Question RE 189 Visa

Recommended Posts

Candshow

Hi all, 

 

A quick question....for the 189 visa, do you currently have to be employed in the skill or can your past experience in the skill be sufficient - if you have had more than 10 years experience in the skill?

 

TIA 🙂

You can claim points for the period of time you were employed in your nominated occupation in the last 10 years. Don’t necessarily need to be currently employed in the nominated occupation. 

 

  • You can only claim points for employment if the employment was in your nominated skilled occupation or a closely related skilled occupation; and you were employed for the relevant periods set out in the table, in the 10 years before you are invited to apply.

Keep in mind that you are claiming for the amount of time you have been employed in the preceding 10 years.

As frosty mentions, for work experience points, you can only claim points in the previous 10 years.  Depending upon the circumstances and the occupation some skills assessments may require recent experience, different occupations have differing qualification/experience requirements. 
However, generally speaking you do not necessarily need to be working in the nominated occupation.
