Occupation and Skills

One of the most important factors when applying for a skilled visa is ensuring that your occupation is on the approved list of skilled occupations. A positive skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority is also required. A skill assessment is mandatory, but it is to make sure your qualification is equivalent to that of Australia.

English Test

Competent English is a minimum requirement for all skilled visas, but obtaining proficient or superior scores in an English test can earn you additional points towards your application. It's essential to have strong English language skills when applying for any of these visas.

Points Test & Invitation

To be invited to apply for any of the skilled visas, you need to lodge an Expression of Interest and score at least 65 points on the points test. It's important to showcase your talents to the Australian government through this process, similar to an audition.

These points can be earned based on factors such as age, English language proficiency, work experience, education, and more. The more points you score, the better your chances of being invited to apply for the visa.
