Australia is an advanced country that is facing skill shortage across its various industries due to its ageing population and retiring workforce. Hence, it has designed various skilled visas to invite skilled workers from overseas countries to come to Australia and get employed in the occupations which are facing great skill shortage.
An immigration consultancy service, with its years of experience helps you choose the right visa skilled visa category based on your profile. Applying for the right visa makes things relatively easy for you and vice versa of this is also true.
Australian government release Skilled Occupation List (SOL), which include skill shortage occupations. Moreover, various Australian states also release their won skilled occupation list. An applicant needs to select an occupation from relevant occupation list. However, he/she must have the skills and experience to get employed in the chosen occupation. Now again, you can get thorough assistance from consultancy service for choosing right occupation from right SOL to apply.
(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.)
To apply in point-based immigration system of Australia, you need to first arrange the key documents, i.e. IELTS test result with minimum level 6 (For English language proficiency) and Skill Assessment Report obtained from a relevant assessing authority to verify your skills for chosen occupation. A good consultancy service also provides you assistance in acquiring essential documents to apply.
