  1. How to start skill assessment for 342313 electronic equipment trades worker? If someone can give instructions one by one it is great for me.
  2. Hey everyone, just trying to find people that been through a similar situation or has any advice. I've received the response from APS for a psychology skill assessment and it was recognised only 5 years (6 years is the requirement for a positive skill assessment). They considered only 1 year of my Master, even though it was a full-time 2-year program in Europe (like 90% of the Masters in Europe). According to APS, they only recognised 1 year because my Master required 500h of practice, and APS says the Master must require 1000h of practice in order for them to recognise the full 2 years. I find this very unreasonable, especially because I have 2 years of experience post degree. Please, does anyone have any advice or experience to share?
  3. PLUMBER Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189) - Skill Assessment | HELP PLEASE! I am really hoping someone can please assist me and my partner (a UK citizen). I am an Australian citizen and my partner wants to move to Australia to live and work as a plumber but we are finding the visa process extremely difficult and confusing. My partner is 32 years of age and a qualified plumber/gas fitter in the UK with over 8 years’ experience. We enlisted the help of a migration consultant in Sydney originally and she told us initially that he should apply for a Skilled Independent Visa 189. However we have just been told by her that she provided us with the wrong information initially and he is not eligible to apply for the VISA. To be eligible for this visa and to send of an expression of interest, he needs to do a skill assessment (OSAP - Offshore Skills Assessment Program) to gain a Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) through a company called VetAssess but he doesn’t meet the following criteria: “Your evidence must show you have worked in your occupation for at least 12 months within the last 3 years and must be able to be verified.” Unfortunately my partner does not meet this criteria as he has been based in Bali for the past 3 years working in another field. However prior to that he has always worked as a plumber in the UK and now wants to settle down in Australia with me, as a plumber. Is there a way around this criteria? I am now looking into the option of my partner finding a plumber to sponsor him so he can apply for sponsorship visa. However it appears even for these sponsor visas, my partner still needs to do his skill assessment to obtain an OTSR. My partner has a holiday visa for Australia currently. He flew back to the UK about a month ago to get together all his paperwork/evidence so he could do his skill assessment but now we don’t know what to do since apparently he isn’t eligible. We are really hoping there is a way for him to be able to work in Australia as a plumber. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  4. Hello forum members, I have been following this forum for a while. Thanks a lot for all the informative info. I have a question about Vetasses skill assessment for work experience while studying, if anyone could please take the time and answer I would really appreciate. I am looking to apply for skill assessment with Internal Auditor which falls under Group A and requires a minimum 1 year of post qualification work experience. I have been working as an Internal Auditor since 2012 to date. However, I completed my bachelors on December of 2017. I continued my work while I was studying full time from 2014 to 2017. I am still employed as an audit officer with the same company. So my question is will Vetasses only count my work experience after graduating from Uni or will my work experience before and while studying be counted too? A break down- working as internal auditor with the same company from 2012 till date. 2014-2017 studying at uni while working at the same time. 2018- to date still employed with the same company under the same occupation (Audit officer). Please let me know. Thanks
  5. 1) My first query is that I want to apply for VETASSESS skill assessment for Job Code 149212 - Customer Service Manager for sub-class 489 Visa but unable to get roles and responsibilities letter from my employer. If I get statutory declaration written by my supervisor that is notarized from India, do I need to get it for all designations that I hold in the company since joining or only the latest one? For ex- I joined as Domain Expert Trainee and promoted to Assistant Manager (which is my current designation) after 2 years of joining. So should the Stat Dec include only Assistant Manager roles and responsibilities or both Domain Expert and Assistant Manager. If both, then should it be on one letter itself or two different letters? Also, Should the declaration include duration/tenure for both the designations? 2) My second query is that I used to work for a bank in London, UK which I have left about 5 years ago. I tried contacting bank's HR department for the roles and responsibilities letter but they denied stating they don't have any such letter to be issued as per their policy. Now, I am back in India with no contact with my supervisor or any colleagues. I do have supporting documents such as e-mail confirmation by HR that they don't provide any such letter, my appointment letter, pay slips, experience letter, relieving letter, tax statement etc. In such a scenario, should an affidavit with a self written statutory declaration about my roles and responsibilities be accepted by Vetassess? Please suggest
  6. Hi friends, I have bachelor degree Business Administration. And I have my own music education school for 4 years.

  7. Good Morning folks, I hope everyone is doing very well. I am pretty new to this valuable forum and would like some help from the helping forum members. I intend to apply for the skill assessment for Hotel or Motel Manager. As it is not a trade skill, there is no practical exam, I am just wondering if they conduct any sort of interview or something for us to be prepared for. I do understand the importance of precise documentation, fulfilling their requirements. If anyone has any experience with Vetasses regarding Hotel or Motel Manager skill assessment and would like to share the process and experience, it will be very very helpful. Looking forward to hearing from you .....

