189,190,489 Visa Application

G'Day Everyone

I'm about to start the process of applying for a 189,190,489 Visa (which ever is more favorable in my circumstances)

I am confident that i meet the points criteria required.
Age(26) - 30
English (Superior) - 20
Australian work experience in nominated occupation (3 Years) - 10
AQFIII/IV completed in Australia - 10

The hiccup that I have is some of the work experience obtained in Australia was done while overstaying on my initial student visa.

Im currently in the exclusion period of 3 years since November 2014 and was also wondering if this would hurt my chances of getting said visas.

All in all, i really do not wish to outlay this kind of money to get the ball rolling when it was doomed from the start.

Thanks in advance for all advice and knowledge shared.
Regards
Spencer

I assume you can't apply for a 489 since it's a temporary visa which would usually be unavailable to you due to the 3-year ban. I don't know if there is any issue with claiming employment where you were unlawfully in the country. That may be a question for a migration agent. You would have 60 points without that experience, so depending on which occupation you're applying under, you may still be able to get an invitation without claiming the employment.

You cannot claim any work experience gained in Australia, if you did not have a valid visa with permission to work at the time.

You'd need to check the skills assessor's website for their fees. English test fees would depend on which test you take, but you can likely find this information on the test provider's website.
