For rural SA, consider subclass 187 Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS) employer sponsored PR visa. Still will likely take several months for approval, so 457 good in the meantime if you need to be working ASAP.

Happy to help!

Actually we are not in the hurry but would like to be there in around 5-6 months time. It's just we would like to try for another baby in about a year time and we want the baby to have PR or web citizenship as we would like to live in Australia

I appreciate your help Mike.

Hi Mark

I just need some help on lodging my skilled independent visa application. I am a CIMA qualified management accountant. I have completed the exams of CIMA is November 2007. I was employed from January 2007 onwards as a contractual -Finance Trainee in the finance department of a multinational organization. I was made permanent in June 2008 and till now i am employed there.
I applied for CIMA membership after completing the practical experience requirement and was admitted to membership in July 2011.
My question is if I am claiming points for work experience, can I claim the work experience from November 2007 onwards, and will that be acceptable to DIAC ? I already have a skill assessment done by CPA.
Pls help

Thanks
Ashanidcd

Hi Ashanidcd -

Great question! To answer it I need to know a bit more about your situation. Specifically, can you tell me what educational qualification(s) you have, and when you completed them?

Best,

Mark Northam

Yes,
Actually I am a CIMA Accountant (Charterd Institute of Management Accountants) UK.
I have completed all the CIMA examinations in November 2007.(I have transcript from CIMA to prove this) These professional bodies a practical experience requirement which has to be completed in order to become a member. That is 3 years of relevant work experience.
I have been employed in the finance department from January 2007 onwards, I stared as a contract employee (Paid) and got permanent in June 2008.
I obtained the professional membership in July 2011. I got a positive skilled assessment done from CPA for accountant general occupation last November. On the points based test if I am to claim points for work experience, which should be post qualified, can I claim experience soon after I completed the exams, ie from Nov 2007?

Hi -

Sorry if I was unclear - do you have any degrees or formal educational qualifications in addition to the CIMA, for instance, a Bachelor Degree, etc? Sometimes this comes into play in these situations. Is the CIMA equivalent to a degree or diploma of some kind? Sorry for the confusion - just trying to clarify.

Best,

Mark Northam

Yes in my skill assessment my qualifications were assessed by CPA as equivalent to a Australian Bachelor degree, the assessment result was " Academically suitable to migrate under the occupation Accountant general" I do not have any other degree (academic qualification)

Hi -

I don't have enough info about your cases to give you a specific recommendation, but my view is that all work experience you gained after you completed your CIMA requirements (the ones that the skills assessment said were equivalent to an Australian Bachelor) would be considered relevant experience in terms of the points test. This is the rule for work experience gained after a formal academic qualification like a Bachelor degree, and I see no reason why it could not be argued in your case should they have an issue with it.

That being said, there are points test assessments available from most skills assessment authorities, and in some cases from VETASSESS, so you may want to explore those options just in case.

I hope this helps!

Best,

Mark Northam
