If in want to be assessed as a secondary school teacher,op won't av issues becos I left teaching in 2011 and while I was teaching ,the school authority used to pay by hand ,also I dont know where I kept my employment letter but I Dont av issue with DAT,as I can always walk in and get another oner from the school or a letter, the issue now is bank statement to show I av worked and been paid as a teacher, pls advice

Assessing for Secondary School Teacher does not require work experience. You can get a positive assessment without work experience. Work experience only comes to play if you need to claim points with it.

Hello House,

Trust we are all making progress in our quest.

Just to let you know I just checked my IELTS result and this is the outcome:

Listening: 8.0
Reading: 7.0
Writing: 6.5
Speaking: 7.5
Overall: 7.5

I am still awating the outcome of Vetassess as I nominated Internal Auditor though I am considering another assessment with ICAA.

I am considering a re-marking of my writing! What do you think? @Bellong etc.

Thank you.

How many points do you need? Remarking is not guaranteed increase in score, and might end up being a waste of time and money. Why not just go for PTE?
Travel / Re: General Guide To Australian Permanent Resident Visa Through Skilled Migration. by OmogeNG: 1:13pm On Sep 23, 2016
In addition to what Bellong as rightfully said...

The weather in NT is generally hotter than many parts of Australia...although Alice Springs is a bit cooler and also gets snow/hail at times.

Unemployment in Darwin is the second lowest in Australia.

Government incentives to buy houses is highest in NT. The first home owners grant, home improvement grants etc, all make it relatively easy for a first home buyer to buy a house and do renovations.

Depending on your occupation, you can try to create a link between your job and the Indigenous people (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders). Anything that improves the lives of Indigenous people is highly welcome, viable, and financially 'fruitful' as well.

Talk about places like Tennent Creek, Katherine etc, to show how deep you have researched. Don't just focus on Darwin.

Talk about the alcohol purchase law and how it will be beneficial to you and your young family, as you can rest assured on the fact that the govt is clamping down on excessive alcohol purchases and use.

Negative.... WA is out of it.

Chemist is on Schedule 2 list, meaning he must have a job offer before being sponsored.
Victoria is still his best bet. He only need to package his CV very well and embellish his job descriptions as the State wants people in research.

Oh really....wow

So it is only VIC then. He should take a chance then...or maybe he should assess as a secondary school teacher abi?

Hmnnnn, VERY PICKY , u mean my chance is slim righth? Want to do my assignment before paying over 300k for vetassess. [Qquote author=OmogeNG post=49596724]

You are very lucky. You have 2 occupations to choose from...Secondary School Teacher and Chemist.

No. You can't count your teaching work experience. Only work experience as a Chemist, relevant work experience, counts.

Remember, there are 2 states open to Chemists. WA and VIC. WA requires at least 3yrs relevant work experience. VIC requires about 2 at least, but are VERY PICKY.

You stand a better chance with WA, as long as you meet their eligibility requirements.

As for VIC...they are quite picky, true...but someone here got VIC sponsorship. He did have a very good qualifications package though. But hey...yoi can give it a go as well.

Good morning gurus,
Somebody told me few minutes ago that one get fill the assessment and EOI form with part time education for his B. sc and or M. sc to claim points on his/her working experience. i e if I did a part time B.sc for like 6yrs and was doing a full time job during the same period, I can claim between 6-4 working experience.
Please, how true is that statement?

Don't try it! Experience has to be POST qualification.

Very true..

Western Australia Police and the Northern Territory Police are the highest paid police officers.... They both have little bit difficult physical requirements.. Swimming for NT and high beep test for WA

You sef know abi? Lol. Northern Territory Police even gives free housing join sef.

The Police Custody Officer position in Melbourne is another good one. They are actively recruiting now, and the recruiting process is quite fast. Not as highly paid (Nothing in Melbourne is highly paid anyways yimu), but a starting salary of about 55k - 60k (penalties included). You also have the Police Auxiliary in NT. They are sworn members as well, but with slightly different duties. It does not have a swimming requirement or a high physicals requirement. It has 3 streams, and only 1 even requires a physical.

