Australia is a country that every skilled migration aspirant looks to move to over the years. This is the reason that DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection) every year receives tens of thousands of visa applications for its diversified visa categories, i.e. Skilled work visa, PR visa, visit visa, student visa, business visa, spousal visa, parent category visas, etc.
Skilled Migration- The Most applied visa category in Australia
Skilled Migration to Australia has been significant over the years. It’s a win-win situation for both when it comes to skilled migrants moving to Australia. The Australia needs skilled workers to meet the skills shortage in the country in the high demand occupations. On the other hand, a skilled worker like the high-income jobs, high employment rate, improved infrastructure facilities, and high living standards of Australia.
Immigration pathways in Australia
The Australian government has designed different visa categories to invite and accept immigrant workers in the country. Few common skilled visa categories of Australia are, Subclass 189 Permanent Visa, Subclass 190 State nominated permanent visa, Skilled Regional (Provisional) 489 Visa, Employer Nomination Scheme 186 Visa, etc.
The States of Australia, i.e. South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), etc. also invite the applications from foreign skilled workers for the nomination. The applicants apply for state nomination get the immigration points for the same and subsequently, apply for the desired visa category.
Point Based System
Australia’s point system for skilled migration has become largely popular worldwide. In fact, several other countries have either adopted or planning to adopt the Point based Immigration system of Australia. Australia’s organized online and point based immigration system is the hallmark of Immigration to Australia. This is one of the attraction points for worldwide immigrant workers looking to move to an overseas country for better life and career.
Australia reviews the applicants based on their scored points for the key credentials, i.e. age, work experience, qualification, language ability, etc. The profiles that receive highest points, get the invitation from the immigration authorities, to apply for the visa within 60 days of the receipt of the invitation.
Visa processing time
At a time when most of the countries have extremely difficult visa process or too high visa processing time, Australia has probably kept the shortest PR visa processing time for the applicants.
There are several skilled visas in Australia, which have visa processing time from 6 months to 12 months. Though Australia has reduced the immigration staff in recent past, however, the PR visa processing time of Australia is still quite short compared to many other advanced nations, i.e. USA green card visa.
