Is subclass 175 (Australia) not an option for me?

  1. I've just lodged my application for NSW registration. I've been working in the US for about 10 months now, 2 months to go to reach the 12/24 months work experience for permanent visa subclass 175. But because of my visa status i'm only allowed to work until the end of June here in the US which will make my work experience 11.5 months for the past 24 months. Can i not apply for the subclass 175?

    Well, the requirement for a 175 is at least 12 months in the last 24 months immediately before u lodge your visa application. You might also want to check if the hours you've worked for the 11.5 months will qualify for the 12 months requirement. I suggest you consult a migration agent or DIAC to get the best answer.
