    Has anyone applied for citizenship lately?

    Wow that is pretty quick, any special circumstances that helped it along? I have been told that if you mention going to Uni and need citizenship for Hecs(sp) fees then they can expedite it.

    Has anyone applied for citizenship lately?

    I had to be in West Perth today and had to walk past the immigration building. Unbelievably as I walked past I received an email from Immi inviting me to a fast track ceremony on Nov 2nd. Bloody typical, they drag their feet all the way through the process and then when they actually decide to speed things up I'm at work, it lands right in the middle of my swing!

    189 and 190 Visa invitation

    For a 189, the last minimum points invited were for those on 85 and there were not many of them. For the 190, are you a graduate of West Australia?

  6. Hi. I have just lodged an EOI for 189 and 190 Visas.. With 80 and 85 points respectively. I am an Architect. Any ideas how long it might take to get an invite?

    Has anyone applied for citizenship lately?

    Funnily enough I got an email from Rockingham yesterday saying they are putting on an additional fast track ceremony in December due to "experiencing higher than usual numbers for 2019/2020"

    Don't bet on it, Rockingham is full until March for ceremonies and that was a month ago.

    Sending boxes from UK to WA

    Boxes are now in storage as our family can't bring ourselves to open them yet..... Let you know the condition of stuff when I get over to Queensland in November. However as a family we are very happy with the service that PSS provide.

    Residents return visa

    Ali is correct. If you apply for a visitor visa and you hold PR for Australia, you will cancel your PR visa. Your only option is to apply for a RRV. But it might be in your best interest to consult a Registered Migration Agent to discuss this. "New Life Down Under" who posts on this forum is a Registered Migration Agent that we recommend as she lives in Perth and is very efficient and knowledgeable.

    Finally it’s happened, my status on the immi portal has gone from received to approved. 14 months after application. Id guess that our ceremony date will be on invasion day!

    Residents return visa

    If you don't meet the residency criteria then the application process may be a little longer. You will need to document your substantial ties and the dept will decide if to issue you with a 5 year or 1 year RRV. I think if you travel on a visitor visa, you run the risk of cancelling your PR visa

    Nursing CV

    The CV can be in the same format - the key is to address the selection criteria when applying for jobs. Although I would mention in your CV your visa status e.g. PR. The key word for the selection criteria is 'demonstrate' . I would always suggest doing the selection criteria separately - eligibility for registration is usually the first and this just needs to be a sentence saying what your registration number is and when it expires. I've not seen the selection criteria for 'general' nursing, but e.g. in MH one of the criteria might be 'Demonstrated clinical knowledge and experience of evidence based nursing care within mental health" .. So you'd write what you know about evidence based practice and how you incorporate that into your work - give a clinical example to demonstrate this. All jobs may have different selection criteria - this is what is looked at in order to shortlist.

    Nursing CV

    I was wondering if any of the kind nurse types on here could take a look at my OH's CV and give us some pointers on how to improve it for Oz? Possibly @ali ? I've read through a few old threads but any fresh advice on job hunting would also be great. She's got lots of years ICU experience, the last two of which as a Junior Sister (Clinical Nurse?). Thanks

    WA State sponsored graduate?

    Did he complete his masters in WA?
  26. Hey guys thank you vert much for your kind words of support. I will re-double my efforts to get an 80+ mark on the next attempt! All the best to you guys aswell.
  27. Hi, Quick question, how long are you technically a graduate for? My husband finished his Masters in 2017 and his profession is on the WA state so sponsored list but it’s obviously been 2 years since he graduated. We’ve just lost 10 points by turning 40 as the skills asesssment has been taking so long so would be amazing if he was eligible for the grad state sponsored visa. Many thanks
  28. Like stormy says, plenty of of natives who are either not passing or not getting full points for it. Says enough about the test imho, but hey it is how it is. All the best with your next test.
