Hey thank you for sharing it!

If you're on a browser, you can click on the username of people, which will take you to their profile / search through their post history.

You can also do advanced searches with key words and for a specific username if their post count is really high.

And then each post has a permanent link, which I pasted

Thanks Swethaganga and PrettyIsotonic !

Can we submit the SD on a plain paper or do we need to get it endorsed in presence of some witness?

I will strongly recommend to upload pte results rather that collecting documents from universities regarding English medium study. PTE overall 30 required.

Can someone inform me how much is the waiting period usually after submitting pte results?
Hi Rosun

Can you plz share your complete details regarding spouse Functional English docs u submitted?

Since we are on mobile, appreciate if you can list it down even if it's in your signature, as it's not visible on Mobile app.

Thanks!

Hi, Did they mention any reason ? Was any information missing in the letters you got from university ? I heard the number of years has to be clearly mentioned.

Hi Rosun,

There is no specific timelines on the waiting period but the average wit time is 2 -3 months which depends on the CO. I was also contacted for the same reason by CO on Nov 23 and I am still expecting my grant! So officially your wait time starts. All the very best!

Hi All,

I’ve been reading 189 thread (luckily I found this thread) for about 1 month and also visited some of the Mara agents to understand more about the 189 visa. I like this thread as it shared all the positive energy around, which is very healthy for current or new applicant.
Now, I’ll be preparing to start the application for 189 visa.

From what I’ve understand (correct me if I’m wrong), process usually will be skill assessment and English test first followed by EOI.

Let’s take it step by step.
1) age(30 years old) - 30 points
2) education (degree) - 15 points
3) English test (yet to take) - 20 points
4) experience (3 years from date of certification) - 5 points
Estimated about 70points & Anzsco 233311

My question is, to skill assess by engineering Australia will it be a lengthy process? I do have my payslip, promotions letter, appraisal and increment letter. What other document and additional stuff before I proceed.
Will a Mara agent improve the processing time in terms of handling and communication to relavent agencies?

Cheers

Welcome to the forum

Engineering Australia has a fast-track option, where you can pay extra to be processed faster. You might be able to get a current sense of processing time from the EA thread here:
https://www.expatforum.com/expats/au...ime-frame.html

In terms of what you need to provide, it depends on what pathway you are choosing (e.g. Accord or CDR) - and all that info is in the MSA booklet:
https://www.engineersaustralia.org.a...2003102018.pdf

You don't have to get your employment episodes assessed (most other assessing authorities automatically do this) - but if you wish to (I would) you can opt to get the RSEA done too (see the MSA booklet for details of what you need).

A MARA agent will not directly reduce your processing times, but a reputable and experienced one will be able to advice and assist regarding how to handle the skills assessment requirements and their requests / department requirements and their requests etc. as you point out.

For English points - there seems to be consensus that the PTE is easier to prepare for, and there is a great thread with heaps of tips n tricks:
https://www.expatforum.com/expats/au...-pte-exam.html

Edit:

Current processing times from the EA website is here:
https://www.engineersaustralia.org.a...lls-Assessment
