Occupation and Skills

When applying for a skilled visa, one of the most crucial factors is ensuring that your occupation is on the approved list of skilled occupations. Additionally, you'll need a positive skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority to confirm that your qualifications are equivalent to Australia's standards.

English Test

While Competent English is the minimum requirement for all skilled visas, obtaining proficient or superior scores in an English test can earn you extra points for your application. Strong English language skills are essential when applying for any of these visas.

Points Test & Invitation

To receive an invitation to apply for skilled visas, you must submit an Expression of Interest and score at least 65 points on the points test. This process is akin to an audition, as it's crucial to demonstrate your talents to the Australian government.

Points are allocated based on factors such as age, English language proficiency, work experience, education, and more. The more points you accumulate, the higher your chances of being invited to apply for the visa.
