  1. 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
  2. Hi, I have 7 year xp of permanent job but in between i have taken break and done free lance work - 2 month Work Experience. so can it be calculated by ACS while assessment of f my profile?
  3. I have created an account to submit EOI in Skillselect but got stuck with work history. I have about 8 years 4 months relevant post graduation experience in an engineering field. I also have a positive skills assessment from Engineers Australia, however I do not have an assessment of "relevant skilled employment". I believe I have all the right documents listed in subclass 189 document checklist which is issued by DIBP: employment references, contracts, pay slips, tax returns, bank statements, letters of termination. The question is: Does DIBP deduct a few years from everyone's experience (like ACS does) no matter what evidence one may present? Should I put one year of my relevant experience as non-relevant just to play it on the safe side? If yes, would I be getting questions from CO as to why a year in the company is not relevant and other years are? Would it be considered "misleading information" as it pertains to DIBP terms and conditions? p.s. I am not in need of an extra year, nor am I in hurry to get invited (the only difference would be 65 vs 60 points and an invitation round ahead).
  4. Hi everyone.I received my IELTS results today and luckily have gained 20 points. I am now going to lodge my eoi but I have a few queries before I do. I hope you can help.I am not claiming points for work experience as I only have 11 months post qualification therefore do not have enough for points. 1. Do I still include all jobs iv had in the last 10 years and tick them as not relevant. 2. If doing this should I include the unpaid work experience I did as part of my study as I have this on my cv.Thanks

    Skilled Nomination - Visa 190

    Hello everyone My wife is an "Electrical Engineer" who is going to apply for NSW sponsorship she is thinking to claim points on the following criteria Age: 30 Education: 15 (Oversees Masters degree) English:10 (IELTS 7) NSW Sponsorship: 5 -------------------------------------- Total 60 now i have 2 questions 1. she doesn't have any work experience. So is it possible for her to apply for migration now?? (she met 60 points). Or she needs to have minimum 12 months work experience to apply? 2. She finished her "Bachelors in Engineering" from outside australia. Can she get points for that or not? In the immi.gov.au, they mentioned that australian uni or "recognised standard" to claim 15 points. your answer is highly appreciated. Thanks Ash
  6. Good evening, This is my first post so apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but I can't find it. If anyone does have a link, that would be great as well. So my partner and I are looking to move to Australia, and have been looking at the 189 Skilled Independent Visa. This won't be for a couple of years yet, as we have to aim for something on the SOL. We have been looking at Accountant (general) for my partner, as there is a good chance he can complete the ACCA in 2, possibly 3, years. By that time, he will have: Age: 30 points English: 20 points Educational: 15 points (I have scouted round and found that ACCA is equivalent to Australian Bachelors) Obviously he won't have experience working as an Accountant by the time we apply, but is this a problem? For skills assessment, is just the ACCA enough to claim that? Are people asking about pre-degree experience just because they would like the extra points? Or is it essential he has experience for his skills assessment? I'm having a hard time finding that bit of specific information anywhere. I also do understand that Accountant (General) may very well not be on the SOL by then, but I'm working towards a degree followed by PGDE which could allow me to apply as Secondary Teacher for 189 visa if need be (again, I know it might go away at anytime!). I think I got all this out coherently! Many thanks for any help or pointers anyone can give me. I know it's a long time away(ish) but I would like to know we are on the right track so less chance of problems in the future. Thanks! Ferg :err:
  7. Hi all, I am looking to go out to Australia on a 489 State sponsor visa for Hairdressing CSOL. I have already done lot's of research but there are a few things I am unsure of. I would be so grateful if someone could please help me. What can you use as proof of your work experience? Can you use bank statements or does it have to be P60 and pay slips? Last year I worked self employed (in salon) can I count that as work experience? Do you need a certain amount of money in the bank to show you can support yourself whilst out in Australia to be accepted for 489? Many thanks, Sarah
  8. Hi everyone, can anyone explain how work experience counts for visa 189 (permanent independent) my situation: 2010 - Diploma in IT straight after I started to work as Software Developer and started bachelor degree course. I was working 1.5 years part time (20 or greater hours per week, paid) during studying than I was awarder by scholarship and was working as intern next 6 months- it was part of my degree such as industrial project, but still full-time and paid as soon as it finished, I obtained degree and started in new company where I have worked for 1.5 years (full-time, paid) Both Diploma and Degree were evaluated as Majors in IT by ACS Question: Do I have 3 years of work experience for 189 visa? Thanks for answers and comments.
  9. Hi all, I have a few questions and I am hoping that someone may have an answers for me. I have a degree in Graphic Design from Curtin University, WA (from September 2013) but I do not have at least 1 year paid work experience instead I have some paid freelance graphic design jobs behind me and a year of voluntary design work done for the university. I have written my IELTS and will get my results on Thursday (I am sure I have passed) My questions are: Is it possible to still pass my skills assessment based on the work history I DO have? Has anyone passed skills assessment with little or no work experience but with an Australian qualification? Which migration agent is the best to approach who actually has successfully helped anyone achieve their skills assessment pass mark? I would be very grateful if anyone could help me in this area. Thanks :biggrin:
  10. Hi all, I wanna claim 5 points for my work experience in Australia. I have been working with my company for 1 year. I understand that I need to obtain a company employment reference letter to support my claim. My company has written me a letter stating the entire period i have been working with my title, pay and duties. However, I cant provide payslip for the whole year. I only have some payslip. And also I did not get pay for the beginning 3 months but I get reimbursement for lunch and transport instead. Is it still ok to claim for the point? Thanks for answering. Regards, Hong
  11. Hi All, I have some queries regarding Work Experience Assessment by Engineers Australia (EA) and EOI. It would be much appreciated if some of you can help. Here is my situation and timeline: December 2013 - I had a standard occupation/qualification (Australian Qualification) assessment done by EA, and successfully received the assessment outcome letter. Jan 2014 - Worked with my current employee in Australia for a year, which can give me an extra 5 points towards my EOI (makes a total of 65). Then I started preparing docs to get my work experience assessed by EA. 17 March 2014 - Submitted docs required for skilled employment assessment to EA. According to EA, I had to return the original outcome letter received previously, so to enable EA to issue an updated letter to incorporate advice on my work experience. 21 March 2014 - $330 additional service fee deducted from my credit card. No confirmation email received from EA yet. Now - I want to lodge my EOI before mid-April, but not sure when I can receive the updated assessment from EA. So, My concerns are: 1 How long will my additional work experience assessment be processed by EA, given that I already have my qualification assessed previously? The turnaround time for standard qualification assessment is approx. 8 weeks as shown on EA website, but this turnaround time is not applicable to my case. I was wondering what will be a practical processing time to expect in my case. Has anyone of you had the same situation before? 2 Worst case scenario, if it is taking too long for EA to finalise my update assessment. Is it okay for me to lodge my EOI only based on my standard skill assessment which was issued in Dec 2013, even though I have returned the original letter back to EA, which I'm afraid that the previous assessment outcome is no longer valid as I requested for an additional assessment. I hope my explanation is clear, and again your help is much appreciated. I'm desperate for an answer. Thanks!!!
  12. Hi, I am new to this forum. Could anyone please help me about caiming points for local work experience as an accountant.