Right now, to be sincere, if you want a job and you want a job fast, the Northern Territory is the place to be. Many people swarm to the large cities like Sydney, Melbourne etc where there is more competition IMO. For a Civil Engineer for example, Darwin is your best bet for now. There is construction on every street, and it is the 2nd fastest going city, after Melbourne. Darwin also has the second lowest unemployment rate, only second to ACT, and the gap between Darwin and the 3rd lowest is quite large.

Yeap. Bellong has given some important info as well. I don't take my Family Tax Benefit yearly though...I take it fortnightly and I have never owed money. The koko is to give a good estimate of your income, and update it with Centrelink IF it changes. But when you settle in well, and have hit the jackpot lol, you can take it yearly....but by then sef, you might not even qualify for it sef or qualify for just little, due to your income.

I discussed the Police idea with someone a few lages back as well. It is a really good option.

Oga Bellong, good day o
Before i ask some more specific questions, let me ask some general one......
In the grant, it is stated I must nt arrive after 2021....that to return I will need a visa. Pls whats the import of this?
I must enter before 6th feb 2017, any advice on when might be best to enter Oz?
What ways can one making his land over there soft in terms of keeping costs down (accommodation, school for children, etc)?
I was assessed as a Petroleum Engineer and I have mostly lecturing exp, what can you advice i do careerwise? in the shorterm, mid term...I need to start earning asap

Abeg more questions will follow.....

Your PR visa is for 5yrs. It allows you go in and out of the country for 5yrs, and allows you stay indefinitely in the country. It is expected that you would have gotten citizenship within those 5yrs. If by any chance you haven't gotten citizenship within those 5yrs, and you intend leaving the country for whatever reason, you will need a Resident Return Visa (RRV) to re-enter. A RRV takes about 1-2business days to get if you apply onshore, and about 1 week if overseas. There are some eligibility criteria for the RRV though. You must have resided for at least 2yrs in the 5yr period before applying for the RRV. It is not necessarily 2yrs at a stretch, but 2yrs cumulatively.

You must enter before 2017 means you must validate your visa before Feb 2017, as you cannot enter after your medical or pcc expires. It does not mean you have to settle in Australia. You can validate the trip and relocate at a later date.

Family Tax Benefit will considerably help with settling in. If you had a baby less than 12months ago or so (not sure), you can get up to 750 per fortnight...depending on your income. It is hard to give general advice, unless you can say the state you will be settling in and how old your kid(s) is/are. Let me know.

I am huge believer of 'Don't let anyone tell you some jobs are not for migrants'. Don't listen to such advice. If you want a lecturing job, you can get it. Approach the different unis around you, or email their HR dept. You can also look at other job adverts and see what their general requirements are. You might even get here and decide to change careers altogether. However, in the meanwhile, many new migrants do a quick course in disability support or individual care. That will enable you get a job in healthcare support industry. You can get the certificate 3 for free, as many states...if not all...have a certificate 3 guarantee program. Disability support/individual care jobs can pay anywhere from 25 dollars per hr and above, excluding penalty rates.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this wonderful thread, I’ve really benefitted from the wealth of info here. I want to nominate agricultural consultant for assessment with VETASSESS but need to ask a few question before going ahead.

1. What 5 major task does VETASSESS accept for agricultural consultant? I’ve gone through ANZSCO but the occupation task for agricultural consultant seems to be merged with that of agricultural and forestry scientist.
2. Does VETASSESS rate B.Sc. from Ahmadu Bello University as AQF bachelor?
3. I read online that someone got a negative assessment due to low learning/guided hours per week. What number of learning hours per week is appropriate to get positive assessment for agricultural consultant?

@bellong, OmogeNG cuteannie02, Okosay…….and others who are familiar with VETASSESS, your contributions will be appreciated. Thanks

If it is a 5yr degree, it will definitely be assessed positively. I'm sure you did a practical year during the degree. There is a section on the form to add that, and also another section to include your final year project.

You have to choose an aspect of Agriculture you consult in. You can be a crop farming consultant, livestock farming consultant etc. Just pretty much write down what you do in formal language.

Low learning hours? Never heard that before. Anyways...I'm sure your timetable for the degree was Monday to Friday, 6-8hrs per day, so you should have no issues with that.

