I cannot comment specifically on Civil Engineering, but I also needed to be assessed by Engineers Australia.Hi All,
Also thinking of making the move to Aus. Will try to go through 189 Visa (80 points). Civil Engineer 233211. Dont know if anyone will be able to help me out, but do I need to have my work experience vetted by Engineers Australia, or do they just check your qualifications? i.e. who actually checks your work experience against what you have claimed in your EOI?
Edit: changed points to avoid confusion. Thanks F1ve_Claw.
Updated list is out. Man alive it get's harder and harder, high points is now 95! Just about all ICT skills are on-shore only.The South Australia list should be available this week: https://www.migration.sa.gov.au/skilled-migrants/lists-of-state-nominated-occupations
My one way tickets are booked. Flying via Qantas, and will ship 3-4 boxes via Seven Seas.
I know how you feel. Things felt miles off and in the blink of an eye I will be eligible to apply for citizenship in March.It's crazy how the time flies once you're going, on Thursday I will have left SA 4 months ago and have been working in my new role for almost 3 months now.
Lucky bugger! My next milestone is buying a house again then second after that is applying for citizenship. Only 3 years and 8 months to go, lol.I know how you feel. Things felt miles off and in the blink of an eye I will be eligible to apply for citizenship in March.
House should happen pretty quickly, especially if your misses is working then it's easy to save. Just try make sure your deposit is 20% otherwise you have to pay LMI which is a waste. In a few days time will have been in my house for exactly a yearLucky bugger! My next milestone is buying a house again then second after that is applying for citizenship.

Only my son's SA passport will expire before we get AUS passports so I will need to apply for his renewal well in advance, I believe it takes around 8 months for an SA passport renewal from here.
I bought my Fenix from SA, no issues.Those in NZ, presume your garm n fenix devices are APAC...
For a fenix 6, would it be advisable to purchase here in SA? Or there in NZ?
Im not sure if i get a SA or ROW model vs a APAC model would remove item such as trails loaded etc? As those are linked to the loaded maps?
Will you be keeping your RSA citizenship? I've read that you need to fill in some forms to let HA know you are applying for citizenship in another country so you don't lose your RSA citizenship, although you can't lose residency afaik.I know how you feel. Things felt miles off and in the blink of an eye I will be eligible to apply for citizenship in March.
