Are you ready to advance your career in Australia? Skilled migration may be the best option! Skilled Migration refers to Visa Subclasses 189, 190 and 491. Before you start the process, make sure you meet the requirements! 

The Skilled Migrant Visa is intended for individuals who possess in-demand skills and qualifications in Australia. To be eligible for this visa, you need to meet certain criteria, which we outline in more detail below:

  1. Check your Occupation
    First, make sure your profession is listed on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL). The SOL is a list of occupations that are in high demand in Australia, including a wide range of professions from engineering to healthcare to finance. Additionally, you must be able to pass the Points Test, which evaluates your eligibility based on elements including age, job history, and English language skills. You require a score of 65 or above – the more points the higher are your chances to be invited.
  2. Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect
    You must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) in SkillSelect after making sure that your profession is listed on the SOL and that you meet the point requirements. SkillSelect is an online system that allows you to enter your details and indicate your interest in applying for a Skilled Migrant Visa. The Australian Government will review your EOI and determine if you meet the eligibility requirements for the visa.
