If you are also one among the thousands of Australian PR aspirants, find the key steps in this post to apply for and get the PR in Australia.
In order to apply for Australian PR (Permanent Residency), you need to pass through a point based immigration system of Australia. You can follow the stepwise process given below to apply for the permanent residency in Australia.
First of all, get yourself prepared for the Australian point based system. Get to know the key visa categories, which can get you the permanent residency in Australia, i.e. Subclass visa 189, 190, etc. Understand the point based system and check the Australia immigration points calculator to find out how you get point for your individual profile detail, i.e. education, language proficiency, skills, experience, etc.
Now get your file ready for the online point based system, i.e. gather the documents and certifications as required by the system, i.e. IELTS certification done with proper score, skill assessment done from relevant assessing authority, etc.
Now it’s time to nominate an occupation from SOL (Skilled Occupation List) or CSOL (Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List). These lists are the in-demand skilled occupation list across various states of Australia (SOL) or a consolidated list of sponsored in demand occupations in Australia (CSOL).
(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.)
Once all above things are done, submit an online EOI (Expression of Interest) via SkillSelect (online system to process EOIs in Australia). Mention all the key information about your profile, i.e. Age Education, language proficiency, experience, etc. and score minimum 60 points based on all the details.
Now if your profile is rich enough to be liked by Australian states or employers, you will get an Invitation to apply for the PR visa in Australia. You would require applying for the visa within 60 days of the receipt of the same. You would also require submitting health and character certifications along with the application. If everything about your application is found correct, you will the PR visa in 3-6 months.
