Hi Everyone,

Am just wondering has anyone applied for the Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 136) visa on their own without the help of a migration company? £2000 is what most are quoting excluding all the other associated fees. Am just wondering is its viable to apply for this off my own back and save myself £2000.

I would be great to hear from other people who have applied for this visa on their own.

Thanks everyone

Hi

Is there any reason why you want to apply under subclass 136? If you're an RN its easy and quick to apply under subclass 457, most employers will sponser you. When you get there its just a formality to apply for 121/856. All allow your family to accompany you. Good luck ;)

Hi Tanvi Tusti, I wanted to apply under 136 because, I dont want to be stuck in a job in Auz that I dont like as I have of many nursing getting to Auz and not liking their placement. Also if I get my perm resident now, means its over and done with. As for family I am going on my own. Plus its not any cheaper to apply for th perm resident in Auz and I am looking to go to Auz a year down the line. Your comments please.

We are doing it ourselves to save money. My other half is a RN and we won't be making the move for about 2 years until our son finishes Uni though she is 45 next August (2008) so the paperwork neds to be with DIAC before then. There are a few other things you could do to save money as well if you don't need to go to Oz quickly and can accept a further 10 week delay. If you get a Full Skills Assessment done by the ANMC they will charge you AU$690. You will then need to register with a State Nursing Board to practice that will set you back a further AU$200 (average). If you Register with a State Nursing Board first and then once registered do a Modified Skills Assessment with the ANMC it will cost you less than AU$300 with the ANMC on top of the State Nursing Board Charge. Overall savings up to AU$500 dedpending on which Nursing Board you choose. I have found SA to be the cheapest but worth shopping around. At the end of the day you are trying to get the 136 at the cheapest rate. Just because you have registered in one State doesn't mean that you have to work there. Once registered you can move aound by re-registering as an onshore Nurse, they all recognise each others Boards

I did it myself for the same reason as you, did'nt want to be stuck in a rotten job and unable to leave and end up visa less. I registered in nsw which took two weeks, then applied for modified skills assessment, again about two weeks, then applied for visa, posted in feb, medical in may, visa in passport first week of july, and have been in oz for nearly two years. Whilst you can go the sponsored route be aware that there have been long delays in getting residency, not surprising really as you are already in the country working! You can also apply for residency before you leave, then go out on a sponsorship/working holiday visa while your PR is being processed, the only problem is that you will have to leave the country the day your PR is granted, but a quick trip to NZ is not really a hardship.
