**Immigration Requirements**

Depending upon the nationality of the candidate there may or may not be requirements for a skills assessment (ie trade testing) as evidence of competence equivalent to the Australian qualification (this is undertaken by VETASSESS who fly and deploy assessors to many countries for this purpose)

In the case of UK, Irish and Sri Lankan nationals there is no requirement for the skills assessment by VETASSESS, but the Immigration decision maker must be confident that the qualification (at least 3 years duration) and the work experience (i.e recent 5 years) meets the requirements.

Nationals of Fiji, Hong Kong, India, Macau, Philippines, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam or Zimbabwe are required to undergo skills assessments. Immigration does, however, have the discretion to request a skills assessment as part of the visa application process even where it is not mandatory.

Some of the evidence that will be required to support any visa application will include but not limited to:

• Copy of relevant qualification certificates (professional and educational)

• Copy of any required registration/licensing

• Curriculum vitae or resumé (including all employment history: the last 5 years is particularly critical)

• Previous employment references (including evidence that they have two years’ work experience in the nominated occupation or a related field)

The other key criteria are passing a comprehensive medical, police check of all countries in which the person has worked and evidence of English language skills:

• Where the person did not complete high school in English, they will be required to provide evidence of English language skills (i.e. IELTS test at least 5): holders of Canadian, Irish, NZ, UK or US passports are exempted

• If the person is exempted from providing evidence of English language skills, it is essential that they have good conversational English skills

• Minimum of A$53,900 per annum in salary

• A tool allowance which is around A$600 per year

• Superannuation (i.e pension plan) of 9.25 per cent of salary (i.e around A$5,000 per annum): this amount is invested and cannot be accessed until the person retires or permanently leaves Australia

• 4 weeks annual leave

• 10 days sick leave

• Around 9-10 days for public holidays

• Overtime for work outside of standard hours
