Australia invites skilled youths to settle and work in the country. For inviting skilled and eligible youths, Australia has a unique point-based system known as Skill Select. The Departments of Home Affairs in Australia offers three skilled PR visa categories. The three skilled visa categories under the Australia Point System are Sub Class 189, Sub Class 190, Sub Class 489.
What is the Skill Select?
The Skill Select is an online system by the Australian government to allow skilled youths to apply for the Australia PR. You must register your Expression of Interest or EOI before applying through Skill Select. Your EOI must contain the following details
- Desired/selected occupation
- Work experience
- English language proficiency
- Education evaluation report
- A skill assessment report related to the profession that you have chosen
- Business or investment experience ( if any)
After you register your EOI with the Skill Select program, your profile is visible to the Australian employers. They can nominate you for the Australian PR Visa. The EOI will also help the state/provincial government to select your profile. After registering your EOI, you will get your points. The automatic ranking system will assign you ranks based on your points. If your score is deemed eligible, you can apply for the Australia PR.
You must score at least 65 points on the Australia Point System to get the ITA. Here are the point distributions.
