Thanks and Regards,

The landlord wants surety that you will be able to make the rental payments on time and will not wreck the place
That history takes time to build so initially you may have to settle for B grade properties which no one wants to rent till you have this history
For the rentals surety you can offer to pay a substantial rent in advance to sweeten your application
But still Be prepared to get a lot of rejection for the properties you apply for

I am a landlord myself, so I know I would not like to rent my house to a new immigrant who has no prior references , unless I am desperate to rent it out

Cheers

Hi NB

What is priority occupation list for 190 NSW which is recently released. My sister is HR manger with 5 years of experience. Can she apply?

I guess last year Human Resource manager occupation was not listed, but this is it is available with low priority.
Is it worth applying and is the rules same as 189.

Appreciate ur help mate.

Thanks and Cheers

You loose nothing in lodging an EOI in Skillselect if you are willing to live and work in nsw for 2 years

The rules are not the same as 189
Nsw can choose any applicant they like irrespective of when they applied or how many points they have

Cheers

Hi NB,

It's regarding Visa documents submission, there is a designation mismatch in between Offer letter and experience letter. In offer letter it is "abc" and in experience letter it is "xyz", i didn't get any promotion during my tenure. I did ACS with "xyz" as my designation. So, will it create any confusion if I submit both the letters? I approached my company to provide revised offer letter but they denied.

Please suggest.

What about all other evidence ?
Passport, tax, bank statement, income tax etc.. what name do they show ?
Why this discrepancy in offer letter ?

Cheers

There is no problem with rest of the documents.

Not sure why there is discrepancy in offer letter.

Hello NB,

I have few questions with regards to Medicare Levy and Medicare Levy Surcharge.

1) Are they applicable from the day we are granted Medicare Card? Or Do we get 1 year window from the date we are granted Medicare card in Australia before we are subject to Medicare Levy and Medicare Levy Surcharge?

2) Can we take Private Health Insurance to get exemption from both Medicare Levy and Medicare Levy Surcharge?

3) Are there any specific guidelines on the Private Insurance that we must buy to seek exemption?

4) Which is the cheapest Private Insurance that we can buy if the intention is just to avoid Medicare Levy and Medicare Levy Surcharge?

Thanks a lot for your inputs in this regard.

1. There is no window
The day you become eligible to apply for a Medicare card, you become liable to pay the medical levy and surcharge, irrespective of whether you apply for the Medicare card or not

2. you cannot get exemption from Medical levy, only the medical levy surcharge

3. You can check the health insurance you are proposing to buy, if it is MLS compliant or not

4. HCF is the cheapest as far as I know. But itís a useless piece of paper in case of a real emergency. It just saves MLS and has been pulled up by regulatory authorities several times

I hope you are aware that MLS kicks in only after you cross 90,000 aud individually or 180,000 aud as a couple

Cheers

Thanks NB. So if I understand correctly, if our taxable family income is 200,000 we will be subject to Medicare Levy Surcharge of 1.25% (AUD 2500) per annum. So its better to go for Private insurance where the premium is less than 2500 per annum !

Can we go for private health insurance only for Hospital cover and not any Extra cover?

Yes

But I went for a really good insurance as I believed that even if spend a few hundred dollars more, I have an insurance I can really rely on
I bought from Phoenix

I hope you are aware that the longer you delay the private health insurance, the higher the premium you pay as they add a penalty

You can take your own decision

Cheers
