Question Work experience

Good day.

I have a question regarding recent work experience.

I would like to submit my application for Skilled independent visa with occupation in which I have over 10 years of work experience but I didn't work in it for some 5 years.

Can I claim points for this or not?

Best regards,
Milos

If you have a look at the eligibility requirements for a skilled visa via. Department of Immigration & Citizenship you'll see that you need recent experience as a mandatory no points requirement and then any points for greater experience also has a recency requirement.
So answer to your question is No and it would seem an application may not be successful.

Thank you for reply.

I was afraid of that question, but after posting I have visited ACS website regarding ICT qualifications in which I could claim 18 years worth of work experience points.

Since I have no university education for 261111 ICT BUSINESS ANALYST or 261112 SYSTEMS ANALYST or 261313 SOFTWARE ENGINEER and have a few Microsoft and Cisco certificates and I try my application with them?

In information technology I have experience fresh as from today and continuous in last 18 years.

Hi liberum

Did you try finding an employer and then getting a sponsorship .. that way you get additional 10 points.

Seeing your experience I am sure that's an easy route.

Please share your experience if you already tried that.

Thanks

I'm trying, constantly but still no luck.

All employers wants you to have work permit before they give you a possition.

Australian Experience

Hi,
I have a small query regarding Visa 885.
I have got a positive assessment from ACS, i also have considered my experience while submitting the assessment. ACS didn't consider my australian experience and wrote "Not Relevant to Nominated Occupation" as i didn't have 2 years of Australian Experince. But gave a positive assessment for my Australian Education.
My question is will this note from ACS in the assessment letter would be a problem while the processing of Australian Experience 10 points.
I have all reference letter from Employer and 1.5 years of Pay Slips.