    187 RSMS Confusion

    Hi there, I have a condition like I am in 457 visa and I am going change my employer after continuously woking with him since june 2015. Currently I find an employer who wish me to sponsor for Rsms 187, do I need skill assessment after having 3.5+ years of experience in same occupation to apply 187 visa?
  9. I got positive assessment from VETASSESS. I have been working for the occupation for 3.5 yrs, however VETASSESS deducted 2 years so Number of years assessed positively: 1.5 How should I put work experience in EOI? Should I or shouldn't I include those 2 years deducted. (EOI asks to state starting date. if I ignore those 2 years that means starting date is 2 years later than reality??) Please help. Thank you.
  10. Hi there, I am very disappointed by the negative outcome. Did anyone here got their negative outcome and got positive from re-assessment? Please help. My question is: what is the best way to position this in the reassessment application? I'm afraid it would seem fishy if I provide another job description that goes into further details of the required tasks. I actually have a solid argument as I actually perform most of the tasks that ANZSCO required. I'm just not sure what's the best way to approach this. what are the additional documents that strong enough to support?
  11. Hi all, can anyone help clarify the below statement...242111 University Lecturer (Suitable for the position of Research Associate or Research Fellow in a University) "Suitable for the position of Research Associate or Research Fellow in a University"Can a Research Fellow (but not a lecturer) working in the uni be nominated by "242111 University Lecturer" occupation ?And If so, can this occupation go with 186 (direct entry) or just can do 457 (long term TSS from now on) and transfer to 186 later ?Thanks all
  12. I am processing for Skill assessment under engineering Australia. I have submitted Self Declaration from one of my co-worker while submitting the document. I got the below message from assessor " Please note that affidavits are not accepted in lieu of 5 point duty statement from the company. You are therefore advised to provide the 5 points duty statement from the company" So now Question is..... 1. As per my company policy, I will only get the reference letter after leaving the company as they are liable to provide only for EX-employee. HR person is ready to give me on email why they cant give the letter. Also, they have given my letter which includes my tenure and designation with working hours. So can I go ahead and submit that letter and attach an email from HR? 2. Why did EA not accept my Declaration? Do I need to submit another declaration? Please, someone, help me here. How I would process further.

  17. Hi All, I have a question about the connection between TRA/Engineers Australia and DIBP. Age: 30 points Education: Diploma in Electronics (full time)– 2007 BE. Electrical and Electronics (Part-time) – 2012 Experience: Electronic Technician – 2007-2011 – 4 years Electrical Technical Specialist - 2012- 2016 – 4 years (This is mixed job profile of Electronic/Electrical hands-on and Degree level job responsibilities) English: IELTS – 0 points I have TWO positive skilled assessment on the following: Electronic Instrument trade worker – 8 yeas (2007 -2016) Electrical engineer - 4 years (2012 – 2016) The CRITICAL AREA is that I have skilled assessment of Electronic Instrument trade worker and Electrical engineer for the same period of 2012 – 2016. I am not submitting any fake documents; it is just that my responsibilities are inclusive of Electrical equipment, electronic equipment, and hands-on activities & degree level responsibilities. I haven’t launched the EOI. My question is that is there any issue of submitting EOI as an Electronic Instrument trade worker since I already have a skilled assessment from Eng AU as an Electronic instrument trade worker? Is there any chance of rejecting my visa application? I will not submit any Eng Au paper when I get invited. Did Engineers Australia create any record at DIBP when I have completed my skill assessment with them? I will have 60 points if I can submit as an Electronic Instrument Technician. And how about TRA? Did they create any record at DIBP when I have completed my skilled assessment with them? Thank you in advance, Best regards, Sony

  19. After some advise please Is there any way somebody working in any of the following, would be able to get a skill visa into Australia - health & welfare service manager, mental health, support worker Thank you in advance guys
  20. Dear Seniors I was graduated in 2011 from an Australian University and since then I worked 1.8 years as a professional. I'm about to submit my EOI for 189 visa and I'm claiming for 5 points for Australian work experience. I heard/aware the fact that ACS nowadays deducts "years" from applicants work experiences to deem people as skilled etc. My question is, will I be eligible to apply under "Post Australian Studies skill assessment"?? If I'm eligible, then there is a chance that my 1.8 years work experience all count. So, I can claim 5 points. Because, skilled met date for this category is "the date of the graduation". Please advice, thank you
  21. Hello, I have a bachellor as computer engineer and I finish the master degree 2 years ago. I was in the trainingship visa 402. Now, I want to apply for 457 with the help of my employer.

  22. Hello, I am a new member. I will be applying for a skill assessment for the "Developer Programmer" role. I was wondering if anyone can provide me a sample of an Employment reference for this role. I have the format provided by ACS and also ANZSCO job description. But just need to know how detailed the employment reference needs to be. Is is sufficient to have the points mentioned in the ANZSCO job description or do we need to go into details of technology, etc? If anyone has a sample employment reference letter or any other information that would help, it would be great. Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi All, Below is my situation. I was working for organisation A for 6 years and 8 months till December 2013. In February, i Joined Organisation B at the same designation (Senior Business Analyst - IT - 261111). In May, i had my skill assessment done, but in my naivety, as i did not want to inform my employer that i'm planning on migrating to Australia, i only showed the reference letter from my previous employer i.e. 6 years and 8 months. I got my assessment result in June, and ACS deducted 2 years making my experience 4 years and 8 months. I recenly got my ielts result and got a band of 8 (min 7.5 so 10 points). So here is my points Age - 30 Qualification - 15 English - 10 Job - 5 / 10 if current experience is counted. I want to now, whether i should go ahead and show my current experience which is 9 months now making overall 5 years and 5 months, despite that my current experience has not been assessed by ACS. Would diac accept if i show them the reference letter and salary proofs from current employer. Cheers
