Introduction perdu50 aka Jeremy

Hi everyone,

My name is Jeremy, I am 29 and unfortunately, all I can do for now is dream of Australia from my homeland, France.

I have spent almost 2 years and a half in your beautiful country between 2009 and 2012. My two working holiday visas weren't enough so I came back and visited friends as a tourist!

During my stay, I fell in love with Australia and all it has to offer. Its incredible cultural mix (provided by both Australians and backpackers), its endless green and wild spaces (France now seems crowded to me) and the relaxed, down to earth way of life, all these elements make Australia a very special place. Have I mentioned the weather and the flourishing economy?

Originally trained as an export assistant, I discovered through my farm work experience how rewarding manual work can be. That is why I followed a metal fabrication/boiler making training course when I got back in France and obtained a diploma a year ago.

I recently realised these new skills might help me working in Oz again.

I am now trying to figure out how to optimize my chances to obtain a Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 189).

My English being a bit rusty, I would like to make sure I truly understand the rules. Of course, my quest for information raised questions:

Is a 3 years minimum professional experience required or is there a way to come as a "beginner" and gain such experience in Australia? (I have only been working in the metal industry for a few months)

Testing my English level through the IELTS seems to be a mandatory step of the visa application process. When reading about IELTS, I realized there are two different tests: General and Academic. Which one am I supposed to take?

Regards.

You will need to get the experience in order to pass the skills assessment.

In the mean time, you will just have to hope the occupation stays on the skills list

That's a very clear answer. Thank you Verystormy.

3 years, am I right?

If so, I'll have time to practice my English for the IELTS.

It us usually 3 years. Though also bear in mind your points. Many people need more than 3 years in order to get points

Thanks again for your time. If my estimation is right, points shouldn't be a problem. Of course it all depends on my IELTS score but the results I got practicing weren't bad. Have a good evening/day? my european friend
