Skill Select process..

Hi There,

Very new to this forum and hoping to be a regular visitor.

I am about to embark on the SkillSelect application process for the following visa types:

Subclass 189 Skilled Independent (Permanent)
Subclass 190 Skilled Nominated (Permanent)
Subclass 489 Skilled Regional Nominated or Sponsored (Provisional)

Does anyone have any experience with this and/or advice to give if having their skills assessed by the ACS (ANZSCO Code: 261111)? Tips that might help the application?

Thanks for any info in advance and hope your applications are successful

MylesT

Hi Myles -

Read the ACS documentation very carefully - they can be very strict. Especially make sure you understand their view of the different IT occupations and the specific duties for each - a common issue with ACS is applying under the wrong occupation code where your actual duties and experience conform with a different code than the one you applied under.

Make sure all your employer documents are exactly to specs, etc. Also, the 189 and 190 are quite different - the 189 requires no state sponsorship, but the 190 and 489 do - the state sponsorship process is also quite specific.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi,

I'm just about to log my EOI on Skill Select, applying for the 190 with 223311 ANZSCO, how long do you think before I hear back from them?

Thanks,

Earl

Hi Earl -

If you have completed your skills assessment and have already received an approved sponsorship from the state/territory you've applied to (a real sponsorship, not a "we like you but we'll put you on our waiting list" response), the invitation from DIAC should be coming very shortly since the key to the 190 visa is the state sponsorship approval.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,


Thanks for your reply, I don't have an approved state sponsorship as yet, but have received a "Positive" on my skill assessment from Vetassess.

The consultant says that they will wait for a response and then apply for a state sponsorship.

Is that how it works?

Thanks,

Earl

Hi Earl -

Sorry, I'm confused - wait for a response from whom? Who does the consultant work for - you or someone else? Let me know and I can assist further.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,


Now your reply has confused me , what is the process once you lodge an EOI, do you have to wait for an invitation?

I was checking my points and I currently score 75, inclusive of 5 for state sponsorship.

Thanks,

Earl

Hi Earldro -

Sorry, didn't mean to confuse you!

You are applying for the subclass 190 state/territory sponsored skilled visa from what you posted earlier, correct? Assuming that is correct, you need to:

1. Get IELTS scores of 6 or better on all bands
2. Get positive skills assessment results
3. Lodge EOI
4. Complete and lodge state sponsorship application package
(sometimes steps 3 and 4 are reversed depending on the state)
5. Once you have approval of state sponsorship, they should generate invitation for your EOI
6. Once you receive invitation, complete all visa application forms as per instructions on online Skillselect system and pay visa application fee to DIAC
7. Wait for visa application approval

Hope this helps - please advise any questions if your visa consultant cannot answer for you.

Best,

Mark Northam
