Our journey to Sydney - starting 5 December 2018

Recommended Posts

I used this forum quite extensively to do research on Australian immigration and hopefully this topic gives back to the community!

 

Previous posts outlined our journey to day, but today was a critical milestone in our process. In short, I am in the process of applying for a 482 / TSS visa and based on current timeliness, expect to fly out to Sydney towards the end of March 2019. During the same time, we are also trying out for the 189/190 PR visas. This was like a dark cloud hanging over my head as the admin involved, various supporting evidence for English and skills as well as CA's requiring 80+ points, made it a daunting task!

 

My partner and I sat for the PTE Academic test yesterday (4/12/'18) and received our scores this morning (very fast!!) and today really feels like I made a lot of progress. Our skills assessments have been requested and we can submit our EOIs as soon as we get this back. I will update this treat as and when we make progress.

 

Oh, on the PTE - after messing up one describe image and butchering a repeat sentence, I received 90 for all areas and can claim the much required 20 points for superior English!

Hi MJO,

 

I think I am only a week or two ahead of you in the TSS process.  Wrote my exam last week and doing medicals tomorrow.  

I don't have a date as yet, but think I am going to move to Sydney beginning Feb!  I have a job waiting on the other side, hence the rush.

Just waiting for visa approval to book flights and try find accommodation.  

 

Just a word of advice... if you know your dates, book temp/ AIRBNB accommodation asap!  Because I don't have dates yet, I can't book, and when I checked on Airbnb, only the really expensive places have availability!

Thanks, good suggestion.

 

Luckily I have a consultant assisting with this and upon arrived they will assist in a permanent place.
