A stupid And Simple Plan To Migrate To Australia


this forum is wonderful and I get some real good information. After going through some sticky threads in the forum I assembled some parts and made a stupid and simple plan for migrating to australia. But I would appreciate other members to go through the stuff so as I can be corrected in case I missed or mistook something in the arranging.

An Introduction

I am a software engineer working at Microsoft,US since July 2008. I work in programming with c# and web technologies. I am from India but came to US for graduate studies in 2005. I had obtained a MS in Computer Engineering from a University here in 2 years. I am 29 years of age.

Interest And Plans For Australia

I was intruiged about the land and the diverse geography and animals found here. I am too fond of cricket and quite infamous for supporting the aussies even against my country. I would like to settle in Australia and lead a dynamic and cool lifestyle. US indeed offers a great learning platform for the beginners and useful experience. I want to continue my work here for two more years so that I have a good 4 years work experience. After that, I will love to migrate to Australia and I am sure the US experience will help me get good job in Australia . I am also planning an MBA in future and Aus Universities are quite good I heard.

The Possible RoadMap
Assuming the immigration policy doesnt change much in coming years, I believe I can use the following roadmap
*Try for a job in Australia using websites from end of 2010
*Appear for the IELTS and get a good score in 2011 middle
*Hopefully find a job before 2011 ends(I am 31 then)
*The employers will work for a worker visa for me to migrate into Australia
*Work 2 years there so that I have 24 months work experience in Australia and 4 years in US
*File for a permanent residency as a skilled independent worker using an agency

*Since I will be
-under 45 years of age(33)
-having post graduate degree in engineering(from US)
-an IELTS score as well as 2 years student and 5 years working experience in english speaking countries
-5 years of relevant job experience(3.5 in US,2 in Aus)

my case will be strong enough to me expect getting the permanent residency approved within a year from then (unless the embassy guys have some problem)


> Can I use the term Electrical Engineer to describe my education although I have earned a Masters and Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering while fling permanent residency application?
> Do I need a big bank balance in order to apply for Visa as well as later for permanent residency?
>Am I mistaken anywhere in the assumptions I made?
>Does the permanent residency success depends on the state you work in?
>Am I overestimating anything, especially the time requirements I am thinking?

If you have not qualified in Electrical engineering I'd not be thinking of using that as your nominated occupation.
Any engineering qualifications have to be assessed by the IEA.
Engineering degrees are usually a three if not four year course and you could get a better idea on what to apply as @ A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information

Perhaps Computer Technology is a more appropriate field.

You do not need a huge bank account for immigrating but there are obvious costs such as visa fees etc. and travel costs and then covering living expenses until you do start work and $1000/w ought to be allowed for latter.

Different states will not have a direct impact re getting PR but there are state nominations that can mean less points are required.
Have a look at the 176 - Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration

And even though you may elect to come to Australia via an employer sponsor visa, unless you study in Australia for two years, you'll still have to apply for an offshore visa and for one to be granted, you'll need to travel abroad for 5 business days.

In coming in on a temporary employer sponsored visa you may want to consider looking at an ES PR visa as another option.

I had the link where it shows teh cost for visas from DIMIA site but cant post it because I am not "active" member. Google out "DIAC fees and charges" and follow the links to your suitable visa.

As for applying as electrical, I would go for computing professional if I were you given thats your qualification. Electrical would have been good because its in CSL but so is Computing Professionals so you shouldnt be disadvantaged.

For your friend to immigrate on a skilled basis, direct them to Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration

There is a link at the top of that page to What's New information which includes reference to changes proposed to occur mid this year and a greater emphasis on english ability so if your friends ability is basic, they will probably be well advised to do an english language course and supplement that with as much exposure to english as possible through watching/listening/reading/speaking if possible and there may be " english speaking social groups they can join " all prior to seeking IELTS rating.

In addition to that of course, qualifications need to be assessed by Engineers Australia.

The other way that could be considered is via employer sponsorship and details via Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration
There is however some difficulty to find an employer from overseas and employers whilst looking for people with experience will also want to know that qualifications are approved by EA and that your friend has a good standard of english.

You'll find for either of those visa options there is detailed eligibility and application information complete with a Checklist making it relatively easy to follow if a bit time consuming.

Your friend needs to initially spend some considerable time studying the EA web site and he'll find there what they require and he should be able to do a self assessment on whether his qualifications will be suitable.
He can get the EA site from A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information
