190 visa - 80 or 85 points - should I complete an extra skills assessment?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone


    I have recently discovered that I qualify to apply for a 190 visa in SA based on being a high points scorer as my occupation is on the Supplementary Skilled List. I am currently on a whv in Melbourne but more than happy to make and commit to the move long term if successful.


    I am preparing my paperwork for my skills assessment and I would like some advice as to whether to pay a second fee to claim an extra 5 points from my husband's skills.


    Without it I would be on 75 plus 5 state nomination points taking me on to 80. With the second assessment I would obviously be on 85.


    I wonder if it will make all that much difference so if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it. We are working hard to save money in optimistic anticipation of a possible move so saving that second fee, approx $900, would make a difference.


    Thanks in advance :)