  13. I'm applying for PR under 186 direct entry stream, with my employers assistance. One of the requirements is I need 3+ years work experience, where this is based on a 35 hour per week full time employment. I have around 2.8 years with my current employer, however I do 40 hours per week and this is also noted in my contract. Would the case officer take this into consideration? I'm really hoping the additional hours can be taking into account and justify the 3 years requirement. Any comments or thoughts?
  14. Hi..I am thinking about applying for 190 visa and im reading myself round in circles...I dont need work experience for extra points or for my anmac skills assesment but do I need it for the visa itself?...I do have experience but not 3 years..I've read you dont but on queensland goverment website (the state i want to sponsor me) it says 3 years work experience needed so im confused.

    Points for Employment - subclass 189

    Hi everyone, I'm based out of India and looking to apply for the 189 Skill Independent Visa. Following is my Points assessment: Age 23y - 25 points Education - B.Com (2010), CA India (2011) and ACCA (2011) - 15 points IELTS - R9, L8, W7, S7 - 10 points At this stage, I have 50 points under my belt and need an additional 10 points to pass the Points Test. Work Ex - This has been an enigma for me. I have been in continuous employment since 2007. I started off as part-qualified right from mid 2007 (it was paid employment and 35 hours a week) and graduated in 2010 followed by qualifying as a professional accountant in early 2011 (ACCA). So how many years of experience can I claim towards the Employment points? If considered from 2007, I score 10 points for >5 yrs of work exp which is what I require. However, if part-qualified experience cannot be considered towards the points test, I may have 0 or 5 points only. 2007-Present (10 points) 2010-Present (5 points) 2011-Present (0 points) I'm not sure how much will be considered by DIAC. All of this experience was however in my occupation (External Audit). Can anybody suggest based on their prior experience or knowledge as to how many points can be claimed towards Employment in such a situation? The Booklet 6 on the immigration page (http://www.immi.gov.au/skills/skillselect/index/visas/subclass-189/#skilled-employment) doesn't seem to make any clarification on part-qualified work-exp. Another option I have is to retake the IELTS and score at least 8 on each band and then claim 20 points towards English Language ability. But this is expensive and there's no guarantee that'll I'll end up with 8 on each so I'm not very keen going this way. I'll have to reconsider if I'm left with no choice. Further, applying under which ANZSCO code would make my application have a higher chance of selection? Any inputs are much appreciated. Thanks
  16. please can anyone clarify. to get 5 points I need to work for 3 years over 20 hours a week on a contract. I have worked as a nurse 22 hours a week sometimes extra on a contract for the last 4 years. is the three years experience needed for points based on full time hours as I was told on my ANMAC skills assessment that my work would only count for approx 18 months. does anyone know how this is calculated, is full time 35 or 37.5 hours a week? and how I can calculate how many more months I would need to work for to be considered the equivalent of 3 years full time? thanks:biggrin:
  17. Hi Guys, I have my cousin who applied for 190 EOI with – age 25 - points 30, AQF III Points 10, State nomination point 5, Work Exp 8 plus years point 15 altogether 60 :cool: However his 8 years are including 3 years of Full Term Apprenticeship :mad: My concern is whether time served as apprentice counted towards work experience As Full Term apprenticeship is a delivered on “On Job Training” model, this should be counted as relevant work experience. He has been asked to provide evidence that he reached the required skill level prior to completing the qualification and are therefore eligible to claim points for this work experience. How to overcome this one? Pl help
  18. Hi, I applied for ACS assessment with event type as RPL on March 23rd and got my result last weekend. I am confused with the ACS result. Following is the message "Your skills have been assessed to be suitable for migration under the 263111 (Computer Network and Systems Engineer) of the ANZSCO code". "Your Bachelor of Technology (Electronics & Communication Engineering) from XYZ University has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor degree with a major in computing". However, only the last few years of my employment have been acknowledged. One of projects that I was working on, spanned 3 different companies (due to transitions). But ACS has considered only the employment duration of the last company among the three. As a result only 2.5 yrs of my employment is acknowledged, though I have 6.3 yrs in total. Could someone please help me understand how exactly is ACS assessing work experience and if I am eligible for applying for 189 visa. - Jana
