hi all, this is my first post on pio although I have been following this site closely for a while now. I am grateful to everyone who participates in this forum and especially to all those who answer queries on the forum (especially gill). Ive got a query of my own that im hoping somebody can help me out with......I had applied for a 886 visa (NSW state sponsored onshore visa) with a nominated occupation as a life scientist (nec) on 19th september 2009. my assessing body for the occupation was VETASSES and at the time, i had a positive assessment from them (i had used the same assessment i used a year earlier for my 485 visa application). at the time i obtained my degree assesment, work experience (which i still so not have) was not required for a positive assesment. however, as of jan 1st work experience is mandatory for a positive skills assesment from vetassess. i kept telling myself i had escaped from this work experience requirement for my visa to be granted. but just a couple of hours back, i came across this on the diac website; <http://www.immi.gov.au/legislation/amendments/2010/lc01012010-07.htm> I am aware that all applicants with TRA occupations have to be reassessed on or after 01 jan. does this also include applicants whose occupations are assessed by vetasses? (Remember I have already applied for my 886 visa with a positive skills assesment in September). If this be the case, i would then require work experience for a positive skill assessment which i do not have which in turn would mean that the 886 application i have lodged would ultimately be unsuccesful which means that im losing sleep........my question is do I have to reapply for a skills assessment on or after jan 01? I understand that my question might be a bit confusing...if it is Id be happy to explain it again....I just really need an answer or i risk being an insomniac till a descision on my visa is made. SOmebody please put me out of my misery. pretty please. PS I am a category 5 applicant ie, with state sponsorship but occupation not on csl.
