Skilled Visa

Do you want to move to Australia and use your know-how and your expertise in Perth? If so, have you ever heard of the Skilled Visa? If you are not 45 years old yet, you don’t need to get a sponsor to move to Australia. If you are a skilled worker and your profession is included in the Skilled Occupation List, you might be eligible to apply for a Skilled Visa.

At Get Your Visa, we know how tedious and long the application process for a Skilled Visa can be. That’s why we’re here to take the stress away and manage the whole process of lodging your visa for you.

Requirements and Restrictions

The Skilled Visa is for points-tested skilled workers who are not sponsored by an employer. It allows you to live and work in Australia as a permanent resident.

If your occupation is listed in the Skilled Occupations List, you just need to talk to our agents at Get Your Visa and see if you qualify for the visa. We’ll assist with the following when it comes to applying for your Skilled Visa:

  • Find the occupation that is on the relevant Skilled Occupations List (or ask us to do it on your behalf. You may discover the right occupation to be selected is different from the one you thought);
  • Apply for the Skills Assessment adequate for your skilled occupation; and
  • Lodge your Expression of Interest and apply for the visa once invited from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

It is our duty as a registered migration agency with years of experience to provide you with the most suitable solution in order to get your visa approved.

If you want to book a consultation with one of our migration agents about obtaining a Skilled Visa to work in Australia, please fill in our contact form or call us on (08) 9388 9193.
