For skilled migrants, Australia is a very attractive destination. The SkillSelect program is for people who want to live and work in Australia and apply for a skilled migration visa. Using their qualifications, job experience, and language ability to meet the Australian immigration standards, skilled worker applicants can obtain a permanent Australia visa through the Skillselect program. The system works in a similar way to an online job board, matching companies with candidates.

In 2012-2013, the General Skilled Migration (Skillselect) program took the place of all existing Australian skilled worker visas. To be considered, applicants must score at least 65 points on the General Skilled Migration (Skillselect) points tables.

Steps of the SkillSelect Program

  1. Check first that you meet a minimum point score of 65, that your occupation is indeed included under the list of skilled occupations and that you are eligible to apply 
  2. An Expression of Interest (EOI) must be submitted, prior to being invited to apply for the visa  

 Before submitting your EOI, there are some basic requirements that need  to be met, along with an assessment with a minimum score of 65 points 

 You will only receive an invitation to apply if your EOI has been selected, regardless of whether you have achieved the minimum score of 65 points or not 

  1. Receive an invitation to apply  

 Applicants who score the best are invited to apply, across multiple occupations 

  1. Apply for a visa  

Applicants are given 60 days, from date of invitation, to submit the visa application
