Skilled Visas for Australia

To be eligible for a Skilled Visa 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.

  • Regional Provisional Family Sponsored Subclass 489

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