Hi all,

Are there any U.K, Registered nurses out there who have applied for a Skilled P.R visa, or who have recently received a visa?

What was the application process like for you, time taken, any difficulties etc etc etc.

Any replies of info appreciated.

Ta,

Chris.

Hi Chris, I am a Reistered Nurse about to apply for skills assessment. We have only
just begun the process and it has already proved a big headache. firstly you need to
write to the UKCC dont forget to send a cheque for £20! They will send verification
of your current registration and a transcript of your nurse education to the
Australian Nursing Council, so you need to tell them when and where you trained. Next
you need to obtain employment refernces, one professional refernce not more than 1
year old and employment status refernces from all your previous nursing employers.
This I have found really time consuming, it is only a brief statement of your dates
of employment and the capacity in which you were employed, but I am still waiting
after nearly 4 weeks for one of them. You have to get copies of all your
certificates, you dont send originals. If you are a member of the RCN they do a
really good information pack for nurses wishing to work abroad. Next you need a
Notary or Justice of the peace to certify your documents, the Notary's can be found
in the yellow pages, expect to pay around £40 for this. good luck Andrea

Hi, we have just been granted our PR visa,It took us in total 5 months. everything went quite smoothly, we sent application in September money debited in October and medicals and pcc requested in November. We went to Brisbane area end of November for two weeks and when we got back we had a letter requesting more information regarding my son who is 18 so this held us back a bit. Got that sorted and then received a request for copies of our nonblank passport pages as we had now got stamps in them after visiting Australia. These were sent back begining Feb and we received an email yesterday to say our visa had been granted. i am a registered mental nurse so we were on the demand list. If you want to talk about anything contact us though this thread or send a pm.
Fingers crossed you wont have to wait long.
Dawn and Mark :)

Hi Chris

You will find there are loads of nurses posting on here and we have our own dedicated forum... keep scrolling down till you find it.... :D

My visa is PR, no problems whatsoever, took them 17 days from receipt of application to grant the visas... my story is in the timeline and under some of my posts. I did frontload and nurses were being processed superquick then.. September 2003

Good Luck
