Claiming points for closely related occupation

Claiming points for closely related occupation

Hi friends !!! I’m applying for skill migration under the occupation ’ Supply and distribution manager - ANZSCO 133611’. I have got my skill assessment done and it has come out to be positive. I have more than 21 years of work experience as a logistics officer in the Indian Army. But AIM has cleared only 4.5 years of my work experience in the selected occupation which gives me only 5 points for work experience. However, there is another provision wherein I can claim 10 additional points for a closely related skilled occupation which must be:

  • in the same ANZSCO Unit Group or
  • consistent with a career advancement pathway or
  • determined by an assessing authority that it is closely related to your nominated occupation.

I’m claiming these points for another occupation called ‘Procurement Manager ANZSCO- 133612’. Could someone clarify the following points :-1:

  1. Will this claim be approved without getting the closely related skilled occupation assessed by the assessing body ?
  2. Can someone give an estimate from experience or from statistics if my occupation ‘Supply and distribution manager - ANZSCO 133611’ will get a call with 65 points including the state nominated points ?

Thanks for support and guidance !
