Hi Mark,

I have a similar case where my educational background is different from my work experience , I have done my 3years Bachelor's of Science in Physics and working in IT as software engineer. I have 6 years of experience and I understand that I will have to assess my skills from ACS and then assess my educational qualification from VETASSESS . Now my question is will I be able to score points for my work experience i.e. 6 years under the Points system which will fetch me 10 points or is the work experience adjusted against education and will not be claim points

Thanks.

Hi!
My boyfriend has a degree in Bussiness Informatics, we were thinking to apply for a 489 visa because we have family there and to confirm his degree as a Systems Analist. Should we follow the same procedure as mentioned above, to send documents to ACS? How much does the assessment cost? Thank you

You don't the family to prove the degree. For ACS assessment, you just need to send them your documents and they will assess the degree on the basis of the evidence provided. The ACS assessment will cost you around $450 AUD.

Thanks,
Tariq

I know that we don't need the family to prove the degree, I just mentioned that 489 is the type of visa that we are aiming for. Thanks for the reply. If he gets the assessment done, we are more likely to get the visa, isn't it right? His IELTS and work experience of 5 years, and his age (he's 28) plus his grandparents down under - that should be it? What do you think? His job is on the SOL list, mine too - I'm an ESL teacher (work experience 3 years, 25 years old).
Thanks!

Before getting a visa. You will require to get a invitation against your EOI. You haven't mentioned his IELTS score. If its overall 7, then you'll receive 5 points for it, however if its overall 8, then you'll receive 8 points for it. An overall 6 will make you eligible for applying but you'll not receive any points for that, and less than 6 will not make you eligible. Your occupation being on SOL will not help unless you've also got a positive assessment from your required assessing authority. If you apply and get a positive assessment for your skills and get an IELTS score of overall then you can add an extra 5 points to his application.

From your information i can make the following points for you:

Age - 30
IELTS - Overall 6 - 0
Overall 7 - 10
Overall 8 - 20

Work Experience - 10
Education - 15
Nomination - 10.

You need at least 60 points to be eligible and my calculation shows that you are already eligible even without the IELTS but a 7 on IELTS will make your points as 75 which is very good.

So, go ahead with the assessment and once you get a positive assessment, lodge the EOI and apply for nomination. Once you receive the nomination, you'll have to update your EOI with nomination details and you'll receive the invitation to apply for visa. Apply for visa with all the required documents and you are good to go.

Hope it clarifies your case.

One point to emphasize is that for any of the IELTS scores mentioned for skilled visas, the average score is meaningless - the score in any of these cases must be on all 4 bands - ie, 6 or higher on all 4 bands to qualify; 7 or higher on all 4 bands to get the extra 10 points, etc.. Some people might consider the "overall" score to be the average score, which would not be applicable.

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you for your kind reply.
There are several other issues that concern me regarding this type of visa - 489. I hope you could clarify those for me.
1. Do we need to have a certain amount of money on our bank account if we have a family there that can guarantee for us. And if we do, how much money do we need to have in order to be eligible for obtaining a visa?
2. Does my partner has to have a job offer from a company or an employer from Australia for this type of visa?
3. Do I have to sit for IELTS also, since I have a BA in English language and literature?
4. Will we have to prove that we are in fact in a relationship, since we are not married? Or it should be easier to apply for a visa when we finally marry? What would be the best solution? And if we have to prove our relationship, how should we do it - by attaching some photos or what...
5. How do we submit an EOI, online - by e-mail or by post? What should we write in it, is there some example how should it look like? Is that where we should send our CVs and personal letter, explaining why do we want to move down there and what do we expect etc.
6. How do we prove our relationship to our sponsor - which documents should my boyfriend and his family submit?
7. His grandparents live in Melbourne, is it a designated area for this type of visa?
8. If we get refused, do we pay the same amount of money every other time when we apply for a visa and do we get the explanation why we got refused?

Thank you guys all soooo very much, this place has been the only one where I got the answers that I needed and I know that you will help me once again.

Bye,
Jasna
