Hello, good day.
My husband, would be the main applicant for the Visa to migrate to Australia. We are from the Philippines, and we have two children ages 14 and 13. We are in the process of completing all my husband's documents for ACS, and my husband will take the PTE language exam in November. We've done our homework in terms of aligning his current job to that of the ANZCO occupation list and we are hoping to receive a positive assessment for 135112 ICT Project Manager.
For this occupation, the DHA website indicates that my husband could apply for Visa 190 or 491. Kindly guide us as to which Visa we should apply for that would take the shortest waiting time to receive an ITA. My husband would be 45 years old in March 2020, and we deem it crucial that we would lodge the correct visa subclass that would ensure a visa to migrate to Australia before he turns 45. Would the Visa 491 lead us to Permanent Residency? Would I (spouse) need to have my skills assessed by AITSL as a teacher - 2414 Secondary School Teacher? Would I need to take the PTE test too, so that my husband could claim points? I am 43 years old, turning 44 in March 2020.
Thank you so much. We appreciate it if you could steer us in the right direction.
