Help with 491 Visa to SA as a Chef

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

We are looking to make the move to Oz.  We have family in Adelaide who will sponsor us and our aim is to settle there.  We are both 43 yrs old so I believe the new 491 visa is the way to go as it gives us enough points to get there.  However, before I go through all the motions I was wondering if anyone can offer some advice.  My wife's skill is a Chef and she has been employed in the catering industry for over 10 years.  She did do an apprenticeship program for a Hotel & Restaurant company back in the 90's which was an "in-house program" however she cannot find any documentation for this and the Hotel has since closed up shop over 15 years ago. Shes currently working as a Head Chef for a restaurant cafe which shes done now for about 5 years.  

My question is, will the skills assessment require evidence of the apprenticeship in order for us to proceed or will references from my current employer be sufficient.  Alternatively, what other evidence would they require. Is the assessment done thru Vetassess or TRA.  In regards to the English test, what is the minimum score to satisfy the Visa requirements.  I only ask as my wife has dyslexia.

Thanks in advance

Chris
