Evidence of Employment - 12 out of 24 months prior to lodgement date

Hi, I am an ICT Professional with 11 years ICT work experience as an ICT Business Analyst from 1997 to 2009, with Master of Science in Managing Information Technology, 2006, Masters in Business Administration, 2005 and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, 1996.

I have received my positive ACS Skills Assessment on 28 April 2010. However, due to the changes in immigration rules in 1 July 2010, my application was also put on-hold while I was waiting for the release of the State Migration Plans for Victoria on November 2010. From the 1st of July til October 2010, no State Sponsorship applications were accepted. I have applied for Victoria State Sponsorship as soon as it was released on November 2010 and received positive sponsorship letter on 8 March 2011.

Currently, my points total to 120 points. 20 points higher than the cut-off of 100 points for a 176 Skilled Sponsored visa application.

My last employment as an ICT Business Analyst was from 10 April 2007 to 01 May 2009. Apparently, I have to move to a different country to be with my husband after getting married and didnít have any employment after the move as I was just settling down.

I have lodged an on-line application for the Skilled Sponsored Visa application (176) on 15 March 2011. As of 28 March 2011, a Case Officer has been assigned and is currently requesting evidence of employment.

I would like to request for your kind assistance to clarify whether my last employment would satisfy the condition "12 months out of 24 months employment prior to lodgement date (15 March 2011)".

Looking forward to receiving your response. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

The two years is that prior to when you applied and so for your situation it is from 15 Mar 2009 until 15 Mar 2011 and if your last employment ceased on 01 May 2009, you will not have had 12 months employment within the 24 prior to application.

hi Wanderer, thank you for your immediate response and clarification. May I ask another one? On the ACS letter, it says:

" Based on the provided certified documentation, it is the opinion of the ACS that the applicant has 12 months experience in SAP. " - dated April 2010

Will this statement from ACS help to satisfy the condition of 12 months out of 24?

I am asking this question so that we can determine our next step which is either:
1) to ask the Case Officer to consider this statement from ACS or
2) withdraw our application (even though successful State Sponsorship letter, ACS Skills Assessment and IELTS results 7.5 have all been provided)

What would you suggest? If in case we decide to withdraw because our application is invalid due to this ineligibility, is there any way to get a refund? Thank you in advance for your help.

Getting an assessment from ACS is one step towards immigration but the immigration regulations are fixed by legislation and I doubt the ACS comment will carry any weight.
Unfortunately you do not meet one of the mandatory requirements and as such it is likely your application will be rejected.
Though you can consider advising on withdrawal and requesting a refund, the latter is also not likely to occur, especially seeing as your application has already entered the assessment process.

Thank you for the clarification, Wanderer. It is unfortunate indeed that I may not meet one of the mandatory requirements, although my points total to 120. I guess, the next thing to do is to re-apply once I have achieved a minimum of 12 months recent experience or let my husband apply as primary applicant as he has 12 years of Professional Civil Engineer experience and he has been working continuously, 12 out of 24 months.

Our primary concern now is what is the next best step to do - which is not to have a record of "refusal". Thus, we are considering of advising for a withdrawal, if the above-mentioned is not acceptable. The refund would be good for us, of course, but it has now become of secondary concern. Thank you too for your advise that, in this case, we may not be able to get it.
