Really need help with a 462 working visitors visa

Hi All,

I'm currently in the process of researching a 462 Visa for my Girlfriend who lives in the USA. So far all criteria have been met....we've got funds, medical + character is fine, insurance is done....but I've hit a snag.

She hasn't graduated from highschool. She attended highschool until the very end and passed all her classes/exams (have evidence of this) but the year she graduated they introduced an additional set of exams (proficiency exams) to which she failed one(the math one specifically).

Does anyone know or had success with these circumstances? Are you able to provide evidence of other things, such as additional funds/previous job experience/potential job experience etc? I've really got to find a way to make this work but I'm not 100% sure.

Also further to this, is the only way to apply for this visa online? Or are you able still to complete a mailable application?

Thanks for your help.

The 462 is a relatively new visa in relation to agreement with the US and it has been set up with particular eligibility requirements re education levels, something that would have been established in negotiating agreement with the US.
For most visas, eligibility requirements are pretty much set in concrete and ones such as the education standard in this case would have it stated if an exemption was available.
You may have seen in the visa eligibility section it has a phrase under the Education Heading of
You must have graduated from High School or completed an equivalent qualification.
I suppose for $235 you could always test the meaning of " completed an equivalent qualification " in regard to her having completed the studies but not passed all the proficiency exams.
