Hi @era_fdo_1

Yes, ACS will deduct 2 year from total work experience for everyone.

They might consider the experience prior to education if it is in the same field.

Points claim depend on how many years ACS marks as relevant for your profile.

@Anil.Gupta thank you for prompt reply.

Since 2013 July to 2018 Jan my designation goes,
Company 01
Associate Software Engineer --> Software Engineer.

After that I moved to another company,
Since 2018 Jan To till now

  1. Does ACS deduct more years due to change of my designation. however, Im playing same ROLE and RESPONSIBILITIES past and current.?

Change of designation does not matter as long as the roles and responsibilities match the ANZSCO code.

Still my designation goes like above title,

  1. Can I apply “261212 - Web Developer” instead of “261313 - Software Engineer”?
  2. My wife’s sister lives in Melbourne and they have citizenship, hence, can they sponsor for me under “491” or “190” for Melbourne.(I will be the primary applicant).?

You have to choose the ANZSCO code that you think fits your job roles and responsibilities.

If ACS assessment is positive for your selected job code, you will be able to claim points for it.

I am not sure if you will qualify for sponsorship under 491. I will have to check.
190 does not have any relative sponsorship points. It is only state sponsored PR.
