Dear Friends,

I am a pharmacist from Egypt, working in the marketing department in a pharmaceutical company

My story started year ago when a friend of mine told me that she is applying for Australia immigration and because i was looking actively for an opportunity to work and live abroad she advised me to give it a try..and i was like why not!! So I started working on my visa since August 2012 with the agent she was working with

Below are steps i went through and result of each: :drama:

1. The agent advised to apply me as pharmaceutical sales rep in south Australia because it was available and open there
2. Prepared all required documents for skills assessment
3. Documents was submitted to Vitassess to be assessed as Pharmaceutical sales rep in Dec 2012
4. Got negative response because my experience letters was toward marketing rather than sales in May 2012
5. Resubmitted my documents again for Vitassess but this time as Marketing specialist in ACT in May 2012
6. Marketing specialist was removed from the list in August 2013
7. Got positive response from Vitassess as Marketing specialist this time in September 2013

8. Now my agent is advising me to resubmit an explanatory letter for Vetassess describing that although i am working in the marketing department but my core job is sales and clarify what i do exactly from the sales side. If Vetassess gave me a positive response on skills as sales rep, my agent will lodge my visa as sales rep in ACT because it is open there

Now i am very frustrated and feel like i have reached a dead end!! and there is no way for me especially that each step i went through is very costy and yet nothing clear :ballchain:

Do i still have a chance to get the immigration visa or nothing else can be done in my case?

Do you advise me to go with my agent advise and do this explanatory letter or it is not gonna work with Vitassess? :crazy:

Your advises is highly appreciated

Emma

if its closed, there is a pre verification process using which you can still apply for ACT> surprised that your agent didnt tell you about it

you need your CV
5 openings in ACT ( which doesnt need you to be a citizen or which doesnt need security clearance)
a committment to canberra statement

with this, you can mail them and if they approve, you can go ahead and file a nomination for the same.

All the best

I am going to send her immediately and hopefully it works
