Thanks so much for the help with all my questions. If my positively assessed skill was later removed off the list after I was approved for said skill, could I still, in theory, get a job in Australia with that skill? So I was positively assessed to be a psychotherapist in Australia but that occupation was then removed from the list. Could I still work as a psychotherapist since it was approved through VETASSESS? Does that make sense? If I don't get nominated through the 189, is there any obvious reason why I wouldn't try for a 186 instead? Is there anything more negative (or more positive) about employer sponsored? Also curious if anyone has any experience of the process of moving from a 457 to a PR visa in the event I have to shoot for a 457. Thank you again!!!
