    I would like to ask if what agency/consultancy did you apply? I've heard from Enhance, that there is no need for the applicants to go to hongkong. I'm also in a dilemma because I'm both qualified in both QSW and QNP, I prefer the QNP but they told me that QSW is a better option. I wanted the QNP simply because I can work there as a nurse and not some other jobs.

    hello..Yes I'm from Enhance as well...I just made my final decision a while ago. If it's true that there's no need to go to hongkong for an interview then that is really great... It saves us from spending... however the need to take the TEFAQ is greatly advised so as to be assured to get the needed points and that is 55 if I'm not mistaken... Although I'm studying french in Alliance Francaises du cebu in my 2nd module... I'm not confident as of I can make it... despite the fact that I only need 2 points I'm still worried... I couldn't risk 15k knowing that I'll miserably fail...
    so perhaps i have to stick with QNP ... nonetheless when i read the posts here it makes me shiver to death about the uncertainties and the difficulties I have to go through once I get there (God willing)...
    hope to hear from you soon....

    But charting is in French and it's a legal document, so fluency IS required.

    I'm about to apply in Enhance, probably this week. I think I will go with the QSW since it's easier to be an immigrant through this program rather than the QNP, it will take a lot of years. By the way, regarding the TEFAQ, do you know the schedule of exams for next year in Cebu? Since I'm not from there..Thanks.

    @ agnes_blush27

    If you're option is the QSW, you will need the French test, TEFAQ, which comprises the speaking and listening tests. However, if you opted for the QNP, the French exam after you took the board exam in Quebec is similar with the ielts with reading, speaking, writing, and listening (based from what I've read in other forums and here as well).

    You are absolutely right that the QNP program is much difficult compared to QSW if given ample time i would have shifted program, nonetheless I'm not practicing my profession as a nurse for the time being... my agent advised me to hasten up my application for my working experience might not be valid anymore... (working experience validity is like 5 years ... that's what they told me) Well personally I myself thought that I have forgotten a lot... this might not be good for me....with this time constrain... i opted with QNP.. however I will still apply for the QSW God willing once I get there... perhaps I can get an added points...so bonne chance to all of us ...

    I'll try to ask alliance as to when will be the next exam... or better yet try to check their site academic calendar is available...

    hi. Im a nurse volunteer for almost a year now.

    I attended an orientation by Enhance Visa Services... Of all the programs that they were catering, i was definitely interested to apply for the QNP, since it doesnt require an IELTS/PAID EXPERIENCE. So i toldthem of my interest to apply for QNP, but they told me that since i only lack 2 points to reach the 55-point requirement for the QSW ,i can apply for that program too. and i can fill up the additional two points by taking french lessons and taking the TEFaq. So, ive decided to go for the QSW.

    but after ive read the blog about QSW. im beginning to question if i can still go for this program knowing that im a volunteer nurse. and ive heard that during the interview in hongkong the IO would ask for payslips and ITR...which i cant provide.

    I need your advice coz i'm really confused right now. thanks!

    I've been also wondering the same thing since I am also a volunteer nurse but they told me that volunteer work is just okay. I am not sure about the hongkong thing, but from what I've read, it depends if they are going to invite you for an interview or not.

    They will tell you what you want to know at the end of the day if you are caught and it is illegal for you to be doing it then you are looking at deportation and a ban that could be from a few years to life

    If any doubts check with a immigration lawyer that has experience in this area

    that's what they've told me too. the idea of being interviewed in the embassy is really nerve racking!
    i really hope that someone in Canada who applied for the QSW would share their experience.

    good luck to all of us!

    Almost everyone gets interviewed in Hong Kong (if you're from the Philippines). You'd only be exempted from the interview if you've proven that you're fluent in french and have submitted proof of your language proficiency.

    I've been interviewed in Hong Kong and have seen other Filipinos also invited for the interview. Good luck!
