  2. You can only claim points for employment if the employment was in your nominated skilled occupation or a closely related skilled occupation; and you were employed for the relevant periods set out in the table, in the 10 years before you are invited to apply.
  3. For any Australian employment you must have held a substantive visa or a Bridging A or Bridging B visa and complied with the conditions of that visa to be eligible for points.
  4. The postgraduate degree by research (doctorate or masters) must be awarded from an Australian education institution after at least two academic years of study in the following science, technology, engineering, mathematics or specified information and communication technology (ICT) fields.
  5. You must have at least 1 degree, diploma or trade qualification from an Australian educational institution that meets the Australian study requirement.
  6. Professional year points can be claimed if having a completion of professional year program of 12 months in Australia from the following organizations: the Australian Computer Society, CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, the Institute of Public Accountants (formerly the National Institute of Accountants), Engineers Australia.
  7. To be credentialed in a community language and eligible for the award of points you must have been accredited at the paraprofessional level or above, certified at the certified provisional level or above, or have a community language credential for interpreting or translating by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters.

NB. Achieving the required points or having the the pass mark in hand doesn’t means that you will certainly get an invitation to apply for any of the visas including Subclass 189, 190 & 491 visas.
