Due to a shortage of skilled workers in Australia the government has put into place the Skilled Visa program. Skilled Visas are one of the more common ways of becoming a permanent resident.  Skilled visas are points tested, which means you must gain enough points to qualify to apply for the visa. To see if you meet the points requirement click here.

You must have your qualifications/skills assessed in an occupation on the appropriate Occupation list.

We also specialise in Skilled (State Sponsored) Visas which benefit people who may otherwise not meet the points test. These types of Skilled Visas are usually provisional at first, to ensure that the applicants work and live in the sponsoring State, as the purpose is to help boost the number of skilled employees in that State or Region.

If you are considering applying for any of these types of skilled visas feel free to contact us for our expert opinion.
