    Hi Mark,
    Thank u very much for ur reply. So let’s say my occupation is on SOL and I can meet 60 points (with out having a state sponsorship) I can apply ? So as long as I meet 60 points without stateponsorship I don’t have to bother about state requirements ?

    • Hi Allen. The Passmark is 60 points for the Skilled – Independent (subclass 189) visa so as long as you have an occupation on the SOL then you can apply independently of state sponsorship.

      Obviously, the more points you have the more attractive you become as a potential candidate :)

  • Hi Mark, I have successful skill assessment for (312512) Mechanical Engineering Technician. My skill is on SOL (Tasmania and SA). But both states have special conditions that almost impossible meet. Pls advice me what visa i can apply. Thanks.

    • Hi @allen-derik if your job is only on the Consolidated Occupations List your options are a little more limited unfortunately (state or 457 sponsorship).

      What are the conditions being levied under state sponsorship?
