OmogeNG,

Thank you... Well written response.

But note that the exchange rate for Naira to AUD is more than 140. The rate doesn't follow what is on currency converter.

Tunai, I have no idea about PTE. You probably may get someone to answer it.

@Apolonius,

You will be better off with the solicitor. I think the law society in Australia gives preference for UK qualified legal professionals. The teaching will be a long thing as the body responsible will want you to have a teaching qualification.

I read something about registering as a lawyer for foreign qualified lawyers, I should still have the documents in my system. There is a different assessment rating for UK qualified people.


Thank you. Grateful.

Nobody can predict whether your occupation will be included in the CSOL for the next financial year. Nobody! My occupation, Electronic Engineer has been flagged as endangered for 3 years but it is still included every year on SOL.

Try and read immigration threads for hints but you cannot be certain.
Re: General Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa Through Skilled Migration. by okpas12: 11:22am On Apr 21, 2016

I must commend the poster and creator of this thread @bellong for taking it upon urself to compile this.... Kudos

Checking d SOL and CSOL, I found my skill which is MARKETING SPECIALIST (ANZSCO Code 225113)
Marketing Specialist is assessed by VETASSESS. But the last time I checked the ANZSCO search site, No state was sponsoring it and it not eligible for 189 subclass so I pulled back.

Tried checking back today and I found out Northern Territory is now sponsoring it since dey just update their NT Migration Occupation List.

I have my docs/requirement ready.

What chance do I have knowing that its only being sponsored by a state??.

I already have 45points with my age, Edu. qualification and work experience.

Thanks
please dg8est, how where you able to find a state sponsoring your skill

Thanks alot for ur response. Its clearer now. Ur reaponse has raised one more question though. Does it mean that after paying the exam fees u might still not be seen as qualified to write it...then what happens to the fees paid?
Thanks for ur response once again.
OmogeNG:


No. It means graduates of those schools do not need to write an examination. Graduates of Vet from schools not listed there, have to put in a request for the exam by submitting a couple of documents and paying the fee. Once they are assessed as qualified to write the exam, they will be given the go ahead.

The exam is in 2 phases....basically theory and practical....but at different times. Once you pass both components, you are then eligible to register, which in turn makes you eligible for a skill assessment.

Skill assessment is what is required at the visa application stage.
Re: General Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa Through Skilled Migration. by chuckdee13(m): 1:50pm On Apr 21, 2016
Great insight and advise smiley
OmogeNG:


3. The permanent residency visa is a bit tricky. I will just list out the points.
a. The visa itself is valid for 5yrs, if you intend travelling in and out. But at the same time, you can live in Aus indefinitely on the same visa, if you don't intend travelling out of the country.
b. If you intend travelling out and returning to the country after the 5yrs is up, and you don't have citizenship, you will need a RRV (Resident Return Visa). It is advisable to get it onshore before leaving. It takes just 1-2days if onshore, but up to a week if offshore.
c. But, to qualify for a RRV, you must have stayed a total of 2 years (it can be a combination of different short stays) during the 5yr period.
d. There are some exceptional circumstances where a stay of less than 2yrs can be accepted.
e. You have to validate your visa within 1yr of medicals and/or pcc.

Yeap. Technically, you are not paying for the exam at first. It is more of a pre-qualifying stage. If they feel you need to do some extra courses or a bridging course before the exam, they will let you know.

But the fees won't be refunded after assessment. Don't worry, I doubt you will be found unworthy.

According to EngineersAustralia, the Assessing body of the Engineers, you need a Masters Degree to be classed under the Professional Engineer.

I will tag NNBB2012 to help you out with this. I am not an Engineer and wouldn't want to mislead you.

When he is free, I trust he will attend to your question.

As per age, your age at the time you are invited to apply is what will be considered.

Yes, she can be assessed for any of it. However, you need to be sure if any state is sponsoring education manager.

If it is being sponsored, check the job description to aid in what you write for the assessment.

Big Congratulations Akinnawou on your PTE score and your outcome. That was a wonderful score! You get 20 points.

First and foremost, one good thing about your outcome is your education is assessed as equivalent to Bachelors degree under the AQF so you are entitled to 15 points.

Secondly, you cannot use this outcome letter to apply as a Professional Engineer, rather, you can apply as an Engineering Technologist Anzsco code 233914 on the SOL.

With regard to your age, you get 30 points until November 2016. Since you have 65 points in your kitty, you will most likely get invited before November.

When filling your EOI your points will be calculated for you. The sooner you apply the better. Congrats again. I'm glad I could be of help.

That is not true! You absolutely do not need a Masters degree to be assessed as a Professional Engineer.
A bachelor's degree will suffice. A Bachelor's or Masters serve the same purpose for Migration Skills Assessment. If your degree is not covered by the Washibgton Accord, your outcome is dependent on factors including your Competency Development Report and your Awarding Institution
