Australian Skilled Visas

Australia Skilled Visas - Skill Select

If you are looking at permanent migration to Australia, then the most common route is through the Skilled Migration Program. This program emphasises skills that are currently in demand within Australia and encourages potential immigrants who possess these to apply.

The system is currently open to anyone with an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) - but even if this isn't you, don't fear, there are other options available.

In order to apply through this stream you must meet the following criteria:

  • Age: Applicants must be under the age of 50 at the time of their application
  • English Language Ability: Applicants must demonstrate a suitable level of English language ability; this is proven either through their passport nationality or an IELTS test
  • Skilled Occupation: Applicants must nominate an occupation on the SOL. This must be backed up by relevant skills and qualifications.

Looking promising? If you have an occupation on the SOL and fulfil the criteria above then you may be eligible for permanent migration to Australia. Call The Emigration Group today on 01244 321414 or 0207 1182526 to find out more information.

Alternately, fill in the contact form below and we will get back to you.

"Skill Select" is a new electronic service for managing Australia's Skilled Migration Program. Intending migrants without an Employer Sponsor will need to complete an "Expression of Interest" (EOI), then based on the information provided, will be allocated a score against the points test. Skill Select will then rank intending migrants scores against other EOI's. - The highest ranking scores across a range of occupations may then be invited to apply for a Skilled Visa.
