      Hi there.  We have already submitted the Form 80, PCC and Medicals as requested for our 143 visa (application dated Sept 2015).  On 15 July our son submitted all the info required for the AOS and was told they should have a decision by 21 August.  We have still not heard anything and on enquiring, he was told we just have to wait. On his Mygov account, it states "on hold". Any idea how long this could take?  Also, should we have an 'Immi' account at this stage? I wasn't successful when trying to open one.  Your advice is greatly appreciated.

      Hi Stephen
      Thanks to your response about a recent question of mine related to cancer.
      Could you please have a look at my post below. 
      When you apply for 190, do they only look at the years deemed skill on the Vetassess?
      VETASSESS only included some of the years I worked based on the docs submitted (so I will have to do a new assessment with new proof if I want all my last 10 years worked  included....)
      Regards johan

      Good day,
       
      I was wondering if you could help me out with some information. I want to migrate to Australia hopefully next year or whenever is soonest but I am a bit overwhelmed with all the information out there and where to start.
      I have a degree from Monash South Africa from when it was still under Monash Australia (BSc double major in Communications & media and Marketing) meaning i have both South African and Australian certificates for my undergrad. Is this something I can utilize? Judging from just this what would be the best visa to apply for?
      I would also like to know how much are your agent costs.

      Thank you in advance.
      Ney
