Hi Peng i was reading the website of Home affairs about skill assessment on visa 190 do you need to hold your skills assesment for 3 years before you can apply for this visa?

Yaya

Hi there could I pls ask if I m operating a restaurant and would like to hire them as a full time chef who is going to apply visa 190 do I need to have 100!seats and also have 3 full time staff already in my restaurant? Then I can hire them in term of their skill assessment? As I don’t think this informations are right ?

shahid

Dear Peng,

I am a qualified Chef. I have got a positive Chef skill assessment from TRA. Currently my points is 55 without 10 points from state. I am trying to get a better score to gain more points.

My inquiry is If my wife study in Tasmania on a student visa, and I am on dependent visa. Will I as a main applicant for 190/489 visa be still eligible to meet the study requirements for Tasmania.?

Is any chance to get invited with 65 plus points without working in Tasmania, will be invited 489v?

Duygu Turkeli

Dear Peng,
I hope this message suits you well.
Thank you for your detailed explanation for each category about visa 190 for Tasmania. Currently, I am a Master of Commerce student at Macquarie University. I am here with my partner, and we are thinking of relocating to Tasmania to be able to get a PR through him. At this point, I want to know if there are any changes in the requirements for applicants who enrolled in who enrolled who enrolled in a Tasmanian tertiary institution after 31 July 2017

Roopnavdeep singh

hi my wife is main applicant and we have been living in tasmania from 4 months .
our skill assessment has been refused by VETASSES [family support worker]
she is completing her 35 hours an week .and my migration lawyer said there is no way we can appeal and re apply skills assessment .
is there any way we can get our skills assessment or we can apply any visa which doesnot require skill assessment.
