It’s true that you can get a skilled independent visa Australia without having any international work experience.
The candidate just needs to have experience in a profile mentioned in the combined current list of eligible occupations. All these profiles have the code 189(PT) written against them. The experience of a candidate in such relevant occupations even if gained outside Australia, should be of the relevant number of years. The years of employment outside Australia should not be less than 3 years and can be 8 years or more. This much experience is required to score points for your work done in a local country under the visa category of 189 visa. The candidate who is looking for Australia PR under this skilled visa Australia category can get 5 points for 3 years of experience and 15 for 8 and higher years of experience.
Apart from proving your work experience with relevant documents, the next step is to get this work experience assessed. A proper skill assessment is necessary, and you can know about the relevant skill evaluation agency through the department of immigration and border protection website. The skill evaluation agency should be contacted to get all the relevant information about getting the skills measured. They also submit the relevant forms to the immigration candidate.
