But really putting the boot in, my husband's professional qualifications are back on the skilled list, but he can't get any of the jobs because of his residency status BUT they will offer working visas!!!
It could be something they have under their legislation or agreement (whatever they follow to hire people). Where I work they can not accept anyone who isn't at citizen at time of commencement of employment.

I am curious though to if all states follow the same rules as I know they follow different legislation so maybe the rules differ state to state?

That sucks about your husband's job being on the skilled list now. Is there really a shortage? Only reason I ask is accountants are on that list and from what I have been told there is not a shortage and they are struggling to work an accounting job.

When is your husband's eligibility date?

Oh god really? I've sent in two lots of additional evidence! I asked Mark if that was okay and he said it was a great idea but that was s good few months ago now! I really hope they don't push the dates back, or are you just talking about 801 not 820?

801 only. Someone posted here recently that they sent in additional evidence by post and then rang up to check that they got it and was told the processing time starts from when they submitted the additional evidence. With our experience of incorrect information from call centre operators I don't know how much truth there is about this, which is why I suggested to ask Mark.

Gosh they do like to make it as difficult as possible don't they! Thank god it's not 820. I sent in proof of our newly acquired credit card, and joint pet insurance and joint health insurance only a few weeks ago now, couldn't beat starting from scratch after 11 months waiting! I'll be sure to bear that in mind when my 801 time comes, thanks!

Our 801 date is 25 June 2016 so only another 6 months. We have tonnes of evidence already and intend to put it all in in one hit and our statements from friends will probably include our dog obedience school!

As for the skilled list, he is professionally a research biologist that is on the supplementary list for states, and which we are aware is a niche job and one that is highly unlikely to come up at any time soon, if ever (although the botanic gardens in Sydney have had openings for someone with his qualifications but again residency issues apply). But the big one is ecology management which is basically the work that he is doing now as a volunteer and yes, there are openings in that area. But each position has different residency qualifications and to be honest I don't think the employers know exactly what residency/working rights mean. As soon as they hear an accent, and that can be a UK accent as well as any other accent, they immediately start wanting evidence of residency. Honestly think employers and HR people need to get over themselves and stop trying to nit pick and just put the right person in for the job rather than falling back into Australian employment nepotism.

Hi Mish,

Thanks for your reply. My partner is originally from S. Korea.

I feel so disheartened right now.

Which country is the applicant originally from?

There is a link to a spreadsheet on the first page. We have a rejection tab but I think it may only have 1. From memory there have been 4 this year. Even the migration agrents have said they are seeing more rejections now

It doesn't just end with the case officer. They also have a senior officer who approves their decision before it is issued. The approving officer may have 10 case officers they need to approve decisions for. The approving officer usually doesn't do just case approvals but also offers advice for cases that are complex. Decisions can be issued any time of the day it is whenever the approver approves it and they can finalise it.

Just remember they are usually holding more than 1 case a day. I would expect it would be around the 20 mark.

I agree but at the same time I can see where they are coming from. If they hire a TR and they spend alot of time and money training them and their visa gets rejected they need to start all over again so thry prefer to play it safe.

I am curious to what a NZ citizen would be classed as in the job market. I am thinking along the lines of a permanent resident since they can stay as long as they want.

I am starting to get crazy annoyed now.

Im happy for people who have received quick grants but some of their eligibility dates were after mine i am currently 6 months 18 days and im from UK ( low risk) but yet someone a few weeks ago got their grant before mine and they were from a high risk country and the date was 2 weeks after mine ( they are on a different site) i get that some cases differ but how is it we are not allowed to lie to immigration but they are more than ok to lie to us....

We process cases in order.... LIE

they are going to be on christmas holidays soon so looks like im gonna be in the 8+ months waiting.

And i agree with others i have been turned away from Jobs because im not PR so it does affect life
