Please Help!

Hi,
I'm just going to ask, my Husband is the primary applicant, while i'm the secondary (my occupation is not on the new SOL)

1. Do I need to take skill assessment test for my husband to gain points? (even if my occupation is not in the new SOL)

2. When i get to fill out the application form, the point assessment part, will i put points for my occupation even if it is not in the new SOL? or i'll just put 0 points on that?

3. We're planning to pass our application, my husband works overseas for 9months contract, is it possible to pass all the requirement first before he leaves again for work? would i have a hard time processing it when he's not here (since he's the primary applicant.) or we just have to inform the CO of our situation?

Thank you so much for any info you can provide. I'm really having a hard time figuring out some technicalities of our application. Thank you so much.

P.S. which application is much better on paper or online? and if it is online, would the documents will be all attachment file or they also require to send via mail?

Have a look at Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175) and you will see all the conditions for Partner skills points to be claimed, the partner needing to have an occupation on the SOL and a skills assessment.
If your husband will struggle to get 120 points you may want to consider him waiting until the State Migration Plans re state sponsorship have been established for it could mean less points being required and a higher priority.
The SMPs will hopefully be set up within several weeks.

Have a read of the processing priority arrangements you will find linked on What's New? Recent Changes in General Skilled Migration

Your husband can be overseas when his application is submitted though if a paper application he will need to sign it, an online application is stated by Immi to be the preferred way and could likely lead to a slight improvement in processing and you do just upload documents and not send them in by mail.

And follow all the information available under the visa you are applying for and make good use of the Checklist in the applying section and you should not have a problem.
Always do a dummie run with the application and just mark off what you need to get and provide as you go through the application so you have it all together when you are prepared to apply online and can upload all documents/information required.

Thank you!

Hi,

Thank you for all your answers. Between me and my husband i have the more higher points however my occupation is not listed already on the NEW SOL. So it will be him who'll be the primary applicant, but he doesn't meet the required points for the Skilled-Immigrant. We're planning to apply for Skilled-Sponsored since i have relatives in Australia. If my occupation is not on the NEW SOL there will be no points for that? I don't want to make mistakes on filling up the application form. because on the form they're still asking for points for the partner. and i don't know if i should put 0 on that because my occupation is not on the new list (i got 50 on my occupation from the old SOL sched 1&2). thank you so much for all your help. appreciate it a lot! Thank you for all the advises, i will do that.

If you are not eligible to claim partner's skill points you cannot claim that on your husband's application.
Do it and the application will be rejected and you will lose the fee.
A relative sponsored visa will be a lower priority than the SMP and wait time could be considerable.
