Default Should I apply for "Points Test Advice" from VETASSESS

For 190 I would like to nominate University Lecturer position. (I have a Doctorate degree)
I need to be assessed by Vetassess.

What I am not sure is whether do I have to apply for "Points Test Advice" from VETASSESS or will DIAC CO do that for me anyways?

Hi, I am not sure, but I think it will be best if you would apply for Points Test Advice... 20points are for a doctorate degree of "recognised standard" so I guess assessed by VETASSESS. DIAC is not even giving points for Bachelor if it was not assessed.
Was your PhD for more then 4 yrs? I am finishing a PhD soon, but it took me only 3 yrs, therefore I doubt I can get any points for it...

Hii Joanna...

Your PhD, if done in Germany will be credited with 20 points. Don't worry about that.
What field is PhD in?

It's in Pharmacy. I will apply for Points Test Advice as soon as I get my degree, it's not that expensive and should not take more then 1 month... Much better then losing 3000+ dollars on visa application:/

Btw, do you need these extra points? For 190 you just need 60points and a state nomination...

Yes you need 60 points (at least 55 from points test and 5 from state nomination).

Yes you need to apply for the points test advice. I heard from other Vetassess applicants that they had to (as was advised by their agents).

so go ahead and apply for the points test advice.

As long as duties mentioned on your reference letter match the ones on ANZSCO website (https://www.acacia-au.com/anzsco/242111.php) you should get a positive assessment.
Additionally you just need a recognized Bachelor degree to nominate that occupation.

I am also going to apply for Skill assessment via Vetassess, going for 190 visa, with state nomination. I have the same question.

My Docotorate is from USA and I have foreign work experience for last 5 years. Is it necessary for me to get Advisory Letter? I have only 3 things to be assessed, my doctoral degree and two different work experiences.

WIll you please help me, I beieve you would have already found answer to your question.

Hi all,
I need some advice. I got PTA outcome letter online from Vetassess on 30th June 2014. But due to some mix up, they did not mail me the hard copy. I remember selecting the "normal post" option which didn't add any extra charges to the application fee. When I enquired Vetassess about the hard copy, they said since I didn't select a paid postage option, I wouldn't get a copy in mail unless I pay a reissue fee.
My question is do I really need a hard copy to show to DIAC, or will the pdf suffice?
Thanks!
