Trying to hitch a ride to Australia

Hi All, been looking through this forum and its been most useful.

My wife and i are in the process of processing the process to get into OZ.

How we are getting there - 189 Visa as a Pre-Primary Teacher.

Process so far - 1. IELTS Test, Academic for the AITSL, and general to get 8 Across the board for Visa points. (15 for 7's and 20 for 8's ) Waiting for General test results

2. AITSL recieved today, B.Ed degree granted ( Studied at Wits, Foundation & Early childhood dev )

Just waiting for that pesky IELTS and then the EOI here we come !!

So far the process is pretty straight forward, the only issue we had was verifying documents for the AITSL, they have to have the commissioner of oaths stamp, they didn't accept the police stamp thingy.

So in theory when we get the 8's for the IELTS we will have 65 points, so in the meantime were getting all the documents required to apply for the visa.

All the best with the process - before you know it you will be submitting that EOI and then the application itself!
