Hi Rajj -

Welcome to the forum. For skilled migration there are potentially 3 different sets of regulations you have to meet for skills assessment, state sponsorship and for the visa application itself from DIAC (Australian immigration). In most cases, only work that is done after the date that the skills assessor determines that the applicant is "skilled" is counted for points for DIAC, or to meet state sponsorship work requirements if there are any. So a good first step is to consult with the skills assessor and see if you can determine from their website what date may be determined by them to be the date that the applicant is "deemed as skilled". There's another thread on this topic at the moment that you may find interesting.

In many professions, a relevant Bachelor degree is required, after which the applicant is deemed as skilled, however ACS who does skills assessments for IT professions last year decided that depending on the degree, some of the first work experience after graduation may not be skilled and has a policy of declaring that 0, 2, 4 or another number of years of work experience post-graduation is not yet "skilled". Best to consult with the ACS website to get all the specifics of their policies in this regard.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Azeemjaved -

This will depend on the date that the skills assessor determines that you were "skilled" as of. Work after that date will count for points; work before that date will not. My guess is that the date you are deemed to be skilled will be after your 5 year degree, and not after only completing the 3 year diploma.

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Azeemjaved -

You can only count one diploma or degree for points in the section where you are awarded points for having a degree (note: this is not the Australia Study Req section, this is the "Education" section) - if you claim 15 points for your bachelor degree, you cannot claim a further 10 points for the diploma, sorry!

The skills assessor will determine the date that they consider you as "skilled". Any work experience that is closely related to your nominated occupation AFTER that date can be claimed for points on the work experience sections (offshore & in Australia), but any work experience BEFORE that date cannot be claimed for points.

Best,

Mark Northam

Thank you very much for your kind reply MR Mark.I currently have 45 points for the age and degree, 5 points for 3 year work experience and struggling to achieve Proficient level in 'IELTS', making total 60 points, Is there anything else can you advise about visa class 189 ?

Have you carefully studied all the requirements of the skills assessment organisation for your nominated occupation? Sometimes those can be more problematic than the DIAC requirements for points...

Best,

Hi Rajj -

It may not be. There are a great many fraudulent documents being provided to DIAC these days, and as a result DIAC is being tougher on documentation requirements and in many cases is requiring proof that an applicant actually engaged in paid work for the company, so they are often asking for payslips, tax records, etc to evidence employment - not just a referral letter. They are also contacting the persons who write referral letters very frequently now to confirm that the letter is genuine.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
