Hi Vicky,

first of all, you'll have to check if your jobs are on the skilled occupation list edited by the australian immigration services : Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration

As far as the job is on the skilled occupation list, you are likely to get one once your visa is granted as they call for jobs where there are not enough peolple in Australia to fill in the positions.

Now, as far as I know, 175 or 176 is almost the same excepted that when sponsored by a state (=176 visa) you'll have to check if your job is on a state list you agree to live in that specific state for at least two years.

Best advice is to go to the australian immigration site : almost everything is written there.

Good luck ;)

Hi Vicky (usually this is a nickname for boys isin't it ?? :) )......

welcome to this forum....
You can check the sticky threads which will be a good starting point ..you occupation needs to be in the SOL list ...after that you will need to get the skills assessment done and then the IELTS....
if you want to opt for 176 visa then your occupation should also be in the state's migration list....

:)

Stormgal,

Globalization has some negative effect as well. :)

It will be highly appreciated if someone can advice on his chances.
