How To Use Your Skills For Emigration To Australia

Your Skilled Emigration Options

There exist four principal pathways for Australian Permanent Residency as a skilled worker:

Skilled Independent (Subclass 189):

This provided the holder and their family Permanent Residency on arrival. Affording all the rights of an Australian Citizen bar the right to vote.

Skilled Nominated (Subclass 190):

Provides the peace of mind and protection of Permanent Residency on arrival for your family. You are free to live and work anywhere in Australia after your arrival.

Skilled Regional (Subclass 491):

Permanent Residency after three years of living and working in a designated region. These areas are usually in low-population zones that Australia would like to develop—offering a rural, peaceful lifestyle.

Family Sponsorship (Subclass 491F)

Permanent Residency after three years of living in a designated area. A close relative living in the area will be required to sponsor you. Affording the opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones.

The Process

All skilled emigration options share the same three application milestones. 

Skills Accreditation:

Australia requires all skilled migrants to have their skills and experience assessed before accrediting their overseas qualifications and experience. We assist in obtaining the necessary skills accreditation and presenting your case in the best possible light to the Australian immigration authorities.

Expression of Interest:

This is where you officially declare your intention to emigrate to Australia permanently. First impressions are crucial when submitting your case because you’ll be competing with professionals from around the world for a spot within the annual emigration quota. We ensure your case stands out and presents you in the best light.

Lodgement of Your Permanent Residency Visa:

At this stage, an Immigration Officer carefully reviews your case and supporting documents. Once they are satisfied, they issue your Permanent Residency Visa. With former Immigration Officers on our team, we understand their expectations and how to present your information effectively.

Frequently Asked

Australia has a strong economy and a high demand for skilled workers in a range of industries. As a skilled migrant, you have the same legal rights as an Australian Citizen to access highly-paid jobs.

Alternatively, you can even start your own business.

Employment references are the best way to show your previous experience. Preparing your references to not only corroborate but enhance your CV is imperative for Australian Immigration purposes. The references are required to be presented in a particular way to meet the emigration application standards.

British and Irish Citizens are not required to sit an English Test. However, to maximise your points, it is advisable that you do. Emigrating to Australia as a skilled worker is a competitive process. In our experience, every point counts.

Within the Immigration Department, Immigration Officers require each Skilled visa application to be “visa ready” prior to submission. To apply, individuals must accrue 65 points on the skills points table.

They must also possess a profession in demand, listed on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL), supplanting the previous ‘Skilled Occupation List’ (SOL) or the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL). Subsequently, cases are ushered into a competitive pool of analogous candidates, all aspiring for selection.

Australia is known for its high standard of living, with excellent healthcare, education, and social services. All skilled migrants are encouraged to access these services to enjoy for themselves the exceptional standard of living Australia offers.

Australia’s strong economy and high demand for skilled workers mean that there are many opportunities for career growth and advancement. Skilled migrants can be confident there will be high demand for their profession. Ensuring skilled migrants are well placed to take advantage of these opportunities.

Similar to 36 countries worldwide, Australia has based its tax laws on the model provided by the UK’s HMRC.

Consequently, Australia uses a progressive tax system where individuals with higher incomes are taxed at a higher rate. Nevertheless, skilled migrants benefit from relatively advantageous tax rates and deductions, allowing them to save money and accumulate wealth more efficiently.

Those under 35 years old, British or Irish, with no dependents and funds to support themselves can apply for a Working Holiday visa.

Furthermore, no one is a POM (prisoner of the Motherland) anymore. Everyone is free to leave whenever they wish.
