On the 14th of March, Immigration professional Praveen held a seminar for our international students here at Orange International College. He is a registered with OMARA (Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority) in Australia and works for the company YEG Global.
He gave our students information on how they can apply for a visa and the possibilities of migrating to Tasmania. In order for International students to study in Tasmania and apply for the visa, they need to contribute to Tasmania’s economic growth. Growing Tasmania through finding study or employment opportunities in Tasmania.
Tasmania will rate your eligibility, if you qualify for their visa options. There are three different visa options to study and live in Tasmania, Visa sub class: 189, 196, and 149, which all three sub-classes need international students to reach a minimum of 60 points in the point test. The visa will grant the students with 40 weeks, 2 years stay in Tasmania and you must do at least 1 year of any type of work in Tasmania.
In order to get the total amount of point Praveen points out its dependent on age (best age around 25), level of English, skill qualification and previous employment, providing students with a useful link, the point checklist: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/supporting/Pages/skilled/The-points-table.aspx
Praveen also mentions handy tips to help the students apply for visa. He mentions it is best to show a hard-copy of financial evidence through previous pay slip, paid tax to show proof of your previous work experience. As well to get an even better chance of entering, if your points are over the recommended, minimum of 60 points you will have a higher chance of getting in.
It the end many students asked Praveen additional questions and many students were very interested to sign up to a free one-on-one immigration consultation.
