By means of free Initial Assessment we can advise you on the next steps required to become eligible for Independent Skilled migration (subclass 189) to Australia.
Additionally, we offer full application assistance, including the preparation and lodgement of your skills assessment application to the relevant assessing body. Our full application assistance service also includes the completion and checking of all visa application forms, compiling documents and liaison with the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) until a decision is made on your application.
The Independent Skilled visa allows highly skilled workers to live and work permanently in Australia. You may only apply for this visa if you have lodged an Expression of Interest, and have subsequently received an invitation to lodge a visa application.
At the time that you are invited to apply for this visa, you must:
- Be under 50 years of age
- Nominate an occupation that is included on the relevant Skilled Occupation List (SOL)
- Have your skills assessed by the appropriate Australian skills assessing authority as suitable for your nominated occupation
- Have the required level of English language proficiency
- Score at least the minimum allowable points on the relevant points test (which takes into account your age, English competency, qualifications and work experience, amongst other factors)
Please contact us if you would like one of our Australian immigration consultants to assess if can obtain permanent residency in Australia via Independent Skilled migration also known as a skilled independent subclass 189 visa.
