Have I got this right? Application process

    Recommended Posts

    Hi folks,

    writing this from the snowy county of Cumbria longing for some Australian sunshine.....

    have I got this process correct?:

    1 IELTS

    2 Skills assessment ( CPA: visa in hubby's name and he's an accountant)

    3 EOI

    4 (hopefully) Invitation to apply

    5 Meds and police certs when asked for them? Or do we do them in advance and just provide them as soon as requested? Also do kids need medicals too? How much approx do Meds and police certs cost?

    I have been able to gather loads of useful info from here and also PIO and if I have managed to get my head around it all was thinking of going it alone. Any thoughts on that? If an agent is recommended has anyone used anyone particularly good?

    thanks in anticipation for any advice you feel like sharing,

    We did skills assessment before IELTS. As assessment took over 3 months.

    Police check was £70 for quick turn around. Medicals were roughly £350 a person.

    if you have a straight forward case you should be able to do it yourself.

    Thanks hotrod, hubby needs to put IELTS score on his skills assessment form. Otherwise I think we're straightforward. No medical or criminal issues! Plus hubby has 90 points so hoping we will get visa ok,

    cheers J

    It's a few years ago now , but was approx £1500, and they let us pay in instalments which helped ,the immigration department also put the visa price up every year on July 1st as well as moving the goal posts .
