Hi ,

I have few queries relating to ACS skills assessment and applying for PR(Permanent Residence) with the new rules with effect from july 2011 .

I am from India . I am 25 yrs old . I have done my four years bachelors degree in Information Technology from a reputed university . I passed out in 2007 and currently working as Software engineer (Java Programmer ) with a reputed MNC . I currently have a total of 3 yrs and 6 months of experience as Java programmer .

I have planned to apply for Skilled Independent visa (Subclass 175) or sponsored skilled migrant visa (subclass 176) .

First , I have to get my skills assessed by ACS(Australian Computer Society) . I came to know that I need to have these requirements ,

* 4 yrs study .
* 4 yrs of work experience in relevance.

With the new rules change with effect from July 2011 , points are being awarded for those who have 3 yrs of overseas experience .

My question is why is 4yrs of work exp required by ACS when there is only 3 yrs mentioned for PR in points calculation . Is 4 yrs of work experience mandatory by ACS even now ? . Any rules changed with ACS related to work experience ? .

And calculating points with new rules from July 2011 , points are no more awarded for sponsored by family members . I have my sister living in melbourne who is holding a PR . will I get the 10 points for being sponosred by eligible family member with new rules ?

I am planning to land in aus for 1yr Masters to further sharpen my skills in feb 2012 .Will there be any issues in applying PR ? Will I be able to apply as Onshore candidate once I come there ? .

My aim is to pursue my career to the best level and settle down there at the earliest .

If you have any other smart ways , Please let me know .
Your assistance is much appreciated .

Regards,
Syed Imran J

The requirement for experience by ACS is their requirement for occupational assessment and Immi have their points eligibility system for all professions/trades and it is as simple as that.
With points not awarded for family sponsorship, you will not get points for your sister being here and to apply onshore for a skilled visa you need to have studied here for two years on an approved course.

Thanks Wanderer .

I think I will have to apply as Offshore candidate . I will be able to make up with the new points system .

Going through the ACS docs , found out that

Category A :
* If ICT qualification , nominated occupation and work experience are all related to Information Technology , then only two years of work experience is required .

Category B :
* If ICT qualification is not relevant to work experience , then 4 yrs is required .

I fall in category A .

My role as Java Developer , building , implementation and testing of software applications and also related to domain "Identity and Access Management" .

Could you please confirm If only 2yrs required . ?
Can I go ahead applying ANZCO Software Engineer - 261313 as nominated occupation ?.


Thanks and Regards,
Syed Imran

That is up to the ACS in looking at your degree and experience.
You need an assessment to submit along with all other documents to make an application.
