No qualifications

    Recommended Posts

    Hi I have over 15 years experience in decorating but no official qualifications. Is there anyone that has been in a similar position that has been successful in obtaining a visa. 

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    People go through extreme measures and study towards getting a qualification just to qualify for a visa . There's no easy route unfortunatley. Maybe contact a mara agent for expert advice

    For some occupations it is possible to substitute experience for qualifications. Don’t just go and get the qualifications without seeking advice as you could be worse off as experience points can only be counted for post qualification experience. 

    So if they deem  day 5 years experience in lieu of qualification you can still claim 10 years experience. If you take a qualification now you will have no post qualification experience to claim. 

    You need to check with the assessment body for your occupation for details. 

    You also need to check if it is still on the list of occupations required for a visa and what type of visa you can apply for. 


    So many wineries ......so little time :yes:
