    Hi John
    In order for your daughter to access a temporary skilled 485 visa, she would need to have studied an occupation on the skilled list and based on the qualifications you mention she can’t currently lodge a visa with that combination of study. She would need to study a different vocation OR increase her study level- if you can send us an email with more info we can advise further.

      Hi Brian

      If you have taken an English test for a 485 visa, you must be able to show an overall average of 6 and at least 5 in each band
