I am in Pakistan right now. I need an extra 5 points to move to Australia. These points could be gained using 3 years of experience in Pakistan or by 1 year of experience in Australia. If I work remotely from Pakistan for an Australian employer, will it be called Australian experience?


No. Australian work experience can only be gained by legally working in Australia for an entity with an Australian business number (ABN/ACN) and having the Australian tax records to prove it.

Can your Australian company sponsor you to come to Australia on a 457 visa? Then you wouldn't need to worry about points anymore.

  • There is no company offering me a job from Australia yet. I will start searching. – user9603 Sep 19 '16 at 16:15