The Grant with the longest timeline has arrived!!!
The timeline is as follows;
10th December, 2014; sent in my application to Engineer Australia for assessment
5th April, 2015; Got a positive assessment, dated 2nd March.
6th April; submitted an EOI
10th April: received an ITA. The speed made me wonder if the thing na real!
22nd May; lodged my application. Made the payment but wasn’t able to upload documents because my immi account was acting up.
I discovered Nairaland and through the discussions, I discovered I had made a HUGE error- had claimed some prequalification job experience. My points should actually be 60 and not 65. E-family had given me HBP with their comments that I had made a BOGUS claim and therefore jeopardized my application. However, of all these comments, Manmeta said I will be fine…..that he can feel it within his bones. This singular comment did a lot to calm me down.
25th June; by the direction of NNBB abi Bellong, I wrote DIPB a love letter making a passionate appeal for my points to tb corrected to 60. I stated it was an error done in ignorance and not a BOGUS claim.
13th July; they responded saying that it has been noted.
17th July; I was assigned a CO and he requested for documents and medicals. Remembered I was not able to upload my documents. I had put medicals on hold to see the outcome of my plea. I requested for my immi account to be repaired, still gave issues but one day it opened and I was able to upload the docs.
4th August; I and my family went for medicals
4th September; 1st request for outstanding documents! They asked for my form 80 and F1221. I sent the docs as email attachments. They first mail had omitted these forms, I resent it. They got the second mail and yet only decided to open the first one!
11th September; they sent a mail requesting to correct my score from 65 to 60. They said they agree it was an unintentional error. I sharperly consented! At this point my BP normalized…
24th September; 2nd request for outstanding documents! Asking for form 80 and F1221 AGAIN! I discovered they don’t check their mails so I resulted to calling them asap after I have sent a document. However, they also requested for my wife’s evidence of functional English as her certificates submitted is not a proof that the courses were taught and examined in English. Na vernacular we dey use learn for Nigeria
The letter for proof of functional English took 4 weeks to obtain. UNICAL and una registrar I tire for una!
27th November; 3rd request for outstanding documents! They asked for my CV. I had attached it earlier but as usual….. They also asked for my wife’s transcript. Remembering what I passed through to get a simple letter, I acted wisely. I contacted a friend working in the university where my wife was doing her Msc and we were able to retrieve her transcript from the PG school and I photocopied it. Sharp guy!!
28th January 2016; 4th request for outstanding documents! I tire for this people! They asked I should provide the following; address (including street number) for 2 work places I had claimed (I had written only the city where they were situated), Name of family business which I was involved in. (it was a road side unregistered and nameless shop), show evidence of how I supported myself financially during my Msc abroad. Na wa! They thought I had worked during my Msc. I found the electronic receipt of my school fees paid by my father; I sent it as I didn’t have any bank statement for that period.
During all this my wife got pregnant. We thought the grant will come out and we could leave by March. We never heard anything up till March 21st when we put the application on hold.
15th April; they wrote saying my application was decision ready. They informed me of the advantage of delivering the baby onshore and asked for my wife’s due date.
15th June; requested for my application to be reopened. Our baby had arrived May 17th.
23rd June; they requested the baby to go for medicals.
8th July; the baby’s medicals was done and submitted.
2nd September; THE 189 GRANT LANDED for myself, wife and two kids!!!! It has been a dogged journey. It took a lot of will power, PERIODS of despair, anxiety (waking up every night to check mails and so many of those days, they was no mail!). Hope someone will learn from my mistakes. But above all, I believe God allowed it to be so for a reason.
My appreciation goes to God almighty, BossLadyMo, NNBB, Oga Bellong, Manmeta, Izykvision, etc.
The land of Oz, here we come!

Wow!!! What a journey. Congrats and Welcome!

Good morning. Sorry for the late response bro. Do you mind sharing more info about the PGD thing? It's the first I'm hearing about it to be honest as regarding Australian PR route. Does it mean I'm not qualified for post study visa after the programme? What body does the assessment for this and all ? Do you have a specific school or city in mind? Please I'll appreciate a little more light thrown on this for me. Thank u again.

