hello everyone, this is my first post so please excuse me if I don't get all the jargon right. I did the NAATI (Australian Translators Accreditation) test in December and awaiting a positive skills assessment. I am 42. If I get a positive assessment I have to work for a year as a Translator then apply immediately.
Am hoping to apply to DIAC approx 1 year and 2 months away from my 45th birthday. Apparently applications are ACCEPTED up to the age of 45 BUT I am concerned i will not get the 15 points for age if my application is ASSESSED after the age of 45.
Will go for 475 or 176 visa. Apparently the 475 has quicker processing times.
Has anyone experienced problems with points for age at assessment time? and what are the current processing times for 475/176 - sorry I realise this is a how long is a piece of string type question.
