Hello, Mark!

Please help me because I am worried about my further steps in the Assessment.
First of all, I was assessed as an Accountant General, for now I need to do an employment assessment.

I am analyzing the list of tasks for 2211 ACCOUNTANTS and some duties like assisting in formulating budgetary and accounting policies
preparing financial statements, preparing taxation returns and so on really coincide with my actual duties. But does it mean that I could be assessed as a 221113 Taxation Accountant instead of a General? I am worries because this code has extra criteria nowadays and I hope to stay General after all.
Thank you in advance!
Waiting for your answer patiently.

Hi Mark
i recently did my Citizenship test and as you know you have to supply all the documents that you supplied for your application. The guy who checked mine was a bit strange. It took him nearly 20 mins to log on and then couldn't find my application and when he did he refused my Birth Certificate as it was a CERTIFIED Copy !!!!! He also queried if my wife, who was sat next to me, was actually my wife,even though she had her own documents on her and knew one of the other Interviewers. He then said i need a Police Check from UK to verify who i am. He then said i could sit my test then laughed !!!!.
So the crux of it all is that
1 I have been in Oz for 6 Years and never left
2 All previous Police checks for 457 and PR are clean
3 My passport has not been used at all in that time
4 He asked for one because in his words I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE !!!

Passport,Birth Cert, Form 1195,Marriage Cert,Aussie drivers licence ALL supplied
Advice please anyone

Hi Mark. I’m doing a 820/801 partner visa. I was just granted my bridge visa. What is next? Do I apply for my health card and tax ID number or do they come automatically? When do I do the fbi check and police check? Do I do the Form 80 immediately? How do I upload Form 80? If I change to jpeg it will be many files long and I’ve already used up 45 of my 60 files. When do you think I will get a case worker? Will they even look at my application in the next 12 months? Lots of questions. Sorry.��

visa 820

The situation is: we firstly met each other in the Internet and communicated in skype via messages and online video almost every day, after 6 months he visited me for two weeks. Then we didn't see each other again for a half year (as I graduated my University), but we communicated every single day...I came to Australia on a student visa and lived together for a half year. Right now we want to apply for a partnership visa 820, but the problem is when we firstly met each other in real life and when my visa expired, there is a gap in 2 weeks for the whole 12 months. Altogether we communicated with each other about 1,5 years and have messages, photos and videos as evidence.
What can we do in this situation? we want to apply on-shore.
Thank you!

Need guidance in choosing the correct ANZSCO code

Hi Mark,

This is my first ever post on this forum, so please excuse if this question was already asked and answered

My wife is planning to apply for subclass 189 visa and has all the documents required for ACS ready but is confused about which ANZSCO Code to nominate herself for.

She is currently working in India as a Systems Engineer but her roles and responsibilities match with that of "262113 - Systems Administrator" under the Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations list.

My question here is if it is okay for her to choose the Systems Administrator code while all her other documents state her designation as "Systems Engineer" or is it fine to align her profile with the code - 263111 - Computer Network and Systems Engineer?

Your response will be greatly appreciated and help us choose the right option. Thank you!

Hello Mark,

I have a question regarding form 47A. I have two adult children from a previous marriage that are over the age of 23 years old. They are living on their own, are completely financially independent and not immigrating with me to Australia. Do I still require them to complete the form 47A?

Hi Mark,

My husband and I lodged our 309 and wondering what would be the best route to take.

1. Apply for another tourist visa so I can be with him while waiting for the 309 decision.

2. Stay in the Philippines and wait for the 309 decision.

3. Use the remaining time I have for my current tourist visa which will expire on June 2018

DOL: June 7, 2017
Medical done: 2nd week of June 2017
Additional requirements requested: September 2017, which we were able to supply 2 weeks after.

Since then, I have not heard anything. After my 309 was lodged our agent also lodged a tourist visa so I can be with my husband while waiting for the 309 decision. In 3 days time, the tourist visa has been granted. It was a multiple entry visa valid for a year with 3 months maximum stay.

I left Philippines on June 29, 2017, I exit Australia before I even reach the 3rd month. Now, I am back in the Philippines and feeling very anxious of not knowing what to do and being away from my husband. I am tossing between going back to Australia on the same tourist visa which will expire on June this year or wait till the decision for the 309 comes out. We are currently on our 9th month of waiting. Should I just apply for a new tourist visa so I can be with my husband?

Your thoughts will be highly appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.

Dear Mark,

Need your expert opinion for following query: I submitted my application (For myself along with my family) couple of months ago. Last week, i received email from case officer to provide additional medical report for my son. I am from Pakistan, and because of my job here in Saudi Arabia, I lodged my application from Saudi Arabia. I need your suggestion for following queries:

1. Currently my family is visiting their home country, so do i need to inform Australian Immigration about my family's visit? If so, which form shall be used? And shall i use "Change in circumstance" option to inform Australian Immigration?
2. Medical of my son was done in Saudi Arabia, because currently he is in Pakistan, so i am planning to submit required medical report through approved medical clinics in Pakistan. Will it have any negative effect? or Could this cause any complication e.g. failure to update Australian Immigration at the time of their travel or requirement of latest police certificate etc...

Thanks in advance.
