March 2011: Completed a combined undergrad + masters degree in Economics
April 2011 - March 2017: Period of employment highly relevant to Mgt Consulting [6 years]
April 2017 - April 2018: Post graduate programme in Management
June 2018 - current: Period of employment highly relevant to Mgt Consulting [1.5 years]

I would like to assume that my undergrad/masters degree (2011) is not in a highly relevant field while my most recent degree in management (2018) is highly relevant.

As per the requirements laid out by VETASSESS, "if qualification is not in a highly relevant field, 3 years of highly relevant post qualification employment is required within the past 5 years. This is reduced to 2 years if there is an additional qualification at least at AQF Diploma level in a highly relevant field".

Despite several attempts, I am not able to understand as to when do I met the entry level requirements for my occupation and how many years of skilled employment I would have based on the above. In particular, looking for clarity on whether they would consider skilled employment only post my latest/ "relevant" degree in 2018 or consider skilled employment before it as well.

I've written to VETASSESS but not sure if they will opine on this. Appreciate any inputs from you at all.

Thanks in advance for your help.
No idea

Cheers

Hi NB,

I am planning to apply for Australia PR in 1-2 months time. My daughter is 4 years old and her passport expires next year. We had taken her passport within a month of her birth as we had to travel internationally before she was 3 months old. Needless to say her passport pic looks nothing like her and I am worried either the picture is not good enough for identification or even if it is good enough, the PR process will not be complete before her passport expiry, which is in 11 months time. Should I go ahead and renew her passport now itself or can I wait till the expiry date? If I renew now, my daughter's address will be different to the ones me and my wife have on our passports as we changed residences and cities during this time. I can try to get the passport renewed at the old address itself as it is our hometown.

p.s: we are in India

Nope

Wait for an email response

Cheers
Got a response today. The dept copied and pasted the same statement that they have on their website under FAQs for release letter.

Hi NB / senior members, on new 491, will kids (university going) will be treated at par as regular PR (189/190 etc) or will be treated as international student like dependent of 482.

Any information or source will be really helpful in taking call.

Thanks in advance.

To ask for fresh medical and pcc or not is the sole prerogative of the CO
I would not be pro active and wait for the CO to ask for the same

Get the passport renewed
The different address will not matter as you would be giving that address in form 80 anyways

Itís a 10 years validity so 6 months here and there doesnít matter

Hi NB, for a single consolidated PDF ( for example employment evidence) - can we create a table of contents/index so that CO can easily refer it ?

Default Previous countries of residence

Hi NB,

Would really appreciate if you could answer this question as I have found different answers regarding it in the forum. In the 190 visa application, there is a question under "Previous countries of residence" section:
Have any of the applicants lived in a country other than the primary applicant's usual country of residence?

I have gone ahead in the application and there is no other section regarding short stays/business/leisure visits. The confusing part of the question is "lived" as I have only been to Oman to visit some relatives.

Now, I am in Australia since 2 years 4 months. Originally from India. I have got PCC from India as well.

According to the question:
1. Shouldn't my usual country of residence be Australia?
2. If so, should I include my visits to and from India?
3. I did visit Oman 4-5 times though not for more than 1 month at any given time and my last visit was in October 2009. Do I need to include this as well?
4. Should I consider the last 10 years or 30 years?

Thanking in advance!
