    Hi! I will probably avail the accommodation but i'm still waiting for my consultancy firm for any advice. They will also tell me what visa to take.. See you in Perth!
    What agency are you in? I'm from ams. How did you pay your enrollment fee? I cant pay through the payonline link because i don't have the invoice number yet.. I read here it is emailed seperately.

    When did you receive your invoice because i got the offer letter email but not the invoice email yet. Did you wait for the invoice email before paying the enrollment fee?

    did you mean the online interview? Its a 20-item set of multiple choice type of questions that you have to answer within 10 minutes. You have two chances to pass the interview. The questions would depend on what field/specialization you tick. One mandaiotory subject is General nursing. You have options like medical, surgical, pediatric, cardiac, renal, emergency, icu, etc. The questions range from nursing functions, medications (ex. side effects), health teachings, etc. They are practical and much like the set of questions for board exams/nclex format.

    I suggest that you do some practice tests online to refresh your mind, focusing on what you specialize so that it would be easier for you. If you have been into practice for many years, it can help you also.

    Good luck!

    I also have this concern regarding the type of visa that will be given when undertaking the bridging program, because i've read a lot from this thread that most of the time, a short-stay visa is given which means that you will have to stay in Aussie for just 3 months to complete the course, then you will have to go back to your home country once your done with it. So, does it mean that registration to AHPRA (after the bridging course) is to be done in your home country?

    3 months stay in australia but multiple entry valid for a year. So you can go back to aussie after you exit. But it depends. Too bad Some were granted with single entry visa.
