Skilled Visas for Australia

To be eligible for Skilled Visas in Australia you must have an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List, have the right qualifications and work experience and generate a minimum of 65 points.

We can assist with the Skills Assessment for ALL occupations on the Skilled Occupation List for Australia.

There are 4 visa Subclasses:

  • Permanent Skilled Independent Subclass 189
  • Permanent State Nominated Subclass 190
  • Provisional Regional State Nominated Subclass 491
  • Regional Provisional Family Sponsored Subclass 491

Which one you are eligible for will depend upon the occupation and your points score.
