except Northern Territory.

Okay, here we are on day 9. My experience so far:

I experienced loosening of my muscles/tissues, I think this is due to the fat loss.
Also on days I had steak for dinner, but ate late ( 8pm -9pm) my weight increased at nighttime (I checked) and my weight the next morning was same as or slightly different from the previous morning. My average weight loss on a regular day was 0.5kg.

So if you have reduced activity in the evenings, I advise that you eat dinner by 7 pm or switch your lunch for dinner.

Then on the day I ate by 7pm and took a 2-hour walk after, I lost 1kg.

Cheers.

Eating late generally increases risk of weight gain. It is usually advised that if you have to eat late, eat something very light and easily digestible by the system.

You are doing well

Where the courses I offered in the Nigerian university are insufficient..I will take Australia law courses to complement it,then I am already in Australia!

What makes you feel it will take me 2years to complete it? The Nigerian legal system is similar to that of the Australia legal system .... We offer similar courses including our practical legal training courses.

The only thing I need is to take IEIT test to meet the requirements...(although you may be correct but I strongly think for immigration purposes my qualifications only need to be assess).


Please I need clarification on this...

I did try to explain why in previous post. While we both practice the common law system, there are differences in country specific law. The courses you will be asked to do will take you two academic sessions to complete.

This is not to discourage you but to prepare you for what is ahead.

Goodluck.

You don't need to have tax clearance for the 8 years. You can use pension statement, bank statement and payslip in addition to the tax certificate.

I am a Nigerian lawyer and wish to migrate to Australia via Visa subclass 189...I want to know if barristers are still in demand in Australia.... I have carried out my point calculations and I scored 75 points..

2. How Long will it take the assessing body (Legal Profession Admission Board ) to access my qualifications?

3. Any barrister in the house ?

1. Yes, Barristers and Solicitors are in demand everywhere including Australia. Until you complete an assessment and English test, you can't award yourself points.

2. Depending on how easy you are able to provide documentations required. However, you cannot get a positive assessment straight. You need to be called to the bar in Australia prior to having a positive assessment.
The law profession is not like science that is universal. You will likely be subject to take some Australian law courses before a positive assessment. This may take you 2 years to complete.

3. What do you want to know?

Three options:

Pay through your local bank in Nigeria raising form 20 or whatever it is called.

Buy dollar equivalent from BDC or Northerners and deposit in your dorm account, then do wire transfer.

Lastly, find someone who can help you pay in Australia while you pay Naira equivalent.

Thank you for responding. I did not see AHPRA on the ANZSCO search website, but MedBA. Are they same body. I was just trying to avoid doing the exams from back home.

Medical board is responsible for oversight and regularisation of medical practice while AHPRA is responsible for national registration and accreditation of all health practitioners. So to get a positive assessment from the medical board, you must first be registered as a health practitioner in Australia which AHPRA does.

This information is available on medical board website.

@bellong, is it compulsory for a Doctor to get the medical license before applying for the PR even if he/she doesn't wish to practice for a while

If you are nominating a medical occupation, you must be registered with AHPRA before applying for PR. To register with AHPRA, you must pass the medical exam.

Other options are Medical administrator if you are one or Primary Health organisation manager.
