Qualifications and Experience

Qualifications and experience concessions under the Orana region DAMA

Under the current Orana DAMA, there are no skill concessions for Level 1-3 Occupations, so a nominee must be able to meet the requirements of the substantive visa for which they are applying.

There are skills concessions for most, but not all, Level 4 Occupations on the Orana DAMA Occupations List as well as the Level 5 Occupation.

The occupations listed in the table below must comply with the following requirements as a minimum

  • A Skills Assessment from the relevant Authority, and
  • A relevant Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Certificate II or equivalent and at least 1.5 years (20 hours per week) relevant post-qualification experience, or;
  • A relevant AQF Certificate III and at least 1 year (20 hours per week) relevant post qualification experience; or
  • at least 2 years (38 hours per week) relevant experience.
