Thumbs up Expression of Interest - SkillSelect


I am successful in filling almost 75% of the EOI and having doubts about 25%, which I would like to get it clarified from you.

My details: I have 65 points (7 band IELTS + ACS recognized 5 years experience + 31 years of current age + AQF Bachelor degree with Major in computing).

Question 1: I wanted to apply for Independent category, but CAN I or SHOULD I apply for multiple visa types? Can anyone please explain as much as possible on this. I have doubts like the following: Should I select employee sponsored only if I already have a job offer? or is it something like, it is a way to express my desire for an employer to sponsor me? Secondly, If I select both Independent and State/Territory/Regional and if I get an invitation from State/Territory/Regional can I ignore them and go ahead with Independent. Basically how does this whole thing work?

Question 2:
1) Family members: Are they any family members the client would like to include in a future application? Yes (I want to take my wife and infant son)
2) How many family members? 2 (assuming wife + son = 2)
3) Would the client be accompanied by the client's partner in a future application? Yes (assuming wife will travel along with me)
Are my above answers correct?
How can my include my father, mother and unmarried sister?

Question 3:
1) Regarding educational qualifications, I assume I will have to enter details from secondary education till highest degree. I have studied subjects like Maths, Science, Social, English and a regional language. So what should I write in the field "Course name"?
2) What should I write for "Campus"? Is the name of the City/place where I did the course?
3) I have in my certificates only month and year of starting and completing, so how do I take care of day in dd/mm/yyyy?
4) Does secondary level mean 10th standard or it includes 8th, 9th and 10th? Because I have a certificate from government only for 10th standard.
5) I have done my highest degree as "Bachelors in Computer Science and Engineering" and ACS has classified it as AQF Bachelor degree with Major in computing. So should I call the category of degree as "Others" or consider it as "Science"?

Question 4: Skill assessment: Nominated occupation?
ACS has approved me for "261313 (Software Engineer ) of ANZSCO Code". So what exactly should I write, only the code or only name or code + name.

Question 5: Regarding employment details, I am planning to be safe by writing only those details what ACS has approved. But ACS has sent the result sheet on August 31st 2013 and said the relevant experience can be considered after October 2007 . Should I write October 2007 till August 2013 or October 2007 till date? There by showing continuing experience? And how can I prove it?

Most important: In case if my EOI is accepted and I get an invitation and if I pass the visa criteria + police clearance + medicals, I understand I need to land in Australia within 6 months from the date of visa invitation letter. But how long MUST I stay in Australia before I can come back to my home country. Reason being, I am planning to just get the visa, but migrate later. I do not want to quit from my current job.

I know the list of questions is huge, but I am sure many would be benefited if you answer all my questions.

Thanks and Best Regards,

A long list of questions. Anyway, will try to answer at least one question.

You do not need to land in Australia in 6 months. The initial entry date is based on expiry of your PCC or Medicals whichever is first. And you just have to make an entry, there is no minimum time of stay. Fly back straight from the airport if you want.
