I was just confuse on which type of visa to apply if you have an occupation of historian / university lecturer? Or having an occupation like this should be nominated by state territory? Thank you...I hope somebody will give me insights with regards to this matter...thanks Australia forum..your such a big help in guiding me for my visa application

Hi Smiley -

If you have an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) and have IELTS test results of 6 or more on all bands and a positive skills assessment, you can then lodge an Expression of Interest (EOI) and await an invitation to apply for the subclass 189 independent skilled visa. There is no guarantee you'll get an invitation - it's based on your points test score.

If your occupation is on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List (CSOL) and you have the IELTS and skills assessment as above, you can lodge an EOI and apply to an Australian state or territory for sponsorship for the subclass 190 State/Territory Sponsored Skilled Visa if the state is currently sponsoring for your occupation (not all states sponsor all occupations on the CSOL list). Sometimes states add additional requirements for certain occupations, such as IELTS 7 instead of 6, etc. If you get sponsored by a state, then your EOI generates an invitation based on that sponsorship and you can then apply for the 190 visa.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you Mr. Northam....your information given was very helpful in my initial step of my Australian visa application. Am I right that the application for visa 190 is much more longer compared to visa 189? And a friend of mine from Australia told me its quite hard for me to be sponsored since the government will utilized first the Australian citizen for that particular occupation? How possible that applicants from outside Australia will get sponsored? Thank you

Hi -

The major difference is that the 190 application requires a successful state/territory sponsorship. If a state or territory has an occupation on their skills in demand list, that means they are willing to sponsor non-Australians to work in that occupation. So it might be helpful to check the Skilled Migration websites for the Australian states you are considering, and see what occupations why have on their Migration Plan pages or occupation list pages - that would indicate what occupations they are currently sponsoring non-Australians for.

Best,

Mark Northam

Now I understand a bit. With regards to chosen occupation, will I only select one occupation? Since there were occupation that is somehow connected with other occupation? Like for example, I am a historian graduate but my job experiences relied heavily on teaching at the university (history subjects)? Or the occupation should I choose should so somehow connected with my occupation?

Hi Smiley -

For an Australian immigration application, you'll need to choose one occupation - the occupation that your educational qualifications and work experience best qualify you for. That will be the occupation that determines the skills assessment authority and requirements, etc.

Best,

Mark Northam

In my EOI, will I specify which among the Australian state will I choose (in accordance to their demand in occupation list) or my application will just be open among the 6 states and ey will be the one to invite me if ever ill pass their qualifications? Thank you

Hi Smiley -

In your EOI you would specify which state you prefer, making sure it is a state that is currently sponsoring for your occupation (not all states sponsor all occupations on the CSOL list - you need to check with the state directly to confirm that they are sponsoring, and that they don't have any additional requirements above the DIAC minimums).

Then, you would prepare a state sponsorship application package and make application to the state for sponsorship. If you are approved for sponsorship, they would then cause the DIAC system to issue you an invitation right away based on your EOI.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Smiley -

Yes. But make sure you take notice of each State's requirements, sponsorship application process, and especially any additional requirements (like IELTS 6.5 or 7) that some states add on top of DIAC's requirements.

Best,

Mark Northam
