Hi all,

I want to apply fir specialty
"Marketing Specialist" CSOL in ACT.

the current list says I can apply only if I have close family member living in Australia.

My sister is Australian Citizen. But she is living in Sydney. Can I use her reference to apply for closed occupations in ACT.

Also if someone can tell me if there is a possibility to open the closed occupation in 2015-16 cycle, that will be great.

website terms looks like the family members need to be in ACT for last 12 months in ACT as PR or should be Australia Citizen.

They also as asking the reason if your family member is not in ACT.

Can someone make this clear to me please?

Thanks in Advance
Achal

Your sister needs to have been living in the ACT and not in Sydney for the 12 months prior to your application - as that has not happened its a moot issue. Reasons not to be living there is - your sister is in the army and has been deployed. Your sister is working as a doctor based in Canberra but has a 3 month rotation in Goulburn, she works for the australian government but has a temporary post in Sydney - they are reason for her not to be in the ACT.
