    I'm flying out in a few weeks to Darwin. Not 100% about staying in other areas/states but I'm going to stick to the NT regardless for the foreseeable future.

    The information is on the dibp website. You can work in any occupation. Heres the link https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/887-?modal=/visas/supporting/Pages/887/eligibility-living-requirement.aspx

    Yeah I'm after a particular vehicle and there arnt many in Darwin. Plus vehicles are always much cheaper down south compared to the NT

    Are there rules etc that you have to fly directly into the state that you received your nomination from? Looking at flying into perth to buy a vehicle then driving it to darwin, my 489 is for NT.

    Hi Suzie, was the 1st year your training? Skills assessments and the way immi view your work experience is only post qualification. So if you worked for 3.1 years, and was training for 1. Then it only classes as 2.1 years experience
  8. Maybe try contacting some of the MARA agents on the site, they will be able to help out. As without your NVQ, but do have a positive skills assessment I'm not sure in how immi will go about awarding points. @Raul Senise
  9. If you are referring to the section that says - An award or qualification recognized by the relevant assessing authority for your nominated skilled occupation. Then this refers to 10 points for your Uk trade qualification that is confirmed by your skills assessment (VETASSESS). You will not receive 10 for your UK qualification as well as 10 for your skills assessment.
  10. Unless something has recently changed, correct me if I'm wrong ......
  11. SKills assessments are a mandatory part of skilled visa applications and do not award visa points as you would not be able to apply without it.

    Who knows about the vetassess assessment

    I would suggest calling them directly or contact a migration agent. For us on here to help you I feel like it would take a very long time with communication and little information we know about your situation.

    Mine just took just over 3 months from application to grant. But it was a very simple application as a single applicant. Good luck to everyone still waiting

    How many points do you currently have without the superior English points? If you are using a registered MA then they most likely will have already calculated your best options for a visa. 90% of people can only use the points gained from the English exam to boost their overall points. But 489 state-sponsored gain 10+ points if you're successful in being nominated. But it mostly depends on your current points what you can apply for and if you still need the English Pte. Also, most visas will require you score a mandatory 50 points in all 4 categories for PTE competent.
