Hello Folks,

I am a novice applicant to apply PR Visa for Australia, I have questions like

Work Experience:3.8 Years of Exp - ANZSCO code : 262111 (Database Administrator)
Educational Qualification : Bachelors in Electronics and Communication.

1) Is it good to apply PR Visa without consultancy/MARA agents?
2) I am a database administrator having 3.8 years of exp working in India, I got 60 Points while evaluating by consultancy in category of Skilled worker point based system of Subclass 189/190. Is it good to apply VISA now or I should apply 6 months or 1year later?
3) Which is best to take IELTS or PTE exam?
4) Will ACS reject my application if i have less than 4 years of experience?
5) How will be the life for Database Administrator in Australia?

1. Yes. If you have time then you can do all yourselfs. Ask in this forum for queries
2. Usually ACS deducts some exp. It can be 2 yrs if you education is closely related to your current occupation. Consider this while calculating points
3. People are able to score properly in PTE as compared to IELTS but thats not a rule of thumb. Just an observation
4. They won't
5. No idea. Normal i guess if they are able to secure a job.

Thank for your answers! @Sharma1981 it's really appreciated

I have completed my Bachelors in Electronics but i am working in Software Industry i.e. as a Database administrator, I have no gaps in education as well as in work experience.

Bachelors full time degree 4 years (16 Years of Education no gaps)
Work Full time 3.8 years

1st Company : Nov - 13 to Jun - 15 and have a gap of 1 week joining the second company
2nd Company : July 2016 to Apr 2016 have a gap of 10 days joining the third company
3rd Company : May 2016 to till date

How many years of experience will ACS consider from above detials approximately.

Will it be hard to get a Visa if I get low assessment score from ACS.

Are you able to reach 65 points without considering exp points as your total exp looks less?

ACS might attempt to deduct 4 yrs from your exp. So you can wait for 4 yrs to complete.

Meanwhile try attempting PTE and target 79+ score in all modules.

Age - 30
PTE - 20
Degree - 15 (??) - Just research that you want to go with EA OR ACS as assessing authority.

In present scenario 65 is minimum which you should target for. 60 points makes you eligible but try reaching atleast 65 score

Applying jobs has nothing to do with your points. Once you get PR you can apply for anything which suits you.

Also, check VISA 190 which is state sponsored and gives you additional 5 points

Thanks for your patience for answering my questions, your answers are demystified to understand.

I will wait for my 4 years of experience to get completed and then i will apply for ACS

To apply for ACS I am bit confused of document checklist could you please correct me.

A) Educational Documents (Transcripts of Each sem and CMM, Original degree, Provisional)
B) Letter head of each company

1) Do i need to notarize any documents of my previous experience from previous employers.
2) As i am working in a company now how can i submit Start date and ToDate while applying to ACS?
3) Apart from this do i need to submit any additional documents online or send to DIBP/ACS in courier?

Under SubClass 190 will i be charged extra for applying nomination by province/territory to obtain 5 additional points.

I don't think there is any extra charge. But i heard that post invite you need to declare some funds which may/may not be validated. More info in thread for 190

@sharma1981 I need one suggestion,

Is it a good time for me to apply PR, if i get only 60 points under subclass 189/190, without my work experience i.e. 0 points as my education is not relevant to work experience. If i am considering Age + Education + Work + IELTS/PTE + nomination = 30+15+0+10+5 = 60.

Prepare Hard for PTE. Target 79+ across all sections.

This will atleast get you ready for future as well. Your PTE score will stay valid for 3 years.

Does it mean like it is hard to get a VISA with 60 points only, if we are eligible also do we need to worry like applying Canada where we need to wait in the queue to get ITA although we are in the pool regardless the points earned.

So it would be tough if i have only 60 points so i need atleast 70+ to have guaranteed VISA within 6-12 months.
