Different parts of Australia can also have different skills pressures.

If you are a ‘Skilled Tradesperson’ or a ‘Professional’ you could be one of approximately 200,000 migrants to be granted a visa. Some visas are ‘Points Tested’ and require a positive ‘Skills Assessment’. Whilst some visas will require a certain amount of work experience or specialised skills and most visas will require a formal qualification.

However, in some circumstances when the applicant has only ‘On-the-Job’ work experience, their skills will be assessed via a process called ‘Recognised Prior Learning’ to gauge if they have the necessary skills to progress.

If your occupation is on the lists above and if you would like to start your journey Down-Under please check out the ‘Home Page’ of our website for the many visa pathways at your disposal.

Thereafter, just scroll down to the bottom of any page to complete and
send us the ‘NO OBLIGATION ASSESSMENT’ form and we will assess your migration eligibility for FREE.
