ACS requires a highly related Bachelor degree with four years of post-qualification work experience. If you have a degree which is not related to IT (ICT) or not have a degree at all, you will need to have a longer work experience.

  • The nominated occupation for your employer sponsored visa may be different to what your existing work experience and qualifications can obtain through the ACS skills assessment.
  • General Skilled Migration

    People in the IT (ICT) industry may move from one role to another when they change employers. If you were a Software Engineer for 2 years and then a Web Developer for 2 years, you may not have enough work experience for one occupation. This can only be determined by the Skills Assessment Authority.
  • Post-visa-grant Obligations - Employer Sponsored visas including subclass 457, ENS 186 and RSMS 187 visas

    It has been observed that some employers may change the role of their 457 visa employees after the 457 visa was granted. This is in violation of the obligation that the 457 visa holder should only work in the occupation nominated for the visa. A non-compliance of the sponsorship obligation could lead to 457 Standard Business Sponsor Monitoring and Sanction. If the employer is sanctioned, no further sponsorship applications can be made for at least 12 months.
