OK I am really confused now,
Was on the immi website and this is what it states for Schedule 3
This list applies to applications made on or before 31 December 2012 for a Subclass 885 (Skilled-Independent), 886 (Skilled – Sponsored), or
Subclass 487 (Skilled – Regional Sponsored) visa by an applicant who held a Subclass 485 visa on 8 February 2010 or had applied for a
Subclass 485 visa that was not finally determined on 8 February 2010, and may nominate an occupation on the current SOL or the new SOL
that commences from 1 July 2010.
This list also applies to applicants who held a student visa in subclasses 572, 573 and 574 on 8 February 2010 and who apply for subclass 485
visa on or before 31 December 2012.
Applicants can only nominate an ANZSCO occupation from 1 July 2010. The ASCO codes correlated to ANZSCO occupations provide
DIAC-endorsed policy guidance for the purposes of acceptable skills assessments. An applicant with a relevant valid skills assessment in an
ASCO occupation should map it to the relevant ANZSCO occupation.
So I was on a Student 572 on 8 February 2010 and applied for a 485 last month. S what does it actually mean, can we apply for GSM or not??
This is starting to annoy me now.
Any info/help would be greatly appreciated.
