I'm thinking of apply for visa 190 ( I have already seen, and my job/ profession are on the CSOL list)
There´s no much information about this visa on WEB, so that I am here to ask for help :'(
I have done the simulation, and the results are:
Skilled Nominated Subclass 190 - requires nomination by a State or Territory Government. You must have an occupation on the Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL). See the Skilled Nominated page for more details.
( 5 points if eligible for a state nomination ! )
Age - 33-39 years
- IELTS: 7+ in each component; or
- PTE Academic: 65+ in each component;
Recognised Trade Qualification including
- Other award or qualification recognised by the skills assessing authority
Overseas Work Experience
8 Years or more
Australian Work Experience
Partner Skill Qualifications
Skilled Migration Points Test Results
Your score is: 65
As the pass mark for Skilled - Nominated Subclass 190 is 60, you would appear to meet the criteria for this type of visa....etc etc etc
So guys, the questions are: I simulated with an IELTS 7 or PTE, I alredy have an IELTS 6.5 but it does not meet the minimum points. So I am willing to take a PTE teste as soon as I can. ( Im considering really get the PTE score for 10 points)
Other major issue : my qualifications. I found that VETASSES would be responsible for assessing my skills.
so, FIRST I would send all my papers ( translated to english, of course), for them, and wait for a response. My profession is firefigther, and I have more than 10 years of experience, and I also own a certificate of this firefighter course, with more than one year and full time study.
Finally, I would choose the South Australia region, in order to get more 5 points.
so guys, what about my case ? do you consider this very hard to struggle ?
this is my last and only chance to immigrate, because in my other degree I dont meet the minimum requirements.....
Any advice for me ? do you think it´d be better to hire an immigration agent ?
Thank you so much for any relevant advice or opinion that help me.
