Hi guys,

I have about 4 years 9 months experience at this point (EXCLUDING the full-time internship of 5 months before that ). I'll complete full 5 years at mid-June.

I wanted to apply to ACS for skills assessment, but I'm confused at this point.
Its a possibility that they might not consider the internship as valid work experience(though it was paid full-time), which means that the ACS assessment letter might show my experience as 4 years 9 months.

Unfortunately, the 175 visa process changes in July, and I wish to apply before that.
My question is - If I apply for 175 visa in June-end (when I will have completed full 5 years), and if my ACS assessment still says 4 years 9 months, will I be able to claim the 10 points of employment(5 years) ? Or will I be able to claim only 5 points (even though I have 5 yrs experience at the time of visa application) just because the assessment letter says 4 years 9 months ?

Please help ! Time is running out, and I am not sure whether I should simply wait till July or not. :(
Experience will be counted up to when you applied to DIAC. You may need an updated experience letter from supervisor with exact duties you mentioned during ACS assessment. You can even apply on the 30th June unless any new rule applies before which is most unlikely at this moment.

About the state sponsorship - I went through the forum and also saw the various state websites , but just wasn't too sure about the following -

Most of the sites said that they require you to stay in that state for 2 years from the day you come-in to Australia. So does this mean that I cant go there, get the visa stamped, come back and then actually migrate when I get a job ? Its hard to migrate without a job, right ? :)

Any idea ?
If you stay in the specific state for 2 years then you are free to permanently move any state. It doesn't mean that you will have to stay 2 years and can't get back to home. You can go to a short trip and validated visa. Then go there after securing a job and leave 2 years or more and then you will be free :)

This is a moral obligation. If your company wants they can even transfer you to any of their branch in any state.
