  1. Hi, I'm a Prosthetist working in the UK (12 years) and would like to move permanently to Oz. I can get a skills assessment no problem as well as an IELTS. My spouse is also in the correct age bracket and can get a skills assessment. I already have family living in Australia (NSW) and I've stayed with them previously as a tourist. BUT I'm not considering a 491 family sponsored because it does not give me PR (I have children and I absolutely do not want the uncertainty of having to apply again in a few years time to stay in the country). Looking at the recent invitation rounds it seems that you need 90 points minimum to be invited to apply for a 189. After doing a points calculation I can get a maximum of 85. So it seems there is no point applying for a 189 for anzsco 251912 with only 85 points. Even though this job/career will be very low on applicants. This leaves me with 190 skilled nominated (which would push me to 90 points). However, having such a unique career seems to be a disadvantage as my role is not on the state skilled occupation lists which is confusing as it IS on the government SOL. I'm not sure how they have calculated it should be on the SOL when no states require it? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thank you
