I'll try to be cuter the next time, just for you.

Why is making a comment vis-a-vis lowering standards for medical entrants into a country unhelpful, especially following the contribution by the recruiter/immigration agent. Do you think he is working for the betterment of society?
What criteria do you use when evaluating if one comment is unhelpful and another is helpful. Is tangental contribution now not allowed anymore?

There's a lot of websites that will help you for this concern. Use google for the meantime and and key-in the word "application for immigrant visa in australia"

The fastest time to be an immigrant is 1 year. All you have to do is search for the requirements needed, comply all those and submit it to australian embassy for their evaluation. You will receive the result of assessment after 1 month or 2. Next step is to take Ielts exam, if you're confident enough to pass this exam you can lodge now for visa for the assessment of DIAC. The immigrant application is in a pointing system basis. I feel so lazy to search for the site right now but if you cant find it and you still need my help just PM me and Il search it for you in the next few days. you can also go to expat forum in australia to read the helpful infos and tactics.

goodluck!

Are you working in Singapore? Why not search for Migration Agents to help you. Anyway, just a suggestion.
Best regards,
Esther

Esther was right. If you're not sure, hiring an migration agent would be a good idea after all, even though it might cost you a bit.

...or you can go there to study to become hairdresser or nurse and see how do you like Australia as general.

a qualified eastern-european physician is not necessarily qualified in the "west". i don't know where you got your medical degree from, but this is normal for many countries around the world, especially if the degree in question is "foreign" (eg, philippines, india, bulgaria...).

Aus/NZ had no problems accepting my american medical degree (i'm here right now!). in fact there's a giant demand for doctors down this part of the world because local ones keep running away to UK/USA.

you are better off using an agent to help you out with the paperwork and job search. yes, it won't be free, but you're gonna have an easier time.

lastly, please don't expect registration to be an overnight affair coz such things take time.

Criteria to migrate to Oz

Postby Deanna1999 » Fri, 02 Oct 2009 3:56 am

hi there,

i know this is a real old thread...just wondering if anyone knows the latest criteria to migrate to australia? Thought I might as well ask here rather than start on a new thread - since that's the original topic of choice...

any info will be useful...

Thanks :D

This forum is about Singapore, not Australian immigration. You might want to start your research at www.immi.gov.au (google: immigration Australia)

Then again, your chances might not be that high if you can't figure out the above by yourself.

Very true SMS. I am not surprised that some of our new forum members get their PR rejected and it is the right thing to be honest. If you can't prepare properly and do you research first then you are certainly not skilled or able to contribute no matter what fancy degree you have.
