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:
