190 state sponsorship - help!

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I am a nurse with one year's post-grad experience. Since successfully submitting an expression of interest to skill select, 65 points 189 and 70 state sponsored, I have been reading about needing 2 year's experience. This did not impede the EOI and I still got the points. I am registered with AHPRA. Has anyone out there been in a similar situation? Any help appreciated!

Hi Emma, 

The conditions for 190 are different for every state. Victoria does require two years of experience. NSW doesn't but the wait is very long. I've applied for VIC with same point score and they did check my experience.

Thank you so much for your help. I specifically want to live in Melbourne as I have connections there so it's looking like I will have to wait a year? I did work as a HCA during all of my training, but I doubt that qualifies as relevant work experience?

It looks like that but I'm no expert so it might be worth asking a immi lawyer? 

Best of Luck x

When you say training, do you mean you did your bachelor's degree in Australia?. If yes, and less than 2 years ago, then you qualify as a recent graduate and can apply to Victoria without work experience. You'll have to get your skill assessment from anmac first though.

Goodluck

Thank you for your reply. Yes I graduated last year with a bachelor with honours but it was from a UK university. Does that still count? Were you also in that situation?

Unfortunately it doesn't, you're classified as recent graduate of it was from an Australian uni. Otherwise, you'll have to go according to the website. My situation was different from yours, as I completed my degree here in VIC

Thank you for your reply. I started another thread to see if I could qualify for TSS... I think they look for 2 year's experience also but I've seen positive skills assessments used in lieu of this.

Have you considered coming over on a WHV and getting a year experience in Australia instead?

Unfortunately I used my WHV a few years back in an unrelated field. Thanks for your post.
