Skilled Migration Visa in Australia
Australia is a sought-after destination for experienced migrants, and the SkillSelect program is open to individuals seeking a skilled migration visa to live and work in the country. Under SkillSelect, qualified applicants can obtain a permanent visa for Australia, utilizing their qualifications, work experience, and language skills to meet immigration requirements. The program operates as an online portal, connecting employers with potential skilled employees. General Skilled Migration (SkillSelect) replaced other skilled worker visas in 2012-2013. Applicants are required to score a minimum of 65 points from the General Skilled Migration (SkillSelect) table to be considered.
