New application after visa refusal

I was refused VE 175 in November 2009, and I am applying again for VE 175.The reason for refusal was that my IELTS score was not before the date of lodgment of my application. The date of my application was 14 August 2008, and IELTS date was November 2009.
I am applying on line and on the form it says that if I have applied for any type of visa before and was refused and if the answer is yes than it asks for description.
My question is that what they mean by description can I copy paste the refusal letter and than also attach it with my application.
Secondly would this refusal have any effects on my current application.? Any other suggestions

You could probably just put in 175 non IELTS compliance and a reference number if on the letter.
If you meet all eligibility requirements now, the past rejection should not be a problem however have you checked out the What's New link re latest priorities and you may want to consider applying for state sponsorship/SMP for higher processing priority, there still being a delay however with states not ready on SMPs introduction.

I meet the eligibility requirements now and was waiting for the states sponsorship also but I turn 34 on October 26.I don't want to cut it to short.
I am classified as Engineering technologist by Engineers Australia any idea if this could be on state sponsorship/SMP program.
Thanks for your advise as always

Impossible to say what the states will do re the SMPs and some may just take the easy way out and go for the Schedule 4 as the states do not carry such huge staff numbers in comparison to Immi., they having them more to process just the sponsorships and keep their sites up to date etc.
On the age, you can turn 34 and you'll still be eligible for the same points until you turn 35, so no great rush re that.

thanks again for clearing that up but the question is can I change from 175 to 176 once I have applied, as Engineering technologist is in both sch 3 and 4

There is a reference in the recent announcement for new priorities, FAQ#19 that you'll find via the What's New Link .
Normally you can apply for a 175 and then get a sponsorship to have a 175 considered as a 176.
But have a read and a link there and I'd contact Immi via the pre lodgement enquiry provision under Contact on the Immi site.
Please post re what they say.

I did but the answer was not really specific, it just explained the different visa types.If I can have your email I will forward it to you.now I am thinking of submitting my application under 175 and than have it converted to 176 if need be.Another thing i wanted to share was after going through the reply, that I might be able to get a refund for my previous application as I did not meet the basic English requirement at the time of application.I am pasting that part for your opinion, as it might help others also


When submitting a General Skilled Migration visa application, you must meet a number of requirements for your application to be considered by a departmental officer. These requirements are referred to as 'validity requirements'.

To make a valid application you must do all of the following:
*indicate the type of visa you wish to apply for
*use the correct form
*provide your residential address
*pay the required visa application charge in Australian dollars
*sign the declaration and acknowledgment parts of the application form
*satisfy any other visa-specific validity requirements - for example, you may have to be in Australia and/or hold a certain type of visa at the time you lodge your application
*mail or courier your application to the correct General Skilled Migration processing centre or
*submit an electronic application via the Internet.

You must ensure that you can meet all these requirements at the time you lodge your application. Any General Skilled Migration visa application that does not meet all of these requirements cannot be considered and, under migration law, you are not taken to have made an application. If this happens, your papers
and any payments made will be returned to you.

You'll see in that second part english is not included and that validity is also in the application section of visas, applicants actually having 28 days to get their IELTS in.
Just do a copy/paste and PM the other bit if you like.

here is the complete text of the email.

************************************************** ******************************
GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION OVERVIEW:

Australia's General Skilled Migration Program is designed to attract people who have skills in particular occupations that are required in Australia. These occupations are listed on the Skilled Occupation List which is available on the department's website at
<http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/sol/>

If you wish to apply under one of the General Skilled Migration visa categories you will need to meet all of the following basic requirements:
*you must be under 45 years of age at the time you apply
*your occupation must be listed on the Skilled Occupation List
*an organisation in Australia, known as the relevant Australian assessing authority, must assess your skills as being suitable for this occupation
*you must have a high level of English
*you must have recent skilled work experience or have recently completed an Australian qualification as the result of the equivalent of at least two (2) academic years of study in Australia, or hold an eligible temporary visa.

SELECTING YOUR BEST VISA OPTION:

If you think you meet all of the basic requirements, the next step is to find the right visa for you. This will depend on your circumstances. Information is available that may assist you in choosing which is the best visa for you.

If you are outside Australia your visa options are outlined in the options given below. Please note that if you apply for one of these visas and your application is approved, you must be outside of Australia for your visa to be granted unless the main applicant is a New Zealand citizen and holds a Special Category Visa (SCV) (subclass 444).

If you are temporarily in Australia studying, working or visiting, you may also be eligible to apply for one of the visas below. However:
*a bridging visa will not be granted to allow you to stay in Australia while your General Skilled Migration visa is being processed
*you must be outside of Australia for your visa to be granted unless the main applicant is a New Zealand citizen and holds a Special Category Visa (SCV) (subclass 444).

If any of the following applies to you, you must be outside Australia when you lodge your General Skilled Migration visa application:
*you have had a visa application refused or cancelled since last entering Australia and you were not subsequently granted another substantive visa
*you have either condition 8503, 8534 or 8535, or another condition, on your current visa that prevents you from making a further application to remain in Australia.

