You need a minimum of 1500 hours to be issued with an ATPL.
Integrated CPL. Sorry, typo!

Also regarding 'starts', everyone has to start somewhere right? Maybe I would be better applying for an integrated ATPL with an airline in my home country with a guaranteed job at the end of it? I have heard that they are very competitive though..
