Smile Any good Agent /Consultant in Pune,India for PR processing

1.My current job is the Australian Critical list or MODL list.I'm from Pune,India.I'm looking for any of the agents who can help me with the immigration.So far I have come across "vahista" .They are estimating 1 yr of time and 2 Lakh indian rupees fee for the processing.On the immi website the fees mentioned are 2575$ so I think 2 L is reasonable amount and they are not over charging.If any of you who have come aus through offshore PR , can you please check with them which agent/consultancy they processed with its good to know any reliable name.
2.My skill set is UNIX,Linux,Perl,Shell Script,PLSQL.How is the IT job market for these skills. ? I can see many jobs at seek but not sure if they are permanent jobs.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Ajay

Hi Ajay,

I am not sure who told you that your current job is on the Australian Critical Shortage List and MODL but you have been misinformed.

The MODL was revoked in February and the CSL in July, therefore neither of them apply to new offshore Skilled Migration applications anymore.

Your occupation needs to be on the new Skilled Occupation List which was released in July.

I would advise that you obtain advice from a reputable and REGISTERED Australian Migration Professional.

Thanks for the reply.I checked new Skilled Occupation List which was released in July.My occupation (Software Engineer) is there.Actually this occupation contains wide range of skill sets.Which skills are most required / sutaible is not mentioned anywhere on the immgration site.

Any inputs / comments.

You could have a look @ A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information and the ACS site

From references in your first post it seems you may have glimpsed at the Immi site but you ought to have a more thorough reading and re-reading so as you fully comprehend and that will serve you very well as to what to expect in interface with an agent.
Start @ Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration and also look at pertinent links on the What's New linked page.
As to an agent, I'd feel you would be much better serviced dealing with a MARA registered one rather than one linked to one for that will just have potential for another interface and may detract from best communication.

Thanks Wanderer I read re-read immi content for subclass 175 and 176.Still some questions in mind.

1.Other than Sponsorship and 2 yrs stay in one particular stay what are other differences between subclass 175 and 176 ?
2.If one particuar state sponsors me for 176 its must to work in that particualr state for 2 years but,is it also ture in case I want to study for 2 yrs ?
3.From the citizenship standpoint both 175 and 176 are same ? after living 4 yrs in aus I can apply for citizenship ?
5.I also checked on immi and ACS sites for details on "Software Engineer" occupation .It has all the day today duties which are relavent to my current job but,it doesnt have clear mention of technical skills / computer programming languages.Where I can find these detais ?
6.If I study for 1-2 yrs on 175 or 176 and come back to India (my home country) for how many years my PR will be valid....remaining 3 yrs ?

Sorry for so many questions.Please advise.

Thanks,
Ajay Patil

1. compare the 175 & 176 for differences.
2. if you have the money to just study rather than work you can do that.
3. yes
5. you can only apply for ACS against criteria they suggest.
6. yes

thanks for ur quick response Wanderer.I really appreciate your help

1.During the process on PR can I visit Aus on student /work visa ?
2.During the process on PR can I visit some other country other than my home country (e.g UK ) on student /work visa ?
3."If one particular state sponsors me for 176 its must to work in that particualr state for 2 years".this is limitation of 176 thats why i think 175 is better than 176.(but 175 needs 7 is all sections of IELTS...my score is 6.5 so I'm planning of retaking the test)
4.After 4 yrs one has to apply for citizenship or its automatically granted ? How much time citizenship takes.?

I'm not planning for citizenship but just collecting the information.

Thanks a lot,
Ajay
