can you claim points for experience not assessed by Anmac?

Hi everybody, my wife and I are confused with regards to the letter of determination provided by anmac. Will this affect the points you can claim for you experience outside Australia?

My wife has 2 yrs experience in the Philippines from 2007-2009. The hospital is now closed.
She worked as an ICU nurse in Saudi from 2010-2011. Then as a nurse here in NZ since 2013.

We are unable to get a professional reference from her work in Saudi and in the Philippines because the hospital closed and she doesnt know anybody still working in her previous hospital in Saudi.

So the question that is bothering us the most is, if we submit professional references from her work in NZ only, does the letter of determination from Anmac affect her chances of claiming points for experiences which she did not submit during the Anmac processing? Pwede pa ba mgclaim ng points for work experience in Saudi and Philippines pag di ito masama sa ANMAC processing?

Any comments or experience is highly appreciated!! Thank you!

    @spec19 The letter of determination from anmac is your determining factor on how much points to claim. Which is why you only apply for an EOI after an assessment is made by anmac. If an EOI is lodged prior to an assessment outcome, this might and actually confirmed by many as visa refusal.

    One cannot claim points for an experience not assessed by ANMAC or any other assessing body for that matter. If the professional experience is not written in the LOD, then it can't be claimed. A lot of people actually miss this part and not read the LOD resulting in overclaiming of points which is again grounds for refusal.

    In short, any professional experiences of any profession if not assessed by their assessing authorities to obtain a valid skills assessment, should not be claimed.

    You can however email or talk to ANMAC and explain why you are not able to provide proof of those employments. If I'm not mistaken, to actually verify that you have worked in those countries, ANMAC will require proof such as your COGS, a reference letter, maybe a statutory declaration. If ANMAC decides that your proof were enough for an experience, then that shall reflect in your LOD. At this point, try and communicate with ANMAC if you really want to claim those experience.

    The basis of dibp in determining your points is the anmac assessment. Kung di mo sinama yong sa saudi and Ph, di sya maaasses as relevant sa claims mo. Maybe what you can do is get a statutory dec na closed na ang hospitals at di ka makakuha ng employment ref. Im sure you have payslips, maybe contracts, etc to prove na you really worked in those companies that might help anmac to recognise those work experiences. Remeber nagbabawas ng years of experience ang mga assessing bodies before they recognised you as deemed skilled so malaking tulong yong 3 years na experience sa ph and saudi. Pero if you can still achieve your desired score without those experiences then i guess its okay.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
