Hi yes nurse,

There is a lot of information on the website and not just about the immigration regulations, some general info too to help you out with learning a bit about life in Australia.

But for the immigration application, start with having a read at Doctors and Nurses - Workers - Visas & Immigration

It may redirect you back to the central GSM site - What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration

and you should also have a read of http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...processing.pdf re processing priorities.

Essentially, you need to have nursing qualifications approved by the Nurses Federation or whichever organisation does it and you will find their web site listed at rear on - What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration

Once you have qualifications approved, to save having to wait too long for a visa application approval you could start contacting the various state health departments to see if they are sponsoring nurses or know of any hospitals doing that and you may be able to apply for an Employer Sponsored Visa.
Skilled Workers Permanent Visa Options- Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration

When you use the website, you'll find under any visa, sections on eligibility and "applying for the visa" and so read the sections carefully, including all the links and make use of the Checklist that you'll find a link for in the applying section.

Yep, it is a fair bit of effort in reading, decision making, collating info and
getting an application in but being more than buying a ticket on the MRT or even an airline you need to lnow what you have to do and only way of finding out is to put your nose to the grinding wheel or decide on using an immigration agent and that can be expensive.

Between yourself and husband as a technician, you ought to be able to work your way through it just a step at a time.

I'll move this thread to the Visas and Immigration section.
