Default Settling in Australia

Dear All,

I have 5+ years of experience working in I.T as Software Engg in India. My technology is Java\ J2ee and domain is banking.

I had taken IELTS around in 2010 and had scored 7.5 in GT. I can take the paper again as the older one will expire this month end.

I want to work and settle in Australia. Kindly advice me how can I get residentship there. and how should i apply.
Also i heard that rules are changing this year in July. Will that make the process easier or more tough?

I had approached consultants here last year. They wasted my 1 year. Told me that they have applied for NSW state sponsorship on my behalf, but had done nothing. So i want to do everything myself this time as i don't want to waste any more time.

Kindly suggest all possible legal ways, visas to settle there.

Thanks in advance,
Megha

Hi megha

Do first thing first ,get your skill assessed by your assessing authority and in your case I suppose it is ACS

Give your ILETS again and make a target to score more than 7 in each module

If you get this both things done then apply EOI ( in your case it certain as from 1 July rules are changing )

After EOI wait for the invitation and if received then you have say approximate 60 days to file for actual thing I.e PR or provisional visa ( depends on your points)

Skills assessment from ACS is valid for 2 years, you may not need it if you have enough points.

To start with:

1. Identify the visa type you want to apply for.
2. See if you are getting enough points to apply for this visa.
3. If not enough points, you may want to reapply for skills assessment as one gets more points for more experience.

EOI is a new method to apply your visa which stands for "Expression of Interst" and it is a part of SKILL SET rule which becomes effective after June 30 -12

Under this visa ,one have to first submit EOI and if get invitation from Aussie govt then only eligible for further process.

So in sort from July 12 .....Ball would be in their court (Australian Govt.) to call you but dont worry they still require many skilled migrants to fill gap in their economy so only thing you can do right now is to score maximum points to secure your invitation.
