EOI Skilled - Independent (Subclass 189) (Permanent)

Hi

I'm confused. How was the EOI able to calculate that I have 60 points if the department tells me that I have only 50???

My Expression of interest (EOI) on SkillSelect was telling me "The EOI for this subclass is able to be completed. The client's claims equal 60 points."

It didn't ask me anything like how many years I've worked or what I've studied. I just filled in my education and employment history (begin and end date) and it told me that I have 60 points. It didn't ask me anything like the so called "Skill Level Requirement Met Date” which I came to know about today. I didn't provide any false information. I put in what was true and the system calculated the points automatically.

Well when I did my Expression of interest (EOI) on SkillSelect, i got a message saying "The EOI for this subclass is able to be completed. The client's claims equal 60 points." Looking at this I continued with the application and paid all the fees. Now DIBP officer is teeling me that I can only claim 50 points.

If this is true, why did they put a misleading statement on my SkillSelect EOI? Are they trying to rip us off? This is very disappointing and no one from DIBP is getting back to me. Does anyone know how I can start an appeal process to get some of my money back? All this while I thought the $10,000.00 I paid was to get the visa done and not just the processing fee. I mean $10,000.00 for processing and telling me that I don't qualify. This is absolute rip off.

When you complete the EOI, you enter the employment dates based on what was provided in your skills assessment. I believe there are boxes to indicate whether the employment is relevant or not (not 100% sure of this).

If you have 5 years of experience but your skills assessment deems you skilled after 2, then you'd put an adjusted start date of your employment (e.g. instead of saying 2009-2014 you'd put 2011-2014). This way your EOI points will calculate correctly.

Thanks Maggie

The whole EOI and Application process seems to be very complicated. I guess I should have used the services of a migration agent. Atleast that wouldn't have costed me AU$5,000.00.

I hope DIBP make some changes to the actual EOI application on SkillSelect and make it easier to be understood by normal people. I mean they could have stated that we have to change the employment start date according to the ACS Skill Assessment result right? It's unbelievable that such a minor error could have cost me more than AU$5,000.00.

For what kind of reasons that skills assessment authority deduct 2 years from "awsum's" work experience from 5 years to 3 years ? So, usually, will the skills assessment authority deduct 2 years from anyone's work experience? I guess this is because that the assessing authority thinks that anyone is not competent enough until we acquire at-least two year experience in the nominated field.

Thanks

They deducted 5 years from mine since I had a diploma. If you have a degree that is closely related to your field then it will be 2 years.

It depends on the assessing authority and the occupation. Many take the view that you are fully qualified in your occupation once you have a combination of education + experience. In the case of ACS, they publish a matrix and depending on your qualification they then require a specified amount of experience on top. For a degree that is highly relevant to the occupation, they require less experience than if you had a diploma or a degree in an unrelated major.

You need to look at the assessing authority's website to see what the criteria for your occupation is. Then when you get the assessment back it will tell you the date from which are considered qualified, which is the date from which you would begin claiming points.

Thank you for your reply . My occupation is listed in general occupations, and I intend to apply it with a MSc. Further, assessing authority is VETASSESS. But I couldn't find anything about any kind of "matrix" in their website. And suppose I completed my MSc few months back. And I have many years of experience in my nominated field. Hence, do they take into account only the experience recorded after my qualification (ie: only few months as experience)?
