Points Test Advice from vetassess
 
HI PPl

I have a query on the point test advise from vetassess.I have my skills assessed by ACS but I have a graduation that is not related to my ACS. In the skill assessment letter from ACS also there was nothing mentioned about my Graduation but also there was nothing where ACS has referred to any assessing body on my graduation. When I contacted vetassess they said only if they get a letter from other assessing body or DIAC they would provide this advise letter..so what should I do now...I have got my invite and awaiting CO, will the CO reject my case in case there is no point test advise ?

Im bit worried on this

I have a similar case and my agent advised that I should file qualification assessment with Vetasses. I had filed the same without any advise from DIAC and my application is accepted and is under process.

However, there are couple of members here with similar situation, who have not got their qualification assessed from Vetasses and still have been awarded 15 points from CO.

So, to be on a safer side, you should go ahead with the assessment.

Thanks Hamster...my agent has advised me not to apply for Vetasses..so I jus thought I would wait till Co ask me for the point test...my question is will my case get rejected in case they don't have this advise letter at first instance?

That is the issue, nobody knows for sure. It completely depends upon the case officer. See below instance from DIAC advisory:

"Unrelated qualifications which cannot be assessed by your assessing authority can be assessed by VETASSESS.
It is prudent to seek the opinion of the relevant assessing authority on your skilled employment and qualification claims
before you lodge your EOI"

On basis of this your CO may reject your application. So, its better to have your qualification assessed.

I am in the same boat.
I have sent enquires to both VETASSESS and DIAC about the very same subject.
After a while, I've got 2 independent VETASSESS replies simultaneously : the former said "contact DIAC regarding this", while the latter said "you can fill the forms and apply".

Finally, today received an answer from DIAC, a very unkind one, which said:
Quote:

I apologise for the delay in responding to you.

With regard to your Masterís degree and skills assessment: A skill assessment under migration regulations must be in the nominated occupation. Only one assessing authority will issue a skills assessment for you.

I am not sure what the acronyms represent, so I cannot advise on those.

I trust this has been of assistance to you.
yes, I have written ACS as ASC but...

Anyway, It is better to secure your point advice prior filling visa if your points are on the edge

VETASSESS Skill Assessment time
 
To all,
I m a newbie here..Bhaskar. I've submitted all documents for Skill Assessment by Dec 4th to VETASSESS. Current status says 'pending' and 'no further documents required'. Can anyone suggest how long it can take and what are the next steps I should plan now only to save time?

Thanks
Bhaskar
