If you are one among the thousands of Australia immigration aspirants, waiting for a sponsor, here is how you can make your dream come true of immigration to Australia without a sponsor or a job offer.
How to move to Australia without Job offer or Sponsorship?
If you are a skilled worker, you have two types of visa categories to choose, in order to apply for immigration to Australia, i.e.
- Sponsored/ Nominated Visas: As the title suggests, applying under this visa category, requires a nomination or sponsorship from an Australian state/territory/employer. You would require choosing an occupation from CSOL (Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List) to apply under this via category. The key visas in this category are subclass 190, 186, 187.
(Note: With effect from April 19, 2017, Australian Government has replaced the old Occupation lists, i.e. SOL & CSOL with new Skilled Occupation lists, i.e. Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) & Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).
The visa applicants, eligible to nominate an occupation from STSOL, also have access to some occupations in MLTSSL. Hence, both the lists (STSOL & MLTSSL) have been combined to form a new Combined List of Eligible Skilled Occupations and hence, there is no separate STSOL list.)
- Skill Independent Visa Subclass 189: It’s the only visa that offers you permanent residency in Australia without any sponsorship or nomination from Australian State, Territory or employer. It’s a point based visa wherein your profile will be reviewed based on your submitted profile factors, i.e. age, education, English proficiency, work experience, etc.