If you are unsure whether your current visa conditions prevent you from applying for a further visa while you are in Australia, you may contact the department on 131 881.

VISAS THAT CAN ONLY BE GRANTED WHILE YOU ARE OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA:

You can select a visa from the three options below which best suits your circumstances:

1) I do not have any relatives in Australia and cannot get state/territory government sponsorship:
*you will need to apply for an 'independent' visa.

A visa option you could consider is the Skilled - Independent (subclass 175) visa. More information on this visa option is available on the department's website at
<http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/175/>

2) I have a relative who is willing and able to sponsor me, and is one of the following:
*an Australian citizen
*an Australian permanent resident
*an eligible New Zealand Citizen
*your relative/sponsor must be related to you or your partner as one of the following:
-parent
-child/adopted child/step child
-brother/sister
-adopted brother/adopted sister
-step brother/step sister
-uncle/aunt
-adopted aunt/adopted uncle
-step aunt/step uncle
-niece/nephew
-adopted niece/adopted nephew
-step niece/step nephew
*your eligible relative can live anywhere in Australia
*your eligible relative must be 18 years of age or older.

A visa option you could consider is the Skilled - Sponsored (subclass 176) visa. More information on this visa option is available on the department's website at

Your relative/sponsor must be related to you or your partner as one of the following:
-parent
-child/adopted child/step child
-brother/sister
-adopted brother/adopted sister
-step brother/step sister
-uncle/aunt
-adopted aunt/adopted uncle
-step aunt/step uncle
-niece/nephew
-adopted niece/adopted nephew
-step niece/step nephew
-grandparent
-first cousin.

Your eligible relative is usually resident in:
-ACT
-South Australia
-Northern Territory
-Tasmania
-Victoria
-Queensland - except Brisbane and the Gold Coast
-New South Wales - except Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong
-Western Australia - except Perth.

You are willing to live in a designated area in Australia for at least two (2) years and work in that area for at least 12 months.

A visa option you could consider is the Skilled - Regional Sponsored (Provisional) (subclass 475) visa. More information on this visa option is available on the department's website at <http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/475/>

3) A state/territory government is willing and able to sponsor me:
*You will need to have obtained sponsorship from an approved state/territory Government agency
*You are willing to live in regional Australia or a low population growth metropolitan area in Australia for at least two (2) years and work in that area for at least 12 months (Skilled - Regional Sponsored visa applicants ONLY).

If you can meet these requirements and obtain at least 100 points on the General Skilled Migration points test, a visa option you could consider is the Skilled - Sponsored (Migrant) (subclass 176) visa or the Skilled - Regional Sponsored (Provisional) (subclass 475) visa. More information on these visa options
is available on the department's website at
<http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/visa-options-outside.htm>
************************************************** ******************************
MAKING A 'VALID' GENERAL SKILLED MIGRATION VISA APPLICATION:

When submitting a General Skilled Migration visa application, you must meet a number of requirements for your application to be considered by a departmental officer. These requirements are referred to as 'validity requirements'.

To make a valid application you must do all of the following:
*indicate the type of visa you wish to apply for
*use the correct form
*provide your residential address
*pay the required visa application charge in Australian dollars
*sign the declaration and acknowledgment parts of the application form
*satisfy any other visa-specific validity requirements - for example, you may have to be in Australia and/or hold a certain type of visa at the time you lodge your application
*mail or courier your application to the correct General Skilled Migration processing centre or
*submit an electronic application via the Internet.

You must ensure that you can meet all these requirements at the time you lodge your application. Any General Skilled Migration visa application that does not meet all of these requirements cannot be considered and, under migration law, you are not taken to have made an application. If this happens, your papers
and any payments made will be returned to you.

You must also meet all of the other visa requirements which are prescribed for the visa that you are seeking. These requirements are referred to as 'visa-specific requirements'. These requirements must be met by you, and by any one else included in your application, in order for your application to be successful and a visa(s) granted.

It is important to understand that if you make a valid application, there is no guarantee that your application will be approved. For this to occur you must not only meet all of the validity requirements but also all of the visa-specific requirements for the visa you apply for. If you do not meet all of the visa specific requirements, your visa application is likely to be refused.

To assist you with finding out more information about the specific validity requirements for the General Skilled Migration visa that is most appropriate for your circumstances, please visit the department's website at
<http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/index.htm>

ONLINE APPLICATIONS

The department accepts scanned copies of the original document (non-certified) provided they are in colour and in PDF, JPEG, TIFF or BMP file formats. If you scan documents in black and white, then they must be scanned copies of the certified copies.

COMPLETE APPLICATIONS:

Whilst there are a number of requirements which must be met for you to make a valid application, you are encouraged to provide complete applications where possible. A complete application is one that includes all information and documents required to make a decision on your application. Submitting a complete application will ensure that your application is processed as quickly as possible.

More information about complete applications (including document checklists which will assist you in lodging a complete application) is available on the department's website at
<http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/index.htm>
