Default Jeremy, Alan, Peter please help.

I have a friend which was refused a visa grant 3 days ago because his
IELTS result was less that vocational level. What if he do a new test
within on or two months and gets a vocational level and sendt it to
ASPC, is it possible not to loose his aplication and money?

Thank you in advance

Your friend should get some professional advice. If his visa class carries an appeal right there might be some options for him if he takes action quickly.

However this is not an area where an online forum can be of any help, he needs a good agent straight away.

Dear LK,

I assume that your failure to mention me means I don't have to answer your enquiry. Since I'm the only agent posting here with experience in MRT or AAT appeals that's a relief :-)

Cheers,

George Lombard

Don't feel too left out George, maybe he'll come back to you later....

Nice to see you're doing you're bit to help George!

I appreciate that you have been of invaluable help to many people on this forum, but was this really neccessary!
Please put your dummy back in!

Perhaps LK just forgot to mention your name, I'm sure he doesn't have intimate knowledge of what areas of particular expertise each agent who is kind enough to comment on this forum has!

Perhaps Pollyanna is right, if this is the case why not just answer the question, instead of waiting for a hand written invitation!

I interpreted George's comments as a subtle way of highlighted the fact that he has both MRT & AAT experience... I much prefer the subtlety to a blatant, in-your-face "Choose me as your migration agent". The OP requested information about complex situation his friend is in, he was told his friend needed professional advice, and George stated that he had the relevant experience. It's as simple as that, in my eyes. If you interpreted George's statement as rude, what about posting to a forum frequented by hundreds of users, but only wanting answers from a select few?!

Perhaps Pollyanna is right, if this is the case why not just answer the question, instead of waiting for a hand written invitation!
All of the agents who frequent this forum are giving up their time for us... (and are much appreciated for doing so!!!). They can't be expected to constantly give advice for free... remember, this is how they earn their living! Besides, not all situations can be easily answered in an online forum.

I'm not meaning to have a go, but it just seems like a simple statement is getting blown out of proportion.

Well said Sara,

BTW it clearly states at the top of the 1st page of this forum not to use individual agents names.

I must agree with Saraliz. I think George was having a bit of friendly banter, not being deliberatly nasty. If you start bad mouthing the agents on this forum you may find they disappear. That would be a shame as they do provide good advice and tips, for FREE. It is their living and if they gave all their advice to everyone free they'd be out of a job. There was afterall a smiley face at the end.

I will re-iterate what I said on my original post, I appreciate that George (among many others, professional or otherwise!) have been of invaluable help to many people on this forum. It just struck me that if George had wished to answer the original Question he could have made his Light hearted comment, and then answered the question!
If I misinterpreted the post then I probably wasn't the only one, check out connelys.home's reply
As has been said many times on this forum it can be very easy to misinterpret any comments, with or without the use of smileys!

Also lets not kid ourselves that each agent who is kind enough to comment on this forum also does himself a great deal of good, obviously catching the eye of those who do require the full services of said agents, it's a great form of PR.

Hi Phiza,

Once a decision is made it's final. LK's friend would have received a letter to that effect. If he were sponsored he could appeal to the MRT; if not, he might need to explore a Federal Court appeal but most likely it wouldn't be worth going down that track. Every applicant whose native language isn't English needs to make sure they pass the IELTS test and some people fail. And to give any meaningful advice I would need to see the refusal letter.

I have just had another refused applicant contact me where it seems that the case officer has not calculated the work experience points correctly. If this happens you would need to get professional help immediately and not wait for a newsgroup reply.

But to explain my post, LK has been a participant here for quite a while and has sought my help in the past and will no doubt continue to do so. In that context I knew that his failure to mention my name was an oversight and meant it in that context only. All the dummies in my household are being stockpiled for the new arrival on 12 October.

Cheers,

George Lombard

No worries George, as I said before it's not always easy to recognise the right tone or context of every post!
Best of luck with the happy event and as a dad with four well out of the nappy stage I'd also like to add, rather you than me !!!
