Case Study - David B (Skilled Migration)

Background to Case

We completed David's skills assessment as an IT professional through the Australian Computer Society as the first step of the immigration process. At this time, David's specialisation was on the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL).

We then proceeded to lodge David's application for a skilled independent visa.

Unfortunately, after lodgement of David's application, the Migration Occupations in Demand List changed. This meant that David no longer was able to claim MODL points and so was not able to meet the pass mark.

In David's case, we were able to come up with an innovative solution which enabled him to still qualify for his visa. We applied for a state nomination through Victoria, as we were aware that his specialisation was in demand there. His state nomination was successful and David received his permanent visa.

At Acacia Immigration, we never give up on a client. Migration Regulations can change at any time, but because we ensure that our knowledge and skills are always up to date, we can usually come up with strategies to minimise risk for our clients.

David's Testimonial

I would like to thank Acacia Immigration and Mark Webster in particular for their very professional service in handling my application for a skilled migrant visa to Australia.

The application process for this kind of visa appears straightforward, but in fact is very complex.

The real value that Acacia added was looking into all the available options and advising on the best way to proceed at each step in the procedure so as to maximize my chances of success.

My case was borderline, but thanks to Mark's advice I understood all the available options and my visa has just been granted.
