So, you are planning to immigrate to Australia. But are you thoroughly prepared for the same?
Well, let’s explore a few basic aspects and process requirements for Australia immigration to understand how prepared you are for immigration to Australia.
Australia is one of the most popular advanced countries in the world. It is known for its strong economy, top living standards, vibrant lifestyle, and ideal immigration policies for skilled migrants. Australia also has one of the best immigration systems in the world.
Let’s find out key aspects of Australia immigration, which you must understand before applying for Australian visa.
Australia has one of the best point based online immigration systems in the world. Today, many advanced countries are either following or planning to follow Australia’s point based immigration system. If you have plans to immigrate to Australia as skilled migrant, you first need to know and understand the point based immigration system of Australia.
In this system points are allocated to every registered applicant based on his/her age, work experience, language ability, education, etc. factors. Candidates with best score get the ITA (invitation to apply) for Visa. You must score minimum 60 points to become eligible to apply.
If you are applying for Skilled Visa in Australia, you must be aware about the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) of Australia. Australia releases Skilled Occupation List (SOL) every year, wherein all the in demand occupations across the country get listed. To apply for skilled visa you need to choose an occupation (an occupation that matches your skills and experience) from the relevant skilled occupation list in Australia.
(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.)
These are the two crucial documents that you need to obtain before you apply for skilled visa in Australia. The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a globally recognized entity that organizes the English Tests and subsequently issues the proficiency level certificates to the applicants. You need to obtain minimum level 6 in all for language abilities in the IELTS test.
Skill Assessment Report is another key document you need to obtain from relevant assessing authority. This report certifies that you posses the right skills to get employed in your chosen occupation from Skilled Occupation List.
The SkillSelect is an online system that gather and process the EOI (Expression of Interest) submitted by the skilled visa applicants. Candidates interested in applying for the skilled visas, i.e. Subclass 189 visa, Subclass 190 visa or Subclass 489 visa need to submit the EOI in the SkillSelect System.
You must choose an appropriate skilled visa to move to Australia as Skilled Migrant. The Skilled Visas in Australia are, Subclass 189 visa (non-sponsored), Subclass 190 visa (state nominated), Subclass 186 Visa (Employer Sponsored), Subclass 489 (State Nominated- provisional), Subclass 457 Visa (employer sponsored- temporary), etc.
