My husband's got a job in Perth, WA last August and the process of collecting everything we needed ( IELTS, documents, sponsorship renewal, visa changes etc.) took almost a year, not only on our side, but also the company's side. SO, finally, last week, we contact his director in Perth and he says he'll start the process of visa application this week and it's all good and we have every single document, but the thing that's bothering me is SKILL ASSESSMENT. My husband's nominated position is Telecommunications Field Engineer. He has 3 years of experience in this job, has IRATA lvl. 2 certificate, rope access certification, construction card, RF awareness, first aid and CPR and working at heights certificate. He doesn't have a university degree, instead he has a high school diploma in Mechanical Engineering. His director has been through more than 20 visa applications so far and he ASSURES us that skill assessment is not needed and that none of the workers he had nominated before needed it. I am a bit confused, because I am fully aware of the regulations and requirements, and there is no information that skill ass. is NOT needed. The visa is 482, Medium Stream for 4 years. Can anyone explain why my husband or any other worker before (on 457 visa) didn't have to go through this assessment? Thank you!

Hi Natasha,

I had a look on the home affairs website. With regards to Skills, Qualification and employment back ground it advises:

If you are the primary visa applicant, you are required to demonstrate that you have the skills and experience necessary to perform the occupation.

Some applicants must undertake a skills assessment to demonstrate this – see Skills Assessment below.

If it is not mandatory for you to undertake a skills assessment, you are still required to provide other evidence to demonstrate that you meet these requirements. This may include, but is not limited to:

a copy of relevant qualification certificates (professional and educational)
a copy of any required registration/licensing
previous employment references
your curriculum vitae or resumé
previous employment references.
In addition, all primary TSS visa applicants need to demonstrate that they have two years' work experience in the nominated occupation or a related field.

Refer to url: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/...ackground.aspx

I do not think that Telecommunications Field Engineer is mandatory for Skills assessment - but if you are not sure I would recommend using a migration agent.

Thank you! That makes sense, I just needed someone to confirm my doubts. Hopefully everything goes without problems and unnecessary delay.

hi i initially applied for 482 visa last april 15, received request for additional docs (police checks) on april 24. Unfortunately the police check took 6weeks so I sent it last may 31. On my immiaccount it still stays further assessment. It is kind of frustrating because my work suppose to start last May 7. Anybody received their visa already?

MarkZ 06-12-2018 01:25 PM

Hi Everyone! I applied the 482 subsequent entrant for my wife. The agent applied on the 28 March. And it still shows received on my immi account. Should I be worried?

One of the police clearances I need can't go forward until I have a letter from Australian immigration requesting it, but I haven't gotten this yet. Tried filling in the webform but couldn't actually get to a form, and when I called (11:22 local time, 13:24 ACT) it said the office was closed.

Hi, just wanted to ask if you already supplied all the police checks? Any new from the immigration?

tataaa 06-13-2018 01:27 AM

Hi all, is it worth trying to call the overseas number hotline for updates?

Hi MarkZ, did you supply all required info? police check, medical etc?

tataaa 06-13-2018 03:29 AM

hi Cva2018, just wanted to ask if you certified copies online or just scanned the original docs?
