44 years old ICT Project Manager

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.

    Your husband must be invited to apply before he turns 45. Did you mean he turns 45 in March 2021? Its very hard to gauge which visa you can get a quicker invite..it depends which state, your skills and various factors. Most state's migration programs are still closed as they are still waiting for DHA's allocation( migration number allocations). If Im not mistaken, October ang initial target. There are states issuing sponsorship at the moment but only on specific occupation aligned on economic recovery/ health related occupations dahil sa Covid. Medyo long way to go pa kayo. Skills Assessment would take weeks to process. You cannot create EOI without this and English Test result. You still have to apply for state sponsorship which also takes months/weeks to approve. You only need to have your skills assessed if you are claiming 10 points as a spouse. Medyo tight ang remaining time but all you need is gamble. If not, you can be the the main applicant. If you can get 491 visa which is provisional, you can apply for a PR visa after complying the 3 year residency and earnings requirements later even the main applicant is more than 45 years old. Goodluck!

    if I may suggest as well po, it would be good to consult a MARA agent, "some" of them offer a free consultation on your first time :) they can tell you din po kung ano specifically ang pwedeng i-apply na Visa on your current circumstances...

    all the best po! :)

    Thank you for your fast responses.
    Matagal na namin gustong mag migrate, and because of our busy schedules in the rat race, it is just now during the lockdown that made us revisit/rethink all opportunities we have let go. You’re right @fgs we are on a tight schedule. Certification from my husband’s university is also taking a long time due to covid.
    But my hopes aren’t thwarted. Grateful for this group.

    I’ve sent email to one I discovered in YouTube, Caanwings, familiar po kayo sa kanila? The free advise we got is to focus on Visa 491, and bantayan ang state nominations.

    Which actually is also what I am confused about. Do we file an EOI for each state? So kung all 7 states gusto namin applyan, 7 EOIs din po ba yun? i’m not sure if this is wise but just for example.

    Thank you

    Each state have their own skilled occupations list and have their own nomination process. Don ka lang pwede magapply sa state kung saan needed ang skills mo. I suggest create a separate eoi for each state para malagay mo lang ang specific state. Medyo seloso minsan ibang state, pag madami ka pipiliin saan mo gusto magsponsor medyo magaalangan sila to invite you kasi nga di ka committed sa iisang state. Use www.anzscosearch.com para malaman saang state pwede yang occupation mo. Maganda sya kasi isang snapshot lang kita mo na lahat ng options mo. You just need to create an account para makita mo lahat ng features..free naman sya

    Pwede na kaya mag job search kahit wala pa sa Australia? IS there a chance to have an employer nominate offshore applicants?

    You can but slim amg chance esp wala ka pang visa. You have to look for an employer willing to sponsor you and this will take long because of the nomination process esp now na maraming nawalan ng work dito. The employer needs to prove na di sya makahanap ng worker onshore. Besides, mawawalan ka na ng chance to get a PR visa later kasi mag aapply ka pa din and the age req still applies. May exemption man din sa age limit provided you are earning a certain salary cap( 130k+ yata a year).
