the importance of points

In order to enter Australia under a Skilled Migration Visa, it is a requirement for some visas that your skills are assessed via a points system.  A Skills Assessment includes: evaluating your qualifications and employment against the criteria of the nominated occupation in Australia.  A positive assessment result is required to apply for a migration visa. 

Navigating this system is something Stojanovic & Associates specialise in.  We take the confusion out of whether your qualifications are recognised by the Australian Standard assist with which occupation to nominate.

 We can assist you with clearing your concerns and providing you with advice so that you apply through the right skills assessment authority.

When applying for a Skills Assessment, sometimes you may receive a negative outcome. This may be a result of not providing sufficient information in your documentation. In particular, to do with reference letters from employers outlining duties, as well as providing proof of two forms of payment as evidence of previous employment. 

There is, however, an opportunity to re-lodge your application and have this re-assessed.  At Stojanovic & Associates, we offer reviews of the negative outcome of your prior application to see whether you should apply for a re-assessment.  We can also assist you with collating the correct documentation and assisting you to re-apply.

A negative outcome doesn't have to be the end of your application but instead an opportunity to gather any documentation needed to re-apply. If you would like us to review previous negative skills outcome for you - please book a consultation with us and we will review whether you should re-apply and how to prepare.
