The Application Process
Here’s a simplified process for General Skilled Migration. In case of questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Receive State Nomination
States must approve your Nomination for you to receive an invitation to apply for the visa. Each State has a different nomination process.
Apply for Visa
After receiving an invitation to apply for the visa from the DIBP, you will have 60 days to lodge a visa application. Without an invitation you are not eligible to apply.

Before applying for the visa it is important to ensure you meet the requirements for the visa. This includes:
You hold a Positive Skill Assessment for an occupation on the State Occupation List
You are currently aged between 18 – 45 years old
You have received a nomination by a State to apply for the visa
You have Competent English or higher (6 minimum in IELTS or holder of approved passports)

You meet the pass mark in the skilled migration points test – currently 65.
Our Success Stories
We are often asked by clients how to correctly calculate their points for general skilled migration – skilled independent 189, state nominated – 190 or regional nominated – 489 (soon to be 491).
Today I am going to give you an example of how we calculated the points for a previous client of ours – Adam. Adam totalled points of 65 including 5 points for state nomination. We then applied for NSW State Nominated visa (Subclass 190) and he is a permanent resident of Australia.
