Work Experience requirement (class 189)

I am new to this forum from Lahore,Paksitan and i am planning to apply for immigration under Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189).I've got 8.0 each in IELTS out of 9.0.I'm completing my graduation in July 2016 in Software Engineering.I've worked as a Web Engineer from June 2011-July 2012 in a British Software House before starting my degree.
My Question is:
-Is My Experience before Graduation valid for Subclass 189,Like one year is experience essential?

Thank you very much,
Jawad Kazim

You will need to check what is required for the skills assessment for your occupation. Each occupation is different. Most require several years post qualifacation experience.

You can look at the occupation list for your occupation, and beside that it will show the relevant skills assessor - then check the skills assessor's website to see what the requirements are. For example, Software Engineer would be assessed by ACS (and would require at least 2 years relevant work experience). Web Designer is only on the CSOL so would only be eligible for a sponsored visa, and would be assessed by Vetassess (I don't know what may be required for work experience).

Hi There,

Need some help. Quick questions :-

1) I submitted the EOI on may 13 with 75 points, and unfortunately the seats for my job code 2631 were all exhausted as per may 11 results. So now the new seats will come up in july . Can I expect to get an ITA on July 6 th ?

2) I am getting the PCC ready in the meantime. Medicals can only be after I get the hap id, correct ?

3) How long does it take to get a CO assigned after you make the payment ? Current trend says max 6 weeks . Is the trend gonna change from July ?

4) How long does it take for the visa grant after the CO is assigned? I read that CO to visa duration is approximately 3 months, if all your documentation is complete.

Thanks much
