  1. Hi, I am new to this forum. Could anyone please help me about caiming points for local work experience as an accountant. I have got 1 year of work experience and got positive skill assessment through ICCA and would like to claim points in order to apply for 189 visa. Also please let me know what are they really specific on. Anybody with this experience please advice. And also does anyone have any idea if we can submit EOI for 190 visa for July 2014? Regards AS
  2. Hello I am starting to put together my EOI evdience for the 189 and 190 skilled migration visas. I am an accountant and so I intend to try and apply for the 190 visa in NSW (this is where i am currently living and working) in addition to the more flexible 189. After graduating from uni with an economics degree I worked for 6 years as an acountant in the UK prior to travelling to Aus. For the 1st 3 years I worked for a big four firm where i passed my accounting exams and gained the 3 years experience required to become chartered. This is standard in the UK and I think that you need the 3 years experience for other accounting qualifications such as CIMA. I have spoken with the Australian Institute of Chartered accountants and it appears that they will only look at my employment history for the skilled employment assessment from the date that I became qualified. This also seems to be the case with the CPA. This only gives me 3 years relevant experince in my skills assessent and therefore I will only achive 5 points on the skills slect score instead of 10 points that I had initially expected (for 5 years +). The questions that I have are: 1) Will DIAC only look at the work expereince that is included within the skilled employment assessment? As such can I 'claim' the 10 points? 2) Has anyone else spotted/encountered this problem and if so was there a positive result? It seems nonsense to me that 3 years financial audit employment would not be assessed as it is highly relevant to my skills. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