  19. Hi everybody. I am new to the forum and want to find out how to prove the years of experience while applying for 175 or 176 GSM visa? My brother has applied for a RPL from ACS and is expecting a positive assessment soon, based on the correspondence till date. The RPL requires 6 years of experience. His total experience is 9 yrs+. In order to obtain the 15 points for overseas work experience, he needs to prove his relevant work experience to be more than 8 years. We believe ACS will certify that he has more than 6 years of experience based on the RPL reports. What is the way to establish the balance years if ACS does not mention that in the assessment result? Any suggestion/opinion will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance becky
  20. Hello. I am just finishing my PGCE and looking into the process of emigrating to Australia. I have been advised by an agent that I can apply as soon as I have finished my PGCE and do not have to work for a year as I previously thought. Can anyone confirm if this is correct? Thank you for your help.
  21. Hey all! Hope everyone's well! I'd like to know a couple of things about the work experience requirement for immigration application: 1. I attained my work experience during my studies. Is this acceptable for attaining the points for overseas work experience? Or is it a must that the work experience must be post-qualification? Please provide me with a link to this info if you can 2. Is it a must to submit payslips for the work? I don't have payslips for all 3 years of my work :err: Thanks all! Cheers!

    Proving Work Experience?? HELP!! (189)

    Hi Guys, I'm a complete newbie so bear with me while I explain. We've went through the process on our own, and with lots of help browsing through this forum (so thanks guys you've all been great!). We were allocated a CO on Weds 13th March (yay), however they've asked for further proof of my work experience; I'm claiming 5 years. In those five years I've had 3 jobs; and for the most part I can evidence with payslips from now back to Jan 2010. I have duty statements/references for all employment. The remaining two years I don't have P60s or payslips (I had a purge of documents before I'd even thought of starting this process), so I was proposing to complete evidence with bank statements and national insurance report. So I mailed my CO this and to be honest I didn't get a clear response, she reverted to saying I should provide payslips and P60s, which I'd already stated I didn't have. So my question is: Do I have enough evidence with the tax reports, bank statements and duty statements/references for the remaining two years? I'm worried the CO will insist on payslips and P60s, which at the moment I can't provide. I've mailed my old bosses to see if I can get copy payslips, but I'm not holding out much hope... Any advice or help you guys can provide, it's all appreciated!! Cheers Del
  23. I have a masters degree in Civil Engineering from a United Kingdom university obtained in 2010 and I am looking to immigrate to Australia. I do not have a preference as far as what part of Australia I would like to immigrate to as far as I can get a job there. Having visited a few government websites it would seem that years of requisite Civil Engineering experience is mandatory. Can someone please explain if this is the case? Since graduating, I have worked at a College but in the classroom working with learners with additional learning needs but I do not possess a teaching qualification. Can someone please help with information on how best to go about immigrating to Australia and if and how I may be qualified. Thanks.
  24. Hi This is my first post here. I'm a developer programmer with 16 years o experience. I didn't complete the graduation, though. I'm planing to assess my skills and work experience through RPL. So, I can get 10 points for the skills and 10 for 8 years plus experience. Next year I'll get a degree in a closely related area, so I can assess the degree with ACS and update my skills on skillselect and get 15 points in place of ten points from RPL. Am I right? Any thoughts? I'm worried about the work experience, am I going to face any trouble? Is DIAC going to consider my experience as skilled? Thanks in advance!

    Victoria State sponsorship

    Hi all, I'm a software engineer with 3 years of experience, and I'm willing to migrate to Australia. I was thinking of applying for a state sponsorship from Victoria, since I would like to settle in Melbourne under visa sub class 190. The problem I have is that the Victoria state web site mentions that they require minimum of three year of post qualifying experience, which I do not have at the moment. When I met an agent he said I would be able to apply for the state sponsorship from Victoria. Does anyone know whether Victoria strictly look for post qualifying experience? Will I be able to get a sponsorship? Please give me some advice....
