Skilled Visa – Complete Permanent Visa Application Package
Includes Skills Assessment, State/Territory Sponsorship, Expression of Interest Management and Visa Application Services
Australia’s Skilled Migration Program offers permanent residency in Australia to skilled workers and their families, without the need for employer sponsorship.
The Skilled Migration Program has undergone major changes and we’re ready to be your committed partner throughout the process of qualifying for this program. We’ll work with you through each of the steps involved in this process to do everything possible to maximize your chances of qualifying for and being invited to apply for a permanent skilled visa for Australia.
The skilled visa program requires each applicant to lodge an Expression of Interest after they meet all of the qualifications for a skilled visa, including obtaining a positive skills assessment from the designated skills assessment authority in Australia, obtaining state sponsorship if necessary for their occupation, and passing the IELTS English Language test with a minimum of 6 on each band.
For the independent (unsponsored) skilled migrant visa (subclass 189), applicants must choose an occupation from the Skilled Occupation List. For State/Territory sponsored skilled migrant visas (subclass 190), applicants can choose an occupation from either the Skilled Occupation List or the Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List, however limits and quotas apply for most state sponsorships, and not all states will sponsor a particular occupation.
Our Skilled Permanent Visa package includes complete application preparation, lodging and management for every step of the process of applying for your skilled permanent visa for Australia:
Document and Information Preparation
We’ll work with you to gather all information and documents necessary for the skilled visa application process – you’ll have one form to complete, we’ll do the rest, and we’ll provide you with a quick checklist to make sure you’ve got all the necessary documents ready. And we’ll also help you choose the best ANZSCO occupation code for your particular circumstances based on approved codes for different visa types after studying your work experience and educational qualifications. We’ll also help you register for the IELTS English Language test.
Preparation and Lodgement of Your Skills Assessment Application
We’ll prepare the application and all documents necessary to apply for your Skills Assessment from the designated skills assessment authority in Australia nominated for your occupation. We’ll work with the skills assessment authority to respond to any enquiries on your behalf and answer any of their questions, and we’ll keep you in the loop 24/7 through our special Visa360 Visa Management System.
Preparation and Lodgement of your State/Territory Sponsorship Application
If your occupation is eligible for State/Territory sponsorship, we’ll prepare and lodge your State/Territory Sponsorship Application package with the appropriate authorities in Australia and will work with them throughout the approval process to respond to any requests for further information or documents.
Preparation and Lodgement of your Expression of Interest (EOI) Package
The next step in the process is lodging your Expression of Interest application package with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC). We’ll prepare the submission package and lodge on your behalf, after which we’ll provide complete management of your lodged Expression of Interest.
Managing your Expression of Interest
We provide comprehensive management of your lodged EOI for up to two years including monitoring and responding to any and all requests from DIAC for further information or changes, and alerting you to any regulation or policy changes which could affect your EOI. And our Visa360 system will automatically alert you when important dates occur such as the anniversary date of your current employment when it’s time to update your lodged EOI to reflect an additional year of work experience, and will also remind you when it’s time to renew your passport or any current Australian visas.
Completing Your Visa Application Forms Upon Invitation
If you are invited to apply for a Skilled visa, we’ll complete all of the necessary visa application forms on your behalf, prepare your complete visa application package, and lodge your visa application package. We’ll also work with you to complete applications for any Penal Clearance Certificates and Health Checks you may need for yourself and your family.
