PR Visa - Partner skill assesment (Engineers Australia)

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am Kishore working in Sydney in an IT firm via work permit. I am looking to apply for a permanent resident visa along with my family.

I was going through the points calculator and understood that spouse can also provide you additional 5 points if they qualify below.

1. was under 45 years old --> OK
2. had competent English --> OK
3. had nominated a skilled occupation that is on the same skilled occupation list as your nominated skilled occupation --> ????

Since I hail from IT background, I had my education and experience assessed with ACS (Australian Computer Society) positively. My spouse had completed Bachelors in Electrical & Electronic Engineering and have no experience. 

Question is, can my wife get assessed positively with Engineers Australia even though she is not having prior experience? If assessed positively, is it possible to claim under point 3 (above) to nominate for the skilled occupation to claim additional points?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If she has no experience, then she has no experience and can not claim/gain the experience points.  Am I missing something with what you said?

She can still get assessed by EA, but will score lower as she has no experience. I can't advise if her score will be enough.  Experience scores also vary depending on if the experience was in Australia or Overseas.

Experience is an area they really check well when assessing, as, so many people lie or try to fake their experience.
