I have some questions regarding Skill assessment info in the EOI (where invitation is received)
I did my migration and employment skill assessment in Australia in 2016. I received positive outcome from CPA Australia.
I recently received an invitation for 190 (claimed 5 points for work experience from my 2016 skill assessment). My problem is the job that I had assessed didnít meet the 20hrs/week requirement (as I took off during final exams) but CPA approved.
But I have nominated my current work in my EOI as well, for which I havenít done skill assessment. I need advices on experts on this.

1. Since I have included my current job as a nominated employment in my EOI, can I just request CPA to update my assessment? That way I will have same assement reference no. But I will have 2 assement dates ( willl that be a problem?)

2. Or do i do a separate assessment for my current job where I have worked for more than a year and submit another EOI and wait for this invitation to expire.

What will be my best option ?

I am going to see a migration agent on Monday but I thought Getting opinions from different people is valuable on this matter.

Really appreciate if you know what to do in my case.

Thank you
I have no idea how CPA works, so would not like to venture into that area

Cheers

You are doing the right thing by consulting a MARA agent
I hope itís an Australian based agent

I have a query. I need your advice since I believe I may have done a mistake, please correct me before its too late. Please try to answer all my queries if possible as each query is different

i) I have raised separate EOI for PR 189 and for PR 190, I have raised 2, one for VIC and one for NSW. Do i need to cancel any of these? I have seen people saying that during invite if NSW or VIC comes to know that we have raised for other states as well then there is a chance of rejection.

2) I have submitted SD during my ACS assessment and is it enough to submit those same docs during visa docs submission as well? I have been in 2 companies and its tough to get reference letter in company letterhead. But in SD, I have in proper format with leads sign, references, roles and responsibilities. I didnt any face issue during ACS assessment.

3) for tax documents during visa docs submission, is FORM 26AS statements enough? if no, what is exactly needed for tax submission and how to get that.

4) For my first employer, I have last 6 months payslips, in 2nd employer I have 6 payslips with different months. I don't have payslips in each and every month during my full-time period. Is this an issue during visa docs submission?

Experts suggestions are also welcome and If I have asked some basic questions, please pardon me and help me out.

Thanks
1. VIC has a questionnaire wherein they ask if you have applied for SS to any other state also
I donít think NSW asks that question
How far it affects your sponsorship cannot be quantified as the reason for rejection of pre invite can be many and to pin point to one single factor would be foolishness

2. SDs face a lot More scrutiny then a reference letter.
ACS does not go into the merits of your case too deeply and leaves that to the DIBP.
So crossing the ACS hurdle is very easy, but at the DIBP level itís extremely hard
For current job, many members have reported that CO is insisting on getting a reference letter only despite submitting a SD

3. Form 16 and tax assessment documents will be helpful

4. If some payslips are missing , itís not an issue as long as the missing payslips are not bunched up in a particularly period only

Cheers

Strengthen the genuine marriage evidence
Promotion letters and commendation letters from employer or clients should be added
Skills assessment letter and set of documents used for same for both applicants

Cheers

Thanks for the reply NB, kind of you. In my first query I have said that, I have done EOI for PR 189, PR 190(NSW), PR-190(VIC) separately. Is this a problem?

Not a problem from Skillselect side
You are perfectly within your rights to do so

IT Assessment i have submitted from the year 2011 to 2017..
I gave each and every payslips for nearly 10 years along with the bank statements with th salary credit entry highlighted

Nothing is too much evidence as far as I am concerned

Joint bank account, joint loan account, joint property, , holidays you have taken together with air tickets and hotel bills, joint rental bills, joint utility bills

These are some I gave
You can add and deduct as per your circumstances

PR application is a journey of 1000 steps and if you take the first right step, you reach the destination faster
As this is my 3rd PR application, I knew what all was required and had painstakingly collected everything over the years
I put myself in the CO shoes when I prepare my documents to make sure that he gets everything he needs irrespective of whether the rules ask for it or not
Some members advocate giving the bare minimum evidence only, but I differ
I give so much evidence that the CO is more then happy to clear my application in the shortest possible time



Cheers

Hi

Thank you very much for your reply.
I will upload the PF Account statements, joint account,loan and property papers.

Hoping to get a direct grant as my friends who were contacted by CO for some clarifications had to wait for over 3 months after uploading the requested proofs.

The points that we have do not play any role in the assignment of CO is what i understood. correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks a ton once again..Congratulations on your PR, why did you do it 3 times?? just curious to know
