Hi Mark,

My husband and both are chartered accountants from India and looking forward to move to Australia eagerly. He submitted EoI in Mar 2017 with 70 points for PR 189. Does he stand any chance of getting invitation this year for PR visa 189 ? What is the ceiling for accountants general for the year 2017-18, is it 2500 or 5000 total accountants? Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks,

Hi Mark
Thanks for the informative information. My nominated position 312411 – Electronic Engineering Draftsperson has bee removed.
How closely matched does your current role details have to match the details of an occupation to be acceptable? Say for instance my role matches 75% of the description, Would this be acceptable for an application via the 190 Nominated Skilled stream?

What should i do now, either change a course or do the same i am doing. Because if there are 1000 marketing jobs, but they can give to the people who have studied the same course in their Masters. This cant be a sense that a person has done Diploma of marketing and serving as a assistant manager in a company or a firm. If i have done my MS in marketing then i must get a job in Australia. Not in Melbourne or sydney where there is population, but there where people are migrating and to make that place… Read more »
