Hello. This is my profile Bach of Engineering (2006) I.T. employment - 2006 -2008 (2 years) Masters degree in Australia - 1.5 years (2009 -10) Non-I.T. work experience - approx 2 years (2011-12) Unemployed from 2013 until now Recently got Australian Computer Society's positive skills assessment for the first I.T. work experience of 2 years. So, I am eligible to immigrate to AU. However, my question is, though it is all proper I meet ACS's requirements, as well as the requirements of the Department of Immigration of 2 years of work experience completed in the past 10 years, wouldn't it have a negative effect as my work experience for which I was assessed was completed long before and now? I have been unemployed for sometime. Please let me know if I can go ahead and lodge my 189 visa.
