Hi Friends,

I am new to this portal. I have a small doubt, I am requesting you could you kindly clarify my doubt.
I have been working as a software engineer in Australia since Jan 2011. It means I am going to complete 3 years in Australia.
I would like to apply for PR in Australia. At present I have 50 points in my hand. i.e for My age 30, for my qualification 15, for my work experience in my home country 5 (worked 3 years in my country). So I need 10 more points to qualify points test. If I will get 7 in each band in IELTS 10 more points I can get, but I am very poor in English, I got overall 6 band in my recent attempt with speaking 5 band. It's very difficult to get 7 band in speaking for me. I heard that if I have the 3 years work experience in Australia I can get 10 points. If it is correct by the end of this year I am able to get 10 points for my work experience in Australia. So all together my points will be 60 by end of Jan 14 and I can apply for PR after 2014 Jan.

Could you please clarify am I able to get 10 points for my 3 years Aus work experience and also could you please clarify am I able to apply for PR after 2014 January.

Thank you very much for your help..

Yes you can! After jan 2014 you can claim 10pts for your employment in Australia. However rite now you still can claim 5 pts for one year employment in Australia that makes 55 and then u can apply for 190 wherein the state can sponsor you and u get 5 pts! check the official immigration website ( i cant post it here ) All the best!!

Mate,No matter how many points you get,you need to score a min of 6 in each to qualify for 189/190.