I'm a lady lol.

No, you won't be going via post-study work visa route. After getting the pgd, you apply for a skill assessment. Once you get the skill assessment, you apply for your 189 or 190 PR visa via the skilled migration route.. If you are still in Australia on a valid visa when you apply, you will ge a bridging visa that would enable you remain onshore till your PR is approved.

You can't get a post-study work visa, as it is only 1yr study, but you will get something even better...permanent residency.

Why don't you enrol in a Postgrad diploma in Education? and use that as a route to PR?

You can get a skill assessment as a teacher with your Naija BSc + Aus Pgd, without work experience. Just do your 1yr (9mths) pgd, then apply for skill assessment onshore. Once you get a positive assessment, you can apply for 189 or 190.

Pgd is about 21k...but it is faster than diploma or masters, and gives you a higher qualification sef.

Reading your post on this thread has been a motivation to me. I feel very encouraged when I saw that you received a positive assessment from the same assessing body (VETASSESS) and in the same field that I intend going for and now your ITA, hence I seek your support in the way of information. I finished with a second class upper division in Agricultural Economics & Extension Services from a federal university in Nigeria. I sent you a PM hoping that I could ask you some questions through the medium.

1. Did you finish from a Nigerian university? If yes please how did you address the transcript to VETASSESS and which courier service did you use?

Was it your school that sent it directly to them or you received from school and send to them? Please, if you don't mind, elucidate on how you went about it.

2. (a) Did they call you for further interview about the job experience which you claimed or anything else?

(b) Did you include your NYSC under the experience?

(c) If I have less than 5 years experience on the field but up to 3 years do you think it will be a problem?

(d) Besides payslip and an employment reference letter that you uploaded did they requested that you add any additional proof?

(e) How many months payslip did you submit online?

(f) Was the payslip in sequence or was it selected from different years?

(g) If I will like to add my bank statement, how many months do you think will be accepted as the minimum?

3. Please if you don't mind which of the skills did you go for?



***Please feel free to skip any of my questions which you don't feel comfortable with. I also know that many of my questions has been answered before now just that i want a first hand answer from you. Meanwhile, I still wish I'll be able to talk to you off Nairaland through mail or any other medium but that will be if you oblige me. Thanks

I can answer as I came to Australia based on a similar occupation and qualification.

1. Your school has to send it directly to VETASSESS. Nigeria and Pakistan are the only 2 countries that have to do that...go figure. My uni was kind enough to even include a certified copy of my certificate in the transcript envelope. So I didn't have to pay to send my certificate myself. I've forgotten the name of the courier company that was used, but it wasn't DHL or Fedex or one of the big names. It got there in 5working days and my school gave me the tracking number. It is no biggie actually, I'm sure you are not the first person to have them send a transcript overseas.

2a. I wasn't called, neither was my employer. But it depends sha. They might call, and they might decide to not call.

2b. You can include NYSC experience. It counts. My NYSC experience wasn't relevant though, but I still included it in my application...as you need to explain any gaps in employment.

2c. It won't be a problem, depending on your occupation. The required experience needed by vetassess is 1-3yrs post qualification, depending on what category your occupation is, and your profile. So for example, Agric. Consultant is category A, and requires a highly relevant qualification plus 1yr experience at least.....while a category b occupation might not require a highly relevant qualification, but lets you make up for it in work experience (2 or more years).

2d. All I submitted was payslips and reference letter. They might request for more evidence, and they might not. It is really at their discretion.

2e. The unwritten rule for payslips is - Your very first one (to confirm when you truly started), a couple in the middle (maybe 2/3 per each year of work), and then your very last one before submitting your application (to show you still work there).

2f. See 2e

2g. See 2e...replace payslips with bank statements.

3. Agricultural Consultant.


P.S - Do yourself and the Vetassess Assessor a favour...merge similar pdf files into one. e.g all payslips or bank statements into one single file.

For clarity,are points claimed separately for skill and qualification? Suffice to say that I will get more points if both my skill and qualification are assessed,Abi?

You don't need a work experience assessment, as long as you're sure your duties correlate with the job description for your nominated occupation. Remember you can only claim work experience gotten AFTER your deemed skilled date i.e the year you obtained whatever qualification you are presenting.

