    I am a midwife hoping to move to Oz early next year...contacted AHPRA recently and have been told that if you can prove that you have studied in english during secondary education then you no longer have to take the IELTS test..there was much confusion about this as I had previously emailed them and they emailed back twice stating that I still had to take the test as I had not studied in Australia..however others on pomsinoz were being told over the phone that they no longer had to sit the test..I then phoned myself and aslo have confirmation by email that as long as I can provide evidence of my education then I no longer have to take the test..hope this helps..not sure if it makes a difference as to which visa you go on..I am going on a 457 so dont need points or anything

    Know what you gutted cos I emailed AHPRA twice and they told me I still had to take the test even though others were told they didnt have I booked another one..paid another £108..test is booked for 11th Sept but do you think the college where I booked the test will give me my money back..not a chance..told them things have changed and I no longer need the test but they said they need it for ADMINISTRATIVE costs lol...wouldnt mind but phoned them the same morning that the cheque was taken from the bank...

    I have just put in an Expression of Interest EIO on the Queensland Health website so will sort out job then registration and then visa cos that doesnt normally take too long to come through..let me know how you get on
