When to Submit an EOI

Recommended Posts

pmayes

Hi All,

Hoping for some advice.

I will be getting my Skills Assessment tomorrow from Aus finally.

So I now will have my PCC, my Birth Certificate, all other docs will be certified and the Skills Assessment, the only thing I will be outstanding is my Unabridged Birth Certificate which I applied for on the 12th September.

Should I submit my EOI now or should I wait till I have my Unabridged Birth Certificate?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Paul

I would say go ahead and submit now. It will be a while until you get an invite and then you still have 60 days to lodge your visa application. So hopefully you will have the birth certificate by then. If not, you can still apply without it and it will be 2 months or so (based on my own experience and that of others on the forum recently) until you have case officer that will be requesting documents that are outstanding.

I think most people submit the EOI without having all documents ready so I say go for it.

Hi pmayes

I would lodge the EOI now. The sooner you can get an invite, the better. The next invite date is on Monday so I would submit by Sunday. Once you receive an invite you can lodge without it. When you have a CO (which seems to be about 2 months after applying for the visa), they will request outstanding information. You should have you birth certificate by then. Good luck and I hope all goes well.

I agree. You can and should lodge the EOI now. And, if you get an invitation before you have the UBC, you can lodge the visa application without it.

Just make sure that all documents especially the skills assessment English tests etc are dated before the date you submit your EOI. If your skills assessment is dated say 25th October and you submit an EOI on the 24th October you can get into trouble.

Hey All,

Thanks for the advice really is much appreciated.

So the EOI has been submitted, so now we play the waiting game again it seems lol.

Sumbitted with 65 points so I am hoping I get selected soon. Would be great to get all stuff done as soon as possible, think the sooner it is done the better.

Have a good weekend all.

Cheers

So EOI submitted Friday 24 Oct, Invitation received Sunday 26 Oct with 65 points. Bonus super stoked.

Does anyone know if I need to get medicals done now or do I wait for CO?

Now just for my favourite friends DHAF...

Cheers

Once you lodge your visa application you get a link to start the medical documentation. You need a HAPID to book for the medicals.

Just be careful of waiting for your UBC. I applied end of April. I am still waiting for mine - but I had an older one I used - I ended up having to use an agent and pay R1000 to get my hubbies one out of DOHA.

Hi all

This is more about the skills assessment. I have a Btech degree and submitting my final dissertation for a Master of Science this year (so graduation is in 2015). Does anybody know if there is a signficant difference between the points that I will receive for a Btech degree and MSc? I would prefer to go ahead with all the assessments, but not sure if this might return a negative result? All my tertiary qualifications were in English and I have 14 years relevant work experience.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi KarinvdWalt.

I am not a specialist though here goes my 2 cents.

The points allocation for ANY degree under a PhD, is exactly the same. What that means, is that you do not get additional points for the Masters. You score the same points as you would for a Bachelors degree.

Secondly, just remember you might have 14 years of work experience. They (assessing authority) will only credit you for the work experience AFTER the point, they feel you have satisfied their educational requirements. So, they may only credit you for your work experience after you obtained your B.Tech.

Even if you receive a negative assessment, read their reasons very carefully. If they have missed a point, or you feel strongly that you satisfied their criteria, appeal :boxing: . I did that, with success :ilikeit: .

I hope that this helps.
