I am a software tester i have recieed positive assesment from ACS. How do i know if my skill is still under any state sponserhip or If I am still eligible for applying under 176. Please guide.
noob, this is the link to the occupations sponsored by Victoria at the moment, you'll have to check and see if your code matches any of the ones sponsored by Victoria.
State Sponsorship Occupation List for Victoria (230.1 KB)
I'm afraid you'll have to google the other states!
If you need more steps in guiding for application, I strongly suggest you contact a registered migration agent to determine what the next step should be to avoid making unnecessary mistakes which could be costly!

Software Testers are only eligible to apply under State Sponsorship route, i,e. 190. Currently, only Victoria and South Australia are offering sponsorship for this profession.
