Default Overseas Work Experience Points. Does DIAC consider only ACS letter experience

I got my ACS skills assessment done when I had 4.5 Years overseas work experience. ACS recognised it as 4.5 Years.

Now, after 5 months since ACS assessment, I have cleared my IELTS and in the meantime, have also gained 5 more months experience, pushing my actual overseas work experience to 5 Years.

I want to apply for 175 shortly.

Will I get points for 5 Years Experience as my same job(for which I had got my ACS assessment done) is still continuing. I assume I might have to provide some proof of the continuity of my employment in that case. But what can that proof be and should I submit that along with my 175 Application.

OR should I go for ACS assessment again just for the sake of ACS mentioning my overseas experience as 5 Years now, instead of 4.5 in my old letter.

Please help friends. I only qualify for 65 points if I get points for 5 Years overseas experience.

Yes at the time of application you should have completed 5 yrs in the same occupation related to ANZSCO code which you got in the ACS Skills assessment letter.

DIAC has the final discretion to calculate the points, ACS letter will be an indication only to ascertain that your skilled migration can be allowed under XXXXXX ANZSCO code.

You need not apply for ACS assessment again to get the 6 months experience included now. ACS results are now valid for 2 years.

Good Luck.

Default DIAC Rules on allocating points for Experience

HI, I am new to this site.

I will be applying for 176 subclass VIsa in couple of months (need to apply before June) before the rules changes. I have a query.

As per my ACS result, the total experience is coming exactly 8 years - whole of what was submitted as per the documents. This is dated 22 Dec 2011 and i m in continued employment in the same skill.

Now, my question is - if ACS gave me full credit of 8 out of 8 years, is there a possibility that DIAC officer will still reduce this and allocate me only 10 points or is that letter is suffecient to gain 15 points per per the points test guidelines.

It says towards the end that the final decision in awarding points remains with the DIAC. I am in a fix as i will be getting exactly 65 points post i get a state sponsorship. Kindly help me understand this.

Regards,
RS

Hi Buddy,

I am exactly in the same situation as you were earlier. I want to know what you actually did in this scenario. Did you again apply for ACS OR DIAC calculated no. of years itself based on your current experience apart from ACS?

Please reply.

Hi All,

I have total 3 years work experience as a Software Engineer. I received a positive skills assessment for 2 years 6 months in Feb'13 from ACS.

From the past 6 months I have been working with a different organization and did not get it assessed as 3 years completed on 7th April'13.Would I be able to gain 5 points for 3 years experience or do I have to go for reassessment for additional 6 months experience.

Please suggest.

Thanks

Hi Guys, I would like to begin with giving a brief on my profile, please pardon me if I posted in the wrong place or something as I am new and happy to be corrected.

Profile,
India---
-Way back in the nov of 2005 I started working as an office assistant, I think I was in my 12th standard or something, doing admin tasks and clerical jobs for some cash.Did this for 2 years roughly.

- Got promoted as a Junior Consultant, mostly assistting business analysts and system analysts and handling 1st and 2nd level user issues on a help desk, serving clients in the US. The company had grown as well.

-Next Jump was in I think the second year of my engineering when I got promoted as a Junior Business Analyst, continuing to work during the nights serving the clients in the US and going to college in the day, was pursuing computer science engineering at that time.Worked roughly 3.5 years at this profile.

Australia--
- Currently I hold a masters in IT from an australian university and I qualify to apply as a business analyst.

Querry--
The experience documents I can produce are--
--Payslip from the company telling how much was I paid
--An experience certificate that would tell all my duties that I performed
(The company is a multi-national at this time by the way)
--Any check or verification could be done with the company in regards to me.

The documents I cant produce are--
-- A bank statement showing the salary being credited in the account.
-- A tax returns document.

Why ?
Because , I was a student and was paid cash as I was not even a graduate, but what started as a thing to have some pocket money along with my studies, turned into quite a serious role as a Business analyst. Possibly the company wanted to save some money on Taxes or something.

My question : Since, I am going to apply for ACS and eventually submit an EOI, should I mention this experience to get the five points for 3 years of full-time work(30 hours a week during nights) as a business analyst or should I just apply with 60 points and hope for the best. I dont want to risk a complete rejection because I am unable to provide some bank statement and tax returns, and by the way I was paid quite less and was not a taxable income until the final 3 months of my work before I left for Australia.

Guys, I am on the verge of submittinng the EOI, prompt responses and your help would be very deeply appreciated.

I've read the post roughly and thus may miss something.. but the rules are

DIAC do not count work experience before Bachelor... they count the work you do after bachelor and (after\before) masters. Because most IT job has the point of entry that is AFTER Bachelor... the ANZSCO site says.

ACS counts all work experience before and after that is relevant.

If you claiming work experience points in EOI, you will Have to submit proof (reference letters, payslips, salary certs or bank certs)

ACS doesn't need any proof, only job description.

Today i have asked ACS to address my below queries, if anybody have any idea please reply:

my ACS assessment was received on 3-aug-2011, which is now expired and I am about to launch a re-validation request. My questions are as follows:

1. while re-validating, does ACS going to consider the new rule of deducting experience in case of relevant/irrelevant B.SC. degree?or previous rule will be applied in my re-validation case as I have completed my validation back in 3-aug-2011 according to previous rule?
2. after re-validation, can I claim points in DIAC (points for 8 years of experience) for my additional experience of 3.5 years upon submitting the correct papers of my additional employment experience in the relevant job which is gained after validating the ACS?

note that i have changed my employer but my current job is in the same occupation category.
