      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.

      We have finally been asked to proceed with the AOS, medicals etc (143 visa).  We have completed the Form 80 as requested but not sure how to get it to them.  Must I scan each page and email it to them together with the Police Clearance or can I send it all by courier?  Perhaps I need an Immi account? Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

      Hi Hugo

      I came across your name on the forums and I am hoping you can provide some guidance.
       
      My wife and I would like to initiate the process to financially immigrate from South Africa. I have provided some more information regarding our situation below. 
       
      We immigrated to Australia on a 189 PR visa in August 2018
      I have been employed since November here in Australia, my wife is on home duties. 
      We both have Mercantile bank accounts which we have been using to transfer ZAR to AUD through Rand Rescue. (I am happy to close these if going through FNB is easier)
      We both have retirement annuities with PPS investments (roughly R250 000 total)
      We both have cheque accounts with FNB, I also have a credit card with FNB. 
      We have a joint bank account with Commonwealth Bank in AUS. 
       
      I approached one or two financial immigration agents, however that would cost me nearly 10% of my investment in fees. So I am hoping to tackle the process myself. 

      If you have any advice you could possibly give on the process and the way forward it would be greatly appreciated.

      Lastly as it is almost tax season in South Africa, should we proceed with submitting a final tax return to SARS? We were both employed up and till end July 2018. 
       
      Kind regards
      Leroy & Claudia du Plessis
