Question asked

I am an Apiarist and was wondering if I could apply for a state sponsorship. Can you please advise on my possibilities and how to progress with a Skills Assessment?
Christopher Y.

Answer provided by Migration Agent

Dear C.,

As an Apiarist you may pursue different visa pathways.

The ANZSCO Code for your occupation is 121311.

The Skills Assessing Authority is VETASSESS, current processing times after lodgement are approx. 12 weeks and the application charge is $810.

Please note that relevant work experience may be a requirement expected by the skills assessing authorities.

As on the date of this answer, your occupation is available for the following State or Territory sponsorship:
- NT (with positive job prospects), visa subclass 190 and visa subclass 489
- ACT (with job offer), visa subclass 190 and visa subclass 489
- QLD, visa subclass 489

I have provided more information about the requirements of each state in the attached file.

Once you have achieved your state sponsorship you are able to apply for a skilled state sponsored or skilled state nominated visa via Skill Select.

Let me know if you require further information about the preparation of your skills assessment or state sponsorship application.
