Hi,
While working on the 189 visa application I have come across the following question -

Has the applicant been employed overseas in their nominated occupation or a closely related occupation at a skilled level, immediately before invitation to lodge this application? Yes or No.

followed by,

"Duration of overseas employment"
with options - Less than 3 years in the last 10 years, 3 years in the last 10 years, Less than 5 years in the last 10 years, Less than 8 years in the last 10 years.

My total work experience in the last 10 years is 9+ years. I do not have the suitable option. What should the value I should be selecting in this case. Please help.

FYI, ACS has considered my work experience starting from April 2011.

Thanks
KAT

This is weird. There should be an option for 8+ years.

Ok.. However, my skilled experience as per ACS assessment is considered from April 2011 onwards, which means 7 years of skilled experience by April 1st 2018. Should I be selecting "5 years in the last 10 years" in this case? Can you please clarify.
