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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Be under 45 years of age
When you are invited to apply for a visa, you must be under 45 years old. If you turn 45 after the invitation to apply you may still submit a visa application.
- Meet the relevant English language criteria
To be eligible for a Skilled Migrant Visa, you must demonstrate that you meet the English language requirements. This can be accomplished by submitting proof of English language proficiency, such as the results of an approved English language test, IELTS or PTE.
- Meet Australia’s Health and Character requirement
You must meet Australia’s health and character criteria. This means that you are required to undergo a medical examination and provide a police clearance certificate to demonstrate that you are of good character.
- Apply for a visa within 60 days of receiving an invitation
Finally, if you are invited to apply for a Skilled Migrant Visa, you must submit your application within 60 days. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your invitation.
The Australian Government is seeking individuals with skills and experience in high-demand occupations, as well as English proficiency and relevant qualifications.
In conclusion, the Skilled Migrant Visa is an ideal choice for those wanting to immigrate to Australia. By understanding the aforementioned eligibility requirements, you can better prepare for the visa application process and increase your likelihood of success.
