I am Database Administrator (262111), with over 6 years of experience.
I have appeared in IELTS exam and got (L-7, W-6.5, S-6.5, R-6).

My occupation comes in CSOL, and I have checked all states, only Victoria and NT requires Database Administrator. I can not apply for Victoria, it needs 7 band in each section. Whereas NT takes more than 30 weeks.

Is there any other category I can apply in ? My brother studied in Australia and living in Australia, and applied for PR. If he gets PR can he sponsor me in any other visa category ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi oracle.dba,

unfortunately your occupation needs to be on the SOL for a 489 family sponsorship, so that variant is out. Re-sitting IELTS to apply for 190 sponsorship from Victoria seems like a reasonable option. Or go for NT.

Alternatively, you could consider trying to find an employer willing to sponsor you (see options listed on SkillSelect). The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) has a Direct Entry stream that gives you PR right from the start. However, you'll have to find an employer from overseas, which can be very tricky.

Cheers,
Monika
