We are looking to migrate to SA using my OH occupation which is a state sponsored profession (environmental consultant) and myself as the defacto partner (pharma sales manager). Looking at the mountain of admin confronting us (and baring in mind we are right at the start!) we could do with some help and wondered if anyone would be happy to give us the benefit of their experience in going through the process. We would be ever so grateful.
My OH is self employed and so needs to compile enough evidence of clients/contracts etc and whilst he has a few of these, they do not cover all the years of his self employment. Has anyone else been in this boat and if so, how much information did people need to submit on this to Vetassess?
He has a statutory declaration to make and there seems to be 2 forms, one for the Commonwealth and one for SA state. Essentially they look like they are the same wording, but we are interested to know if they both need to be completed, or just one (and if so, which one)?
Looking at some of the things that need to be done (Vetassess, IELTS, medicals, EOI, State sponsored submission etc), has anyone found a practical/good order in which to complete these? ie, is it more appropriate to complete the Vetassess check signed off and approved first as state sponsorship isn't likely to happen without it?
On the SRG1 form to Vetassess there is the following question 'do you also require an advisory letter to support your claim for points in the GSM points test' What does this mean as there is an additional fee to pay.
Any help would be gratefully recieved
thank you so much for your time
All the best.