As my husband and i have only nigerian degrees in Architecture and most people in this forum that has got a positve assessment all have foreign degrees attached to their nigerian degree.
Thanks for your response.

Someone on the previous version of this thread, got assessed positively based on his Nigerian degree in Architecture. Loads of others have used their basic BSc to obtain a positive assessment.

That aside, not all Nigerian degrees are assessed positively. But i can almost guarantee that 5yr degrees from any uni, and 4yr degrees from Federal unis and a few state unis, qualify. E.g Someone from IMSU got a negative assessment, while someone from OAU got a positive assessment...both 4yr courses...same assessing body.

Again, must it be my degree certificate though i have applied for it but my school said it will take time to come out but i have my statement of result, i graduated 2006 will vetasses accept my degree statement of result?


If your school is refusing to email you a copy, you can ask vetassess to email you a copy. This is after you have received your assessment outcome though.

Yes, you can use a statement of result or letter of attainment.

I want to use my ICAN qualification to be assessed under General Aacounting

But my job experience has been majorly Audit (both external and internal )

Please what do u advise. Is it ok to use my ICAN qualification and is it ok to be assessed under General Account despite my job experience ?


Thanks for the response. I know internal audit and external audit are available. But I would prefer to be assessed for general accounting. My question is this , is it ok to be assessed under general accounting despite my work experience as an auditor?

Thanks for attending to my question

The way Accountant assessments go is, your qualification and employment are assessed seperately. So you can obtain a qualifications assessment only, and forget about getting a skilled employment assessment, as long as you have the compulsory units for Accountants on your transcript.

However, if you intend claiming points for work experience, then you work experience needs to be relevant to your nominated occupation. So you can't claim points under Accountant, based on Internal Auditor work experience.

Best is for you to assess as an I/E Auditor, and assess your skilled work experience to claim points.

Question 2. Will her 65 points get her a visa 189 given she's in the accounting circle(internal audit).
Question 3. Outside asking your bank to increase your daily limit,how else can someone pay for the vetassess fee for evaluation?
Cc:belong and other guru,kindly assist.

1. It depends. If her Bachelor degree is found equal to an Australian degree, then she can claim points from 2005. But if she needs her ICAN to boost her BSc, then she can only claim points from 2010.

2. 65 points is competitive enough. If she is in doubt, NSW is sponsoring for 190 as well. But she should be fine for 189/65pts.

3. Being a Naija applicant, I doubt any other method will be available for her to use. You can email VETASSESS or check their website for mode of payment. I doubt they would accept a money order or cheque from Naija tho.

Which uni is her BSc from?

Sir,
I am still not clear with your response, If I do the test again and get 10 points, it is not reasonable to go for subclass 190 again. i will rather opt for 189,making 190 useless.

Then do it again and opt for 189. Whatever it is, 489 should be your last option.

Hello,
I need a little clarification on 190 visa. I understand it is 55 points and applicant will be awarded 5 points, if sponsor by a state or territory. The question is if I have 50 points already and I now decided to go for 190 visa, am I qualify for the programme. please, kindly explain this thing.

33- 39 years = 25

ENGLISH LANG ABILITY = 0
(S-53,W-69,R-57 AND L-65)

SKILLED EMPOLYMENT = 15
15 YEARS WORKING EXPERIENCE

QUALIFICATION = 10

TOTAL =50

if I decided to go for 190 visa that require 55 points, and a state or region is ready to nominate me,am I going to add 5 points to it making 55 point?



No you don't qualify. You qualify for 489 tho. But try your best to get 190. Do your English test again.

Hi All. I got an invite on 6th July, 2016 for skilled Independent 189. I'm now preparing documents for lodging my application and I need some clarifications.

1) Do I need to certify/notarise the documents before upload?

2) Are there specific lawyers appointed by Australian Immigration for notarising documents in Nigeria or any notary public can do?

Thanks.

1. If the original is coloured, you don't need to certify. You can upload original. That is what I did. But if the original is b&w, then you need to certify.

2. No specific lawyer. Just head to a court and ask for a notary body. There are guys that hang outside courts that do that as business.
