Instructions for nominations submitted by states for ICT occupations with an assessment of the skills of the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
ICT Professions – Offshore Applicants
In 2018/19, Immigration SA again requests foreign applicants for ICT occupations on the list of occupations offered by the State to meet a higher point requirement of the Department of Home Affair points test. This will apply to any profession involving a skills assessment of the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
Please refer to the list of state-designated occupations for details on the minimum number of points required for your occupation in the ICT sector. The minimum number of points required will initially be set at 70 points (including the 10 States nomination points for provisional visa subclass 489), and may be reduced to 65 points depending on the number of applications received.
If a profession has reached its planning level, it will be listed as “special conditions” and candidates will be eligible only if they fall under one of the categories of special conditions (to access special conditions and trades of the list of additional skills).
ICT Professions – Working in South Australia / Graduate categories in South Australia
Higher points are not required if you are applying in the following categories:
- currently working in your designated or closely related profession in South Australia; or
- if you are applying to the international graduate of South Australia.
In these cases, a minimum of only 65 points is required (including state nomination points).
ICT Professions – Professional Experience Points
Your assessment of the ACS competencies will indicate the recognition date of your professional experience – see the example below:
The following job, after June 2012, is considered to have a sufficient level of qualification and corresponding to 261111 (ICT Business Analyst) of the ANZSCO code.
Make sure you check this date before claiming professional experience points in your SkillSelect event of interest. If you claim work experience points prior to this date on your competency assessment, your application for a state application will be rejected due to incorrectly claimed points.
