Visa subclass 176 - family sponsored.

Hi,

This is Shaon and I would like to thank the website administrator and the members of this site who generously share their experience and advice in helping the new comers for Australian immigration.

I have been contemplating in applying to migrate to Australia for a while and have finally decided to lodge my application. I am an Electronics Engineer, graduated from Bristol University, UK, been working as a technical consultant for the last three and half years. I am 28 years old and a Bangladeshi national. My sister lives in Australia and is a citizen. I have recently taken an IELTS exam and scored 8 overall. Therefore, I believe I have a total score of 125 points which makes me eligible to apply for the subclass 176. However, there are some issues (typical!) that I am a bit concerned about, which may reduce the chances of my application being successful.

The issues are:

On my sisterís birth certificate the last letter of my motherís first name is Y, where as on my birth certificate it is I. My motherís surname in both of our birth certificates is the same. It is a typical mistake in Bangladesh, especially the rural area where I am from. So, the mistake is actually on the birth register. Our dadís name in both of our certificates is the same. Could this be a problem?

The permanent address on our birth certificates is not the same. I have used our village as my permanent address, where as my sister used our City apartment address as her permanent address. I have the city address written as my current address on my passport. Could this be an issue?

My sister is using her credit card to pay for the application fees, could this cause any problem? I donít have any problem paying but she insisted...

I have started working as an Electronic engineer after graduation but I was soon given consulting work where I didnít have to undertake any hands on work. I worked as a network design engineer, telecommunication infrastructure upgrade advisor and then in the government as systems analyst. Would this fulfil ANZSCO requirement for Electronics engineer?

Confused, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Your mother's name variation and address re yours and your sister's BCs should not be an issue.
It'll be up to the assessing authority, Engineers Australia to assess your qualifications and experience may not come into question with them and as long as your consultancy work has sufficient engineering content and you can show that by your work references, I'd think it should not be a problem re experience requirement for the visa application.

As to how the fee is paid, as long as it is paid with the application submission is the main thing, so perhaps you can do that best and your sister give you a gift or whatever if she is insistent upon it.
You ought to have a read of the latest Immi info via the Whats New Link @ Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration particularly the information on processing priorities and consider looking at state nomination for a SMP176 if available for EE as that could mean a much shorter time re waiting/processing.

Are you also talking of family sponsorship Fahim and if so, yes but if talking of state sponsorship, the states can have their own requirements.

Thank you, Wanderer. Your words are reassuring. I shall lodge my assessment application to Washington Accord next week and once received (I hope it wonít take more than 3 weeks) I will submit my immi application online.

I looked at the state nomination program, but soon realised that the demand for my occupation is drying out quickly and the state that I found still in need of this profession is far far away from my sisterís house. Therefore, I will have to go with the family sponsored route.

I am glad that I found this site and am certain that I will be visiting here quite often. I will keep in touch until after I reach Australia as a permanent resident (I hope).

You still need to have an occupational assessment and with ACS there may be a requirement for four or more years of experience but it will depend on the actual course you have done and their assessment of it, details in the FAQ on their site.

Sent the assessment application on the 17th of Feb; outcome just arrived today, +ve but as Engineering Technologist (skill level 1) ANZSCO 233914. I was hoping the outcome to be Electronics Engineer......

So here are the details now:
Age: 28
IELTS: 8
Profession: Engineering Technologist
Sponsor: Sister (Australian Citizen)
Work experience: 4 years
Current location: London - work permit - been living here for the last 10 years.
Community language – Bangla (Although can’t prove it as I did my undergraduate here in UK)

Do I have a good chance of getting the Visa- subclass 176 relative sponsored?

Cheers
